Gospel Group The Hagees' New Album LOVE Sets Career Best for Sales
Gospel music group, The Hagees, released their latest studio album, Love, on June 10th from Difference Media (Capitol Christian Distribution) and the response has been overwhelming! The album debuted at #2 on Nielsen SoundScan's Southern chart; #27 on the Top Current Contemporary Christian chart; and #15 on the all-genre Top New Artist Albums chart for the week ending June 15. This is the highest debut for the Difference Media label since its inception.
Love was produced by multi-Dove Award winner Aaron Crabb (Aaron & Amanda Crabb, Canton Junction) and features 12 original songs as well as new arrangements of timeless favorites. Highlights of Love include the classic, "Precious Lord, Take My Hand," featuring Pastor John Hagee, group patriarch and world-renowned evangelist; the contemporary country "When Love Comes To Town" (feat. Matthew Hagee); "That's What Love Looks Like" (feat. Sandy Parker); the powerful affirmation of "I'll Never Leave You" (feat. Tina Ketterling); and the Dottie Rambo-penned "I've Never Been This Homesick Before," also featuring Pastor John Hagee and showcasing guest vocals from Dove Award-winning quartet Canton Junction.
Sandy Parker of The Hagees' shares about the new album saying, "The song 'That's What Love Looks Like' is a poignant tune about different types of love: the love of a spouse, the love of a mother, the love of a Savior. Ultimately, love is what we feel for each other as a family, our music is a labor of love, and we sing about a Savior who loves us more than we could ask, hope or imagine. Love encapsulates all of that, and I hope the project communicates the same to its listeners. To know that someone may experience the love of God as a result of listening to our music is a humbling thing that feeds my soul."
"It is always the most fun to sing with my family," she adds. "No matter how old we get or how many kids we have, at the end of the day when we sing together, everything else goes away and it's just my dad, my siblings and me singing about Jesus."
