(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Sonny Burgess has signed with the Dallas-based label CPI Records. His first single "Jesus and Bartenders" off his sophomore project, Stronger, has just been shipped to radio. The debut CPI album Stronger has a street date of October 4; distribution will be handled nationally by CBuJ Enterprises, Inc.
"We decided to release ‘Jesus and Bartenders’ as the first single simply from the amazing reactions we would get from the audience after I would perform it live," Burgess said. "People would come up to me after a show and almost always say something about that song. It is all about the fans and how the music makes them feel. If they dig it, you are probably doing something right."
"The first time I saw Sonny perform, it was clear to me he was a star." Karen Herbst, president of CPI Records said. "He has the voice, the charisma, the touch with the fans, the work ethic and let's not forget the looks to be a major force in the business. I am proud and honored to be working with Sonny and to be releasing his new album Stronger on CPI Records. The project is very appropriately named as he is truly stronger in all aspects of his career now." –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
