DifferenceMedia.WebDifference Media—home to some of the leading names in Southern Gospel music and a division of John Hagee’s Cornerstone Church in San Antonio—recently signed an exclusive distribution agreement with EMI CMG Distribution, now called Capitol Christian Distribution.

Capitol will oversee worldwide retail distribution at both Christian and mainstream outlets, as well as digital distribution, for upcoming releases from artists including Aaron & Amanda Crabb, Canton Junction, Matthew Hagee, Tim Duncan, The Cornerstone Sanctuary Choir, John Hagee and The Hagees.

The inaugural release under the new agreement will be the April 23rd launch of Mercy by Cornerstone worship leaders Aaron and Amanda Crabb. The fourth recording from the popular duo, recently named “Ones to Watch in 2013” by GMCtv online, was produced by Aaron Crabb and Ben Isaacs. The album includes the debut multi-format Christian radio single “Take Him to the Place,” a personal anthem of hope and healing penned during a trip to Israel, and the mainstream country single “I’m Learning.”

“Difference Media was founded on a strong tradition of gospel music and the power of its message,” said Greg Bays, senior vice president of sales and marketing for the distributor. “EMI CMG Distribution is pleased to be a part of this ongoing tradition with their artists and inspiring releases. We look forward to expanding Difference Media’s impact with this worldwide distribution agreement.”

“We are thrilled to partner with EMI CMG Distribution, and believe it will serve to further the impact of Difference Media and our family of artists,” said Matthew Hagee, pastor at Cornerstone. “We couldn’t be prouder of the releases we have planned for the year, beginning with Aaron and Amanda’s recording, and we are grateful to EMI CMG for helping us make the music more broadly available.”
