The doors opened at six o’clock for the Girls and Guitars concert in Greenwood, South Carolina at Rice Memorial Baptist Church.  Though the sky had darkened and the temperature turned chilly, it didn’t keep folks from lining up around the building.  And it’s no exaggeration to say “lined up.”  The line ran the length of…

NQC – 2014 Red Back Hymnal Sing

On Friday afternoon I found myself back at the LeConte Center in the main hall waiting for another showcase to begin.  On stage, chairs were set up to accommodate what would be a choir of Southern Gospel singers.  Silently, I rebuked myself for forgetting my red back hymnal…again!  When will I ever remember to pack…

Hymns In The Morning

The Tent

“Everybody ready?” asked the driver, “Here we go…”  The golf cart holding myself, my sister, mom, grandma and another lady bumped down the hill to the big white tent.  I was sitting on the back, facing the parking lot and had to turn my head to see where we were going.  The tent was decorated…

Singing in the Sun – part 2

On Friday night, we had a great line up at Singing in the Sun; the Mark Trammell Quartet, Ivan Parker, the Talley’s, the Pfeifers and the Booth Brothers – it was awesome!  After some congregational singing, Ray Flynn opened the night in prayer and then shared how 73 people came to know the Lord that…

CD Review: Love Won – The Talleys

Love Won isn’t just a song or a CD…it’s a reality for every Christian.  With the Talley’s release of this recording early last year (2012) fans could not only enjoy new music, but build their faith with the encouraging lyrics in these songs.  Love Won is also the first Talley recording debuting vocalist Brian Alvey…
