The Gatlin Brothers Release New Sneakers to Aid Families of Fallen Military Heroes

Nashville, Tenn.  — Larry, Steve & Rudy: The Gatlin Brothers are in full sprint to help aid all those grieving a military loss. The legendary country trio has announced the release of a new running/walking shoe that will be sold to help benefit the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). The national non-profit organization provides peer-based emotional support, grief and trauma resources, seminars, camps for kids, casework assistance and a 24/7 helpline. All resources and services are provided at no cost to military survivors.

Designed by Boulder, Colorado-based Newton Running, the TAPS x Gatlin shoe is decked out in red, white and blue, and embedded with the Gatlin Brothers and TAPS logos.

“For 25 years, TAPS has provided support for more than 85,000 loved ones and care givers whose families have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we all enjoy,” explains Bonnie Carroll, TAPS Founder and President. “We have enjoyed a long friendship with the Gatlin Brothers who have always given generously of their time and talent to our families. And, we are so excited that we can now welcome Newton Running to the TAPS Family.”

“At Newton Running, we are delighted to be partnering with the Gatlin Brothers on this special edition running/walking shoe to benefit TAPS,” adds Newton Running Co-Founder Jerry Lee. “We believe that every great cause begins with movement. This project holds a special place in our hearts as we deeply value all those who have served our country and their families.”

On Saturday morning’s edition of Fox & Friends, Larry Gatlin unveiled the new shoe. Following his appearance, the sneakers were sold out within three minutes. Newton Running has since ordered its manufacturing team to step up production to accommodate the groundswell of public demand. Pre-orders are available at newtonrunning.com.

The shoe retails for $150.00 with $50.00 of each purchase going to TAPS.

“Great shoes, great people, great cause,” says Larry. “Buy ’em. I do!”

Gaithers Film Homecoming Tent Revival Special at Billy Graham Library

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on May 10, 2011 – 10:11 am -

CHARLOTTE, N.C., — Southern gospel music legends Bill and Gloria Gaither, along with the “Homecoming” friends – more than 100 gospel artists – were in Charlotte last week to film the Gaither Homecoming Tent Revival special at the Billy Graham Library.

“It’s a perfect place for us,” said Bill Gaither about the Billy Graham Library.

The Gaither Homecoming Tent Revival special is reminiscent of early tent revival meetings, much like the “Canvas Cathedral” in Los Angeles where Billy Graham gained worldwide recognition in 1949. In fact, the Gaither event aimed to recreate the atmosphere of that historic crusade, with its large tent and standing-room only crowd.

High-resolution images and video b-roll are available upon request.“A lot of our folks grew up singing in tent meetings,” Gaither continued. “Going through the Library and seeing one of the exhibitions is that of the old tent in Los Angeles brought back those memories for us.”

“Music has always been a very important part of the Billy Graham Crusades. In fact, the Vocal Band has sung at the last 10 or 12 Crusades, including the last one in New York City,” said Gaither. “And, so to have an entire evening, singing songs about Jesus, singing songs about the cross, singing songs about invitation, I think is a great thing.”

Before the event, private tours were given of the Billy Graham Library to the participating artists. The group was able to see depictions of various scenes from Billy and Ruth Graham’s life, including a replica of the “Canvas Cathedral” from the 1949 Los Angeles Crusade.

Bill and Gloria Gaither were joined by legendary gospel music artists The Crabb Family, Michael English, David Phelps, Guy Penrod, Mark Lowry, The Gatlin Brothers, Buddy Greene, Larnelle Harris, The Nelons, The Martins, The Isaacs, longtime Billy Graham Crusade soloist George Beverly Shea and musical director Cliff Barrows, plus many more.

During the program, Bill Gaither presented 102-year-old George Beverly Shea with a commemorative copy of Billboard magazine, which has listed a Gaither Homecoming special with George Beverly Shea as #3 on its chart of best-selling music videos.

Visit www.gaither.com for more information about the Gaither Homecoming Tent Revival special, including the complete artist list. Future announcements about air dates and the availability for purchase will also be found on the website.
About the Gaithers
The Gaithers, who will celebrate 50 years of marriage next year, have been in the gospel music industry for more than 40 years. The couple spent the first several years of their married life juggling teaching jobs, writing, singing, recording and publishing. By 1967, they were making music full time.
By 1991, Bill had formed a group called the Gaither Vocal Band and had been performing with them for several years. He pulled together some of his gospel music heroes to record a song for what he thought would be their final album. What took place that day was very special, and it was captured on video. Thus, the “Homecoming” series was born.
Over the decades, the Gaithers have won top honors in gospel music, including more than two dozen Dove awards, several Grammy awards, and receiving the Gospel Music Association’s “Songwriter of the Year” distinction multiple times.
Many of the songs sung in churches today were written by Bill and Gloria Gaither, including: Because He Lives, There’s Just Something About That Name and He Touched Me. In fact, together, the Gaithers have penned hundreds of gospel songs still used in worship settings today.
