Blackwood Brothers send single to radio

The Blackwood Brothers Quartet (Jimmy Blackwood’s group) has finally sent a single to radio. “God Leads Us Along,” from Rock of Ages: Hymns of the Faith, debuted at #70 on the Singing News airplay chart.

If you hear the strains of this familiar hymn come over the airwaves, be listening especially for a verse solo by their bass Randy Byrd–who I’ve been talking about here and on the blogs for a year and a half now. Hopefully you will have the chance to hear what I’ve heard in his voice!

The song is a simple piano-and-vocal rendition of a familiar hymn, so I’m not expecting it to become a top 10 hit, but it does provide a nice introduction to the current group’s sound.

  1. I recently heard/saw them on a portion of a video floating around on youtube. I was amazed at how much they sound like the old Blackwood Bros. from the 40’s and 50’s. Amazing.
