2015 is off to a great start! We have so much to tell you!
Roger has just released a long-awaited NEW piano CD! “Timeless Piano Classics” features Roger solo at the piano, playing favorite hymns and songs that have been special to him through the years. You’ll even get to hear his version of the University of Tennessee Alma Mater! It’s a beautiful collection and you can order it now at thetalleys.com.
We were recently the featured guests on the January 8 episode of RFD-TV’s “The Music City Show,” hosted by our buddy Tim Lovelace. We performed three songs and Tim not only interviewed us, but showed some embarrassing old photos as well! The show will likely re-air at a later date, so we’ll keep you posted.
The “Good News! He’s Alive!” Tour, featuring the Talleys and Tribute Quartet, kicked off in Milton, West Virginia, and is headed to Florida soon! Our first show was so much fun. Just a few of the highlights: Dueling Pianos with Roger and Josh Singletary, a duet by myself and Riley Clark, and Debra showing Anthony Davis how bass singing is done. Watch thetalleys.com/tour for future tour dates, and if we’re within driving distance, you will not want to miss it!
As you read this, we are boarding the beautiful Liberty of the Seas for an unforgettable gospel music cruise to Cozumel and Belize. This cruise has sold out faster than any we’ve ever done, and we’re already planning for next year! Mark your calendars for January 30-February 4, 2016. We’ll be sailing on Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas to Costa Maya and Belize, along with the Hoppers, Ivan Parker, Karen Peck and New River, the Whisnants and Tribute! You can find registration info at thetalleys.com or abrahamproductions.net.
We have just released a new concept video for “Hidden Heroes.” Produced and directed by Jared Meyers, this video makes the song’s story come to life like never before. Watch it at the Talleys’ official YouTube channel here: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yTTkHNwNDXY
We recently sang in Virginia to a wonderful crowd on a Sunday night. When the concert was over, a teenage girl walked up to me and handed me a note. I didn’t read it right away, but we stood and chatted for a moment and she then walked away. I unfolded the note to read the following:
Until tonight, suicide was an option I was seriously considering. This show tonight changed my whole outlook, and now I know God will help me get through. Just wanted to say thank you.
God’s still doing big things. We’re grateful He allows us a front row seat.
See you on the road soon!
