(Coastal Ridge Communications) Orlando FL – Recently the trio known as Georgia, celebrated their recent radio success with friend and songwriter Dr. Pope. Georgia has been in Southern Gospel Music for over 40 years and is starting to see a resurgence on the charts. Over the last thirteen months, the group, which consists of Terry Dale, David Presley and Reggie Smallwood, has had three consecutive top 40 hit singles.
Terry Dale, owner and tenor singer, states, “We feel blessed that radio has embraced our music. My good friend and prolific songwriter, Dr. Pope, has written some great songs that we have been so thankful to be able to record and release nationally. Our group wants to thank him for all that he means to us.”
The group’s recent single, Do You Know Him, written by Dr. Pope, has been climbing the charts. “I just want to write songs that make a difference in people’s lives. I’ve had success in the secular world, but I have felt the Lord telling me to use my talents for Him”, adds Dr. Pope.

On December 6th, 2014, the Ball Brothers brought their Christmas Tour to Kennesaw, Georgia. This is their seventh year of doing the Christmas Tour. They were returning from Canada where they were in minus 16 degree weather and glad to be in the south where it was a little warmer. They carry lights, Christmas trees and a set with them on tour which also includes two snow machines.
The Ball Brothers arrived at Shiloh Hills Baptist Church around 2:30pm. We had just picked up a big sack of Arby’s sandwiches for them and Daniel gobbled two of them down before they started unloading. Each of them had a specific task to do. Trees were set up, then the lighting stands and lights were put up. They had two bars of led lights with four lights on each as well as 12 revolving lights on top of the stands. Sound check was next. They finished all this in about two and half hours for a 6:30 concert time.
The Brothers opened the concert with Joy To The World, sang numerous Christmas songs and included a few of their other hits mixed in the program. They used the snow machines on a few songs that were snow related and it was so much snow that Daniel made a snow ball and threw at Andrew. Daniel and Andrew mixed up a lot of comedy scattered through out the program. After the first set they took an intermission and came back afterwards to conclude the program.
I have done concerts for the past 12 years, including two years at Shiloh Hills Church in Kennesaw, GA. There were about 50% of the folks there that had not been to one of the concerts I’ve promoted. Most were from the Metro area but had some from TN, SC and one from Broken Arrow, OK.
The Ball Brothers spent the night at the Church after taking down their set and sang for the Sunday morning worship service before heading to North Georgia for a concert that evening. They will be hitting the road again on Thursday Dec 11 for another northern state tour including IL, OH, IN, MI and TN. You can check their website www.theballbrothers.com for their schedule. If they are within driving distance you need to catch the concert.
