Hey Friends! :)

July 15 has been a big day for us.  Rickey had a PET scan.

The Doctor said that everything looked normal and as far as he was concerned, Rickey is cured! We want to thank all of you for praying and for standing with us through this difficult time. God is so good and faithful!

Pray Now-favoriteAlso on the same day, July 15, we found out that Pray Now is still climbing the Southern Gospel Music charts. It is number one for several weeks now, and number 3 for the monthly Singing News Magazine charts. We are praying it up to the number one position for next month!! It is amazing how timely the song is during this time in our lives. Praise the Lord! :)

We would love to see y’all! Be sure to check our schedule.

Love y’all, Karen

A Note From Rickey

rickey-gooch-announcementThanks everyone for your prayers. I have been overwhelmed by your kindness and support. The Doctor says that the PET scan looks good and normal, and as far as he is concerned, I am cured. I will go for a checkup once a month over the next year. Please continue to pray for healing of the inner lining of my mouth, tongue, and the saliva glands. It is still a challenge to eat certain foods. With the Lord’s help, I am persevering.

Thanks for lifting me up through all of this. It has been a trying time but God has been faithful.

Love y’all,
Rickey Gooch

Hey Friends :)

A few days ago I posted this short video while sitting on my porch at home. I feel led to share this with you all. God answers prayer!!

Rickey 5-2015It is hard to believe that July is already here! We are halfway through the year and what a year it has been! Honestly, the Lord has remained faithful through every trial and heartache. Rickey continues to improve every day. He will have a PET scan on July 15. Please mark your calendars and join with us in prayer for his complete healing. God is able! You all have been so precious to us. Thank you for every email, card, phone call, and most of all for every prayer of encouragement. Rickey is persevering.

I did not realize how much we needed a vacation until we got settled in and had no agenda. Rickey was able to eat more and he rested very well. We loved our family time on the beach, movies, eating, and just sitting around laughing and talking. Now we are ready to get about God’s business! Half of the year has passed…the next half is going to be amazing. We are ready.

graduateWe have three senior graduates! My son, Matthew, graduated from Liberty University Online College. My daughter, Kari, graduated from Pensacola Christian Academy ABEKA program. Susan’s son, Joseph, graduated from Lumpkin County High School. Kari and Joseph will pursue a college degree starting in the Fall. We are very proud of our kids!

Karen Peck & New River Releases
Highly Anticipated Album,


Pray Now-favorite


Hendersonville, TN (April 28, 2015) – Daywind Records is proud to announce the release of Pray Now from Karen Peck & New River. This project, which is the group’s newest release since the 2013 Dove Award winning album, Revival, speaks of the power of prayer and the many ways in which it has touched lives. This timely message resonates with a world searching for hope and encouragement that can only be found in the Lord.

Pray Now was produced by Wayne Haun and includes songs written by Karen Peck Gooch, Kenna West, Gerald Crabb, Jason Cox and many more. The first single and title track, ‘Pray Now,’ shipped to radio in March and debuted at #36 on the Singing News Radio Chart. In anticipation of the album release, a lyric video was shared on social media this week, and the group announced the debut of their new music video for ‘Pray Now’ on Tuesday.

“It amazes me how at times God provides the perfect message through song in such a way that we can’t deny it’s His doing,” shares Scott Godsey, VP & Director of A&R at Daywind Records. “When we began listening to songs for this project many months ago, none of us had any way of knowing how much the song ‘Pray Now’ specifically would mean to this group and family. I’m excited to see how this album touches the lives of those who hear it and can identify with its significant message.”

Pray Now is available at Christian retail stores across the country and digitally at iTunes and other outlets. Bulk purchasing for gift and ministry purposes is available by calling 1-800-635-9581.

Daywind Records is home to an award-winning roster of artists, including Leagcy Five, Adam Crabb, Browders, Jim Brady Trio, Greater Vision, Joseph Habedank, Adam Crabb, Blackwood Brothers, Bowling Family, Tribute, Nelons, Brian Free & Assurance, and Wilburn & Wilburn, among others.
