Arden, North Carolina (June 23, 2020) â€”Â Last spring, legacy Southern Gospel artistÂ The McKameys (website HERE) announced theyâ€™d no longer be touring full time, and released The Crown, an album that continued to bring their message of faithfulness and the power of the Gospel to the world. In the fall, theÂ National Quartet ConventionÂ paused to honor the group thatâ€™s releasedÂ 54 albumsÂ over the course of their career and has theÂ most #1 hits in Southern Gospel history.
Thousands of fans and industry peers filled theÂ LeConte CentreÂ inÂ Pigeon Forge, TennesseeÂ to celebrateÂ The McKameysâ€™Â more thanÂ 60 years of singing. Now, fans of the group can relive that special afternoon withÂ LIVE Like No Other,Â a CD and DVDÂ featuring live music as well as behind the scenes interviews withÂ The McKameys, to be releasedÂ July 17.Â LIVE Like No OtherÂ is now available forÂ pre-order, save and add.
â€œWe are excited about the release ofÂ LIVE Like No Other, which was recorded atÂ The National Quartet ConventionÂ inÂ September of 2019Â during ourÂ Farewell Tour,â€ sayÂ The McKameys. â€œWhat a great day, being with so many great friends, praising the Lord in song, and feeling the spirit in a special way! We canâ€™t wait for everyone to experience the excitement and emotions that were present that day.â€
Throughout the one-and-a-half-hour concert,Â The McKameysÂ performed many of theirÂ #1 hits, likeÂ â€œGod On The Mountain,â€ â€œRoll That Burden On Me,â€ â€œUnspoken Requestâ€Â andÂ â€œDo You Know How It Feels,â€Â and crowd favorites likeÂ â€œTrophy Of Grace,â€ â€œThere Is Jesusâ€ and â€œFor The Recordâ€Â in a joyful celebration of a career many donâ€™t get to enjoy.
The album release also marks the first timeÂ The McKameys’Â rendition ofÂ â€œGod On The Mountainâ€Â â€” which wasÂ #1 on the Singing News charts for five months in 1988-89Â and became their most requested song of all time â€” will be released on streaming services.
The DVD includes videos ofÂ The McKameysÂ sharing personal stories from their careers and a special moment whenÂ Horizon RecordsÂ and theÂ National Quartet ConventionÂ honored the group for its dedication to spreading Godâ€™s word over the years.
With both parts ofÂ LIVE Like No Other, fans ofÂ The McKameysÂ will always be able to enjoy the groupâ€™s heartfelt performance and message, though theyâ€™re no longer touring.

About The McKameys
The McKameys are a family group based out of Clinton, Tennessee, entering in their sixth decade of spreading Godâ€™s message of love and hope through their music.
