Brothers of the Heart – CD/DVD release Jan 20, 2023

Brothers of the Heart, featuring award-winning americana/bluegrass/country/gospel artists Jimmy Fortune, Bradley Walker, Mike Rogers, and Ben Isaacs — returns with its 12-track sophomore album “Listen to the Music” this Friday, January 20.

Produced by group member Ben Isaacs, the Brothers reimagine country, gospel and pop classics, including “Ring of Fire,” “Desperado” and “Bye Bye Love,” showcasing the super group’s harmonies and arrangements.

“I feel like it starts with doing your best to honor the music’s roots,” Isaacs says. “There are little signature licks, and I felt like it was important to not change an arrangement so much that you confuse people. So much of this type of record is about recognizability, so you want to do everything that you can to put your stamp on it but to also honor the originals.”

The Brothers will celebrate their new record with a performance on the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday, February 7.

Listen to the Music’s debut track, the group’s reimagining of The Statler Brothers’ “I’ll Go to My Grave Loving You,” above.

Following Brothers of the Heart’s debut album Brotherly Love, with more than 31 million streams worldwide, the “Listen to the Music” record will be accompanied by a performance DVD and TV special. Filmed at the Opry’s iconic Studio A and hosted by The Statler Brothers’ Don Reid, the TV special will debut on Thursday, January 19, at 6:30PM EST on RFD-TV with an additional airing on Saturday, January 21, at 6:00PM EST.

The special will air on UPtv on Sunday, January 29th, at 9:00 AM and will be seen on PBS, TBN, Heartland, GaitherTV, FamilyNet, CTN, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN.
“For me, this is so much more than music,” says Walker. “When you hear people talk about this group they say, ‘You can tell that you all love each other, and you can tell you all are having fun.’ That’s the best thing about it to me. That’s so much of the appeal of the group. It’s not just songs, the music, the harmonies and all that, but the love between us and our love for people. I’m so thankful to be a part of this.”

    Hello Jimmy and Nina

    I hope you have a great 2024. I hope to get to some of your shows this year. I see you’re going to be in Kingman Kansas on February 24. I know Stuie and Camille will be doing their shows in Nebraska on those dates. Maybe you can swing through Nebraska. Whose Jimmy got lined up to play while Stuie is on tour?

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Sam Banks will be filling in for the four dates Stuie will not be able to make. He’s a great musician and has filled in for him before.

    Yours Kindly Ian, Elaine

    • Nina Fortune says:

      If you go to the “store” tab on this website you can see if you can buy from there. We have an option to pick Australia as a shipping option. Shipping there from here is expensive though.

    My wife of 30 years just passed away june 6 of 2023. The songs have a very meaningful affect on me. Till death do you part. Someone that will never be replaceable. Very wonderful lady. AKRON IOWA

    • Paula Johnston says:

      Mr. Rohlfs, we’ve never met, but in searching for a particular song, I saw your post and it touched my heart to the point that I couldn’t continue scrolling without telling you how very sorry I am for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family as you work each day to live with the emptiness the loss of your wife brings. My husband and I have been married 47 years, and that only enables me to imagine the depth of your pain. We will pray that your pain eases, that your grief will subside to the point you can remember precious times and smile. Again, I’m so sorry and truly believe God will walk with you every day and give you comfort. Take care.

  7. Dennis Shifflett says:

    At the Rockingham County Fair, Jimmy mentioned a new project with a release date of November of this year. I can find no articles on this project. Have there been any publicity releases on this as yet? Thank you.

  8. Carolyn Shirk says:

    Which CD is the 2023 , and does it have a lot of hymns I hope? please!

    • Nina Fortune says:

      It’s called Listen to the Music.

      • Paula Johnston says:

        Mrs. Fortune, I’m certain you must receive so many messages and request for information, and the truth is, I’m just another fan doing the same thing. So, thank you so much, in advance, for allowing me to add to the list of people with questions. We listened to Mr. Fortune sing “My Girl” this morning and I’ve searched for a CD with that song on it ever since. Can you help me with that, please? Also, we had no idea you had your own page so we could buy music here rather than Amazon. There are a number of CD’s and DVD’s we’d like to have and would love to have a list of what’s available from you. I apologize if this is not the appropriate way to ask a question. Again, thank you so much for responding. So you know, my husband and I are in our 70’s and listen to a lot of music these days. Your husband is a huge part of our listening enjoyment.

        • Nina Fortune says:

          We posted My Girl on Facebook with this description – On the new Brothers of the Heart project, Will the Circle Be Unbroken. Release date 11-3-23
          You can purchase any of Jimmy’s projects here on this website.
          Thank you so much!!

  9. Robert Henley Woody says:

    I consider the compositions written by Jimmy Fortune to be uniquely creative.

  10. Ron Boyd says:

    Hi we saw Jimmy in his last perforated the mining camp before it burned. We have always loved the Statler Brothers and Jimmy’s being added to the group improved an already great group. Where can we get the cd that was just released. Hopefully you have a speedy recovery.

  11. Melody and Dean Moore says:

    We ordered the Brotherly Love CD and the Brothers Of The Heart CD. We received the Brothers Of The Heart DVD instead of the Brotherly Love CD. ORDER NUMBER 4586. Please send the Brotherly Love CD and advise what we should do with the DVD? We also received the Brothers Of The Heart CD, which we are enjoying.

  12. Julie Young says:

    I am a huge fan of these men, of the songs they chose for Brotherly Love, and I am so excited for Brothers of the Heart – Listen to the Music. I just cannot wait!

  13. CG Roberts says:

    I totally enjoyed Brothers of the Heart debut. I have always loved
    harmony and you have some of the BEST. Thank you for sharing your
    gifts with us.

    Eat your heart out Dooby Brothers, Jimmie and group did Listen to the Music better than y’all did! I find that in many of the songs that Jimmie does…it’s better than the original artist! God bless y’all! By the way, would love to hear Jimmie sing Blue Bayou
