Dove Award Winner Billy Sprague Set To Make Multiple Appearances on Cornerstone TV
Multi-Dove Award winning singer/songwriter/worship leader Billy Sprague is set to return for a pair of appearances on Cornerstone Television Network this week. On Tuesday, September 15, 2015, Sprague will perform and share the stories behind his songs on the network’s newly launched program, More Than A Song. The episode airs at 10 a.m. E.T., and again that night at 9 p.m.
On Thursday, September 17, Sprague will appear as a guest on the network’s flagship show, Real Life. In addition to being interviewed by the show’s hosts, Sprague will perform music from his recently released CD, Songs in the Key of Awe. Viewers can watch the live broadcast of Sprague’s appearance at 9 a.m. E.T., followed by rebroadcasting at 1 p.m., 8 p.m. and 1 a.m. E.T. or online at ctvn.org.
A true family affair from start to finish, Songs in the Key of Awe features vocals by Sprague’s daughter Willow, his son Wyatt on djiembe, photography by his wife Kellie and joyful encouragement from their young son Sawyer. Sprague also tapped the formidable talents of guitar virtuosos Phil Keaggy, Dave Beegle and Dan Dugmore along with respected Nashville producer Jim Frazier to create an unforgettable listening experience.
While Songs in the Key of Awe is jam-packed with great songs, Sprague encourages listeners to experience the whole album from start to finish. “From the opening sound of a bird taking flight to the final notes of “Reflection in A,” the songs, pace and spaces are intended to create room to ‘breathe deep of His grace’ as one song lyric puts it,” he muses. “I pray this music helps amplify your awe of the Lord, His creation and redeeming touch on your own grace story.”
One thing so gratifying to Sprague about Songs is the Key of Awe is that the music was created “not primarily as an artist,” as he puts it, “but as a worshipper and worship leader of a local community of faith, doing life together. Another community of faith through Kickstarter, helped make it happen. To me that’s beautiful.”
