      Christianbook.com tends to be hit-or-miss with release dates.

    Does anyone know what channel Music City Show airs on now.? I’ve seen it listed as NRB network, Rural Network and TCT. These networks no longer carry this show. Thank you.

    In reading comments on a video that the Anchormen posted on their facebook page today, it appears that Terry Carter left about a month ago and has been replaced by Nathan Potts, formerly of the PromisedLand Quartet. No official announcement has been made, as far as I can tell. So maybe this should be considered an “unofficial” News Nugget. :-)
