About Guy Penrod
With the launch of Breathe Deep, Guy Penrod will tell you he’s not looking to change the face of country music. Only to bring a new prospective to its’ best attributes. And to the question—‘is this a new Guy Penrod?’ –there’s a short answer. “I haven’t changed a lick—I just wanted a fresh wrapper,” he notes. “What’s ‘new’ is the prospective that the music is fresh and different than what I was doing with the Vocal Band. But as far as who I am and what I’ve represented over the past fourteen years with the Gaithers, or how my wife and family have chosen to live our lives, there’s no departure. That’s the well from which I draw, and it won’t change.”“I wanted with the new album to kick it out there in a little bigger pond. I believe that country is one the best genres of music from which to tell the American story. To me, music is a way of telling the story of every day America and a country song has the ability to tell a story with the potential for the positive. Songs can literally become modern day parables on how to live life. In fact, there’s a lot of ‘gospel’ on the thirteen songs we just recorded—not my answers, but God’s way wrapped in everyday language with a country feel.”
Born in Abilene, Texas, the son of a preacher, Guy grew up in church with a desire to somehow impact the world. “I learned pretty early in life that music was a good vehicle for me.” He nurtured the gift of music growing up by singing in church and school and recalls his mom and dad telling him the story of how they stood him up in a folding chair as a 3-year old for his debut solo of “Fill My Cup Lord.” From there, the powerful voice that would grow through experiences in school plays, and singing with local groups and theater productions, would lead subsequently to graduation with a vocal scholarship to Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. He took a job teaching voice at a private school in Georgia before opting a year later to heading back into vocal performance and a move to Nashville with wife, Angie. “The closest definition I’ve found for my music is ‘life music.’ I don’t presume that everyone lives the same lifestyle. I have my wife, Angie, who’s been the love of my life for twenty-five years, we have eight kids, seven boys and one girl ages seventeen down to three that we homeschool, I live in the country on a farm in a log house, drive a tractor and a Ford F-350. For us as a family–as we’ll tried to put God at the center of our lives we’ve found peace even in the middle of life’s storms. Those listening to the new music may live in Manhattan in a high rise and go to work in a limo, but at the end of the day—‘life is life’ and we all have joys and heartaches as well as similar basic needs and desires. That’s the common thread that runs through my music that I think everyone can identity with.” “My dad used to say, ‘Just take a deep breath son and…jump in, get up there and sing.. watch the ball, get back in the saddle’ …you get the idea. I believe that’s good advice for living and it is that spirit I say…brew a good cup of coffee, sit down for a minute, ponder the treasures of life, take a listen, and Breathe Deep.”
