Marty Raybon on Tonight’s Praise The Lord Show (TBN)

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on April 30, 2012 – 11:36 am -

Nashville, TN (April 30, 2012) —   Marty Raybon will appear on tonight’s PRAISE THE LORD  TV show on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) hosted by Jason Crabb.  The show debuts Monday, April 30 at 9:00 pm Central / 10:00 pm Eastern and re-airs tomorrow, May 1 at 4:00 pm Central / 5:00 pm Eastern (check your local listings).


“It was a night of spirit filled fun. The music was great, but the fellowship was wonderful. I had the pleasure of singing ‘I’ve Seen What He Can Do’ and “You’ve Got To Move” along with ‘Working on a Building’ with Jason Crabb, Jimmy Fortune, T. Graham Brown, and Buddy Jewell. It was a highlight I will never forget,” said Marty. All three songs appear on Marty’s HAND TO THE PLOW album recently released on Rural Rhythm Christian.


This past weekend, Marty won two Country Gospel Music Fan Awards including FAVORITE SOLOIST along with the award for FAVORITE SONG, “I’m Working On A Building.”  The awards ceremony took place April 28th during the 2012 Country Gospel Music (CGM) Awards Program presented by Christian Voice Magazine held at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center in Pigeon Forge, TN.  CGM Fan Award recipients were decided upon solely by Country Gospel Music fans who voted in a two-phase voting process held at ChristianVoiceMagazine.com.


Marty is receiving critical acclaim for HAND TO THE PLOW, that not only includes “Working On A Building”, but also the incredible new chart single, “I’ve Seen What He Can Do” which has also been released as a music video.  Marty’s popularity is soaring as a crossover artist as he is also celebrating success for another Rural Rhythm Records album, SOUTHERN ROOTS & BRANCHES (Yesterday and Today) released earlier this month.  Marty produced the album that contains classics from his previous solo albums, new original songs like his new bluegrass chart single, “Dirt Road Heartache,” a wonderful acoustic version of Shenandoah’s big hit, “I Want To Be Loved Like That,” and many more fan favorites.

Nashville, Tenn. (March 12, 2012) – Proving once again that Country music artists have a big heart for the whole world, Ken Harding, president of New Haven Records, has joined Executive Producer Mark Carman, president of MCM World Media, to announce the upcoming release of the landmark CD, I’m Working On A Building. The title cut from the project, recorded by Marty Raybon (former lead singer of Shenandoah), has already been nominated for a Country Gospel Music Fan Award, presented annually by Christian Voice magazine.

This inspiring collection of new and existing songs was created exclusively to benefit the work of International Cooperating Ministries (ICM), a non-profit foundation that has constructed approximately 4,000 churches, orphanages and schools in more than 50 countries, supporting more than 20,000 congregations during the past 25 years.

The centerpiece of this collection is a high-octane version of the title cut by Raybon, featuring Country superstar Trace Adkins, Jimmy Fortune (of The Statler Brothers), and Country Music Association Award winner T. Graham Brown. The “Working On a Building” single is already receiving a tremendous response at Christian Country, Southern Gospel and select mainstream Country radio stations and is up for Favorite Song at the CGM Fan Awards program, scheduled for April 28 as part of Country Gospel Music FanFest in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. The GCM Fan Awards, selected solely by Country and Southern Gospel music fans, are sponsored each year by Christian Voice magazine. Read more »
