“25 Days of Sharing” -Les Butler

Written by scoopsnews on December 4, 2018 – 3:35 am -

December is a time for sharing. At Christmas, we (Christians) celebrate The Greatest Gift of All, Jesus Christ.

Over the next few weeks we will be talking with many industry leaders, artists, pastors, promoters, etc. and asking them questions.  They will “share” the answer to the question in 10 seconds or less. We are asking for their best advice on many different topics.

 

Question number 4 goes to Les Butler, owner of Butler Music  Group.

Les, you’ve been around a lot of Bluegrass music in your time and promoted many number 1 songs. What advice would you give a Bluegrass group in picking a radio single in 10 seconds or less?

Nashville, TN (November 6, 2017) Pigeon Forge Tennessee has become a destination for Southern Gospel Fans. The Smoky Mountain town hosts several major events throughout the year including the National Quartet Convention, Creekside Gospel Music Convention, Gatlinburg Gathering and the Fall Harvest Celebration at Dollywood. During the month of October, several Butler Music Group artists appeared at Dollywood as part of their month-long concert series.

Butler Music Group Artists Shine At Dollywood's Fall Harvest CelebrationThe Showstreet Palace in Dollywood played host to four Butler Music Group artists. The Williamsons are staples on the largest stages Gospel Music has to offer. They performed many of their hit songs including their Singing News #1 song, “Shout.” Also appearing at Showstreet were the Old Time Preachers Quartet, Heaven’s Mountain Band, and Jason Davidson. The Old Time Preachers Quartet, fresh off their debut appearance at NQC, received an enthusiastic welcome from 5 standing room only crowds. Heavens Mountain Band is often mentioned alongside groups such as the Issacs and Primitive Quartet. They appeared on multiple days and their theater was also standing room only for each show. The 2018 Harvest Festival marked the first appearance for breakout soloist, Jason Davidson. “In addition to singing and playing with my own quartet, I thoroughly enjoyed playing mandolin with Heaven’s Mountain Band and piano with Jason Davidson. It was a special treat to play along-side my son, Matt who played bass for Jason. My daughter was emcee for this series. What a proud moment,” states BMG owner, Les Butler.

Butler Music Group Artists Shine At Dollywood's Fall Harvest CelebrationOne of the many great things that makes the Fall Harvest Celebration so great is being able to see so many groups at one time spread out across the park.

Three Bridges Sign With Butler Music Group Management

Three Bidges and Butler Music Group

Three Bidges and Butler Music Group

Nashville, TN (May 1, 2016) Award winning trio, Three Bridges, recently signed with Butler Music Group’s management division. Three Bridges music is rooted in traditional Southern Gospel and Black Gospel music. This blended style has made Three Bridges an internationally-acclaimed Gospel group — one that is known for tight harmonies, a unique vocal style, an exciting and energy packed stage presence and, most importantly, for spreading the joy of the Good News of Christ. They have entertained and ministered to millions through their recordings, TV appearances and live shows — which is why they have quickly become one of the most prominent Gospel groups in Christian music today.

“Three Bridges are very excited to have the Butler Music Group not only promoting our radio singles but also promoting our monthly activity…We feel very blessed to have the professionalism of Les Butler and Matt Felts on our side promoting our music, and our ministry. What a delight it is to work with these wonderful Christian men,” stated Elliot McCoy.

For well over a decade, Three Bridges has packed out auditoriums, churches, business conventions, and charitable relief events all across the nation. They have appeared on numerous Gaither Homecoming videos and live concerts. Their powerful music has even made its way onto Air Force One, where then President George W Bush played their CD and then sent them a personal note to tell them how it impacted him personally. Their ministry has touched lives around the world, made evident by their inclusion as special guests on a United Nation video.

“We are excited to work with a group of this caliber. When I think of Three Bridges, I think of three sticks of Gospel dynamite. Let’s just say, when they’re in the house; you know it,” stated Les Butler, President of Butler Music Group.
