Acclaimed Male Vocalist Captures Some of His Favorite Hymns on New Release

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—February 26th, 2018—GRAMMY® and GMA DOVE Award-winning recording artist Guy Penrod has just recorded an all-new collection of hymns entitled Blessed Assurance (Gaither Music Group/Servant Records). Produced by Penrod and Jonathan Crone, the audio recording, which released on Friday, features some of the most popular hymns of the church—classics that are also some of Penrod’s personal favorites.

“It’s with great excitement that I release my second album of hymns, Blessed Assurance,” stated Penrod. “These are 12 more of my favorite hymns that express valuable truths about God’s love and care for us. These musical arrangements were designed to invite listeners to sing along to these timeless lyrics of eternal hope, and I hope they will do just that and find refreshing and strength from these ageless hymns, just as I have.”

Blessed Assurance, Penrod’s seventh solo recording, contains “There Is Power in the Blood,” “The Love of God,” “In the Sweet By and By,” “I Surrender All,” “In the Garden,” the title song and more, all of which showcase Penrod’s signature personality; unmistakable, rich tones; and country-influenced style.

That style can be seen on TV as the recording is being advertised as part of a television special currently running on DISH TV, DirecTV, RFD-TV, Gaither Television Network, TBN, FamilyNet, CTN, GMC, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN. It is airing in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV. The new CD is being promoted via social media and will be positioned in retail/e-tail outlets everywhere in addition to the Gaither consumer catalog, and it will be featured on the “HOMECOMING Weekly” program on Sirius XM.

Gaither Music Group’s All-new Docu-musical Rides to Top of Three Music Sales Charts

Written by Staff on November 10, 2016 – 4:20 pm -

Gaither Gospel Series: Circuit Rider

Gaither Gospel Series: Circuit Rider

Suzanne Jennings and Woody Wright’s Unique Circuit Rider Creation Strikes a Chord with Listeners
Award-winning Gaither HOMECOMING Artists Creatively Document
a Chapter of Our Nation’s History
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—November 7th, 2016—Gaither Music Group’s all-new Circuit Rider DVD rode straight to the top of this past week’s Billboard Music Video chart in addition to the Christian Music Video chart, according to Nielsen Soundscan, garnering the #1 position on both. The audio version of the docu-musical also claimed the #1 position on the Southern Gospel Album Sales chart and a Top 20 spot on the Contemporary Christian Music chart.
“This project has been a labor of love and a long time in the making,” stated Circuit Rider’s co-creator Suzanne Jennings. “We feel excited and privileged to be releasing this docu-musical honoring the great men and women who laid the foundations of our faith here in America.”

The recording features vocal performances from some of the most celebrated talents on the Gaither HOMECOMING stage, including Guy Penrod, Russ Taff, William Lee Golden, Gloria Gaither, Lynda Randle, Tanya Goodman Sykes, Mark Lowry, Benjy Gaither, Woody Wright, Buddy Greene, Judy Martin Hess, The Isaacs, Joy Gardner, Reggie Smith, Charlotte Ritchie, Angie Primm, Michael Sykes and more. The DVD is hosted by former governor of Arkansas, talk show host and presidential nominee Mike Huckabee.
Created by Jennings and Woody Wright, Circuit Rider is the real-life account of the spiritual formation of a nation and the church we have today shaped in part by the dedication and vision of these circuit riders. These musical performances and readings, sung and read by some of the most well-loved gospel artists, tell the story of these preachers who blazed the trail to share the gospel of Jesus with people of every race and nationality living in little towns and settlements across the nation. These brave men and women, from every denomination and creed, understood the meaning of perseverance and sacrifice. Their stories are not often told, but they are as much a part of the American landscape as Mt. Rushmore and the Grand Canyon.
That story of hardships, revivals, baptism, sanctification and suffering is captured through this release, which is currently airing as a TV special on a large number of networks including PBS, DirecTV, Dish TV, AT&T U-verse, TBN, RFD, GaitherTV, FamilyNet, CTN, GMC, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN. In Canada it is airing on Vision TV, The Miracle Channel, CTS and Hope TV.
Gaither Music Group brought in the esteemed Michael Merriman to direct the filmmaking, and he and Stephanie Reeves produced the LIVE performances taped at Fiddler’s Grove Historic Village in Lebanon, Tennessee. Jennings and Michael Nolen teamed up for the screenwriting.
Circuit Rider is exclusively distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and is available throughout general market stores and the Christian marketplace in addition to online retailers including iTunes, Amazon and www.gaither.com.

Gospel and Country Singer Returns to Familiar Grounds

to Showcase Some of Today’s Most Loved Hymns and Worship Songs

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—GRAMMY® and GMA DOVE Award-winning recording artist Guy Penrod has announced the release of a LIVE recording of some of today’s most cherished hymns and popular worship songs. LIVE Hymns & Worship, (Gaither Music Group/Servant Records), produced by Penrod, will be available everywhere on January 29th, in both audio and DVD formats.
“Unity within the family of God is at the center of His heart,” explained the 2015 GMA DOVE Award nominee.  “I believe this DVD will help encourage us as believers to come together around the person of Jesus. We praised God using hymns and worship songs that everyone knows, weaving them together throughout the evening. We purposely recorded these songs in major keys and in arrangements with which people, and especially men, can easily sing along.  I love seeing the smiles on people’s faces as they join in.”
The nationally acclaimed, award-winning vocalist, known for his unmistakable, rasp-tinged vocals, went “home” to his alma mater for this special concert, which was recorded at Thomas Road Baptist Church at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.  Featuring the Liberty University Center for Worship Choir, the evening included a long set list of classic and contemporary favorites.
The university is where Penrod first met his future wife, Angie, when they both attended college there.  After earning their degrees Angie and Guy married and started a family, and Penrod began his career in music–a career that now boasts combined sales in excess of four million units.  One of the most popular artists featured on the Gaither Homecoming Video Series, Penrod spent 14 years as the lead singer of the Gaither Vocal Band before launching a successful solo ministry in 2010.
The Penrod Family and Guy’s ministry grew quickly.  Today he and Angie live on a farm, just south of Nashville, TN, with their eight children—seven sons and one daughter.  When he is not farming and enjoying time at home with his “tribe,” Guy and his band of musicians are on the road sharing his faith in song to audiences nationwide.
The DVD includes behind-the-scenes footage with the Penrod Family, allowing viewers to “spend some time” with them on their farm and hear messages behind the music through an up-close interview on their front porch with Penrod.
LIVE Hymns & Worship will receive prime placement in retail outlets and will air as part of a television special on Dish TV (Gaither TV, Channel 276), PBS, GaitherTV, TBN, RFD, FamilyNet, CTN, GMC, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN.  It will also air in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV.

Candi’s Catch-ups: An Evening of Worship with Guy Penrod ready to tape!

Written by Staff on October 2, 2014 – 10:25 am -

2014-09-24 21.41.13

 

By Candi Combs

 

Thomas Road Baptist Church and Liberty University is all abuzz this week with anticipation of An Evening of Worship with Guy Penrod, Friday, October 3. Dress rehearsals at the church are on track for Thursday as LU students prepare to lend choral arrangement vocals for the event.

2014-09-25 11.53.50The Dove Award and Grammy Award winning vocalist Guy Penrod said, “Going to Lynchburg is a lot like going Home!”

While attending college in Lynchburg at Liberty Baptist College (now Liberty University) Guy displayed his talent with the Sounds of Liberty. He quickly became a favorite of Thomas Road Baptist Church and Liberty’s student body. Shortly after graduating, Guy and wife Angie found their way to Nashville. It was there, that work as a studio vocalist led to the invitation to become the lead singer for the Gaither Vocal Band. 

2014-09-24 21.41.54Guy has now established a solo ministry that has him booking dates internationally. With that unmistakable voice and the ability to communicate like few others can, you do not want to miss the singer recognized around the world on his special night back home.

Each time Guy comes home to Lynchburg it is an extraordinary evening. Guy’s normal program takes a back seat when he comes home to Lynchburg. October 3, 2014 will be a wonderfully unique night of Praise and Worship to the King as Guy performs favorites from his debut album ‘Breath Deep’, selections from the award winning ‘Hymns’ album and his current project release ‘Worship’.

2014-09-24 21.40.58When  Penrod graces the stage at the famed Thomas Road Baptist Church, he will be joined on stage by a 240-voice choir, live background singers (coming in from Nashville just for the night) and an extensive band of Nashville best musicians.

The powerhouse vocalist wishes just one thing for the night “…..to join the younger generation and the older generation in one unified voice, lifting praise to the KING OF KINGS. We are going to mix Hymns and Worship songs for a wonderfully unique night of WORSHIP to the LORD. So everybody come join us. I would love to see you there.”

Byron Davis with Lift HIM Up Events told SGN Scoops that they are thrilled to invite everyone to this special DVD taping with Gaither Music Group.

Plan to be in Lynchburg, Va., October 3rd – 6:30 pm at the Worship Center at Thomas Road Baptist Church. Tickets are still available!
