Award-winning songwriter Marty Funderburk to remain with Daywind Music Publishing

Written by Staff on March 5, 2015 – 1:37 pm -

unnamedHENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (March 4, 2015) – Dove Award winner Marty Funderburk has signed an exclusive agreement to remain as a part of the Daywind Music Publishing roster of songwriters. The veteran Funderburk has been affiliated with Daywind Music Publishing for the past 17 years.

“Songwriting is a privilege I hope I never take for granted,” explains Funderburk. “Daywind Publishing has nurtured my creativity and allowed me the freedom to express that which God places in my heart for the past 17 years. I look forward to all that God has in store as we re-commit ourselves to moving forward with the work at hand.”

While he has had dozens of songs land on the radio charts, Funderburk has had two No. 1 singles – the Kingdom Heirs’ hit “Forever Changed” and the Talley Trio’s chart-topping “Life Goes On.” His songs have been recorded by Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs and the Whites, Gold City, Jake Hess, Janet Paschal, Sisters, Brian Free & Assurance, the Hoppers, the Blackwood Brothers, Greater Vision, Mark Lowry, Karen Peck and New River, The Mark Trammell Trio, the Perrys, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound and the Bowlings.

Of his nine Dove Award nominations, the latest came earlier in 2014, with Funderburk’s Christmas musical – “The Highest Glory” – winning the Dove Award for Musical of the Year.

“Marty Funderburk brought his talent to Daywind Publishing in the very early days of its existence,” points out Daywind Vice President of Music Publishing Rick Shelton. “His brilliant songs have been recorded by every major artist in our genre, and his choir music has been performed by thousands of church choirs. Marty is a dear member of the Daywind family. We are so very proud of him and the impact of his songwriting.”

Daywind Music Publishing is the premier source of new songs for the Southern Gospel and church print/choral markets. The organization is home to an award-winning roster of songwriters, including Belinda Smith, Dianne Wilkinson, Jason Cox, Joseph Habedank, Kyla Rowland, John Darin Rowsey, Ronny Hinson, Gerald Crabb and Scott Inman, among others. For more information, visit www.daywindpublishing.com  or e-mail info@daywindpublishing.com.

The Hoppers

The Hoppers

(Madison, NC) – The Hoppers, GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame members and legendary gospel artists, are gearing up for an exciting year with the announcement of their 58 City Tour! The tour finds the talented family group continuing their partnership with talent agent and tour producer Israel Berry, President/CEO of The Berry Agency to present this concert experience.

The tour will feature The Hoppers along with a choir (in select cities), special memories and moments as they celebrate fifty-eight years of music ministry. Gospel music lovers can expect a very unique and exciting evening with America’s favorite family as they take a musical trip down memory lane.

The first leg of the tour begins on Friday, February 20 and concerts are set to be presented throughout the entire year.

All tour dates for this special tour can be found at www.TheHoppers.com.

Multi-award winning family group The Hoppers – known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music – have been singing to global audiences for over 55 years with appearances ranging from presidential religious inaugural ceremonies and New York’s Carnegie Hall to singing conventions and church platforms. They have performed throughout the United States as well as in Israel, Europe and Africa. Their unique blend of harmonies and song choices have created a legacy of musical excellence embraced by leading pastors and event organizers. Known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, they are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land near the top of the BILLBOARD sales charts and The Singing News radio charts.

In 2012, the group was inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame alongside Aretha Franklin, Ricky Skaggs, Love Song, Rex Humbard, and Dallas Holm.

Comprised today of family members Claude & Connie, son Dean and his wife, Kim, and son Mike Hopper, The Hoppers were formed in 1957 in the rural-farm town of Madison, NC, and have grown continuously for decades, touching countless lives around the world. A cancer survivor, Connie has been honored with the prestigious Marvin Norcross Award, in addition to numerous industry and fan honors; and she has been inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Sons Dean and Mike have continued the family legacy with their musical talents and business abilities; and Kim, Dean’s wife, hails from her own nationally acclaimed musical family, The Greenes. She is noted for the excitement she brings to any live performance, and her unmistakable, rafter-ringing soprano vocals have taken The Hoppers to new heights for many years.

The Hoppers are celebrating over 5 DECADES of music excellence – don’t miss this chance to catch America’s favorite family of Gospel music, THE HOPPERS!
