11th Hour Welcomes Logan Smith

11th Hour Welcomes Logan Smith

We are excited to announce the third member of 11th Hour!!! He is no stranger to gospel music. Let’s show some love for LOGAN SMITH.

Logan, a pastor’s son from Covington, Georgia, has had a full-time ministry for 11 years. He got his start in music after listening to Vestal Goodman in Gaither Homecoming Videos and finding inspiration to sing. While his music preserves a rich and traditional sound, the 21-year-old has been able to bring a fresh feel to his original, chart-topping songs. Logan has released 7 solo albums, performed with the Gaither Homecoming Tour, and was a nominee in the 2017 Singing News Fan Awards Top 10 Young Artist and Top 5 New Artist categories. He’s toured all across America, Canada, and has headlined two Norwegian tours.

Logan states, “I’m so excited for this new season in my life and ministry. God has a perfect plan for all of us and I’m glad he’s put my with these talented ladies. We’ve only been on the road together a few weeks and it’s been incredible to watch what God is already doing. I’m grateful to have this opportunity. The best is yet to come. I look forward to seeing you all somewhere on the road, soon!”

11th Hour states, “We look forward to this new season with Logan. He brings a fresh new sound along with energy that’s undeniable and contagious.”

Gerald Wolfe

As you know, Wacky Wednesday features questions that you might not find in regular artist interviews and answers that you might not see printed anywhere else…And do you know the word for the fear of taste? Keep reading!

 

Today we hear responses from Josh Jordan of the Jordan Family Band, Gerald Wolfe of Greater Vision,

Wendy Hayes of the Mylon Hayes family, Corey Pearson of the Diplomats, Bob Sellers, Pat Barker of the Guardians, Clayton Inman of Triumphant, Josh Townsend of Legacy Five, and

Jaquita Lindsey of 11th Hour.

 

This week’s questions are: what is your favorite fruit and what was the first job you held? See if you can tell which answer is which!

We will let the men go first again:

Josh Jordan: Oranges and pouring concrete

Gerald Wolfe: Demonstrating Baldwin organs and pianos. I was in high school and strawberries

Jordan Family Band

Jordan Family Band

Corey Pearson: Cutting grass and watermelon and strawberries

Bob Sellers: Tough one. I love all fruit! I’d have to say watermelon and Housel hardware store in Gordo Alabama. I was 15.

Josh Townsend: Oranges and the pianist for the Old Paths

Pat Barker: Choir director and Of The Looms…

Clayton Inman: Banana and day camp counselor

 

Let’s hear from the ladies…

Jaquita Lindsey: Bananas and Tasty Freeze

Wendy Hayes: Roses department store and strawberries, watermelon, oranges

Clayton Inman

Were these answers what you expected? We hope you enjoyed this Q&A and perhaps it shed a little more light on your favorite artists. And did you know that fear of taste is “geumaphobia“? The Bible says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” He’s better even than bananas! “Taste” here means “experience” or “enjoy” or to take into your heart and let Him give you the nutrients your soul needs. He is good!!

11th Hour New Album What a Moment

11th Hour

Arden, NC. (March 27, 2018) – Chart-topping trio 11th Hour announces the departure of Grant Gibson. Grant will be moving to Karen Peck and New River to fill the vacated

position of Ricky Braddy.

Amber Eppinette of 11th Hour states: “Of course, it’s always hard to see someone go, especially when they have been here for five years. Grant became not only a friend but a brother to us. I along with Jaquita are thankful for the years shared with him. We bless him in this new season and journey.”

Grant Gibson adds: “It’s been an honor the past five years to be a part of 11th Hour. I’ve seen countless people come to Christ, watched the group rise to places it had never been, and made so many new friends. The Eppinette family have become an extended family, and I’m so grateful for the opportunities they’ve given me. Amber and Jaquita will always be sisters to me, and this transition won’t change that. Life is full of seasons, and this season of my life is coming to an end. I ask that you continue to pray for 11th Hour and myself as we continue to seek God’s will.”

11th Hour will be auditioning to fill the lead vocal position starting immediately. Interested vocalists should send resume’s to

Logan Smith

Logan Smith

11thhourgg@gmail.com to set up a time to audition. In the meantime, Logan Smith who is not a stranger to the Gospel music scene will be temporarily filling the dates with 11th Hour.

11th Hour experiences memorable first trip to Canada

Written by Staff on August 31, 2017 – 2:25 pm -

11th Hour

11th Hour

11th Hour member, Jaquita Lindsey, talks about the group’s first visit north of the border.

11th Hour had the privilege in July of this year of being part of Canada’s Gospel Music Celebration, held annually in Red Deer, Alta. This event is comparable to our National Quartet Convention that is held in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Many great groups were in attendance for this year’s event, such as the Booth Brothers, Collingsworth family, Mark Trammell Quartet, Greater Vision, Triumphant Quartet and Legacy Five. We also had the opportunity to meet and hear a few Canadian groups.

11th Hour at Red Deer, Alberta

Traveling to Canada was a first for Grant (Gibson), Amber (Eppinette) and I. We call Grant our world traveler, having visited about every state and several countries. But Red Deer was a first for us all. The people greeted us warmly and made us feel so special. Many friends came to our product table and wanted to put “faces to the voices they had been hearing on the radio”.

Gerald Wolfe, of Greater Vision, emceed the nightly concerts. He also held one of his Hymn Sings on Friday afternoon. Second Half Quartet sang a few songs to open up the sing. Stan Whitmire graced us with his phenomenal piano skills for the sing-a-long. 11th Hour was asked to sing “Love of God,” which Amber sang better than I had ever heard her. She laughed that it was because Stan was playing for her.
The only fun we had time for was Saturday morning when we spent a little time in downtown Calgary. Mark Trammell Quartet was in charge of Chapel that morning. Since we skipped it to “go have fun”, his guys turned our backdrop upside down and rearranged our product table. We all had a good laugh about it.

Calgary, Alberta

We hope to get invited back in the future to Canada’s Gospel Music Celebration. That trip was memorable for all three of us.

About 11th Hour

(http://11thhourgg.com/bio/, August 31, 2017)…In 2012, 11th Hour signed a recording contract with Crossroads Music Group. “The doors of opportunity that a recording contract opened up were incredible. We had a support that would help

us reach more and more people for the Kingdom,” says Amber. And with that support, 11th Hour has done just that. They’ve had multiple Top 10 hits and been nominated for numerous awards in Southern Gospel music such as Trio of the Year and Album of the Year, while Amber was nominated for Soprano of the Year. In 2014, 11th Hour took home the Sunrise Award at the SGN Scoops Diamond Awards. “It has been such an honor receiving support from people you respect and admire,” shares Amber. “God has so much more in store for us as we travel and bring glory to His name.”There’s so much more work to be done as these three continue to step out in faith. Amber, Grant, and Jaquita, are ready to go wherever the Lord opens doors, singing and proclaiming the good news of Jesus… Read more here.

Arden, NC. (December 5, 2016) – Sonlite Records recording artist 11th Hour has really been on a roll in 2016! They had their first-ever #1 song with “Jesus Is in The House” in January 2016, which was quickly followed by a second #1 in June titled “Mountain Moving Faith.” The talented trio didn’t stop there, though. November 2016 saw 11th Hour blessed with a third-in-a-row #1, the up-tempo call-to-service “Can You Burn!” While returning to Nashville TN from a recent tour, Amber, Jaquita, and Grant stopped by the offices of Crossroads Entertainment & Marketing in Arden, NC to celebrate their latest chart-topper; also to enjoy some time talking about their new DVD/CD releasing January 2017 Burnin’ It Up LIVE! The coming year is certainly shaping up to be another busy one for the popular and highly-regarded trio!

11th Hour and Crossroads Entertainment extends our deep appreciation to the esteemed radio friends whose dedication and support take the music and message across the world.
