Memorial Day Weekend – Thursday Night at the Tent

If you’ve been attending an event so long you can’t remember what year you started going, I guess that makes it a tradition, right?  Because that’s the case when Memorial Day Weekend comes around – I know I’ll be in Carnesville, Georgia at the Indian Creek Memorial Day Weekend Gospel Singing.  Not only does Indian…

Hymn Sing Taping at Indian Trail Baptist Church

Shuttle buses maneuvered through the parking lot to let folks off at the church doors while guys in neon yellow vests directed even more cars to various areas of the lot.  I stood watching from inside the church windows and thought, “Where are they putting all of those cars?” Just that morning, my friend and…

The Mark Trammell Quartet in Silva

I think we can agree that the best way to start a new year is with Gospel Music. Surprisingly, when 2018 rolled around, I didn’t have to wait long to find a concert to attend.  In fact, I only had to wait five days.  That’s quite unusual for Missouri.  We’re known for having ice that…

Tribute Quartet – Maiden, NC

Tis the season…for concerts on the East Coast!  Last weekend I was in Alabama for Pat Barker’s “One Night Only” concert and this weekend I found myself in South Carolina for Abraham Productions’ “Girls and Guitars Tour.”  However…there just happened to be a concert the night before in Maiden, North Carolina with Tribute Quartet.  What…

Memorial Day at Indian Creek – Saturday Night

The last day of the Indian Creek Baptist Church Memorial Day Gospel Singing was also the warmest day, but with Thursday and Friday’s beautiful weather, who could complain?  And with the Mylon Hayes Family, Jonathan Wilburn and the Blackwood Brothers Quartet appearing on stage?… Well, it was bound to be a great evening! Before the…

Memorial Day at Indian Creek – Friday Night

If you were going to tack on a theme to the first two nights of the Memorial Day sing at Indian Creek, it could easily be this – live music.  Thursday night, we enjoyed the Primitive Quartet and Jeff & Sheri Easter who both have live bands.  Friday night, we heard more groups with great…

Memorial Day at Indian Creek – Thursday Night

American flags lined the top of the tent and gently waved with the cool breeze.  At the top of the hill, golf carts and ATVs idled in the parking lot, waiting to transport fans of Gospel music to the tent below. As you walked by the Snack Shack, you could smell the aroma of good…

Home of the Second Half Quartet

The last evening of the Truthseekers Homecoming was upon us.  As people buzzed around the lobby chatting with artists and buying that box of popcorn, I couldn’t help but replay the events of the day.  The Prayer Breakfast began with some amazing biscuits and gravy provided by Stonefort Baptist. Their pastor, Jeff Owens, brought the…

Going Green…

When you go to a Gospel Sing on St. Patrick’s Day, you never know what might turn up being green.  At the Friday morning Prayer Breakfast, it was the donuts.  Yep, that’s right – green Krispy Kreme donuts!  The batter was dyed green but they tasted just the same.  There was also an assorted box…
