Multi-platinum recording artists, GREAT WHITE announced today that the band’s third single off of Elation, “Hard to Say Goodbye,” has reached No. 10 on the classic rock radio Mediabase chart. The heartfelt single has tugged the heartstrings of audiences, especially the military.
GREAT WHITE released Elation (the band’s 12th studio record) from Frontiers Records in May 2012. Elation thrives on GREAT WHITE’s signature grit and blues-hued sound, only marked with a new synergy.
“’Hard To Say Goodbye’ and ‘Promised Land’ should be staples on Nashville radio this summer,” wrote Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles’ Mitch Lafon.
“Great to see them back and rockin’ better than ever,” said ‘Hitman’, program director for KQXX FM (McAllen/Brownsville, Texas).
“’Hard to Say Goodbye’ from GREAT WHITE brings a great band back to radio, it’s a huge phone request with our ladies,” said Max Volume of KOZZ FM (Reno, Nev.).
