Daywind on Daywind
Probably due to the extended holiday weekend, there wasn’t really enough news in SG to call for a Saturday roundup of stories I missed during the week.
So, in light of this discussion I was having with Chris Unthank over whether Crabb Revival is seeking success in the CCM market, I thought I’d point out something interesting I noticed in Daywind’s ad on page 39 of the September / October Homecoming Magazine:
In its third decade of business, Daywind Records is the pre-eminent label in the Southern Gospel genre with an impeccable roster of artists: Brian Free and Assurance, Greater Vision, Karen Peck and New River, the Booth Brothers, Crabb Revival, Aaron and Amanda Crabb, Austins Bridge, Legacy Five, Mark Trammell Trio, the Perrys, and Triumphant Quartet. Daywind is also crossing into the CCM Market with Pop/Adult Contemporary music from Austins Bridge, Aaron and Amanda Crabb, Crabb Revival, Brian Free and Assurance, and the Booth Brothers. (Emphasis mine.)
What caught my attention was the reference to Crabb Revival, settling the question at hand. But if it was just that, I would have left this as a follow-up comment on that specific thread. I thought this was of more general interest, though, as it indicates how Daywind explains to a non-Singing News audience the general directions they see their artists going.
