Saturday News Roundup #155
- Mansion Records is launching a bluegrass imprint, BlueGrass Valley Records. They will be working with the bluegrass artists Brad Davis, Detour, Nightflyer, Tammy Larson, and The Wilhites.
- On Thursday, the Crist Family announced that Breana Crist was coming off the road. Here’s an in-depth farewell open letter to her fans.
- Lynn’s Chronicles recently reviewed Dianne Wilkinson: The Life and Times of a Gospel Songwriter. (Thanks, Lynn!) The review is here; more information on the book is here.
There are too many good videos worth watching this week to only feature one! Here’s a first look at Randy Byrd with the LeFevre Quartet.
(Here’s a second video featuring new tenor Thomas Nally.)
Here’s a video of the Kingdom Heirs in the studio, working on their spring release Redeeming the Time, and having fun in between takes.
Finally, this Perfect Heart video has been making the rounds this week. Tenor Garry Sheppard sings bass, bass singer Mike Presnell sings lead, and pianist Jeff Stice singing tenor with Perfect Heart. Even though the spotlight is on Garry, since Jeff is the one on the scene today, definitely don’t miss Jeff’s high ending! Another point of interest is that Joseph Smith, who would eventually move on to the Booth Brothers and then the Mark Trammell Trio, is singing baritone.
It’s open thread Saturday—you decide!
