Randall Franks Wins Award

randalfranksC. Austin Miles classic hymn In the Garden is the latest single from the Share America Foundation’s fundraising CD An Appalachian Musical Revival: Live at the Ringgold Depot.

The single features a vocal and musical performance by award-winning fiddler Randall Franks, Officer Randy Goode from TV’s In the Heat of the Night, with Crossroads Entertainment artist Voices Won – Jaron, Shantell and Staclynn Faulknor performing vocal harmonies.

In the Garden is by far the most requested standard that I sing. This performance featuring four voices, a guitar and a fiddle from the stage of the historic Ringgold Depot, was unplanned and unrehearsed. It just happened as we gathered at the end of the concert. The unpolished recording has all the ambiance that goes along with a live performance. The response from all those that hear our hearts sharing the Lord’s promise in harmony has been inspiring to me. Voices Won are truly one of the most outstanding vocal groups on the road today – Randall Franks.

Franks is a top-20-selling Christian soloist who toured with gospel and bluegrass talents including Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys, the Jim and Jesse Show, the Lewis Family, Jeff and Sheri Easter, and the Marksmen Quartet.
