I’ve always loved this song.
Full Sail is the Mark Trammell Quartet’s first major recording of new material with bass Randy Byrd and tenor Blake Buffin. Father and son Mark and Nick Trammell continue to round out the vocal lineup, of course. Full Sail is a typical MTQ mix of traditional quartet songs and orchestrated ballads, with five new (or …View full post
Today is a tough day. It’s tough because the news broke that one of the greatest influences in my music ministry is gone. The news of Steve’s passing broke yesterday (June 28, 2016), and I’m just in shock. I first heard of Steve and the Kingdom Heirs back in 1995 and it was the music of …View full post
We certainly live in troubled times, and the future often seems murky at best. In times like these, we need somewhere dependable to turn, a place tried and true. Thankfully, for the Christian, we have that perfect refuge in Jesus Christ. I believe that need applies to all areas of life, even music. I find it …View full post
This is my fourth review of a Barry Rowland & Deliverance recording in five years, and it’s always a recording I look forward to. With The Light, Barry, his wife Tammy, and Shawn Rupert return with another collection of (mostly) Kyla Rowland compositions showcasing their signature Appalachian gusto. If anyone out there still isn’t familiar with …View full post
Did the year 2015 seem different to you, but you couldn’t put your finger on why? I figured it out for you: best I can tell, it was the first calendar year in over two decades that the Inspirations did not release a new recording of exactly 10 songs.

Aaron Swain of Swain’s Musings just posted an extensive interview with Michael English, lead singer of the Gaither Vocal Band.? It is a fairly long interview (~26 minutes), so don’t start it thinking this will be a quick one-on-one.? It was great to hear the interview, but I was most taken aback with the last few minutes where Michael was talking about things he read online that were said on blogs & forums that were very hurtful and discouraging.
If you don’t have much time for the interview in it’s entirety, listen closely to the last few minutes and consider your comments and opinions that you might have posted or vented about while online.? Not just about Michael, but in general.? There’s not one thing wrong with offering constructive criticism, but to just blurt out comments off the cuff without thinking of who you might be hurting is just plain wrong and sinful.
We will all certainly be held accountable for ALL actions in this life, and that includes everything we spout off about on the ‘net.? Just because our comments don’t usually have a face to them to the general online public, you can be sure that there is a record of everything we put on the web, both positive and negative.
I can’t imagine being the one that posted something to discourage someone along the way and make them want to or actually give up and quit.? Can you?
From the classic corner….
Great opportunity to pick up some classic Kingdom Heirs material…
I just finished uploading new music to our player at the bottom of the site.? Hope you enjoy it!
