Behind The Scenes On 9/11

Sunday With The Whisnants and Greater Vision

September first dawned on a Sunday morning and though fans of SGM hated to admit it, the Southern Gospel Picnic was drawing to a close.  Sunday was the second to last day of the festival.  Who would have thought you could have so much fun in the heat?  LOL  Ah, but you can!  I tried…

Welcome To The 8th Annual…

“With the Mark Trammell Quartet and the Whisnants, these next 12 hours are going to be marvelous,” announced Danny Jones.  Unimpressed, the crowd at Hill Crest Baptist Church in Anniston, Alabama remained silent.  Defeated, Danny rolled his eyes and mumbled something about the “thunderous applause” that he obviously thought should have erupted at that point. …

Saturday Night In Gatlinburg

Saturday night marked the end of the Gatlinburg Gathering.  Peeking out from behind the clouds, the sun finally decided to show itself for the first time that weekend, as if its presence was required to give the Abraham Productions sing a proper farewell for the year of 2013.  After a parade, four days of Southern…
