Arden, North Carolina (November 30, 2018) -Â For decades, the Down East Boys have spread Godâ€™s message through music, making a difference in peopleâ€™s lives with their voices. This month, their far-reaching impact is being recognized with their single â€œBeat Up Bibleâ€ reaching the #1 spot on the Singing News chart.
â€œItâ€™s amazing with this song â€” as much as we poured into albums over the years â€” this song was so simple and so easy,â€ says lead singer Ricky Carden. â€œIt was all about the message.â€
The song, which paints the picture of a â€œworn out and torn upâ€ book used by generations to teach the value of prayer, is the groupâ€™s first #1. It has quickly made an impact on people, with several bringing their family Bibles to Down East Boys performances and sharing what the song has meant to them.
â€œThat music is impacting peopleâ€™s lives, and thatâ€™s why we do what we do,â€ says Carden. â€œWe do this every week because we love this music and it makes a difference.â€
Crossroads congratulated the group for their success this week with a luncheon and commemorative plaques. Crossroads would also like to thank Richard Hyssong for his promotion assistance.Â â€œBeat Up Bibleâ€ is featured on the Down East Boysâ€™ latest album, One Day In The Past. Listen to it HERE.
