New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
There is not a day that goes by that hits by The Classics IV are not heard on the radio somewhere in the world! Songs like "Spooky" and "Stormy" have permeated the airways for over 50 years! And now The Classics IV is back with a new single "Your Turn"!
Says lead singer Tom Garrett, "The Classics IV has a strong history of hits with songs like 'Spooky,' 'Stormy' and 'Traces (of Love).' The idea of a new song like 'Your Turn' is to stay relevant. Not just resting on the past but looking forward with new music and new opportunities. I don't know if there is a direct concept for this song. To us it's a little old school, a little country and hopefully a little contemporary."
The band recorded "Your Turn" with their great friend, Grammy Award winner Eric Nelson
at his Eclipse Studio in Normal, Illinois. Eric is a master at his craft and his studio is top notch recording without having to travel.
Says Tom, "I guess the message in the song should be perfect for just about everyone. We have all fallen in love and gotten burned at one time or another. No matter who you are 'Sooner or later, you'll get your turn.'"
Coming up this summer The Classics IV are excited to be part of the Happy Together Tour. They will do about 60 shows all across the country. This their 4th time on the tour and it is great fun for the artist and the audience alike!
