A Memorial To Remember…

The last night of the Indian Creek Memorial Day Weekend Gospel Singing featured a line-up with The Kingsmen, Whisnants and Brian Free and Assurance. For me, the three days we spent in Georgia went by too quickly and I tried to keep the thought of packing up and driving back home at bay.  Like each…

Southern Gospel Auctioneer

The golf cart zoomed from the grass lot downhill to the tent.  This afternoon, the sun kept its warm rays shining down on us as a cool breeze wafted our way.  There was already a line of folks waiting to enter the tent and the concession stand had quite a lengthy line as well.  It…

Freezing In Georgia

Over Memorial Day Weekend we packed up and drove to Carnesville, Georgia for the Indian Creek Memorial Day Weekend Gospel Singing.  We attended this sing for the first time last year (2014) and fell in love with the area, church staff and atmosphere the weekend promoted.  This year they had fantastic talent lined up and…

CD Review: Still – Booth Brothers

When I first heard about Still, I was interviewing the Booth Brothers for the August cover story of the Singing News.  This was back in the summer of 2014 and after completing successful phone calls, texts and emails to Michael, Ronnie and Jim (who was still with the trio at the time), I could not…

Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the Day After…

It is the day after Black Friday, which is the day after Thanksgiving and I’ve managed to still be alive.  How did I battle the crowds and remain unscathed?  Simple!  I stayed home and shopped on my computer.  (That’s kind of cheating, isn’t it?)  Oh well, I didn’t make many purchases anyway, so why face…

Ready, Set…September!

Has two months without a newsletter and sporadic concert reviews left you feeling like Lynn has fallen off the face of the earth?  Though sometimes she feels like it, I promise I’m still here!  I’ve been traveling a lot this summer and keeping up with this site and other responsibilities was a near impossibility.  So…

The Prayer Breakfast and The Last Concert

The bus leaves at 8:15 AM…somehow, no matter how tired you are, when those words are floating around in your head, it’s hard to sleep.  Thankfully, on Saturday morning I didn’t sleep through the alarm and my sis and I were ready to be at the bus at 8:15.  I know you’re wondering, why do…

Cavallo’s, Cockroaches and Church

“Does everyone see that green bus up ahead on the side of the church?” Duane asked as we pulled into the Second Baptist of Clinton, Tennessee.  “We’ll go out the side door up yonder where that bus is…and make sure you get on the right Cavallo bus!  There are two here this weekend and that…
