Ernie Haase & Signature Sound to Premiere Friday Night Sing Sep 11

Nashville, TN (September 2, 2020)
GRAMMY®-nominated, Dove Award-winning StowTown Records flagship artist Ernie Haase & Signature Sound is set to premiere a new streaming series, Friday Night Sing, beginning September 11 at 7:00 pm ET. A unique mix of music, memories and special guests, the weekly half-hour show will be free to view on the group’s website, as well as via YouTube and Facebook.

“Like everyone else, when much of the U.S. shut down at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I would wake up each morning with uncertainty and a certain amount of fear,” Haase recalls. “After a few weeks of that I said, ‘Enough! What can I do to help?’ EHSS soon began singing together online, each of us performing from our individual living rooms. That weekly effort caught on so well and the idea for ‘Friday Night Sing’ was born. Now, this series is our gift to the body of Christ in these uncertain times.”

With a new episode debuting each Friday for 16 weeks, the show will be anchored by socially-distanced performances of familiar favorites from Ernie Haase & Signature Sound. In addition, a special guest will be featured on every show, with upcoming appearances slated to include Christian music patriarch Bill Gaither; Dr. Dave Zanotti, president and CEO of the American Policy Roundtable and co-host of the popular radio broadcast The Public Square; GRAMMY®-winning cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio; GRAMMY®-nominated trio the Booth Brothers; and Broadway actor and singer J. Mark McVey, among many others.

“Friday Night Sing” episodes will also be highlighted by never-before-seen footage of Haase’s beloved father-in-law, the late George Younce, along with archived performances from the Cathedral Quartet during Haase’s tenure with the iconic group.

“We know Christ is the center of all things and on the ‘Friday Night Sing’ we are going to show the world what that looks like,” Haase adds of the show’s purpose. “Grace, hope, love, liberty, friendship and all good things have a face, and it is the eternal Christ Jesus our Lord. THAT’S WHY WE SING!”

Since its formation in 2003, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound has become one of the most celebrated quartets in Southern Gospel history. The GRAMMY®-nominated, multi Dove Award-winning group is comprised of Ernie Haase (tenor), Devin McGlamery (lead), Dustin Doyle (baritone) and Paul Harkey (bass). A hitmaker at Southern Gospel radio, EHSS has also earned multiple Gold and Platinum DVD certifications and was recently nominated for a 2020 Dove Award for Southern Gospel Artist of the Year.

Exclusive Premiere of The Collingsworth Family’s ‘The Lamb’ Lyric Video

StowTown Records and The Collingsworth Family announce the official release of “The Lamb” lyric video, exclusively through Singing News. The Collingsworth Family has been performing this current radio single for over a year as part of the group’s Mercy and Love tour.

“What an honor to share these life-changing lyrics everywhere we go,” said Phil Collingsworth, Sr. “With this modern hymn being written specifically for The Collingsworth Family, it has been a joy to watch audiences everywhere come alive as they internalize the truth in these words. One of the three writers, himself an amazing producer (Wayne Haun), wanted David Clydesdale to produce this one, as Wayne was excited to see what David would do with it. David Clydesdale never disappoints and he took it way over the top !!”

“The Lamb,” co-written by Haun, Jeff Bumgardner, and Joel Lindsey, is on The Collingsworth Family’s GMA Dove-nominated Mercy and Love project.

StowTown Records Artist Announces Changes

Nashville, TN (August 17, 2020)
Libbi Perry Stuffle of The Perrys has announced changes for their group. As we all know, we are living through unprecedented times as Covid-19 has altered the landscape of what we all knew to be normal. The music industry, and specifically Southern Gospel musicians and ministries, have worked to continue throughout these last few months. The Perrys are no exception.

“I have done everything that I can do to sustain the families of The Perrys,” reveals Stuffle. “With the current climate and not being able to work many dates, we recently had a group meeting on the bus where I shared this with the guys and encouraged them to do what they have to do to continue to support their families. As a result, both Troy Peach and Andrew Goldman have decided to pursue other opportunities. I want to thank them both for their service, their time and their love. They helped me when I needed it the most: through the health crisis with Tracy, through my surgery and recovery last fall and most recently, through the Covid-related changes. They have remained faithful and I appreciate them for that.”

“Moving forward,” continues Libbi, “I intend to fulfill our obligations for all dates that are still on our schedule. I have a lot of great friends in this industry, a lot of great singers, and they have offered to help me meet these obligations so that the quality of the ministry and music of The Perrys continues as expected. In time, when things open up, I hope to find permanent replacements for these two positions. But until then, I’m grateful for these friends who have come alongside me to walk with me through this time. I love this music; I don’t want it to go away and I don’t want The Perrys to go away. I am moving forward with great hope and anticipation. You will hear more from Troy and Andrew in the days ahead as they transition to new places in their ministries. But I wanted you to hear from me to know how much I love and appreciate my guys.”
