ABOUT JASON CRABB

WHATEVER THE ROAD

GRAMMY® winner Jason Crabb is well known as one of the most compelling voices in any genre of music.

Jason Crabb

Jason Crabb

With his power, range, and passion, he has moved easily among musical styles including gospel, country, pop and southern gospel. With his Reunion Records debut, Whatever The Road, fans of that incredible talent will gain a deeper understanding of the heart behind the voice.

In recording his fifth solo album, Crabb poured himself into his songwriting and the payoff is his most personal album yet. In further expanding his creative resume, the dynamic young artist explores the things that matter most and the greatness of the God he serves. “You have to reach in deeper places to write music, and with songwriting you have to stay there for a little bit,” says Crabb, who co-wrote seven of the album’s ten songs.

Working with producers Jason Ingram (Chris Tomlin, Tenth Avenue North, Kari Jobe), and Paul Mabury (Lauren Daigle, One Sonic Society), Crabb takes a bold new step forward, not just lyrically but stylistically, and has finely honed a collection of anthems for the church that have sophisticated pop sensibilities as well as deep, substantive lyrics.

Christmas Challenge by Rob Patz

Written by Staff on December 17, 2017 – 5:34 am -

Christmas Challenge by Rob PatzPublisher’s Point for Christmas and December 2017 by Rob Patz

 

‘Tis the season. I wonder how many times this year I will actually say that, and I wonder how many people really understand what we celebrate during the season. As Christians, we celebrate the fact that God saw such a need that He would send His only son, knowing full well that His son would die on a cross.

 

I have to say that there are times where I forget to take in the full impact of what Christmas really means. We all get so busy sharing the holiday with family and friends that we forget the impact of a baby being born in a manger. No, we as modern-day humans don’t understand what a manger really is. A manger wasn’t a softly made bed like the paintings that we see. They say it was hewn out of stone and probably was very rustic. It’s difficult to think that the savior of the world was born under such conditions.

 

That should make us all reevaluate how we look at the holidays. I’m not saying you should take down your tree, and I’m not saying you should stop buying gifts, I’m just saying that maybe this year, during the holiday, you should sit down and read the Christmas story and reflect on the magnitude of this perfect gift, which we truly celebrate.

 

‘During the holiday season …’ – that way I can work Thanksgiving in as well, since I’m writing to you before Thanksgiving – I spend a lot of time reflecting on life. I think we all do. Like everyone, I miss family during this time of year. There are those that have gone on before us, those who we don’t have the opportunity to call or see during the holidays, and then we have those who have – with time – drifted out of our lives. This includes my family as much as those that are close friends. During this time of year, I often wonder what they’re doing, or how they are. I usually take a few minutes, especially on Thanksgiving, to pray for them.

 

Christmas 2017As you read this, for most of you, Christmas is in full swing. My family and I enjoy this time of year immensely. It’s an opportunity to not only look forward, but to look back at the past year.

 

This was a year full of changes and challenges. As someone who embraces change, some of the changes were good … some of them, not so much. As far as challenges, like everyone, I had different sets of challenges, but with challenges, we know we are moving forward. As much as we embrace change, we should also learn to embrace challenges.

 

What challenges are laid before you, and what does God have for you to do within that challenge? I learned that over this past year that sometimes God is creating the challenge to strengthen us. I recently heard a pastor say that without challenges we will see no growth, for in the challenge God creates in us the wisdom to move forward. I believe this year I have learned and gained new wisdom.

 

Rob Patz

Rob Patz

I’m going close this year’s Publishers Point by challenging you to pray not only for our magazine, but for your church, your neighbors, and your family. I pray that this year you take time to specifically pray for each. I believe that 2018 is going to be full of new blessings.

 

God has amazing things for you and for me. It’s time to stop looking at the negative. I’m going to preach this throughout 2018 … stop dwelling on the bad things and start praising God for the good things.

 

As I close this, I want to wish you all the best during the holidays, from my family to yours. I love you all.

Troy Burns Family wows audiences with their 26 city “Bringing Good News” Christmas Tour

Troy Burns Family wows audiences with their 26 city “Bringing Good News” Christmas Tour

Troy Burns Family wows audiences with their 26 city “Bringing Good News” Christmas Tour

Last night in Mount Juliet, TN, the Troy Burns Family were on day 8 of their 26 city “Bringing Good News” Christmas tour. Before the first song was sung, the Christmas spirit was already filling the room with the lights and decor on the stage.

The show began with pianist, Jacob Klutz, performing a medley of Christmas favorites. Troy Burns, his wife, Tammy, and Shane Mathis then took the stage. Their first song was “Good News” which Burns has sang many times before as a 30-year member of The Inspirations who recorded the song in the 80’s.

Troy Burns Family wows audiences with their 26 city “Bringing Good News” Christmas TourThis event was very intimate and more than just an ordinary concert. Each part of the program brought specific emotion that everyone attending could relate to.

Troy Burns Family wows audiences with their 26 city “Bringing Good News” Christmas TourThe audience enjoyed hearing Christmas favorites like “Beautiful Star Of Bethlehem” and “Away In A Manger” as they were performed in tight family harmony. The stage lighting was just enough to secure the mood of the night while subtle enough to where it wasn’t a distraction. You should have seen the eyes light up all over the auditorium when snow began falling from the snow machines high above the set.

Troy Burns Family wows audiences with their 26 city “Bringing Good News” Christmas TourDuring a beautifully detailed piano instrumental of “Oh Holy Night”, the vocalists left the stage and then returned with a festive wardrobe change. In addition to the traditional Christmas songs found in church hymnals, the Troy Burns Family also sang feel-good classics like “Winter Wonderland”, “Jingle Bell Rock” and “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”. This was followed by a touching song about those we love who are spending Christmas “With The Son Of God”.

It sounded like a well-rehearsed mass choir when the audience was asked to participate and sing along to Christmas carols like “Joy To The World”. One of our favorite moments was when they performed a beautiful version of “Noel” with full multi-media playing on the big screen in the background. Vocalist, Shane Mathis, who is also an ordained minister, offered a beautiful reading and gave a heartfelt testimony. It was a night designed for all ages to promote Christ in Christmas that genuinely felt like a family gathering. And talk about “Bringing Good News”, 8 people have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior so far on this tour.

To see if the “Bringing Good News” Christmas Tour is coming to a city near you, visit their website.

Texas Country Music Association Announces
2018 TCMA Songwriter Contest Now Open for Entries

CARTHAGE, TX — The Texas Country Music Association, Inc. announced that its annual TCMA Songwriter Contest and Awards are open for song submissions as of December 1, 2017 in both Country and Christian Country formats.

Entered songs must be original works and are judged on creativity, lyrics, melody, arrangement, originality and overall technique. Songs are reviewed in the order they are submitted so entering early is suggested. To review the rules and enter, go to www.texascountrymusic.org and choose the Songwriter contest link. Up to 5 songs may be submitted per entry form.

According to Texas Country Music Association President, Linda Wilson, the 2017 contest was a huge success. “For the 2017 TCMA Songwriter Contest we had several hundred songs submitted for both categories. It was certainly difficult to get those down to the top 10 in each format! There are so many awesome songwriters, artists and musicians who are from or who perform in Texas and it’s our job as a supporting organization to find them and work on their behalf to help get them exposure. The songwriters along with their music have gained tremendous attention, and that’s why it’s such a hit!”

The top 10 finalists of the contest will be named and recognized at the 2018 Texas Country Music Awards in the fall of 2018. There will be five Honorable Mentions, First, Second, Third and Fourth Place Runners Up, and a Final Winner that will hold the title 2018 TCMA Country Songwriter of the Year and 2018 TCMA Christian Country Songwriter of the year, respectively. The winners will have the opportunity to share the stage with top artists to perform their songs at the 2018 Texas Country Music Awards as well as other TCMA Sponsored events throughout the year.

The 2017 TCMA Country Songwriter of the Year is Justin Todd Herod for his original tune, “Songs I Wish I’d Wrote”. Kelly Kenning and Tony Ramey took home the 2017 TCMA Christian Country Songwriter of the Year in the Christian Country category for “God’s Got This”. Both winners were welcomed with standing ovations at the 2017 Texas Country Music Awards which took place on September 28 in Carthage, TX. Plans for the 2018 Texas Country Music Awards are currently underway along with many other TCMA projects for 2018 such as the Texas Country Music Showdown, a TCMA Songwriter Conference and more.
