Joplin, Missouri – Quickly rising in Southern Gospel Music, family group, The Goulds have released their most exciting project yet. With songs written by some of the best writers ever, this CD is going to become a must have for every Gospel Music fan.
Being a young group they had some obstacles to overcome, but this CD proves that they have been up to the task and are now well on their way to the top of the field in Gospel Music.
One of the biggest hurdles was crossed when outstanding producer Jim Brady came on to take charge of this project. Jim has a way of bringing the best out in an artist and even taking them to levels they never dreamed they could go to. That’s exactly what happened on with this CD. You are going to hear matured voices, tighter harmonies, and progressive arrangements that are impressive.
Having some of the greatest songwriters in Gospel Music supplying the songs The Goulds have a new recording with ten strong songs on it. With writers like Rebecca Peck, Kenna West, Dianne Wilkinson, Rodney Griffin. Jim Brady, and others this CD can’t help but be a winner.
The enthusiastic Patriarch of the group, Tim Gould stated, “We are so excited with what God is doing with our family and the music He so graciously allows us to sing. To be able to work this closely with Jim Brady is an incredible opportunity. Not only is he a great singer and songwriter, but he is a genuine man with a heart of gold who believes in our family. His friendship and mentoring means the world to us. This project has so many well known songwriters that we still have to pinch ourselves to make sure we have really recorded such a project. We had dreamed of recording songs from some of the top songwriters in our genre but never thought God would bring it about this quickly. Our hope and prayer is that the songs on this project not only lead people to Jesus but that it also inspires, encourages and meets the listeners needs in a way that only God could do.” .
Producer Jim Brady commented, “I have a special place in my heart for family groups, because it was with my family that I sang my first notes. The Goulds are a special family who works extremely hard at what they do and I can’t help but appreciate how they minister with so much heart.” .

Hendersonville, TN (July 30th, 2015) – Amber Nelon Thompson is no stranger to music. As a third generation singer, Amber has followed in her mother, Kelly Nelon Clark, and grandfather, Rex Nelon’s shoes as a gifted communicator of the gospel. The Dove Award nominee has been a regular on the Gaither Homecoming stage and videos since childhood, and has recently stepped out as an incredibly talented soloist, while still traveling full-time with her family, The Nelons.
Amber Nelon Thompson’s new Daywind solo release, Just Sing, is no exception to the standard of excellence that is synonymous with the Nelon name. The full-length follow up to 2014’s EP, Without Your Love, Just Sing is chock-full of light-heartedly fun melodies, relevant lyrics and powerhouse ballads. Produced by Jason Clark and with guest appearances by Bill Gaither, Michael English, The Nelons and Joseph Habedank, the project spans across generations and genres, leaving everyone who hears it with a smile.
“Amber has a special gift and it shines through on every song of Just Sing,” adds Scott Godsey, VP and A&R Director of Daywind Records. “It’s more than just great singing, this is an exceptional collection of songs that will encourage the listener. Amber has the ability to make a lyric come alive when she sings. We are excited about the opportunities surrounding this project and what the future holds for Amber as an artist!”
Just Sing is available at Christian retail stores across the country and digitally at iTunes and other outlets. Bulk purchasing for gift and ministry purposes is available by calling 1.800.635.9581.

HENDERSONVILLE, TN -Nationally known and multi-award winning Gospel artist, The Freemans bus caught fire in Canada about 30 minutes after leaving a show on their last Canadian Tour Date late Sunday evening as they were headed back home to Hendersonville.
Caylon Freeman, drummer for the band saw smoke in the bunk area of the bus and went for the fire extinguisher. The driver was able to pull over immediately where everyone exited the bus. Witnesses say it appeared to be an electrical fire which was isolated to the bunk areas. The fire was contained and they were able to travel the rest of the way home with the power cut off to that area of the bus. There were three other people on the bus at the time the fire started which included singers Chris, Darrell and Joe Freeman.
Chris Freeman stated, “We are so grateful to have been on the bus at the time and were able to take immediate action. We had just fueled the bus and were headed home. If we had been away from the bus it could have been a very different story. We thank God for his protection over us.”
If you would like to interview The Freemans contact AG Publicity at email@example.com .
