From The Perrys Online Newsletter, July 18, 2012:
Yes, we are still a live!! We know it's been forever since you've heard from us, but it seems time just gets away from us day by day! But, everyone is doing well and kicking! :0)
We will start by bringing you up to date on what's been going on and some new product that has been released lately.
One exciting thing that happened back in April of this year, happened at the Gospel Music Association Dove Awards in Atlanta, GA. The Perrys won their first ever Dove Award for Southern Gospel Song of the Year with CELEBRATE ME HOME, written by Wayne Haun and Joel Lindsey!! We were in Myrtle Beach, SC at the Singing in the Sun when we received the call that it had won! We were BEYOND excited! Celebrate Me Home (Blue Skies project) was also nominated in the top 5 over-all GMA Song of the Year along with Casting Crowns, Jason Crabb and Laura Story. This was truly a blessing from God and all praise, glory and honor belongs to HIM!
For the first time in six years The Perrys have finally released a brand new DVD, recorded live in Nashville, TN at Oak Tree Studios, CELEBRATE ME HOME. This DVD has songs from a mixture of our recordings. Some of the songs are: Plan of Salvation, Potter Knows the Clay, Great is Thy Faithfulness, Celebrate Me Home, If You Knew Him, Every Time I Need Him and others. This DVD contains interviews from each member of The Perrys along with behind the scenes stories. Celebrate Me Home is now available from our website: www.perrysministries.com.
Summer is in full swing and that means a lot of big concerts for The Perrys. Here's a couple of some really special concerts!
For more summer concerts, please check out our schedule below or go to our website www.perrysministries.com.
We've received a bunch of email asking about how Tracy's health has been. Tracy is doing incredible! He is coming up on the two year anniversary of his open heart surgery and is a 100 lbs lighter! He has picked back up on golfing and says the movement of the game has helped him work out a lot of the soreness in chest muscles. We give God all the praise for bringing Tracy this far! Thanks for all the prayers!
The Perrys are in the middle of working on a new project set to release in the fall. We will give you more details on the release date, songs and title as we get everything completed. We are hoping to have pre-releases at NQC in Louisville, KY in September. Speaking of new projects, Lib's solo project "JOURNEY" is doing great! She has a single out to radio on "JESUS HOLD MY HAND." Please call your local Gospel station and request this song along with The Perry's new single, Every Time I Need Him which is currently at #4 on the Singing News Charts.
Don't forget the National Quartet Convention is coming up September 10 - 15, 2012 in Louisville, KY. The Perrys will be singing on Monday, Friday and Saturday nights. For more info go to www.natqc.com.
Well, that just about does it for now. We hope to see you at a concert soon! Remember to pray for us daily! We love you and appreciate all your love, prayers and support!
