From Karen Peck and New River email newsletter February 23, 2011:
We are very excited and honored to receive two Dove nominations!
Album: Reach Out
Country Song: Good Things Are Happening
We worked very hard on this album and are thankful to all of those who voted. (KPNR is about serving the Lord and doing His work, however, we love it when we feel that people are connecting with our songs!)
We had a great time on the “Singing at Sea” cruise last week. It averaged in the upper 70s, making the weather absolutely perfect. It was a special treat to have Rickey’s momma and friend, Jean, with us. They had a blast! We will be going back to the Bahamas in February of 2013. If you want to go with us just send us an email. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Be sure to tell Templeton Tours that you are signing up with KPNR.
As always we want to say a very special thanks to all the DJ’s for playing our music. We just found out that “Mighty Big God” is #16. Yay! Also, we want to thank everyone for calling into your local radio stations and requesting it.
Abraham Productions is gearing up for the Singing In The Sun concerts starting April 17 and running through April 21 in Myrtle Beach, SC. This is an event you will not want to miss! You can purchase tickets at: www.abrahamproductions.net KPNR will be there on Saturday night. Keep in mind Abraham Productions features the finest in Southern Gospel Music along with the greatest speakers. At the 2011 event, 205 people were saved! I’m getting so excited about being there!
We are already casting our votes for the 2012 SGMA Hall of Fame Inductees. The SGMA Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and the Singing News Fan Awards will be October 3 at Dollywood. Be sure to go to www.sgma.org to become a member of SGMA!
We would love for you to come and see us some time when we’re in your area. Remember we’re on Facebook and you can follow us on Twitter.
