Phil Stacey releases "Old Glory" single for holiday

Tuesday, July 1, 2008 – Phil Stacey is releasing the patriotic anthem "Old Glory" to country radio for airplay over the Fourth of July holiday. Stacey was inspired to write "Old Glory" while serving active duty in the United States Navy. The song was not on his self-titled debut, which came out in April.

"Phil has been playing this song during radio visits, his live shows and even a few weeks ago at the Grand Ole Opry where he got a standing ovation," says Lyric Street Records VP Promotion Kevin Herring. "The song always gets a great reaction and we've fielded a lot of calls from our friends in radio asking where they can get the song."

"I'm proud to have the chance to record this song," said Stacey. "I wrote it several years ago while I was still in the Navy, and it means a lot to get to share it with all the country music fans to honor our service members."

Stacey was a performer on the sixth season of American Idol. In 2003, Stacey enlisted in the United States Navy where he served as a Musician Third Class at Navy Band Southeast in Jacksonville, Fla. He just completed his four-year commitment to the U.S. Navy and is still in the Navy Reserves.
