April 2020 SGN Scoops Magazine

It’s Spring and we are happy to present this fresh issue of SGNScoops Magazine for April 2020. We trust this month of social changes and new beginnings brings you fresh joy and hope in this time of isolation and distancing.

One lady who is experiencing many new beginnings this year is our cover artist, Lauren Talley. From her professional to personal life, Ms. Talley shares all of her news with Justin Gilmore. We know you will be engaged in this feature.
Also new this month, we welcome Andrew Ishee as he starts a series on the beginnings of your favourite artists. Gene McDonald from the Gaither video series is his first guest.
The Chuck Wagon Gang, Autumn Isbell, GloryWay Quartet, Wilburn and Wilburn, and Jeff Parker are also highlighted this month, along with so much more! Take time to read it cover to cover.
This Spring, we hope you take time as well to consider new beginnings in your own life. Jesus Christ came to this earth, lived, died, and rose to life, so you could feel the freedom of an abundant life. He wants to save you, cleanse you, heal you, and lead you to a closer walk with him today. This is a great time to discover what Jesus has for you. Open your Bible and find out what that is!
We hope you enjoy this issue of SGNScoops Magazine. If you have any questions or concerns, please write to me at

Favorite Christmas Memory- Andrew Ishee

Written by scoopsnews on December 18, 2019 – 6:09 am -

   I remember my first “white” Christmas:

     Back in my days with the Kingsmen, I remember inviting Sheree (now my wife) to come down to Mississippi and meet my family.  She drove down to Birmingham, Alabama, and I met her there to drive the rest of the way (it seemed chivalrous at the time).  My family Christmas party was a few days before Christmas Day.

     Sheree stayed with my folks the night of the party, and I had planned to drive her back to Birmingham the next day so that she could get back to her family before Christmas Day.  But the weather got snowy on our return route, and we decided that we’d make the trip back to Tennessee together.  Well, we wound up driving on Christmas Day.  The snow had let-up along I65 as we drove to Nashville, but the countryside was white with snow, and thankfully, the road was clear.  We discovered that the “Waffle House” is the ONLY restaurant open on Christmas Day.

 I had spent every Christmas prior to that in Laurel, MS – Green Christmas only there.  That was my first white Christmas.

-Andrew Ishee “Piano Player”

The release of the ‘Sherry Anne LIVE!’ DVD last week saw its debut at Number 5 on the Billboard Music Video Chart for sales during the week of November 3rd. The project enlisted the talents of producers Dr. Steve Allen and Brian Ledford and project coordinator John Mathis Jr. and was released in partnership with Mansion Entertainment. The live concert includes Michael Booth (Booth Brothers) as the guest soloist along with a cast of the industry’s best musicians and vocalists: Toni Jolene Clay, Landy Ewing, Andrew Ishee, Scott Neubert and Michael Booth.

Sherry Anne live dvdSherry Anne, who has had to overcome hearing-impairment to achieve success as an artist, adds another accolade to her growing list of accomplishments which include numerous award nominations and national charting radio singles. She is an avid lip reader due to her hearing impairment and knows firsthand the importance of being able to see faces and emotions while listening to music. This became an influential part of the decision to undertake a live concert recording. Sherry Anne commented on that decision-making process: “Audiences have told me for years that they love to listen to me sing but even more so, they love to WATCH me sing. And so the DVD idea was born!”

The DVD includes the songs that have become audiences’ favorites from Sherry Anne’s concert performances. It also contains two new songs, plus some of her most requested Christmas songs. Sherry Anne LIVE! is also available as an audio product on CD and includes the full concert performance and testimony, along with “He Heals” performed by Michael Booth. Sherry Anne accompanies Michael in the video performance with sign language interpretation of the song.
