Arden, North Carolina (March 6, 2020) — After years of writing, singing and producing music that propelled them to be one of the most recognized acts in Southern Gospel, The Talleys are bringing their performing career to a close with one last collection aptly titled, The Music Goes On. The album is now available for pre-order ahead of its April 24 release.

The Talleys’ career goes back more than 35 years when Debra, Roger, and Kirk Talley brought a fresh new sound, blazing trails that crossed over Christian music genres and became a foundation for many artists to follow. Roger and Debra left the road to raise their daughter Lauren, but later returned with her as part of the trio, quickly rising back to the top of the charts. Now, that chapter comes to a close as Debra and Roger retire and Lauren continues as a solo artist.

“It is our hope and sincere prayer that our music has touched your life in some way. As you listen to the last collection from The Talleys, we hope that the lyrics will touch your hearts as they have ours,” say The Talleys.

The album begins with “The Healer In The Grave,” an upbeat song featuring Lauren, written by her, Lee Black and Kenna West that tells the story of three who received miracles from Jesus before His crucifixion. They wonder if His death will return them to their former lives. But then Jesus conquers death and rises from the grave, breaking all the chains that bind.

Lauren sings lead again on “Looks Like Jesus To Me,” a moving song about living in the image of Christ and treating broken people as He would. The song waswritten about a Nashville ministry for the homeless called The Bridge, which was affected by the recent tornadoes there. As the ministry continues to help the homeless and hungry of Nashville that have been devastated and displaced by the storm, The Talleys ask for those interested in helping to make a donation.

On the rest of the album, Roger takes the lead on “This Day,” encouraging people to look at the bright side on a bad day. “If I can trust You with my forever / Then I can trust You, I can trust You with this day.” He’s featured again on the driving “Never Been A Time,” another positive reminder that God is always walking alongside us.

Debra is featured on “He Has,” a reminder that God has always been grateful, graceful and true. The song describes all the wonders Christ has done and what he continues to do in our lives. Other songs include “Triumphantly The Church Will Rise,” a re-recording of one of The Talleys’ biggest hits, and “Jesus Loves You,” written by Lee Black and Tony Wood.

The Talleys bring their final album to an end with a special message in “My Heart Is There With You.” Debra takes lead, wishing the blessings of peace, love and happiness to all who have enjoyed The Talleys’ music over the years. She sings, “It’s just a line to let you know I think of you and miss you so / And even though I’m far away my heart is there / You’re in my prayers and my heart is there with you”

“Our love and thanks go to all the wonderful writers that have allowed us to be the voice of their songs over the years. And to the musicians who have seen our vision for all our songs and bringing them to life, we couldn’t have done this without you,” say The Talleys. “To you, our friends, we thank you for supporting us, loving us, and for buying and listening to our music. While we won’t be ‘on the road’ in the future as a group, you are in our hearts and we are grateful that The Music Goes On.”
