Nashville, Tenn. Mar. 16, 2009… Known for his roles in films such as “How to Eat Fried Worms,” “Because of Winn Dixie” and Disney Channel’s “Minutemen,” 13 year old Luke Benward is now making his mark on the music scene with his first album Let Your Love Out releasing April 21, 2008 on iShine Records.

Produced by “In Crowd,” Shaun Shankel and Aaron Benward, the third generation singer’s first album contains ten tracks, five songs sung by Benward and the remaining 5 instrumental versions for fans to sing along with. Besides the title track, other songs include “Get Up,” “Shine” and “Everyday Hero,” a song Benward dedicated to his mother. Both tweens and parents will also be familiar with the song “Higher Love,” Benward’s version of Steve Winwood’s classic mega-hit.

Featured among the likes of Keith Urban, Taylor Swift and more, Benward was featured on iTunes ® “What’s Hot” music page the week of March 2 where fans were already weighing in on Let Your Love Out. Here is a sample of what fans are saying…

“I never thought of him being a singer, but wow, amazing. You wll not regret buying this EP.”

Amidst his album launch, Benward is also nominated for his second Young Artist Award for “Best Performance in a TV, Movie, Miniseries or Special by A Leading Young Actor” in “Minutemen.” The 13 year old took home a Young Artist Award in 2007 for his leading role in “How to Eat Fried Worms.” The 30th annual Young Artist Award’s show will take place on Sunday, Mar. 29 at the Universal Globe Theater in Studio City, CA.

Born and raised in Franklin, Tennessee, he spends his free time like most kids his age: playing football, video games and going to school. Lucky for the entertainment scene, Benward is not just your average 8th grader. Part of an entertainment family, Luke has acted since the age of five and now follows in the steps of his father and grandfather (music duo Aaron and Jeoffrey as well as Country duo Blue County) as he launches into the music scene with Let Your Love Out. Luke’s first break was at the age of five, appearing along side Mel Gibson in “We Were Soldiers age of five, appearing along side Mel Gibson in “We Were Soldiers.” Since then Benward has appeared in films such as “Because of Winn-Dixie”, “How to Eat Fried Worms”, Disney Channel’s ” Minutemen” and “Mostly Ghostly”, “Dog Gone” and more.
