‘Catch of the Day’ – Anthony K – “Marry Me” [VIDEO]
Today's focus is on an artist who came to Nashville with two things on his back: a guitar and a New York rocker's chip. He also brought a pure love of the music that few others have found.

Behind the music is a man that worked with autistic children, a man that after watching a documentary about devastation after the tsunami in South Asia, put together a benefit concert. He has also used his talents on benefit shows to raise money for cancer research and treatment. All because he simply wants leave his mark on the world we all live in.

But the music is what its all about for this musician.

"Marry Me" is today's Catch of the Day, new music you haven't heard, but you'll want to hear it again.
