Booth Brothers sign with Daywind

There had been some speculation over whether the Booth Brothers would sign with the newly revived Canaan Records. That speculation has ended with their signing to another label, Daywind Records–the modern-day Canaan, if you will. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.]

I think the case could well be made that Daywind is today’s Canaan, with a fairly high percentage of the most popular Singing News Fan Award-Winning artists on its roster: Perrys, Brian Free & Assurance, Crabb Family, Greater Vision, Karen Peck & New River, Legacy Five, Mark Trammell Trio, Mercy’s Mark, Triumphant, and now the Booth Brothers. Six of this year’s top 10 groups (and three of the top 5) are all Daywind artists. Two other labels each have one artist in the top 5.

Three of the top five bass singers, four of the baritones, three of the leads, and four of the tenors are with Daywind groups, and six of the top 10 songs are from Daywind albums. So I think that if you measure a label by its artists’ popularity, it’s safe to say that joining Daywind was a pretty good move for the Booth Brothers.

  1. It’s a good move, but don’t you think that Daywind is going more Progressive lately? See my blog for more on the subject…
