Denny kicked things into overdrive with his CMA Music
Festival debut this summer, and it's been pedal to the metal ever since. The handsome vocalist recently hosted the syndicated television show Country Fix, opened for The Kentucky Headhunters, and released three acoustic music videos, dubbed The Dive Sessions, produced by Brian Harstine (Dolly Parton, Ke$ha). Strickland wrapped up a three-month long radio promotion tour and continues to write and gather songs for his upcoming CD.
His Euro-only release of the Conway Twitty classic "I'd Love To Lay You Down" spent four consecutive weeks at #1 on the Hotdisc Chart, and "How Far You Wanna Go" is currently Top Five. Plans are already underway for international shows next year.
"It's been a pretty amazing few months," admits the singer. "I wanna take this all the way, for sure." With a strong Country voice and a stage swagger to match, Denny's career definitely has "legs." Strickland is garnering heavy media attention, and recent features can be found on: The Boot,AXS.com, Digital
