Artist Resource Services and Daywind announced the winner of their inaugural Lift Your Voice vocal competition is 8th Street, a male trio from Sapulpa, Oklahoma. Group members include Jonathan Thompson, Ivan Hugart, and Byron Hugart.

In a video announcement on Tuesday, Ernie Haase and Devin McGlamery jointly announced McGlamery is leaving Ernie Haase & Signature Sound to work full-time for Fellowship Of Christian Athletes. McGlamery’s replacement is former EH&SS baritone Doug Anderson.

Hendersonville, Tennessee’s mayor Jamie Clary proclaimed September 14 “The Isaacs Day.” This honor commemorates the day the popular group became members of The Grand Ole Opry.


Please pray for the family of pianist Jeff Stice who passed away on Tuesday. Stice performed with the Monitors Quartet, the Blackwood Brothers, and the Nelons in the 1980s; and the Kingdom Heirs in the late 1990s/early 2000s. He also co-founded two popular male quartets: Perfect Heart in 1990 and Integrity Quartet (now Triumphant Quartet) in 2002.

    With the news of Doug rejoining Cana’s Voice, I wonder what that means for the future of Cana’s Voice???? Ernie mentioned in the video that Doug had to finish some “final” Cana’s Voice concerts before he begins with EHSS in November. Maybe I am reading too much into that, but I get this sense that Cana’s Voice might not continue. I do hope I am wrong about that. They have created some amazing music together in the past few years.

      Ernie’s use of the word “final” pretty clearly means that Doug will no longer be singing with Cana’s Voice.

      Whether or not Cana’s Voice is going to move forward with another vocalist or cease recording/touring was not raised in the video.

        Yeah, the word “final” definitely settled in my spirit that Doug would not longer be with Cana’s Voice.. Even though it wasn’t raised in the video, which wouldn’t have been a good time to do so, I highly doubt the group will continue with a new vocalist. Those three are family. I could be way off with my prediction. I imagine we will hear soon enough. Personally, I would enjoy seeing Cana’s Voice move forward. If the CV chapter does close though, they did give us two incredible projects. I am happy for Doug. He will make an amazing addition to EHSS, again :)

    I do realize that Jody McBrayer splits time with Avalon, but EHSS is on the road more frequently. I meant to include that in my first comment lol
