GOSPEL HIT MAKER TROY SNEED STRIKES BILLBOARD TOP 10 WITH RADIO SMASH “LAY IT DOWN”
Gospel Hit Maker, Troy Sneed, continues to put his adopted hometown of Jacksonville on the national musical map with, “Lay it Down,” his fifth Top Ten Billboard Hot Gospel Songs smash. This week, it ranks at #10* (with a bullet). “In a time when so many people are struggling with debts, unemployment, marital issues and you name it – just fill in the blank, this song just reminds us that we can take any problem to God and let Him solve it, “ Sneed says.
The simple refrain simply says “all of your problems, all of your pain… lay it down” and it’s been steadily building momentum with audiences since its release this summer. It earned an 11% gain in audience this week for a weekly listening audience of over 1.7 million listeners. “Troy Sneed has made it happen once again with a powerful inspirational message that’s simple and to the point in this season of life,” says Connye Bryant at WHLW in Montgomery, AL. “This song is definitely going to be another hit for the Worship Master, Mr. Troy Sneed!”
“Troy Sneed’s latest record `Lay it Down’ has people calling and asking where they can get it,” says Reggie Baker, program director at WPZZ in Richmond. “It is a great follow-up to `My Heart Says Yes’ and will be sung on Sunday mornings [at churches everywhere].” Mike Gamble, program director of the The Light: Sheridan Gospel Network adds that, “”Troy has become the inspirational music stylist that delivers powerful words of encouragement in every song.
The song is featured on Sneed’s latest Top ten selling CD, “All Is Well” (Emtro Gospel). The new CD features urban-flavored songs of praise and worship ranging from the jazzy “Song for You” to “I Know You Hear Me” that recalls R. Kelly’s “U Saved Me.” The album received a sterling review from the popular blog Da Gospel Truth: “Full of refreshing live instrumentation, simple melodies, relatable lyrical content and smooth vocals… The brightness and purity of the vocals shine through on every song… if you don’t pick it up, it’s your loss.” For more information on Troy Sneed, visit Sneed online at www.troysneed.net or follow him on Twitter @TroySneed.
