CD Review: Still – Booth Brothers

When I first heard about Still, I was interviewing the Booth Brothers for the August cover story of the Singing News.  This was back in the summer of 2014 and after completing successful phone calls, texts and emails to Michael, Ronnie and Jim (who was still with the trio at the time), I could not…

GIVE-A-WAY: Still…

I just came home from a wonderful few days in Nashville at the beautiful Gaylord Opryland Resort.  Legacy Five hosts their NYE Celebration there each year and it’s a blast!  This year, well, actually the last few hours of last year, I heard the Booth Brothers with their new baritone singer, Paul Lancaster, and picked…

Pink Monkeys and Backslidden Guitars

Every seat in the Main Street Music Hall was sold on Saturday night…as it was last year.  The Booth Brothers were the featured artist for the closing night of the Great Lake of the Ozarks Gospel Sing and 1000 fans were in their seats and ready to go when Todd Foreman walked on stage.  After…

CD Review: Quartet Style – Booth Brothers

“We cut a record!” Michael Booth exclaimed, holding up a CD with enthusiasm at the end of one of the most anticipated concerts this year. (2013) When the Booth Brothers and Gene McDonald came together at the Memphis Quartet Show and sang as the “Booth Brothers Quartet” earlier this June, fans eagerly awaited this new…

Immediate Applause

  “Excuse me, sir, are these seats taken?” I asked a gentlemen sitting on the front row Thursday afternoon at the Memphis Quartet Show.  After shaking his head no, I turned to Melissa (my dear friend who drove up from Mississippi) having a pretty good idea of what her answer would be when I asked…

CD Review: For All He’s Done – Greater Vision

In April of 2013, Greater Vision released their new CD For All He’s Done…within it, are some of the most beautiful words you will ever hear. In a proper review, I’d outline Greater Vision’s history and all the ways their successful career in Southern Gospel Music has had fans sitting on the edge of their…

Snapshots #2 – Lake of the Ozarks

Turning right at the yellow banner that read, “Gospel Sing Parking,” we found a place for our car and walked down the sidewalk to the Main Street Music Theater. It was Friday night, the Booth Brothers were scheduled to sing and from what I heard, the venue was sold out! (That proved to be true!)…

Faith, Facts and Fairytales – What are YOU worth?

There is a dangerous trend going on in the world today.  It’s called suicide.  Drug addiction.  Alcohol overdose.  The list could go on to public school shootings and murder, but we’ll stop there.  For some reason, human’s have lost the value of life.  Why is this so?  If Evolution is true things should be getting…

Tin-Ears, Macho Men, Barley Tones and a Lone Bass Singer…

After a trek to Nebraska on Wednesday I found myself driving to another concert that very Saturday, only this one took me in the opposite direction – Tennessee!  That weekend was the much anticipated “Jubilee 3” tour with Greater Vision, Legacy Five and the Booth Brothers.  I was privileged to be able to attend one…
