Maaziah Mountain wants to reach out and say “Thanks” to the good folks at Sewee Church of God. They were a great, receptive audience for our ice-breaking performance after too many years! It was an honor to be a part of their 118th homecoming celebration! Thanks again and blessings to you all!

April Upton ~ The Morning After You

Posted on April 26, 2012

This week “The Morning After You” has aired on the Bill Rainey Show out of Nashville.  We are truly thankful to Mr. Rainey for playing the song.  Just for the record, the song is sung by me, April Upton.  The song was written by my husband, Jim Upton.  A very talented Aaron Taylor is playing the acoustic guitar.  Our daughter, Adriel, is singing most of those mean harmonies.  Ron Clayton played our strings and the song was recorded, mixed and mastered here in Athens, TN by our own Brentley Womac at Jonan Sound Studios.

Please drop Mr. Rainey a request for the song ~ bbrainey at hughes dot net.

Thanks for your support!

The Bill Rainey Show ~

Posted on April 23, 2012

This afternoon found me trying to tune into the Bill Rainey Show on our internet – which has been being rather slow the last four days.  Don’t you know about the time I got the station streaming, I caught the tail end of our song, “The Morning After You.”  I wish I could have heard his introduction of the song, but I missed it.  Anyway, we were excited to know he is indeed playing the song.  Tune in this week if you can – http://www.nbrn.fm/ – Mr. Rainey’s show airs Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 1pm to 3 pm ET or if you are a night owl 11 pm to 1 am ET.  We would appreciate your support with any phone calls or emails to Mr. Rainey requesting the song.  THANKS!!

This is our first week on Jango Airplay.  What an experience just to see folks all over the world listening . . .

The last couple of weeks have been exciting for us! We had our first radio broadcast from our local 101.7 WJSQ/WLAR station here in Athens. Our song, “The Morning After You”, was featured on Bill Hughes show, Rising Stars. It was met with much support and Mr. Hughes reported that the song had more requests than any song they had ever played. We are working on trying to get this same song in the hands of a Nashville radio show soon . . . more on that as it becomes available
