To download the single Awake – VICTORIA BOWLIN RELEASES NEW SINGLE, AWAKE - 4/26/19 NASHVILLE, TN – Powerhouse Nashville recording artist, Victoria Bowlin, has announced the upcoming release of her new single, Awake. The hauntingly beautiful song, written by Victoria, calls the church to come alive to the power of the Lord. The lyrics encourage a weary world to “Awake O you sleeper, arise from the dead. Awake yourself!” Micah Schweinsberg of 65/40 Records produced Victoria’s new single, as well as doing all the instrumentation and mastering. As he promised when they announced her exclusive record deal, Awake is a fresh and contemporary cut that stretches the typical boundaries of her signature Southern Gospel / Country Gospel sound. When they signed Victoria in 2018, Micah stated “…from the first time I ever heard her sing, I knew that she was incredibly talented. But more than that, I felt her heart and love for others…” Deeply lyrical and poignant, Awake is a song you will add to your regular listening library. The musical score compliments the prophetic lyrics without overpowering the message. It promises to stir the soul, and delivers perfectly. Of Awake, Victoria shares “A couple summers ago, my husband and I were in a church meeting when the Spirit of God started speaking to me saying ‘Awake!’ It was followed by scriptures that said things like, ‘Awake oh you sleeper, arise from the dead…Awake yourself’. When we left I began to write down what the Lord was speaking as quickly as I could. It was coming almost faster than I could write, and within 15 minutes, the entire song was finished. It’s a prophetic declaration from the Lord saying to His Church, it’s time to wake up! We need a spiritual reviving, and it’s time!” She adds, “I am so excited that the song is completed and will be included as a bonus track on the new album I’m working on with 65/40 Records. Micah Schweinsberg really outdid himself on this song, and I can’t wait for the world to hear it!” Victoria has been working hard on her craft, and besides the newest album that she has in process, she will be featured at a concert in the Relentless Tour 2019, performing with greats such as Russ Taff and The Griffith Family.

To interview Victoria contact AG Publicity at VICTORIA BOWLIN AND HUSBAND AARON INVOLVED IN NEAR HEAD-ON COLLISION - 3/19/18 PURLEAR, N.C.- (March 19, 2018) – 65/40 Recording artist Victoria Bowlin and her husband, evangelist Aaron Bowlin, were recently involved in a near head-on collision. Victoria said, “I just want to thank God for His protection! We were around exit 148 on I-20 W in Alabama, only 45 mins from our hotel that evening, when a drunk driver was driving about 70 miles an hour straight towards us on the wrong side of the six-lane interstate. Aaron swerved just in time, missing a head on collision with this car. The car then hit the truck behind us, sending both of them spinning down the interstate and down an embankment behind us, and we pulled off immediately. My valiant husband jumped out of the car and ran to check on the guy that had just wrecked behind us, while I called 911. The drunk lady missed us by inches in the front, and the truck behind us missed us by inches in the back. I absolutely believe that God had an Angel in front of us and one behind, protecting us. The wreck wound up involving multiple cars. Thankfully, only one was injured. They had to pry his door open to get him out and took him away in an ambulance. He was hurt but okay. Be in prayer for him. This is why it’s so important not to drink and drive. Things could have been a lot worse and ended in a much different way. I’m so thankful that God is in control, and we were able to walk away without a scratch on us or our vehicle. Praise the Lord!” Victoria and Aaron were shaken but not hurt. The duo was able to keep all dates on their itinerary.
