SGN Scoops is back with another Fast Five! Today we feature Crosby Lane, a mixed group from Nashville who highlighted the Diamond Awards stage during the Creekside Gospel Music Convention a short time ago. We welcome Crosby Lane and invite you to learn a little more about these artists!
Crosby Lane is a Nashville-based acoustic, vocal folk group. Since 2012, they have been traveling the country primarily singing hymns. Comprised of Tonja Rose, John and Michaela Lemonis, the group is named for beloved hymn writer, Fanny Crosby, they have a heart for hymns and are dedicated to keeping these great songs alive! They perform with guitars and mandolin, rich harmonies, and fresh new arrangements. They released their debut project, “Story & Song” on Mansion Entertainment earlier this year and the single, “‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus” is at radio now. They are working on a second project and are about to begin a Christmas project.
SGN: What one thing are you most looking forward to in the months ahead?
Michaela: We look forward to traveling the world sharing about God’s ability to take the ordinary and make the extraordinary.
SGN: What is your all-time favorite TV show?
Michaela, John: The Andy Griffith Show.
Tonja: I have two! The Middle and The Waltons.
SGN: Who is your all-time favorite Gospel singer?
Tonja: Amy Grant!
John: I like David Phelps and Michael English, among others. Michaela: There are too many to mention.
SGN: What is the most unique thing a person has brought you at a concert?
John: The most unique gift we have received at a concert has to be the Charles Wesley doll. We call him “Chuck” and he has made several road trips with us. Is that interesting or just plain strange?
SGN: What would you like written on your tombstone?
John: “I told you I wasn’t feeling well!”
Michaela: “1 John 4:7 – Dear Friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and knows God”.
Tonja: “I loved and was loved;” but then I want a push button on my tombstone with the words, ‘PUSH IF YOU THINK YOU GOT THE LAST LAUGH’ and then when it is pushed, it’s a recording of my laugh. (You’d have to hear me laugh to truly appreciate it!)
