(Nashville, TN)… StowTown Records made a big presence on the big stage in a big way over the weekend in “The Music City.”
The award-winning Southern Gospel quartet, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, took the stage at the world famous Grand Ole Opry. EHSS performed some of its fan-favorites during two shows Saturday evening alongside longtime Country Music legends, Trace Adkins and Ricky Skaggs.
“Our time at the Opry was filled with absolute love!” said Ernie Haase. “The crowd gave us an enormous standing ovation and loved the presentation of Gospel Music, and, to that, we are very humbled and grateful.”
The popular quartet performed many songs from its chart-topping brand new StowTown project, The Favorite Hymns of Fanny Crosby. Well-known hymns like “Jesus Keep Me Near The Cross”, “Blessed Assurance”, “Pass Me Not – O Gentle Savior” and “Tell Me The Story Of Jesus” are just a few highlighted selections on the album.
Then, on Sunday, fast-rising gospel family group, The Erwins, had the honor of performing our National Anthem at Nissan Stadium just prior to the Tennessee Titans’ win over the visiting Cleveland Browns in the National Football League.
The Erwin family has a long-standing friendship with Titans President/CEO Steve Underwood and his family. The Underwoods have been Southern Gospel music fans for many years.
After sending in a video to the Titans for consideration, The Erwins received the invitation call in July to sing at one of the team’s home games this season. Singing in front of over 60,000 fans marked the largest ever National Anthem performance for the family quartet.
“We were so honored to be invited to sing the National Anthem in Nashville where there are so many other wonderful singers! We will never forget this experience or this day as long as we live,” said group emcee and lead singer Keith Erwin. “The Titan fans made us feel right at home and we were BLOWN AWAY by their kind reception and remarks!”
It continued what has been a whirlwind month of popularity for The Erwins following their recently released brand new StowTown album, Only Faith Can See, which has rapidly soared up the charts.
The Favorite Hymns of Fanny Crosby and Only Faith Can See are both available worldwide through Provident-Sony distribution.
