The Dartts: DARTTMUSIC HUB
Dartt News! Update From Tracy 6/11/15
Well, here we are coming to the end of our time on this tour in Northern California. After our final California date this coming Monday night in Adin, we will have performed nearly 40 concerts here in our former home state. Recently, we flew home to Tennessee for a little break, which included attending our grandson, Rain Forrest Dartt’s college graduation in Indiana. We also flew home in April for our grandson, Taylor Dartt’s wedding. It was wonderful!! Taylor is our first grandchild to be married, and God has blessed him with a lovely and Godly wife...
We are asking prayer for TWO GREAT NEEDS!;
1. FINANCES FOR A NEW RECORDING PROJECT: We have several new songs for a new recording. Now we need the financial provision
to cover the costs of recording, travel, & to press the first order of CD’s. The estimated provisions need to cover these costs is $18,000 - $20,000.
2. FINANCES FOR A NEWER BUS: Our current one is now 21 years old and has well over 800,000 miles on it - we've driven it for 10 & 1/2 years & in the last few years we have seen an increase in the frequency of repairs - costing tens of thousands of dollars. There are also some things we need in a newer bus that would be better for Tracy's health needs. Recently, we had the first official donation to our New Bus Fund when a dear sister at one of our concerts designated $300 to the fund....
In a victorious return to the recording studio after a bit of a dry spell, The Dartts have re-awakened to release their "Get Up And Get Your Shoes On" album - a sparkling collection of brand new, freshly written songs. With more than 40 years of amazing song-writing behind him, Tracy Dartt has done it again as he, along with his wife, Sharon Dartt, son, Stone Dartt, and fellow group member, BJ Speer have joined together to bring a wonderful new collage of spiritually impacting messages to the world of Gospel Music. From the witty ramblings of the opening track, "You Gotta Serve The Lord," to the happy challenge of the title song, "Get Up And Get Your Shoes On," to the prayerful strains of the closing number, "The Lord Bless Thee," this album is sure to keep you engaged and entertained. You'll find comfort in the words of "I Am With You Always" and reminisce as you enjoy the picturesque storyline of "The Little Grey House With The Clothesline". You might find your toe tapping on "Dusty Road," which marks the first time The Dartts have recorded a BJ Speer composition, and it's the inspiration for the title of BJ's latest biographical book, "Dusty Road," which shares the challenges of losing his Dad to Alzheimer's disease. Let your spirit soar to the worshipful tunes, "Lord Bid Me Come To Thee" and "The Name Above Every Name." Three staples of any new project by The Dartts are here - A cowboy song, "Before Sundown," A humorous song, "Sent And Went" (kinda sounds like Dr. Seuss meets Gilbert and Sullivan), and a southern gospel song, "Row Your Boat." There's no denying the strong convicting impact of thoughtful tunes, "With Him" and "The Rest Of Your Life." Topped off by a refreshing variety of musical styles, "Get Up And Get Your Shoes On" is sure to become a new favorite album for many.
