“After listening to some 200 songs, I am very confident that we have assembled a stellar collection of music… perhaps the best ever for Legacy Five.  Combine that with the genius of Lari Goss and you are well on your way to a great recording.  Add in five pretty great guys and what do you have?  One amazing and “Great Day”….our brand new recording on Daywind Records,” beamed Scott Fowler of Legacy Five.

In celebration of the new CD Legacy Five is giving away a free download for the song “Christ Is Still King” before the album releases. The first 1,000 fans to email legacyfive@daywind.com will receive the free download.

Gospel Music Celebration™ Cruise to Eastern Carribbean is SOLD OUT Waiting List now Open

Written by SGN Scoops on May 4, 2012 – 2:44 pm -

Nashville TN – (May 4, 2012) Landon Beene of IMC Management and Concerts has officially announced that theGospel Music Celebration™ Cruise to the Eastern Caribbean is SOLD OUT! Organizers have opened a waiting list for the cruise which is set for January 19-26, 2013.

“We are thrilled and can’t wait to head out on the ship with all our friends who have signed up to join us,” Landon Beene said. “We’ve built a different cruise model with a limited slot of artists so that music lovers get to hear more of their favorites and get more interaction with those artists. Our cruise is designed to be a “celebration” on sea, a chance to enjoy each other. I feel like this is the primary reason our first time Caribbean destination has sold out so quickly. This fact, added with a 5-Star first class cruise line, makes for a GREAT combination. Our passengers LOVE the fact we are on a conservative cruiseline such as Holland America and when they leave our cruise they’re already on the phone inviting friends to come back with them on a future trip! That is exciting!”

Artist Scott Fowler of Legacy Five commented: “I have been singing gospel music for 23 years and have probably been on around 35 cruises in that time. IMC and Inspiration Cruises consistently give exceptional service at a great value and put us on the best luxury vessels in the fleet. They present THE BEST that gospel music has to offer and put together unique programming on board. When you add it all up, the choice is clear – if you want the best Gospel Music Cruise experience anywhere, IMC Gospel Music Celebration™ Cruises are IT!”

On each cruise, guests enjoy intimate times of relationship building with the artists, chapel and testimony services, The “Not-So-Newlywed” Game featuring artists and their spouses, Hymn Sings, Sunday Morning Church services and of course, nightly concerts.

Although this Caribbean Cruise itinerary is SOLD OUT, a waiting list has been opened and cruise bookings are now being accepted for the ALASKAN Gospel Music Celebration™ Cruise from July 14-21, 2013 embarking from Seattle, WA. The Alaskan cruise will feature The Booth Brothers, The Collingsworth Family, Legacy Five, Ken Davis, Liberty Quartet, TaRanda Greene, Freedom Singers and more.

Daywind Artists Travel To South America With Compassion International

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on February 16, 2011 – 12:50 pm -

Pictured L to R: Scott Fowler, Scott Howard, Zane King, Gerald Wolfe, Rodney Griffin & Chris Allman

Hendersonville, TN (February 16, 2011) –Daywind Records recording artists, Greater Vision and Legacy Five, recently traveled to Bogota, Columbia as part of a team from Compassion International.  While there, they witnessed first-hand the work that is being done through Compassion to reach the children of Columbia, as well as their families.

Over the course of four days, the groups were able to visit three of the Compassion projects in Columbia, which included nearly 1,000 school-aged children.  These young people of Bogota met the group of Americans with much excitement and celebration.  The artists not only spent time with the students at their school, but, also, were able to make home visits and meet the families of some of the children involved in the program.

Gerald Wolfe of Greater Vision shares, “I don’t think I have ever been more overwhelmed by an experience than I was by this trip.  It has given me an even greater desire to reach people with the Gospel.”

“I have been on three trips with Compassion and I never cease to be amazed at the real difference they are making in the lives of these kids,” expresses Scott Fowler of Legacy Five.  He continues, “Then these kids make a difference in the families at home.  Then these families make a difference in their communities.  It really is a remarkable thing to witness first hand.”

Zane King, Artist Relations Manager for Compassion International, comments on the impact artists have made through the organization, “The Southern Gospel music community has completely embraced this wonderful ministry by sponsoring thousands of children that are in need.  Along with many others, Greater Vision and Legacy Five have contributed their time and resources to our work all around the world.  More than 150,000 children gave their heart and life to Christ last year alone.  Clearly, the fact that Compassion lifts children, not only from physical poverty, but spiritual poverty, as well, compels our music community to engage in this Kingdom work.”
