Leaving Louisville: Twenty Years of NQC

Written by Staff on September 9, 2013 – 11:42 am -

nqcnewlogoChange is always hard and the NQC Board made a bold step twenty years ago when they announced the move from Nashville to Louisville for Gospel Music’s favorite yearly event.

From scheduled sings on the Belle of Louisville to concerts in the downtown square; from impromptu songs in various area restaurants to special gatherings in local hotels; from Elvis sightings to Uncle Sam in the Exhibit Hall, there are many unforgettable moments for the Gospel music fan at NQC.

As a writer for SGM Radio and SGN Scoops, I’ve had the opportunity to interview many interesting people at NQC.

Over the years, I have been privileged to interview such artists as Karen Peck,  Kim Hopper,   Susan Whisnant,Marshall Hall,  Jim Mahalick, Shelly Brown of The Browns, Wayne Haun, Jeff Pearles, The Apostolic Boys, The Skyline Boys, The Prophets, Rambo McGuire, The Booth Brothers, Mark Trammell Quartet, Greater Vision, Legacy Five, Triumphant Quartet, Brian Free and Assurance, and Jonathan and Jordan Wilburn, among others.

Many of these artists wouldn’t have the time to sit with an interviewer during an ordinary concert setting. NQC is also the opportune time for fans to also talk with their favorite singers. What a great opportunity it is to attend NQC and be able to sit down with the makers of the music!

 

SGM Radio and SGN Scoops would like to extend a special thank you to the board of the National Quartet Convention for continuing on a tradition that began many years ago, for making the necessary decisions for the growth of the festival and for embracing artists, fans and industry alike as we celebrate together our music and our faith.

 

We look forward to 2014 in Pigeon Forge!

 

****As a fan who attended the first Louisville NQC, I have many memories of the National Quartet Convention at Freedom Hall. I’m sure our readers do as well, and I invite you to submit these memories for posting here this week. Please submit your NQC thoughts and pictures to lorraine@sgnscoops.com

The Skyline Boys Announce Exciting Changes

Written by SGN Scoops on August 29, 2013 – 3:34 pm -

imageNashville, TN (August 29th, 2013) – Powerhouse quartet, the Skyline Boys, are pleased to announce exciting changes and happenings with the group.
The first is the return of one member and the addition of another.  Outstanding tenor singer, Jodi Hosterman, is back with the Skyline Boys. The group is thrilled to welcome him, along with a brand new addition, lead singer, Brian Alvey.  Alvey, who is new to the Skyline Boys, is not at all new to Gospel music.  Both gentlemen have vast experience and tremendous talent.  The two, along with bass singer and group owner, Dennis Powers, and baritone singer, Chris Little, are excited about the days, months, and years ahead as they strive together to serve God and share the music that tells the story of His love.
The latest great news for the prominent Southern Gospel Quartet is a brand new, long term booking agreement with the acclaimed Dominion Agency (one entity of the mutil-faceted Michael Davis & Associates).  Dennis Powers shares, “God is doing things we couldn’t do and we are very excited about being with Michael Davis at Dominion Agency. We have a new project being released at NQC called ” Favorite Hymns and Classics Vol. 2 with special guest Squire Parsons helping us on ” Beulah Land.  Everything we do is only possible because of the hope of Christ and our prayer is that every door He leads us through will lead us and others closer to Him.”
Another highlight is that the group is back in the studio at Crossroads with producer, Jeff Collins, working on a dynamic new recording. Collins expresses, “It’s great to be working again, in the studio here at Crossroads, producing the Skyline Boys, with Dennis, Chris, and new members Jodi Hosterman and Brian Alvey. I’m excited with the tracks we recently recorded and look forward to the upcoming vocal sessions at the end of September. This line up of singers promises to be one of the strongest yet for the quartet. In our preproduction sessions I’ve been blown away by the ability of this group of guys. I’ve known and worked with Jodi, Brian, Chris and Dennis in different groups before but there seems to be a special and unique blend that this specific group possesses. I can’t wail until we get the project completed so folks can hear this fantastic quartet!”
The group’s current single “Cool Drink Of Water” is now playing and climbing the charts on Southern Gospel radio around the world. Be listening for it and be watching for more great things to come from this quartet.
