TaRanda & Triumphant Quartet Honored at 50th GMA Dove Awards

Written by Staff on October 18, 2019 – 7:08 pm -

TaRanda Releases The HealingNashville, TN (October 16, 2019) – StowTown Records artists, TaRanda Greene and Triumphant Quartet, were honored with wins at this year’s GMA Dove Awards. TaRanda was honored with Inspirational Song of the Year for “When The Healing Comes.

Triumphant Quartet’s 2019 release, Yes, was named Southern Gospel Album of the Year.

When The Healing Comes” was written by TaRanda, Geron Davis, Wayne Haun and Joel Lindsey and is on her 2018 release The Healing. While the song itself was birthed out of TaRanda’s personal story, it has been a balm for many who suffer from personal tragedies.

TaRanda expressed her gratitude, “I’m still a bit overwhelmed. I didn’t see this one coming. Every nominee in the category was so worthy to win the Dove. I’m grateful to be in such beautiful company, and I’m grateful to have so many amazing people cheering me on. When my name was called, my thoughts scattered, and I failed to say thank you to so many people who helped make this song what it is…people like Nate Goble, my record label, Stowtown Records, Provident Distribution, Jason Webb, Wayne Haun, every musician and singer, Ronnie Brookshire, who spent endless hours behind a console engineering and mixing the song. There are just so many people, from the marketing team to fans, who encourage me with messages about this song. I’m overwhelmed by the love I receive on a daily basis from my husband and my children. They are the heart and soul of what I do. I am a very blessed woman…every day. I’m so grateful to my Heavenly Father for giving me this life and the opportunities that come along in it. He is just so good!”

TaRanda & Triumphant Quartet Honored at 50th GMA Dove AwardsTriumphant Quartet is celebrating their first Dove Award win. Yes was produced by Wayne Haun and Gordon Mote. In addition to being nominated, Triumphant Quartet sang “Jesus is Coming Soon” on the televised program.

Scotty Inman of Triumphant shares, “We are truly blown away. The four of us recently began our 18th year as a group, and the Lord continues to pour out blessings on our ministry. We truly hope this award is a sign of what the songs on the album are doing to help grow the Body of Christ. Again, thank you to the GMA and its voters!”

“It’s difficult to put into words how elated I am today,” says Wayne Haun. “I personally see how hard these artists work to get to the finish line of a project. There might not be blood, but plenty of sweat and tears during the process, so to watch as their fellow GMA members honor them gives me hope that what we do is worth it. Lives are truly changed through the power of this music and the eternal impact of its message.”

The 50th Dove Awards show was live streamed on Sirius XM and will air on TBN on October 20 at 8:00 PM EST.

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound’s Clear Skies Hits No. 1

Written by Staff on February 16, 2018 – 11:25 am -

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Deliver Clear Skies

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound’s Clear Skies Hits No. 1

Nashville, TN (February 16, 2018) – Grammy® nominated and multi-award winning group Ernie Haase & Signature Sound‘s latest project, Clear Skies, is a HIT!

The release debuted at No. 1 the week of release on the Nielsen SoundScan Southern Gospel chart. Lauded by press and fans alike, Clear Skies, has found a home in the heart of listeners across the country, with the latest single – the title track “Clear Skies” – already making an imprint on radio charts.
Clear Skies is available now – in stores and via digital outlets.
The new release is especially meaningful right now, as just a few weeks ago, Tara Younce – sister of Ernie’s wife, Lisa – passed away from cancer. In the midst of preparing for one of the beloved group’s most hopeful releases, Ernie and his family were dealing with a very private pain. As they were starting to promote the new release, Ernie took time off to reflect and grieve with his family.
In his first interview since Tara’s passing, Ernie Haase recently opened up to Faithwire’s Billy Hallowell in an exclusive interview. Click here to read the article.

The highly-anticipated release, on Haase’s own StowTown Records/Provident Distribution, features inspirational and encouraging themes set to out-of-the-box musical moments and masterful production. This release delivers a cornucopia of musical styles and themes from the modern “My Hallelujah” to the 1975 Imperials classic arrangement of “Give Them All To Jesus” to the fresh and appealing “Sailing With Jesus.”
