Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Songs of thanks aren’t one of the most frequent topics in our genre. But, thankfully, one of the best in recent years came out earlier this year:

One final thought: Be sure to read Danny Jones’ column on the most important thing we should be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Daniel, & to all of your readers & commenters!

  2. Where was Steve French? Or do they normally sing that song as a trio without him?

    • I don’t know, but I do know that he lets Andy Stringfield sing baritone for a song or two in many of their sets.

  3. The Kingdom Heirs sing to more unsaved/unchurched audiences than any other 10 groups in SGM. I’ve heard them a number of times…several at Dollywood. They are as brilliant a male quartet as has ever sung in SGM, and I love their music. No one can hold out their endings as can they. Each of their voices is outstanding, and they blend as well as any, better than most. But what I admire most about them, is that they sing THE GOSPEL. They have very, very few “fluff” songs- no waste songs, or just for fun songs. If they do one, it is a rarity. But almost every song mentions sin, the cross, a Savior’s dying love, redemption, the meaning of salvation, the love of God, the truth of Eternity, the resurrection…listen to their songs, and over, and over, and over, you will hear…the GOSPEL. What We Needed. I’ve Been Rescued. He Locked The Gates. I’ve Never Been Loved. My Anchor of Hope. I Want You To Know. Tell Me Why. Just Preach Jesus. The Test of Time. I could continue this, but we all get the point. I hold them in the highest regard, for consistently, regularly, and daily, singing the good news of the gospel. They really are…True To The Call. Thanks for posting this, another one of their outstanding songs!
