The Appropriately titled 50 is Set to Release July 15th
(Nashville, TN) â€“ If there is one word that describes The McKameys, it would be sincere. Each member of this Southern Gospel singing group is sincere in their love for the Lord, sincere in their love for the music they sing, and sincere in their need to spread the Word to others through their music â€“ which has led them to the most #1 hits in Southern Gospel history and a dedicated following that has stood the test of time. Now we celebrate with them the release of their 50th album.
In The McKameysâ€™ appropriately titled fiftieth album, 50, the blend of numerous positive attributes like sweet simplicity and family harmony and the faith and joy of knowing Jesus are inherently woven throughout this historic recording.
From the powerful â€œIâ€™m Gonna Die on the Battlefieldâ€ to â€œThe Coming of The Lord,â€ there is something for every McKameys fan and follower on this milestone musical project. The album starts with a remake of their very first recorded song, â€œDonâ€™t Forget the Family Prayer,â€ with a special intro that they pulled from the original cut. â€œThere is Jesusâ€ conscientiously sums up what their music ministry has always been.
“It’s the joy of the Lord and the strong message in the songs they hear,” Peg says. “We try to have fresh songs and new encounters with the Lord so we can pass them along to those in need of it.”
50 is the epitome of new musical encounters with the past and the present â€“ an artistic accomplishment that few groups have realized.
The McKameys play about 150 days a year, traveling all over North America from Southern California on up to British Columbia and over to the East Coast, north to New Brunswick and south to Florida. They have had 24 #1 singles and have been honored for having the most #1 hits in Southern Gospel Music. The group has been awarded several Singing News Fan Awards throughout the years with Peg being named Favorite Female Vocalist a remarkable 7 times.
