We are a small company, just a husband and wife team, that love the Lord and like to express that love     through  music.  We have been involved in church music all of our adult lives and have used some tracks in our church but only started selling tracks through Cottage Tapes in 2002. We have sold them through some Christian bookstores in our area, at the Brumley Gospel Sing (as pictured) and National Quartet Convention, through Ebay store, and our web site.  Click here to read what our Ebay Customers say.

This picture shows our Merchant's Booth at the Brumley Gospel Sing in Lebanon, Missouri. We also have our accompaniment track CDs in Christian stores in this area and if you are a retailer and would like to carry our line of Cottage Tapes accompaniment CDs, please contact Us.  However, we are not a distributor for Daywind.

We are offering accompaniment CDs of hymns at modest prices. These are NEW ARRANGEMENTS of favorite hymns and gospel songs. Each track has the song accompaniment in 3 keys for medium, high, and low voice ranges and a vocal demo. Many are offered in different styles to suit your musical expression. The beautiful words and the familiar tunes of the old hymns are revitalized with these modern arrangements. They can be used for solos or congregations will enjoy singing with these tracks.  We are planning to continue to add new songs and styles and welcome your suggestions.  We are also offering accompaniment tracks of some of the newer songs, which are slightly more expensive because of the licensing fees. These are not the original tracks, but new arrangements of some of the great gospel classics.

There are also some original songs never before offered anywhere! Listen to the demos and decide if you would like to add these new songs to your collection. The Devil and His Men is always a hit at our church picnic.  Watch for more in the future!

If your church does not have a pianist sometimes, Simply Hymns may fill a need for your congregation.  Each CD has 10 hymns that are still sung in our churches today.  These are plain and simple hymns on keyboard only, very much as written in the hymnal, so simple no demo is needed.  Lyrics are included but the hymns will probably be in most hymnals.

A few years ago we expanded our line to include Daywind accompaniment tracks.  These are great performance soundtracks of some of the newest popular songs recorded by Nashville's fine musicians.  Our line includes Southern Gospel and Contemporary, including many titles for special holidays and events.

Daywind Karaoke Tracks are a great buy!!!!  You can buy six great accompaniment tracks for less than the cost of 2 single song accompaniment CDs.  They include hymns, Southern Gospel, Country Gospel, Kids Songs, and Praise & Worship.

Our daughter has home schooled her four children and could not find a curriculum  teaching Missouri history and geography with literature so she wrote one. This is a Missouri History Guide written for home schoolers, using the literature approach. Children can discover the rich heritage of Missouri by reading books, checking out web sites, taking field trips, and then organizing their discoveries in a personal notebook.  It's a way to enjoy studying and students are more likely to remember what they learn.  One home school group in Missouri has used the guides in their group for several years.

We enjoy learning about what inspired our wonderful old hymns and we think that makes the songs more meaningful. On our Lyrics and Inspirational Stories page, you can read the words of these hymns that reflect the deep convictions and feelings of the authors and have been passed down through generations of Christians. If you are looking for the lyrics to a public domain hymn, we would be happy to check our old hymnals to see if we can find the lyrics.

We would appreciate any comments or suggestions you have, whether or not you make a purchase. You may email us at or click on the
