Harmony Road TV Produces Original Christmas Special
Artists include Randy and Sheri Miller, Canaan’s Crossing and John R. Bowman
Signal Mountain, TN Recently several award winning gospel and bluegrass singers and musicians gathered in a cabin in Monteagle, Tennessee to perform on “A Harmony Road Christmas”, the program’s original Christmas production for 2014. The episode will contain classic and newer Christmas songs, personal Christmas memories and a special reading of the Christmas Story, from the Book of Luke by program host Les Butler.
“It was a special day inside the cabin at Jim Oliver’s Smokehouse in Monteagle. The music and spirit were great as these wonderful musicians and singers performed for the taping of “It’s a Harmony Road Christmas” said Roger Spears, program producer. “We had planned to produce an acoustic program with an “Americana” feel and we weren’t disappointed. Canaan’s Crossing, John Bowman with guest Troy Engle, and Randy and Sheri Miller proved why they are considered top performers, but even more importantly, dedicated Christians with the desire to reach people through their music”, he concluded.
“Les Butler’s hosting and his beautiful reading of the Christmas Story will round out an entertaining and inspirational program” added Spears.
Tim Maze of Canaan’s Crossing added “To be in thousands of homes to celebrate the Christmas season is such an honor and blessing. Our thanks to Harmony Road for asking us to be a part of this great event”.
Allan Rhodes of Rhodes Media Center and Harmony Road Productions was technical director for the production, providing camera work and production. Bill Lord from Nashville, Tennessee assisted with audio and Jim Oliver’s Smokehouse added location assistance and hospitality services.
