Nashville, TN (October 4, 2018) The National Quartet Convention brings together fans and the best Southern Gospel artists every year. This year, many Butler Music Group and Family Music Group artists were featured on stage, at special events, radio and television.
The Williamsons have had another incredible year that included the release of a new album, multiple hit songs, awards, and nominations. While there, they packed in radio and TV interviews from across the nation including being featured as guests on the Singing News Radio Network, the Gospel Greats and more!
BMG/FMG was honored to have numerous artists in Southern Gospel Music to appear with them at the BMG booth including; Jason Davidson, Cheri Taylor, Ferguson Family, Heaven’s Mountain Band, Old Time Preachers Quartet, GloryWay Quartet and Matt Felts.
Jason Davidson, who has had multiple Singing News Top 40 hits, was there and performed on a morning showcase. “Jason is the kind of singer that leaves other singers in awe. Lynda Randall made a point to find Jason and tell him how in awe she is over his singing. That just doesn’t happen, “stated Les Butler.
Cheri Taylor appeared at the BMG booth for much of the week. Cheri is new to radio but has quickly gained airplay across the country and had many radio and television interviews during NQC week.
Several BMG artists participated in the afternoon showcases. This year's showcases were packed with crowds often overflowing into the hallways. The Ferguson Family performed several songs from their latest album, Living For the Call. GloryWay Quartet thrilled the crowd with their big sound and dynamic stage energy. “If you love quartet singing, then you will love these guys. They have a great sound and are sure to make waves this year,” added Les Butler.
Heaven’s Mountain Band doesn’t often get to attend NQC due to their busy schedules, but they made room in their schedules to make sure it happened this year. DJs and fans flocked to them at the BMG table. Butler states, “when you have 7 consecutive #1 songs, you are obviously doing something right. Everybody, and I do mean everybody, loves Heaven’s Mountain Band!
The Butler Music Group booth was a buzz all week as DJ’s and other media outlets interviewed and met BMG’s family of artists. Along with all the excitement surrounding BMG's artists, the Butler Music Group booth had its own share of exciting things happening. BMG had their own “media center.” Gospel Music Today set up their TV set; SGN Scoops and WJGM both were in the BMG booth, interviewing artists all week. The BMG booth was one of the busiest spots in the building.
In addition to representing all the BMG and FMG artists, Les Butler was there on behalf of the Old Time Preachers QT. On Thursday fellow quartet members Tim Owens and Bob Sellers were on site to work a lot of TV, radio, print and online media. Co-founder and bass vocalist Mike Holcomb was busy preaching a revival and was not able to attend this year.
Like Les, Matt Felts was busy working with the BMG and FMG artists. However, he found some time to meet the fans and stop by many media outlets while in Pigeon Forge.
The National Quartet Convention typically gives the Southern Gospel industry and fans a glimpse of who to watch the upcoming year. Butler Music Group and Family Music Group made sure that all eyes will be on them and their artists this year.
