[Williamsport, PA 8-20-2012] The fans of 20+ year Country/Gospel recording artist Johnny Jolin were stunned when Jolin abruptly announced his retirement to his fans with a formal statement via his official website, Facebook and Twitter as well as personal messages to his band and management.

The statement reads: "I want to let all my fans know effective today I'm retiring from playing music live as Johnny Jolin or in any other form. The Lord has brought me to realize the pride that I need to let go of from the last 20 years of building the Johnny Jolin name. The Lord can't use me the way He wants until I'm willing to let go of that pride and I want God to use me to my full ability. In a way, I've become my own idol and that's not a good thing. If you're familiar with the story of Peter from the Bible you know what I'm talking about. Thanks for all your support and God Bless each and everyone of you."

Jolin's career began after winning a talent search competition during his ten years of service in the U.S. Army. Before reaching Country “head-liner” status he spent his early days opening for many popular Nashville recordings artists of the 1990s including Confederate Railroad, Hank Williams III, David Lee Murphy, Ricochet, Jeff Carson, Mel McDaniel, Chely Wright and Steve Wariner. Hank Williams III deemed Jolin “The Eddie Van Halen of Country Music” because of his blend of guitar solos and country classics which also garnered him the title Rockin' Rollin' Johnny Jolin. He is known for his “raw, edgy vocal” and is sometimes compared to Country Music great John Anderson.

In 2008, his music took a noticeable shift to the gospel format as he released four Christian Country singles notching two Top 30 songs including the #6 hit "Thank God" which spent an impressive eight months on the Christian Country Top 100 and also produced the viral music video of the same name as well as his current radio single "Valley of the Shadow" which just debuted at #81 on the Christian Voice Top 100.

LWM Media formally commented on Jolin's retirement: "Johnny is a man of integrity and we respect him and his callings in life. We support you, Johnny and bid you God speed."
