#NewsNuggets: 10-23-20

by | Oct 23, 2020 | News


Gaither Music Group and Country’s Family Reunion are partnering to release a DVD/CD titled Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting. The product will feature performances by Ricky Skaggs, T. Graham Brown, John Berry, The Gatlin Brothers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Jimmy Fortune, Gene Watson, The Isaacs, and others.

The Harper Agency will be handling booking arrangements for Michael Booth’s solo appearances starting in 2021. The agency already represents the Booth Brothers who are reducing their appearances to two weekends per month.

Greater Vision released a new lyric video for their song “I’ve Been Washed Clean.” Check it out below:


Many (perhaps most) artists in the Southern Gospel industry have side jobs to help pay the bills. With the reduction in concert appearances in 2020, artists have been forced to rely on their side jobs while some have launched new business ventures for additional income. Please pray they can adapt to changing conditions until they are able to again return to a full singing schedule. (Our feature photo above shows the Ball Brothers in their work gear for their new business, Basement Correctors.)
