We were so glad to see many of you at Gaither Family Fest in Gatlinburg over the weekend, and we hope the rest of you will be able to join us next year. What a wonderful time of fellowship, laughter, insightful teaching ... and most of all, great music! We'll be posting some photos and memories over the next few days. And, if you were there, please send an email to dpatterson@salempublishing.com and let us know what your favorite moments were!

And speaking of Gaither Homecoming music, we'd love to know your answer to this question: What is your favorite Gaither Homecoming video ... and why? If you have a moment, please click here and leave a comment.

A thought from the Word...

Colossians 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Guy Penrod's brand-new album, Worship, has just released today! After recording traditional church songs on his Hymns project, Guy now brings his powerhouse vocals to popular modern worship songs, including "Shout to the Lord," "Victory in Jesus," "You Never Let Go" and others. At Family Fest this past weekend, Guy gave an amazing performance of "Revelation Song," also on the project. Click here for more details!
We were sad to hear that singer and pastor Dr. Bobby Clark passed away on Thursday, May 22. Bobby sang with many quartets including the Dixie Echoes and the Weatherfords, but he was also the original first tenor of the beloved Cathedral Quartet. Click here to read more.
Janet Paschal never ceases to amaze us! If it were not enough that she sings beautifully and shares deep spiritual insights (see "Treasures" in Homecoming Magazine), she has now been honored for her academic achievements. Janet began pursuing a business degree a few years ago and is now being recognized as an outstanding scholar. To read about it, click here!

We had a great visit with the Martins today and chatted about Family Fest, touring with Mark Lowry ... and their brand-new album released today, A Cappella. If you enjoy a cappella music, or just terrific singing in general, you'll love this CD! We'll post that interview at HomecomingMagazine.com soon.
