Rocklands Entertainment Celebrates 40 Years of Entertainment Management And Concert Promotion In Canada and 25 Years In The United States

Rocklands Entertainment Celebrates 40 Years of Entertainment Management And Concert Promotion In Canada and 25 Years In The United States

Prominent entertainment promoters, Rocklands Entertainment celebrates 40 successful years of entertainment management and concert promotion in Canada and 25 years in the U.S.A. Featuring concert management and promotion of legendary acts such as Red Green, Tommy Hunter, Charley Pride, Frank Mills (Mr. Music Box dancer”, Carroll Baker, Kitty Wells, Johnny and Bobby Wright, Mickey Gilley, Roger Whittaker, the late ‘Stompin’’ Tom Connors, Rita MacNeil, George Jones, Tammy Wynette and many more. Rocklands Entertainment ranks with the best on the top 100 promoters in the world chart as reported by Pollstar Magazine in Los Angeles, California. Rocklands Entertainment has delivered one-of-a-kind shows, placing unforgettable memories in the hearts of all audiences along with forming lasting connections with music industry legends.

The story begins in August 1980 when a 17-year-old Peterborough Ontario, Canada native became the youngest licensed entertainment booking agent ever in North America.

“It all started by working in Peterborough back when I was an assistant to local Peterborough disc jockey, “Sunshine” Sean Eyre. I started working with Sean when I was 15. One thing led to another and it soon became apparent that working with live entertainment was my calling. The odds at 17 were all stacked against me getting a booking license, but the right people pulled all the right strings and made it happen,” shares Brian Edwards, Owner and Founder of Rocklands Entertainment.

The rest is history.

Over 5,000 shows and 100+ different entertainers later, Rocklands continues to arrange show stopping performances all over North America. Rocklands has made their mark around the world and has produced shows all over North America, Australia and Scotland.  A recent Red Green tour across the United states placed Rocklands in the top 100 tours of the week, three weeks in a row.  “Not bad for a couple of Canadian lads from small town Ontario.”

A book is in the process of being released later this year, sharing 40 years of memories with Rockland Entertainment and friends. Ed Arnold, a writer from Peterborough Ontario and Brian Edwards have been in the process of writing for almost a year and are excited to share the stellar charisma and defining voice that Rocklands Entertainment has provided so many over the years.

Like all other entertainment promoters, venues and artists around the world, Rocklands Entertainment promotional events have been halted due to COVID-19. Proving a monumental force to be reckoned with, Rocklands holds an optimistic attitude and considers alternatives instead of accepting defeat. They are adapting and considering putting on smaller shows that follow social distancing standards very soon. Rocklands Entertainment assures that they will be ready to hit the road and put on shows the second it is safe to do so! Stay tuned for future tour announcements via the Rocklands Entertainment website.

What respected music industry figures and friends are saying about Rocklands Entertainment and Brian Edwards:

“Congratulations to Brian and all the Rocklands crew for 40 great years. Brian and I have been friends for most of those years and I have always enjoyed working with the Rocklands folks.”Charley Pride (Country Music Pioneer and Hall of Fame Member)

“Our association goes back for over 40 years.  We have done over 500 shows together and it was all on a handshake. Rocklands, you are the reason for my success… Thank you!” – Tommy Hunter (Canada’s Country Gentleman)

“The kindest, most considerate, most decent and most relentlessly honest person to ever work in the field of entertainment.”Red Green (Comedian)

“Brian Edwards ably assisted by John Lester and staff operate a very tidy no BS business where getting things done is a way of life. Brian’s motto is simple, and I quote ” Get off your arse and let ‘er rip ” reaffirming his no nonsense approach to making every step of the way right and taking care of things when not right. We have had a wonderful and profitable relationship for most of Rocklands 40 years.”Frank Mills (“Mr. Music Box Dancer”)

“This I can say without hesitation… I have “not” met many Promoters/Agents/ Managers, who have maintained such long-lasting relationships with their clients as Brian Edwards has managed to do.  I have total respect for Brian Edwards and his work ethic. As a person, I feel so fortunate to call him my friend. Congratulations Brian Edwards, and to everyone at Rocklands Entertainment. I am looking forward to working with you in the future and many more years of our friendship. Your friend always!”Carroll Baker CM (Canada’s first lady of country Music)

“As a young artist, I was able to cut my teeth and learn so many important lessons in country music thanks to the opportunities Brian Edwards and Rocklands Entertainment provided me. Some of my greatest memories were sharing the stage as an opening act for the greatest legends in our genre, and I will be forever grateful for those moments. As I matured as an entertainer, started winning awards, and enjoyed having hits of my own, I looked back fondly on the experiences I had with Brian, and still take a moment today to acknowledge how lucky I was to learn from the icons — Brian being one of them. You do not thrive for 40 years in this extremely difficult business unless you are the best of the best. Rocklands Entertainment, and my friend, Brian Edwards are the best. Congratulations on this incredible milestone, and I look forward to celebrating many more!”- Brett Kissel (JUNO & CCMA Award Winner • Canada’s Male Artist & Entertainer of the Year)

“I had the pleasure of working with Brain Edwards in Canada. The tour was successful for us yours truly and I hope it was successful for him. I would like to congratulate Brian and his beautiful wife for their success and to many more years with Rocklands Entertainment.” – Mickey Gilley (Country Music Artist)

“Brian Edwards enlisted me to create, direct, and perform in the Live Lawrence Welk Show for a decade of tours throughout the U.S. and Canada.  I have NEVER felt more supported or valued as an artist than during those years with Rocklands Entertainment. No one worked harder than Brian to “take care of business” and still show us a great time.  We were treated like family every step of the way and gratefully, that relationship continues to this day. Happy Anniversary, Brian & Rocklands!  You rock!”- Mary Lou Metzger (The “Live” Lawrence Welk show)

– Mickey Guyton (Country music artist)

“I was immediately grabbed by Reyna’s voice and writing in the demos I heard. After meeting her it doesn’t take long to realize she’s a magnetic force with a true vision.”
– Jeffrey Hasson (Paradigm Talent Agency)

“A beautiful soul, fireball and power all wrapped up in one girl. One of the most naturally gifted artists I’ve worked with. There’s no doubt this girl was born to sing.”
– Adam Box (Brothers Osborne drummer)

“The minute Reyna walked into my studio and we started creating together, it reminded me so much of when I started producing Kane Brown, and I just knew she was gonna be a force to be reckoned with! A real Superstar!!”
– Noah Henson (Brantley Gilbert’s guitarist, produced and helped develop Kane Brown)

– Rising Country singer/ songwriter Reyna Roberts is blazing a trail toward success with the release of her latest single, Stompin’ Grounds.” This hard-hitting Alabama anthem is lively and energetic. The song invites fans to join Roberts as she gets wild and kicks up dust. She invites us to take a look at her southern roots. Reyna’s rare voice and universal lyrics remind us that we all have “Stompin’ Grounds,” and her song allows fans to remember their origins too. “Stompin’ Grounds” dares listeners to get rowdy, raise a little hell, and still find a way to church on Sunday. Roberts’ single propels her forward on a relentless rise to stardom. An exclusive lyric video premiered on Rolling Stone Country. The single is now available to download and stream on all digital platforms.

“Roberts is a black woman singing bangers like “Stompin’ Grounds” that could fit right in on country radio. Carrie Underwood is already a fan.” Marissa R. Moss, Rolling Stone Country

When asked about the story behind the song, Roberts shared, “I remember when me and Noah Henson (my producer and co-writer), first started writing “Stompin’ Grounds.” He and his family (I think of them as my family, too) had just moved into their new house. We were sitting on the floor because his studio wasn’t set up yet. There was nothing in the room – just me, him, and his acoustic guitar. Noah was playing a riff, and I immediately loved it. So, we began to write. We laugh about it now because we didn’t even have chairs. So, we recorded a voice memo of the session, and he put parts of the voice memo in the song. We took my influences of Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, Brantley Gilbert, and Brothers Osborne, and put it in a song.”

Roberts recently performed with the Song Suffragettes at The Listening Room Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee. She performed some of her original material, and has multiple projects that fans all over the world can’t wait to hear and will not want to miss.

“Stompin’ Grounds’ captures everything that represents me,” shares Roberts. “I think the song resonates with anyone who’s ever wanted to kick down doors. I’m incredibly grateful to have a team that believes in me, the song, and my vision. I can’t wait for everyone to hear what Reyna Roberts sounds like.”

The sky’s the limit for country flame Reyna Roberts… “and don’t you forget it!”

BJ Thomas’ “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” Celebrates 50 Years

BJ THOMAS’ “RAINDROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HEAD” CELEBRATES 50 YEARS

No umbrella needed! It is all sunshine for American pop music icon BJ Thomas as he celebrates a golden milestone for his Oscar winning classic “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head.” “It’s hard to believe it’s been fifty years since “Raindrops” went #1,” Thomas reflects. “I’ve sold over 70 million records, but I have to say I am most appreciative of this song. It was a career changer for me when it came along. More than that, it was a life changer—a true blessing.”

The whimsical masterpiece was written by renowned dream team Burt Bacharach and Hal David for the December 1969 movie release “Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid” starring Robert Redford and Paul Newman. While studio execs thought “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head” was too unconventional and contemporary for what they knew would be a blockbuster western, they were proven wrong at the movie premiere when the audience exploded with delight at the famous scene featuring the song prominently played to the visual of happy-go-lucky Paul Newman riding a bicycle while he tried to impress his movie love Katherine Ross.

Propelled by the movie’s momentum, “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head” crossed into a new decade on January 3, 1970 as the first #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 where it remained for the next four weeks. It also took top spots internationally and for seven weeks sat in the pinnacle position on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

“It was the craziest thing,” said Thomas. “By mid-March that year, ‘Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head’ sold over two million copies. There was a time we were selling 200,000 to 300,000 copies a day. It happened so fast. And then I was asked to perform on the Academy Awards. It was such a big production that I had a hunch ‘Raindrops’ would win the Oscar for Best Original Song; however, when it did, I still went weak in the knees. What a thrill!”

Fifty years later and both the singer and the song continue to be part of today’s musical fabric. The BJ Thomas ode to care-free attitudes has displayed a five decade resiliency as younger generations embrace the evergreen classic through radio, film and television appearances that include “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” “Gremlins 2,” “Forrest Gump,” “Spider Man 2,” “The Simpsons,” “Arrested Development,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Family Guy” and “Feud: Bette and Joan.”

In 2014, The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences inducted “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” into the 2014 Grammy Hall of Fame. “Over the past fifty years, I have performed this song thousands of times, and I never get tired of singing it,” Thomas confided. “We’re all going to experience a little rain in our lives, but if we remember we’re living a free life, then we really don’t have a thing to worry about. Besides, I have a lifetime of good memories attached to this song. You better believe when I begin touring again in 2021, I will be singing ‘Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head,’ and I’ll be loving it as we begin the next fifty years.”

About BJ Thomas:
Five-time Grammy award winner and Grammy Hall of Fame inductee, BJ Thomas has sold over 70 million albums worldwide with a total of 8 #1 hits and 26 Top 10 singles throughout his 50 years in the music industry. As one of Billboard’s Top 50 Most Played Artists Over The Past 50 Years, BJ Thomas’ hits include “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head,” “Hooked On A Feeling,” “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “I Just Can’t Help Believing,” “(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Whatever Happened To Old Fashioned Love” and “New Looks From An Old Lover.”

When COVID-19 began to close all of America down, T. Graham Brown jumped into action not wanting the music to stop playing, as touring was coming to an immediate halt. By calling a few friends from the 80’s and 90’s era of Country music, T. Graham decided it was time to put together one of the first live social concerts for fans to watch from anywhere, all in an effort to keep the music playing. Out of all of that, Hats Off To The 80s & 90s – The Music Continues was born and included Brown, Wade Hayes, Bryan White, Tim Rushlow, Ronnie McDowell, David Frizzell, Tim Atwood, Lulu Roman, and hosted by Inside Edition’s Megan Alexander. Taking place on March 23, 2020, from the 615 Hideaway studio in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, the grouping of artists performed as acoustic as possible, practiced social distancing, and remained in their vehicles until it was their time to perform. Now, a few months later, all of those efforts were recognized by the Telly Awards with a Bronze win for Social Media Live Event.

“Man, you know we pulled this together in like 4 days and it was a labor of love,” says T. Graham Brown, who served as the Executive Producer for the show. “I called on a few friends who didn’t feel comfortable getting out and I completely understood. I then called some others and they were like ‘sure, as long as we are all gonna be safe about it’. I never expected anyone to really pay much attention to what we were doing, to be completely honest about it. To win an award for doing something from the heart is really a pretty cool thing.”

Founded in 1979, The Telly Awards honor excellence in local, regional and cable television commercials as well as non-broadcast video and television programming. With the recent evolution and rise of digital video (web series, VR, 360 and beyond), the Telly Awards today also reflects and celebrates this exciting new era of the moving image on and offline. The Telly Awards annually receive over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents, showcasing the best work created within television and across video, for all screens.

TRAPT’s Latest Album ‘Shadow Work’ Available Now

TRAPT’s Latest Album Shadow Work Available Now

Stream Shadow Work on ffm.to/shadowwork and Other Digital Services

Famed American rock band, TRAPT released their eighth studio album Shadow Work Friday, July 3rd via The Label Group/INgrooves. The first three singles “Tell Me How You Really Feel,” “Far Enough Away” and “Make It Out Alive,” boast powerful patriotic lyrics and were made available leading up to the highly anticipated album release date. “Make It Out Alive” is dedicated to every American that is doing the best that they can to keep spirits elevated during the pandemic.

“The concept of Shadow Work is trying your best to understand and then accept the darkest parts of yourself,” expresses Chris Taylor Brown. “Doing your best to keep those parts as close to you as you can and align them with the ideal version of you. The dark side holds a lot of power, if one can harness it in this way. We all need to truly know who we are and accept and love all parts of us, the good, bad and the ugly. I did a lot of soul searching at the same time I was writing new songs for ‘Shadow Work.’ These songs are like a diary for the last few years of my life. Musically, these songs flowed from the heart. The music would capture an emotion and I would then do my best to tell the story, those emotions brought out in me, with the lyrics.”

For the past 18 years, Chris Taylor Brown has been the lead vocalist behind hits such as “Headstrong,” “Echo,” “Contagious,” and “Stand Up.” As a strong conservative, Chris Taylor Brown has not backed down during times of uncertainty and remains expressive on his political beliefs. As acclaim for their latest album skyrockets, fans take notice of TRAPT and look forward to future albums.

Fellow Performers Remember Country And Southern Rock Legend Charlie Daniels, Who Died Today At 83

Fellow Performers Remember Country And Southern Rock Legend Charlie Daniels, Who Died Today At 83

Photo by Erick Anderson

Country Music Hall of Fame, Grand Ole Opry member and southern rock legend Charlie Daniels passed away this morning, Monday, July 6th at Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tennessee. Doctors determined the cause of death was a hemorrhagic stroke. Daniels was 83.

Charlie Daniels was a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist known for his contributions to Southern rock and bluegrass in addition to country. From his Dove Award-winning gospel albums to his genre-defining southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. An outspoken patriot, beloved mentor, and a true road warrior, Daniels parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a spotlight supporting the military, underprivileged children, and others in need. The Charlie Daniels Band has long populated radio with memorable hits such as the signature song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”

Over the course of his career, Daniels received numerous accolades, including becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2008, inductions into the Musicians Hall of Fame in 2009 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016. Daniels helped to shine the spotlight on the many causes that are close to his heart. He was a staunch supporter of the military and gave his time and talent to numerous charitable organizations including The Journey Home Project, which he founded in 2014 with his long-time manager, David Corlew, to help veterans of the United States Armed Forces.

Fellow artists mourn the loss of their friend and share fond memories that have left them forever inspired by Charlie Daniels.

“I will truly miss my friend and fellow Country Music Hall Of Fame member, Charlie Daniels. He was one of the most honest and genuinely nice people in the business. I will miss our talks. We shared lots of memories and supported each other. My prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues.”Charley Pride

“All of The Oak Ridge Boys are saddened and devastated by this sudden and immeasurable loss. Charlie was not only a dear friend but a Patriot who loved Jesus and loved the USA. It is all so very hard to process right now…We will miss Charlie, but we know where he is… The Everlasting Arms of HIS and OUR Savior hold him now…Until The Day Charlie…Until the DAY…prayers for Hazel.”Joe Bonsall of The Oak Ridge Boys

“One of the best friends, not only a peer, but a true friend. He was one of the most spiritual men. When we got together for a show in Oklahoma, we performed ‘Will The Circle be Unbroken.’ I never will forget that night.”Sam Moore

“What a loss and a shock – we can hardly put this in words. Charlie was such a beloved part of our community! He was a great friend and a fellow patriot. I will always cherish the countless shows we worked together over the decades and our backstage talks. He leaves an immeasurable mark on country and southern rock music. Charlie was a great leader and philanthropist, incredibly humble and one of the biggest supporters of our armed forces and veterans. I loved standing in the wings when he took the stage – he was powerful and magical – he left other artists in awe and every audience on their feet!  We love you Charlie and will forever cherish our friendship.”Lee and Kim Greenwood

“I am very saddened to hear of Charlie Daniels’ passing. I have known and loved Charlie since our early days when he appeared on one of my television specials and l played his Volunteer Jams. Charlie was a strong man who loved his family, fans and country. The music community and the world have lost an old friend.”Crystal Gayle

“Charlie Daniels has been a friend of mine for the last 40 or 50 years. He is one of the greatest artists in country music and an all around wonderful man. We will miss you Charlie.”B.J. Thomas

“I recall a show I played in West Texas with Charlie, what a great talent and personality he was, and so respected in the music world.  He and his memory are cherished and loved by all.”Janie Fricke 

“It was an honor to know Charlie. He was a Godly, family man and the U.S.A. didn’t have a better friend. He always had an encouraging word and a firm handshake. Sheila and I pray for Miss Hazel, the family, the band and his entire organization. Rest in peace ol’ pal!”T. Graham Brown

“I am absolutely stunned and heart broken over the loss of our legendary friend, the great Charlie Daniels! You could not find a finer or kinder man! His giant talent paled in comparison to the phenomenal human being that he was! He was passionate and honest about what he believed in and unapologetically spoke his truth.There is a reason he was so loved by all who knew him and such an Icon in Country Music!!! He cut a wide path in our hearts! We love you Charlie! My prayers are with his family at this time of deep loss. Rest In Peace Charlie.”Deborah Allen

“My heart goes out to Hazel, Charlie Jr. and their family.  I always loved Charlie, and his music.  He was the real deal and one of the great ones.”Lacy J. Dalton

“I’m hurt. Charlie was one of the nicest guys in country music. He was always there to help anyone and he will be missed by all.” Johnny Lee

“I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Charlie Daniels, a true Country Music Legend. ‘The Devil Went Down To Georgia’ will live on as one of the most quintessential Southern Rock songs in history. My thoughts and prayers are with Charlie and his family. Rest in peace Charlie and God bless you.“Deana Martin

“What a huge loss not only in the music industry, but in the world. Charlie was simply one of the kindest, most loving patriotic friends I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. He loved his friends and country so deeply. I was honored and blessed to perform on his infamous Volunteer Jam. My heart is broken today and I send my prayers of comfort up for his precious family.”Kelly Lang

“It’s hard to imagine country music without Charlie Daniels and the world will never be the same. Thankfully he left a legacy like no other that we can reflect on. You are loved and you will be missed!”Shane Owens

“Charlie Daniels was a music icon, yet every time I played piano for Charlie he made me feel like I was part of the Charlie Daniels’ family.   He loved our country and devoted much of his time to encouraging and performing

for our men and women in uniform.  When my son Torre was in the Army, and he was about to ship out for his first tour in Iraq, Charlie met with Torre before he left, and he prayed with him.  You have no idea what that meant to me.  The devil can stay down in Georgia for all I care, because Charlie Daniels is heaven bound!”  – Tim Atwood

“Rest in Peace to Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels.  He was one of the true icons in country music and will forever be remembered. Charlie Daniels was a True American.  Country Music has lost one of its finest ambassadors today. Prayers to the family of Charlie Daniels.”J.D. Shelburne

“It truly breaks my heart to hear of the passing of Mr. Charlie Daniels. As a fellow NC native, he was included in the soundtrack of nearly every road trip, bonfire night, and any other occasion! He was an extraordinary musician and such a joy to watch onstage – his spirit for music and performing was truly incredible! His family are in my thoughts and prayers during this hard time. He will truly be missed by fans all around!” Paige King Johnson

“When I was a kid at boarding school listening to my roommate’s Charlie Daniels albums, I had never been exposed to country music, and I didn’t know what I was hearing, I just knew that it grabbed me.  So I transported the feel of it to my rudimentary songwriting on the grand piano in the common room of that dorm, and it has stayed with me ever since.  Classic songwriting and musical authenticity can reach across a culture like nothing else.  Thanks to Charlie for waking a powerful spirit, all over the world.”Carrington MacDuffie

“A pioneer that stood for so many great things outside of music, a true patriot. He taught us all what a fiddle truly was while never being afraid to voice his opinion. He’s going to be deeply missed but his legacy will no doubt live on. Prayers and thoughts are with his family, friends and fans.”Vonn Kiss

Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming days.

Fast forward to today, J.D.’s latest album Two Lane Town, is building upon his blossoming career as a modern country singer, songwriter and performer. His debut single and video for “One Less Girl” world premiered on CMT in 2018, and then went on to become a Top 30 Music Row charted song at country radio. CMT again world premiered his second song and video for “She Keeps Me Up Nights” in April of 2019, which peaked at #3 of their 12 Pack countdown series. At the close of 2019, Shelburne joined international superstars like Lewis Capaldi and Billie Eilish on BandsInTown’s year-end fan favorites list — for playing more shows in 2019 than any other artist on their social networking platform!

The Oak Ridge Boys To Perform & Co-Host TBN’s Independence Day Weekend Celebration w/Governor Mike Huckabee featuring Nicole C. Mullen & Lee Greenwood

The Oak Ridge Boys To Perform and Co-Host TBN’s Independence Day Weekend Celebration with Governor Mike Huckabee and featuring Nicole C. Mullen and Lee Greenwood

Special to air July 3 at 8, 9, 10 and 11pm ET, July 4th at 1pm ET / 10am PT and July 5th at 11pm ET / 8pm PT on TBN

 

GRAMMY® winning, Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry members The Oak Ridge Boys are set to host TBN’s July 4th weekend special performing multiple songs, along with guests two time Grammy nominated and GMA Dove award winner Nicole C. Mullen, Grammy award winner Lee Greenwood and joined by co-host Gov. Mike Huckabee. TBN’s Independence Day Weekend Celebration will premiere Saturday, July 3 at 8, 9, 10 and 11pm ET, July 4th at 1pm ET / 10am PT and July 5th at 11pm ET / 8pm PT. In addition, the special will be available to stream on Facebook LIVE on TBN, Gov. Mike Huckabee, The Oak Ridge Boys, Lee Greenwood and Nicole C. Mullen pages. Fans can also look forward to timeless hits performed for all in true social distancing, patriotic style.

“We are looking forward to celebrating our country’s Independence weekend,” says Duane Allen. “The Oak Ridge Boys and Mike Huckabee are co-hosting this special on TBN with very special musical guests!”

“During these times of virus and unrest how cool it will be to gather with The Governor and celebrate America … on July 4th weekend,” says Joe Bonsall of The Oak Ridge Boys.

“This is such a great opportunity to reach out to America on Independence Day,” says Lee Greenwood. “Thank you Governor Huckabee and The Oak Ridge Boys for allowing me to be on this 4th of July special with you.”

“The Fourth of July reminds me that freedom is never free. It will always cost someone, somewhere a great price,” says Nicole C. Mullen. “Another truth that I have realized is; sometimes you must celebrate the freedom of others, while you press towards your own. Most Americans can trace their liberty back to 1776. As an African American, mine was granted in 1865. As believers in Christ, the price was paid 2,000 years ago, for the greatest eternal emancipation of all…for all who receive it! This year, let’s work towards and celebrate liberty and justice for everyone. He whom the Son sets free, is Free indeed! Tune into TBN as we work towards and Celebrate Freedom for All!”

Tune-in for free on TBN or live stream on TBN.org. TBN is also available on iOS, android, AppleTV, amazon fireTV, Roku or download the TBN app on Google Play or the iOS App Store. For more information, visit tbn.org.
