Down East Boys will be releasing their brand new album One Day in the Past on August 24. With songs about praising the Lord and preaching the good news, the Down East Boys' One Day In The Past from Sonlite Records reminds followers of Christ to get back to basics - remember what God has done and can do for you, give Him glory, and tell others His story.
The message is built on tradition, a theme carried through the album. The first single, "Beat Up Bible," which is already hitting the national charts, is a rich, heartfelt rendition of the popular Little Big Town song that paints the picture of a "worn out and torn up" book used by generations to teach the value of prayer and unwavering trust in God. The album closes with "Beautiful Valley," a new recording of the Down East Boys' chart topping song from 1989 that has all the elements of a great gospel song: a classic country sound and notes of faith and perseverance.
About Down East Boys
For more than 30 years, the Down East Boys quartet has traveled from coast to coast, Canada and Mexico. Starting in eastern North Carolina the group chose the name from that region called Down East, but quickly expanded its ministry and has now recorded more than 20 projects and has had more than 40 songs reach the top of the Singing News charts. The Down East Boys features lead singer Ricky Carden, baritone singer Daryl Paschal, bass singer Rick Walls and tenor singer Doug Pittman, who each bring a richness to the group's music and have been noted by industry leaders and singers as some of the best.
The Down East Boys have been afforded many great accolades to their credit. From performing with many evangelists through the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, singing at Southern Baptist State Conventions and Evangelism conferences all over the country, to all the awards and nominations and the hit songs, nothing changes the goal of this group and that is to share the gospel of Jesus unto all the world.
