I Choose Christ #1 – We’re so excited and blessed!

Hey Friends!

We just found out today that our radio single ‘I Choose Christ’ is #1!!! We are extremely grateful for the response of ‘I Choose Christ.’

Thanks to the writers, Gerald Crabb, Sue C. Smith, and Jason Cox, for saying exactly what we all want to say. This is the last radio single from our PRAY NOW CD and it’s a great song to sum up this particular season in our ministry. ‘I Choose Christ’ will always be our anthem.

We especially thank our precious radio DJ friends for playing our music and standing with us all of these years. Also thanks to everyone who takes the time to call in and request our music. Together we can make a difference for the Kingdom!

There are still a few more seats left for the ISRAEL trip. We would love for y’all to join us July 17-26!! We are getting close!

Our annual Homecoming is coming up in June on Father’s Day weekend. Y’all be sure to plan on being there! It is going to be amazing!

Thanks for your continued prayers and support.

Love and prayers to all of you!!  Karen

Hello From The West

Hey Friends!

We are still on the road! It has been a great three week trip out west. Today we are in Denver, Co. It is beautiful out here! We’ve had great concerts and we’ve met some of the most wonderful people. We are very thankful to the Lord for His anointing on every service. That is what keeps us going.

On a fun note, yesterday we stopped in Roswell, New Mexico and visited the UFO Museum. Y’all!! We loved it! Lol 🙂

Now we’re working our way back to Ga. Saturday night will be Jeff & Sheri Easter’s Homecoming in Lincolnton, Ga. and we can’t think of a better way to spend our last day of the trip than with our dear friends! Then we will finally be home on Mother’s Day. Looking forward to spending time with Rickey’s sweet Mom and also my precious Mom on Sunday.

Emily Ann Roberts Biography

Emily Ann Roberts is an 18 year old singer/songwriter/musician. Growing up in East Tennessee Emily Ann has been influenced by a wide variety of music. Her true love lies in the old country and gospel mixed with bluegrass influences. She has been described as having an “old soul” because of her love for vintage country and gospel and her unique ability to give it a modern day sound.

Emily Ann’s most recent achievement was placing runner up on season 9 of NBC TV’s “The Voice”. During her time on the show, she had the opportunity to perform with Blake Shelton and Ricky Skaggs and was mentored by Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton. Emily Ann had two #1 songs on the country iTunes and placed in the top ten of the overall two times as well.

Emily Ann’s East Tennessee sound places her on a path all her own. She appeals to all ages from the younger listeners as well as the adults looking for the gospel and country sound they are longing to hear.

Heading Out!

Hey Friends!

We had an amazing Easter Sunday with our family. Honestly I think it was one of the best ever. I count my blessings that we still have with us our Mom, Step-dad, and Mother-in-law. They are treasures and have poured so much love and wisdom into our ministry.

We found out on Good Friday that our radio song I CHOOSE CHRIST has charted at #2!! We are beside ourselves! This song says everything we would want to say. No matter what we will face in life, we choose Christ every time!

This week we are leaving out for three weeks! It’s hard to believe that Singing In The Sun in Myrtle Beach is next week. KPNR will be there all week then we will start traveling to California. Lol (Yes we will be in our bus the whole trip.) Matthew got his CDL license to help Tripp and Rickey with the driving. We are very excited about going for the first time to the Great Western Fan Festival in Visalia, CA. We will also be working our way there and back so we are visiting places we’ve never performed. Thank the Lord for opening new doors!

We only have a few more seats available on the July 17-26 Israel tour. Y’all sign up with KPNR for this awesome trip of a lifetime!!

Remember our annual Homecoming is coming up Father’s Day Weekend (June 16-17) in DAHLONEGA, GA. We would love for you to visit our historical town. It will be a fun time for all of us!

Be watching for our new album. Hope For All Nations will be released in June. We will be taking pre-orders soon!

Have a wonderful week!!

Love y’all!  Karen

Happy Easter!

 

Hey Friends!

Happy Easter to all of you. We serve a risen Savior! Oh how I am thankful for the resurrection of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus is reason I can sing. He’s the reason I have joy, peace, and strength. And He is alive!!

During this Holy Week another hero made it home. Ben Speer was a friend. It was an honor to sing in the Gaither Homecoming choir in Nashville celebrating his incredible life.

 

We have worked very hard but have finally finished our new album! Can’t wait for y’all to hear these songs!!  ‘HOPE’ will be released in June.

 

We are extremely grateful to all of you who voted for us in the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards! KPNR won Fan Favorite Artist, Mixed Group, Progressive Country Song (CALLING), and I won Songwriter of the Year (my first time and I’m still in shock)!! Also we want to congratulate Absolutely Gospel for 20 years of service to the Southern Gospel Industry.

 

We pray that you will have a wonderful Easter Sunday.

Love y’all!  Karen

I Choose Christ

Hey friends!

This week we got the wonderful news that our radio song, I CHOOSE CHRIST has jumped from #32 to #7. We love this song and the title explains it all. Thanks to our amazing DJ friends for playing our music! Also thanks to all of you for requesting our songs! It really does make a huge difference.

We have been in the studio recording a new album. Hopefully we will finish the final session in April. We are beyond excited about the new songs! Can’t wait for you all to hear them. Every song has a special place in our hearts. As always, we pray that the Lord will use this album to encourage many people.

I can’t describe how thrilled we are about going to Israel in July!! It is an all inclusive trip. July 17-26 will be a life changing experience for all of us. We want y’all to go with us on this amazing journey. We are partnering with our dear friends, The Isaacs, who have been 12 times! We will be singing on the sites which will make our songs literally come to life! Every day has been planned out but one of the things I am looking forward to most is…KPNR will sing 4 DAYS LATE at Lazarus’ tomb! The deadlines are getting close so be sure to sign up today with KPNR as your tour host!

We would love to see all of you! Be sure to check our schedule and come to see us.

Love & Prayers!
Karen

Incredible!

Hello Dear Friends!

It has been an incredible three weeks! We had the privilege of performing on two cruises back to back. Each cruise was very unique and special. The weather was absolutely perfect! The Singing At Sea cruise was sold out this year. Twenty-five plus Southern Gospel ARTISTS and five PREACHERS made the cruise feel like “Revival on Water”!! I was amazed at the young families that attended this year. Templeton Tours offers the discounted rate of children under 16 FREE except for tips and taxes! This way the families can go at an affordable rate. Also the bars and casinos are always closed, so parents can feel free to walk anywhere on the ship. I know I say this every year but.. this was the best Singing At Sea ever! Next year Templeton Tours is going to Key West, Fl. on one day of their destinations! I am very excited about it because we love Key West.
The second week, we boarded the OASIS Of The SEAS. It is the third largest ship on the water and I have never seen anything like it! Zip lining, rock climbing, multiple pools, ice skating, basketball courts, and many other amazing fun things. Sixteen floors made this ship feel like a floating city! However, my favorite was the Central Park on the eighth floor. There were trees, bright colored flowers and plants, park benches, and restaurants with outdoor table settings to enjoy the beautiful ‘live’ music from an amazing violinist and pianist. Scott Godsey and The Music Show Cruise hosted 300 people on this amazing ship. The concerts were very intimate and heartfelt. We visited Haiti where I zip lined for the first time with my dear longtime friend, Kelly Nelon, over the largest water zip line! It was so much fun! The next day we went to Puerto Rico where we took a bus tour with some of our closest friends. The last destination was St. Martin. Susan, Rickey, and I rented a Jeep and drove around part of the island. Matthew, Kari, Joseph, Ricky Braddy, and several others rented ATV’s. It was definitely a day to remember! This trip will forever be one of the greatest weeks of 2017.
Both cruises are already booking for 2018 and KPNR will be one of the artist tour hosts. We would love for you all to go with us next year and sign up with us, KPNR, as your host! Email us and let us know that you going.
Many of you have asked about the Abraham Productions Cruise 2018. It is official. We will be cruising to the Bahamas January 27-February 1. Most of you know that I am on the Board of Directors for Abraham Productions. We tried very hard to choose a cruise that would have be a reasonable price and also have fewer days on the water. For some people, the week long cruises are more difficult to plan.   I am especially thrilled about the Friday, January 26 in Jacksonville, Fl.. We will be celebrating early! API is sponsoring a Pre-Cruise Celebration Concert along with Dr. Herb Reavis speaking! How exciting! You have to be there with us! Go ahead and put down your deposit today! This will secure you a cabin. KPNR is honored to be your tour host! (This really helps us tremendously. Thank you!)
The Israel Trip July 17-26 is still booking and we would love for y’all to go with us! We have already booked our plane tickets. It is going to be one of the most important trips we will ever take. It is a trip of a lifetime. I feel like this is an investment into our personal and spiritual walk with the Lord. To actually be in the very places where He grew up and the places where He ministered is beyond anything I can ever imagine. Honestly, all of us are beyond ourselves with excitement! Please consider going with us. Again, email us and let us know that you are going. Together we will have a wonderful experience in the Lord!! PTL
While we were cruising, we got the good news that our current radio single, “I CHOOSE CHRIST” debuted at #32!! Thank the Lord for the wonderful DJ’s for playing it. Thanks to all of you for calling your local radio stations and requesting it. This will be the last single from the PRAY NOW album and this song is a great way to end this season since we are currently working on our next album releasing in June.
Life is very busy and so much is happening, but through it all, we are blessed! Thanks for your continued prayers and support. Be sure to check our schedule. We would love to see y’all! You are precious to us!
Love and blessings to y’all!
Karen
