Johnson City, TN – The successful promotions company, IMC Concerts, has announced plans for the addition of several of Southern Gospel Music’s most popular and talented recording artists to be featured during the 2016 Texas Gospel Music Festival. The event will take place November 4 & 5, 2016 at the McGorman Performing Arts Center in Ft. Worth, TX.
In the past, the event has featured the Cathedrals Family Reunion. This year’s Texas Gospel Music Festival will again feature the Reunion with Legacy Five, Greater Vision and Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, as well as the Mark Trammell Quartet. The Cathedrals Family Reunion will serve as the finale for the weekend.
Additionally, the weekend will highlight The Booth Brothers, The Collingsworth Family, The Erwins, Mark Lowry and brand new trio Cana’s Voice, featuring TaRanda Greene, Doug Anderson and Jody McBrayer. “We are very excited about the additions we have made to the Texas Gospel Music Festival,” IMC President, Landon Beene, states. “Texas boasts a rich gospel music tradition. It is where many gospel music legends got their start, including long-time Cathedral Quartet member Glen Payne, who called Rockwall, TX, home. We are very excited about what we believe will become another rich Texas gospel music tradition.”
For those attending the weekend, IMC has created a number of lodging packages that will feature special activities with several of the artists featured on this event. “After a great night of music, there is nothing better than being able to go back to hotel and enjoy great fellowship with other event attendees and some of the artists featured on the program,” Beene explains. “We are planning some very special activities for those who take advantage of the special lodging packages we are creating. This will be a really fun opportunity for those out of town guests who will be attending.”

Hendersonville, TN (December 17, 2015) – Daywind Music Group is celebrating a wildly successful year at Southern Gospel Radio.

Coming in at #3 is June’s #1 song, ‘That’s What I Miss the Most’ by The Bowling Family, followed by Greater Vision’s hit single ‘Put Out The Fire,’ from the project, As We Speak. The title track for the Dove Award winning & GRAMMY nominated project, ‘Pray Now,’ by Karen Peck & New River rounds out the Top 5 songs. The Browders’ fifth consecutive #1 single, ‘Time Machine,’ came in at #6 for the year, having been named the #1 song for the month of November.
Altogether, Daywind recording artists accounted for 59 of all charting singles in 2015. Furthermore, Daywind Publishing produced a record-breaking 119 charting singles this year.
Ed Leonard, President of Daywind, shared, “Our artists, writers, producers, engineers, and musicians put their hearts and souls into this music, and our partners at radio are sharing it with the world. We are so thankful to radio for playing our music!”

We get the opportunity to travel in the Jubilee Christmas tour and it is a blast of a trip! This year, I took a few minutes and asked most of the Jubilee gang a Christmas question. I hope you enjoy this Jubilee Christmas edition of On the Couch With Fouch.
