  1. That’s a long list . Looks like at least 7 will be released next week at NQC.
    Sure there will be some independent or table releases from groups at NQC also. Lot of regional groups who don’t do main line recordings usually have new cd’s at NQC.
    Gaither has a lot coming out (for Christmas gifts). If you want my address I’ll be glad to furnish it so you can send me some of Gaither cd’s for Christmas.

  2. The Bowling Family – “Safe After The Storm” releasing 10/1.

  3. L5 is releasing “Louisville Live” dvd next week and Jubilee series is releasing “On the Road With the Jubilee Tour” (behind the scenes dvd

    • Thanks, Matt!

      The September entry is always the most fun entry in this series. There are ALWAYS titles that miss the initial post and get edited in later!

  4. Hey Daniel, we will have the remixed cd version of our “live in Louisville” video, and will have that same video with the commercials edited out.

  5. Since the Cathedrals’ “Icon” release is coming from Gaither Music Group, don’t be surprised if the songs are taken directly from various Homecoming videos and the Farewell Celebration (since Gaither already owns those and wouldn’t have to license the masters). The Icon series/branding is not just for this release – it is a mainstream series that is found in all major retailers (Walmart, FYE, etc), and it includes many different genres and styles, but it is also considered to be a “budget” series, which is why I believe that it will just be a mix of Gaither-produced video songs.

    • Good point. I was assuming it would be a compilation, due to the nature of the series, but I had also been casually assuming the songs would be pulled from the original masters. You’re probably right, though.

  6. Not listed: Ryan Seaton’s new project “Prisoner of Hope”

    • I knew he had one coming; I didn’t know a release date. Do you know one?

  7. I was just wondering if the new Whisnants cd would be a mainline release or just a table cd? Thanks

    • Their last one was a hymns/classics project, so I suspect this will be a project of new songs. Of course, since the Whisnants are an independent group, none of their projects are mainline from a distribution sense in the way a Gaither or Signature Sound or Collingsworth or Talleys mainline is (in bookstores across the country, etc.) – even if they’re mainline in production values and song quality.

  8. A preview of the EHSS Christmas CD/DVD releasing 10/15:


    • Not gonna lie, that looks different, but interesting enough make it a go-get.

  9. Not gonna lie, that looks different, but interesting. Probably interesting enough to make it a go-get.

  10. A few weeks ago I saw an offer for an upcoming Cathederals Reunion CD & free DVD for 15$. Want to purchase this thru PayPal. Now, I cannot recall WHERE I saw that offer. Can someone help??
    Thank you!

    • Greater Vision and, I think, several of the other alumni groups all had that pre-order. I put down my $15 or $20 through Greater Vision’s website.
