Champion Sisters Release New Single BEAUTY WAY
The Champion Sisters today announced the release of Beauty Way, a new single from their third album, Unfit To Be Tied, along with the single's video. Mark Andes, in collaboration with Eliza Gilkyson, wrote the song.
Beauty Way touches on the sisters' loss of their father, George Champion, a well-known country western musician and singer who passed away at age 39. George Champion played with notable country musicians including Johnny Bush, George Jones and Utah Carl. The sisters, Brenda, Sandra, and Molly, found inspiration through his life to pursue their passions in music, and this song pays tribute to his legacy.
The video was produced by Sandra Champion's youngest son, Christian Torres, with additional post-production by Ross Wells of Zenfilm Studios, includes scenes from the Champion Sisters' childhood and their father's career along with glimpses of the trio honoring their father's memory. The video for Beauty Way can be viewed on YouTube and Vevo.
Unfit To Be Tied,recorded under the guidance of Mark Andes and Andy Bradley, was released in September 2012. The album's first single, License to Love, and accompanying video, were also released at that time. The album was recorded and produced at SugarHill Recording, the studio where their father recorded in the 1950s and 60s.
"It was really special for us to record Beauty Way, especially since working in the same studio where our father recorded," said Brenda Champion. "We didn't even know its significance until the studio historian brought it to our attention."
Native Houstonians, The Champion Sisters, Brenda, Sandra and Molly grew up with a love for country music and the Texas lifestyle. Growing up, the sisters studied piano, music theory and woodwind instruments. They began their careers singing contemporary gospel songs, creating hits that landed on the top 10 of Houston radio charts. As their careers have progressed, they have reverted to their country roots and followed in the footsteps of their late father. The Champion Sisters have performed at a variety of high profile events including the Houston Grand Opera, the Mayor's Annual Christmas Tree Lighting, the Houston Symphony's Star Spangled Salute, at an event honoring George H. Bush, Sr. and before the Houston Texans and Houston Astros. For more information, visit http://www.championsisters.com and http://www.facebook.com/championsisters.
