The McKameys' The Crown debuts at #1 on Billboard chart

The McKameys’ The Crown debuts at #1 on Billboard chart

Arden, North Carolina  — Beloved Southern Gospel group The McKameys have claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard Southern Gospel chart with The Crown, their 54th album. The Crown also sits at #9 on Billboard’s Contemporary Christian Music Chart and #11 on Billboard’s Top Christian/Gospel Albums chart.

“All we can say is wow! Who would have ever thought this would happen to us?” says Ruben Bean of The McKameys. “We are truly surprised and thankful to God for all He is doing with this project. What a pleasant surprise!”

In a way like no other, The McKameys have brought their anointed message of faithfulness and the power of the Gospel to the world, with the most #1 hits in Southern Gospel history, a dedicated following and unquestionable faith in the Lord.

The Crown, from Horizon Recordscomes as these legacy artists announce they will no longer be touring full-time after this fall.

“From the mountain sounds of ‘Go Back And Pray’ to the classic sounds of ‘You Must Be Born Again’; with ‘From Dust To Glory,’ the story of every Christian, to the reminder that ‘God Is Good,’ and all the songs in between…God has surely put His touch on this project and we are grateful!” The McKameys say.

Listen to The Crown HERE.

JONATHAN WILBURN TO HOST JACKIE WILBURN MEMORIAL SPRING SING DURING SOUTHERN GOSPEL WEEK IN SMITH COUNTY

Event set to take place April 25-28 

Carthage, TN – The Jackie Wilburn Memorial Spring Sing kicks off April 25 at the Smith County Agricultural Center in Carthage, TN, with several of Southern Gospel Music’s most popular and talented recording artists taking the stage to honor the memory of the late Jackie Wilburn. The event will take place four straight days, April 25 through 28, and will be hosted by Jackie’s son, Jonathan.
“My dad was not only a wonderful, anointed preacher of the Gospel for many years but he was the patriarch of the Wilburns,” Jonathan shares. “He truly ‘walked the walk’ and set a tremendous example for my brothers and me, and it is an honor to carry on the rich heritage that  he set for us.”
In honor of this exciting event, Smith County has deemed the week of April 22 as Southern Gospel Week for Smith County.
In the 1980s, Jackie and his wife, Elaine, began touring and singing with their sons, as The Wilburns. The family achieved national prominence throughout two decades, enjoying such hit songs as “Outside The Gate,” When Dust Shall Sing” and “Resting Place.”

Happy Monday- “God On The Mountain”

Written by scoopsnews on January 7, 2019 – 3:11 am -

McKameys

 

 

Life is easy, when you’re up on the mountain
And you’ve got peace of mind, like you’ve never known
But things change, when you’re down in the valley
Don’t lose faith, for your never alone

For the God on the mountain, is still God in the valley
When things go wrong, he’ll make them right
And the God of the good times, is still God in the bad times
The God of the day, is still God in the night
We talk of faith way up on the mountain
But talk comes easy, when life’s at its best
Now its down in the valleys, trials and temptations
That’s where your faith is really put to the test

For the God on the mountain, is still God in the valley,
When things go wrong, he’ll make them right
And the God of the good times, is still God in the bad times
The God of the day, is still God in the night
The God of the day, is still God in the night

Update on Peg From The McKameys

Written by scoopsnews on January 31, 2018 – 2:08 pm -

Update on Ms. Peg…

As many of you may know, back on December 27, 2017, Peg had triple bypass surgery. She has done and is doing exceptionally well thanks to God for healing and for all of you who have been praying for Peg! Last week, after just 4 weeks from her surgery, her surgeon cleared her to go back on the road!! So, on January 26th Peg and Ruben were able to join the rest of the group and travel to Lenoir, North Carolina, and Peg was able to sing her signature song “God On The Mountain”! Peg said “this was a shot in the arm for her and Ruben to be able to travel and sing a little”. So, needless to say, her and Ruben will be back traveling with the group beginning February 9th, 2018! We give GOD all the glory for what HE has done!! However, as she is still healing she will gradually work back into her “place” on stage! She will be taking things a little each week until her healing is complete!! Peg says, “Thank you to each of you for your prayers, cards and emails, these have really been overwhelming, I love you and appreciate all of these!” So, on that note….Peg and Ruben are back!!

Eli Fortner

From Roger Fortner (Dad)

Here’s an update on Eli:

Just a personal update from Eli and The McKameys concerning Eli’s health — Eli has been slowly experiencing more kidney related health issues and the doctor is concerned that his body could be getting into some trouble and needs help! At this time, they will be putting in a port and starting dialysis to give him some help. We would like to say we appreciate all the prayers that have already went up for Eli and we ask that you continue praying for him, as he will be starting another transplant process in a couple of weeks! We are overwhelmed at the many friends that have stepped up and shown an interest in being tested for a possible donor. After we meet with the transplant team we will know what you will need to do! We love you! Eli said “he hopes to see you all real soon!”
