TBN Hosts Southern Gospel Music's Harmony Honors April 7th From Nashville's Trinity Music City — Special Guest Former Attorney General John Ashcroft
NASHVILLE (April 4, 2014) — Southern Gospel Music will be front and center Monday April 7th on the Trinity Broadcasting Network as TBN hosts the Southern Gospel Music Guild's 2014 Harmony Honors from the famed Trinity Music City in Nashville.
The annual Harmony Honors recognize the best and brightest singers, songwriters, quartets, groups, and innovators in this unique American musical genre that has comforted, inspired, and entertained generations of fans.
This year the Harmony Honors will recognize two of Southern Gospel Music's most storied publishing resources: Pathway Press and Stamps-Baxter Music. Southern Gospel aficionados will recognize Pathway Press as publisher of the classic “Red Back” Church Hymnal, used by thousands of churches across the South for over sixty years. Generations of gospel groups have dipped into the depths of the old “Red Back” hymnal for classic quartet and convention songs by such legendary songwriters as Albert Brumley, Vep Ellis, Luther Presley, Lee Roy Abernathy, and many others.
As for Stamps-Baxter Music, its classic “shaped-note” song books — with titles like Super Specials, Crystal Rays, Silver Tones, and Pearls of Paradise — have been used and cherished by Southern Gospel artists for over 75 years.
Among the musical guests for this year's Harmony Honors will be some of the most beloved and popular names in Southern Gospel Music, including the LeFevre Quartet, the Perrys, the Tribute Quartet, Legacy Five, Three Bridges, the Nelons, Gerald Wolfe from Greater Vision, Karen Peck and New River, the Whisnants, and the Mylon Hayes Family.
Also appearing will be a special TBN guest, former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, himself an accomplished musician and long-time fan of Southern Gospel Music.
Hosting the evening of honors and plenty of good old-fashioned Southern Gospel Music will be Grammy Award-winning Christian music artist Jason Crabb.
TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch noted that Southern Gospel Music has been a regular part of TBN's history over the past 40-plus years. “The rich harmonies and inspirational message of this sacred music have been a blessing to generations of TBN viewers,” he said. “We're privileged to host this very special evening.”
Tune in Monday April 7th at 7 p.m. Pacific (9 p.m. Central, 10 p.m. Eastern) as TBN and Grammy Award-winning Christian music artist Jason Crabb host a special presentation of the Southern Gospel Music Guild's 2014 Harmony Honors.
