Jim Brady Trio

Hendersonville, Tenn (September 19, 2014) – Tim Parton has been named the third member of the Jim Brady Trio in a touching must-see video announcement released over social media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECm7rR4fXz4  The group starts recording on their debut album immediately and will appear in concert nationwide beginning in January 2015.

Parton is best known to Southern Gospel audiences as the pianist for Legacy Five, where he moved audiences nightly with his vocal performance of “God’s Been Good.”  He has also played for the Gaither Vocal Band, Gold City, the Speer Family, Vestal Goodman, and others.  His vocal blend and instrumentation will help create an amazing new sound that will be the Jim Brady Trio.

Jim Brady commented, “In all of my years of following gospel music, Tim Parton is one of the nicest and most talented individuals I’ve ever met.  He’s an amazing musician and producer, a heartfelt singer, and a great man.  Melissa and I are excited to have him on our team!”

In a related announcement, the Booth Brothers added Paul Lancaster to fill the spot vacated by Jim Brady.  Lancaster will join the Booth Brothers at the end of 2014.  Lancaster’s powerful and blending vocals will fit perfectly with the Booth Brothers family harmony.  For more information on Paul Lancaster, visit www.boothbrothers.com.

CATHEDRALS FAMILY REUNION LIVE Recordings Top the Week’s Sales Charts

CATHEDRALS FAMILY REUNION LIVE Recordings Top the Week’s Sales Charts

Cathedrals Family Reuion Live

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—September 17th, 2014–The all-new Cathedrals Family Reunion, Past Members Reunite LIVE in Concert video debuted at #1 on this past week’s Christian Music Video chart and at #2 on the Billboard Music Video chart according to Nielsen SoundScan.  The audio version of the recording topped the Southern Gospel chart and landed at #25 on the Contemporary Christian chart.

Released by Gaither Music Group and Innovative Management and Consulting, LLC (IMC), the recordings capture the historical concerts that took place on November 8th and 9th, 2013, in Fort Worth, Texas, at the MacGorman Performing Arts Center where five former members of the legendary Cathedrals combined voices to celebrate the group’s legacy and pay honor to its founders Glen Payne and George Younce.
The two-day event featured performances by tenor Ernie Haase and his GRAMMY®-nominated quartet Ernie Haase & Signature Sound; baritone Scott Fowler and Legacy Five (a group he co-founded after The Cathedrals retired); lead vocalist and piano player Gerald Wolfe and Greater Vision (the heralded trio he formed upon leaving the group); beloved baritone and bass player Mark Trammel and The Mark Trammel Quartet; and tenor Danny Funderburk, now a popular solo artist and household name among gospel music lovers.  The recordings, an encouraging walk down memory lane, are a tribute to group members Payne and Younce, two patriarchs and mentors who were an inspiration to countless singers for many decades.
The excitement about the recordings and the overwhelming response to the initial concerts in Texas has resulted in a national tour in six select markets organized by IMC in association with Showcase Management.  The tour will start this November in Akron, Ohio, the birthplace of the original Cathedral Quartet where it all began.
Produced by award-winning producer/songwriter Wayne Haun, the Cathedrals Family Reunion, Past Members Reunite LIVE in Concert CD contains classic hits such as “Wedding Music,” “Yesterday,” “Somebody Touched Me,” “Step into the Water,” “Oh, What a Savior,” “Champion of Love,” “We Shall See Jesus” and more.  The companion DVD, produced by IMC’s Landon Beene, contains 17 songs including additions “Oh, Come Along,” “We Shall Be Caught Up,” “Search Me O God” and more.
The new CD and DVD are part of a tv special airing this fall on Dish TV, DirecTV, AT&T Uverse, GaitherTV, TBN, RFD, FamilyNet, CTN, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN.  It will air in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV; and the projects are featured in the current HOMECOMING Magazine.
The releases are distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and are available at retail and digital outlets worldwide including iTunes, Amazon and www.gaither.com.  For more information on the event and/or to purchase tickets or product, please visit www.CathedralsFamilyReunion.com.

Pauline Patterson

Pigeon Forge, TN, noted for it’s beautiful Smoky Mountains, family entertainment, and wholesome environment, is beginning to be known as the center of Southern Gospel Music so it’s appropriate to

The emcees were the incredible and hilarious Tim Lovelace and Sue and Jeff Duffield.
Pauline Patterson, founder of the event, has a genuine love for people and a passion for spreading the Gospel through Southern Gospel music. In 2005, she ventured into the world of promoting Southern Gospel music to radio. Nine years later she is recognized as a leading promoter of the genre.
Pauline says, “What a time we had at our 2nd Annual Patterson Homecoming! The Spirit filled the auditorium! The artists that took part in this year’s event added so much to its success. I’m proud to say that we work with some of the best men and women of God in the Southern Gospel Industry! They are the cream of the crop. God has truly blessed Patterson Promotions through the years to work with some awesome ministries. If you didn’t make it this year, hopefully you can be with us next year. Lord willing, we will do it all over again!”

“Gospel Music Hymn Sing” set for September 22 release

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on September 12, 2014 – 7:39 pm -

Hymn Sing

Hymn Sing

MORRISTOWN, TN – September 11, 2014 – Gerald Wolfe has announced the upcoming release of Gospel Music’s first-ever BluRay Disc.  The “Gospel Music Hymn Sing” recording will be the first Gospel Music event to be released in the High-Definition, BluRay video format.  The BluRay Disc will be released on Monday September 22, 2014 at the National Quartet Convention in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

 

The “Gospel Music Hymn Sing” was recorded on July 7th, 2014 at First Baptist Church in Morristown, Tennessee, in full 1080p High-Definition and 5.1 Surround-Sound audio. The recording features 30 Hymns and Gospel Classics, sung by 1,400 voices, including 46 well-known Gospel Artists and a 100-voice Choir, accompanied by a live band.
Gerald Wolfe, Producer of the “Gospel Music Hymn Sing,” said “We wanted to give the viewer the experience of being in the audience, when they watch the video. A BluRay Disc is currently the only way to see a video in full 1080p resolution.  When you include 5.1 Surround-Sound, it becomes an almost-immersive experience, and it’s the closest a person can get to “being there,” without actually being at the event.” Wolfe added, “Greater Vision was the first Gospel Artist to release a DVD, back in 1996, and we’re really excited to be a part of moving the greatest music in the world into the BluRay format.”
The video was recorded by ViewFinders, and Produced and Directed by Kim White.  “When you watch the stunning, full HD video and listen to 1400 voices in 5.1 Surround Sound… I guarantee you will have to remind yourself over and over that you aren’t actually in the 2nd row!  All of us at ViewFinder’s are thrilled to be a part of this Blu-Ray release!” White commented. The Live-Event was promoted by IMC Concerts, and the BluRay Disc manufacturing is being overseen by Tribute Media Source.  Landon Beene, President of IMC Concerts and Tribute Media Source, said “We have the greatest musical genre in the world.  I’m so honored we have the opportunity to bring the very best quality and cutting edge technology to the viewers and listeners by way of Gospel Music’s first-ever Blue-Ray Disc.”  The 5.1 Surround-Sound audio was recorded and mixed by award-winning Engineer, Bob Williams.

 

The “Gospel Music Hymn Sing” recording will also be released on DVD and a Music CD.
