Arden, NC (June 23, 2020)
Last spring, legacy Southern Gospel group The McKameys has announced it is no longer going to be touring full time, and released The Crown, an album that continued to bring its message of faithfulness and the power of the Gospel to the world. In the fall, the National Quartet Convention paused to honor the group that’s released 54 albums over the course of their career and has the most #1 hits in Southern Gospel history.
Thousands of fans and industry peers filled the LeConte Centre in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee to celebrate The McKameys’ more than 60 years of singing. Now, fans of the group can relive that special afternoon with LIVE Like No Other, a CD and DVD featuring live music as well as behind the scenes interviews with The McKameys, to be released July 17. LIVE Like No Other is now available for pre-order, save and add.
“We are excited about the release of LIVE Like No Other, which was recorded at The National Quartet Convention in September of 2019 during our Farewell Tour,” say The McKameys. “What a great day, being with so many great friends, praising the Lord in song, and feeling the spirit in a special way! We can’t wait for everyone to experience the excitement and emotions that were present that day.”
Throughout the one-and-a-half-hour concert, The McKameys performed many of their #1 hits, like “God On The Mountain,” “Roll That Burden On Me,” “Unspoken Request” and “Do You Know How It Feels,” and crowd favorites like “Trophy Of Grace,” “There Is Jesus” and “For The Record” in a joyful celebration of a career many don’t get to enjoy.
The album release also marks the first time The McKameys’ rendition of “God On The Mountain”—which was #1 on the Singing News Magazine charts for five months in 1988-89 and became their most requested song of all time—will be released on streaming services.
The DVD includes videos of The McKameys sharing personal stories from their careers and a special moment when Horizon Records and the National Quartet Convention honored the group for its dedication to spreading God’s word over the years.
With both parts of LIVE Like No Other, fans of The McKameys will always be able to enjoy the group’s heartfelt performance and message, though they’re no longer touring.
