The Anchormen reach all ages with project “Believe”

Written by SGN Scoops on February 16, 2012 – 8:39 am -

Nashville, TN – Homeland Entertainment Group announces the anticipated release of The Anchormen’s “Believe” project.  Listeners can expect to hear a fresh, professional quartet sound in the new album.  The project features classics such as “Just as I am” and reflective tunes like “The Day Nobody Praised Him.” 
 
The Anchormen quartet consists of Karl Rice (Tenor), Dale Forbes (Lead), Terry Carter (Baritone), and Paul Harkey (Bass).  “They all have a way of connecting and ministering to every age group,” said Manager Tim Bullins, “It really works well.” 
 
Ministry is the main focus of The Anchormen.  The versatile group is able to entertain and sing, but it is evident that ministry is their mission.  Lead singer, Dale Forbes served as a pastor for fourteen years.  “We want to be a part of seeing the whole family come back to gospel music,” added Bullins.
 
Homeland Inspiration Group gladly welcomed The Anchormen to the label last year.  “Homeland’s ideas and our vision really clicked.  As a group, we felt this would be good for us.  We shared direction in music and ideas of their future and ours.  Everything we needed they had the answers for, and everything has followed through,” said Bullins. 
 
Listeners can expect to hear strong ballads, praise songs, and melodic quartet worship tunes on the new “Believe” album.  “So many songs are geared toward the Christian, but not so much towards the person hurting with today’s problems,” said Bullins, “We want to reach a new generation.  Today is a whole different world with new problems to minister to.”  Concert goers can expect an experience of good gospel music, strong lyrical messages, and uplifting ministry when seeing the Anchormen live.

It featured original compositions by Mayo, as well as “The Lowest Valley” , a song written by her Mother.

Her first national releases from it were called, “I Think I’ll Run” and “You Rescue Me.”  With the new release on Heartwarming records Patsy has been introduced to even a larger audience as she travels into new areas bringing her refreshing style of music to audiences that appreciate Southern Gospel with a country Flair that reaches all ages.
