Saturday News Roundup #137
- Canton Junction will be recording a live video at Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas tomorrow night.
- NQC Executive Vice President Clarke Beasley broke his hip in a recent car accident. [EDIT, 2/21/13: Broken link removed.] The accident was so bad that the first responders had to cut him out of his car.
- The Gatlinburg Gathering is moving to July.
- Daywind announced a new trio, Watts, Rowsey & Bean. It’s a mixed trio composed of Perrys alumnus Nicole Watts, Karen Peck & New River alumnus John Darin Rowsey, and … no, no, the third member is not McKameys bass singer Ruben Bean. It’s soloist Gina Bean.
- It turns out that the Gaither Vocal Band’s Pure and Simple album, releasing Tuesday, might be pure but is not exactly simple. Different versions of the album, with differing song lists, are being released in different venues. David Bruce Murray breaks the whole situation down, and even explains the least expensive method of getting all of the songs. [EDIT, 3/16/13: Broken link removed.]
What could be a better way to head into National Quartet Convention week than with a video of an early version of the group that started “the Granddaddy of them all”?
It’s open thread Saturday—you decide!
