April 16, 2013 (Nashville, TN) – IMC Management in association with Showcase Management announced today plans for the Cathedrals Family Reunion event to be held November 8-9, 2013 in Fort Worth, TX at the MacGorman Performing Arts Center. For the first time ever, the event will feature Scott Fowler, Danny Funderburk, Ernie Haase, Mark Trammell and Gerald Wolfe together on one stage singing the classic songs of The Cathedrals. In addition, the weekend will feature appearances by Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Legacy Five, Greater Vision, Mark Trammell Quartet and Danny Funderburk.
In a video press conference, Landon Beene, IMC Management President, made the announcement along with Scott Fowler, Danny Funderburk, Ernie Haase, Mark Trammell and Gerald Wolfe. Les Butler (Singing News/Solid Gospel) began the press conference, introduced Beene, and then each individual was asked to share their favorite memory from their time with the legendary quartet.
Celebrating the legacy of the iconic Cathedral Quartet, the event will feature music from each of the current artists as well as special once-in-a-lifetime “reunion moments” during every unique session of the event. Several surprises and activities are scheduled including an exhibit of Cathedrals’ memorabilia and a very special chance to see and tour “Silhouette,” the last touring bus George Younce, Glen Payne, Roger Bennett and all The Cathedrals traveled millions of miles in. A Q&A session with The Cathedrals alumni will be a special highlight of the event and is sure to delight fans with a “behind-the-scenes” look into the world of The Cathedrals.
“It has been a personal dream of mine, and countless Cathedral aficionado’s, to see all of these men come together again,” said Landon Beene. “Since the farewell concert in 1999, they have not shared the stage together. Now, this dream will become a reality. You don’t want to miss this!”

”Memories With Libbi Perry Stuffle”
Written by Laura Kennedy
SGNScoops Magazine, July 2012
One of six children, Southern Gospel’s most beloved alto singer recently allowed SGN Scoops the privilege of some talk time. Singing, as Libbi is quick to share, has been her whole life; “I had just turned seven. We started singing on Christmas day, 1970 after the loss of my 13 year old brother, Johnny, that previous July 30, 1970. The Perrys decided to go full time after the loss of my baby brother George who was also 13 at the time of his death on June 5, 1982.”
The Perrys, in the mid 1980′s, signed with former pianist for the Happy Goodman Family, Eddie Crook on his Morning Star Records label. Libbi later met and married Tracy Stuffle who would then become the group’s longtime bass singer. For over 40 years and throughout various personnel changes, the group has not only been well received, but is one of the leading Mixed Groups in the industry today.
In my opinion, receiving awards and recognition is evidence of diligence to a skill and craft. In southern gospel music, the most important ingredient to the success of any writer, musician, or vocal artist is the rich indwelling and guiding force of the Lord Jesus Christ. And when the Lord allows, an artist can touch and deeply affect the spiritual walk or even awakening of their listener. Libbi is that kind of artist. And as such, has been awarded Singing News Fan Awards for the 2005 Female Vocalist and Alto Singer Of The Year and the 2006 Alto Singer of the Year. While at the 2009 National Quartet Convention, Libbi was voted Favorite Alto in the 2009 Singing News Fan Awards. Both she and The Perrys received 11, Top 5 nominations in the 2010 Singing News Fan Awards for Favorite Artist, Mixed Group, Male Vocalist, Female Vocalist, Horizon Individual, Young Artist, Alto, Lead, Songwriter, Album, & Song. And most recently, Libbi was awarded Singing News Fan Awards, for the 2011 Favorite Alto of the Year.
Clearly, the traditional tone and strength of Libbi’s voice is what makes her a fan to many. When asked how that particular quality speaks to her, Libbi replies; “It overwhelms me! I never dreamed in a million years that people would even consider my singing anything to be awarded for. To say that I am honored would be an understatement!” Read more »

(Nashville, Tennessee) – The musical genius of Gordon Mote was honored with the 2011 Academy of Country Music’s Piano/Keyboard Player of the Year Award at the recent annual ACM Honors ceremony held at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. Gordon, a seven-time nominee, was also honored with the coveted award in 2009.
Long recognized by the industry as one of Nashville’s most talented studio musicians who seemingly knows no limits in effortlessly crossing musical styles and genres, Mote’s talents can be heard on the recordings of some of the nation’s premier performers, including Bill & Gloria Gaither and the Homecoming Friends, Billy Ray Cyrus, Blake Shelton, Scotty McCreery, Elvis Presley, The Hoppers, Brad Paisley, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, George Jones, The Isaacs, Josh Turner, Alan Jackson, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Jason Crabb, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts and Alison Krauss, just to name a few.
Since releasing his debut Southern Gospel recording in 2004, the talented singer and musician has enjoyed much success, including numerous Top 40 hits in multiple music genres and numerous Fan Award nominations. Mote’s video release, “The Best of Gordon Mote,” made its debut at Number 7 on the Billboard Music Video Chart in 2008. Mote’s travels on tour are global – include stops in the US, Canada and Europe. He is a featured artist on the stage sharing his vocal and keyboard performances with music legend Bill Gaither and his Grammy Award winning Gaither Vocal Band and the Homecoming Friends.
The 5th Annual ACM HONORS represents an evening of musical tribute performances and special presentations celebrating the special honorees and non-televised category winners from the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, held earlier this year.
Fresh from his success at the ACM’s presentation, Gordon had just enough time to place his latest trophy on the mantle before being called to more awards duties – this time to emceeing the Singing News Fan Awards / SGMA Hall of Fame Induction at Dollywood with Co-Host Gerald Wolfe of Greater Vision. Gordon delighted the Pigeon Forge crowd with his quick wit and humor-providing a show stopping moment when he settled down behind the keyboard for an impromptu piano duet with Gerald Wolfe.

From Gerald Wolfe If it comes to your mind, please remember to pray for us as we travel this weekend. After our Sunday Morning Worship Service, the bus will roll toward Tennessee, and I will fly from Dallas to Atlanta to prepare for my surgery on Monday. Right now, I’m scheduled to go “under the knife” at 11am (Eastern), so your prayers around that time would be very much appreciated.

(Hendersonville, TN) October 11, 2010 – The seats of the Trinity Music City Auditorium in Hendersonville, TN, were filled with excited fans from all over the U.S. on, October 7, 2010, for the Jubilee! 2 celebration. Daywind Records’ artists Greater Vision, Legacy Five, and the Booth Brothers teamed up for the second installment of their successful Jubilee series, creating an unforgettable evening of Gospel music and fellowship. This stellar lineup also included special guest, Mark Trammell Quartet, who brought the house down with their rendition of “I Wanna Know.”
The evening was a modern-day version of the classic “Gospel Singing Jubilee,” with all four groups opening with the “Jubilee” theme song, followed by each group singing a few of their favorites. The second half featured Greater Vision, Booth Brothers and Legacy Five, who sang songs featured on the Jubilee! 2 project. After bringing out the Mark Trammell Quartet for another song, the night ended with all four groups singing together.
The excitement of having all of these groups together and performing songs so loved by the fans was felt throughout the building. Gerald Wolfe of Greater Vision shares, “this was one of the best video-tapings we’ve ever been involved in, and the enthusiasm of the audience was contagious! I can’t wait to see the finished product!”
Details on the release of the DVD will be available at a later date. The show will air in prime time on TBN in January 2011.
