Nashville, TN (July 15, 2016) â€“That Old Time Religion is released from Tim Atwood along with Texas based i2i Records.Â Receiving inspiration from a visit to the Johnny Cash Farm, Atwood knew this was what he had to do.Â While enjoying the accomplishment of completion of his first gospel release, Atwood also announces collaboration with Monarch Talent Management (MTM). Â Tim Atwood will be represented by MTM in an effort to impact That Old Time Religion through greater promotion and media exposure.
â€œI spent most of my life playing piano for country music’s elite on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, but I grew up playing gospel music in little country churchesâ€, explained Atwood. Â â€œI was in the middle of recording a second country album when God spoke to my heart and said it’s time to come home. Â I know what talent the Good Lord gave me. Â That Old Time Religion is my gift to God,â€ Atwood continued.
Atwood has a long history of musical accomplishments.Â With over 38 years experience on the stage of The Grand Ole Opry, he has played piano for many legends.Â Many of those Grand Ole Opry friends appear on That Old Time Religion alongside Tim…professing their love of Jesus in song.
