Pauline Patterson

(Corbin, KY) Pauline Patterson, owner of Patterson Promotions, announces this week her need to recruit Evie Hawkins, owner of EHA-Nashville, to manage her personal music ministry. Most Gospel Music fans may know Pauline from her many years of providing successful radio promotional services to hundreds of recording artists. Many who know Pauline as being a radio promoter may not realize she has had a solo ministry of her own that dates back before her radio promotions company was launched. She actually has been in the ministry for 35 years and has worn many hats in Southern Gospel Music. Some of her prior experience includes being a DJ host of her own Good Morning Gospel Show at WFSR in Harlan, Ky. for about two and a half years; a concert promoter; and now owns and operates the radio promotions company, Patterson Promotions. In addition, Pauline owns the Southern Gospel Times Magazine, which is the only fan-voted top 40 chart of its nature. Pauline notes, “I’m excited and relieved about getting Evie Hawkins to represent me with management. I want to be able to continue my calling to sing and to make sure I am still 100% on fire to handle my radio promotions for those I represent. Evie and I have been very good friends for quite a few years now, and I feel I’m in qualified hands with her taking the reigns of my music ministry.” Evie notes, “It’s simply an honor to manage Pauline’s ministry. She has phenomenal talent and a gift to nurture, embrace, and bless. I am so excited to be a part of Pauline’s team!”

The call to continue her personal music ministry has not been an overnight decision. She has never discontinued her ministry, but says she no longer has the time to manage it, as she wants to continue to focus on the artists she represents as a priority.

Pauline has never forgotten the call God has placed in her own life as a singer. She has recorded 8 projects and has released numerous songs to national radio with charting success in all major charts. Through her singing, speaking, radio releases, and promotions of her clients to national radio, she strives to “reach souls.”

Pauline is available for church ministry, concerts and Ladies Conferences. She states, “God has given me a song to sing, and if you are blessed by it – Praise Him!”

Some of her notable recordings are Her Roots Run Deep, The Journey Will Be Sweet, Heaven Will Be Worth The Journey, I Know The Man, Almost Home, and I Fell Down.
