Battle Songs – Week 3

Well, time has slipped away from me this week!  On Tuesday I found myself in the car driving back from Singing in the Sun (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina) and didn’t get a chance to stop and up-load this post – I apologize for being late!  Anyway, our selection for this week will be a hymn…

We Need Each Other – Tracy Stuffle Benefit Concert

I remember the first time I saw the Perry’s in concert.  It was the inaugural year of Silver Dollar City’s Southern Gospel Picnic, we sat in the center section of Echo Hollow as the sun dipped below the horizon and Tracy, Libbi, Nick Trammell, Joseph Habedank and Matthew Holt took the stage.  It was a…

NQC Saturday Night – Freedom Hall Favorites

Another year of the National Quartet Convention came to a close on September 15th, 2012.  It was a wonderful week, and even though a good night’s rest was sorely lacking, I was sad that the event had to come to an end.  On the positive side, one of the best line-ups of the week was…

Tribute To A Legand

On a Monday morning I woke up in a hotel room in Nashville, Tennessee. The weather was less than kind the night before and I was still trying to convince myself it wasn’t the weekend – you could say that I’m still not use to attending Gospel events on a Monday! LOL However, I was…

Praise In A Mansion – In Branson

“Firsts” are special.  In life, things may get jumbled in the memory bank down through the years, but there is something irreplaceable about doing something for the first time.  You may remember the first time you attended NQC, or your first Gospel concert.  The first CD that developed your love for SGM or the first…

From Afghanistan To NQC – Friday Night

The Friday night Main Stage event at NQC was one memorable night for me, even though I was only able to be in Freedom Hall for the last half of the evening.  Our hosts for the night were Dennis Swanberg and Debra Talley.  I walked in when Gerald Wolfe was on stage leading the audience…

Real Tenors Wear Pink! – Thursday at NQC

The Thursday night Main Stage performance at NQC was one of the longest nights I spent in Freedom Hall.  It was just one of those nights that everyone I wanted to see was on, so when I reached my seat, I settled in for a long night!  Tim Lovelace entertained the audience with some “Fan…

Southern Gospel Sell Out At The Freeland Performing Arts Center

Over 800 people squeezed their way into the Freeland Performing Arts center in Bristow, Oklahoma, July 10th.  What would cause people to travel from Texas, North Dakota and the Carolina’s to small town Bristow? Maybe an evening with Master’s Voice, The Talley Trio and the Hoppers could do it? Definitely. Master’s Voice Homecoming was SOLD…
