OH MY…!!! All I can say is that I’m totally amazed, an honored to find myself in this position!! I can only say thank you to Roger for all he has done to help me not only get my stuff OUT there, but for teaching me what I needed to learn to get this accomplished… and then for just the constant encouragement when I dealt with things that seemed beyond me. Then I want to thank Bruce Elrod also for being the one who ‘pushed’ this idea of these old songs. I always LOVED them.. from the time I was a child; listening to my dear mother sing all these songs. Then to the DJ’s who have picked up on my music and shared it with the world. Then there is all my family and friends who have stood with me, loved me, encouraged me to keep on going. And last but not LEAST.. is my Creator, and Savior, Jesus Christ for loving me, saving me, and showing His grace and mercy to bring me to this place in my life!! I’m sooooooo BLESSED!!!
We at Rogers Music Promotions would like to congratulate Connie Hall on behalf of her new release on “Momma’s O’ Appalachian Music”
Here are some emails from Bruce Elrod with CashBox Magazine;
the first one being a message from Ed Russel with CastleRecords.comfrom Hendersonville, Tn. in which stated:
“This is some of the best old type gospel music I’ve listened to in a long time. I’m not sure there is a market for it in this day and time but there should be. Connie nailed the vocals and the musicians were right in the pocket of this recording. Some of these songs I had never heard before but most were old favorites of mine. It would be worth it if she had the budget to try and market this. This is one album I’m going to keep as I really like every cut on the album.”
The second message being from, Karvin Johnson K.E.S. distribution network from Chicago, Ill.
I’m so happy to hear these beautiful timeless Gospel classics. It brought back so many memories of when my mother would sit all of us kids on the floor in the living room and she would sing these songs to us as if she was in concert…lol, those we’re priceless times.
Let me know how we could be and added value by getting this music out to the world ie Digital and Physical Distribution, Radio, TV, Press Campaign etc. I’ll call you on Monday. Have a great weekend! Best regards, Karvin Johnson
As many of you know.. Appalachian music began in the 1920’s. (It may have began earlier). It’s next big comeback was in the 50’s and 60’s.. and continues to live on today, in 2017.
