After nearly two years of writing, song-selection and recording, the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame members were faced with the challenge of selecting which of the eighteen recorded songs would make it onto their newest album. The Nelons felt strongly that each song held an incredible potential to minister to and encourage listeners, so instead of narrowing down the selection, the idea of jointly releasing Stronger Together and Family Harmony was born.With a long list of world-class songwriters gracing the credits, it’s not difficult to see why eliminating songs from the track listing would be near impossible. An accomplished songwriter in his own right, Jason Clark was honored to co-write with such legendary writers as Dony and Reba (Rambo) McGuire, and Dawn Thomas, in addition to the contributions Songwriters of the Century, Bill and Gloria Gaither, made to the project. Paired with the incomparable orchestrations and musicianship of hall of famers such as Brent Mason, Gordon Mote and David Huntsinger, among others, Stronger Together and Family Harmony are both exceptional projects that the Nelons are eager to present to their long-time fans, and new listeners alike.
Two very special guests, Bill Gaither and Karen Peck Gooch, joined the Nelons in the studio to offer their talents to these collections of songs. Karen and Kelly Nelon Clark reminisce on their time singing together with Kelly’s father, Rex Nelon, with a sentimental song entitled ‘You Can’t Make Old Friends’ while Bill Gaither joins the family-group on ‘Suppertime.’ The Nelons also put their special touch on a few familiar classics such as ‘We Shall Behold Him,’ ‘I Think I’ll Read It Again,’ and ‘Then Came The Morning.’
The first single from the pair of projects, ‘I Just Can’t Make It By Myself’ is featured on Family Harmony. The song climbed the Singing News Radio Charts earlier this Spring, and has been a crowd favorite with audiences across the country. The current radio single, ‘My Father’s House,’ from Stronger Together, was released to radio in July and its smooth tones and tight harmony are already resonating with listeners.
