Nashville, TNÂ What a great start of a fresh season for Mark Wheeler and the Marksmen Quartet!Â Recently, the music industry lost a great friend, Steve Gulley, and from that great loss came a moving tribute from the pen of Mark Wheeler.
Mark Wheeler says, “I was thinking about Steve the day he passed and sat down to write him a song (IÂ had written with him but never written for him) and I just said what was on my heart and that’s what came out.Â I’ll see him in that Resurrection Morning.”
This moving song became the catalyst for a monumental recording featuring many top industry vocalists and friends of Steve Gulley, Mark Wheeler (Marksmen),Â Vince Gill, Barry Abernathy & Jim Van Cleve (Appalachian Road Show),Â Tim Stafford (Blue Highway), Doyle Lawson (Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver), Phil Ledbetter (All-Stars of Bluegrass), and Jason Moore (Sideline)!Â The artists called themselves Sacred Reunion and the song, “In the Resurrection Morning“Â Â made its premier October 15th on SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction and is now available for streaming! All proceeds will benefit the family of Steve Gulley.
Mark Wheeler & the Marksmen also have a new 10-song project titled, “Mark Wheeler, The Singer, His Stories, His Songs” that will be available on November 3rd on the Family Music Bluegrass label!Â Â This is a compilation of some of Mark’s best songs- both new and old- and includes the stories behind each of the songs.
