(Nashville, TN) January 30, 2009 – Phil Stacey, American Idol Season 6 finalist, announced his partnership with Reunion Records, a division of Provident Label Group, this week.

The relationship between Stacey and Reunion/Provident began last fall following his stellar performance at an event honoring Michael W. Smith at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Terry Hemmings, Provident’s President and CEO, attended the event and having been moved by Stacey’s performance, reached out to him to inquire more about his career plans.

“Phil is a great vocalist with a friendly and approachable style,” shares Hemmings. “He owned the room when he performed and I thought he’d be a great fit with our label group.”

“I am incredibly excited about joining the Reunion Records family,” notes Stacey. “The artists and music they have released over the years have helped shape and mold me into the person I am today. This will be an amazing journey.”

Stacey is currently working on his first project under the new deal, with producer Brown Bannister (Amy Grant, Mandisa, Steven Curtis Chapman) with an estimated release date set for later this summer.
