    ABC MUSIC TO RELEASE THE WILKINSONS NEW ALBUM, "HOME"

    ABC Music are thrilled to announce that they will release the new album from award winning Canadian group The Wilkinsons on May 5, 2007. It's titled "Home".

    The release coincides with the Australian debut of their television show, "The Wilkinsons" on the Country Music Channel (CMC) in April, 2007.

    From the 1998 North American release of their first album, Nothing But Love, which launched them to success with the single "26 Cents," through to this new release, The Wilkinsons have established themselves as one of the premiere artists in Canadian music.

    They have had #1 songs on country radio both in Canada and the U.S, as well as #1 videos on CMT and GAC. The trio received nominations for the CMA's Horizon Award and Vocal Group of the Year in 2000, as well as a nomination for Single of the Year from The Academy of Country Music Awards. They have twice been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group and have a Juno win and four nominations under their collective belts.

    With the debut of their television show, "The Wilkinsons" in 2006 in Canada, the band showed that their talent goes far beyond their music. The series, which is a hybrid of comedy, reality and improv, features the rest of The Wilkinsons family - mother Chris and youngest daughter Kiaya - and proved so popular that CMT Canada renewed it for a second season. The show premieres on CMC in Australia in April and will screen throughout 2007.

    Upon announcing the release, ABC Music's Tim Holland (Manager, Country Music Label) said, "We are thrilled to be releasing Home. The Wilkinsons have been an incredibly successful act in Canada and continue to record great music. With CMC screening their hilarious television series this year, we know that there will be a lot of interest in the group and the quality of the album should ensure that many music fans will want to buy it, so we are glad to be giving them this opportunity."

    The Wilkinsons "Home" will be released on May 5, 2007 through ABC Music/Warner Music Australia.

    The first single from the album, "Fast Car" goes to commercial radio on April 9, 2007.
