Beyond The Song: Eagle's Wings sing ‘When I Close My Eyes"

Eagle’s Wings

For this edition of Beyond the Song, Jantina de Haan-Baksteen reached out to Eagle’s Wings to talk about their single, “When I Close My Eyes.”  Darryle Wilson of Eagle’s Wings agreed to join her for this interview.

1. Please introduce yourselves to the readers of SGNScoops for those who have never heard about you before.

Eagle’s Wings consists mostly of family members. Debbi and I (Darryle) have been married 46 years (as of June 15.) I sing and play the bass.  Matthew Wilson (our son) sings and plays the guitar, mandolin, and dobro. Kevin Chambers sings and plays guitar, mandolin, and bass. Jacob Patterson plays the banjo, mandolin, and bass. 

Beyond The Song: Eagle's Wings sing ‘When I Close My Eyes" 2. I believe you had a recent No. 1 song on the charts, was that ‘He Hung the Moon’?

Actually “If He Hung the Moon” only went to No. 2, I think. We did have a No. 1 with “King Jesus” back in November, 2018. 

 

3. You have a rich musical background, can you share something about that?

Debbi and I sang together in a country band before getting married. We got married in 1973, got in church in 1979. I rededicated my life to the Lord, Debbi got saved, then her sister, mom, and dad got saved. They had only done country music, but had a desire to sing in church. Her dad, Floyd “Bill” Busby, wrote three songs, one of which will be on our newest project. 

Beyond The Song: Eagle's Wings sing ‘When I Close My Eyes" 3. Darryle is the writer of this beautiful new song, “When I Close My Eyes.” For those who believe the message, we hardly need an explanaition. But to those who haven’t commited their lives to Jesus, it’s a serious message. Can you tell us what the song says?

The song actually reaffirms the fact that we all have an appointment with death, but for the Christian, it’s only going to get better when we close our eyes here. “Pain is a stranger, there’ll be no danger, it’s glory forevermore.” Because God holds the appointment book, we just need to be ready. 

 

4. Do you write most of the songs yourselves?

In fact, our current project will be nothing but originals. However we like throwing a little (blue) grass seed on a Southern gospel song, just to see if we can get the grass to grow.

Beyond The Song: Eagle's Wings sing ‘When I Close My Eyes" 5. Is there anything more you’d like the readers to know?

In July, 2012, because of scoliosis, I went into complete respiratory failure and was placed on a ventilator. The doctor had told Debbi and Matthew that I would never preach or sing again and, that if I lived, I would probably be bedridden and on a respirator for the rest of my life. They were not given much hope. But, after a week, on my 65th birthday, I was off the ventilator and breathing on my own. God raised me up, and after three weeks in the nursing home for rehab, I went home. I returned to my pulpit on September 2, 2012, where I’ve been ever since. 

6. What is ahead for Eagle’s Wings in the near future?

As far as the future – we have no clue. We just leave that up to God. We would like to add another musician, if God allows. We just pray for open doors and the good sense to walk through them when He shows us one. 

7. What is the road routine of each member of the group?

Our families travel with us. Matthew’s wife, Jennifer runs our product table. They have two daughters, Anna and Emma. 

Kevin’s wife, Rhonda, runs our sound. They have one son named Jonathan. 

We don’t have a bus. We travel in four separate vehicles. We just make sure everyone has the correct address and hope we all show up at the right time and place. 

8. Where can readers find you on the internet?

Each member has an individual Facebook page, except me. The group also has a page.

 

 

 

For a complete schedule, go to eagleswingsband.com

Thank you so much, Darryle, for your time and for allowing us a sneak peak into what happens with Eagle’s Wings.

The SGNScoops’ team wish you God’s blessing and safe travels for all the miles ahead.

Beyond the Song: River’s Edge sing “I am Redeemed”

Written by Staff on July 16, 2019 – 5:12 pm -

Beyond the Song: River's Edge sing "I am Redeemed"Jantina de Haan Baksteen interviewed River’s Edge for this Beyond the Song article about “I Am Redeemed.”

1. Please introduce us to River’s Edge.

River’s Edge is a trio singing Christian music based out of North Wilkesboro, N.C.

John Wishon serves as lead vocalist for River’s Edge as well as handling  the emcee work for the group. John sang with his parents for 32 years in their family group, The Wishons.

John owns a Christian radio station in Wilkesboro, N.C.a is one of the most sought after evangelists and revival preachers on the east coast.

John Wishon’s wife, Rebecca, has been singing gospel music for virtually her whole life. The daughter of a pastor, she began singing at a very young age. In the late 1990’s, she performed for several years in the group Rejoice! Night after night, Rebecca amazes audiences with her powerful, from the heart, vocal abilities. Rebecca is a physical education teacher at Mountain View Elementary School in Hays, N.C. 

Rebecca and John have two beautiful children, Miles and Riley.

Tenor, John Blackburn, is a seasoned veteran of the Gospel stage. John has performed with different local artists; New Direction, and most recently with Fortify Trio. Audiences love John for not only his vocal ability but also for his magnetic and energetic personality. John has worked along side of his dad for 13 years, owning a painting company. He and his wife Amber live only 10 minutes from John and Rebecca in Wilkes County, N.C.

2. What’s the story about your ministry’s name.

How River’s Edge got it’s name: When the group was formed in 2014, original members John, Rebecca and Sheri were tossing around names and could never come to a conclusion. After days of throwing around ideas Rebecca said, “Remember the name River’s Edge that you guys mentioned?” John W. replied, “We never said River’s Edge…but hey, I like it.”

Beyond the Song: River's Edge sing "I am Redeemed"3. Are you nationally traveling a lot?

Well,there is always room to grow. We will go wherever the Lord leads us, but recently our schedule has included North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Georgia. Also back in February, we were blessed with the privilege of being a part of the Celebration at Sea Cruise with other various artists. We would lovr for you to go with us next year.

4. What is the background of the song, “I am Redeemed?”

Written and released in 2012, “I am Redeemed,” was originally written and performed by Mike Weaver. Or, “Big Daddy Weave” as his fans know him. For River’s Edge, the song will be on an upcoming unnamed project.

5. What does the song mean to River’s Edge?

The word, “Redeemed,” alone, is the action of being saved from sin. In other words, eternity hinges on that one word. For the believer, the scripture tells us not to rejoice that the spirits are subject unto us, but to rather rejoice because our names are written in heaven. So whether you have much, or little, you can rejoice because of redemption.

Beyond the Song: River's Edge sing "I am Redeemed"6. What is your message to the audience?

Our message to the audience is rather simple…we want to make sure that our audiences clearly understand the Gospel; the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. We also want believers to be encouraged, even if they have failed, or have all kinds of trouble going on in their life, that God’s love for them has not changed.

7. Please tell us a little more about River’s Edge.

We are all avid N.C. Tarheel basketball fans. We love to talk smack with our friends at concerts who still are Duke or Kentucky fans.

You can find us on most of the major social media platforms. Facebook.com/RiversEdgeGospel

Instagram: Rivers_Edge_Gospel

We are new to Youtube. Just search Rivers Edge Gospel.

 

Enjoy “I Am Redeemed” by River’s Edge.

 

Thanks to River’s Edge for answering all of our questions as we went Beyond the Song.

Beyond the Song: The Bibletones sing “That’s Why His Grace is Amazing”

Written by Staff on July 1, 2019 – 2:58 pm -

Bibletones

BibletonesFor this edition of the Beyond the Song article,  Jantina de-Haan Baksteen reached out to The Bibletones to talk about their radio release entitled, “That’s Why His Grace is Amazing.”

The current lineup of this male quartet is: Glen Floyd – bass, Jack Armstrong – baritone, Jamie May – lead, Danny Jackson – tenor, Andrew Ishee – piano, Ken Keyes – bass guitar.

Jantina: I interviewed Jack Armstrong and asked him these questions:

1. Can you introduce the group?

Jack: Bibletones are Mississippi’s oldest quartet, founded in 1957, in  Lumberton, Miss., by Ward and Irene Hurt. We have been blessed to continue our ministry for 62 years now.

2. The Bibletones have a song on radio, “That’s Why His Grace is Amazing to Me.” Can you tell the readers of SGNScoops more about this song? Who is the writer?

Jack: “That’s Why His Grace is Amazing,” was written by a lady from Gautier, Miss., named Dianne McVey.

Bibletones3. What does the message mean to you personally?

4. What is the message you want to share to the crowd?

Jack: The message of the song is timeless. Just ask yourself this question: Where would you be without the amazing grace of our God? Thankfully, we will never have to find out the answer to that question because He is always with us and will never forsake us.

Beyond the Song: the Kingsmen give a “Victory Shout”

Written by Staff on June 21, 2019 – 1:30 pm -

The Kingsmen’s Victory Shout shares encouragement for the journey to Heaven

The Kingsmen’s Victory Shout shares encouragement for the journey to Heaven

Jantina de Haan Baksteen goes Beyond the Song to talk to the Kingsmen about their latest hit, “Victory Shout.’

I reached out to the Kingsmen and got in contact with Chris Jenkins. He responded immediately and was willing to answer these few questions about the Kingsmen and the song “Victory Shout” that’s currently on radio.

1. Please tell us about the Kingsmen lineup as there have been some changes lately.

Chris Jenkins

Chris Jenkins:The Kingsmen have been blessed, for 63 years, to have some of the most talented and dynamic vocalists pass through the ranks of the group. Chris Bryant and Alan Kendall are no exception.

Chris brings a powerhouse and smooth lead vocal to that Kingsmen sound. He is from Mississippi originally and now makes his home in East Tennessee.

Alan has been here since August of 2018 following the retirement of Randy Crawford. Alan makes his home in Hiawassee, Georgia, with his wife and two daughters. Alan’s booming baritone voice and high energy is reminiscent of former members such as Squire Parsons, Wayne Maynard, and Parker Jonathan. Alan is being received well as he gives his take on Kingsmen No  1 songs such as “Battle Cry”, “The Next Cloud”, and recent radio hit, “Don’t Underestimate God’s Grace”.

2. Please share some history of the Kingsmen. You have celebrated over 60 years already!

Chris: The Kingsmen started in the mid-50’s in Asheville, N.C. Through the 70’s and 80’s, they made their mark on Christian music with award winning albums such as “Big and Live”, “Chattanooga Live” and “Live Naturally”, garnering four Dove Awards, Grammy nominations, numerous Singing News Fan Awards, and an induction into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 2000. The Kingsmen have performed on the south lawn of the White House and at the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville, TN.

The Kingsmen's "Victory Shout" is a powerful anthem

The Kingsmen

3. “Victory Shout” is on the “Victory Shout!” album. Tell us about this song. Why was it picked for this album?

Chris: “Victory Shout” was one of the last songs we picked for the new album. Written by Kenna Turner West and Jason Cox, who have written many recent hits in Christian music, we fell in love with it’s powerful message and worshipful chorus. When Kenna had the idea, it was 22 years ago, and began with the Bible story of Miriam waiting and praising God in the midst of oppression by Pharaoh, before Moses led the children of Israel across the Red Sea.

4 From the first note it gets your attention. What makes this song so special?

Chris: Being from a choral background, I immediately felt like it needed a big choir in the background and we had Wesley Pritchard and friends help us lay down a choir arrangement and backing vocals. It’s special to us because The Kingsmen have never really recorded a worship anthem until now and it’s being received so well.

5. You are the lead on this song and doing an amazing job! What is the message you want to share with the audience?

Chris: It’s a message of hope and encouragement. If you’re waiting on an answer from God, sometimes he doesn’t always send the answer in our time. God’s will is perfect and his ways are much higher than ours. The Bible says, “He inhabits the praises of his people,” so we should give God praise in the midst of our storm while we’re waiting for Him to send the miracle our way.

6. Is there something more you ‘d like to share with the SGNScoops readers?

Chris:”Victory Shout” became available worldwide and on all your favorite digital music platforms on June 7. You may get your copy by visiting our website at www.kingsmenquartet.com. You may also visit us on Facebook and Twitter. Visit our website to see where you can catch the Kingsmen in a city near you.

Thanks Chris Jenkins for taking us Beyond The Song with the KIngsmen.

The entire SGNScoops team wish you many more years spreading the Gospel and safe travels on the many miles you make.

Beyond the Song: The Browns become “Brave”

Written by Staff on June 18, 2019 – 3:11 pm -

The Browns

The Browns

 

For this edition of Beyond The Song, Jantina de Haan-Baksteen talked to Michaela Brown of The Browns about their single “Brave.”

The Browns are a singing family who are no strangers to Southern gospel. Mother Shelly Brown is joined by her daughter Michaela and sons Adam and Andrew. They are incredible violin artists and reside in Iowa, where they are farmers and also own a theatre in their hometown.

1. Who wrote the incredible message of “Brave?”

“Brave” was penned by gifted songwriters Scott Inman and Lee Black.

2. What album is this song on?

It will be on an upcoming album that is in the works, but will probably come out in 2020.

3. What is the message you want to share with your audience?

I think this song will bring a powerful message for young and old. Today we are living in a day and age where we need strength to stand up for the truth, for the message of the Gospel, and our God gives us that strength when we ask.

The Browns record with Stowtown Records.

As the song was cowritten by Scott Inman, Jantina contacted him to discover why he wrote this song with Lee Black.

Scott shared, ”I was thinking about this world and how times are changing. Some things are positive changes and some are negatve changes that causing some to question their faith and compromise their beliefs and convctions. I wanted to write a song that reminds that we are more than conquerors through Christ and we should have our full armour on and be brave in these times when our beliefs are being questioned and persecuted. We need to be strong in the faith and ready.”

Scott continued, “I took this idea to Lee Black and we wrote what I feel is a great and timely song, that the Browns perform incredibly well”.

Thanks to Micheala Brown and Scott Inman for providing this information and assisting us to go Beyond the Song.

Beyond the Song: Riley Harrison Clark sings, “Glory to Glory”

Written by Staff on June 7, 2019 – 6:15 am -

Riley Harrison Clark. Beyond the Song. Glory to Glory

Riley Harrison Clark. Beyond the Song. Glory to Glory

Jantina de Haan Baksteen reached out to Riley Harrison Clark to go Beyond the Song into his new release, “Glory to Glory,” from his “Welcome to Me” album. We all know Riley from Tribute Quartet where he sang the lead. Members include Gary Casto, Josh Singletary, and Anthony Davis. Filling in the tenor part is Gus Gaches.

Riley Harrison Clark. Beyond the Song. Glory to GloryYou started your solo career in 2018 and introduced “Glory to Glory” to radio from your first solo album. Who wrote this song and why is it on this project?

Joel Lindsey, Jeff Bumgardner, and I wrote, “Glory To Glory.” I have always been inspired by Larnell Harris and his music, so when it came time to record an album of my own, I know I wanted to write a song that would stylistically be something like what he would record.

What made you pick this song as your first song to radio?

“Glory To Glory” is the opening for every one of my solo concerts. It is the opening of the album, so we simply felt it fitting to make it the first single off the project.

What does the message of the song mean to you?

Along with wanting to record something that felt inspired by the styles of Larnell, I also wanted to take a moment on the project to simply glorify God for all He is and all He has done. I believe we were able to capture both of these things.

Riley Harrison Clark. Beyond the Song. Glory to Glory

Riley Harrison Clark with Tribute Quartet

What is the message you want to share with your audience?

To answer this question as simple as possible I would say the most important thing I want to share is that there is hope. For whatever you may be going through and whatever may come your way there is always hope. You are not alone and never will be.

Can you tell what lies ahead for your solo ministry in the near future?

As an artist I have goals. Goals for my music, my voice, my future. However, I am always careful to not put a goal on my ministry other than to be where God has for me at every moment. I never want to put a cap on, for lack of better terms, my ministry. I feel the moment I start trying to control the future of my ministry is the moment it will start to stray from the greater things God has ahead.

I know you traveled a lot to foreign countries with Tribute Quartet. Where did you go?

Yes. While with the guys (Tribute) we were fortunate to travel all across the world; Northern Ireland, Scotland, Canada, Mexico, and most recently Tanzania, Africa where we were able to be involved with an organization we all feel privileged to support, Kids4School.

Riley Harrison Clark of Tribute

Riley Harrison Clark

Is it on your wish list to travel out of the country as a solo artist?

I would love to continue to travel the world. It is my passion to share my music and God’s message to not only my country but others as well.

Is there something more you’d like to share?

Lastly, I want everyone to know that it is my heart’s desire to reach the lost and broken as well as to encourage others that are simply in need of being uplifted. I believe now is as good a time as any to pour all we have into showing the love, grace, mercy, and hope of Jesus out for all to see. I am honored to do this by sharing the ministry of Riley Harrison Clark with all those that will listen, whether it is down the street or all around the world.

Thanks so much for your time. As the SGNScoops team, we wish you God’s blessing for your ministry and family!

Beyond the Song: Fields of Grace sing “Dining with the King”

Written by Staff on May 19, 2019 – 9:09 am -

 

Fields of Grace

Fields of Grace

Jantina de Haan takes us Beyond the Song once again, to introduce us to Fields of Grace, the artists who sing “Dining with the King.”

Jantina tells us: “The song ‘Dining With The King’ caught my attention and I wanted to know more about that beautiful song! I asked them several questions to know more about that song and their group called Fields of Grace.”

Tell us about your group, Fields of Grace.

“Fields of Grace began singing gospel music together in 2010 at their home church, Maple Ridge Baptist, located in Candler, North Carolina. Members include Elise Ingle, with husband and wife, Nathaniel and Leslie Smith. They are dear friends who enjoy spending hours together in preparation and travel. They provide an inspirational service presenting the gospel message in song. Their music includes smooth Southern gospel music, Bluegrass gospel music, and Traditional Christian music, all with the goal of uplifting their savior and encouraging His church.” For more on this group, visit their website HERE.

Tell a little about that song “Dining With the King.”

“Mephibosheth’s story is the story for all who have received the marvelous gift of salvation. Mercy, hope, grace and the blessings of going from ‘poverty to majesty’ is the message of ‘Dining with the King.’ Christ’s love is unconditional as the words in the song proclaim: ‘no one is ever turned away, so come just as you are…'”

Fields of Grace Who wrote the song?

“The Issacs – Rebecca Isaacs Bowman (R.I. Bowman Music (BMI) & Sonya Isaacs Yeary (June Elephant Music/ Warner Chappell Music (BMI) & Jimmy Yeary (EMI Blackwood/Great Day at THiS Music/ Beattyville Music (BMI). 1/31/2015”

What does the song mean to you personally?

“We have always loved the song from the first time we started singing it. The message is so beautiful and speaks of the love of our King that died for us so we would no longer be begging for the things of this world but ‘Dine with the King’ and experience His blessings. We spend our lives searching for fulfillment and always coming up empty until we meet Jesus. He is all we need and so much more than we deserve.
We were all raised in the church. Nathaniel and Leslie were saved at a young age and Elise later as a young woman. Although we have always known who He was; each of us has sweet testimonies of how the King extended His mercy to us. He did not have to save us; He could have passed us by. We very much deserved wrath and judgment but God gave us a permanent seat at His table instead. Praise God!”

Fields of Grace

Fields of Grace – Undone CD

What is the message you want to share with the listeners in the audience?

“We believe Jesus came back from the grave with His scars on display to show the world the depth and power of His love. This song gives us and our listeners courage to keep sharing their own story of how they met Jesus and just how broken we all were and how radical the resurrecting and transforming power of Jesus Christ is. We pray our listeners hear the same call and feel the same urge to be open and brave in sharing the miracle of just how far from grace we all were and the joy of now having a continual audience with the King!”

Why is it on this particular album?

“From the moment we first heard and started singing ‘Dining with the King’ in worship services we were excited about the opportunity to record it. God has always been faithful to bless the message every time we sing it and we are grateful for His touch. We all agreed that it would be first on our new project titled ‘Undone.’ ‘Undone’ came from the line in our second song on the project, ‘I Got Saved:’ ‘I’m undone by the mercy of Jesus, I’m undone by the goodness of the Lord.’ ‘Dining with the King’ was the obvious choice for the first song on such an important project for our ministry.”

Thanks, Fields of Grace, for sharing your story with SGNScoops! May you continue to spread the Gospel in the land.

“Dining with the King” is the number one song on New Journey Radio for the month of May 2019.

Let the message of this song and tender vocals of Fields of Grace bless you today.

Thanks to Jantina de Haan for taking us Beyond the Song with Fields of Grace.

Beyond the Song: Day Three sing “I Fail, But I’m Not A Failure”

Written by Staff on May 11, 2019 – 5:45 pm -

Day Three

Day Three

Jantina de Haan brings us another Beyond the Song look at a tune by Day Three, entitled, “I Fail, But I’m Not A Failure,” written by Rodney Griffin and Joseph Habadank. This song can be found on their recording, “Just Sing.”

Please talk to us about “I Fail, But I’m Not a Failure.” Why did you include this in your latest recording?

This is one of our most requested songs. We chose this because we could each identify with the lyrics. I think we have all come to a place in life where we feel like we’ve failed the Lord. This song is a constant reminder that God is always near, and He still saves, He still picks us up when we are down. He still forgives and most importantly, He forgets. No matter what you’re going through today, you’re not a failure in God’s eyes.

Day Three is from Mobile, Alabama, and is made up of Scott Washam, Amy Dunnam, and Bo Sullivan. They have been singing since 2014 and have made a mark in gospel music for their tight harmony and warm presentation.

We hope you enjoy this song as performed by Day Three. Producer Jonathan Goodwin, Redemption World Records.
Released on June 4, 2017.
