Rick Shelton Named VP of Daywind Music Publishing

Written by SGN Scoops on March 9, 2012 – 1:24 pm -

Hendersonville, TN (March 9, 2012) – With 40 #1 songs, 2 BMI Christian Publisher of the Year nods and 10 GMA Dove Awards, including 2011 Song of the Year winner, “Sometimes I Cry,” Daywind Music Publishing has established a strong foothold in Christian music publishing.  In recognition of his leadership towards this end, Rick Shelton has been named Vice President.

Since joining Daywind in 2004, Shelton has signed hit songwriters and forged a strategic partnership with Lifeway Worship enabling Daywind to start a choral print division.  The most recent offering, “Love Won,” by Kenna Turner-West is up for a GMA Dove Award this year for Best Musical.

“Rick Shelton is a great leader.  He is completely focused on finding ways to create opportunities for Daywind’s songwriters.  We are so pleased to have him at the helm of our publishing division,” stated Ed Leonard, president of Daywind Music Group.

Shelton is overseeing Daywind’s expansion into other markets, recently hiring Stephen Duncan as Creative Director.   Duncan is the first graduate of the Belmont University songwriting program and has great relationships across all genres of Christian music.  His strong music background as a concert pianist will prove a plus as Daywind moves into praise and worship, adult contemporary and Christian hit radio formats through new writer signings and collaborations with the talented staff of songwriters at Daywind.    “Stephen Duncan was highly recommended for this role by Steve Rice at Centricity and Mike Murray at Integrity, two men I highly respect in this industry, and I am so excited to see what we will accomplish together,“ said Shelton.

Daywind’s family of songwriters includes Caleb Collins, Marty Funderburk, Ronny Hinson, Scott Inman, Kyla Rowland, John Darin Rowsey, Jeff Steele, Ben Storie, Kenna West, Dianne Wilkinson, Daryl Williams and Gina Vera.

WORLD-FAMOUS BLUEBIRD CAFÉ TO FEATURE DAYWIND MUSIC SONGWRITERS

Written by Rhonda on November 5, 2010 – 7:22 pm -

 Hendersonville, TN (November 5, 2010) – For Southern Gospel fans, the message found in the lyric of the song is just as important as the voice singing it.  However, it is not often that the fans are given a chance to hear from the writers themselves.  But next Tuesday night, November 9, 2010, beginning at 6:00 PM, fans are invited to join some of Daywind Music’s most recognized songwriters at the Bluebird Café in downtown Nashville for a night of sharing through song. 
 Known for displaying talented songwriters in an intimate setting, the world-renowned Bluebird Café will host a list of award-winning Daywind writers, including Ronny Hinson (“The Lighthouse”), Marcia Henry (“I’ll Pray For You”), Marty Funderburk (“I Believe God”), Kyla Rowland (“Did I Mention”), Ben Storie (“God Is Still In America”), Daryl Williams (“Singing With The Saints”), and Kenna West (“We’re Not Gonna Bow”).  Having writers of this caliber together on the same night will be a thrill for music lovers and songwriters alike.
  “Daywind is proud to present its exclusive songwriting staff for a special evening of Gospel music at the world-famous Bluebird Café,” offered Rick Shelton, Director of Publishing for Daywind Music.  “Each writer will perform one of his or her chart-topping hits, as well as brand new songs never before presented to the public.  Gospel music speaks to one’s soul, and these are the writers who craft the speech.”
 To make reservations to attend this event, visit www.bluebirdcafe.com/reservations.
In addition to the writers mentioned, Daywind Music Publishing also represents writers such as Sheri LaFontaine, Jeff Steele, and Dianne Wilkinson.
