In the year 1997, The Captain’s Crew released their first album, “Amazing Grace” and now 25 years later, The Crew is proud to announce the release of their 10th album,” The Captain’s Log, Friends, Faith & Songs of The Sea”.  The 13-song collection has an acoustic/bluegrass flavor with a nautical theme. The album has been dedicated to Dare Challenge of the Outer Banks, a faith-based drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Representing eight different Outer Banks churches, the musicians include members of the Crew, as well as other artists who have joined the band in services and concerts, at fairs, festivals and churches, including The North Carolina State Fair, The Midnight Jamboree, The Nashville Cowboy Church, Merle Fest and Singing on the Mountain.

The Captain’s Crew sang to a nationwide TV audience when they appeared on the television special, “An Outer Banks Christmas” and the “George Hamilton” special on the NC PBS Network. Two of their nine previous albums were listed for eligibility for Grammy consideration, and their songs can be heard on radio stations around the world including XM Satellite Radio.

All proceeds from the sale of this collection will go to benefit the ongoing work of the Dare Challenge Organization.  The mission at Outer Banks Dare Challenge is to help people who have life-controlling problems and initiate the discipleship process to the point where the student can function as a Christian in society, applying spiritually motivated Biblical principle to relationships in the family, local church, chosen vocation and the community.
