CRABB FAMILY Unveils Plans For REVIVE OUR NATION Tour

CRABB FAMILY Unveils Plans For REVIVE OUR NATION Tour

Global Promotions Presents 10 City Tour Featuring Beloved Musical Siblings

Nashville, TN  – During an on-air appearance on the Solid Gospel Radio Network, The Crabb FamilyAaron, Adam, Jason, Terah and Kelly – collectively announced the Revive Our Nation Tour.
Kicking off in San Antonio, Texas, the tour will make stops in a total of ten cities, delighting audiences and stirring souls as only The Crabb Family can.
The Revive Our Nation tour is about one thing: turning hearts back to the Father!
“In each of our own ministries, there’s been a stirring – a strong moving of the Holy Spirit drawing people to the Father,” says Jason Crabb. “This year, we felt – as a family – that God is calling us to revival, not just in a church setting, but in each life on a daily basis. God’s people are hungry for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit and we are excited to share what God has been doing in our lives!”
Earlier this year, The Crabb Family celebrated 20 years of ministry with the Platinum Tour. Paul Pitts, promoter, comments: “In 2015, the Crabb Family played to sold-out, standing-room-only crowds night after night. We expect this next year’s tour to be no different.”
Supported by special guest Mike Bowling, this will be an evening to remember – promising to refresh, renew and revive the soul and spirit!
The Crabb Family Revive Our Nation Tour Dates:
JANUARY 8, 2016 – SAN ANTONIO, TX
JANUARY 9, 2016 – LAKE CHARLES, LA
JANUARY 15, 2016 – JACKSONVILLE, FL

Chapel Valley announces new “Upper Room” label

Chapel Valley announces new “Upper Room” label

Chapel Valley announces new “Upper Room” label

Chapel Valley is excited to announce their upcoming label “Upper Room,” which will cater to the pure driving sound of the church.

Producer Shane Roark is personally overseeing the new label’s development, and says, “Many artists have built their sound and ministry around the anointing of God and have stayed true to lyrics of biblical philosophies. I have wanted to get deeply involved with these artists for years.”

“We finally have that dream coming true.”

The first artist Shane will work with on the Upper Room label is Tim and Lana Chandler, of Greenfield, Tennessee.

Tim and Lana are joined by daughters Tiffany, 19, and Lyndsey, 14. Their new project, the first Upper Room project, is expected by the end of 2015. Tim said he and Lana write most of their music, and he expects the project to “take a step up” in production.

“We’re looking for bigger productions and better quality (with Chapel Valley),” Tim says. “We’re expecting great results and are confident that will happen.”

Shane says the Upper Room label is “one more piece of the puzzle that makes up Chapel Valley,” as the company is known for its wide variety of gospel music genres. The company’s other labels – Inspire, Church House, Sanctuary, Mercy Road and CV – cater to genres from contemporary to country gospel.

Tim says it was the company’s “family atmosphere” and “focus on ministry” that sealed the deal.

“Everybody at Chapel Valley seems to be real,” he says. “We’re excited about that. It’s not quite so much about how much money we can make. It feels like it’s about how we can get the greatest product both for Chapel Valley and the artist.”

For more information about the Upper Room label contact Shane Roark at 865-278-3681.

CLAUDE HOPPER, GMA GOSPEL MUSIC HALL OF FAME MEMBER, SUFFERS SMALL STROKE

CLAUDE HOPPER UPDATE:
“Claude and Connie Hopper made the trip home from Kentucky yesterday afternoon, safe and sound. Dad was released with all of his motor skills and brain activity at 100%, AKA he is still Claude! He speaks in complete sentences, only struggling to form the final words. God has blessed us as this can be treated with some speech therapy. We are humbled by your support in prayer, and blessed beyond measure at the mildness of this incident.”
