Troy's "Sound of the South" releases new CD

Troy University's "Sound of the South" Marching Band has released a new compact disc, called "The Sound's in Town: Coast to Coast," according to Director of Bands Ralph E. Ford.

The new CD features numbers performed by the marching band in various halftime shows between 2002 and 2006, Ford said. It was produced by Ilium Records, a Troy-based recording studio. This is the second CD released by the marching band in the last two years, and  "Coast to Coast" is the fourth album/CD produced in "The Sound's in Town" series.

"I was looking for a theme for the CD that would accurately reflect the nationwide focus of the marching band," Ford said. "Over the past few years we have performed, literally, from coast to coast in places such as San Jose, CA, Miami, New Orleans and a lot of points in between."

Ford said "Coast to Coast" will be a successful follow-up CD to the popular "Trojan Jams," also produced by Ilium Records. To order "The Sound's in Town: Coast to Coast," visit www.iliumrecords.com.

The "Sound of the South" has been featured on the ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN, FOX Sports, MizLou, FOX SportsSouth and USA television networks. The band was one of four college bands selected for the 1986 Coca-Cola Centennial Parade. It has represented the State of Alabama in the Presidential Inaugural Parades of 1969, 1973, 1984, and 1989. In recent years, the "Sound" has performed with Grammy Award-winning artists Brian McKnight, Lee Greenwood and The Temptations.
