NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 22, 2014) - 4K Records has announced that "Live It Loud" from The Greater Cause, the current CD from multiple Grammy and Dove Award-winning recording artist John Schlitt, has been released to both Christian and mainstream radio today.

The single, co-written by Schlitt; Dan Needham, the CD's producer; popular Nashville session player and touring musician Chris Rodriguez; and songwriter and recording artist Scott Faircloff, goes for adds today to Christian Rock and Mainstream Rock radio-formatted stations.

"I was a fan of Head East in the late '70s during my high school years," says Jeff McLaughlin, president of A-Sides Radio Promotion. "When John joined Petra in the '80s, I instantly became a huge Petra fan. You can imagine the excitement I have working with John to release 'Live It Loud' to Christian and mainstream radio as both Head East and Petra have celebrated their respective 40th anniversaries in recent months."

"Live It Loud" is the fourth single from his current CD, The Greater Cause. Schlitt is also currently promoting a Christmas CD, The Christmas Project, which was released digitally in November 2013 and is set for a brick and mortar release in the Fall.

About John Schlitt:

He has been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame as the lead singer of Petra during the years when the band won 10 Dove Awards and four Grammy Awards.

Schlitt was named the best rock singer in Christian music history by gospelmusicchannel.com.

Since Schlitt released his fourth solo CD, The Greater Cause, in May 2012, the legendary vocalist's busy schedule has included appearances on The Mike Huckabee Show, 700 Club Interactive and the Faith & Freedom Celebration--the faith-based kick-off to the Republican National Convention, as well as extensive international touring.
