It’s a New Day for legendary vocal group, The Martins. Their three-year labor of love is complete, and the end result is a brand new recording, appropriately titled New Day. Filled with all new songs, featuring the trio’s unmistakable harmonies, the recording was produced by multi-platinum selling Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus. Released earlier this summer (June 21), the recording marks the first for siblings Judy, Jonathan and Joyce (pictured l-r in attached jpg) in a decade.
During the 1990s, The Martins rose to national and international success, showcasing their stunning and distinctive harmonies before a vast array of audiences, from Bill Gaither’s multi-award winning Homecoming Video and Concert Series to the White House to Carnegie Hall. Over the years, the trio garnered six Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association, a Grammy nomination and multiple hit songs.
After a 10-year hiatus from touring together, the siblings return this year with renewed family bonds, as they take a fresh step forward both musically and spiritually. Energized and excited about the future, the three are thrilled to be back on stage together and are delighted by the early success of New Day, as well as the new Gaither Music Group DVD, entitled The Best Of The Martins. The DVD captures some of the trio’s most unforgettable highlights from the multi-platinum selling Gaither Homecoming Video Series. The television special with highlights from the DVD will air throughout the summer and into the fall on popular networks including GAC, RFD, CTN, GMC, INSP, FamilyNet, CTS and TBN.
“The Martins have a history of hits and a highly anticipated album that is now available,” Britt states. “During these episodes, listeners can hear about The Martins’ humble beginnings and their chart-topping success. We'll follow the journey of these three singing siblings from restroom acoustics to Carnegie Hall! These are very special broadcasts.”
