McKamey Legacy is a family trio from Clinton, Tennessee that came to be after 39 years of full-time touring with the rest of their family, The McKameys. After that group retired in 2019, and after much prayer, group members Connie Fortner (Ruben and Peg's daughter), her husband, Roger Fortner and their son, Elijah Fortner felt the call from God to continue the legacy of their family and they began traveling and singing again in 2021 as McKamey Legacy.
McKamey Legacy has just released their debut single "Still," via Horizon Records. Written by Connie's sister, Sheryl Farris, who also sang with the McKameys --- and whose name appears on many of their biggest hits --- its gently rolling rhythms and melodic curves underline the lyric's message of comfort:
"Still God's mercy and love never cease
Still He offers me unending perfect peace
I will trust in Him alone
My hope and where my help comes from
Still He's a refuge and strength in troubled days
Still though the Earth moves I will not be afraid
He will not fail, He will not fall
He is King over all
The group will be touring on a part-time basis, performing songs that were loved and most requested from their McKamey days as well as some new songs that fit their message. Sharing the Gospel in song to a lost world and sharing the message of hope to discouraged Christians is their goal, following God in everything that they do and bringing Glory to God in all things done by them.
