StowTown Records to Release PART OF THE FAMILY From THE COLLINGSWORTH FAMILY September 6

(Nashville, TN.) September 2, 2011 – StowTown Records (Provident-Integrity Distribution) is proud to announce the release of Part Of The Family from The Collingsworth Family available on September 6, 2011.

Phil and Kim Collingsworth can’t help but smile when fans compare their group to the family singers in “The Sound of Music,” the beloved classic family film. Of course, Phil and Kim only have four children, and are from the state of Ohio, not 1930s Austria. But a family group like this only comes along once in a generation, and when the quality of the music is this rich and timeless, everyone pays attention and tries to find ways to describe them. Ernie Haase, executive producer certainly noticed when they were featured on the Gaither Homecoming tour; he knew immediately that he wanted their compelling and memorable music to be part of the StowTown record label.

As the Collingsworth children have grown into teenagers and young adults, they are becoming award-winning artists in their own right, and Kim Collingsworth is widely known as a show-stopping piano performer. Concertgoers have grown to feel so connected to Phil, Kim, Brooklyn, Courtney, Phillip and Olivia, that they feel almost a “Part of the Family,” appropriately the title of their new CD release. The Collingsworth Family continues to perform all over the world, sharing their story, their music, and their love for God.

The twelve-song project, Part of the Family, was produced by Wayne Haun and features stellar arrangements of songs penned by Bill & Gloria Gaither, Kenna West, Sue C. Smith, Daryl Williams and Lanny Wolf among others. The first single, “Tell The Mountain,” is currently at radio stations across the country.

Excitement, spiritual anointing, family-emphasis, and musical excellence are what you can expect to find when you experience The Collingsworth Family. Over their 25 years of ministry, their boundaries of influence have expanded as they have sung and played all over the United States as well as internationally. Their constant, persistent attention to cutting-edge arranging, musical excellence, and a proper balance of spiritual emphasis are the keys to success God has helped them tap. The family group is a favorite on the Gather Homecoming Tours and seen regularly on the Gaither video series.
