The Kingdom Heirs Claim #1 Billboard Spot With Their Latest Album, Everything In Between
October 8, 2019
For the third time in a row, The Kingdom Heirs have had an album debut at #1 on the Nielsen Soundscan Billboard Southern Gospel Album Chart with their latest release, Everything In Between. It also reached #7 on the Contemporary Christian Album Chart, #8 on the Top Christian/Gospel Album Chart and #7 on the Heatseekers Album Chart.
On this album from Sonlite Records, The Kingdom Heirs illustrate why they’ve been noted as one of the top quartets in Southern Gospel music with full quartet tunes, a cappella hymns, and lively instrumentals.
“We are so excited that Everything In Between released as the #1 album! This is our third in a row. Wow!” says Arthur Rice, lead singer. “We put so much work into this new album hoping that people would love it. It’s encouraging to see that they do. Thanks to all the hard work Sonlite Records puts into our releases, and thanks to the fans for continuing to support us through purchases and streams.”
Everything In Between allows The Kingdom Heirs’ broad talents to shine. The album begins with “Just Drink The Water,” a new song from the pens of Lee Black, Gina Boe and Jerry Salley about wanting to be a witness of Christ’s love and spreading His message to as many people as possible. Then in the first radio single, The Kingdom Heirs invite all to “Come To The Well” in an upbeat song about all being welcome at the healing stream.
The title track follows, reminding that no matter what happens in life, Jesus is the first, last, and everything in between, something the Bible will tell us if we turn to it. With an upbeat, country feel, this song features bass vocalist Jeff Chapman on the verses with the group joining on the chorus, and embodies the heart of Southern Gospel traditions.
The Kingdom Heirs’ instrumental work stands out on their rendition of “Sweet By And By,” a classic hymn immediately recognizable with the joyful piano of Andy Stringfield. The talented band recently won its 11th consecutive Band of the Year Award at the Singing News Fan Awards. “Holy, Holy Is What The Angels Sing,” sung a cappella, is an old church hymn that tells of the joy salvation will bring and what it will be like to join the choir of angels.
Everything In Between closes with “High On Zion’s Mountain” a powerful song penned by one of the group’s favorite writers, Dianne Wilkinson. With grand music, it tells of the glorious day when we reach Heaven and the beauty that will be found there.
With their vocal and instrumental abilities, The Kingdom Heirs praise and worship the Lord with each song on Everything In Between. Whether it’s a powerful song with the full group, a moving instrumental or a smooth a cappella tune, this album has something for each listener looking to lift up the Lord and His message.
