National Parks Troubadour Gigi Love Joins Forces with Award Winning Artists for Compilation Album, “Listen to the Red Rock,” and Strikes a Chord for America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act.

Free Download Available to Support America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act

Salt Lake City, Oct. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gigi Love celebrates the upcoming release of “Listen to the Red Rock,” a compilation album in which she collaborates with several artists who are passionate about seeing America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act (ARRWA) signed into law. Many of these groups are involved and committed to furthering the 30X30 Goal to preserve 30% of the earth's land and water by 2030, the ARRWA would contribute 1.5% to that goal.

The album will be released on October 7, 2022 and will be available for sale on Amazon, iTunes, www.gigilove.com and Bandcamp.

Love's goal is to alert listeners to the importance of protecting these lands and to motivate them to reach out to their senators and representatives in support of this important legislation.

“Listen to the Red Rock” compiles a variety of folk, folk-rock, and bluegrass songs in support of the passage of ARRWA. By designating this federal land as wilderness, it will be protected and keep a viable corridor open to biodiversity and species connectivity, as well as prohibiting mining, drilling and development. In a first-of-its-kind act, the Navajo Nation has endorsed this congressional bill.

Along with Love, the line-up of wonderful musicians who are contributing their talents include Anke Summerhill, Cosy Sheridan, Kate MacLeod, Leraine Horstmanshoff, Marv Hamilton, Meander Cat, Pixie and the Partygrass Boys, Tyler Grant, and Walkin' Jim Stoltz. Every song carries listeners on a musical journey into the Red Rock canyonlands of Utah’s mythic wilderness.

“Listen to the Red Rock” is produced and released by Vast Horizons Music and Gigi Love 2022.
