The Master of the Wind……

Written by scoopsnews on July 22, 2017 – 7:32 am -

MARK 4:39,40 39 “And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And He said unto them, ‘Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?’ “

I love to vacation at the beach. One of my favorite things to do is watch the waves come in. Something about it calms me. I seem to forget the stress of the world.

The thing about the ocean is that the same calming water can quickly turn into a raging storm. If your not careful and if you don’t watch for the signs, you can easily get caught right in the middle of it. Have you ever thought about what you would do if you got caught in a boat in the middle of the storm?

I can swim but I’m no Olympic swimmer. I would probably stay in the boat and hold on for dear life.  I’m sure the waves would be slapping me in the face and I might want to give up, but I think I would hold on for dear life!

MARK 4:39,40 39 “And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And He said unto them, ‘Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?’ “

But in our spiritual lives, why are we so fearful?
Jesus Himself asked the question. When financial difficulties, or health issues or relationship problems strike us, why do we become scared ? The bank or a doctor may be able to help you for a short time but when you are all alone and about to sink, who should we hold on to?

Before getting in the boat,  it is important to know where the anchor is. And before sailing through life, it’s most important to know Who your anchor is…..

Vonda Easley

Gaither Christmas Homecoming 2016

Gaither Christmas Homecoming 2016

The Gaither Christmas Homecoming Tour 2016 stopped in Nashville, TN at Lipscomb University on December 8th.

SGNScoops roving photojournalist, Craig Harris, was at the venue to capture every minute of excitement.

Many Gaither favorites were there including the Gaither Vocal Band, The Martins, The Isaacs, Buddy Greene, Landy and Joy Gardner and the Christ Church Choir, Russ Taff, Charlotte Ritchie, Gene McDonald, Matthew Holt and Kevin Williams.

We hope you enjoy the many Gaither Christmas Homecoming 2016faces of the Christmas Homecoming Tour 2016!

More About Bill Gaither

An avid fan of gospel quartets throughout his childhood, Bill founded his first group, The Bill Gaither Trio, in 1956, while he was a college student. He began teaching English in 1959 because his musical aspirations couldn’t support him full-time… yet. In 1962, Bill did one of the best things he has ever done. He married Gloria Sickal, who became the best writing partner Bill could have found anywhere. The couple spent the first five years of their married life juggling full-Gaither Christmas Homecoming 2016time teaching jobs, writing, singing, recording and publishing until music became their full-time career in 1967.

The collaborations of Bill and Gloria have resulted in more than 700 popular gospel songs, including the hymnal standard “Because He Lives,” “The King Is Coming,” “Something Beautiful,” “He Touched Me,” “It Is Finished,” “There’s Something About That Name,” “Let’s Just Praise The Lord,” and “Loving God, Loving Each Other.” Bill and Gloria have collectively won eight Grammy Awards and more than a dozen nominations, and they have received more than two dozen Dove Awards from The Gospel Music Association, earning the title of Gospel Music Association’s “Songwriter of the Year” eight times.

After decades of unprecedented musical successes, Bill and Gloria still operate Gaither Christmas Homecoming 2016their business from Bill’s hometown of Alexandria, Indiana, and they dwell in the same home in which they raised their family. They live a lifestyle focused on investing their resources into eternal things.

“Our calling is not just making music… but communicating the reality of Christ. That might mean birthing a song about Him or simply offering a cup of cold water to someone who needs it. Gloria and I have never claimed to have God figured out, but we do know that if He could use two imperfect people like us to communicate His Truth to the world, He can use everyone sitting in the audience, working on our staff or singing with us. If we have done anything right over the years, I hope we have built bridges where people could connect with God and with each other. Gaither Christmas Homecoming 2016That is what started us writing and what will keep us going for the rest of our lives.”  [From December 10, 2016.]

Isaacs Partner With New Day Christian Distributors for Release of Nature’s Symphony in 432

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 25, 2016 – 8:47 am -

The Isaacs Partner With New Day Christian Distributors for Release of Nature's Symphony in 432

The Isaacs Partner With New Day Christian Distributors for Release of Nature’s Symphony in 432

Hendersonville, TN  – Multi-award winning family group, The Isaacs, and their label, House of Isaacs Music, have partnered with New Day Christian Distributors on the release of their newest studio project, entitled Nature’s Symphony in 432: A Journey From Pain To Praise. The project, which is scheduled to release on September 2nd, will be available to the Christian marketplace exclusively through New Day, with marketing and label support provided by Daywind Records.

Nature’s Symphony in 432 has been a labor of love for the musical family, comprised of siblings Sonya, Ben and Becky, and their mother Lily.  Born out of a season of pain and struggle, each song is a personal testimony that speaks to the faithfulness of God and offers praise and rejoicing to the Lord through the trials of life. After much research and prayer, the group chose to record the project in 432 tuning, the frequency which most closely reflects the sounds found in nature, further setting this 15-song collection apart from other recorded albums.  Also of interest is that the executive producer on this record is none other than NFL Hall of Famer and sports commentator, Terry Bradshaw, who has a guest vocal appearance on the record.

Nature’s Symphony in 432 is not what we consider a typical Isaacs record,” the Isaacs share. “As the title itself indicates, it was recorded in a different tuning (432hz), one that we feel God led us to use. From the writing of the songs, to the recording process, to special guests, and now the release, we have prayed many prayers for the right doors to be opened. We knew, when the time was right, that God would lead us to the perfect partners to accomplish His will concerning it. Finally, that time has come and we are so excited that New Day Distributors will be presenting this album to the world! They have prayerfully begun this co-venture with us and we look forward to working together on this new project release.”

New Day’s Ed Leonard adds, “Our partnership with the Isaacs across our distribution and label platforms enables us to explore a new model for artists.  It all begins with the songs, and the Isaacs have crafted a magnificent work. We look forward to working closely with them to achieve their goals.”

The first single from Nature’s Symphony in 432, entitled ‘This Is The Year,’ is at Southern Gospel radio now.   The project will be available to the Christian marketplace exclusively through New Day Christian. Mainstream and digital distribution are being provided by Sony RED.

The Isaacs are a multi-award winning family group based out of Hendersonville, TN.  Drawing from bluegrass, country, contemporary Christian and southern gospel influences, infused with their signature acoustic instrumentation, the Isaacs’ unique sound and blended harmonies appeal to a wide range of audiences and has earned them notoriety in a variety of genres.  They have been featured artists on the Gaither Homecomings, as well as appearing on stages such as the Grand Ole Opry, Dove Awards, IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Awards, ICMA (Inspirational Country Music Association) Awards, CMA Music Week, Carnegie Hall and professional sporting events across the country.

New Day Christian Distributors is a super distributor based in Hendersonville, TN. It provides one-stop access to the best products from major companies in Christian music, films, books, gifts, games, toys, apparel, and more. In addition, New Day brings fantastic offerings from its many exclusive relationships with independent companies, artists, and labels. For more information on New Day, visit

🇱🇷Star Spangled Banner- The Isaacs🇱🇷

Written by scoopsnews on July 4, 2016 – 8:02 am -


Great Performance by The Isaacs…. Happy 4th of July everyone.

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
