Merry Christmas from SGN Scoops

Written by scoopsnews on December 25, 2016 – 4:26 am -

Luke 2:6-7King James Version (KJV)

6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

From our Scoops Family to yours:

Merry Christmas to you all and remember…..Jesus is the Reason for the Season. We love and appreciate our readers and all the folks that share the same love for this “great gospel music.”  Enjoy your day with family and friends. Make Memories and experience the true Spirit of Christmas.

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Written by Staff on May 18, 2015 – 12:08 pm -

Troy Burns Family

Troy Burns Family

SGN Scoops welcomes the Troy Burns Family to this edition of Fast Five. We hope you will enjoy getting reacquainted with the lead singer of The Inspirations, and meeting the rest of this fine group.

Troy shared the biography of the group, which we have excerpted for you:

imageTroy Burns is a founding member and lead singer of The Inspirations for 30 years and is the current lead singer for Archie Watkins and Smoky Mountain Reunion, and The Old Inspirations. When not on the road with Smoky Mountain Reunion, Troy and his family do concerts at churches and other venues. Close family harmony and loving Jesus is what the Troy Burns Family is all about.
Troy has recorded over 700 songs in his career, “Jesus Is Coming Soon,” “Touring That City,” “Is That Footsteps,” and many other great Southern Gospel songs. Troy has performed over 6,000 concerts, won numerous awards and currently sings weekly on Daystar TV worldwide. Tammy has had formal training as a singer and sang for The Sound Of Youth from Robbinsville, North Carolina. Tammy’s voice has been compared to Patsy Cline and Barbara Streisand. The newest member of the Troy Burns Family is Roland Kesterson, from Crossville, Tennessee. He sang with his family growing up and then sang for a Bluegrass group called Set Apart for seven years. Roland’s smooth harmonies form a third part for Troy Burns Family that is unparalleled in Southern Gospel Music.
Latest Project: It’s Only Goodnight
Radio Release: “It’s Only Goodnight”
