| From the broadcast
the weekend of September 1st & 2nd, 2012:
Quoting myself from the broadcast:
"Every now and then a brand new quartet comes along that you know is going
to make an impact in the field of Southern Gospel music and for the
Gospel! That's the case with our Featured Artists today, a quartet called
Canton Junction." A few things are unusual here. First,
it's a brand new quartet but it includes names you'll know.
Matt Hagee, pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, sings
tenor. Singing lead is Aaron Crabb, whom you know from his years with
the Crabb Family. Singing lead is Michael Sykes, who's been involved
Gospel music for a long time as a singer, songwriter, producer and...well,
just about anything in music. And singing bass is Tim Duncan, who
you're sure to recall as the long-time bass for Ernie Haase & Signature
Sound. So these guys are all "pros" from the start. The second most
unusual thing here is that this is actually a church-based quartet, stemming
from the music ministry at Cornerstone Church. This means their appearances
elsewhere will be limited. On a future broadcast, you'll hear more about
the meaning of that name, Canton Junction.
Canton Junction's debut CD is due out soon and will be available from
On the program, Scott Fowler was talking about Legacy Five's
planned concert September 8th at the Creation Museum near Cincinnatti, Ohio
the first concert ever in the museum's new auditorium. More information
about the event (and the museum) is
here. It's interesting that they timed this event to make it convenient
for people headed to the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, KY.
What is it with bass singers this year? It seems to be the year to move from
group to group, as you heard on the Headline Update.

program's second hour, can be found at their website:
