Pouring Rain Making Big Splash on Amazon
Russell and Reed's first gospel album, "Pouring Rain" is wetting the competition on Amazon creating a stream of sales for the duo. The album has ranked # 1 in sales under MP3 album downloads, Christian/ Country and Bluegrass. It has ranked in the top 50 under Praise and Worship and is also ranking in Christian Contempary music. "We are very pleased and thankful for this initial success. God is really blessing us." said Reed Walters in a recent interview. But Reed emphasized that the album is not about profits. "Making money is fine but blessing others is the goal here. God has given us the gift of music as a testimony to Christ's saving power. We want God to use our music to bring people to His saving grace." Reviewers of the album Pouring Rain have raved about the unique gospel sound the Walters brothers have created. Commenting on the title track to the album, "Pouring Rain" one customer asked, I like how it starts off with a Jimmy Buffet kind of feel. Is it Jimmy Buffet?" No, not Mr. Buffet but the song definetly begins with a similar sound. No one would ever associate Jimmy Buffet with gospel music but somehow Russell has pulled it off. "Russell wrote that one and I love the beat and the lyrics. It's just a joy to ride down the rode listening and singing with it." Reed has a possible answer for the Buffett style appearing in the song. "James Ducker sings and plays with members of Buffett's band. When we were recording the song he put that sound in and we loved it." The Walters Brothers are excited that their music is reaching the public and are already thinking about their next project. Reed says, "Don't want to give anything away right now but can't wait to get started on it."
