NEW HAVEN RECORDS RELEASES COUNTRY’S GREATEST GOSPEL SONGS OF THE CENTURY

Two Volume Set Features Seven Decades of Country Gospel Performances

Country's Greatest Gospel Songs of the Century: Gold Edition

New Haven Records, in partnership with The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum®, recently released two landmark anthologies featuring seven decades of legendary artists and heart-warming Country Gospel performances. The individually packaged CDs, Country’s Greatest Gospel Songs of the Century: Gold Edition and Country’s Greatest Gospel Songs of the Century: Platinum Edition, represent many of the genre’s most popular inspirational performances, chosen by Country Music radio, retail and music history professionals.

In addition to digitally re-mastered tracks of the original performances, the CDs include extensive liner notes and photos from Country Music Hall of Fame historians chronicling the history of Country Music and detailing each song and artist.

“We are honored to be a partner in preserving and celebrating these performances for today’s — and tomorrow’s — fans,” says Ken Harding, president of New Haven Records.

New Haven Records previously partnered with the Hall of Fame on three projects — Country’s 20 Classic Gospel Songs of the Century, Country’s 20 Classic Songs of the Century, and Sunday in the Country — which have sold more than 200,000 units collectively, Harding says, noting that Country’s 20 Classic Gospel Songs of the Century was the No. 1 selling CD sold during 2011 at the Hall of Fame’s Nashville location.

A number of new projects are currently in development between New Haven and the Hall of Fame.

Each edition of Country’s Greatest Gospel Songs of the Century sells for $8.99, with a portion of the royalties benefiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum®.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
