GIVE-A-WAY – It’s A Wonderful Life

One of my new year resolutions for this blog is to do a give-a-way every month. As you can see, I already failed miserably for January! So, let’s start off February right – and give away Legacy Five’s current project “A Wonderful Life.” The title song, written by Jim Brady is the first song on…

Legacy Five – The Finer Things In Life

When the temperature outside is in the lower 30’s there’s nothing like some good ole’ Southern Gospel Music to warm you up!  Legacy Five did just that in Mountain Home, Arkansas at the East Side Baptist Church.  This quartet, made up of Gus Gashes (tenor), Scott Fowler (lead), Scott Howard (baritone), Glenn Dustin (bass) and…

1 Quartet + 2 Families = 3 Great Ways To Begin The New Year!

The last day of any event is bittersweet.  Bitter because it’s almost over – sweet because you’ve made some special memories while you were there.  That’s what it was like on the last morning of Legacy Five’s NYE Celebration.  Yet, with a line up like Doug Anderson, The Crist Family, Legacy Five and the Collingsworth…

A New Year’s Eve Jubilee!

New Year’s Eve…the day that transitions us from one year to another, where you stay up late, drink punch and eat popcorn.  It is a day that we spend celebrating.  How do you spend New Year’s Eve?  Is there a concert near your area that you attend annually?  After a stellar Bible Conference in Charlotte,…

Christmas, Watermelons and a Bus Wreath

Ahhhh, the last concert before Christmas – and what a concert it was!  Out of all the artists that come into the area every year, this group is one that is rare to find in Southern Missouri.  Yet, when they do get booked in, they make some of the best memories and perform some of…

Singing in the Season with Tribute Quartet

With Christmas right around the corner, there is nothing like seeing your favorite artists sing those favorite holiday tunes live!  Last weekend, I had the opportunity to do just that with the Tribute Quartet in Grove, Oklahoma.  Christ Church was decorated for the season with two beautiful trees on each side of the stage, Christmas…

Black Friday’s Best Deal of All – The Kingsmen!

Okay, I’m just dying to know!  How many SGM fans forfeited shopping to go to a concert on Black Friday?  Or…How many attended a concert and went shopping?  How many did neither?  Well, I fell into the first category – didn’t brave the crowds in the stores, but I did mingle in with the traffic…

BFA – Demonstrating Real Faith

As I took a front row seat at the Brookline First Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri, the pastor and music director taped a sign that said, “Welcome Brian Free and Assurance,” to the carpeted stage.  I was delighted with finding a seat in the front, and after making some new friends and catching up with…

Ministry That Makes a Difference

The first Saturday of November is always blocked off on my calendar.  As an avid Southern Gospel Concert goer, I bet you can guess why!  (If you guessed a Gospel concert, you were right!)  The McCunes, along with Duane Garren have faithfully been bringing SGM to Mountain Grove, Missouri  for eight successive years, and not…
