The McKameys release LIVE Like No Other

Arden, North Carolina (July 17, 2020) — Last fall, thousands of fans and industry peers filled the LeConte Centre in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee during the National Quartet Convention to celebrate The McKameys’ more than 60 years of singing, after the legacy Southern Gospel Group announced they’d no longer be touring full time. Now, fans of the group can relive that special afternoon with LIVE Like No Other, a CD and DVD featuring live music as well as behind the scenes interviews with The McKameys — a group that’s released 54 albums over the course of their career and has the most #1 hits in Southern Gospel history. LIVE Like No Other is now available.

“We are excited about the release of LIVE Like No Other, which was recorded at The National Quartet Convention in September of 2019 during our Farewell Tour,” say The McKameys. “What a great day, being with so many great friends, praising the Lord in song, and feeling the spirit in a special way! We can’t wait for everyone to experience the excitement and emotions that were present that day.”

 

Throughout the one-and-a-half-hour concert, The McKameys performed many of their #1 hits, like “God On The Mountain,” “Roll That Burden On Me,” “Unspoken Request” and “Do You Know How It Feels,” and crowd favorites like “Trophy Of Grace,” “There Is Jesus” and “For The Record” in a joyful celebration of a career many don’t get to enjoy.

The album release also marks the first time The McKameys’ rendition of “God On The Mountain” — which was #1 on the Singing News charts for five months in 1988-89 and became their most requested song of all time — will be released on streaming services.
A special message from The McKameys.

The DVD includes videos of The McKameys sharing personal stories from their careers and a special moment when Horizon Records and the National Quartet Convention honored the group for its dedication to spreading God’s word over the years.

With both parts of LIVE Like No Other, fans of The McKameys will always be able to enjoy the group’s heartfelt performance and message, though they’re no longer touring.

Happy Monday- “God On The Mountain”

Written by scoopsnews on January 7, 2019 – 3:11 am -

McKameys

 

 

Life is easy, when you’re up on the mountain
And you’ve got peace of mind, like you’ve never known
But things change, when you’re down in the valley
Don’t lose faith, for your never alone

For the God on the mountain, is still God in the valley
When things go wrong, he’ll make them right
And the God of the good times, is still God in the bad times
The God of the day, is still God in the night
We talk of faith way up on the mountain
But talk comes easy, when life’s at its best
Now its down in the valleys, trials and temptations
That’s where your faith is really put to the test

For the God on the mountain, is still God in the valley,
When things go wrong, he’ll make them right
And the God of the good times, is still God in the bad times
The God of the day, is still God in the night
The God of the day, is still God in the night

Written By: Tracy Dartt

 

There are many people going through difficult circumstances right now. It is our prayer that this song will remind them (you) that the God on the Mountain is still God in the valley. Happy Monday! Have a great week…..

Update on Peg From The McKameys

Written by scoopsnews on January 31, 2018 – 2:08 pm -

Update on Ms. Peg…

As many of you may know, back on December 27, 2017, Peg had triple bypass surgery. She has done and is doing exceptionally well thanks to God for healing and for all of you who have been praying for Peg! Last week, after just 4 weeks from her surgery, her surgeon cleared her to go back on the road!! So, on January 26th Peg and Ruben were able to join the rest of the group and travel to Lenoir, North Carolina, and Peg was able to sing her signature song “God On The Mountain”! Peg said “this was a shot in the arm for her and Ruben to be able to travel and sing a little”. So, needless to say, her and Ruben will be back traveling with the group beginning February 9th, 2018! We give GOD all the glory for what HE has done!! However, as she is still healing she will gradually work back into her “place” on stage! She will be taking things a little each week until her healing is complete!! Peg says, “Thank you to each of you for your prayers, cards and emails, these have really been overwhelming, I love you and appreciate all of these!” So, on that note….Peg and Ruben are back!!
