HLE Radio unveils new “Christian Country Café”

HLE Radio unveils new “Christian Country Café”

JENNINGS, LA. – July 11 th , 2016 Starting back in January of 2014, HLE Radio began the monthly live concert series “HLE Unplugged”, where artists where able to perform in the station to a worldwide audience on hleradio.com. Today, “HLE

Unplugged” is still going strong and booked through 2017. The show has been so successful that another artist performance series began in June called “An Evening With,” where featured artists could perform using their own back up tracks. With the popularity of these two shows, HLE Radio has redesigned a section of their

studios to bring the perfect live performance experience to both the artist and the listener. The back wall of the studio was painted black and decorated with instruments from new sponsor Boulder Creek Instruments, which are also available to be used by the featured artists. Stage lighting was also put in place for filming of the live performances. With all of this, the new Christian Country Café was born! You can find out more about the shows broadcast from the brand new Christian

Country Cafe at www.hleunplugged.com.

M.A.C. Records Welcomes Chris Golden to the Production Team

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on May 31, 2016 – 5:38 pm -

M.A.C. Records Welcomes Chris Golden to the Production Team

M.A.C. Records Welcomes Chris Golden to the Production Team

Columbus, MS – Dennis McKay of M.A.C. Records announced on the HLE Radio Morning Show with Hunter Logan that the music industry veteran, Chris Golden, will be partnering with M.A.C. Records as a Producer for select music tracks using some of the top studio musicians in Nashville.

“I met Chris about a year ago at an event. We had the chance to visit and talk shop. Over the past several months we have developed a genuine respect for each other and brotherhood. Chris is a great producer and his projects are top notch. He brings another level of expertise and an excitement to the M.A.C. Records team. We look forward to producing some great stuff” remarked Dennis McKay, Owner of M.A.C. Records.

Chris Golden is probably most widely known as a son of the legendary Oak Ridge Boys’ William Lee Golden, and as a long standing member of The Mighty Oaks band. However, Golden’s talents and expertise in the music business spans 30 plus years as an artist, entertainer, musician, vocalist, producer, and as a sideman for acts as various as The Flying Burrito Brothers and Restless Heart. In addition to touring and recording with the Oak Ridge Boys, Chris has produced a number of his own solo projects which showcase his talents. He has also produced projects for various clients such as Polygram, and EMI, as well as a box set for his father, William Lee, called ‘My Life’s Work’. Chris has had a number of releases in both the Country and Gospel markets, and he currently holds the #1 position in the Cashbox Christian Country Charts with ‘A Different Light’, which he produced. Recently, he was awarded the 2016 ‘Crossover Artist of The Year’ by Christian Voice magazine’s Gospel Music Fan Awards.

“I am proud to be carrying on ”My Father’s” business, and excited to be a part of the M.A.C. Records production team and I look forward to working with Dennis.  My main focus is to provide a personal touch to songwriters and artists to help them sound their best while maintaining their own personal style and delivering a finished piece of magic at an affordable price. There are many places you can go to record these days, but remember…it is not the place or studio you go that creates the magic, it is the people. In my mind there are no such thing as demos…only masters!” commented Chris Golden.

 

M.A.C. Records makes its home at Studio 115A (the McKay’s recording studio) in historic Columbus, Mississippi. M.A.C. Records was a record label owned by Dennis’ father, Robert McKay, back in the 60’s. The label laid dormant for about 50 years until Dennis and Leslie McKay revived it in 2011 to carry on the tradition of gospel music. The label consists of two divisions: Magnolia Records (Southern Gospel/Contemporary Christian) and Route 82 Records (Christian Country). Through the wonder of technology, Dennis and Chris will be able to share tracks and work together to produce music whether in Columbus, MS or Nashville, TN.

 

For information about M.A.C. Records, contact Dennis McKay at 662.889.2829 or email info@macrecords.net. For information about Chris Golden, visit www.chrisgolden.net

Daywind Roots Announces Release of Good News Travels Fast by Shenandoah

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on April 29, 2016 – 3:37 pm -

Daywind Roots Announces Release of Good News Travels Fast by Shenandoah

Daywind Roots Announces Release of Good News Travels Fast by Shenandoah

Hendersonville, TN  – Legendary country band, Shendandoah will release their first-ever gospel project, Good News Travels Fast, on April 29th, 2016, on the Daywind Roots label.  The band’s signature sound, including Marty Raybon’s unmistakable vocals, seamlessly lend themselves to eleven songs of faith, redemption, and familiar southern Sundays.  The title track also serves as the first single, and is at radio now.

When country music lovers talk about the greatest groups in the genre, Shenandoah is always at the forefront of any discussion. Fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, Shenandoah became well-know for delivering such hits as ‘Two Dozen Roses,’ ‘Church On Cumberland Road,’ and ‘Next To You, Next To Me,’ as well as such achingly beautiful classics as ‘I Want To Be Loved Like That,’ and the GRAMMY Award-winning duet with Alison Krauss, ‘Somewhere In The Vicinity Of The Heart.’

Today, that legacy continues as original members Raybon and Mike McGuire reunite to launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career. Though they’ve secured their place in country music history, Raybon and McGuire are not content to rest on their laurels and have never stopped looking for new hit songs.  With a pile of outstanding songs waiting to be recorded, the group moves forward into the next chapter, determined to deliver the same top-tier music that is synonymous with Shenandoah.

Having recorded a number of faith-based songs and hymns in the past, the decision to produce a full-length gospel album was a natural one.  The project includes new and original music, the majority of which was written by band members and friends at a recent writer’s retreat in their home base of Muscle Shoals, AL.  In addition to Raybon & McGuire, gifted writers such as Jerry Salley (Chris Stapleton, Steeldrivers), Gerald Crabb (Crabb Family) and Tim Menzies (Reba McEntire, Diamond Rio) lended their considerable talents to the project.

Good News Travels Fast will be available at Christian retail stores across the country and digitally at iTunes and other online outlets. Bulk purchasing for gift and ministry purposes is available by calling 1.800.635.9581.
