Jantina de Haan goes Beyond the Song once again to talk to Don Stiles, Gospel singer/songwriter/musician, about his release, “Three Story House,” found on his latest CD, Songwriter.

What does this song mean to you? Why did you write these deeply personal lyrics?

Don Stiles tells us: “I was meditating on God’s goodness and awesomeness one morning. I began to think of all the material things people seemed to want to obtain such as houses and lands, etc. While I, myself, had always dreamed of one day owning and driving a Mercedes Benz sports car I quickly remembered what was most important in my life. ‘What I Need’ was the original working title of the song as I wanted to put things in perspective, at least for me. It is a very personal prayer to the Lord. What I need, Lord is one touch from You…What I need, Lord is to hear Your voice…What I need, Lord is to see Your smile…”

Why did you entitle it “Three Story House”?

“‘Three Story House’ became the song’s title because I thought folks would remember it better and as they listened to the message, it would resonate with them,” says Stiles. “I am so honored and thrilled that it is doing so well. May it help put things in perspective for all who listen to it is

Beyond the Song: “Cain’s Blood” by Steel City Revival

Written by Staff on May 2, 2019 – 6:00 am -

Steel City Revival

Steel City RevivalJantina de Haan again goes Beyond the Song to talk to Steel City Revival about their single, “Cain’s Blood.” As per their Facebook page, Steel City Revival is an Alabama based, all male Southern gospel quartet. Members include BT Thomas, Greg Carter, Dustin Bearden, and Keith Wix. You can also find them on the web HERE.

Tell us the story behind the lyrics of “Cain’s Blood.”

“‘Cain’s Blood’ paints a picture of the real-life struggle of good and evil in someone’s life. It starts with the story of a good parent and an evil parent. The picture it presents of a good mother vs. a bad father is, sadly, a real-life problem that plays out in the lives of some children every day.

“The second verse takes the song in the direction of the person looking at themselves internally. It deals with the battle that we all fight within ourselves. We all have an internal struggle and secrets that need to be laid out before God for forgiveness.

“The bridge and the end of the song provide the ultimate answer for all conflict with evil. Whether that conflict is within yourself, or externally, the only answer is to, as the song says, ‘hit your knees and pray.’ The reason the song means what it does is that it points to the fact that to overcome evil, one must pray.”

Why did you put it on your latest album?

Steel City Revival “We put it on the album because, of course, of the message. However, it has a great groove and a sound that is not heard very much right now in this industry. The music gives a spooky feel that adds to the allure of the song. Darren Morton at GAT 3 did a fantastic job helping make this arrangement of ‘Cain’s Blood.’”

 

 

Thanks so much to Jantina de Haan for going Beyond the Song to tell us about “Cain’s Blood.”

Jantina de Haan went Beyond the Song to ask gospel artist Greg Sullivan about the songs off of his album, “Have I Got Good News For You.”

Sullivan says he loves the song, “Just Because.”

“Because I take comfort in the fact that my loved ones are over there cheering me on and they are not really gone, just out of sight for a while,” says Sullivan. “One day I will join them ‘Just Beyond,'”

Sullivan confesses, “But my favorite on the album is ‘Another Child is Coming Home.’

“Seeing God deliver my daughter from a six-year drug addiction that almost took her life, makes the song very special to me. I got to feel what the Prodigal Father felt when his son came home when my daughter called last May and asked, “Daddy can I come home?’ One of the greatest days of my life. Now I am able to give people hope because what God did for my family!”

Beyond the Song: the Williamsons talk about “Every Moment, Every Mountain, Every Mile”

Written by Staff on March 16, 2019 – 11:51 am -

Williamsons Featured on Gospel Greats!

Williamsons

Jantina de Haan went Beyond the Song to ask the Williamsons about their latest hit, “Every Moment, Every Mountain, Every Mile.”

“When we received the song, ‘Every Moment, Every Mountain, Every Mile,’ we had already pretty much settled on our song list for our latest project, ‘Give Them Jesus,'” said Donnie Williamson. “After listening to the demo given to us by one of the writers, Joel Lindsey, we decided to change the song list so we could add this great song. It spoke to us from the very first time we heard it. After recording it, we learned that it was speaking to other people as well. In fact, a pastor friend of ours in West Virginia said he was really struggling with several things in his life and had decided to resign his church. However, he heard this song on the radio one day and it spoke to his heart. It reminded him that God was still with him and would never leave him nor forsake him and the most important thing – It’s all worth it!

Williamson continued, “So many times when we’re on the road and things get difficult and trying, it’s great to be reminded that we will never regret what we do for him when offering our bodies as living sacrifices. No one who has lived their life for Jesus was ever sorry for it when it came their time to leave this world.”

About the Williamsons

The Williamson Family began singing together as a group in 1969 with Woody and Pinky Williamson and their children Donnie and Tennie. They held concerts and revival meetings in Oklahoma and the surrounding states. The group was reorganized in 1998 as The Homesteaders Quartet. This group officially changed their name to The Williamsons in 2008. Members of the Williamsons today include Donnie Williamson and his wife Lisa, their children Sadie and Olivia Williamson, Darin Hebert, Karl Rice, and Bo Chesser. For more information click here.

Beyond the Song: Scotty Inman of Triumphant talks about “Even Me”

Written by Staff on March 11, 2019 – 6:46 am -

 Scott Inman of Triumphant Qt on the song Even Me'' 1 What does the song mean to you personally. 2 Why you picked it for this new album 1. I believe The lyric speaks to everyone. We’ve heard the verse John 3:16 over and over and we see the word, “world” and forget to realize God sent His son to die for “each one of us; you and me”. Me, with all my Shame, failures, and stains. If you were the only one, he would’ve died for you. It’s truly amazing to believe that “God so loved the world” means, even me. 2. We actually had all songs picked for the album and at the last second kenna turner west texted and asked if we were still looking for songs. I told her not really but if she had something we just couldn’t turn down, to send it on. She proceeded to send us our first single (written by: kenna turner West, Jeff Bumgardner & Jason cox) from the album. Funny how that works! I can’t imagine this album with out the song “Even Me” on it. As soon as we heard the demo we all looked at each other without hesitation and said “that’s going on the album”. This song is already making a mark and ministering to so many people and we pray that’ll Continue for many years to come

Jantina de Haan went Beyond the Song to talk to Scotty Inman of Triumphant about their new song, “Even Me.” Inman says that the words are very personal.

“I believe the lyric speaks to everyone.
