- Nominated Top Five Christian Country Group of the Year, 2016 Christian Country Diamond Awards!
- Nominated Top Ten Christian Country Group of the Year, 2016 Southern Gospel Diamond Awards
With roots planted firmly in faith and family… a #1 song… an appearance at 2016 CMA Music Festival in Nashville… and a fresh sound with a message that endures… The Tacketts and their band Powell Creek Junction share God’s grace and mercy with those who desperately need encouragement.
Signed by: The Tacketts joined Stanley Music Group in 2016.
Radio Success: Filling approximately 100 dates a year, The Tacketts’ 7th project - “Stand My Ground” - was released in 2016. Their radio release “Mirror Mirror” hit #1 on the RadioMusicFM chart and #1 on the worldwide HLE Radio Christian Country Countdown. The Tacketts have consistently had charting success on numerous Christian radio outlets across multiple genres and are now being heard on mainstream country as well. They were a Top Five Nominee for Christian Country Group of the Year for the 2016 Christian Country Diamond Awards.
Latest Single: Nationally released in October 2016 to Christian Country and Music Row, their new charting single – “And I Know” – takes you on a journey through the tender relationship between a mother and daughter. The momma’s wisdom doesn’t fully resonate with her young daughter until that girl goes through life and grows older, and by then it’s almost too late.
Background: Husband and wife Jeff and Sarah Tackett and their band, Powell Creek Junction, carry on a long tradition of tight harmonies in music ministry. Jeff’s been singing and touring since the age of eight with his family's gospel group, “The Tackett Family.” As a preacher's kid, he traveled from their home in Shelby, Ohio, to share their music ministry from 1979 to 1994, followed by a solo career. Jeff’s rich country vocals are the perfect blend with his wife Sarah’s tender voice that touches the heart and spirit. Sarah is a former Miss Ohio and talent award winner in the Miss America Pageant. A graduate of Bowling Green State University, she has a background in musical theater, TV and radio commercials, and voice-overs. She's been a featured speaker and emcee for special events and women's conferences. The Tacketts live in Defiance, OH with their four children.
The Tacketts will be well-received by audiences at any concert stage, church, fair, festival, faith conference or venue where they are invited to share their music and message.
