|BRIAN LITTRELL’s “WELCOME HOME” NO.1 AT RADIO
31 July 2006
Backstreet Boy and Dove Award winning Brian Littrell celebrated his first No.1 radio single at Christian radio this week as “Welcome Home” took the top spot on the Inspirational chart. The title track is also in the Top 5 on Adult Contemporary charts, and is continuing its ascent.
“I get excited when I hear the song because of the promise that the Father will say, ‘Welcome Home’,” comments Jim Stanley of American Family Radio. “Too many times I listen with my head first rather than with my heart, but this song got through to both. Our listeners ‘got it’ from the first spin and
have loved it.”
In addition, Littrell released his first music video as a solo artist. The “Welcome Home” video was shot in Franklin, Tenn. in June and has already been streamed online more than 250 thousand times since its national premiere at Yahoo! Music on June 25th and is garnering attention at music video outlets nationwide.
Honored this year by the Gospel Music Association with his first Dove Award, Brian Littrell is widely-known as a 13-year member of the legendary pop group Backstreet Boys. He has contributed to worldwide sales in excess of 75 million records and has amassed legions of fans around the globe. Last summer, Backstreet Boys released Never Gone, its first studio album in five years. Brian lives in Atlanta with his wife Leighanne and their three-year-old son Baylee.
Produced by Billy Mann (Jessica Simpson, Ricky Martin); Dan Muckala (Backstreet Boys, Mandy Moore); and the production team of Mark Kibble and Dave Thomas (Take 6, Mariah Carey, CeCe Winans). Welcome Home reveals Littrell’s heart and plants a stake in the ground recognizing his source of greatest hope. A straight-ahead pop record, lyrically the project illuminates God’s unequivocal love for humanity and outlines the possibilities for life when people dedicate themselves to a higher calling.
