MARK LOWRY TEAMS WITH CANA’S VOICE TO PRESENT DIAPERS TO DEPENDS TOUR

MARK LOWRY TEAMS WITH CANA’S VOICE TO PRESENT DIAPERS TO DEPENDS TOUR

(Johnson City, TN)… Those who know Mark Lowry best will attest that the comedic genius is a rather complex individual. As Kevin Williams, his long-time friend and the producer of Lowry’s latest recording has stated, “Mark is funny, serious, simple, complex, in the moment and in the future, all at the same time.” Mark would attribute this complexity to his ADHD diagnosis, but those who know him well simply attest that Mark just loves life and all the complexities that come with living life to the fullest and making each day count.

Over the years, Mark has shared the stage with many of the most elite singers and musicians to ever grace a concert stage. He was a member of the famed Gaither Vocal Band for over 20 years and has also teamed with the likes of The Martins, The Isaacs, Chonda Pierce and Michael W. Smith to create musical harmony that is loved by audiences of all ages. In the Spring of 2017, Lowry will once again team with three of music’s elite as he partners with newly formed musical trio, Cana’s Voice to present the “Diapers To Depends” Tour. “Yes, you read correctly,” Lowry says smiling. “We are indeed calling this the Diapers To Depends Tour because our goal is to attract everyone. I thought about calling it ‘from babies in walkers to Grannies in walkers’, but we settled on Diapers To Depends,” Lowry laughs.

This event indeed will, no doubt, attract listeners of all ages, as it will be a night the entire family will enjoy, regardless of stylistic preferences. Comprised of iconic Gospel singers, Jody McBrayer (formerly of Avalon), TaRanda Greene (formerly of The Greenes) and Doug Anderson (formerly of Signature Sound), Cana’s Voice is quickly capturing the attention of music lovers from varying genres. In late summer, the trio released their very first recording, “This Changes Everything,” comprised of 13 songs, selected by design to offer encouragement to those who may feel they are in a hopeless situation, living in a hopeless world. “Our desire is to use each opportunity we are given to help audiences and listeners understand the importance of pressing on through hard time and believing that God has a great plan,” McBrayer states. “We look forward to the opportunity this Tour with Mark will offer us. Our desire is to use this platform to help change the lives of many people by sharing with them God’s mercy and grace.”

The Diapers To Depends Tour will take place in many cities nationwide throughout 2017. IMC Concerts will serve as Tour promoter and will be offering General Admission Seating, as well as Artist Circle Seating and a variety of Family Packages, in addition to VIP tickets, allowing concert attendees early admittance, preferred seating, a private exclusive question and answer session with the artists, and a souvenir autographed tour lanyard. In addition to Lowry and Cana’s Voice, the Tour will also feature multi-talented pianist, Stan Whitmire. “I am so excited to be on the road with my dear friends and incredible singers and the powerful voices of TaRanda, Jody and Doug. The icing on the cake is that we have the greatest pianist in Gospel music with us in Stan Whitmire. It truly is a night for the whole family to enjoy.

Complete information regarding all Diapers To Depends Tour dates is available online at www.imcconcerts.com.

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

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.

The Harper Agency Announces The Addition Of Mark Lowry To Its Roster

The Harper Agency Announces The Addition Of Mark Lowry To Its Roster

Goodlettsville, TN – The Harper Agency, one of Christian Music’s premiere booking agencies, is pleased to announce the addition of award-winning Christian entertainer Mark Lowry to its elite roster of talented artists.

Best known for the penning of the Christmas classic, “Mary, Did You Know,” the platinum-selling singer, songwriter and storyteller, with a career spanning over four decades, shows no signs of slowing down. A 2015 inductee into the Gospel Music Hall Of Fame, Mark Lowry spent more than 20 collective years as a member of the legendary Gaither Vocal Band, and often still serves as Bill Gaither’s comedic sidekick on the Gaither stage. His distinctive ability to communicate with audiences large and small has opened doors throughout his career; leading to appearances on stages such as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, among others. Mark has been seen on tour with artists such as Michael W. Smith, Phillips, Craig & Dean, LordSong, and most recently, The Martins, Rambo McGuire, and Cana’s Voice.
“I am looking forward to the start of a great relationship with the Harper Agency and I’m eager to explore how we can grow together,” shares Mark Lowry. “The Harper Agency has a fantastic reputation within Christian music and I’m honored to be associated with such a first-class organization.”
Ed Harper, President of the Harper Agency, comments, “In addition to being a great singer, songwriter, and a phenomenal communicator on stage; Mark is hilarious! He is certainly a great addition to our agency’s roster and we are honored to represent such a great artist.”
“Once the news came across my desk, I was overwhelmed with honor that Mark Lowry had agreed to have his booking responsibilities turned over to the Harper Agency,” continues Jeff Harper, VP of the Harper Agency. “This is a huge responsibility, as Mark can pretty much pick and choose which agency or representative he would like for his booking needs. We at Harper feel extremely gracious to take this task off his hands. Mark is a household name in the music industry; not only in Southern Gospel, but in all genres of Christian music, comedy and most important, ministry. His declarations in the industry as an artist and songwriter speak for itself. You get it all with Mark at one of his shows: you’ll laugh, sing along, and also feel his commitment to spread the Gospel to all ages.”
The Harper Agency and Mark Lowry make this announcement just days before the release of his brand new comedy DVD & CD, Dogs Go To Heaven. The 2-hour video combines a taste of the Music & Madness tour that audiences across the country have enjoyed with some very special moments of ‘interruption.’ Dogs Go To Heaven will be available at Christian Retail and online at www.marklowry.com on Friday, May 20th.
To schedule Mark Lowry, contact The Harper Agency at 615.851.4500 or visit their website at www.harperagency.com.
