Los Angeles, Calif. (Nov. 21, 2012)—Critically acclaimed group Annie Moses Band will make its Grand Ole Opry debut this week, on Friday, November 23 at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. The band is well known for its beautifully energetic shows and highly successful PBS television specials. This all-American premier string pop/folk group, led by singer & violinist Annie and her talented siblings, will perform alongside other musical greats including Crystal Gayle, Bobby Osborne & The Rocky Top X-Press, John Conelee, Jimmy Dickens and The Grascals.

The band is set to perform its current single “Blush,” from Pilgrims & Prodigals, the group’s latest release. Additionally, the group will play their show-stopping rendition of the holiday classic “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” one of the many timeless carols featured on Annie Moses Bands’ upcoming holiday compilation, Annie Moses Band Ultimate Christmas Collection, available nationwide on November 27. Performances will air live at 7pm CT on 650 AM WSM Radio and Sirius XM on Channel 56.

Next week on November 25, fans can also catch the world premiere for their video “Blush” on Great American Country (GAC). The music video was directed by award-winning filmmaker, David Kiern, inside of Tennessee’s glamorous Rippavilla Plantation. Though Rippavilla is a historic mansion infamous for its ghosts, the band saw it as a perfect backdrop for the radio single which marries a nostalgic message to a modern edge.

“Blush” is a song that aims to question our culture’s cynicism and to speak a timeless truth with powerful relevance. The band recognizes that almost everyone in our society has been hurt by broken relationships, and that individuals turn to cynicism rather than a belief in values that create and nurture loving and long-lasting relationships. The song’s message communicates the group’s desire to return to a time when a wounded heart was not an inevitable experience.

Written by SGN Scoops on July 15, 2011 – 2:33 pm -

Washington, DC – Multi-talented recording artist, The Martins will be featured during the weeks of July 18 and July 25 on the popular Daniel Britt & Friends radio program.

The program is also available online at, or via Dish Network Channel 6018.

It’s a New Day for legendary vocal group, The Martins. Their three-year labor of love is complete, and the end result is a brand new recording, appropriately titled New Day. Filled with all new songs, featuring the trio’s unmistakable harmonies, the recording was produced by multi-platinum selling Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus. Released earlier this summer (June 21), the recording marks the first for siblings Judy, Jonathan and Joyce (pictured l-r in attached jpg) in a decade.

During the 1990s, The Martins rose to national and international success, showcasing their stunning and distinctive harmonies before a vast array of audiences, from Bill Gaither’s multi-award winning Homecoming Video and Concert Series to the White House to Carnegie Hall. Over the years, the trio garnered six Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association, a Grammy nomination and multiple hit songs.

After a 10-year hiatus from touring together, the siblings return this year with renewed family bonds, as they take a fresh step forward both musically and spiritually. Energized and excited about the future, the three are thrilled to be back on stage together and are delighted by the early success of New Day, as well as the new Gaither Music Group DVD, entitled The Best Of The Martins.

We’ll follow the journey of these three singing siblings from restroom acoustics to Carnegie Hall! These are very special broadcasts.”

Sirius XM to Eliminate ENLIGHTEN/Southern Gospel Radio From Its Regular Lineup

Written by Scoops Staff on April 26, 2011 – 12:05 pm -

Per programming announcements made this week, satellite radio provider Sirius XM will be relegating their southern gospel station, known as Enlighten, to an internet-only line-up.

For most subscribers to Sirius/XM, this eliminates the ability to listen to Enlighten while driving and causes a rate increase if in fact one wants to access Enlighten via the internet programming or SmartPhone application offered.

According to information on the Sirius XM website:

“enLighten” is moving to channel 805 on SiriusXM Internet Radio, where you can continue to hear great Southern Gospel music from artists like Gaither Vocal Band, Gold City and Inspirations.

If SiriusXM Internet radio is not currently part of your subscription, you can continue to enjoy Christian music on “The Message” (Channel 63) featuring Christian hits, and on “Praise” (Channel 64) where you’ll find Gospel music along with a new weekly show called “The enLighten Hour.”

You can also try SiriusXM Internet Radio FREE* for 30 days or add it to your current plan at any time for a small, additional monthly fee. Go to for complete information.

Southern gospel music fans have already begun to mobilize in protest of this change. To voice your opinion, please visit the”Save Enlighten” Facebook page, where contact information for Sirius XM is also available. It is imperative that protests be made directly to Sirius XM and not just on the FB page in order to be heard.
