Troy Sneed Lays Down A Top Ten Hit
Gospel music lovers are flocking to the stores and logging on to iTunes to pick up Troy Sneed's new CD "All Is Well" (Emtro Gospel). The project featuring the Top 20 radio hit "Lay it Down" has debuted at #9 on next week's Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart.
"I am so proud of this record," Sneed says. "I put everything into it. I didn't want people to just hear the radio singles. I wanted my fans to be nudged into listening to the whole album because I really worked to make every song a statement and I stretched myself vocally and in terms of the style of the music. I think a lot of people will be surprised."

The new CD features urban-flavored songs of praise and worship ranging from the jazzy "Song for You" to "I Know You Hear Me" that recalls R. Kelly's "U Saved Me." The '70s soul groove "All is Well" peaked at #14 on Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs chart but "Lay it Down" is destined to go all the way to the Top Ten like Sneed's past hits "My Heart Says Yes", "Work it Out", "Hallelujah" and "The Struggle is Over" which spent several weeks at #1 on Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs chart.
Meanwhile, "Lay it Down" climbs to #15 on this week's Billboard Hot Gospel Songs chart. The inspiring message of "laying down" life's problems and a steady Caribbean drum pattern with Sneed's spine-tingling high notes for an infectious sing-a-long track. "Troy Sneed's latest record 'Lay it Down' has people calling and asking where they can get it," says Reggie Baker, program director at WPZZ in Richmond. "It is a great follow-up to 'My Heart Says Yes' and will be sung on Sunday mornings [at churches everywhere]." Mike Gamble, program director of the The Light: Sheridan Gospel Network adds that, "Troy has become the inspirational music stylist that delivers powerful words of encouragement in every song."
