|Harrigills releasing new CD|
Glen and Penny Harrigill began playing music together when they were dating.
"That was somewhere back in the 1900s," Glen joked.
Much later, when son Paul and daughter Amber came along, the Harrigills, who will be married 25 years next February, continued singing and the children caught the fever.
"We never pushed them into it, we just told them there was a room full of instruments if they were interested," Glen said.
The family released its first CD called "Headin' Home" in 2002.
On Sunday, September 13, the Harrigills are holding a CD release party at 2 p.m. at Riverside Baptist Church on Jefferson Street in Vidalia to unveil their fourth Bluegrass Gospel CD, entitled, "Closer."
"It's exciting because the kids have taken more of a lead on this one," Glen said. "When we released our first CD Penny and I were the leaders. Now we're just glad the kids let us play along."
The title track is an original song written by Amber Nugent and Paul Harrigill.
"Amber and Paul work off of each other a lot," Glen said. "Sometimes writing a new song is like picking up a pen and piece of paper. The tune comes to you and you write it out. Then sometimes you can write a few lines and the tune will come to you a year or two later."
Glen said "Closer" is about the fact that each breath you takes brings you closer to that last breath.
"It's about making sure you know Jesus Christ before you move on," he said.
The Harrigills will be performing all 12 songs at the CD release party and telling the story behind each song.
"That was Paul's idea," Glen said. "And this project is exciting because it's the first one with Trey."
Trey Nugent is Amber's husband and the two are expecting a baby on March 24, 2010.
"We're very excited," Glen said. "We are kind of scaling back the rest of this year. But, with the Lord's blessings, we're expecting 2010 to be a super year.
There are five original songs on the CD, which sells for $15.
The Harrigills third CD, "Godspeed," will also be on sale for $15, while their first two CDs, "Headin' Home," and "Cryin' Holy" will sell for $10.
There will also be a special all four for $40.s
A reception will follow the one-hour concert with cake and punch being served.
