8/29/09 News Roundup

August 29, 2009 By: Aaron Category: Bill Gaither, Blackwood Gospel Quartet, Gaither Vocal Band, Legacy Five, Mike and Kelly Bowling, SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music, The Bowling Family

It’s been another news-filled week for Southern Gospel music. Let’s look at some things that took place in the past few days:

1. Mike & Kelly Bowling have experienced change again. Tenor Chris Whitaker came off the road to be with a sick family member, and stepping up to round out the group is Terah Penhollow. With the personnel change comes yet another name change for the group to The Bowling Family. Read more about it here.

2. Elsewhere in personnel changes, the Blackwood Gospel Quartet has hired a new tenor. Dale Evans is filling the tenor position for the group. The former tenor, Daniel Childs, came off the road due to health issues. The BGQ is currently at work on a new project slated for release sometime this September.

3. The Gaither Vocal Band’s new project, Reunited, is now available for preorder. This highly anticipated project will be available everywhere on Sept. 8, but you can hear it now by getting the download at gaither.com.

Be looking for a review on this blog in the weeks following NQC.

4. Legacy Five is also taking pre-orders for their upcoming Daywind release, Just Stand. The project will be making it’s official debut at this year’s NQC. Lari Goss is producing, and you can tell the guys are excited about this latest effort. One thing about Lari is that if he has a hand in it, it will be a quality product; he’s a master of the production craft. Be looking for a review on that project as well.

Update: They have clips of this and the Jubilee! project with the Booth Brothers and Greater Vision up here.
