 The Freemans Bus Catches Fire On Way Home From Canadian Tour


The Freemans Bus Catches Fire On Way Home From Canadian Tour

HENDERSONVILLE, TN -Nationally known and multi-award winning Gospel artist, The Freemans bus caught fire in Canada about 30 minutes after leaving a show on their last Canadian Tour Date late Sunday evening as they were headed back home to Hendersonville.

Caylon Freeman, drummer for the band saw smoke in the bunk area of the bus and went for the fire extinguisher. The driver was able to pull over immediately where everyone exited the bus. Witnesses say it appeared to be an electrical fire which was isolated to the bunk areas. The fire was contained and they were able to travel the rest of the way home with the power cut off to that area of the bus. There were three other people on the bus at the time the fire started which included singers Chris, Darrell and Joe Freeman.

Chris Freeman stated, “We are so grateful to have been on the bus at the time and were able to take immediate action. We had just fueled the bus and were headed home. If we had been away from the bus it could have been a very different story. We thank God for his protection over us.”

JASON CRABB HONORED WITH STREET IN HIS HOMETOWN

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 23, 2015 – 2:58 pm -

JASON CRABB HONORED WITH STREET IN HIS HOMETOWN

JASON CRABB HONORED WITH STREET IN HIS HOMETOWN

NEW STUDIO ALBUM, WHATEVER THE ROAD, RELEASING SEPTEMBER 18, 2015

NASHVILLE, TENN. – July 23, 2015GRAMMY® winner and 21-time Dove Award winning artist Jason Crabb was recently honored with a street name, “Jason Crabb Drive,” in his hometown of Beaver Dam, KY. This past weekend during a hometown show at the new, state-of-the-art Beaver Dam Amphitheater, the city surprised and honored Crabb with the street sign for the road entering the Amphitheater.
”We were thrilled to have Jason come home for this concert,” shared Mayor Paul Sandefur. “We were even more thrilled to show him how proud we are of him and his work by naming the street into Beaver Dam’s new amphitheater after Jason, Jason Crabb Drive!” Sandefur, along with City Commissioners Charles Patton, Kevin Davis and Sandy Robinson, presented him with the honor.
Jason Crabb was performing in his hometown for the first time since he had laid his beloved Grandmother to rest earlier this year so it was an emotional homecoming. “I can’t even begin to tell you how shocked and humbled I am,” shared Crabb with his fans on Facebook. “I wish my Grandma and Grandfather could be here. I’m so proud to be from Beaver Dam. I can’t believe this!”
The Beaver Dam Amphitheater opened this past fall and has already hosted to artists such as Merle Haggard, Newsboys, Aaron Tippin and more. The venue will host upcoming shows from Third Day in August and the Blue Moon Bluegrass Music Festival in October.
This honor precedes Crabb’s upcoming new studio album, Whatever The Road, which releases on September 18th as his first album with new label home Reunion Records, a division of Provident Label Group/Sony Music. Working with producers Jason Ingram (Chris Tomlin, Tenth Avenue North, Kari Jobe), and Paul Mabury (Hillsong, Lauren Daigle, One Sonic Society), Crabb takes a bold new step forward, not just lyrically but stylistically, and has finely honed a collection of anthems for the church that have sophisticated pop sensibilities as well as deep, substantive lyrics.
“I’ve never wanted to be pigeon-holed,” states Crabb of this new musical venture. “I just wanted to make music. I finally found that if you’re part of the creative process of the song, then it becomes you. With this record, I feel like it’s a little more of who I am than what I’ve been. It’s where I want to be and it’s wonderful.”
Fans can now pre-order the upcoming release through July 31 and receive a three-song sampler along with three new songs. Click here to pre-order Whatever The Road.

Debut of Concept Video “Empty Pews” Back Home with Guest Scott Fowler

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 23, 2015 – 8:30 am -

Debut of Concept Video "Empty Pews" Back Home with Guest Scott Fowler

Debut of Concept Video “Empty Pews” Back Home with Guest Scott Fowler

Nashville, TN (July 23, 2015)  Back Home (Jimmy and Jennifer Layne), from South Pittsburg, TN are debuting their 3rd concept video called “Empty Pews” today with SGN Scoops.  The song “Empty Pews” is a very important song for those in ministry and the church. The video focuses on the pastoral role.  In the video, you will see a pastor pouring out his heart in a sermon only to discover he’s doing so to an empty church because he doesn’t feel he can do so with his congregation.  The idea for the song came after Jennifer read multiple stories of pastors leaving the ministry, becoming atheist, committing suicide, etc and wanted to do something to bring attention to the matter in a loving way.  She brought the idea to a writing session with Mark Narmore and Kenna Turner West and the three wrote this song.

Back Home was joined by Dr. Tim Hill, Director of Missions for the Church of God and Scott Fowler of Legacy Five on the video that was filmed at the North Cleveland Church of God/Dixon Chapel in Cleveland, TN.

Scott Fowler expresses, “My dad was a bi-vocational pastor.  I am very excited because I know this song and video will encourage pastors.”  Scott is also a featured guest vocalist on the duos newest CD.

Dr Tim Hill shares, “The first time I heard the song “Empty Pews” I knew that Jennifer Layne, Kenna Turner-West, and Mark Narmore had captured the heart of so many pastors in the United States of America and around the world, There’s something here that speaks about the need to follow God and your calling; the drive to please so many people; and, yet, the disappointment when you’re not able to. I hope that everybody who hears to this song and watches this video will be attentive to the lyrics but, more importantly, that they will listen carefully for the healing that flows through the lyrics in “Empty Pews.””

“We have had multiple TV Networks already asking for the video for their programming.   We are thankful that Rob Patz is debuting this on his GREAT site, SGN Scoops.’ (Jimmy Layne, Back Home)   Additional information on Back Home can be obtained from the Adoration Agency’s Sophia Davis at 1-615-590-7453 or sophia@adorationagency.com.

It was fantastic to see the singers switch in and out doing so many of their hits as well as popular songs of these groups birthed from Gold City! How tremendous to see them work together with no egos or disharmony.” Continuing she said “And the ‘costal’ came out in the Baptist a few times last night. Especially in It’s Still The Cross”.
