Jeff & Sheri Easter Celebrate 30 Years of Music and Marriage

Jeff & Sheri Easter Celebrate 30 Years of Music and Marriage

Jeff & Sheri Easter Celebrate
30 Years of Music and Marriage

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—GRAMMY® nominees and multi-award-winning Jeff & Sheri Easter have just recorded an all-new release, Small Town, Celebrating 30 Years of Music & Marriage (Spring Hill Music), which will hit the street on June 23rd, coinciding with their June celebration of 30 years of marriage.

The recording, produced by Jeff and Sheri Easter, Madison Easter and Greg Cole, features 11 songs, several of which were co-written by Sheri along with some of Nashville’s most noted songwriters.  Small Town captures the warm, country-influenced musical style the group is known for and covers faith and family topics that have been important to Jeff and Sheri since they started the group three decades ago.
Kenna Turner West, Sue Smith and Jason Cox wrote ‘This Side of the Dirt’ specifically for Jeff,” explains Sheri.  “They created a beautiful story about him and the men who shaped him.  Jeff remembers sitting on the front porch with his Grandpa Sechrist, who owned a junkyard.  They would listen to the Osborne Brothers’ Favorite Hymns album, and they loved this style of music. That junkyard was an incredible teacher for Jeff, and it honed his skills as a mechanic.  His daddy always shared that love of fixing things that are broken, and it crossed over into his preaching and singing.  Encouraging folks to live better every day on this side of the dirt is a wonderful way to help fix a broken world.”
Another way the Easter Family is encouraging people offstage these days is by caretaking.  Jeff and Sheri’s daughter and group member Morgan addressed this with the song “Someone’s Listening.”

Pisgah Ridge Recording Artists The Easter Brothers and The Harper Family Nominated in the 45TH Annual GMA Dove Awards

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on August 19, 2014 – 9:07 pm -

Easters

Brothers: James, Russell and Ed, are joined by Sheri and Jeff Easter
at a CD Release Event in Nashville celebrating I’D DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN (Pisgah Ridge records)

NASHVILLE, TN —The Gospel Music Association (GMA) announced the nominees for the 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards. Artists received nominations in 42 categories for the awards which will be held Tuesday, October 7th at Allen Arean on the campus of Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN and will air on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

Artists on Pisgah Ridge (Crossroads Label Group) received nominations in the Bluegrass Album of the Year category.

The Easter Brothers are nominated for I’D DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, which was produced by Jared Easter, Steve Schramm and Gerald Crabb. Earlier this year, the Easter Brothers were joined by Jeff and Sheri Easter for a star-studded event at the Sirius XM Music City Theater in Nashville to celebrate the release of the album.

Fans of the Easter Brothers eagerly anticipated the new collection from this legendary Gospel Bluegrass trio, their first in more than a decade. Russell, James, and Ed Easter are each accomplished song writers and have been ministering through their music for over 60 years. With decades of iconic recordings, special appearances, and numerous radio and television performances, this longstanding, hard-working music family is widely admired and respected throughout the country, bluegrass, and gospel industry.

The Easter Brothers have worked their way to legendary success in the gospel industry following humble beginnings in Mt. Airy, North Carolina in the 1930’s. These enduring artists have collectively written over 300 songs, which include gospel greats such as “They’re Holding Up the Ladder” and “Thank You Lord for Your Blessings on Me.” Both of these Dove Award winning classics highlight this very special new album.

The Harper Family is nominated for THROUGH IT ALL which was produced by Tim Surrett. THROUGH IT ALL is The Harper Family’s fifth release, their second on the Pisgah Ridge/Crossroads label. From the hills of the Ozarks in Missouri comes this modest, talented family, brimming with faith. The family consists of parents Gaylon and Katrina Harper. Dalton plays guitar and has a powerful voice. His songwriting skills show the deep spiritual side to his faith. Dillon plays mandolin and sings. Dillon is also an accomplished songwriter. Dillon is joined onstage by wife, Makeena, who is also from a musical family. “Baby sister,” Hannah shares amazing vocals that belie her youth.

2014 SGMG HARMONY HONORS TO BE BROADCAST ON TBN MONDAY, APRIL 7, 2014

Written by SGN Scoops on April 7, 2014 – 10:30 am -

harmony honorsNASHVILLE (April 7, 2014) — Southern Gospel Music will be front and center on TBN as Grammy Award winning Christian music artist Jason Crabb hosts the Southern Gospel Music Guild’s 2014 Harmony Honors broadcast on TBN tonight Monday, April 7, 2014 at 10 PM EST / 9 PM EST.
The annual Harmony Honors recognize the best and brightest singers, songwriters, quartets, groups, and innovators in this unique American musical genre that has comforted, inspired, and entertained generations of fans.
This year the Harmony Honors will recognize two of Southern Gospel Music’s most storied publishing resources: Pathway Press and Stamps-Baxter Music. Southern Gospel aficionados will recognize Pathway Press as publisher of the classic “Red Back”Church Hymnal, used by thousands of churches across the South for over sixty years. Generations of gospel groups have dipped into the depths of the old “Red Back” hymnal for classic quartet and convention songs by such legendary songwriters as Albert Brumley, Vep Ellis, Luther Presley, Lee Roy Abernathy, and many others.
As for Stamps-Baxter Music, its classic “shaped-note” song books — with titles like Super SpecialsCrystal RaysSilver Tones, and Pearls of Paradise — have been used and cherished by Southern Gospel artists for over 75 years.
“I’m excited to be a part of this evening honoring the musical heritage that is so closely tied to gospel music,” said Harmony Honors host Jason Crabb. “The songs in the ‘Red Back’ hymnal and the Stamps-Baxter songbooks are the foundation for this music that is so loved. This is a well-deserved honor for both publishers and it’s going to be a great night!”
Among the musical guests for this year’s Harmony Honors will be some of the most beloved and popular names in Southern Gospel Music, including the LeFevre Quartet, the Perrys, the Tribute Quartet, Legacy Five, Three Bridges, the Nelons, Gerald Wolfe from Greater Vision, Karen Peck and New River, Jeff & Sheri Easter, the Bowling Family, Gold City, the Mark Trammell Quartet, the Whisnants, Stan Whitmire and the Mylon Hayes Family.
Also scheduled for a special guest appearance is former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, himself an accomplished musician and long-time fan of Southern Gospel Music.
TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch noted that Southern Gospel Music has been a regular part of TBN’s history over the past 40-plus years. “We’ve welcomed many Southern Gospel greats over the years,” he said. “The rich harmonies and inspirational message of this sacred music have been a blessing to generations of TBN viewers. We’re privileged once again to host the Harmony Honors.”
