Pray For The Easter Family

From James Easter

Please pray for the family of my brother, Ed, who just went home to be with Jesus this morning. Our hearts are broken but we are rejoicing that he is with his Savior never to hurt again. Please pray for Ann & family during this difficult time. We all loved him so much & await the day when will be together forever.

A&G Entertainment Announces Gerald Crabb’s Gospel Fest

Written by SGN Scoops on January 25, 2014 – 6:13 am -

photo (41)Ripley, Mississippi (Jan 20, 2014)  Gerald Crabb and Alisa Asbury of A&G Entertainment are pleased to announce plans are underway for Southern Gospel’s newest Gospel Music event, Gerald Crabb’s Gospel Fest. Gospel Music artists and fans will gather on Labor Day weekend 2014, August 28, 29, 30 and 31st, at the Dalton Trade and Convention Center in Dalton, Georgia to experience the best in Southern Gospel Music, Crabb-style! Gerald Crabb commented, “I am so excited about our first Gerald Crabb’s Gospel Fest. It will feature morning worship services that will include special guests, artist seminars, a talent search, and lots of great Gospel music. It will be very similar to the Crabb Fest that was held in years past in Owensboro, Kentucky. You will not want to miss this event.”

In the mid 90’s, Crabb Fest was launched in a church parking and grew into a four-day major event with the Saturday night attendances reaching 5,000 or more. Several artists such as Joseph Habedank and Josh Franks were discovered at Crabb Fest talent contests and many memories were made as the best artists in all of Gospel Music performed.  “Everyone looked forward to Crabb Fest each year,” Crabb stated. “It was a great time to fellowship with one another, and to be spiritually uplifted as well as a time to enjoy great music. I believe Southern Gospel music fans are going to love that we are bringing back the spirit of Crabb Fest to our new event.”

During Gerald Crabb’s Gospel Fest there will also be afternoon showcases featuring regional artists. “We were thrilled with the response from artists from many states wanting to participate in this year’s event,” Alisa Asbury remarked. “These groups are greatly talented and have thriving music ministries. It is a pleasure to help them expand their fan-base and give them opportunities to take their ministries to a new level. We’re also excited to host a talent contest that will allow rising new artists a chance to expose their talents to industry professionals.”

The evening performance line-up is stellar.  Thursday night’s concert will feature the Grammy award winning artist, Jason Crabb. On Friday evening, the Gaither Vocal Band’s new lead singer, Adam Crabb will perform along with Crabb Family vocalist, Terah Crabb Penhollow and the popular duo, Josh and Ashley Franks.  Saturday’s schedule includes multi award winning Jeff and Sheri Easter, The Freemans and Weston and Christy Hinson. On Sunday morning, legendary Gerald Crabb will wrap up the weekend with a prayer breakfast and concert.

Ticket prices are $20 per day, $55 for a 3 day package, $80 for all 3 days plus Sunday morning’s prayer breakfast and concert with Gerald Crabb. To purchase tickets, visit or call 1-877-772-5425. For more information about Gerald Crabb’s Gospel Fest, visit

GRAMMY®-Nominated Family Group Jeff & Sheri Easter Release New Music with Eyes Wide Open

Written by SGN Scoops on September 21, 2012 – 1:54 pm -

Gospel Music Mainstays Hit the Airwaves to Support New Recording, Celebrate Award and Announce Upcoming
2nd Annual Paint Your Town Pink Campaign
NASHVILLE, Tenn.–September 21, 2012—Multiple award-winning and GRAMMY®-nominated Jeff & Sheri Easter, of Lincolnton, GA, have just released an all-new studio recording.  Eyes Wide Open (Spring Hill Music Group) was produced by Jeff and Sheri Easter, veteran producer Greg Cole and Jeff & Sheri’s son, Madison Easter, who made his debut as a co-producer with the new release.
Eyes Wide Open incorporates the country-styled Gospel harmonies and hints of bluegrass for which the group has been known since its inception and celebrates their family heritage, both past and present.  Sheri re-recorded a classic Mahalia Jackson ballad “Standing Here Wondering” that her mother, Polly Lewis Copsey, a member of the legendary Lewis Family, recorded during her lauded career.  In turn, Sheri’s daughter Morgan paid homage to Sheri on the new, down-home recording with a re-make of Sheri’s noted ballad “I Wonder If He Ever Cries.”
Keeping things “all in the family,” Jeff performed the tune “I Won’t Have to Worry Anymore,” which is the first radio single from the new release, with a guest vocal from his father, James Easter, a member of the classic Gospel bluegrass group The Easter Brothers.  James, who is now 80 years old, also joined the group for a special performance of the song on the main stage at the 2012 National Quartet Convention (NQC).
“Daddy played ‘I Won’t Have to Worry Anymore’ to Mama shortly before she left her tired, broken body here to live in her new one in heaven,” explained Jeff.  “I wanted him to join me in recording this song for the release.  It has always meant a great deal, but now this song has even a greater meaning to both of us.”
Other song titles on Eyes Wide Open include “Love Is,” “Anything But Happy,” “It Must Have Been You,” “Sitting on Top of the World,” “I’ll Take It,” “A Little Bit of Sunshine,” “A Good Old Gospel Song” and “There Is a Purpose.”
The family ties continue on the new recording as Sheri and Madison Easter co-wrote their first song together–“I Know How It Feels to Survive,” which commemorates Sheri’s victory over breast cancer, a topic about which Sheri remains passionate and active.
“There is nothing like living with eyes wide open,” described Sheri, who is now a four-year cancer survivor.  “There is nothing like living with perspective and being able to always see the good in every moment of life.  I am thankful that I had a wonderful support system of my family and all our wonderful friends throughout the country and the world.  I know all our fans can help make a difference in the lives of others who are facing breast cancer.”
Those fans will have a chance to do just that with Jeff & Sheri’s upcoming 2nd Annual Paint Your Town Pink Campaign.  For all of their concerts during the month of October, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, they are asking everyone to wear pink to create awareness for breast cancer.  The group will also be wearing pink nightly, and a portion of their concerts will honor cancer survivors and recognize local cancer care clubs in efforts to raise funds for these organizations.
Eyes Wide Open, distributed exclusively by EMI CMG Distribution, is available now at retail stores and online stores everywhere.  The release comes on the heels of Sheri being honored by fans as the 2012 Alto Singer of the Year at last week’s NQC Awards in Louisville, Ky.
The group premiered songs from the new recording recently on “The Grand Ole Opry,” at the National Quartet Convention, during a LIVE listening party on air at WGUS in Augusta, Ga. and also through an in-depth interview on the Solid Gospel Radio Network.
For more information, visit  Connect with Jeff & Sheri through social media: Facebook –, Twitter – @JSEaster, @SheriEaster.
Two-time GRAMMY®-nominated Jeff & Sheri Easter are Gospel music treasures, featured regularly on the Gaither HOMECOMING videos and international HOMECOMING tours in addition to their own heavy schedule of appearances.  Jeff & Sheri are the recipients of six GMA DOVE Awards, 15 Singing News Fan Awards, three Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music Association Awards, two International Country Gospel Music Association honors, seven AGM Ovation Awards, 16 Voice Awards, four Southern Gospel Music Fan Fair Awards, five SGN Scoops Diamond Awards, four Hearts Aflame Awards and three Cash Box Awards.
Formed in 1988 following childhoods as part of their respective, nationally-known family groups The Lewis Family and The Easter Brothers, the married couple is joined today on stage by their children, Madison and Morgan Easter, who round out the group. The group is known for such hits as “Roses Will Bloom Again,” “Praise His Name,” “Thread of Hope,” “Speak to the Mountain” and many others including “Born to Climb,” which garnered a 2010 DOVE Award. They were nominated for a 2011 GRAMMY® Award for their Expecting Good Things (Spring Hill Music) recording, which was recorded while Sheri endured a journey through and victory over breast cancer.
