Tim Lovelace Brings Musical Comedy to WSM-AM and "Today in Nashville"

Tim Lovelace Brings Musical Comedy to WSM-AM and
“Today in Nashville”

Nashville, Tenn. — Comedian Tim Lovelace has once again brought his musical comedy to major broadcasting outlets in Nashville. Lovelace was featured on WSMV-TV’s popular midday show, “Today in Nashville,” where he performed the title track from his current DVD/CD, Living In A Coffee World. His performance can be viewedHERE. The next stop was at WSM-AM, where Lovelace was guest host on Devon O’Day’s program, “Nashville Today,” for three hours. He performed his musical comedy routines, delivered a lot of talking humor and turned the conversation to the more serious subject of bullying. Lovelace was bullied as a child growing up in Alabama, which spurs him to continue to bring national attention to this issue.

Lovelace has launched this month his “Living in a Coffee World Tour,” with concert dates all across North America. For continued updates about Lovelace, www.timlovelace.com,www.facebook.com/comediantimlovelacewww.twitter.com/timlovelace,www.instagram.com/timlovelacecomedy.

Tim Lovelace Has Successful 2017; Signs with StowTown Records, Major Appearances, No. 16 Chart Debut and First Christmas Musical Miracle in a Manger

Nashville, Tenn.  —- Comedian/Musician, Tim Lovelace, has concluded a very successful 2017 that included the composition of his first Christmas musical, Miracle in a Manger. The project is a joint venture with Lifeway Worship and Daywind Music Publishing, along with arrangements and orchestrations by Dove Award winners Cliff Duren, Camp Kirkland and Phil Nitz. The musical was performed at churches across the country in December and received tremendous responses, where several churches invited Tim to join the choir performances either playing piano or narrating the musical.

“Although I have been writing for many years, this was my first time to write a Christmas musical,” said Lovelace. “I loved the entire process and am very grateful to Rick Shelton and my talented co-writers. Many thanks to the churches around the country that performed Miracle in a Manger during the 2017 Christmas season. I am also excited to be hearing from churches that are planning to do the musical in the 2018 Christmas season.”

Rick Shelton, Vice President of Music Publishing at Daywind Music Group shares, “Tim Lovelace has created a wonderful Christmas experience with stirring songs that share the miracle of God taking His first breath as a baby born in a humble manger. During the recent season, churches from coast-to-coast presented Miracle in a Manger and felt the joy and hope in the message that Jesus not only entered the world but longs to enter our hearts. We are excited that a growing number of choirs will offer Tim’s debut musical, Miracle in a Manger, to their communities in 2018. This one is special. You won’t want to miss it.”

There were additional milestones for Lovelace last year that started with signing with StowTown Records. The label released his first project, Living in a Coffee World, in August, which resulted in a No. 16 debut on Billboard’s Comedy chart. The DVD/CD was taped at a live performance at Lee University in Tenn., and provided listeners a front row seat to his unique brand of humor that has kept people around the world laughing for three decades. Lovelace performed these family-favorite routines on WSM-AM radio in Nashville, Tenn., for the staff of Country Aircheck, and recorded them as video vignettes for CCM Magazine. He also made concert appearances with such high-profile artists as the Oak Ridge Boys, Josh Turner, High Valley, Bill Anderson, Jimmy Fortune. Lovelace also had cover features with Singing News Magazine and Faith Filled Family Magazine.

Following such a successful 2017, Lovelace will continue his career’s momentum this year.  Already he has scheduled “Living in a Coffee World Tour” concert dates all across North America.

Daywind Music Publishing Continues To Expand Roster

Daywind Music Publishing Continues To Expand Roster

Daywind Music Publishing Continues To Expand Roster

Hendersonville, TN – Daywind Music Publishing has added songwriter Janice Crow to its ever-growing family of award-winning talent.

A regular attendee of Sue Smith’s Write About Jesus conference, Janice Crow burst onto the scene approximately six years ago when she won the writing competition that led to a variety of open doors within the songwriting community.  Those opportunities included song pitches to prominent music publishers, as well as co-writes with some of the leading writers in the genre.  A writing session with Lee Black and Sue Smith led to the creation of a choral anthem entitled “The Name,” as well as the song “Amazing God,” that would go unrecorded for several years.  In 2015, the song found a home with Triumphant Quartet, who took it to #1 on the Singing News Chart, and was awarded Song of the Year by the Singing News Fan Awards.  With her increasing momentum, Janice was a natural fit into the Daywind roster of exclusive staff writers.  To bring the story full circle, she signed her contract with Daywind Music Publishing during Write About Jesus, exactly six years after she won the songwriting contest.

In addition to Janice Crow, Daywind Music Publishing has signed songwriting agreements with a number of talented writers this year, including Lee Black, Tim Lovelace, Devin McGlamery and Brandon Sharp.  Award-winning writers Dianne Wilkinson, Sue C. Smith, John Rowsey and Belinda Smith have all extended their relationship with DMP.

Daywind Music Publishing services an impressive roster of acclaimed songwriters including Lee Black, Matthew Browder, Jason Clark, Jason Cox, Janice Crow, Aaron and Amanda Crabb, Adam Crabb, Gerald Crabb, Chris Cron, Ricky Free, Marty Funderburk, Karen Peck Gooch, Joseph Habedank, Tim Lovelace, Devin McGlamery, Kyla Rowland, John Darin Rowsey, Brandon Sharp, Belinda Smith, Sue C.
