Upcoming Southern Gospel CD/DVD Releases: March 2011
For several years, I have thought that some Southern Gospel magazine or website ought to go to the trouble to compile a monthly list of Southern Gospel releases. Recently, the absurdly obvious thought hit me: Why don’t I do it myself? After all, I’ve put in the time and effort to build the contacts to pull it off. So without further ado, here are the upcoming Southern Gospel releases for March 2011:
- ~3/6: Favorite Hymns, The Melody Boys Quartet (table project)
- 3/15: George Younce…with Ernie Haase & Signature Sound (Stow Town / Provident/Integrity)
- 3/15: Joy in the Journey, The McKameys (Horizon / Crossroads)
- 3/22: The Best of David Phelps (CD/DVD), David Phelps (Gaither Music Group / EMI CMG)
It’s slow by all accounts; several label contacts remarked that it’s been a slow period after the end-of-year rush.
On the calendar for April:
- 4/19: Ultimate Gaither Collection, Gaither (Gaither Music Group / EMI CMG)
- 4/19: to be named CD, Heirline (Homeland)
- 4/19: to be named CD/DVD, The Akins (Crossroads)
- 4/19: Treasures Unseen, Beyond the Ashes (Vine / Crossroads)
- 4/19: Till the Storm Passes By, Skyline Boys (Crossroads)
- 4/26: He’s Alive CD/DVD, Talley Trio (Horizon/Crossroads)
This list aims to be inclusive of Daywind, Crossroads, Horizon/Crossroads, Sonlite/Crossroads, Vine/Crossroads, Gaither Music Group/EMI CMG, Stow Town/Provident/Integrity, Song Garden, Homeland, The Mansion Entertainment, and major independent group releases where known.
