Saturday News Roundup #36

Worth Reading:

  • Nate at Burke’s Brainwork found a demo of Carrie Underwood of “Jesus Take the Wheel” fame singing “For God So Loved” in her pre-American Idol days. It’s pretty good, with a strong ending.
  • Cody McVey is now officially the pianist for the Kingsmen. He’s been with them for months, but it was on a trial basis at first. [EDIT, 2/22/13: Broken link removed.]
  • Aaron Swain has the scoop: [EDIT, 2/22/13: Broken link removed.] Cross 4 Crowns has a new tenor, their fourth in two years, Marcus Faulknor. Does anyone know if he’s related to the Faulknor brothers that comprise a fellow Crossroads group, the trio Voices Won?

  1. Looking Forward to your next two reviews… I am buying “Almost Morning” When I go to see the Perrys on June 12th!!!!! And I already have When You Look At Me… It is a very good album… But I Like True To The Call just a little better… 🙂

  2. I heard that the Living Waters Trio has quit singing due to some personal issues. Anyone know why?

  3. Looking forward to the DVD review of the Blackwood Bros. 1951-58.

  4. Daniel, Marcus is our cousin. He sang with Jericho for I believe was about 3 or so years. He is a very talented singer, great guy!
