Nashville, TN   Butler Music Group President, Les Butler, is excited to announce the next phase in the furtherance of his radio career.

2015 marks the 37th year that Les has hosted Southern Gospel and Bluegrass Gospel radio shows all across America, the last 16 of which has been a part of the Solid Gospel Radio Network.  After taking the summer off from producing radio shows, he is happy to announce that he will once again be found on the radio, nationwide.

Les states, “Recently I’ve been approached by multiple radio outlets to host shows on their various stations.  After much prayer, I decided that I would start my own radio programs.  I am pleased to announce that Les Butler and Friends will soon be at a radio station near you.  Les Butler and Friends will produce three different hour-long weekly radio shows with three distinct themes: Bluegrass Gospel, Country Gospel, and Live, From Nashville.”

Les continues, “The first show we will be rolling out is Les Butler and Friends/Bluegrass Gospel.  Initially, it will be heard Saturday mornings at 11 AM EST on The LifeFM Radio Network.  Their network has dozens of FM stations in great Southern Gospel/Bluegrass Gospel-friendly markets, and they’re adding more all the time.  In addition to their terrestrial markets, we will be heard on their online and smartphone streams.  I appreciate the support of Bob McClure – Founder, Rob McClure – President, and Rodney Baucom – Network Director.  I am pleased to align myself with such fine Christian men and professionals in their field.”  Rodney Baucom states, “We’re excited that Les has chosen to follow God’s call.  He has a unique connection with the Bluegrass community of listeners and artists.  We believe the new program is going to be a sensational addition to our programming at the LifeFM.”

Les also said, “I am very excited to announce that Bob McClure and I will be partnering to bring Les Butler and Friends, An Evening of Bluegrass Gospel Music, to concert venues within their listening areas.  We plan to do two or more large events in 2016.”  Bob McClure states, “I congratulate Les Butler in this new phase of his life.  He is a living Wikipedia of Southern Gospel and Bluegrass Gospel Music, having been a Publisher of Singing News Magazine, a TV and radio personality, as well as an accomplished artist/agent/promoter.  He is an icon in the industry of Southern Gospel/Bluegrass Gospel community.  This new venture will help him to reach new heights.”

Les concludes, “Any radio station that would like to carry any, or all, of the three Les Butler and Friends radio shows can email me at les@butlermusicgroup.com or call me at 615-218-0517.  In addition to the new radio shows and live events, BMG has several more major happenings we will be announcing soon.  This is an incredibly exciting time for me and my family.  To say that I am blessed just seems so inadequate.  To God be the glory for great and mighty things!”
