Nashville, TN (September 21, 2020)
The Gaither Music Group release, Brotherly Love, featuring Jimmy Fortune, Bradley Walker, Mike Rogers and Ben Isaacs, continues to gain momentum as the CD debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Christian/Gospel Albums Chart and No. 16 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart. Physical copies of the DVD and CD, released digitally May 29, were released on Sept. 4, while the TV special, hosted by Rory Feek, premiered on RFD-TV and Heartland. The TV special will premiere on Circle on Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 9 p.m. ET and midnight, re-airing on Sunday, Oct. 25, at 2:30 p.m. ET.
Cowboys & Indians described the quartet as a “country, bluegrass, gospel dream team (Dana Joseph),” while Today’s Christian Entertainment noted, “from start to finish, Fortune/Walker/ Rogers/Isaacs showcase their harmonies on Brotherly Love with every track (Kelly Meade).” “The songs chosen for the record reflect their crossover appeal to bluegrass, country, and Gospel fans, presented in an acoustic setting with assistance from top Nashville super pickers (John Lawless),” added Bluegrass Today.
Each member of Fortune/Walker/Rogers/Isaacs brings their own wealth of experience to Brotherly Love, creating an intriguing combination of styles and influences. Brotherly Love is a diverse collection that spotlights some of the best-loved gems on America’s musical landscape. Walker takes lead on the mournful Hank Williams Sr. classic “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” Fortune’s pristine tenor shines on the Vince Gill hit “Go Rest High on That Mountain.” Rogers delivers a spirited take on the O Brother, Where Art Thou hit “Man of Constant Sorrow”; and Isaacs’ warm voice revives the Don Williams’ hit “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good.”
“I was blessed to be part of this TV taping a few months ago here at our farm with my friends Bradley Walker, Ben Isaacs, Jimmy Fortune and Mike Rogers,” stated country singer/songwriter and best-selling author Rory Feek. “On their own, each is an incredible artist and singer. But together, in that room and on this video, they are truly magic.”
