Written by SGN Scoops on March 15, 2012 – 4:24 pm -

Nashville, Tenn. (March 12, 2012) – Proving once again that Country music artists have a big heart for the whole world, Ken Harding, president of New Haven Records, has joined Executive Producer Mark Carman, president of MCM World Media, to announce the upcoming release of the landmark CD, I’m Working On A Building. The title cut from the project, recorded by Marty Raybon (former lead singer of Shenandoah), has already been nominated for a Country Gospel Music Fan Award, presented annually by Christian Voice magazine.

This inspiring collection of new and existing songs was created exclusively to benefit the work of International Cooperating Ministries (ICM), a non-profit foundation that has constructed approximately 4,000 churches, orphanages and schools in more than 50 countries, supporting more than 20,000 congregations during the past 25 years.

The centerpiece of this collection is a high-octane version of the title cut by Raybon, featuring Country superstar Trace Adkins, Jimmy Fortune (of The Statler Brothers), and Country Music Association Award winner T. Graham Brown. The “Working On a Building” single is already receiving a tremendous response at Christian Country, Southern Gospel and select mainstream Country radio stations and is up for Favorite Song at the CGM Fan Awards program, scheduled for April 28 as part of Country Gospel Music FanFest in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. The GCM Fan Awards, selected solely by Country and Southern Gospel music fans, are sponsored each year by Christian Voice magazine. Read more »

Beyond The Ashes Appears On The Grand Ole Opry Stage During CMA Week

Beyond The Ashes Live at the Grand Ole Opry (l to r-Anthony Facello, Casey Rivers, Kellan Monroe)

Nashville, TN (June 15, 2011) – Dynamic vocal trio, Beyond The Ashes, appeared on the Grand Ole Opry Stage this past Sunday, June 12th, 2011, during CMA Week, in Nashville, TN.  The award-winning trio was a hit with Opry stars and fans alike.

They appeared as a part of a great line up of artists on the 32nd Annual “Sunday Mornin’ Country” at the Grand Ole Opry.  Their performance was stellar and had the audience and the other participants buzzing about their incredible talent.  Some of the others who shared the stage with Beyond The Ashes that day were Linda Davis, Marty Raybon, Roy Clark, George Hamilton IV, Lulu Roman, T. Graham Brown, and others.

Grammy winning vocalist and co-host for the event, Linda Davis, summed up her feelings and the experience of those around her this way. “The Saturday rehearsal for Sunday Morning Country was held in the Nashville Musicians Union.  Those present when the boys of Beyond The Ashes arrived were myself, a few production people, the 7 piece band, and 3 background vocalists.  We all had a lot going on.  It was 9:00am and, at a casual rehearsal like this, most artists just go through the motions so they can get in and out and move on with their day.”  Davis continued,  “Normally the band reads the chart, plays the tune, and gears up for the next act.  Well, not this particular morning!  When Beyond the Ashes stepped up to their mics the preoccupied MCCF worker bees, as well as the musicians, totally stopped in their tracks! The guys sang “Peace in the Valley” as if they were in front of 20,000 people.  We were so moved by their performance.  The Holy Spirit was all over that little room and everyone there knew it.  The next day, on the Opry stage, their actual show was flawless!  The crowd at the Grand Ole Opry House felt the spirit there, as well.  I was just lucky enough to get a
little taste of what it’ll sound like in heaven…two days in a row!”

Appearing along with Beyond The Ashes were Marty Raybon, Roy Clark, George Hamilton IV, Lulu Roman, T. Graham Brown, Linda Davis and others.
