The Guardians are Ready for Revival

The Guardians are Ready for Revival

Nashville, TN StowTown Records artist The Guardians has released a brand new project today, their first as a quartet. Ready for Revival, a 12-song collection from this famed group is available at digital and retail outlets worldwide and is distributed exclusively by Sony/Provident.

“We feel a sense of urgency now more than ever to sound a call for revival in the church, this nation and the world,” states John Darin Rowsey. “From the first note of the project to the last, we wanted to create a spiritual and emotional journey that would touch the heart and soul of everyone who heard it. As the debut quartet project, we certainly wanted to make use of the talents of Pat Barker. The arrangements of Wayne Haun and the brilliant writing from some of the industry’s top writers have definitely accomplished that. There is an excitement in the songs on this project that has created a new zeal in all of us. We can’t wait to share the message in the songs!”

Several of the songs recorded were written specifically with their revival tour in mind as they travel with Revive America, led by Rev. Terry Toler. In true Guardians form, they treat this project like a member of the family, carefully paying attention to every detail.

Dean Hickman and The Guardians truly believe in the integrity of presentation,” said Wayne Haun, StowTown co-founder and producer. “They are genuine in their love for the Gospel message and their love for gospel music. How many tenor singers are still performing and traveling at age 70?! Dean is amazing, both on stage and off. There is no greater cheerleader for young people in our industry, and I am honored to have worked with him and The Guardians on Ready for Revival.”

NQC 2018: The Song Goes On!

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on October 1, 2018 – 8:50 am -

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn.  –  Over 40,000 people from all over the United States and all over the world – including Sri Lanka, the Netherlands, Ireland, Australia, Brazil and Canada – enjoyed the very best in gospel music at the 61st NQC, the National Quartet Convention.
Approximately 100 hours of music, inspiring messages, and moving testimonies filled the halls of the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN over the past week.
The final day and evening of NQC is always bittersweet – savoring the last moments but having to say goodbye to friends you may only see once a year.
This morning, the Hoppers led worship for chapel, followed by a moving message from Dr. Tim Hill. Always a highlight of NQC, Gerald Wolfe brought out the red back hymnal to lead the crowd in classic songs of the church at the Gospel Music Hymn Sing.
Next up, it was the Matinee Quartet Extravaganza – you just can’t beat that four-part harmony – with Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Kingdom Heirs, Mark Trammell Quartet, Tribute, Triumphant, and Second Half Quartet.
The evening concerts were hosted by Bill Bailey. Tonight’s performers were: Rochesters, Dixie Melody Boys, Childress Family, Erwins, Chandlers, Kingsmen, Roarks, Mylon Hayes Family, Mark Bishop, Browns, Greater Vision, Jonathan Wilburn, Rick Webb Family, Kingdom Heirs, Talleys, Second-Half Quartet, Jim Brady Trio, Tribute Quartet and the Whisnants.
There was a sweet spirit of prayer and a holy reverance throughout the performances tonight with many groups sharing songs and testimonies about the role of prayer in their lives.
There’s always been a strong tie of patriotism in Gospel music and tonight, the NQC paid honor to the USA with a special “Grand Finale” – I LOVE AMERICA – filled with patriotic songs. Special performances included: “God Bless America” by Melissa Brady, “God Bless The USA” by Joseph Habedank and the Erwins, as well as audience sing-alongs including “The National Anthem,” “You’re A Grand Ole Flag,” and more.
NQC 2019 will be held September 22, 2019 – September 28, 2019 at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN. Seats will go on sale October 15, 2018. Log onto www.NQConline.com for more information.
NQC – the National Quartet Convention – was founded in 1957 by gospel music legend and former backup vocalist for Elvis Presley, J.D. Sumner who co-produced the event with James Blackwood. The annual convention was moved in later years to Nashville, TN and then to Louisville, KY where it was held for 20 years.

Williamsons Appear at Beacon Park, Silver Dollar City and More

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on September 13, 2018 – 8:50 am -

Williamsons Appear at Beacon Park, Silver Dollar City and More

Williamsons Appear at Beacon Park, Silver Dollar City and More

Nashville, TN  The Williamsons have been part of some exciting events this summer! The Williamsons made a repeat appearance at the Choctaw Nation Labor Day Festival in Tuskahoma, Oklahoma. Thousands make their way each year to the Choctaw Nation’s capitol for the annual celebration. Many top artists from country and Christian music perform including the Kingsmen, Jason Crabb and Chris Tomlin. The Williamsons sang to a crowd of over 7,500.

The group also made their way to possibly the largest Gospel event in the country, the Southern Gospel Picnic at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. Over 70 groups appear each year during the twelve-day festival. The Williamsons have been part of the program for numerous years!

The Williamsons summer tour also included an appearance at the Oklahoma All-Night Gospel Singing at the Veterans Park in Konawa, Oklahoma. This is one of the longest running outdoor Gospel music events having been held each year for over 50 years!  “This is such a wonderful event. We are always honored to  be a part of it, “stated Donnie Williamson.

In June they made their second appearance at Beacon Park in Harrison, Ark. Over the last few years, Arvin Adams has turned this in to one of the finest events in the Midwest.

Later in August, the Williamsons were honored to be invited back for the second time to the Grape Festival in Tonitown, Arkansas. The festival has been running for over 120 years but only added Gospel music to the event in 2017.  It was so well received that The Williamsons were invited for a return appearance this year. Some 120,000 visitors make their way to Tontitown during the five-day event.

Summer has truly been a cross-country adventure for the Williamsons. In addition to these great events, the Williamsons have a kept a busy schedule with many church services and revivals.
