Third Word-For-Word Scripture Release In Popular Slugs & Bugs Series
NASHVILLE, Tenn.â€”Acclaimed singer/songwriter and family entertainer Randall Goodgame returns October 20 with Sing the Bible Family Christmas. The sixth installment in his multi-Dove Award-nominated Slugs & Bugs series and the third Sing the Bible recording, the project was produced by Dove Award-winner Ben Shive (Rend Collective, MercyMe).
With jazz stylings reminiscent of the Vince Guaraldi Trioâ€™s iconic A Charlie Brown Christmas, Sing the Bible Family Christmas features 12 selectionsâ€”a range of original musical compositions combined with such classic carols as â€œGo Tell It On The Mountain,â€ â€œSilent Nightâ€ and â€œI Heard The Bells.â€ Highlights of the project include â€œWhen The Fullness Of Time Had Come (Galatians 4:4-7),â€ featuring Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Ellie Holcomb; â€œMaryâ€™s Songâ€ (Luke 1:46-49), a musical setting of The Magnificat performed by Goodgameâ€™s daughter, Livi; and the piano-driven instrumental â€œMary and Jesus.â€
â€œIt is so easy to be distracted around the Christmas season, and I think having Scripture as a constant backdrop can help people stay mindful of Christ and the reality of the Great Miracle,â€ Goodgame shares of the inspiration behind Sing the Bible Family Christmas. â€œThis recording includes a mix of Old Testament and New Testament verses that all point to the Incarnation of Christ. My hope is that the album will be such a musical delightâ€”and such a refreshment to familiesâ€™ spirits through Scriptureâ€”that these songs will be played all year long.â€
A singer and sought-after songwriter, Goodgame has penned selections for Caedmonâ€™s Call, VeggieTales, Jason Gray and Ginny Owens, among others. Along with award-winning singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson, Goodgame created Slugs & Bugs & Lullabies in 2007 to an overwhelming response from parents. Goodgame, who now helms the series, has released A Slugs & Bugs Christmas (2010); 2011â€™s Slugs & Bugs Under Where?; the Dove Award-nominated projects Sing the Bible with Slugs & Bugs (2014) and Sing the Bible with Slugs & Bugs, Volume 2 (2015); and a Slugs & Bugs Vacation Bible School curriculum. His popular Slugs & Bugs LIVE concert for families makes numerous tour stops across the U.S. and the U.K. each year.
