Harmony Road TV to Feature Broadcast Premiere of Back Home Video “Birmingham”

Also artist interview and music from Jay Parrack and Vocal Event, Jeff and Sheri Easter, LeFevre Quartet.

Signal Mountain, TN October 12, 2014   This week’s Harmony Road television program will feature the broadcast premiere of Back Home’s thought provoking video “Birmingham”.  The program will also air “Sometimes He Whispers”, a new video from Jay Parrack and Vocal Event as well as videos from the Lefevre Quartet and Jeff and Sheri Easter.  This episode includes an in depth interview with Back Home as they discuss the video and the story behind it.

“We appreciate artists who have the vision to produce videos that tell the story of the song. We have great examples on this episode and I know our audience will enjoy and be challenged and encouragedby them” said Roger Spears, Harmony Road producer. “This special episode was produced at the

Dixie Freeze Restaurant in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, one of the locations in the video and includes an interview with the Back Home as well as the actress portraying the main character of the story”, he concluded.

Written by Jennifer Layne and Mark Narmore, the idea for “Birmingham” came from a road experience when the group met a waitress in a restaurant who shared her own testimony of failure, rejection, and redemption. Jennifer shares, “We are so excited about this video. We know that this is not just a young lady’s story. People need to know that there are churches out there that are full of loving people who want to welcome them in. And, above all else, there’s a God who loves them no matter what they’ve done or where they’ve been. We all experience rejection from human beings but God will never turn His back on anyone.”

Gospel artists and church leaders have taken note of “Birmingham”. Jeff and Sheri Easter state “This video teaches us a lot about loving people who are hurting and not kicking them while they’re down. It is a beautiful representation of Christ’s love.” Karen Peck Gooch of Karen Peck and New River adds “This video is amazing and beautiful. It shows us how grace abounds and how true Christianity should be portrayed. May we all stop pointing fingers and start loving each other more?” Bishop Tim Hill said “Watching this video the first time brought tears to my eyes. The message of God’s forgiveness and redeeming love is unmistakable throughout. I wish everyone could see this and be touched by it as I have been.”

Now available to over 80 million homes nationwide, Harmony Road TV is hosted by Singing News and Solid Gospel Radio and Butler Music Group veteran Les Butler.

Information on Harmony Road, its affiliates and time slots can be found at www.harmonyroadtv.com. Viewers can also interact with the program on Facebook at Harmony Road TV and on twitter

New Jim Brady Trio and New Booth Brothers debut at Legacy Five’s New Year’s Eve Celebration

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on October 17, 2014 – 12:45 pm -

Jim Brady Trio

Jim Brady Trio

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 17, 2014) – The debut of the Jim Brady Trio and the Booth Brothers first concert with new group member Paul Lancaster will highlight Legacy Five’s New Year’s Eve Celebration, which will be held at Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Hotel.

Brady has spent the last 12 years as the baritone singer of the award-winning Booth Brothers trio, but he will now be singing with his wife Melissa and former Legacy Five pianist Tim Parton as the Jim Brady Trio debuts on Thursday morning, Jan. 1.

Paul Lancaster is joining the Booth Brothers, and he will make his debut with the group on Wednesday evening, Dec. 31. That will also be Brady’s last concert with the group.

“It’s extraordinarily rare that you get to witness this much Southern Gospel Music history in one place at one time, ”says Legacy Five group manager and lead singer Scott Fowler. “To see and hear the Booth Brothers for the last time with Jim Brady, and to hear the new Jim Brady Trio and to hear the new Booth Brothers lineup all at the same event is really exciting. What better way than to ring out the old year and sing in the new year … the end of a season and the start of a new one.”

There will be four sessions of this year’s New Year’s Eve Celebration event, beginning at 7 p.m. on Dec. 30 with a lineup that includes the Collingsworth Family, the Burchfield Brothers, Triumphant Quartet and Tim Lovelace. The Collingsworth Family will be back for a 10 a.m. session on Wednesday morning, Dec. 31, along with the Freedom Singers and Rick White.

In addition to performances by both the new and existing configuration of the Booth Brothers, the 8 p.m. session on Dec. 31 will also include Greater Vision and a Jubilee performance that includes the Booth Brothers, Greater Vision and Legacy Five. Legacy Five will be performing at each session. Then, the event will conclude with a 10 a.m. concert on Jan. 1 that will include Cal Reichnor in addition to the host group and the Jim Brady Trio.

Tickets are available by calling 931-379-7262, and registration for full weekend packages – which include lodging at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel – can be done by visiting www.celebrationnye.com.

JUBILEE CHRISTMAS TOUR TEAMS WITH SOCK FOR SENIORS

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on October 16, 2014 – 10:03 pm -

Socks for Seniors

Socks for Seniors

(NASHVILLE, Tenn) The Jubilee Christmas Tour, featuring award-winning Christian artists The Booth Brothers, Greater Vision and Legacy Five, is bringing a heart-warming Christmas concert to twelve cities this December, and they want your socks! After hearing first-hand the needs of many shut-in seniors during colder months, the artists and promoters of this exciting musical Christmas tour decided to partner with the national organization, Socks for Seniors, in an effort to collect and distribute warm socks to area seniors.

Gerald Wolfe of Greater Vision states, “Many of the folks that come to our concerts either know people through church, their community or even people in their families that are shut-ins or in nursing homes. We’ve learned that as it gets colder, something as simple as warm socks for these precious people can make all the difference in their comfort. We talked with the guys and decided we want to help make this Christmas season a little warmer for others, and that’s what sparked the idea.”

Tour promoters, Landon Beene and Brian Hudson (IMC Concerts) are working with Socks for Seniors to coordinate collection, distribution and some special appearances by the artists to deliver socks.

Concert attendees are encouraged to bring new, warm socks to the Jubilee Christmas Tour event in their area. Socks will be collected on-site at the concert and distributed to area seniors. For a complete listing of the Jubilee Christmas Tour dates – 12 Days of Christmas and ticket information, visit www.jubileechristmas.com.

THE PERRYS ANNOUNCE BRYAN WALKER’S DEPARTURE

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on October 15, 2014 – 2:08 pm -

Bryan Walker

Bryan Walker

StowTown Recording artists The Perrys have announced Bryan Walker will be leaving the group. Libbi Stuffle says, “Bryan has given his resignation, and we will be introducing a new vocalist to the Perrys line-up in the near future. We will announce the process to fill the vacancy as soon as plans are finalized.” There is no official final performance date for Bryan at this time.

Bryan, who joined the Perrys in 2010, says it has been a hard decision, but feels God has a new season in store for him. “I have the utmost respect for Tracy and Libbi Stuffle, and I’ve had a great time traveling with the Perrys. Especially this past year and a half, God has allowed me to learn things about myself, Him, and the ministry in general. It has been my hope that God has used me for a span of time to uphold the Perrys and help move them forward in their ministry. I love the Perrys and will do everything I can to support them as they continue their ministry.”
When Bryan shared his decision to come off the road with the Perrys, it was focused on he and wife Bethany’s desire to spend more time together and eventually start a family. However, Bryan says the day after he gave his notice, he was at a revival at his home church and re-surrendered the call to preach, a call he first surrendered to at age 18. “There is no doubt the timing is confirmation that God has a new season in store, and I’m excited for that. I would ask that you pray for my wife and me as we wait to see what this is actually going to look like in the future, and of course also please pray for the Perrys as they seek the person God would have for their group.”
Libbi says, “If I’ve learned anything in my life, especially in the past 21 months, it’s that God is faithful. We know He has a great plan for both Bryan and for the Perrys, too. We wish him and Bethany all the best and will be watching with everyone else to see what great things God does for and through them. As for The Perrys, we will continue to do our best to share the life-changing gospel of Christ through our music.”

Jeff Stice

Pigeon Forge, TN (October 13, 2014) Performing to a large crowd at the Blackwoods Morning Variety Show in the Smoky Mountain Opry in Pigeon Forge, TN, the award winning Gospel solo artist, Jeff Stice, mesmerized the audience with his entertaining, yet uplifting artistry.

The Blackwoods Morning Variety Show is no doubt the most entertaining program with a spiritual emphasis in all of Pigeon Forge, making Jeff Stice a natural fit. With the National Quartet Convention in town, the show was able to draw a nice number of fans from that venue.

The theater is tailor made for the Blackwood Show including lots of video to enhance the program. No video was needed when Jeff hit the stage. First he dazzled the crowd with his distinguished piano stylings on such songs as “It Is No Secret”, “The Impossible Dream” and “Crying In The Chapel”, then he had the crowd on their feet as he played “A Tribute To The US Military”.

Jeff Stice said “I’m just getting into this solo ministry and I am so thankful to my old friends RW and Donna Blackwood for giving me a chance to spread my wings and fly a little more.” Jeff continued “And what a special honor it was to be a part of their celebration of 80 years of ministry started by the Blackwood Brothers and now carried on by RW and Donna and all the Blackwood Singers.”

You can learn more about Jeff Stice at http://www.jeffsticemusic.com or https://www.facebook.com/jeffsticemusic . He can be Twittered at https://twitter.com/JeffsBleedinBlu .
