Celebrating Grace, a company based in Macon, Georgia, has acquired the choral catalog of Brentwood Benson from Capitol Christian Music Groups. Capitol Christian Music abruptly shut down the company in December 2021 giving customers less than two weeks to place final orders. Former Brentwood Benson executive Dale Mathews has been named Executive Vice President and says the brand will introduce new choral products as well as making catalog titles like Russell Mauldin’s popular Ready To Sing series available again.

Joseph Habedank and Scotty Inman announced a new talk show titled Offstage with Joseph & Scotty. Click HERE for details on how to watch the first season.

Philip Kolb announced he is resigning from Soul’d Out in February.

The Old Paths announced they have hired Andrew Utech to sing bass. Andrew had most recently performed with Eternal Vision who announced his departure last week. He is the twin brother of Alex Utech who sings bass for the Down East Boys


Former Dixies Echoes baritone Paul Vinson passed away on Tuesday. Vinson was the grandfather of current Dixie Echoes baritone Randy “Scoot” Shelnut Jr. A memorial service for Vinson will be held today in Pensacola, Florida.
