‘Hope For All Nations’ Releases Friday!

Hey friends!

We had an amazing Homecoming! Both nights were very special. Saturday night we had the best altar service in the history of KPNR Homecoming. We are still getting emails from people who were blessed by the service. I’m still not over it! PTL

This Friday, June 23, is the release day of our new album Hope For All Nations. Please pray that the Lord will use it in a powerful way! Scott Godsey of Daywind Music is currently editing our new concept video that we filmed in Roatan, Honduras for the radio single Hope For All Nations. Be watching for it. You can download the album on iTunes or order it from our online store.

Tuesday night Kenna Turner West and I received a BMI award for I Am Blessed. As a writer, this meant a lot to me. I’m very grateful to write with such incredibly talented writers.

It has been a big week! Thanks again for allowing us to share ‘life’ with you! Remember to get the new album! Hope you will love it.

Love and Blessings!

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
