Blackwood Brothers sign with Daywind

Thanks to their Facebook page, we’ve known unofficially for a few weeks that the Blackwood Brothers were going to be signing with Daywind. Now it’s official; Jimmy Blackwood and the Blackwood Brothers are now a part of Daywind.

The record deal will include a project, to be released this fall, commemorating the group’s 75th Anniversary. Daywind’s Norman Holland stated: “What an honor to be a part of history. Blackwood Brothers’ music and songs are what established what we now know as Southern Gospel music. We are honored to pay tribute to this remarkable group and its heritage and on their 75th anniversary.”

The group today consists of James Blackwood’s son Jimmy Blackwood on lead, Wayne Little on tenor, Randy Byrd on bass, and Brad White singing baritone and playing piano.

Jimmy Blackwood stated: “We are gathering material for our first recording on the Daywind label and we are honored to be joining their roster of today’s top Gospel singers and to be associated with their outstanding team of writers and musicians. I pray that our efforts will be pleasing to the Lord, a blessing to all who listen, and that we would make my daddy proud.”
