BUTLER, HUGHES & HAYES - Adopted
Butler, Hughes & Hayes is an Eastern North Carolina-based quartet with a powerful sound for a
powerful message. Consisting of Lamar Butler, Darren Hughes, Michael Hayes and Matt Parker,
the group has released their fifth recording, "Adopted." This CD showcases who the group is,
their musical style, and the message that they want to portray.
As an album, "Adopted" is a refreshing mixture of original songs and traditional classics.
Original songs, some written by group members Darren Hughes or Michael Hayes, include
"Jesus Is Better" and "Around The Cross." The CD also includes fresh arrangements of classics
like "Jesus Will Outshine Them All," "The Dearest Friend I Ever Had" and "He Washed My
Eyes With Tears."
The title song, "Adopted," was written about the adoption of Darren and Margy Hughes'
daughter, Sophia, from China. Darren wrote the song and said, "I guess being a parent you really
get a better understanding of God's love for you. But also adopting a child, you understand even
more, I think, that aspect because God adopts us into His family. There are references in the Bible
that talk about that and how we've received the spirit of adoption to be sons and daughters, to be
His, and that's just a great parallel and a great example of God's love towards us."
Join Butler, Hughes & Hayes (and Parker) as they present twelve great songs on "Adopted."
