Pamplin Distribution provided its product information during the afternoon and included performances from {{Sierra}}, {{Pete Shambrook}}, {{Scarecrow & Tinmen}} (the tamest anyone has ever seen them), new artist Aurora and the Talley Trio with Jason Crabb.

Information provided included:

The new {{Bibleman}} video "Conquering The Wrath Of Rage" arrives June 6th.
New band Solomon's Wish has more than 200 tour dates scheduled
{{Scarecrow and Tinmen}}'s new Superhero project arrive June 13th
A new Southern Gospel label "Cathedral Records" debuts this fall with two solo albums from long-time {{Cathedrals}} {{George Younce}} and the late Glen Payne, who finished the project two weeks before the diagnosis of cancer which took his life. Todd Payne, the son of the great singer and Cathedral's co-founder, will operate the label.
There will be a change in {{Maranatha}}'s long-running Praise series as they try to make the newest projects more relevant to today's praise/worship audience.
Cush (featuring guitarist Andy Prickett formerly of the {{Prayer Chain}}) will be the first band coming this summer from new label Northern Records. Their project will arrive in July being debuted at the Cornerstone Festival.

One prayer request that I would like to pass on is for one of Glen Payne's grandsons. He has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and the family is asking for the Lord's intervention in this health dilemma.
