The Barn, The Hollow and The Singing

  “Just think of the blog,” said Pat Barker with a mischievous grin on his face.  At that moment, the only thing I could think of, or maybe, trying to think of, was why a perfectly sane girl from Missouri was going on a ride that was sure to make her sick.  It was a…

The Things That Never Happen

  “Would you remain standing and welcome our host group from just up the road in Gadsden, Alabama, the Mark Trammell Quartet!” exclaimed the emcee, Jay Parrack.  It was Saturday night at the Mark Trammell Quartet Homecoming and MTQ had just stepped on stage to kick off the night with Echoes From the Burning Bush. …

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…

Ouch!  It’s the 13th already!  As you can most likely gather, I’ve been a bit behind on posting the last couple of weeks.  But I hope it’s not too late to write the August newsletter!  You may have noticed that I missed July’s, but honestly, July was different this year.  For the first time, I…

A Preacher and A Prayer…

At any one of Abraham Productions’ events, like the Gatlinburg Gathering, there’s always something going on!  Once the afternoon showcase ended, we strolled down the street, had a burger at Five Guys (my first experience at that particular establishment. *wink*) and then hiked back to the convention center to see the other free showcase in…

An Afternoon With Gospel Music

  The streets of Gatlinburg were abuzz with life…heavy traffic, crowded streets, yep, it was a holiday weekend.  On the other hand, just inside the convention center fans were eagerly awaiting the afternoon matinee at the Gatlinburg Gathering.  Starting at one o’clock, artists such as Soul’d Out Quartet, the Browns, the Bowlings, Karen Peck and…
