(Hendersonville, Tennessee) Daywind Music Publishing proudly presents a new Christmas musical, THAT’S WHERE THE STORY BEGINS. Three of Christian music’s most successful songwriters, Gerald Crabb, Dave Clark and Mike Harland collaborated to re-tell the Christmas story. Suitable for choirs of all sizes, THATS WHERE THE STORY BEGINS includes stirring narration as well as wonderful new songs and familiar carols arranged and orchestrated by Camp Kirkland, Marty Hamby and Cliff Duren. The 30 minute musical captures the joyful announcement of the Messiah’s birth, and also tells how and why He became flesh to dwell among humanity.
Regarding the writing process, Clark stated, “Anytime I write with someone new for the first time, there is an inherent nervous. Because I am such a fan of Gerald Crabb and Mike Harland, I really wanted the process to go well. From our first ‘hello’ it just felt like all three of us were on the same page.”
Harland continued, THAT’S WHERE THE STORY BEGAN is the most unique writing experience of my entire career. For three writers to wrap around a single idea and then put it all together like this is a real God story! This is His story- and ours! And it is a real honor to tell it with Gerald and Dave.”
Clark added, “Looking back, I don’t remember much about the actual writing because it came together effortlessly. I doubt it’s because we’re that good of writers. You have to be a pretty bad writer to mess up a story that good. It is an amazing story- God sent His only Son from heaven to earth because somehow He thought we were worth saving. Now that will sing!”
Crabb commented “I have always wanted to write a Christmas musical, and what could be better than being teamed up with the best- Mike Harland and Dave Clark? I am very grateful to Daywind and Lifeway for giving me this opportunity and I’m also very pleased with the outcome. I pray that many hearts will be touched and lives will be forever changed.”
Rick Shelton, Vice President of Daywind Music Publishing stated, “I am proud of the way Gerald Crabb, Dave Clark and Mike Harland combined their gifts of crafting songs to create an inspired musical account of Jesus’ arrival to a hurting humanity in a fallen world. THAT’S WHERE THE STORY BEGINS not only recaps the beautiful event of God come to man, but also reveals the plan and possibilities that were set in motion that first Christmas. This presentation will surely impact those have the opportunity to experience it just as it has me.”

Daywind Music Group Hosts Greenbrier Quartet Festival 2015
Amongst the snow-topped mountains of White Sulphar Springs,West Virginia, Daywind Music Group held the first Greenbrier Quartet Festival at the extraordinary Greenbrier Resort. The event drew attendees from New Jersey to Florida and even a few Canadians. This endeavor marked an inaugural attempt by Scott Godsey and Daywind to host a multi-day event at a luxury resort. This geographic location is very different from the typical Southern Gospel venues that fans are accustomed to attending.
The Greenbrier welcomed each person with a smile and a large sweet tea! From that point forward, everything was presented on a whole new level. Even the seats in the concert hall were velvet covered while multiple stations in the room held pitchers of ice-chilled water.
Tribute Quartet, led by Gary Casto, started off the first night with their usual flair and energetic music. The lively group performed many charting songs and favorites, including, “Homesick Angel” and “Good News From Jerusalem,” featuring Josh Singletary. Read more »

Hendersonville, TN – It’s always a treat when a legendary quartet such as the Blackwood Brothers or the Oak Ridge Boys release brand new music, but when two such quartets collaborate on a new song, it’s even more special!
The Blackwood Brothers Quartet carry the distinction of being the best-known name in Gospel music history, and now 81 years after their original formation, still provide Southern Gospel music fans with solid, four-part harmonies and quality singing. Their latest project through Daywind Records, Forever: 80th Anniversary Recording, celebrates 80 years of the Blackwood Brothers Quartet and the impact they have made on the genre.
On their new radio single, “Long Gone,” the Blackwood Brothers were joined by another legendary quartet, 2015 Country Music Hall of Fame inductees, the Oak Ridge Boys. With 50 years of tradition, the Oak Ridge Boys have been decorated in both the Gospel and Country music industries as one of the most innovative and recognizable sounds in music.
“Growing up in Texas, the Blackwood Brothers and the Statesmen Quartet were at the top of the Gospel Music industry. I loved going to see them in Ft. Worth, TX at the ‘Battle Of The Songs,’” shares Duane Allen of the Oak Ridge Boys. “Having the opportunity to record with the Blackwood Brothers was a huge honor. When I heard the song, ‘Long Gone,’ I immediately knew that Billy Blackwood had a new vision for the Blackwood Brothers. The phrasing, the pushes, the style of singing, and the song in particular were all obvious signs that there is a new Blackwood Brothers for the future.”
Allen continues, “Since we recorded ‘Long Gone,’ I listened to the entire album and I will say that Billy Blackwood has managed to respect the legacy of the Blackwood Brothers name and career, but he has also placed his identity on the future of the Blackwood Brothers.”
“Long Gone” is the second single from the Blackwood Brother’s anniversary recording, Forever: 80th Anniversary Recording, and was co-written by Billy Blackwood, Kenna West & Jason Cox. The single released to Southern Gospel radio in March is already receiving a positive response from DJs across the country.
Forever is available at Christian retail stores across the country and digitally at iTunes and other outlets. Bulk purchasing for gift and ministry purposes is available by calling 1-800-635-9581.
