Arden, NC (February 26, 2021)  

Back with¬†‚ÄúThese Are The Days,‚Ä̬†a new single that bears a timely message, the¬†Kingsmen Quartet¬†continues to enrich their listeners‚Äô lives through exciting and meaningful songs that echo the best of the group‚Äôs legendary¬†Southern Gospel¬†songbook even as they write a new page in it.

With¬†Alan Kendall¬†taking the lead,¬†‚ÄúThese Are The Days‚Ä̬†has a message for the moment that encourages faith and strength amidst the most trying of times. ‚ÄúIf there was ever a message that was timely for the Church in 2021,‚Ä̬†he says,¬†‚Äúit is¬†‚ÄėThese Are the Days.‚Äô¬†Dixie Phillips¬†and¬†Matthew Lawson¬†wrote this song, and I immediately fell in love with it. What a message of resilience and hope! It‚Äôs in that driving, country quartet style that I always loved hearing from the¬†Kingsmen¬†growing up. I am both excited and humbled to be a part of it.‚ÄĚ

Joined by¬†Chris Jenkins (tenor),¬†Chris Bryant (baritone), and the distinctive bass voice of¬†Ray Dean Reese, Kendall¬†offers a heartfelt reading that begins with the frank acknowledgement that ‚ÄúThese are the days of trouble and struggle‚ĶOf battles and shadows where evil abounds,‚ÄĚ yet moves swiftly to the joyous news that it will not win. And from opening notes that establish a relaxed yet insistent feeling through key changes that lift their voices higher for choruses that offer classic, powerful quartet singing, the¬†Quartet‚Äôs¬†performance serves to underline the song‚Äôs call to action: ‚ÄúWe have a mission to give what we‚Äôre given away‚ĶThese are the days to make His name known.‚ÄĚ

Classic, powerful, and filled with the gospel spirit that has carried the¬†Kingsmen Quartet¬†far beyond their western North Carolina origins over more than 60 years of performance,¬†‚ÄúThese Are The Days‚Ä̬†offers spirit-lifting hope that, in the song‚Äôs prophetic words, ‚Äúwe‚Äôre nearing forever.‚ÄĚ
