Our Featured Artists
on this program were the Old Paths Quartet, often simply referred
to as the Old Paths. They are Doug Roark, Tim Rackley, Jeremy Peace
and Daniel Ashmore, along with their new 17-year old pianist,
Josh Townsend. Yes, this was the second time we featured their "These
Truths" CD (we did first back in March), but they subsequently had a
number one song from it ("Long Live The King" back in July) and their
current song, "Love Them To Jesus," is, as you heard, in the top 10
for November. As Tim mentioned on the program, his family was surprised back
in August when his daughter, Brianna, went into kidney failure. He's
hoping to be able to donate a kidney to her late this year or early next
year to eliminate the need for regular dialysis. Please remember the Rackley
family in your prayers.
By the way, the Singing News column about "Long Live The King"
spotlighting songwriter Dianne Wilkinson was in the magazine's
October issue on page 56.

From the broadcast the weekend of October 18th & 19th, 2014:
Since the 1950s, the
Kingsmen have been one of Southern Gospel music's premier quartets.
They still are, despite the inevitable membership changes. In fact, some
of today's group members will tell you they grew up listening to the Kingsmen!
Their new CD, "Battle Cry," clearly illustrates that this quartet
is still in the forefront of today's quartet singing. It's one of their best
recordings in, as one group member said, perhaps 15 years. "Oh Yes I Am"
is their first radio single, and it's one that is catching on fast on
radio and among fans in concert. I'm hoping their next single will be the
CD's title cut, "Battle Cry." It's another great song. But there are
several more on there, too, that would qualify. More info about the Kingsmen
can be found
at this link.
The Kingsmen's CD featured on this program, "Battle Cry," is
available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC
to order. You can order easily from our webstore by

The Artist Spotlight segment on this
program was our first opportunity to visit with the Forgiven Quartet
from Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and I'm glad we did. They have a good sound
and an obvious heart for ministry through their music. The group has been
singing since 1981, and founder Mark Green remains a part of the group today.
They travel and sing primarily throughout the Midwest, having sung in more
than 20 states. I thought it was especially interesting to find out that
this quartet now has the last touring bus of the Cathedrals. That's history
on wheels! More info about the group can be found
We visited many times with the late Charles Johnson, especially back
in the 1980s and 1990s, and he was always a very gracious gentleman. His
music was loved and enjoyed by Southern Gospel fans and others, as well.
As they say, he was one of a kind. And he will be missed. (Info about his
passing was on the Headline Update of this program.)

Sylvia Greene of the Bradys has
been plagued by "Sudden Hearing Loss Syndrome." Occasionally she's totally
deaf, and doctors say even surgery won't help. But prayer and medical treatment
has restored much of her hearing, which, of course, is pretty essential for
a singer. So for that, her prayer is a prayer of thanksgiving.
