So What Did I Miss?

A lot, apparently. I go on a cruise for a few days, then take a few to catch up on everything else and look what happens.
- Stephen Hill passed away. Hill had been a mainstay of the Gaither crew for quite a while now, and will be sorely missed. Condolences to his family and friends. Hill now knows in full the joys of the Savior and Heaven he sang so faithfully about. His memorial service was yesterday.
- Dustin Doyle was announced as the new lead singer for Beyond The Ashes. Dustin’s brother Darren sang with Perfect Heart briefly before they disbanded, and he is actually a friend of my Sunday School teacher. I’m glad to see him getting a shot with a full time group the caliber of Beyond The Ashes.
- Dianne Wilkinson is releasing an autobiography (of sorts) called Dianne Wilkinson: The Life And Times Of A Gospel Songwriter. Fellow blogger Daniel Mount worked on the book with Wilkinson, and the book came out of a series of interviews that Mount did with Wilkinson. It will be available in hard copy through Amazon, and digitally for the Amazon Kindle, B&N Nook, Apple iPad and iPhone, and the Kobo e-reader, among other formats.
- Palmetto State signed with Song Garden and are working on a new project due out this fall.
