Nashville, TN (March 27, 2018) – StowTown Records artist, Matt Reith of Southern Raised, has been honored with an award in a Christian short film competition.  Matt’s video, Wanna Be, features the Southern Raised song “Wanna Be”, which is on their current StowTown Records project, Another World, distributed by Sony/Provident Distribution.

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound’s Clear Skies Hits No. 1

Written by Staff on February 16, 2018 – 11:25 am -

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Deliver Clear Skies

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound’s Clear Skies Hits No. 1

Nashville, TN (February 16, 2018) – Grammy® nominated and multi-award winning group Ernie Haase & Signature Sound‘s latest project, Clear Skies, is a HIT!

The release debuted at No. 1 the week of release on the Nielsen SoundScan Southern Gospel chart. Lauded by press and fans alike, Clear Skies, has found a home in the heart of listeners across the country, with the latest single – the title track “Clear Skies” – already making an imprint on radio charts.
Clear Skies is available now – in stores and via digital outlets.
The new release is especially meaningful right now, as just a few weeks ago, Tara Younce – sister of Ernie’s wife, Lisa – passed away from cancer. In the midst of preparing for one of the beloved group’s most hopeful releases, Ernie and his family were dealing with a very private pain. As they were starting to promote the new release, Ernie took time off to reflect and grieve with his family.
In his first interview since Tara’s passing, Ernie Haase recently opened up to Faithwire’s Billy Hallowell in an exclusive interview. Click here to read the article.

The highly-anticipated release, on Haase’s own StowTown Records/Provident Distribution, features inspirational and encouraging themes set to out-of-the-box musical moments and masterful production. This release delivers a cornucopia of musical styles and themes from the modern “My Hallelujah” to the 1975 Imperials classic arrangement of “Give Them All To Jesus” to the fresh and appealing “Sailing With Jesus.”

StowTown Records celebrates Chart-Topping Success

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on February 2, 2017 – 10:02 am -

StowTown Records celebrates
Chart-Topping Success

(Nashville, TN)… StowTown Records has made an obvious impact in gospel music since its inception six years ago, welcoming in some of the best talent and earning the ultimate respect of everyone in the industry.

It’s now safe to say that respect has reached a whole new level.

StowTown is currently celebrating three top rankings in three separate categories on the most recent Nielsen Christian SoundScan charts.

Brooklyn & Courtney, the latest special project by The Collingsworth Family, has quickly risen to the top of the Instrumental category after its release this month.

Talented sisters, Brooklyn and Courtney, put together this long-awaited violin duet album which includes 10 fan-favorite selections such as “At The Cross,” “The Prayer,” “What A Friend We Have In Jesus” and “Let There Be Peace On Earth.”

Meanwhile, the popular new trio, Cana’s Voice, has earned the top spot again in the Inspirational category with their StowTown debut album, This Changes Everything.

With the powerful combination of three beloved vocalists, Jody McBrayer, TaRanda Greene and Doug Anderson, Cana’s Voice has sky-rocketed up the charts in recent months with the help of their first radio single, “Jesus Never Fails.”

To cap off the impressive StowTown trifecta, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, have reached Number 1 in the Southern Gospel category with their recent project, The Favorite Hymns of Fanny Crosby.

Dedicated to one of the greatest hymnists in American history, the fan-favorite quartet released this album in honor of Crosby’s unlimited contributions and dedication to gospel music.

Well-known hymns such as “Jesus Keep Me Near The Cross,” “Blessed Assurance,” “Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior” and “Tell Me The Story Of Jesus” are each included among all these special selections.

“We spend hundreds of hours finding material, arranging it, recording it, mixing it and distributing it,” said StowTown Records co-founder, creative director and longtime producer Wayne Haun. “When we see our hard work reflected on the charts, it’s a reminder that what we do matters. These songs encourage and change lives!”

StowTown President Landon Beene adds, “I couldn’t be more proud of our artists at StowTown Records, as well as our entire team. We have worked intensely this year to provide our artists a solid team to support them in marketing and radio. When you see a surge of sales like this on Nielsen SoundScan reports, not for one artist, but several, itbcan only mean that our efforts as a company are working!”

StowTown amassed a total of six albums in the most recent Overall Top 100 Billboard Chart, including Only Faith Can See by The Erwins.

These popular projects are each exclusively distributed by Provident-Sony Distribution and available in Christian bookstores and digital outlets worldwide.

StowTown Records Takes Nashville by Storm

StowTown Records Takes Nashville by Storm

(Nashville, TN)… StowTown Records made a big presence on the big stage in a big way over the weekend in “The Music City.”

The award-winning Southern Gospel quartet, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, took the stage at the world famous Grand Ole Opry. EHSS performed some of its fan-favorites during two shows Saturday evening alongside longtime Country Music legends, Trace Adkins and Ricky Skaggs.

“Our time at the Opry was filled with absolute love!” said Ernie Haase. “The crowd gave us an enormous standing ovation and loved the presentation of Gospel Music, and, to that, we are very humbled and grateful.”

The popular quartet performed many songs from its chart-topping brand new StowTown project, The Favorite Hymns of Fanny Crosby. Well-known hymns like “Jesus Keep Me Near The Cross”, “Blessed Assurance”, “Pass Me Not – O Gentle Savior” and “Tell Me The Story Of Jesus” are just a few highlighted selections on the album.

Then, on Sunday, fast-rising gospel family group, The Erwins, had the honor of performing our National Anthem at Nissan Stadium just prior to the Tennessee Titans’ win over the visiting Cleveland Browns in the National Football League.

The Erwin family has a long-standing friendship with Titans President/CEO Steve Underwood and his family. The Underwoods have been Southern Gospel music fans for many years.

After sending in a video to the Titans for consideration, The Erwins received the invitation call in July to sing at one of the team’s home games this season. Singing in front of over 60,000 fans marked the largest ever National Anthem performance for the family quartet.

“We were so honored to be invited to sing the National Anthem in Nashville where there are so many other wonderful singers! We will never forget this experience or this day as long as we live,” said group emcee and lead singer Keith Erwin. “The Titan fans made us feel right at home and we were BLOWN AWAY by their kind reception and remarks!”

It continued what has been a whirlwind month of popularity for The Erwins following their recently released brand new StowTown album, Only Faith Can Seewhich has rapidly soared up the charts.

The Favorite Hymns of Fanny Crosby and Only Faith Can See are both available worldwide through Provident-Sony distribution.
