KINGDOM HEIRS - Something Good Volume Two
The Kingdom Heirs are sharing some of their favorite Gospel songs on “Something Good Volume Two,” a collection of newly-recorded music from one of Southern Gospel’s top quartets. It’s a joyful reminder of all the Lord has done with songs retelling classic Bible stories and others about our own experiences with Christ in everyday life.
Arthur Rice, The Kingdom Heirs' lead singer, says, “We recorded Volume One when Loren came with us as something quick, really, with some of our favorite old and new songs. But everyone loved it so much it’s become one of our most popular albums, so we decided to do Volume Two.”
The album starts with “What A Beautiful Day,” a song about longing for the day Christ returns, that stays true to the well-known Happy Goodman Family version. “This standard is so classic that everyone knows what it is by the first few bars of the intro, and it shows off the incredible range of tenor Jerry Martin,” says Rice. “He gets overshadowed so often that I’m not sure people understand what an incredible tenor he really is.”
On “The Lovely Name Of Jesus,” Rice takes the lead with other group members Martin, Loren Harris, and Jeff Chapman joining him on the chorus. Rice says this song, written by Squire Parsons and originally recorded by The Kingsmen, has energy and sincerity with a message that assures us that simply the mention of Jesus can calm tumultuous situations. This is also the first single to radio from this recording.
The album ends on a joyful high note with “Joshua Fit The Battle of Jericho,” a lively, upbeat instrumental with the award-winning Kingdom Heirs band consisting of Andy Stringfield on piano, Dennis Murphy on drums and Kreis French on bass joined by a big band brass section.
“This was such a fun album,” says Rice. “It’s a broad selection of tunes that hopefully everyone will enjoy.” Join the Kingdom Heirs for another volume of some of their best music on the newly-recorded “Something Good Volume Two.”
