A Christmas to Remember

A Christmas to Remember

GALLATIN, TENN . — The public is invited to start off the holiday season with “A Christmas to Remember,” a dinner and music event featuring some of today’s top names in gospel music performing Christmas music from the past to the present. The event will be held at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 2 at Gallatin City Hall in downtown Gallatin, Tenn.

Tickets are $35 per person; businesses, churches, organizations or individuals may sponsor a table for six for $200. Seating is limited to 200, and reservations are requested by Nov. 21 due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Proceeds from the dinner and music event benefit The Veranda, congregational respite program supported by Impact Fellowship Church. An outreach ofthe church’s ministry, The Veranda helps meet the needs of senior adults and their families who are affected by Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia and other issues of the aging process. Activities are provided four hours a day,
three days a week at the church to allow families much-needed respite time to take care of other family needs.
The evening’s line-up includes Tribute Quartet, The Talleys, The Littles and Mary Anne Oglesby. A special highlight of the evening will be The Talleys’ performance of their chart-climbing song, “Hidden Heroes,” which pays tribute to those who care for the needs of others.
“‘Hidden Heroes’ is a fitting connection, especially during
this holiday season, to honor those who are giving an ultimate gift themselves by serving others,” said Debra Talley, who also serves as a member of the Veranda Board of Directors. “We are looking forward to this joyous night of celebrating the holidays while also helping generate awareness for The Veranda and its service to the community.”
This is the third year Tribute Quartet has participated in this event for The Veranda. Gary Casto, the quartet’s manager, also serves as a member of The Veranda’s Board of Directors. “The Veranda is a special place to us, and the guys and I are thrilled to part of such a wonderful ministry,” Casto said. “We’ve had such a great time at the previous benefits, and we are excited about sharing music from our brand new Christmas project with everyone.”
“This will be a wonderful evening of festive music to celebrate the start of the Christmas season,” Mary Anne Oglesby, director of The Veranda, said. “It will be a great night for families, young and old alike, to get together and usher in the holiday season and celebrate Christ, the true reason for the season. Last year’s event sold out, and we expect another sell-out again this year.”
For more information about the event or to make reservations, contact The Veranda staff

Troy Peach Returns To The Perrys

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on October 26, 2014 – 10:34 pm -

Troy Peach

Troy Peach

“Like a son coming home,” is how Libbi Perry Stuffle makes the announcement describing the return of Troy Peach to the Perrys, a position he last held four years ago.  Troy replaces the departing Bryan Walker, whose resignation was announced two weeks ago.  Troy comes to the group having most recently toured with the Bowling Family.

Troy says, “I’m thrilled to be back with the Perrys!  Libbi and Tracy are literally like family.  We live five minutes from each other.  Jared is like a little brother.  Andrew is among the best talents in our industry.   And who sings better songs than the Perrys?  After four years, it feels good to be back with Tracy and Libbi.  It is my goal to, of course, be that vocal part they need, but also to assist Libbi in all aspects of the group’s ministry.  I do believe in timing and seasons for everything, and I believe that this is the right time to step back on the Perrys bus and do what I can to help the group continue to grow and prosper.”

The transition to the Perrys will take place in the next two weeks.  The Perrys thank everyone for their continued prayers and support during this time.

Williamsons Release New Album – Tell Somebody

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on October 24, 2014 – 10:41 pm -

williamsons

williamsons

Weleetka, OK (October 24, 2014) Talented mixed quartet, The Williamsons, have just released another great album titled Tell Somebody. The album consists of material that is written by some of the most talented songwriters available today, including four songs penned by Lisa Williamson, group member and featured soloist on many of the songs. Closing the CD out is a great classic written by Mosie Lister.
To make a great album you must have great songs and that task wasn’t taken lightly. No less than 200 songs were listened to in the deciding process. Choosing 50 would have been difficult, but narrowing it down to eleven was nearly impossible.

The project was produced by award winning producer, Donna King, known for stretching artists and pulling things out of them they didn’t think possible. Donna was present in every step of the process down to the final mix. She was going for the best ever from the Williamsons. One thing about making a great record, besides great songs and well-recorded vocals, is making the little details matter too, from every background vocal, to every note played, and every overdub, and all the mix sounds, the Williamsons covered all the bases to produce the best album of their career.

Donna King commented “Every album I produce is as important to me as my own (if not more important).  To have the opportunity to produce music that affects God’s kingdom, because of the ministry that will come from the songs, is not something I take lightly.  Working with the Williamsons was an amazing experience.  They were FULLY engaged and willing to go places no man “or woman” had gone before  (as far as things they had done in the past).  They understood the importance of great songs and they worked with me diligently on those choices.  They gave me 110% from day one (and there were many days).  That is a producer’s dream.  They are so talented, but they are also pliable and that is a GREAT attribute to ending up with a superb album.  And, most importantly, their hearts are in this for ALL the right reasons!  I LOVE this group and I am SO excited about this album and honored to have been blessed to produce it.”

Donnie Williamson. Baritone singer and group manager stated “I believe this is the most powerful music we have ever recorded. The music is filled with the message of Christ that will uplift those who listen and touch them no matter where they are in life.”

Lisa Williamson also said “Some of the best songwriters in Gospel Music are represented on this project and I am honored to have four of my songs included.”

The first song released to radio is “It Was The Word” written by Lisa, and it is already being accepted well by DJs across the country.

Songs include:
It Was The Word
That’s What I’m Talking About
All Our Hope
Shout
Monday
He Lived To Tell It
No Umbrellas
I Laid It All Down
Healing For The Hurting
I’ve Got To Tell Somebody
While the Ages Roll
