Country star Steve Holy has stepped away from music for the last decade. The “Good Morning Beautiful” singer has been out of the spotlight since the release of his last full-length album, Love Don’t Run, in 2011. Where has he been?
Well, he spent the last ten years enjoying being a father to his two wonderful daughters, Ava and Ella. The singer is devoting his time watching his little girls “grow into the amazing young women they’re becoming” and making up for the moments he had to leave them to head out on tour.
But now that his girls are older and have become his biggest cheerleaders, are we going to get to see more of Holy?
Steve Holy’s Early Start In Music
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Steve Holy was the youngest among the eight children. He got his first start in music entertaining his grade school classmates with his impersonation of Conway Twitty. When he was 19, he joined the Mesquite Opry competition, which caught the attention of the legendary country producer Wilbur Rimes, the father of country star LeAnn Rimes.
This encounter landed Holy a record label contract with Curb Records in 1999. A year later, Holy released his debut album, Blue Moon, which yielded a No. 1 hit. The single “Good Morning Beautiful” landed on top of the chart, where it spent five amazing weeks. It was recorded as a soundtrack to the film Angel Eyes.
Holy managed to produce two more studio albums – 2006’s Brand New Girlfriend and 2011’s Love Don’t Run – before taking a break.
Thankfully, the wait for new music from Holy is over! Just December last year, Holy released his first album. The ten-track record, A Christmas To Remember, is filled with Christmas classics and one original that stands as the title track.
The singer has also expressed his desire to record another album this year, as he thinks “it’s time.”
