Saturday News Roundup #39

In the news / worth reading:

  • The Collingsworth Family announced that they will be releasing a new studio CD, The Answer, on August 15. The project, produced by Wayne Haun, will be their first studio project in over two years. Songwriters with cuts on the project include Chris Allman, Dianne Wilkinson, Kyla Rowland, Gerald Crabb, Darryl Williams, and Marty Funderburk. Phil Collingsworth will also have a song on the project; if I’m not mistaken, this is the first time (at least since the group has started on the professional Southern Gospel circuit) that they cut one of his songs. There are fourteen songs on the project, including two instrumentals.
  • Wes Hampton posts his thoughts about the Gaither Vocal Band video taping in San Antonio earlier this week. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link appears to be down, and has been removed.]
  • Dan Keeton announced that his disbanded group, the Dan Keeton Quartet, is “re-banding for a three day weekend we will not soon remember.” Could he have meant “not soon forget”? At any rate, they will be doing three concert dates in Georgia this weekend.

Upcoming Reviews:

  1. FYI – Tribute Quartet website launched Monday, June 1, 2009. Press release was issued then.

    • Thanks for the clarification. I must have misunderstood one of their tweets. Sorry about that!

    • I went ahead and deleted the sentence about the re-launch, since it’s so far off base. Thanks again for the catch!

  2. No prob, I figured you had misinterpreted something 🙂
