Press Release:

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

Country newcomer and Arkansas native Denny Strickland salutes icon Kris Kristofferson with his acoustic video of “Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I’ll Ever Do Again).” The video, part of The Cellar Sessions (Strickland’s latest efforts with Producer/Director Brian Harstine), was filmed at The Sutler in Nashville. Close-ups and low-level lighting set an intimate scene within the speakeasy lounge. Strickland’s signature black hat and smooth vocals make a striking focal point, while rich fabrics and background details serve to hold the viewer’s attention. Kristofferson released “Loving Her Was Easier” on his album, THE SILVER TONGUED DEVIL AND I, in 1971. Roger Miller, Tompall & The Glaser Brothers, Waylon Jennings and Mark Chesnutt also recorded the song.


Denny’s early career was guided by The Statler Brothers’ longtime manager (and Bass player for Johnny Cash), Marshall Grant. Strickland soon found himself sharing the stage with legends Kris Kristofferson, Rosanne Cash and George Jones. With Grant’s passing in 2011, he took a brief hiatus; regrouping and refocusing his efforts. He launched his music career with twoMusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart hits: “Swerve On” and “How Far You Wanna Go.” He has hosted the internationally-syndicated television show COUNTRY FIX and opened for The Kentucky Headhunters and 3 Doors Down. He is an accomplished guitarist, keyboardist and American Quarter Horse Association horseman.
