The Jordan Family Band Tells A Story with ‘Reach’

Written by Staff on May 24, 2018 – 10:02 am -

The Jordan Family Band features, from left, Josh Jordan, Randa Jordan, Hutch Jordan, Grant Jordan, Keenan Atkinson and Alex Jordan. 'Reach' will be available from Skyland Records on July 13.

The Jordan Family Band features, from left, Josh Jordan, Randa Jordan, Hutch Jordan, Grant Jordan, Keenan Atkinson and Alex Jordan. ‘Reach’ will be available from Skyland Records on July 13.

Arden, NC. (May 24, 2018) – Gospel group the Jordan Family Band is returning this summer with stories to tell and a hope of spreading God’s word far and wide. The family’s latest album, “Reach,” available July 13 from Skyland Records, tells of the power of God even in the darkest of times. With reminders to always live as an example of Christ, the Jordan Family Band sends a powerful message of what can be accomplished with a little faith.

“When we began the groundwork for this new record, we carefully chose songs we felt were divinely given to us, whether it by our pen or through friends of our ministry. We had no selfish endeavors! We wanted to not only ‘Reach’ the world and those who feel like their situation is helpless, but also the tired and discouraged Christian who is on the brink of giving up!” says Josh Jordan. “It’s not just an album title, ‘Reach’ is our new vision — He reached for us in our most desperate state and delivered us, and He will do the same for you. ”

The group’s first single, “You Better Get Right (Or Ya Gonna Get Left),” features Alex Jordan and Randa Jordan on vocals and has the country gospel feel the family is known for. The upbeat song cautions against thinking we’ve got plenty of time left on Earth and stresses “getting right” with God so you don’t get left behind when Christ returns.

“Shouting In The Middle of My Storm” is another track that highlights the group’s vocal versatility with Josh and Randa Jordan on lead. “I’ve got peace in the middle of my sorrow / There is joy, coming tomorrow” is a reminder that faith can let you rejoice no matter where you are or what’s going on because God has your back.

“Reach” closes with “Old Glory Waves,” a patriotic tune featuring the Voices of Lee, a 15-member a cappella ensemble from Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee.

With energetic vocals and vivid, narrative lyrics, the Jordan Family Band hopes to “Reach” listeners from all walks of life and spread the gospel.

Pre-order “Reach” HERE before its release July 13 from Skyland Records.

The Reed Brothers Sign With NewStep Records

NewStep Records is proud to announce the signing of “The Reed Brothers” to the NewStep roster. The Reed Brothers hail from Louisville, MS and consist of Nick Reed, Boo Reed, Ray Reed and Jeff Reed. For the past several years the Brothers have toured extensively around the southeastern United States singing their unique style of Gospel Music. Concertgoers have enjoyed the tight family harmonies and strong lead vocals as the boys perform their original music. The brothers are prolific songwriters and focus their efforts to pen songs that speak to the common listener, engaging them with subjects that are relatable to their daily lives.

NewStep Records brought in Chuck Day to produce the new Reed Brothers project and they have just returned from Nashville, recording the brand new radio release from the forthcoming album. We think that you will agree that the combination of a great studio, “A” Team musicians, super strong vocals and anointed songs will make for a musical experience that will touch listeners hearts!

The new single from The Reed Brothers is titled: “I’ll Make the Most of It” While in the studio the brothers asked producer Chuck Day to make a guest

appearance on the song. We feel that the combination is a winner and you all will get a chance to hear it soon!

12083710_10206451729109689_1073825924_nRuth Ellen, 91, passed away on October 5th. Back in the early radio days, Ruth Ellen often sang with the Gang on soprano or alto. This was long before The Gang began touring in the early fifties.

Ruth Ellen sang on the first concerts for Wally Fowler, as Anna had just had a son, Greg Gordon. In the late ’70’s Ruth Ellen began recording and touring with the Gang through 1989. She came back in 1994, touring, and recording again.

She was a wonderful singer, and the fans loved her. She loved her fans as well, and loved her work with the CWG. Please keep the family in your prayers.

Chuckwagon Gang

Chuckwagon Gang

Dear Friends and Fans of the Chuck Wagon Gang,

After much prayerful consideration, it is with mixed emotions that I must announce that the time has come for me to leave my position with the Chuck Wagon Gang. I have dearly loved singing for the last 9 ½ years and have loved and appreciated each of you so very much. It has been your love and support that have allowed me to do what I have done thus far and for that I am very grateful. I have made some of the most wonderful friends and have worked with some of the most awesome folks ever over the years. I will miss all of you so very much. God has been so very good to me, but I feel He is now leading me away from the “Gang.” I don’t have any plans as of yet, and I am unsure of what the future holds, but I am leaving it in God’s hands. Hopefully, if God allows, I will see you down the road again. I just want to do whatever it is that He would have me to do. I would ask that you keep me and my family in your prayers as I make this transition. Thanks again for all your love and support- it will never be forgotten. I love and appreciate each of you!

God Bless you,

Julie Hudson

The Dominion Agency Welcomes Music Duo, Zane and Donna King

Written by Staff on September 19, 2014 – 10:41 am -

zane and donnaWaynesville, NC (September 19, 2014) – Michael Davis & Associates is thrilled to welcome the highly acclaimed music duo, Zane And Donna King, to the Dominion Agency.  The couple inked an exclusive booking agreement with the agency today.
Zane and Donna have been working in the music industry full-time, collectively, for 40 years.  Between the two of them, they’ve produced upwards of 400 albums, launched countless careers for some of today’s top Gospel music acts, and celebrated numerous hit songs as songwriters.  Zane owned a record label, Journey Records, which was home to many accomplished artists.  Donna toured for years with one of Christian music’s top Gospel music trios, Hope’s Call.  It seems only fitting that the couple combine their musical gifts and share them, together, with audiences in churches and concert halls wherever God opens the doors.
Michael Davis, president and CEO of Michael Davis & Associates shares, “Two of the most talented people I know are Zane and Donna King.  This dynamic duo will bless you to pieces.  I am very excited they have chosen to take their music ministry on the road and look forward to representing them as their booking agent.”
Their exclusive agreement with the Dominion Agency will be the vehicle by which churches, fans, and event goers can experience, not only the impeccable talent of the duo, but, most importantly, their heart for GOD and their deep love for people.  Donna will also be available for limited solo appearances, including womens’ events, both speaking and singing.
“Many folks know, in addition to making music with my precious wife,  Donna, I am blessed to work fulltime for Compassion International,” expresses Zane. He continues, “I have learned, first hand, that there are many forms of poverty on this mighty big planet. Those in extreme physical poverty are often the most grateful people you’ll ever meet.  One of the most devestating forms of poverty is to have a wealth of possessions while, at the same time, starving spiritually.  My wife and I feel blessed to have an opportunity to offer the hope of Christ, through music, to a hurting world.  We want to help make people smile, breathe, laugh a little, tap their toe, and, most of all, come to decisions that will make their lives richer.”  Zane concludes, “A rich life is not one that contains a large bank account.  It’s found in simply knowing the grace of God and walking closely with Him.”
The duo has already experienced a remarkable response to their music.  Recent radio hits “Hallelujah, Jesus Saves” and “SHINE” both landed in the Top 15 on the Singing News Top 80 charts over the past year.  And, both songs were co-written by Donna.
Their newest single, heading to radio next week, is entitled “No One Like God.”  And that is the message they look forward to expressing to the world.  Donna states, “Truly, there is “NO ONE LIKE GOD.  What a privilege to point others to His love.”
To find out more about hosting Zane and Donna King at your church, conference, or concert event, contact Michael Davis at the Dominion Agency.  You can do so through the website,, or by calling 828-454-5900.

Tammy C. Bogle’s Debut Radio Release, “Mama’s Prayers”

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on June 25, 2014 – 8:44 am -

IMG_6461Branson, MO — Award-winning artist, Tammy C. Bogle’s first radio release, “Mama’s Prayers” has debuted on Cashbox Magazine’s “Christian Country” Chart at #87. The popular song has also debuted on Christian Music Weekly’s “Christian Country” Chart at #2.

Tammy says, “I’m so excited that God is blessing this song, and I pray that its message reaches out to those who need to hear it. I want to say a big ‘thank you’ to all the DJs who are playing this song.”

Penned by Tammy, “Mama’s Prayers” was inspired by God from her personal experience with alcoholism after an 8 year abusive marriage.

“After the marriage ended, I was left broken and my life was shattered,” Tammy explains. “My mom stayed on her knees night and day in prayer for her baby girl, me, and then God picked me up out of the pit I was in. Since then, He has called me to minister to people who are broken and feel like they are nothing and that no one will ever love them. That is my ministry; singing, writing songs and ministering to broken misfits like I once was, telling them that Jesus loves them and He will put their broken lives back together. God loves us misfit toys.”

For more information, please contact Tammy C Bogle at 580-382-1003 or via email at You can connect with Tammy via her website at

About Tammy C. Bogle: Tammy is a multi-award winning singer and songwriter, who loves Jesus and uses every opportunity that the Lord gives her to minister to those who are hurting and need to know that Jesus is there for them. She also has a heart to minister to women. Her testimony is one of tragedies and triumphs, of addiction and abuse, of going from a life in the pit to a life in the palace. She is a wonderful speaker, teacher and ladies evangelist. She wants ladies everywhere to know that we are all God’s princesses and we are all beautiful to the Lord. Her ladies ministry is based on Prov. 31:10. Tammy and her husband, James, are full-time music evangelists who travel Nationwide throughout the year, with their two sons who God also uses in ministry, spreading God’s Word.
