(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) December 6, 2012 – Last night, Rhett Walker garnered his first career GRAMMY nomination in the Best Contemporary Christian Music Song category for his contribution as a co-writer (along with Jeff Pardo) on the Rhett Walker Band hit single, “When Mercy Found Me.”

“I couldn’t believe it when I heard the news. I’m blown away! I’m here at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for the GRAMMY nomination event with my wife and our six-week-old daughter and I could not be more overwhelmed. I’m just a kid from the South that writes songs about life. To be recognized in this way just blows my mind. It is such an honor,” shared an enthusiastic Walker backstage between high fives with LL Cool J, Ne-Yo and Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard. “This is for all the Rhett Necks!” Walker spent the rest of the evening talking with media outlets including E!, The Insider, FOX News, CBS and more.

Nominations for the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards were announced last night during The Recording Academy’s “The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown To Music’s Biggest Night,” a one-hour CBS entertainment special broadcast live for the first time ever from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on GRAMMY Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and once again will be broadcast live in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround-sound on CBS from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

About Rhett Walker Band
Rhett Walker realized early on his need for mercy and redemption. Owning up to life’s challenges and fully embracing God’s grace, his personal trials forged in him a forthright nature in both life and music.

Rhett Walker Band’s debut Come To The River, featuring the powerful single “When Mercy Found Me,” crackles with the musical energy of Walker’s native South and bold themes of “grace with a calling” translated through songs reflecting a reverence for God, family and country that are both personal and universal.

In addition to band mates Kenny Davis (drums) and Joe Kane (guitar), plus leading studio players Jerry McPherson (The Civil Wars) as well as Tony Lucido (Kelly Clarkson) on guitar and bass respectively, Walker presents 10 tracks with equal measures of muscle and beauty on Come To The River. Most recent touring has included 2012 major summer festivals, a fall 30-city “The Believer” tour with Kutless and Fireflight and the “Proof Of Your Love” tour with for King & Country and Moriah Peters.
