Saturday Selections – January 5th

Wow, has it really been almost a month since my last post?! My apologies…

Without further ado, here are my Saturday Selections for this week.

1. Remember the Music

Lynn has been one of my go-to’s lately for fresh YouTube videos. Here’s another great one, taped at the Great Smokies Praisefest. It features in my opinion the best tenor today, the best baritone all-time, the best bass today, and the lead from one of the best groups on the road today.

2. Wedding Music

This was from the New Year’s Singing that MTQ and GV did together on 12/29. I believe the lineup is Allman, Trammell, Trammell, Barker.

3. Soul’d Out

If Soul’d Out keeps pulling out material like this, look out!

4. Dan Keeton

With the announcement of Keeton’s resignation from Gold City, I thought it pertinent to highlight Keeton in one of his final performances. Here he and Gold City share the stage with a young group from Georgia called Appointed Quartet at a New Year’s Eve concert.

5. Simply the Best

This is an old video, but I just came across it recently. With 3 of the videos so far being Cathedrals’ songs, I thought it was fitting to end this post with the legendary quartet. This is from 1991, and George is just showing off here…

Hope you enjoyed my first Saturday Selections of 2013!

Saturday Selections: December 8th

Saturday came so fast this week that I forgot to put a thread up. Here we go.

1. Josh Horrell of Declaration Trio

2. A Duel of the Basses

I love it when two singers have a sing-off, and that’s exactly what happens in this clip. L5 and Greater Vision were in concert together. Matt Fouch dueled in this clip with 17-year old Avery Wolfe (Gerald’s son).

All I know is, I hope Caleb Garms is reading this and learns this song so he and Matt can have a sing-off the next time Legacy Five is in Minnesota. Ha!

Now for some Christmas selections…

3. Collingsworth Family DVD Preview

4. Riley Harrison Clark sings “Mary Did You Know”

Riley is one of my favorite young tenors. The pacing and vocal control in this video is strong throughout.

5. Mark Trammell

Saturday Selections: December 1, 2012

New series I’m starting today. Saturday Selections will be a compilations of some of my favorite videos of the week that may not have been big enough for a stand-alone post, or ones I simply didn’t get posted. Here we go:

1. The Garms Family interviews the legendary Daniel J. Mount

I know this was over a week ago, but I just never got around to posting it. I’m extremely jealous that they got this insider access.

2. The Collingsworth Family sings At Calvary

Its an old song…that never gets old! The Collingsworth Family might be the best in our genre at taking old hymns and songs and making them sound fresh without eliminating any of the song’s integrity. This version gives me chills!

3. Ian Owens with Soul’d Out Quartet

Footage has been circulating over the past couple weeks of Soul’d Out Quartet with their new bass Ian Owens. Since I haven’t shared any here yet, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity. Here he is introduced by Matt Rankin, (who said he “wasn’t expecting [Ian] to be this good”) singing The Old Rugged Cross.

4. “Uncle” Pat’s Biggest Fan

File this one under the cuteness category. Here are two videos of Pat Barker’s nephew listening to his favorite song sung by his favorite group. The first video he’s listening to a CD, in the second video he is at a concert. I absolutely love seeing little kids who grow up on this music!


5. The Latest Southern Gospel Concept Video

Brian Free & Assurance is the latest to jump into the music video scene, and this might be my favorite one yet! Here’s BFA and their music video of I Want To Be That Man, along with a video of behind-the-scenes footage.
