the weekend of July 23rd & 24th, 2016:
Our Featured Artists on this edition were Butler, Hughes & Hayes.
This was the first time we have had the opportunity to visit with them,
but I don't think it will be the last. They are Lamar Butler, Darren Hughes,
Michael Hayes and Matt
you heard, Matt Parker joined the group after they, and the group's
name, had been established as a trio.) You heard
several original songs, primarily written by group members, from their
current CD, "Adopted."
Darren's title song,
"Adopted," is special because it's so personal to him as
an adoptive parent. In fact, you can view a compelling and
well-produced concept video of that song online here.
More info about this group can be found on their website.
Our Artist Spotlight guests, Marty
Raybon and Mike McGuire of Shenandoah, have pulled together a solid
Gospel album that any country music or Gospel music fan should
thoroughly enjoy. "Good News Travels Fast," the original
title song for the CD, is a fun song with a great message.
But their other original songs are also solid. Shenandoah has
always been known for their "story songs." But this time, as
you heard Marty say, they were determined to write songs that told the
Gospel story. More info about Shenandoah and their new Gospel
CD can be found in our webstore.
the weekend of July 16th & 17th, 2016:
Our Featured Artist on this program
was soloist Jason Crabb.
I've known Jason, and have been interviewing him, since he was barely
21 (which was almost two decades ago). He was singing back
then with his mom and dad and brothers as the Crabb Family.
And it's been a pleasure to watch this young man grow in music and in
ministry over the years. The Crabb Family, as such, retired
in 2007 (not counting occasional reunion concerts). But Jason
went on to launch a highly successful solo career. He's
collected all sorts of awards, including a Grammy award, several Dove
awards, Singing News Fan
Awards and many other recognitions. As you heard Jason say on
the program, "I'm very
blessed to get to do what I love to do... And so I thank the
Lord. I really try to thank Him, take time out to thank Him
every day and say I'm thankful for what You allow me to do..."
Jason's songs on this program were from his current "Whatever The Road"
Ways," written by Gerald
Crabb and Jimmy
Yeary, was compellingly built around a surprising
Won't Leave You There" spent several months on the Singing News Top 40
earlier this year. And
"Home" is his current radio single. That's the
song Jason said always reminds him of his grandma. It's great
to see Jason spreading his wings as a songwriter, following in the
footsteps of his dad, Gerald Crabb.
Jason Crabb's CD featured on
this program, "Whatever The Road," is
available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call
1-800-38-MUSIC to order. You can order easily from our
webstore by using this link to go directly to this item.
If you heard Lindsay
Huggins on this program's Artist Spotlight segment, you
know she is an amazing singer. Based in Nashville, she
travels quite a bit to sing in churches. She's also leading
music worship for various ladies' retreats and she does worship music
for various campmeetings. She even traveled for a while as a
backup singer for Reba McEntire. I found it interesting that,
as she recounted on the program, God used a song to open her heart to
receiving Him. So it really makes sense that she is using her
music now to reach others for Christ. You can find out much
more info about Lindsay on her website.
If you caught the Headline
Update on this program, you know that Charlie Waller is
retiring his Florida Boys
quartet at the end of the year. He also sees virtually no
chance of continuing his annual summertime event, the Grand Ole Gospel Reunion.
Just as Charlie picked up the mantle of the Florida Boys a decade ago,
is there anyone who would want to continue the tradition of the Grand
Ole Gospel Reunion?
Also on the Headline
Update I mentioned the 18th Annual St. Jude Benefit Singing
that will be held August 6, 6 p.m., at the Hopewell Baptist Church in
Gainesville, GA (5086 Poplar Springs Road). As the name
implies, this is a concert to benefit the enormously beneficial work of
St. Jude Children's Hospital. Past concerts in this series
have raised more than $370,000. There is no admission charge,
but a love offering will be taken. Singing will be the
Inspirations, the Primitives and Georgia, along with other special
music. More info is available from Stanley Pierce by calling 770-540-9085.

These "Current Information" listings are dated to
correspond to the program that is provided to stations to air on a
specific weekend. Sometimes, for whatever reason, a station may
inadvertantly air the wrong program—a week early or perhaps late. That
is why you might be hearing dated references on the program that don't
make sense, including references to future or outdated giveaways.
Fortunately, this kind of occurrance is very rare. But please
you notice this happening regularly on your local station.
