Terence “Buttons” Burton, Darryl “Deaken” Brownlee and Todd Burton of Ohio-based Urban contemporary gospel trio Half Mile Home newest radio single “This Far” debuts in the Top 40 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart this week.
“This Far” is available for pre-order now (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/this-far-single/id1264045958) on all digital outlets and is available on September 29th. “This Far” has been one of the most added gospel songs the last two weeks at Gospel radio and is gaining traction weekly.
“This Far” was birthed from a tragic experience group member Todd Burton experienced when his son was fatally shot in the head last year. “Imagine getting a phone call at 5:37am that my oldest son Trey was shot in the head,” states Burton. “I sat beside the bed and started praying and thanking God in advance as I headed to the hospital with my wife. Once I arrived I was told that I couldn’t see my son at the moment by the nurses.” “Our family was told by the doctor that my son has minor brain damage but he’ll be back to normal in 3 months. The tears started falling as I looked at him laying there knowing that if God didn’t spare him this would’ve been my last time to see him alive. BUT GOD said I didn’t bring y’all “This Far” to leave you.”
