TaRanda Releases The HealingNashville, TN (October 16, 2019) – StowTown Records artists, TaRanda Greene and Triumphant Quartet, were honored with wins at this year’s GMA Dove Awards. TaRanda was honored with Inspirational Song of the Year for “When The Healing Comes.

Triumphant Quartet’s 2019 release, Yes, was named Southern Gospel Album of the Year.

When The Healing Comes” was written by TaRanda, Geron Davis, Wayne Haun and Joel Lindsey and is on her 2018 release The Healing. While the song itself was birthed out of TaRanda’s personal story, it has been a balm for many who suffer from personal tragedies.

TaRanda expressed her gratitude, “I’m still a bit overwhelmed. I didn’t see this one coming. Every nominee in the category was so worthy to win the Dove. I’m grateful to be in such beautiful company, and I’m grateful to have so many amazing people cheering me on. When my name was called, my thoughts scattered, and I failed to say thank you to so many people who helped make this song what it is…people like Nate Goble, my record label, Stowtown Records, Provident Distribution, Jason Webb, Wayne Haun, every musician and singer, Ronnie Brookshire, who spent endless hours behind a console engineering and mixing the song. There are just so many people, from the marketing team to fans, who encourage me with messages about this song. I’m overwhelmed by the love I receive on a daily basis from my husband and my children. They are the heart and soul of what I do. I am a very blessed woman…every day. I’m so grateful to my Heavenly Father for giving me this life and the opportunities that come along in it. He is just so good!”

TaRanda & Triumphant Quartet Honored at 50th GMA Dove AwardsTriumphant Quartet is celebrating their first Dove Award win. Yes was produced by Wayne Haun and Gordon Mote. In addition to being nominated, Triumphant Quartet sang “Jesus is Coming Soon” on the televised program.

Scotty Inman of Triumphant shares, “We are truly blown away. The four of us recently began our 18th year as a group, and the Lord continues to pour out blessings on our ministry. We truly hope this award is a sign of what the songs on the album are doing to help grow the Body of Christ. Again, thank you to the GMA and its voters!”

“It’s difficult to put into words how elated I am today,” says Wayne Haun. “I personally see how hard these artists work to get to the finish line of a project. There might not be blood, but plenty of sweat and tears during the process, so to watch as their fellow GMA members honor them gives me hope that what we do is worth it. Lives are truly changed through the power of this music and the eternal impact of its message.”

The 50th Dove Awards show was live streamed on Sirius XM and will air on TBN on October 20 at 8:00 PM EST.

Johnson City, Tennessee – Prominent concert promotions company, IMC has announced plans to present a new Praisefest event in Branson, MO, in the fall of 2020. Eight years ago the successful promotions team conceived the idea of presenting an exciting weekend of Gospel music in the Ozark Mountains town of Branson, Missouri, a city that is famously known for its diverse entertainment theaters. That first year the event took place at the state-of-the-art Mansion Theatre.

Due to the overwhelming success of the event, which has been held annually each Spring for the past seven years, IMC Concerts has announced plans to  produce a Praisefest event that will also take place in the Fall of the year. The new Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat will take place October 26 through 28, 2020, and will also be held at the Mansion Theater.
“We think this new event will be a great choice for people who have told us their schedules simply will not allow them to come to our Spring event,” states IMC President Landon Beene. “We also believe many of the people who attend Praisefest Branson every year in March will want to come back again for the Fall Retreat because they love it so much.”
The 2020 Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat will include performances by such popular recording artists as Greater Vision, The Triumphant Quartet, The Hoppers, The Isaacs, The Whisnants, The Perrys, Brian Free & Assurance, The Nelons, The Ball Brothers, Joseph Habedank and The Erwins. Renowned speaker, Jim Cymbala, Pastor of The Brooklyn Tabernacle in Brooklyn, N.Y., will also be featured, as well as popular singer/songwriter and Christian comedian, Mark Lowry. “We’re really excited to be able to provide another opportunity for people to get together for a few days to enjoy some great Gospel music, lots of laughs, great fellowship and wonderful worship experiences in a unique atmosphere,” states Greater Vision’s Gerald Wolfe.
“This event has the potential to be the largest Gospel music event of its kind in the Midwest during the Fall season,” Beene states. “We are expecting seating to fill quickly so we are recommending people reserve their seats sooner, rather than later.” Registrations for this new event will begin Monday, October 7, 2019.
Make plans now to be a part of the first ever 2020 Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat. Complete information regarding the event is available at www.imcconcerts.com or www.PraisefestBranson.com.
