Girl Power Duo Releases “I Am A Woman” As Appropriate Fit In Alignment With National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Co-written by Grits & Glamour band member, and close personal friend, Mary Sue England alongside hit writer Thom Shephard, “I Am A Woman” is a true-to-life heart song that paints the perfect picture of the “every day woman” as an anthem of strength, endurance and resilience for women of all ages and all walks of life.
I'M A WARM HEART WITH COLD FEET
I'M A MONA LISA SMILE / AND THE TEARS YOU'LL NEVER SEE
I'M A PROMISE AND I'M A PRAYER
I AM FAITH / I AM HOPE / I'M THIS PINK RIBBON THAT I WEAR
AND I AM BRAVE / NO MATTER WHAT YOU TAKE AWAY
I AM A WOMAN
In early celebration, and in sporting style, the Tennessee Titans welcomed Grits & Glamour to perform “I Am A Woman” in recognition of breast cancer awareness month (on Sunday, October 6, 2013//Titans vs. the Chiefs) where the Titans cheerleaders invited cancer survivors onto the football field during the pregame presentation. Continuing their mutual initiative to share their heartfelt support of women who have become tragically touched by the unforgiving hands of breast cancer, the Opry stars will perform at the 5th Annual Opry Goes Pink Show as The Grand Ole Opry® joins Women Rock For The Cure™ in the fight against breast cancer on Tuesday evening, October 22. In the company of LeAnn Rimes, Amy Grant, Mandisa (who is making her Opry debut) and others, Morgan and Tillis will appear before the signature barn backdrop which will be spotlighted pink for the night in recognition of survivors and fighters of cancer.
“We have no words to express our personal honor and privilege to be included in this event—to step onto the historic Opry stage on such an important occasion to perform such a powerful song—empowering women (daughters, mothers and grandmothers),” says Pam Tillis. “When we heard ‘I Am A Woman’ for the first time, Pam and I knew it had to be on our new album; it’s one of those songs that captures life moments and the unspoken sentiment and emotions shared by every female—simple or complex. We are pleased to be part of this extraordinary affair, to speak on behalf of others who cannot and add volume to those who can,” adds Lorrie Morgan.
The vibrant Lorrie Morgan and Pam Tillis are trendsetters with identifiable voices of their own in the country music industry both as solo and duo recording artists. Award-winning entertainers, the ladies have 28 top ten hits between them, have enjoyed more than 18 million records sold worldwide and scored 12 number one hits combined. Road warriors who exude compelling strength and determination, Tillis and Morgan continue to support the momentum of their debut Grits & Glamour album DOS DIVAS (released July 23, 2013/distributed by Sony Red) as part of their Grits & Glamour Tour canvassing the country from east to west and are committed to carry on their own independent breast cancer awareness campaign in conjunction with the new single release.
