MARCUS HUMMON'S DEBUT SINGLE 'GOD'S COUNTRY' GETS RAVE REVIEW IN BILLBOARD MAGAZINE'S PRESTIGIOUS NEW & NOTEWORTHY SECTION

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Columbia Recording artist Marcus Hummon garnered exceptional notoriety for his debut single "God's Country" which appears in the New & Noteworthy section of Billboard's March 9 issue. Country singles are rarely selected for this prestigious section which highlights the best in music.

The heralded review of "God's County" reads: "From the exceptional production to the lyric's heartfelt integrity to the vocals' passion for life, this country single is a winner." Billboard's single critic cheers: "This uptempo tune is the musical equivalent of a Norman Rockwell painting. Hummon paints vivid characters and images with his lyrics and breathes life into them with his wonderful voice. One of many great cuts on Hummon's All In Good Time album, this single should hit country radio like a breath of fresh air."

Marcus made his Billboard single chart debut in the magazine's March 16 issue and achieves this recent success on the heels of country radio's annual seminar where Marcus garnered rousing applause from the influential audience for his energetic showcase.
