A Look At The New Dove Brothers Lineup, And A New Song Spotlight

December 28, 2011 By: Aaron Category: SG Artists, SG Music, The Dove Brothers, Youtube

Youtube is an amazing tool. I found a high quality clip of the group singing a brand new song that I assume McCray Dove wrote, and it’s probably one of the better ones I’ve heard from him. There haven’t been too many videos of the group since Keith Casstevens joined as tenor, other than a couple in the beginning, so it’s nice to hear more from this form of the group. It’s clear that Casstevens brings a different tenor sound than the group is used to having.

 

As good as the sound is, I want to draw particular attention to the lyrics of the song. It should be a wake-up call for a lot of people, both fans and industry personnel alike. I know that I, personally, was gripped. I can think of several examples right in the world of Southern Gospel music where someone failed in some way, and people in both camps I mentioned were guilty of kicking them when they were down. Granted, some go on living like the Devil and seem to have no intention of changing that, but how many of them have been truly, sincerely sorry and have repented of what they have done, only to be shunned and cast out by those that are commanded to forgive? It’s a slap in the face of the One who created them, loves them, and forgave them, no matter what they did. May such an attitude of unforgiveness, contradictory to what God commands, not be found in us.

  1. Yes McCray wrote this. I’ve heard this song a couple times. Like you I found the lyrics gripping. I told McCray he should change the lyrics from Sunday School Teacher to Southern Gospel Singer! LOL!
    You’re right on Aaron. Love the post.

  2. Ruth Voorhees says:

    How true, but sad, of the words you have written. If God can forgive how do we as children of God think we should continue.

    Great posting Aaron.

  3. I think we should be careful though. Just because somebody has repented and found God’s forgiveness doesn’t necessarily mean he can resume his old life as though nothing has happened. Consequences are an inevitable part of the choices we make. It’s not necessarily cruel or unforgiving to recognize that.

    WHAT A GREAT SONG! GOD DOES FORGIVE US, BUT WE ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO GO BACK INTO THE HOG PIN. WHO AMONG US HAS NOT SINNED? GOD SAID LET HIM CAST THE 1st STONE. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST SONGS I HAVE HEARD IN ALONG TIME. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHERE I COULD GET A PERFORMANCE TRACK. COULD YOU TELL ME WHERE I COULD BY ONE?

    • Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, I don’t think that the group has recorded this outside of live performances on Youtube, so there aren’t any tracks available at this time of which I am aware.

  5. Love this song. Great words and message. I agree one must truly repent and change their ways going forward.

    But yes too many times instead of praying for one another and restoring a brother or sister in the spirit of meekness is not the norm. It should be.

    Hope I can get a soundtract to this song and where can I find the album? Went to their website, but didn’t find it so far.
