The Old Paths illustrate What Love Does on upcoming album

The Old Paths illustrate What Love Does on upcoming albumArden, North Carolina (April 14, 2020) — In the last year, The Old Paths (website HERE) returned to their ministry with a renewed passion and dedication, released two albums and had a No. 1 song with “Come Sunday Morning.” Now, they’re continuing to spread the word of God with their new album, What Love Does, now available for pre-order ahead of its June 5 release.
Each song captures the many ways God’s boundless love blesses each person, each day. What Love Does begins with “This Is Amazing Grace,” telling of all that God has done so that we may live with love and grace. It’s followed by the first single, “I Got The Grace, He Gets The Glory,” a high-energy and upbeat song describing how God is always a solid foundation to stand on, despite sins and trials.

The Old Paths“When I heard this song, I couldn’t help but think that this is the theme for life as a believer,” says bass singer Daniel Ashmore who is featured on this song. “I can’t take credit for something I didn’t do and something I didn’t earn, therefore I get the grace and He gets the glory! That’s a message we want to share and this song sums it up perfectly.”

You Can’t Get Away From God,” written by Kenna Turner West, Sue C. Smith and Brian White and featuring Doug Roark, inspired the album’s title. Each verse tells vignettes of how people in tough places don’t think they’ll find relief, yet God is always there for comfort.

The powerful “Pray While You Wait” reminds that God’s timing is always perfect. When life feels impossible, know God will come through and you can always pray while you wait.

Bread,” another upbeat song, illustrates how God can accomplish the impossible through the story of the loaves and fishes, while the instrumental “How Great Is Our God” allows listeners to feel the music, and pause to appreciate it.

Look At All I Lost” and the final song “Salvation’s Song” talk about no longer being lost after finding Christ, and being freed from guilt, shame and the weight of life. With powerful and moving vocals, these songs capture the theme of the album’s title — God’s love is capable of amazing things.

“We are so excited about this new album. The title What Love Does is really the theme of the album, reflected in the song selection. We feel this is the best album we’ve done that really showcases our new sound with our current lineup,” says Ashmore. “Through our many failures and different circumstances in life, God exemplifies His love for us in His endless pursuit to save and change us. God is never late, and is always working all things for our good and His glory, because that’s what love does.”

The Old PathsAbout The Old Paths
In 2003, The Old Paths began its ministry taking the group’s name from Jeremiah 6:16 which says, “Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for The Old Paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” With this vision in mind and a heart for ministry, founding members Douglas Roark and Tim Rackley started The Old Paths as a trio. The group morphed into a quartet shortly after. They signed with Crossroads Music’s Sonlite Records in 2012. Their album Right Now was a breakout project for them producing two #1 hits, “Battlestand” and “God’s Great,” within a six-month span. In 2013, the group was named Favorite New Quartet in the Singing News Fan Awards, and songs like “Love Them to Jesus” and “Ordinary People” also quickly became fan favorites. The quartet made the decision in 2015 to come off the road for a while due to family circumstances. While the decision was not easy, they left the door open for a possible return to gospel music and touring. When God opened that door for them in 2017, they were ready to walk through it. With a renewed passion for ministry, The Old Paths took the stage again at the Memphis Quartet Show in June 2017. The group now consists of founding members Tim Rackley and Douglas Roark, longtime bass singer Daniel Ashmore and tenor Steve Ladd. Tim, Doug and Daniel found the right blend with Steve to be able to come together as The Old Paths again. The goal of the group has stayed the same after all these years to see people come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and to encourage fellow believers. They are thankful that God gave them the chance to return to the platform again to sing and encourage. They could not be more excited about this new stage of their ministry and to see what God has for the group in the future.

Arden, North Carolina (July 13, 2018) – The Jordan Family Band’s album Reach and Sunday Drive’s album A Million Miles are now available from Crossroads.

The Jordan Family Band hopes to spread God’s word far and wide with Reach from Skyland Records. With reminders to always live as an example of Christ, it sends a powerful message of what can be accomplished with a little faith in even the darkest of times.

“When we began the groundwork for this new record, we carefully chose songs we felt were divinely given to us, whether it by our pen or through friends of our ministry. We had no selfish endeavors! We wanted to not only ‘Reach’ the world and those who feel like their situation is helpless, but also the tired and discouraged Christian who is on the brink of giving up!” says Josh Jordan of the Jordan Family Band. “It’s not just an album title, ‘Reach’ is our new vision — He reached for us in our most desperate state and delivered us, and He will do the same for you.”

With energetic vocals and vivid, narrative lyrics, the Jordan Family Band hopes to “Reach” listeners from all walks of life and

spread the gospel. Listen to Reach HERE.

Sunday Drive’s A Million Miles from Sonlite Records carries a resounding message that God is never too far away with songs about strong belief, grateful praise and reliance on faith. With a classic country style and upbeat lyrics, the gospel group reminds listeners that following Christ leads to a joyful life, despite the ups and downs we all face.
“We are so excited about our new recording A Million Miles. We reached out of our songwriting box and asked some of the greatest writers in Gospel music for some songs and did they come through,” says Jeff Treece. “The title cut ‘A Million Miles’ is written by our good friend, Mark Bishop. Our first single ‘Living In The Middle Of His Will’ is written by Dianne Wilkinson and Lee Black. It also includes original, easy listening, classic and comedy songs. Come take a trip you will never forget — ‘A Million Miles’ by Sunday Drive.”

Arden, NC. (December 5, 2016) – Sonlite Records recording artist 11th Hour has really been on a roll in 2016! They had their first-ever #1 song with “Jesus Is in The House” in January 2016, which was quickly followed by a second #1 in June titled “Mountain Moving Faith.” The talented trio didn’t stop there, though. November 2016 saw 11th Hour blessed with a third-in-a-row #1, the up-tempo call-to-service “Can You Burn!” While returning to Nashville TN from a recent tour, Amber, Jaquita, and Grant stopped by the offices of Crossroads Entertainment & Marketing in Arden, NC to celebrate their latest chart-topper; also to enjoy some time talking about their new DVD/CD releasing January 2017 Burnin’ It Up LIVE! The coming year is certainly shaping up to be another busy one for the popular and highly-regarded trio!

11th Hour and Crossroads Entertainment extends our deep appreciation to the esteemed radio friends whose dedication and support take the music and message across the world.
