Stowtown Records Releases New Music From Doug Anderson

Nashville, TN—StowTown Records has announced the release of a brand new recording by singer/songwriter Doug AndersonYesterday, Today, and Tomorrow is a 12-song collection that highlights the exceptional vocal abilities that have made Anderson a fan favorite for over two decades.

Anderson was introduced to audiences in 2002 when he joined the newly formed Signature Sound Quartet, led by multi-award-winning tenor Ernie Haase. Anderson’s popularity also grew as the group quickly rose to the pinnacle of the gospel music scene. His smooth, rich, baritone voice and fun-loving personality captured the hearts of fans worldwide as the group toured with Bill Gaither and The Gaither Vocal Band.

In addition to maintaining a steady touring schedule with Ernie Haase & Signature Sound over the past few years, Anderson has also thrilled audiences as a member of the trio Cana’s Voice, formed with longtime friends and vocalists TaRanda Greene and Jody McBrayer.

Anderson released his first solo recording in 2011. Dreamin’ Wide Awake became an instant hit with fans, who embraced the recording’s versatility, energy, and thought-provoking lyrical content. It went on to win the 2012 GMA Dove Award® for Country Album of the Year. In 2014, his sophomore solo release, Drive, earned Anderson another GMA Dove Award® for Country Album of the Year. He recorded a third solo project, The Only One, in 2016. One year later, Anderson delighted fans with the release of his Back Porch Christmas recording, which featured a collection of traditional favorites and original songs.

With this latest StowTown endeavor, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, Anderson combines eight previously released cuts with four brand-new tunes penned with fellow songwriters Jeff BumgardnerJoel LindseyKevin Winebarger, and the recording’s producer, 14-time Grammy® nominee Wayne Haun. The debut single, “Until It Was Me,” was sent to radio in early May.

“Until It Was Me” is just one of several songs expected to be released to radio, according to StowTown Records President and CEO Landon Beene. “This recording contains so much great music,” Beene states. “’Keep On Shining’ is a fun, upbeat song of encouragement that is so needed in today’s climate. ‘Thank God For Tomorrow’ is a straight-up traditional cut with a powerful lyric that is so reminiscent of the classic country feel. Doug’s smooth, rich tones bring this song to life, and I think it’s going to be an instant hit.”

Just as Beene conveys excitement about the potential of the new songs featured on Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, Anderson is also expecting great things from the recording. One song he especially loves is a special cut written by longtime friend Joel Lindsey. “One of my favorites is ‘What Held Me,’” Anderson shares. “Honestly, it’s my personal testimony. So many times we take our burdens to the Lord and never fully trust that He can handle them, so we pick them back up. But it’s only in true and total surrender we can be free. This is one of the most powerful songs I have heard in a long time. I know it will bring great encouragement to listeners.”

Appropriately titled, this project is a collection of past, present and future hits. From beginning to end, this recording conveys the powerful message of God’s goodness, mercy and grace that stands the test of time and is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is distributed exclusively by Provident/Sony and is at digital and retail outlets worldwide. Stream the full project here.

Heart 2 Heart Releases New Radio Single

Nashville, TN —Heart 2 Heart‘s powerful new single, “When The Saints Begin To Pray,” has been released to Southern Gospel radio stations nationwide. The song is a driving toe-tapper written by prolific writers John Darin Rowsey and Reba Rambo.

The release marks the debut single from the group’s upcoming recording Heart 2 Heart 2.0, set to be released in conjunction with the 2024 National Quartet Convention in September. The recording, produced by talented singer/songwriter & producer John Darin Rowsey, marks the first from the group since the addition of Ashleigh and Riley Dotson.

For 25 years, H2H has traveled as a trio, comprised of the husband/wife team of David and Deana Kiser with long-time friend Rhonda House. In 2023, the Kisers’ daughter, Ashleigh, and husband, Riley, joined the group, creating a multi-dimensional sound that has been embraced overwhelmingly by audiences since their debut on the stage of the National Quartet Convention last September.

“The response has been incredible,” group founder David Kiser states. “Ashleigh and Riley have brought a youthful energy to the group. Audiences seem to love it, and of course, Deana and I are thrilled to be able to travel and sing with our daughter and son-in-law.”

The new single from H2H is an upbeat, Pentecostal-style tune that is a reminder of the power of prayer.

“Great things happen when we pray,” Kiser shares. “Prayer brings heaven’s power to earth and invades our circumstances. Prayer is the most powerful force on earth, and this song is a reminder of how our nation, especially in the current political climate, needs to return to prayer.”

According to radio promoter Jeff O’Neal, who has enjoyed promoting many Number One Southern Gospel hits over the past three decades, this song is one radio audiences are going to love.

“This is a GREAT UPBEAT song with a powerful message conveying our need for prayer,” O’Neal says. “I love the twist the chorus takes on the Lord’s prayer. I know audiences will really enjoy this one.”

The Kingdom Heirs’ “Until Prayer Changes Me” Talks About the Transformative Power of Talking to God

Arden, North Carolina — They may be a legendary group with decades of music already behind them, but the Kingdom Heirs are taking an approach to releasing music that’s as forward-looking as today’s headlines. Less than two months after issuing what will eventually be the title track of a new collection — and just weeks after the announcement that the beloved Southern Gospel ensemble’s musicians are in the Singing News Fan Awards Top 5 — the Sonlite Records recording artists are back with new music. Cast as a stately country waltz, with pedal steel guitar and lush strings punctuating soaring vocals, “Until Prayer Changes Me” offers a heartfelt look at the transformative power of prayer.

“From the moment I heard the first words of this song, I knew that it was a song the Kingdom Heirs needed to record,” affirms Chris Bryant, whose soulful voice is at the fore throughout the song. “It’s one of the most relatable messages in song that I have heard in a very long time. There’s not a believer out there who hasn’t found themselves on their knees asking God ‘why?’ Those are often some of the most difficult moments of our lives.”

Penned by veteran songwriter Janice Crow, “Until Prayer Changes Me” offers a vivid depiction of how prayer can bring reassurance of God’s mercy in times of trouble—and how it can change the believer rather than the circumstances they face:

Sometimes my burdens send me to my knees
With problems I don’t understand
I ask God to change it so I can arrange it
According to my master plan
But when I remember who parted the sea
And hung all the stars in the blue
I stop and surrender to the only heart mender
Who knows just what I need to do

Says Bryant, “This song reminds us that sometimes God doesn’t change our situation—sometimes He changes US! He gives us peace, assurance that He is still in control, and grace to make it through. We pray that this song touches so many people as it has us.”

Peach Goldman Releases Debut Project With StowTown Records

Nashville, TN – Exciting new music comes in hot this summer from StowTown Records with the release of the debut recording from dynamic vocal team, Peach Goldman. Since bursting on the Christian music scene in early 2024, Peach Goldman has quickly gained the attention of fans and industry tastemakers alike. Destined for success, Peach Goldman is the culmination of three longtime friends who share a common love of music and a deep desire to present the message of the Gospel with excellence.

Comprised of husband/wife duo Troy and Katy Peach, along with their dear friend Andrew Goldman, the trio collectively possesses decades of musical experience, touring with such popular groups as The Perrys, The Nelons, The Mike Speck Trio, The Wilburns and The Steeles. Possessing such a rich history in the gospel music arena, it’s no surprise that the trio has already found their place in the industry. Their first national radio single, “Grace Will Lead You Home,” became the highest charting debut song ever from a new artist. Additionally, their second single, “Storms I Never See,” which released in May, is already receiving rave reviews, charting on stations in over two dozen markets. “It’s absolutely amazing to see what God has already done through the ministry of Peach Goldman,” Stowtown Records President and CEO Landon Beene states. “We are also thrilled to be a part of this new ministry and excited about the great things the future holds for Troy, Katy and Andrew.”

Where You Are merges the creative gifts of Peach Goldman with multi-GMA Dove Award® winning and Grammy® nominated producer, Wayne Haun, and features songs by such prolific writers as Don West, Joel Lindsey, Twila LaBar, Cindi Ballard, Ray Davis and Sue C. Smith, just to name a few. Each arrangement possesses progressive, rich vocals, complemented by first-class orchestrations and instrumentation by many of the industry’s most gifted musicians, including Jason Webb, Gordon Mote, Kevin Williams, Jeremy Medkiff and Trey Ivey. The end result is a musical collection that even exceeded the expectations of their beloved producer himself. “I’ve known these three for years and have worked with them countless times in the studio,” Haun shares. “I knew they would sound great together, but working with them on this particular project far exceeded my expectations. Their blend is fresh, exciting and one that fans are going to love.”

From the worshipful “I Tremble” to the acoustical “For My Good” to the moving ballad “Grace Meets You Where You Are,” this collection of songs meets each listener exactly where they are. “Our goal was to deliver multiple messages for the seasons of life that each Christian goes through,” Troy Peach explains, “and we believe this recording does just that. God is good. He is faithful, and His grace knows no end. He meets us right where we are in our walk, and that’s good news!”

For Christian music lovers there’s more good news! Peach Goldman plans to deliver great music for many years to come. Where You Are is distributed exclusively by Provident/Sony and is available at digital and retail outlets worldwide. Listen to the full project here.
