NASHVILLE, Tenn.â€”Leading pastor, author and recording artist Matthew Hagee takes center stage for A New Season, his March 18 Difference Media/Capitol Christian Distribution solo debut. Produced by Michael Sykes (Oak Ridge Boys, Gaither Vocal Band), the project features 11 Inspirationally-focused country selections.
Highlights of A New Season include the debut single, â€œI Donâ€™t Want To Get Adjustedâ€; the Hagee co-penned songs â€œThis Ainâ€™t Nothinâ€™â€ and â€œMy Nominationâ€; and â€œThatâ€™s Jesus,â€ which was co-written by Hageeâ€™s father, internationally-renowned evangelist Pastor John Hagee. The project also showcases a new arrangement of the beloved classic â€œThe Day He Wore My Crown,â€ featuring guest contributions from Larry Stewart and David Innis of legendary country group Restless Heart.
â€œI constantly am trying to encourage people that God is a God of new beginnings and second chances,â€ Hagee says of the projectâ€™s theme. â€œRegardless of what theyâ€™ve gone through, if theyâ€™re breathing, Godâ€™s got better things in store. Itâ€™s a new season. Thereâ€™s something better waiting for everybody.â€
