For Immediate Release:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 20, 2016) — Legendary gospel music family The Goodmans
are sharing a rare night of their biggest hits with fans on Live In Texas, An
Unforgettable Evening available at retail now via New Haven Records.
The new project, the 12th installment in the popular Gospel Legacy Series,
features a performance recorded straight to tape during the group’s 1974
concert in Arlington, Texas. The album serves as a companion piece to 2007’s
bestselling DVD, which captured live footage of the same event.

The group’s renowned showmanship is palpable throughout the recording’s
18 tracks, which highlight The Goodmans’ signature harmonies and unmatched
enthusiasm. With 7 million career units sold, The Goodmans are one of
Southern Gospel’s bestselling groups, and Live In Texas features many of
their most revered hits, including “What Heaven Means To Me,” “Lighthouse,”
“He’s Coming Again” and “The Eastern Gate,” among others. In between
performances, members Howard, Rusty and Sam share stories behind select songs.

“The Goodmans are one of Southern Gospel’s most endearing families, and their
Live In Texas DVD project continues to be one of the most special additions
to their discography. We are thrilled to now be able to offer this
never-before-released version of the audio recording from that same
incredible night,” shares New Haven Records president Ken Harding.
“We hope this CD will be a treasured keepsake for fans for years to come.”
The album’s first single, “Looking For A City,” is currently vying for
adds at Southern Gospel radio and features the beautiful vocals of
Vestal Goodman and Johnny Cook. The song and the rest of the set list
from Live In Texas are already resonating with radio programmers
across the country.

“Nothing can match the excitement of a Happy Goodman concert.
In this newly released CD, those wonderful songs come to life in a
new, incredible way,” says radio promoter Jan Binkley Puryear.
“The sound of Vestal and The Goodmans belting out those legendary
hits will have you waving your handkerchief on the very first note.”
