The 3 Heath Brothers encourage giving burdens to Jesus with new single

Written by Staff on August 10, 2020 – 7:48 am -

3 Heath BrothersArden, North Carolina (August 6, 2020) — As part of the next generation of gospel music artists, the 3 Heath Brothers (website HERE) have quickly captured attention with their powerful voices and unmistakable calling to spread God’s word. The trio records music they believe in, with words they hope others carry through daily life, giving encouragement and hope.

With their latest single, the timely “Give It To Jesus,” the 3 Heath Brothers continue this mission, reminding listeners that when life is tough, they can give all their burdens and chaos to Jesus.

Nicholas Heath, who wrote the song, says at the time, he didn’t realize how relevant it would become. “It is a song that has almost become our theme song during this time when there are so many questions and not many answers,” says Nicholas. “No matter what any of us are going through or dealing with and no matter how we’ve been hurt or our questions…the safest and best thing we can always do is give it to Jesus.”

The moving song is the latest single from the trio’s Horizon Records debut album Who We Are, which showcases the brothers’ creative arrangements, song choice and production, making an impressive statement about their music, mission and beliefs.

Stream “Give It To Jesus” HERE.

About 3 Heath Brothers
The 3 Heath Brothers are teenagers, Nicholas, Clayton, & Christian Heath from Thomasville, NC. They have been singing together as long as they can remember. Their mom taught them to sing parts from a very early age and their dad is the Senior Pastor at Faith Community Chapel in Thomasville, NC.

When these young guys get up to sing, people are consistently shocked by their tight harmony, powerful vocals, and a cappella arrangements. In the summer of 2018, they won the Grand Champion Trophy at the NC State Annual Singing Convention. They recently performed at Dollywood, Billy Graham Training Center at the Cove, and are Main Stage artists at Singing in the Sun 2019 and the Gatlinburg Gathering 2019.

Audiences won’t want to miss their young energy and passion for God. They love God and their goal is to promote Christ and demonstrate that you are never too young to give all you have to God.

SOUTHERN GOSPEL MUSIC ASSOCIATION HALL OF FAME MEMBER, ED O’NEAL RELEASES MEMOIR

Written by Staff on August 6, 2020 – 9:41 am -

Ed O'NealOne Old Man Can’t Be All That Bad: Legendary Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame Member, Ed O’Neal, Releases Memoir
Kinston, NC – Many talented vocalists and musicians step onto concert stages across the country year after year; however, only the faithful and dedicated overcome the pressures of life on the road. Ed O’Neal, whose name has been synonymous with Gospel Music for 60 years, can certainly be labeled as one of the faithful and dedicated.

 

O’Neal joined The Dixie Melody Boys in early 1960s and became owner and manager of the quartet a few years later. Over the years, O’Neal and The Dixie Melody Boys, have enjoyed tremendous success. In 2000, O’Neal was named recipient of the Marvin Norcross Award, the highest honor presented at The Singing News Fan Awards Ceremony each year. Additionally, in 2004 he was inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame.

 

While success has abounded, adversities have also been encountered. In fact, over the past six decades O’Neal has seen over 90 personnel changes. “That has to be a record in this business,” he says with a chuckle. Yet with all the changes, the Dixie Melody Boys and Ed O’Neal have stood the test of time. O’Neal, with the assistance of writer David Bruce Murray, chronicles those ups and downs in a new memoir, One Old Man Can’t Be All That Bad.
Ed O’Neal with co-author David Bruce Murray

Ed O’Neal with co-author David Bruce Murray

Within the pages of One Old Man Can’t Be All That Bad, O’Neal shares stories from his youth, growing up in Raleigh, NC, as well as how he met the love of his life, Mama Joy, as she was affectionately known to the many alumni of Ed O’Neal University – the group of men who at one time were members of The Dixie Melody Boys. The 84-year old also shares all about the trendsetting DMB Band, who made waves in the mid-80s with their progressive musical stylings, as well as his various business ventures, and the many hijinks he has experienced with the cast of characters he has traveled with during his career.

Murray, O’Neal’s co-author, is the owner of the industry websites SGHistory.com and MusicScribe.com and has been writing about Southern Gospel music in various forms for more than 25 years. “I had a blast helping Ed put his amazing life story into book form,” Murray states. “As we were working together, we laughed a lot and also shed a few tears as I am sure many of the readers will as they read about Ed’s life filled with music, faith, family and laughter. No one can tell a story quite like Ed O’Neal.”
Ed O’Neal’s love for his family, the people he has met through Gospel music, his desire to always present quality music, united with his desire to never compromise his responsibility to spread the Gospel are most evident within the pages of this historical account. This biography conveys the story of a man who has enjoyed blessing after blessing, while remaining dedicated and faithful to his music, his family and his Father.
One Old Man Can’t Be All That Bad is available in paperback and Kindle version on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/One-Old-Man-Cant-That-ebook/dp/B08DL19MT6. The book, as well as an accompanying CD, which contains many classics recorded by O’Neal and The Dixie Melody Boys, is available at www.dixiemelodyboys.com.

The Siler Family Wins Pursuit 2020

Written by Staff on August 5, 2020 – 12:35 pm -

The Siler Family Wins Pursuit 2020Nashville, Tenn. (August 4th, 2020) –In a live event held on Facebook, Pursuit announced the winner of this year’s talent search.  After multiple rounds of submissions and voting, The Siler Family brought home the top prize in the competition.

 

Based out of Virginia, Toby and Christi enjoyed long history within Gospel Music before adding their gifted twins, Jewel and Jarrod to form a family group. The family won over fans with their performances of ‘I Choose To Be A Christian’ (made popular by The Erwins), as well as an original entitled ‘The Comeback,’ penned by Joseph Habedank, Jason Cox & Kenna Turner West.

 

As the winner of the competition, The Siler Family will receive a 6 song EP, courtesy of Main Street Music & Entertainment, as well as a marketing and radio package to promote its release. Singing News has also provided the group with a performance on their Harvest Festival stage at Dollywood, in addition to social media interviews and a performance at the Singing News Café.

 

Rounding out the top 5 finalists for this year’s talent search were The Crutchfield Family, Shannon Tantlinger, Elizabeth Clary and Miriam Schell.

 

“We were impressed by the vast amount of talent we saw with the video submissions, and any one of the finalists could have won the entire competition,” shares Q Phillips of Main Street Music & Entertainment. “Each group was very unique and brought something different to the table. I believe we will be hearing more from each of these groups, and they have very bright futures ahead!”

 

With the current restrictions due to COVID-19, the originally planned week-long intensive and talent competition was forced to improvise and change to an online format.  Participants submitted music videos for consideration, upon which fans were encouraged to cast their vote. After advancing to the Top 5, the finalists benefited from critiques and advice from the guest panel of artist and industry judges to further advance their music.

NEWS RELEASE: IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES POSTPONEMENT OF SWGMFJohnson City, TN – In compliance with local and state mandates and recommendations limiting public gatherings due to COVID-19, IMC Concerts has announced plans to postpone the 2021 Southwest Gospel Music Festival, originally scheduled for January 11-13 in Phoenix, AZ.
“We are deeply saddened by having to postpone the SWGMF until 2022,” IMC President, Landon Beene states. “It was a very difficult decision, but our team has been closely following updates by the CDC, as well as the local officials in the greater Phoenix area, and we felt this was the best decision to make at this time.”
HoppersAccording to Beene, the postponement was made in the best interest of the event attendees, as well as the artists featured at the event.
“The health and well-being of our patrons is of the utmost importance. At this time, unfortunately, we are not able to provide a definite date as to when to expect things to be back to normal, which puts us in a challenging position.”

Although a definite date is not being announced at this time, the new date is tentatively set for January 13-15, 2022.

“This is the date we are hoping to be able to make happen,” Beene continues, “and we plan to offer the same wonderful line-up of artists that we had scheduled for the 2021 event.”
Beene also states that all ticket holders from the 2020 event will be contacted directly by IMC representatives and will have the first option to renew their same seats once the event goes on sale in the summer of 2021.
“Unfortunately, the capacity restrictions in place make it impossible for us to plan, promote and host our event in January, 2021. With that said, we WILL RETURN, and we are already looking forward to this event in 2022. Our prayers are with the artists and the great fans of Gospel Music during these difficult and unprecedented times.”

CHAPEL VALLEY’S ORDAINED MOURNS LOSS OF MEMBER, GLENDA HASTY

Written by Staff on August 3, 2020 – 12:52 pm -

CHAPEL VALLEY’S ORDAINED MOURNS LOSS OF MEMBER, GLENDA HASTY

Ordained

Sharps Chapel, Tennessee – The Chapel Valley family extends its deepest condolences to the family members of Ordained and the family of Glenda Hasty. Glenda went to be with Jesus on Sunday afternoon, August 2, 2020 at 3:45pm.

ORDAINED MEMBER, GLENDA HASTY

Glenda Hasty

Glenda and her husband, Shelby Hasty, traveled the United States as The Hastys for twenty-five years. Their daughters, Stacy Wilson and Catrina Headrick, traveled and sang with them. After being off the road due to health reasons, Glenda joined her daughter, Catrina Headrick and son-in-law, Greg Headrick in 2016 to sing with the group known as Ordained.

Shane Roark shared, “Our hearts are deeply saddened by the loss of such a precious lady. Glenda Hasty was a gifted vocalist with a heart that radiated her love for the Lord. Our thoughts and prayers are with Greg and Catrina as they carry out the ministry of Ordained and keep singing, just as Glenda would have encouraged them to.”

We are thankful to know we will be reunited in heaven with so many who are already with Jesus. Philippians 1:21 says, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” Though we grieve the loss of precious saints, we celebrate the memories we have. Heaven just gets sweeter every day!

You can visit Ordained on Facebook to let them know you’re praying for them:  https://www.facebook.com/ordainedministries/

Erwins struck by COVID-19

Written by Staff on July 28, 2020 – 12:42 pm -

Erwins

Erwins

The wonderful Erwin family who most of you have heard on the radio, have been hit by the corona virus.

Yesterday, Tiffany Erwin posted on Facebook:

I am absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the love, support and MANY PRAYERS that have been spoken for our family. My mom tested positive on Tuesday for COVID, then Kris went on Tuesday and tested negative. So, Dennis and Katie went Tuesday night and tested positive. All had symptoms, so they said to assume Kris has a false negative. Everyone was doing ok, till yesterday. It started with Kris waking up with fever and trouble breathing. Once his “episodes” were over mom called my sister in her room later with the same thing going on. She probably should have gone to the hospital, but doesn’t want to be alone (and I understand that). However, if she has to, we will have to do it. For now, we made it through the night. All seems quiet for now. My sister is taking care of us all, as I can’t leave my room (which is an excruciating, helpless feeling), and is exhausted. She got tested on Saturday, but we haven’t heard anything yet. Just as you think of it, pray for our family and so many others that are fighting this CRAZY VIRUS!! It IS REAL!! If you got a light case, THANK GOD…it’s not all that way!! Masks are a joke till it hits your family and loved ones…then it changes your mind. Thank you for the prayers!! Trust me, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands to pray for you too. God will get us through this according to His Perfect Will!! Love you all!!

Dennis and Tiffany Erwin, parents of the singing siblings, the Erwins

Earlier today,Tiffany posted an update:

Hey everyone!! Just an update…Everything is quiet right now around here…guess that’s a good thing!!?? For those that have sent advice and information…y’all are AWESOME!! Trust me, we’ve seen and heard it all. WE are doing the vitamin regimen (zinc, Calcium & B3, etc) and have for a while. 3 of the 4 have been given the Hydroxychloriquin (sp?) and z-pak. We are diffusing oils, drinking lemon, ginger, turmeric, honey, etc….trying to do it all, in hopes that something will work and keep things calm around here. Sunday was rough, yesterday was calm (not well, but calm)…today…ONLY GOD KNOWS!! This is truly a “roller coaster” ride. Up one day and down the next. (sometimes it’s literally up one hour & down the next)! I truly believe, the only thing we know is that, WE DON’T KNOW! We are trusting the LORD and in the prayers of HIS PEOPLE!! (SIDE NOTE: Now, if you talk to Dennis, he says everyone is fine…and I truly love that man…but he literally travels from the room he’s sleeping in, to the office, and is pretty much taking care of himself. He has had it very mild, so far, yet sleeps all but about 6-7 hours a day…so he’s far from “normal”. Plus he’s not going CRAZY to get out of the house, and he has NOT stayed in one day since this stuff hit months ago…so he’s far from “normal”. He’s definitely a NOMAD…but this virus has stopped that pretty abruptly.)
I’m thanking God today for another day to live for HIM, a family that is still around me (though I can’t see them) and for a host of friends that care!!! WOW…we are BLESSED beyond what we deserve!! I pray you all stay safe and take this virus seriously!! Don’t buy in to the hysteria…but use your BRAINS!! I fully realize our FAITH & TRUST is in the LORD; however, that SAME GOD gave you a BRAIN!!! USE IT!! Love y’all!!

Please pray for all of the Erwins.

Youth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell Family

Youth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell FamilyYouth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell Family By Lyndsey Chandler

 

This month’s featured artist is Autumn Isbell from Savannah, Tennessee, which is two hours southwest of Nashville. 

 

Youth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell FamilyAutumn is 17 and will be 18 in October. She has one younger brother, who is 16 years old. At the age of five, Autumn recorded her first solo album. 

 

She plays piano, guitar, mandolin, and ukulele, and she has been traveling and singing full-time with her family, the Isbell Family, for seven years. She sings mostly soprano for the group.

 

The talented young lady loves to decorate and says that she is also pretty good at ping pong. 

 

Youth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell FamilyTwo of her biggest inspirations in Southern gospel are the Collingsworth Family and 11th Hour. 

 

When asked what she would be doing if she was not singing, Autumn says, “Although it is very hard to imagine myself doing anything outside of music, I would probably consider pursuing a career in counseling.”

 

When she graduates from high school this year, she will plan on taking online college classes.

 

A day off of the road for Autumn normally consists of catching up on school, cleaning the house and maybe a shopping trip.

 

Youth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell FamilyAlso, embarking on a missions trip someday is definitely on her bucket list. 

 

When asked what her funniest moment on stage has been, Autumn shared this … “At this particular concert, I had decided to wear a long skirt and high heels. As I was stepping up to sing, my skirt got caught underneath my heel, and I couldn’t move forward. So, I had to hurry and figure out a way to get my skirt out from under my heel without being too noticeable.”

 

Autumn’s parents had a trio with one of her mom’s friends for nine years. During that time, her parents were teaching her brother and herself to sing parts, so when her mom’s friend got married, Autumn and her brother stepped in. It has been that way ever since. 

 

The family performs approximately 250 concerts a year. 

 

“I know this is what God has called my family and I to do, and when someone is deeply touched by our songs, or even comes to know Christ through our music, it confirms that I am right where I’m supposed to be and doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing,” Autumn explains. 

 

Youth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell FamilyMiss Isbell concludes with a word to her peers: “God made you who you are, and He has a beautiful and unique plan for your life. Be yourself and be confident, just as the Lord intended.”
