The company known for their professional and amateur series hand-crafted bats is now offering a “Matt Felts Signature Series” baseball bat. The bat has Matt Felts signature and logo on the barrel of the bat.

As many fans of Gospel music may know, Matt played college and professional baseball. “Baseball and music have always been a big part of my life. My new solo ministry has allowed me to get back on the field. I am very excited to be partnering with Smacker Bats,” stated Matt Felts. Besides his solo ministry and his duties as General Manager of Butler Music Group, Matt continues to play ball in a vintage baseball league that travels the country. “We are thrilled to partner with Matt Felts on the release of these bats. Matt has long used Smacker Bats on the field, with the release of his new album we wanted to be a part of what he was doing,” added Brian Carter, Smacker Bats.

Matt Felts new solo album, Based On A True Story, includes a unique song entitled, “The First Baseball Game” that features baseball legend Don Mattingly. “It’s an honor to have the baseball community support Gospel music,” added Matt. The album was co-sponsored by the Nashville Sounds, the minor league affiliate of the Oakland A’s. Recently, Matt was contacted by ESPN and the Dan Patrick Show about being a guest in the future. Stay tuned for more details.
The Smacker Bats “Matt Felts Signature Series” bats are available at smackerbats.com. Matt Felts has already started collecting hits on the radio as a soloist and he looks to keep adding them on the field with his partnership with Smacker Bats. To get more information, go to www.mattfelts.com.

The Collingsworth Family Releases Landmark DVD Project

The Collingsworth Family Releases Landmark DVD Project

The Collingsworth Family Releases Landmark DVD Project

Nashville, TN  – StowTown Records is pleased to announce the brand new DVD release from The Collingsworth Family. That Day Is Coming released on Sept. 15 and is distributed worldwide by Sony/Provident Distribution.

The multi-award winning family group was thrilled to put together this very special project. It was recorded live in front of a sold-out audience at First Wesleyan Church in High Point, NC, with a live band and members of the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra.
“The That Day is Coming video was, by far, our most complex and challenging project to date.  However, it is the one we are most happy with the end results,” said Phil Collingsworth. “With great effort comes great satisfaction when you how the results of hundreds of hours of labor in your hands.”
The Collingsworth Family performs all 13 powerful songs from their current StowTown album, including “That Day is Coming,” “Ever Faithful” and “When He Carries Me Away.” 
“Having a full orchestra and band performing every song with you in front of a sold-out audience requires a great deal of prep-time and structuring. Then we spend time bathing it all with tons of prayer,” added Phil. “The night went so incredibly smooth, and we attribute that to the many, many people all over the country who were watching via the livestream and praying for us right at the same time. We were able to capture the emotion of the room on film and add in so many great behind-the-scenes interviews, which made the songs literally come to life.”
In addition to album features, they also performed hits such as, “Show a Little Bit of Love and Kindness,” “Keep On the Firing Line” and “Hallelujah Chorus.”
“Of all the projects we’ve released in the 18 years we have been on the road, this one best portrays the heart of the Collingsworth Family and our passion for ministry!” Phil concluded. “We certainly hope you catch the glimpses of Jesus through the viewing of the DVD. It was our goal to lift Him up, so people would be drawn to The Master.”

MICHAEL ENGLISH UNVEILS LOVE IS THE GOLDEN RULE TODAY

Written by Staff on September 18, 2017 – 10:23 am -

MICHAEL ENGLISH UNVEILS LOVE IS THE GOLDEN RULE TODAY

MICHAEL ENGLISH UNVEILS LOVE IS THE GOLDEN RULE TODAY

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 15, 2017) – Multi-award winning, critically-acclaimed and beloved artist, Michael English, is back with one of the most highly-anticipated projects of 2017, Love Is The Golden Rule. The project – releasing today on Daywind Records – is filled with the central theme of love, from the opening song “My Love,” the rollicking “One Drop Of Love,” to the thought-provoking title track, “Love Is The Golden Rule.”

From the onset of this project, English had one goal – to record messages of unity and love through Christ. “When I set out to record this new project, I was struck by how divided our country was and the amount of hate that was on the television every time I turned it on. I decided to record a project that would be positive, uplifting, and promote love to one another. I wanted this music to bring people together.”
Described as ‘vintage English’ with a ‘fresh spin,’ the project will thrill longtime listeners of Michael’s music while drawing on the journey of life Michael has traveled. Jason Clark (Nelons, Amber Nelon Thompson) produced all but one song and expertly crafted the project to feature the distinct voice and style that have made English a fan-favorite since his early days in Christian music. Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, Chicago) lent his talents to produce “The Living Years,” a pensive cover of the Mike + the Mechanics hit song.
“It is an honor to produce and arrange this project for one of the world’s most legendary singers and performers,” says producer Jason Clark. “As a lifelong fan, I suggested to Michael that we make this recording the one his fan base has been long been waiting for. It is undoubtedly, unashamedly ‘Vintage English.’ Production took over eight months, as we assembled a cast of the world’s greatest musicians, writers, singers, engineers, from various genres of music. Michael worked extremely hard and what he delivered on this recording, I believe, is some of his best work in his entire career.”
Michael English

“Love Is the Golden Rule,” the debut single, is already making waves at Christian radio and is expected to be a major player at radio this fall.

Love Is The Golden Rule, on Daywind Records, is available at iTunes, Amazon Music, and all digital retailers as well aswww.MichaelEnglishMusic.com.
Love Is The Golden Rule Track Listing:
