2013 National Quartet Convention – A Celebration of Two Decades of Memories

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on September 18, 2013 – 10:28 am -

Louisville, KY – The 56th Annual National Quartet Convention is now in the history books. For seven 2013 NQCconsecutive days, Southern Gospel Music fans from more than 40 states and at least a half dozen countries experienced the city of Louisville, KY, one more time. The week-long event officially concluded on Saturday, September 14, as production trucks were packed, exhibit booths disassembled, cars, vans and buses loaded, and the Kentucky Fair & Expo Center silent once again, marking the end of an era – the end of the National Quartet Convention in Louisville.

Southern Gospel Music’s premier event first moved to Louisville from the city of Nashville in 1994. There were those who were not in favor of the move from Music City USA. Even Convention Board members admitted that the move was quite bold. Louisville’s Freedom Hall held twice as many seats as the Muncipal Auditorim in Nashville, TN, which had been the NQC home for more than a decade. Fortunately, for the NQC Board, fans, artists and industry members, the move proved to be the right one, as the 1994 NQC set record attendance figures, with evening concert attendance more than doubling and the exhibit area nearly quadrupling. Since arriving in Louisville, the Convention has experienced unprecedented growth, with many special events taking place over the past two decades.

Many Convention attendees, including artists and fans have enjoyed all 20 years in Louisville. While bittersweet sentiments could be felt throughout the 2013 NQC, an air of excitement was also present. Memories of Louisville will forever remain in hearts; nevertheless, eager anticipation awaits for those who make preparations to converge upon the city that will soon be the NQC’s new home. According to Clarke Beasley, NQC Executive Director, the final year in Louisville was a great success. “This year many nights had greater attendance than last year, and our subscriber based webcast set an all-time record,” Beasley stated. “Fans attending enjoyed another wonderful year in Louisville, but there is obviously eager anticipation for next year in Pigeon Forge, as advances for next year’s seating and hotel reservations set advance sales records. So we are very excited as the NQC begins a new era.”

The 2013 Convention provided many special memories during it’s final year in Louisville. Many of Gospel music’s most popular recording artists were featured at this year’s event, including multi-award winning recording artists like The Gaither Vocal Band, The Gatlins, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Jason Crabb, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, The Isaacs, Gordon Mote, The Booth Brothers, The Kingdom Heirs, The Hoppers, Greater Vision and The Mark Trammel Quartet. Additionally, the event featured noted speakers such as Ken Davis, Dr David Jeremiah, Dr Johnny Hunt and Dennis Swanberg. As attendees reminisced about the past 20 years in Louisville, they look forward to making many new memories in Pigeon Forge. “I am really excited,” one long-time Convention attendee stated. “I’ve been to Louisville every year, and I attended the Convention in Nashville before Louisville. In fact, I haven’t missed a year since 1983, and I don’t plan to miss being in Pigeon Forge in 2014. Wherever the music is, I plan to go!”

The 2014 National Quartet Convention will take place at the Leconte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN, as Gospel Music’s premier annual event will take place the week of September 21-27, 2013. Visit www.nqconline.com, or call 1-800-845-8499 for complete information.

WAYNE HAUN’S OLD SOUL AVAILABLE TODAY

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 23, 2013 – 1:02 pm -

Nashville, TN – StowTown Records has released, today, the ten-song collection Old Soul by Wayne Haun. Drawing from waynerenowned influences such as Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone, Dean Martin, Barbra Streisand and more, Haun takes the listener on a musical journey to a “time gone by.”

For years, the multi-awarded Wayne Haun has been known throughout the music industry as the “go-to” producer for exquisite orchestrations. Working with a variety of accomplished artists – The Perrys, Jessica Simpson, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Celine Dion, Jason Crabb, Earl Scruggs and countless others – he is known as “the genius” and has enough awards and nominations to prove it. Now, Haun, let’s the world in on another one of his many talents, as a top-notch “crooner.”

Wayne Haun comments: “I listened to every genre of music when I was growing up. From Bluegrass to Gospel, Broadway to Jazz, all those influences shaped the musician I am today. When I was introduced to Broadway, Jazz and Big Band – all the amazing and lush instrumentation – I knew I wanted to write, to orchestrate, to create those sounds and I was determined to learn how!”

Containing eight classic tunes, and two brand-new compositions, Old Soul is a musical feast for the ear. With songs like “Give Me The Simple Life,” “Are You Havin’ Any Fun” (duet with Ernie Haase), “The Sweetest Sounds,” “Bye, Bye Baby” and “Here You Come Again” (made popular by Dolly Parton) like you’ve never heard it before, this is a must-have for any music lover.
