Arden, North Carolina (August 20, 2019) â€” On their upcoming album Take A Stand, The Carolina Boys Quartet (visit their website HERE) sings about the power of unshakable faith. When darkness and fear set in, a steadfast belief in what scripture tells us God will do is all we need to keep moving forward. The album, which will be released October 11, is now available for pre-order.
Take A Stand, the groupâ€™s fifth release with Crossroads MusicÂ begins with â€œIâ€™m Traveling On,â€ a ‘true to the traditional’ Southern Gospel quartet song about not letting worldly temptations distract you along the path to heaven. Itâ€™s followed by â€œWhat Youâ€™re Going To Do,â€ which encourages praising God while waiting for Him to act in His timing because the promise of help is certain.
The Carolina Boys Quartet shares more songs about following Godâ€™s guiding hand through life on â€œThe Hand of the Lord,â€ â€œOne Step At A Time,â€ and â€œClaim the Promises,â€ all reiterating that faith is the most important resource we have throughout life.
The title track, â€œTake A Stand,â€ encourages us to hold our ground in the promises of Christ, where weâ€™ll be safe and secure through struggles and trials.
â€œTake a Stand, stand firm
Hold fast to Godâ€™s holy word
Have faith, be strong
For it will not be very long,
Til the mighty hand of the Lord will deliver you once more
Safe and secure
Take a stand on his word.â€
â€œLet It Be The Cross,â€ â€œThey Never Were The Same,â€ and â€œTo Save My Life,â€ tell of the lasting legacy of Christâ€™s time on Earth and His resurrection. With moving music, these songs inspire reverence and worship.
Other tracks include, â€œDig A Well,â€ about finding renewal for the spirit; â€œSomebody Somewhere,â€ about being a witness for Christ and bringing others to His word; and â€œYouâ€™ve Already Forgotten,â€ about Godâ€™s unending mercy.
The album closes with â€œFaith Works,â€ a musically stripped-down production with only piano and keys supporting the vocals reminding us that by just having belief alone, weâ€™ll be saved by grace.
â€œWe are celebrating 10 years of ministry this year, and have been blessed to be with Crossroads from the very beginning,â€ says Chuck Lowe, The Carolina Boys Quartetâ€™s lead singer. â€œWe believe this new project is our best yet, with powerful songs written by some of the best writers in the business.â€
Producer Jeff Collins adds, “Integrity and sincerity are two descriptions that come first to my mind when enjoying the music of The Carolina Boys Quartet. Each member of this seasoned quartet offers their excellent vocal abilities to this upcoming release from Skyland. Each year I really look forward to and enjoy the process of building great songs with these guys. You will so enjoy this selection of music!”
