Spring Hill Worship Signs New Artist

Worship Leader Carl Cartee Signs Exclusive Agreement with Worship Label

BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--October 11 th, 2005-Spring Hill Worship, an imprint of Spring Hill Music Group, Inc., has just signed an exclusive recording agreement with singer/songwriter/worship leader Carl Cartee. Cartee, who has traveled for over a decade as a concert
performer, worship leader and worship mentor, is slated to release his debut recording, Unfailing, with Spring Hill Worship in March
of 2006.

Cartee's talents have been heard nationally over the past year through his writing and vocal features on other Spring Hill Worship projects
including Songs from the Bennett House, The Rocks Cry Out and The Glorious Impossible recordings. His vocals have been
playing over the airwaves on the Top 30 radio single "My Offering" as well as on the current single "Unfailing Love," now playing at
Inspirational and adult contemporary stations nationwide.

Carl states, "I used to love being a bachelor, until I met my wife...being on a team is much better. I enjoyed being an indie artist until I

hooked up with Spring Hill Worship. Now I feel like I have someone to take the field with me. I can't wait to see what immeasurable

things God will do with our collective faith."


Cartee is known for his rock-inspired guitar playing, his laid-back on stage approach and rasp-tinged driving lead vocals. In addition to a
degree in music, Carl has served as a church worship leader himself but now travels full-time in addition to his songwriting. His touring,
which often includes youth and college student camps, has taken him to France, Brazil, India and Africa in addition to the United States
when he's not at his home in Nashville, Tenn.

"We at Spring Hill Worship feel very honored to be associated with the music ministry of Carl Cartee," stated Spring Hill Worship A&R director Phil Johnson. "People love to actually sing Carl's music almost as much as they like hearing him sing it. The interesting thing about Carl is that he, as a person, is just like his music, full of integrity and substance."


Cartee was a recent guest on the international radio program "Soul2Soul"; and many of his songs featured on the
Spring Hill Worship line are being performed by worship teams nationwide, including the title cut from the new release The Glorious Impossible. He founded the Summer Worship Experience, an intern program designed to train college-age
musicians and vocalists to lead worship. In November, Cartee will play alongside veteran performer/songwriter Scott Krippayne and acclaimed powerhouse vocalist Charity Von in Jekyll Island, Ga., at a WAY FM listener appreciation
event.

Unfailing will be distributed by Word Distribution/WEA with digital distribution by EMI CMG Distribution. For further
information, visit www.springhillworship.com or www.carlcartee.com .

Spring Hill Worship is a line of worship products created specifically for the desires and nees of today's church and
church leaders with an emphasis on creating new copyrights for the church. It features songs crafted by leading
worship writers and introduces up-and-coming worship leaders of today.

Congrats about Springhill and your new CD on the worship lable. I just found out more about you from a springhill update (I have a good friend who works with springhill and he knows my passion for worship music).
I have all the springhill compilations and love each of them for different reasons.
May God richly bless you and continue to have his hand on you and your family. (especially as the arrival of your blessing draws closer)
On my knees,
Annie
