10,000 items donated to establish research library

Hendersonville, TN – The Southern Gospel Music Association is pleased to announce the acquisition of a massive Gospel Music collection from Harold Timmons of Nashville, TN. The collection consists of nearly 10,000 items procured over his 65-year association with the genre. This important contribution will form the foundation of the SGMA Research Library soon to be established.

The Timmons collection contains 19th-century songbooks and original recordings dating back to the 1920’s and includes the best available copy of nearly 80% of releases by the major artists of the genre since its inception. In response to receiving this significant gift, SGMA President, Arthur Rice, stated: “We’ve always wanted a great library and a collection of artefacts. The SGMA looks forward to Harold’s collection, his knowledge, and that of his associates.  Not only will this be good for our organization, it will be good for artists and fans as well, and anyone wanting to research anything related to Southern Gospel Music. We look forward to this new endeavor.”

Mr. Timmons commented, “I wanted the collection to be displayed, and available for research and for me to be able to continue to be involved with this work as long as physically able.” He continues, “The SGMA now has the possibility of developing a comprehensive historical online database. My long-term goal is that a song may be researched as a recording, video, or printed music, and every reference contained within the library will be displayed.  A large percentage of the materials are already cataloged, and I’m encouraged to know that effort will continue through the new SGMA Research Library.”

Pray for Lou Wills Hildreth and family

Howard and Lou Hildreth

Howard and Lou Hildreth

We at SGNScoops are saddened to hear of the passing of Howard Hildreth, loving husband of Lou Wills Hildreth. Among many other achievements in Gospel music, Ms. Lou was a writer for SGNScoops for many years. Many of us treasure her friendship and grieve with her and her family in their loss.

Howard Elton Hildreth, Jr., passed away on December 26. He and his beloved Lou had been married for 72 years. Howard also leaves behind their son, David, daughter, Kathryn, and four grandchildren.

The celebration of life service for Howard will be held on January 5, 2019, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Moore Bowen Road Funeral Home, located at 4216 South Bowen Road, Arlington, Texas, 76016

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that a donation be made in Howard’s name to the SGMA Hall of Fame, in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

Address for the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame:
P.O. Box 6729
Sevierville, Tenn.

For more on Howard and Lou Hildreth, visit louhildreth.com

In the August, 2018, issue of SGNScoops, Lou Hildreth wrote another Live, Love and Legends column. We thought we would reprint it here:

It is always an honor to be included in this excellent magazine. It has been awhile since I have contributed an article, but be assured my desire remains the same as before – to share blessings and honor our heavenly Father.

Howard and I are living comfortably in a Senior Retirement Center in Houston, Texas. We are thankful that our daughter Kathryn and our son David live nearby. We have four grandchildren who visit us often. Yes, we are blessed!  

One of my favorite bible verses is 2 Timothy 1:7,  “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.” The other scripture is Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine that others will see your good works and glorify God.” And we know without a doubt, our salvation comes by our trust in Jesus Christ and the cross, not of works, lest we boast.

Dear readers, let me share a wonderful event that brought so much joy to this old heart. My brother, Bob Wills, carries on the Singing Wills Family legacy. He hosts a gospel music event every Friday night at Dove Creek Café in Roanoke, Texas, serving the Fort Worth-Dallas areas.  

On June 22nd, a dear friend – Dr. Eddie Reynolds, Emmanuel Baptist University of N.C. – came to Dove Creek and presented Bob Wills, Curtis Elkins, Regina Huckaba, and me with beautifully framed “Honorary Doctor of Music” certificates. Mary Fay Jackson was there with her video camera to record this for the Jones Family Network.   

This was such a great honor and I loved sharing it with my precious family and friends.  My fabulous daughter Kathryn drove us to Ft. Worth and we had so much fun!

Thank you to my dear friends Lorraine Walker and Rob Patz for the opportunity to “let my light shine!”

All of us at SGNScoops extend our love and prayers to Lou and all of the family and friends of Howard Hildreth.

Southern Gospel Music Association Celebrates with Tracy Stuffle for 30 Years with The Perrys

Written by Staff on October 31, 2015 – 5:50 am -

Perrys

Perrys

Pigeon Forge, TN  (October 29, 2015) – The Southern Gospel Music Association (SGMA) celebrated today with The Perrys as Tracy Stuffle marked 30 years as the groups award winning bass singer.

 

On behalf of the SGMA, Arthur Rice, president, congratulated Tracy Stuffle at a presentation at the Pines Theater at Dollywood.  Rice also read a proclamation from the Tennessee State Senate that declared Tracy Stuffle as having a genuine heart for the people.  The proclamation further stated “it is fitting that the members of this legislative body should honor those artists who, use their extraordinary talents, serve God with dedication, vigor, and enthusiasm and continue to bring renown to the State of Tennessee”.

 

Rick Francis with Singing News magazine presented a plaque on behalf of the publication in conjunction with StowTown Records to commemorate the day.

The Perrys are artists recording under StowTown Records.

 

The Perrys

The Perrys

Many of the Perrys fellow artists joined the tribute via video messages.  Making a special appearance, joining the Perrys on stage was Judy Hess, Joyce Sanders and Jonathan Martin of the Martins.  Together, the sibling group surrounded Tracy and sang an a cappella hymn.

 

In true to Tracy Stuffle style, the celebration was topped off with Tracy singing, “Time Has Made a Change”.  The song is a solo from the new album, “Sing”.

 

While 30 years is significant, this one for Tracy Stuffle is even more important.  Following the enormous struggles that Tracy has overcome after a life altering series of debilitating strokes and other major medical complications, he is on stage smiling and singing to everyone’s delight.

 

Having survived the biggest trial of their lives, the family stands together both in life and on stage along with son Jared Stuffle at bass, Andrew Goldman at lead and Troy Peach singing baritone.  The Perrys have a renewed passion for encouraging others for Christ.

 

The release of their newest project from StowTown Records, “Sing” features songs that remind that God is there in the “Unexpected Storm”.  The first single “Keep On” is already impacting fans and friends alike with the message that no matter how bad your situation we must “Keep On” with resilience and steadfastness.  With the brilliance of the Perrys producer, Wayne Haun, fans should soon be acquainted with the entire album.

 

perrys“Go God, go!” has been Libbi Perry Stuffle’s mantra since that terrifying January night in 2013 when Tracy suffered the first stroke while driving.  “Countless nights many have prayed over Tracy, this celebration is for all Perrys fans!” said Libbi.

 

“It seemed appropriate that this date fell during the Gospel and Harvest Celebration at this renowned theme park”, remarked Troy Peach.  “We are thrilled that the SGMA shared this day with The Perrys and recognize Tracy’s contribution to the world of Southern Gospel Music.”  Peach continued.

 

Tracy Stuffle is husband to original Perrys member, Libbi Perry Stuffle and father of Jared Stuffle.

 

Established in 1994, the Southern Gospel Music Association (SGMA) is a professional preservation association of artists, songwriters, industry workers and fans founded to preserve, protect and promote Southern Gospel Music, its history and heritage.

 

The SGMA operates the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., which welcomes more than one million visitors annually to read and observe displays and memorabilia from a century of gospel music.  Thousands of items from some of the greatest singers, writers and musicians are displayed.  The facility includes a gift shop that carries one of the country’s largest Southern gospel music selections.  The SGMA also specializes in vintage and difficult-to-find Southern gospel music products.
