Written by SGN Scoops Staff on January 11, 2012 – 9:47 pm -

Nashville, TN  Award winning songwriter, Tery Wilkins, has reached an agreement with Catacomb Music.

“I am beyond thrilled to partner with Scott and the Catacomb Music Family”, said Tery Wilkins. “I have known Scott for a while now and his heart for ministry speaks volumes to me and to anyone who has ever had the privilege to know him. I’ve purposely waited for the right management team to come alongside and partner with me. I am absolutely beside myself with excitement about how God knows the perfect timing and the right players to team up with when it’s time for destiny. I have kept myself out of the music scene for a while now since my days with N’Harmony, but after much soul-searching hours of prayer, I feel its time to unleash my music on the world once more”

After 10 years Tery is in the process of recording a debut Praise & Worship project with several “special” guests, from SG & CCM, worshipping with him. Produced by Tery’s long-time friend, David Browning (Avalon) this project is holding nothing back.

Tery was recently a recipient of a Prestigious BMI Award for most radio played song. He was also nominated for a Dove Award in 2010. Tery was also a part of two of Integrity Music’s Don Moen Worship Projects recorded live at CBN. Tery has written exclusively for Gaither Music Company, Crossroads Music and currently Brentwood Benson/Joel Lindsey. A few of his songs are; “I AM” (Hoppers) “Joyful Morning” (Hoskins Family), The Answer Is Christ (Talley Trio), Love Called My Name (Ivan Parker), and the best is yet to come.

“I have known Tery & have loved his songs for many years” said Scott Lucas. “Tery is one of Gospel’s top songwriters & Catacomb Music is elated to add Tery Wilkins to the Catacomb Music family, along with,,,, ”

“Change is hard, but change is good,” continued 2nd Generation’s Elaine Robinson. “That means God is going to do something new. We are excited about the new year ahead of us. We once again will put our extravagant faith into action, and we are expecting God’s favor in everything we need.”

Rocky Logan said, “It has been such a great joy traveling with 2nd Generation. Sometimes in life we have to make difficult decisions, and this has been one of those. After much prayer and consideration, I believe this is the right decision for me at this time. God has placed a calling on my life, and I will continue to follow that call wherever doors open. I want to thank Brenda and Elaine for giving me the opportunity to travel and minister with them. I will miss all the fun times we had on the road together! I know God will continue to bless 2nd Generation in all they do”
