Earlier this year, at age 82, country music legend, Margie Singleton released her chart-topping single and video, “Jesus Is My Pusher.” The video earned an LA Music Video Award, and Margie was inducted into the Atlanta Music Hall of Fame and the Independent Country Music Hall of Fame, proving that age, really is, only a number. In 1967, Margie’s husband, Leon Ashley had a #1 Billboard Country hit, “Laura,” a song they penned together. Margie’s songs have been covered by fellow legends like Charley Pride, Tom Jones, Kenny Rogers, Tammy Wynette, and many others. Now, one month before her 83rd birthday, Margie returns with her “Mighty Mission” from God…a new Country Gospel single and video, “Heaven Or Hell.” The powerful new video, directed and edited by Kenny Harrison, pulls no punches, with its hellish scenes of fire and brimstone. MTS Management Group will handle publicity and promotions of the single and video. http://www.margiesingletonmusic.com.

Everyone loves a good story about second-chances, and that’s exactly what Bill Abernathy’s story is all about. The Kansas City, Missouri resident began writing songs in his early teens. He played all through his school years, but then he stopped…Life took over. Bill went about getting married, building a business career, and raising his children. After his kids graduated from school and started their careers, Bill picked up the guitar again and began trying to rekindle his love of music. “Inspiration for my music comes from a variety of the many parts of my life,” Bill says. “Events and experiences of mine, my family, my friends, and sometimes even people I have never met all, contribute to the creativity of my music. I find it interesting and rewarding to let my imagination wander through the memory and spirit of life events and see where it takes me.” Bill is a pure “lyrics-first” writer…a bit of a storyteller. “I feel the story and lyrics talk to me and tell me what the rest of the song is supposed to sound like,” he says. In 2017, Bill enjoyed both a Top 5 Roots Music Report Traditional Folk Album and a #1 Traditional Folk single. Bill’s latest collection of songs, “Crossing Willow Creek” is available now, with first single, “Cry Wolf” hitting radio airwaves around the globe. “Sometimes life is good to you and gives you a second chance. In my youth I walked away from music for a myriad of personal reasons. Now, I’ve now been given a second chance to pursue this thing we love called music, and I am really enjoying the ride!” https://www.billabernathy.com/crossing-willow-creek
