Rhonda Vincent -
Bluegrass Music
4/22/17  7:00 p.m.


Bluegrass vocalist and fiddler Rhonda
Vincent began her professional music
career at the age of five, playing drums with
her family's band, the Sally Mountain Show.
She picked up the mandolin at eight and the
fiddle at ten, performing with the family band
at festivals on weekends. After appearing on
TNN's nationally televised You Can Be a
Star program in her mid-twenties, Vincent
struck out on her own, singing with the
Grand Ole Opry's Jim Ed Brown, eventually
leading to a deal with Rebel Records. Her
work with Brown and her Rebel recordings
caught the attention of Giant Nashville's
president, James Stroud, who signed
Vincent to record two contemporary country
albums. After her time at Giant, she moved
to Rounder Records, and demonstrated her
passion for the traditional music she grew
up with on Back Home Again.

The year 2015 saw the release of her
second holiday album, Christmas Time,
which featured four new originals and a
rendition of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"
that boasted guests spots from Dolly Parton,
Willie Nelson, the Oak Ridge Boys, and
several others.

Collingsworth Family -
Gospel Music
6/17/17  7:00 p.m.

The Collingsworth Family ministry has been
featured on the nation’s largest gospel
music syndicated radio program, The
Gospel Greats with Paul Heil as well as on
Daniel Britt & Friends on XM/SIRIUS Satellite
Radio’s Enlighten. Their music is regularly
featured on Enlighten, GMT (Gospel Music
Television), The DayStar Television Network,
and has also been featured in one hour
prime-time specials on the INSP Television
Network. The Collingsworth Family, at the
personal invitation of Bill & Gloria Gaither,
appeared on the newest Homecoming
Series taping filmed at the Grand Ole Opry in
Nashville, TN. They have also been added
as regulars on many of the Gaither
Homecoming Concerts, making
appearances with Gaithers in some of their
largest venues in the US and Canada. Their
personal appearance schedule shows the
broad appeal their family emphasis has,
performing in all types of venues across the
US, the Cayman Islands, and recently in
Sweden.

The rapid expansion they have seen occur
with the transition to an all-concert ministry
is a direct result of the emphasis they have
placed on the power of prayer. Each
Tuesday evening, they hold a private prayer
meeting in their home for the specific
purpose of praying for the salvation of their
children and the expansion of their ministry.
Since the beginning of these weekly prayer
meetings in 2000, the doors of opportunity
for ministry have opened to them, crossing
all evangelical denominational boundaries.
Phil & Kim’s entire purpose is to give the
talent God has loaned them back to their
Creator as a sacrifice of praise.
Adam Crabb, The Bowling Family,
Terah Crabb Penhollow -  
Gospel Music
7/21/17 6:00 p.m.

Adam's musicianship along with his
powerful vocal delivery is true to the style that
the Crabb Family fan has come to expect
and enjoy. As you would expect, he is
committed to ministry and considers this
"life" a calling instead of a career. But one
notices quickly that Adam is a perfectionist
when it comes to his music. He possesses
immense talent and passion that is
uncommon, impossible to teach, and simply
given to a few as a special gift straight from
Heaven! To watch him play the harmonica is
a pure delight. His reputation as a studio
musician is impressive, but his "home" is
truly the "live" performance. He electrifies a
large auditorium with that unbelievably small
harmonica. This is a must see!

The Bowling Family has appeared on the
Gaither Homecoming series concerts and
videos, TBN, during Gospel Music Week’s
Dove Awards, at GMA’s Seminar in the
Rockies and numerous other major events.
Their debut release, Faith To Believe, has
garnered a record four number one songs
(“We Have A Saviour,” “Your Cries Have
Awoken The Master,” “A Miracle Today” and
“Notified”), as well as the 2008 Song of the
Year (“Your Cries Have Awoken The Master).
The Bowling Family combines talent,
sincerity and experience to create a
memorable concert experience. Their goal
for the evening is to usher in the presence of
God and celebrate the Christian message.
They feel privileged and honored to enjoy the
freedom to honor Christ with any and all of
their abilities.

Terah Crabb-Penhollow is a Grammy
nominated, multi-Dove award winning
singer.  However, the awards, success, and
stellar accomplishments that Terah has
been blessed to enjoy are not what one
remembers about Terah. Terah is famous
for her smile, her loving concern for all, and
her ability to sing from her soul with the
authority that we rarely see in a vocalist.  She
owns a song while she sings it, and she
owns the audience with that unassuming
personality.  Terah exudes talent, but beyond
that, she has a special calling during this
season of her life.

Michael Combs
New Dove Brothers  -  
Gospel Music
7/22/17 6:00pm

On February 6, 1989, something wonderful
happened! Jesus Christ became Michael
Comb’s personal Savior, and Michael
Combs became a born-again child of God.
Jesus put a new song in Michael’s heart.
What terrific news that is for those of us who
love him and enjoy his music. It is this
personal relationship with the Lord Jesus
Christ that shines through Michael’s
testimony, music and personality. His love
for Jesus reflects to all, and anybody who
meets him can’t help but notice that Michael
is enjoying every step of his journey with his
Savior and Friend.

Michael Combs’ style is unique, as is
everything else about him. He has an acute
love for the Lamb of God, which bubbles
over into everything he says and does. God
not only powerfully uses Michael Combs in
singing, but He also shines through Michael’
s guitar and piano playing. Whether singing,
playing the guitar, or playing the piano,
Michael faithfully shares God’s message in
song, holding strong to his faith and belief
that all he needs is found in Almighty God.

The NEW DOVE BROTHERS - In 1998 a
quartet was formed that took the Southern
Gospel industry by storm. Bringing to the
stage an excitement and a style that had not
been seen since the glory days of gospel
music. Now that McCray Dove, Tony Peace
and Wesley Smith have joined together to
form the New Dove Brothers it looks like
history is repeating itself. McCray and Tony
are known as two of the most exciting
performers in the world of southern gospel
music. Wesley Smith ties it all together with
his smooth high tenor voice. The New Dove
Brothers are committed to the cause of
Christ and to keeping that classic southern
gospel style and sound. With songs like Get
Away Jordan and Didn't It Rain you can't help
but to clap your hands and tap your feet and
when The New Dove Brothers begin to sing
the great hymns of the church your heart will
be reminded why these songs are timeless.
If you love harmony and high energy then
you don't want to miss a New Dove Brothers
concert.

The Grascals -
Bluegrass Music
10/21/17 7:00 p.m.
The Grascals make music that is entirely
relevant to the here and now, yet immersed
in traditional values of soul and
musicianship. It’s a unique sound that has
earned three Grammy® nominations and
two Entertainer of the Year awards from the
International Bluegrass Music Association,
as well as national media attention that
seems to perpetually elude acts entrenched
in niche genres. Such appearances include
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Fox &
Friends, The Late Late Show with Craig
Ferguson, and CBS’ The Talk. All the while,
stages that represent the strongest bastions
of tradition continually welcome them, as
evidenced by the over 150 performances on
the Grand Ole Opry. Honors also include
performing twice for President George W.
Bush and at President Barack Obama’s
inaugural ball at the Smithsonian.

Lip Sync Battle -
11/4/17  Time TBA

Area First Responders will be
challenging each other in hopes of, not only
taking home the coveted 1st Place Winner
trophy, but a sizeable cash award for their
own department.  There will also be cash
awards for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th place
winners.

The premise is simple – participants
(groups of 4 or more) mime the vocals of
popular music while performing on stage in
front of an appreciative audience. The fun
comes from seeing just how enthused our
local firemen, EMT’s, policemen, etc., are to
impress the crowd and win a prize. The
great thing about a lip sync is that you don’t
actually need any real talent, just a desire to
perform.  We strongly encourage creative
costumes because the crowd is there to
enjoy a show and their response will be
considered in the selection of winners.  
Everything is in the spirit of fun and all
performances (lyrics, dancing, costumes,
etc.) MUST be “family-friendly”.

The Hoppers -
Gospel Music
11/18/17 7:00 p.m.

The Hoppers have been a mainstay in the
field of gospel music for more than 50 years.
Claude and Connie Hopper began making
their way around North America on a bus in
1957 with The Hopper Brothers & Connie.

Over the years, the Hopper Brothers and
Connie welcomed and parted with
musicians and singers who went on to
acclaimed service in the gospel music.
Eventually Connie and Claude’s two sons,
Dean and Michael, joined them full-time as
lead vocalist and drummer to form The
Hoppers. Kim Greene’s powerhouse
soprano voice was added to the group in
1989, after she and Dean were married.

With classic family harmonies that stay true
their southern gospel roots, their sound has
progressed to new heights with each
recording. Throughout the ‘90s, the group
began to see their songs achieve
widespread success with number one
Southern Gospel hits including: “Milk and
Honey,” “Here I Am,” “Anchor to the Power of
the Cross,” and ”Mention My Name.” Since
that time, The Hoppers have received
numerous accolades including Mixed Group
of the Year from the Heart’s Aflame Awards,
Diamond Awards, Singing News Fan
Awards, and the Southern Gospel Music
Association.

The Hoppers have been nominated for GMA
Dove Award four times, and in 1998 Connie
was presented with the prestigious Marvin
Norcross award, which is given to those with
excellence in “Devotion to family, service to
Church, and contributions to the Gospel
Music Industry.” Singing News Fan Award for
Musician of the Year has been given to
Michael, and Kim has consistently been
awarded the Singing News Fan Award for
Female Vocalist and Favorite Soprano for
well over a decade.
