Butler Music Group Artists Shine At
Dollywood’s Fall Harvest Celebration

Nashville, TN (November 6, 2017) Pigeon Forge Tennessee has become a destination for Southern Gospel Fans. The Smoky Mountain town hosts several major events throughout the year including the National Quartet Convention, Creekside Gospel Music Convention, Gatlinburg Gathering and the Fall Harvest Celebration at Dollywood. During the month of October, several Butler Music Group artists appeared at Dollywood as part of their month-long concert series.

Butler Music Group Artists Shine At Dollywood's Fall Harvest CelebrationThe Showstreet Palace in Dollywood played host to four Butler Music Group artists. The Williamsons are staples on the largest stages Gospel Music has to offer. They performed many of their hit songs including their Singing News #1 song, “Shout.” Also appearing at Showstreet were the Old Time Preachers Quartet, Heaven’s Mountain Band, and Jason Davidson. The Old Time Preachers Quartet, fresh off their debut appearance at NQC, received an enthusiastic welcome from 5 standing room only crowds. Heavens Mountain Band is often mentioned alongside groups such as the Issacs and Primitive Quartet. They appeared on multiple days and their theater was also standing room only for each show. The 2018 Harvest Festival marked the first appearance for breakout soloist, Jason Davidson. “In addition to singing and playing with my own quartet, I thoroughly enjoyed playing mandolin with Heaven’s Mountain Band and piano with Jason Davidson. It was a special treat to play along-side my son, Matt who played bass for Jason. My daughter was emcee for this series. What a proud moment,” states BMG owner, Les Butler.

Butler Music Group Artists Shine At Dollywood's Fall Harvest CelebrationOne of the many great things that makes the Fall Harvest Celebration so great is being able to see so many groups at one time spread out across the park. The Coffmans and Sacred Harmony were invited to perform this year at Dollywood with the Coffmans appearing at the Back Porch Theater and Sacred Harmony at the Valley Theater. Both groups performed to packed out crowds.

Fans are encouraged to make plans now to attend the 2018 Fall Harvest Celebration to see these incredible Butler Music Groups artists and more. For more information, go to www.dollywood.com.

Family Music Group Hosts CD Release Party For Jason Davidson

Family Music Group Hosts CD Release Party For Jason Davidson

Nashville, TN Family Music Group artist Jason Davidson recently  released his debut album, He Came Searching For Me.  Over 60 Southern Gospel’s industry professionals, VIP’s, friends and family came together to celebrate his new project.  July 25 was filled with great music, food, fun and fellowship at the Family Room Studios in Gallatin, TN.  Jason wowed the crowd with five new songs off of the album throughout the night, including “Without Forgiveness,” “I Will Not Be Shaken” and “Love Sets Another Place.”  Duane Allen of the Oak Ridge Boys made a special appearance before heading out on tour, to hear Jason.

Well-known songwriters, Jerry Salley and Marty Funderburk, were also in attendance for this special night.  It was truly incredible to watch these songwriters moved to tears, by Jason’s delivery of a song in which they had poured their heart and soul.  Marty Funderburk said of the night, “What could have been just another record release party turned into a worship service as Jason Davidson sang and testified…each song so clearly illustrating his personal walk with Jesus.”  He added, “Jason Davidson possesses more than a powerful voice…he sings with a clarity of heart and purpose that could only come with time and experience!”

Jason said during the event, “I can’t sing something unless it means something to me.”  His genuineness and commitment to the lyric was evident every time he sang.  Jason is a storyteller by nature and trade.  Every word he sang, whether his own or another’s, was delivered with passion, grit, intent and love.  You couldn’t help but feel that he was sharing his own life experiences.  Rick Francis, Operations Manager, Singing News Magazine said, “This was my first opportunity to meet Jason in person, and I was extremely impressed with his vocal talent, as well as his abilities as a “communicator.”  The room was packed with people, and when he sang, he connected to everyone in the room!”
