Debut Project From The New Gospel Singing Caravan In Stores This Week
Hendersonville, TN (May 3, 2011) – The Blackwood Brothers, LeFevre Quartet and Chuck Wagon Gang have teamed up with Daywind Records to present a brand new recording entitled, Keeps On Rolling Along. This unique project, produced by David Staton and Mike LeFevre, provides a new generation of Gospel music lovers with a modern version of the Gospel Singing Caravan television show and tour of the 1960s. The album features classics such as “I’m Too Near Home” and “How Great Thou Art” in addition to several new songs, including the first radio single, “I Always Have A Song To Sing.” To promote the release of this collaborative project, the three groups will also be touring together for select dates this year.
“When we were putting this project together, we wanted the music and the arrangements to be very true to the original Gospel Singing Caravan of the 1960s. That is why we chose many songs from that era and specifically songs that were performed by the original Caravan,” shares David Staton and Mike LeFevre. “We also chose to put a couple of new songs on the CD that were penned from writers Dianne Wilkinson and Jerry Kelso. Both of them have an amazing ability to write music that is true to that era both musically and lyrically, so even the new songs flow well with the classic material.”
Keeps On Rolling Along is available at Christian retail stores across the country and digitally at iTunes and other outlets. Bulk purchasing for gift and ministry purposes is available by calling 1-800-635-9581.
Daywind Records is based in Hendersonville, TN and is distributed worldwide through New Day Christian Distributors. Daywind is home to such great artists as Brian Free & Assurance, Sisters and the Booth Brothers, among others.
