Lynchburg College Student Releases iTunes Single

Lynchburg, VA - A Lynchburg College Student is making his way up the charts after his single "I Won't Give Up" hit iTunes on Tuesday.

Eddy Faulkner signed a record deal with Premier Records last September. The label put his song on the radio before its release Tuesday and it rated in the top two-hundred radio airplay charts.

Now that it's been released, it is on the top 50 independent chart in the nation. Faulkner said it is an amazing feeling when his friends call him up and say they heard his song on the radio.

"It feels really awesome, like, just following my dreams and then inspiring people through that it's really cool, and inspiring people to follow their dreams that's like a really cool feeling," said Faulkner.

Faulkner said the next step is to put an album together.

He plans to have that out by the end of the year. You can find his song on iTunes here.
