Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the Day After…

It is the day after Black Friday, which is the day after Thanksgiving and I’ve managed to still be alive.  How did I battle the crowds and remain unscathed?  Simple!  I stayed home and shopped on my computer.  (That’s kind of cheating, isn’t it?)  Oh well, I didn’t make many purchases anyway, so why face…

The Opera House and The Heritage Hall

Being located in Missouri is quite handy when one of SGM’s largest events comes to Branson every year.  Yep, I’m talking about Silver Dollar City’s Southern Gospel Picnic!  Once again, the park brought in sixty artists to seven stages over the course of eleven days.  I count myself blessed to have been able to be…

September Give-A-Way!

March Motion Pictures: Christian Country Girl – Red Roots

Ever since I purchased the first project from Red Roots at NQC last year, I’ve been anticipating their next one. One day, I pulled out my cell phone to read a Twitter post that said they were in the studio working on a new recording! Inside, I shouted for joy! Soon the day came when…

GIVE-A-WAY – Red Roots

These girls are making a splash in Southern Gospel with their unique family harmony.  Every time I see one of their ads in the Singing News Magazine, I smile.  When I think about the commitment they have to spreading the Gospel in song, I smile even more.  Well, here is your chance to hear their…

Cd Review – Red Roots

Red Roots have been making a splash in Southern Gospel Music with their Country/Bluegrass sound and family harmony. With their current single, Lord, I’m Listening, climbing up the Singing News Charts, this trio from Mississippi is making their mark, which if you read the review below, is a good one. Musically, there is a strong…

Red Roots Run Deep – NQC 2011

If you are a Singing News subscriber, you have certainly noticed the full page ads featuring the Red Roots.  I was curious about this new trio, so I tracked them down to hear their performance in the Featured Artists Showcase.  I was not disappointed!  After the showcase, I went back into the Convention Hall and…
