PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (September 26, 2018) –  It was a terrific Thursday filled with music and message at NQC. The day started bright and early with morning chapel service as the Mark Trammell Quartet and Mike Speck led the crowd in worship, followed by a message from one of the most dynamic preachers today, C.T. Townsend.
Moving forward into the day, Dennis Swanberg gave convention-goers a laugh-break with his comedy.

Next up was Bill Gaither and his Homecoming Friends, filling the LeConte Center with classic songs made popular on the Gaither videos.

The evening concerts were hosted by Josh Franks. Tonight’s performers were: Gaither Vocal Band, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Hoppers, Legacy Five, Jonathan Wilburn, Gold City, Ball Brothers, Greater Vision, Tribute Quartet, Mark Trammell Quartet, Jim Brady Trio, Dr. David Jeremiah, Primitive Quartet, Three Bridges, Kingdom Heirs. Power half-hour performances by Tim Menzies, Torchmen, Jordan Family Band, Debra Perry & Jaidyn’s Call
Among tonight’s highlights were the classic harmony of the Gaither Vocal Band, and the comedy of Bill Gaither and his sidekick, Kevin Williams and the moving testimony of Josh Townsend – pianist for Legacy Five – as he told of suffering abuse at the hands of his father in the womb before he was even born. The abuse left his twin dead before birth and Josh suffered a stroke before being delivered. Due to this, doctors told his mother that he would never have use of his left hand, to which Josh testified tonight – “they were wrong.” The crowd – with tears streaming down their face – gave Townsend a standing ovation after he performed the song, “God’s Been Good.”

“Good News Never Gets Old” off of Three Bridges’ Our Story reminds that no matter how long ago Christ lived, the power of His message is carried on through the Bible and the generations who continue to preach it. It’s an open invitation for anyone to discover God’s goodness.

Listen to “Good News Never Gets Old” HERE.

The Wisecarvers want fans to see the likeness of Christ with "Silhouette"

“Silhouette,” the title track from The Wisecarvers’ upcoming album, is an upbeat tune written by Kaila Wisecarver and features Chase Wisecarver with a strong lyric. It reminds us that each day we have the opportunity to be the light in a dark world.

Listen to “Silhouette” HERE.

Steve Ladd

Steve Ladd

“The Thing About A Valley,” the first single from Steve Ladd’s Come Up Clean, sets the tone for the project with its contemporary, upbeat music and message that “the thing about a valley” is that it reminds you to look up to God in times of darkness.

Listen to “The Thing About A Valley” HERE.

All three projects will be released September 28 from Crossroads and are available for pre-order now.

About Three Bridges
Three Bridges’ music is rooted in traditional “Southern gospel” and “black gospel” music. This blended style has made Three Bridges an internationally-acclaimed Gospel group — one that is known for tight harmonies, a unique vocal style, an exciting and energy packed stage presence and, most importantly, for spreading the joy of the Good News of Christ. They have entertained and ministered to millions through their recordings, TV appearances and live shows — which is why Three Bridges has quickly become one of the most prominent Gospel groups in Christian music today. Three Bridges has enjoyed great radio success on the Southern Gospel Music Charts, including seven top 10′s and three #1′s. The trio consists of Elliott McCoy (founder and baritone), Shannon Smith (lead) and Jeremie Hudson (tenor). Although from varied backgrounds and hailing from different parts of the country, God brought these three men together for His purpose and glory. They minister wherever God calls them to spread His Word through music.

About The Wisecarvers
Celebrating over a decade in ministry, Dove Award nominated group, The Wisecarvers, are steadily becoming known as one of Christian music’s most dynamic groups. What started as singing a few songs at family reunions and local churches has now blossomed into a worldwide ministry, reaching not only the United States, but into Puerto Rico, Canada, and the Netherlands. This tight knit family has released a steady stream of chart topping singles, including originally penned songs “Just To Save Me,” “Turn Back Time,” “I Need You,” “Falling In Place”, “Plain And Simple”, and Singing News Top 10 radio hits “Don’t You Think You Ought To Worship Me” and “It Was Jesus!” With songwriting being such a large aspect of the group’s ministry, it allows them to share their personal stories and testimonies. Each member has a unique writing style but enjoys coming together to write as a team, drawing from their individual experiences. The Wisecarvers have been invited to perform as Main Stage Artist at Southern Gospel’s largest gathering, the National Quartet Convention, and at Dolly Parton’s exciting theme park, Dollywood! However, you’ll find them most often at churches across the country, sharing the message that God has laid on their hearts. With a special emphasis on ministering to other families, they have hosted their annual “It’s A Family Thing” Smoky Mountain Weekend Getaway since 2015. The retreat provides a place for not only families, but couples, youth groups and friends to reconnect with each other and refocus on their relationship with Christ. This event has become a staple of their ministry.

About Steve Ladd
As early as five years old while growing up in Dayton, Ohio, Steve Ladd felt the call of God to minister through song.  The son of an evangelist, the youngster would mature to become one of the most well-liked and respected group member for some of America’s most award-winning Christian music ensembles like Gold City and The Anchormen.  Although still considered a young artist, Ladd has spent the last four years traveling extensively both domestically and internationally. Performing inspirational songs like “Preach the Word” has become a personal anthem of encouragement Ladd takes wherever he goes and he reports “God moves and lives that are broken and hurting are leaving changed and encouraged at my services.” Professionally, Ladd has been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, nominated for “New Artist of the Year,” has had five Top 40 Singles and on release day, and his latest album, No Excuses, No Regrets was in the Top 20 chart for iTunes Christian music. Steve, his wife and two children are also ministry partners with Compassion International. While the beginning of an extraordinary journey started with his family, evolved into being an integral part of some of the most award-winning Christian ensembles, the last few years as a solo artist have proven the Lord’s faithfulness in his family, his ministry, and his life.

Three Bridges tells “Our Story”

Written by Staff on July 30, 2018 – 6:52 am -

Three Bridges tells "Our Story"

Three Bridges tells “Our Story”

Arden, NC. (July 27, 2018) – Three Bridges is proclaiming that God’s word is for all generations and all people with their upcoming album, Our Story. With energetic vocals and poignant reminders of what God can do, Three Bridges brings the power of faith, mercy and grace to the forefront of their music. Check out their website here.

The first single, “Good News Never Gets Old,” available August 3, reminds that no matter how long ago Christ lived, the power of His message is carried on by the Bible and the generations who continue to preach it. It’s an open invitation for anyone to discover God’s goodness.
“My Story,” which inspired the album title, describes how our story and Christ’s story are intertwined. Ours cannot exist without His. This song was first made popular by Contemporary Christian Music artists Big Daddy Weave and Three Bridges have added their touch to it.

With soulful harmonies and just a touch of country to their sound, Three Bridges continues the theme set in the lyrics by creating music that will appeal to several generations, further proving we can all be part of Christ’s story.

“Something MUCH greater, than our talent, expectations and excitement has been birthed into this project. As soon as all the recordings were completed, we instantly became aware that God had answered our sincere prayers for Him to anoint this project for His glory. His answer to our prayers replaced our excitement with humility,” says Elliott McCoy, baritone singer. “The feedback we’ve received from the ‘sneak-peek’ listening party was greater than we’d anticipated. People were telling us that the music ‘fed their hungry souls with encouragement and hope’ and that they had ‘never felt God’s presence so intensely when they listened to the music alone in a quiet room’. Only God can touch His people like that, we can not. That realization has been staggering and extremely humbling.”

Three Bridges tells "Our Story"Our Story will be available from Sonlite Records on September 28 and is available for pre-order now, HERE.

Jimmy Reno reviews Three Bridges new CD, “Hymns and Classics Renewed”

Written by Staff on August 17, 2017 – 2:18 pm -

Three Bridges

Three Bridges

Three Bridges released “Soldiers,” their critically-acclaimed debut album, in 2002. It may be surprizing to some to realize that after the past 15 years of their ministry going strong and enjoying numerous album releases, this current CD marks the first time they have released a hymns project.

 

“Hymns and Classics Renewed” is the title of the debut hymns project from the group. The album contains well-known hymns done in the soulful stylings Three Bridges has become known for. The album features the current lineup of Jeremie Hudson, Shannon Smith and Elliott McCoy.

 

Three Bridges release "Hymns and Classics Renewed"

Three Bridges release “Hymns and Classics Renewed”

This new project kicks things off with “There’s Power in the Blood.” The arrangement is upbeat and employs an edgy, soulful feel. It’s definitely a fresh arrangement for the familiar hymn. The next cut is “The Old Rugged Cross.” This is a straightforward, mellow arrangement of the well-known ballad, featuring solid vocals with tight harmonies. Baritone Elliott McCoy and Shannon Smith do a nice job on this one.

 

“The Love of God,” which features tenor Jeremie Hudson, is a ballad that is both well-orchestrated and delivers emotional vocals. This is a solid contribution to the project.

 

The Dallas Holm classic, “Rise Again,” which won a Dove Award in 1977 as Song of The Year, has been included, with the trio putting their own style on the popular tune. Lead singer Shannon Smith is featured on this one, and he delivers a solid vocal performance. This is a powerful arrangement of the song that audiences and fans are sure to love.

 

Three BridgesThe popular gospel classic penned by Mylon Lefevre in 1970, “Old Gospel Ship,” is another highlight from the project. The song is upbeat, and you will find yourself singing along in no time.

 

The group has re-cut a fan-favorite song from their debut mainline album in 2002 called, “The Captain.” This is a moving ballad with tight harmonies that fans of the group are already well familiar with.

 

Overall, this first hymns offering from the group is a solid effort. The album Three Bridgescontains both lively, upbeat tunes and ballads that stir emotion. The trio infuses their blend of soulful, edgy Gospel into well-known timeless classics. It produces a sound that Southern Gospel fans are sure to enjoy.
