Andy May - 3

NASHVILLE, TN (February 1, 2017) – 2016 was a great year for Americana artist, Andy May. His latest album, Room for Roots, received a warm welcome from independent Americana and Country Music radio stations across the nation. The veteran singer-songwriter supported the project with many stateside performances, including MerleFest in North Carolina, the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas, and an album release concert at the Station Inn in Nashville, Tennessee, before taking his music overseas to audiences in Europe.
Since Room for Roots was released to radio last September, May’s song, “Woman in the Wings,” from the project spent two weeks at #2 on Roots Music Report’s (RMR) “Americana Country Song Chart” and nearly two months in the top 10. Another track from the album, “Life’s A Gig,” is currently at #22 on the IndieWorld Country Chart and has been in their top 40 for more than two months. The album itself reached #15 on the Roots 66 Airplay Report, #25 on RMR’s “Americana Country Album Chart,” and landed on RMR’s “Top Americana Country Album Chart” for 2016.
“With the response that Room for Roots has been getting from indie radio and from my peers and fans, as well as the heart-warming response I have been receiving at my live shows, I am excited to continue this adventure and see what’s next!” May said. Carrying his momentum into 2017, he has a performance at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum (with banjo legend, Curtis McPeake) already under his belt, return appearances at MerleFest and the Walnut Valley Festival booked, and other shows in the works.
Room for Roots features some of Nashville’s finest musicians and singers – as well as May’s own signature guitar work and rich vocals – and showcases his depth and versatility as a songwriter, guitarist, and arranger. It is May’s seventh release on his own IBMA award-winning independent label and production company, Swift River Music.
