Southern Tradition Signs With Tana Lonon Agency

Nashville, TN (August 4, 2010) – The Tana Lonon Agency (TLA) is pleased to announce the signing of SOUTHERN TRADITION to their talented roster of artists. The group will be scheduled exclusively the TLA.

Although they’re not a household name just yet, Southern Tradition has been making a big mark on Gospel music. They convey a blend of the true nostalgia Gospel music offers, with a fresh musical approach, including intricate harmonies and wonderful musicianship. Group members are Ken Taylor (lead), Mark Taylor (baritone), Thomas Nalley (tenor), Paul Allman (bass), and Tommy Fairchild (piano). Many people will remember Fairchild from his years with the GRAMMY and Dove winning Blackwood Brothers and Oak Ridge Boys.

The group second single, on Homeland Record’s Riversong label, “That's My Kind Of Music,” written by Jerry Kelso and Kristi Fitzwater, is impacting radio now. Their first single release, “Sing Along Song,” was well received at radio across the country. Both songs are from their debut album with Riversong, Sing Along With Southern Tradition.

Besides having a heart to make great music, the group’s first goal is to make a true ministry impact for the cause of Christ. They have a heart for souls and for the needs of others. They are honored to be the National Spokespersons for the International Christian Center for the Deaf (ICCD). They express that they have seen the impact music has, even on those who cannot hear. Their work with ICCD allows them to help get the word out to their audiences about ministering to the deaf in a multitude of ways.

The group’s lead singer, Ken Taylor, shared how all these gentlemen are feeling about the doors God is opening. “The hand of God never ceases to amaze me. He knows who, what, where, when, and how in our lives. I am in awe of His blessings and completely committed to walking the path that He lays out before us in this ministry. I know, without a doubt, that He led us to the Tana Lonon Agency. We feel honored to work with a lady who combines her love for God with a strong work ethic. We’re ready to continue to walk together, with Tana, into every opportunity for ministry that God brings to this quartet.”

Tana Lonon expressed her anticipation about working with Southern Tradition. “I feel so fortunate for the groups that God brings my way. Once in a while, a fairly new group comes along. Sometimes, from that first moment, I find myself feeling very strongly about learning more about them. The more I learned about Southern Tradition, the more I wanted to know. I love their heart and I love their determination to serve God. I am looking forward to our ministry partnership, as well as our great friendship.
