Hey, y'all! Wow! The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind! We were so blessed to perform at Silver Dollar City during their Bluegrass & BBQ festival. We had a blast to say the least!!! The A-Team, Ms. Amanda Carson and Ms. Elyse Green, are SO AWESOME! The WHOLE stage crew, Mandy, Gideon, Mike, Lauren and Ledge, are incredible to work with! They know how to take care of people and make you feel so welcomed & prepared!
While at Silver Dollar City, we met so many wonderful people and were encouraged by the positive response. Our dear friend, "Uncle" Paul Duncan invited us to share our music at his church in Crestline, Kansas. We had an amazing time worshipping with the congregation there. Look forward to coming back real soon.
Joshua filled in as the guitar player for our friends, Dixie Jubilee, in the KSMU Youth in Bluegrass Band Contest at Silver Dollar City. It was an extremely close competition. All the groups were great! They tied for second place with a fantastic group called Kentucky Just Us! We're so proud of them and Joshua had an awesome time!
When we left for Mountain View, Arkansas, we were sad to leave our new and old friends, but we were excited about our very first time to play in Mountain View. The jamming was like nothing else! We had a great time! Our concert at the “Hole in the Wall” Theater in Mellon's Country Store was a hit! The small theater was 80% full, and we had a blast. Look for videos from that venue coming soon to our YouTube channel! So grateful to our friends, Ms. Crystal McCool and her daughter, Lilly Ann, for helping us make this connection. We look forward to returning Mountain View next year!!!
We had the privilege of performing at Allenville Baptist Church on our way home back to Knoxville. This is a very special church family! And that is exactly what they are to us, FAMILY! They SURPRISED us with a birthday cake for Daddy & Momma and included cards and presents! What a blessing!!!
Weep with those who weep... and this dear church family has had it’s share of heartache. We are praying for the Lord to heal those that are hurting and sick and we’re praying for those that have begun a new relationship with Christ. God bless you, Allenville Baptist Church!!!
We're preparing now for our last long weekend of concerts before our mission trip. We'll be performing at Dollywood, The Empty Cup, and The Wild Wing Cafe. Keep us in your prayers! That's all for now!
