| Members of the Community Concert Association of Union City/Obion County will have the opportunity to hear Grammy® winner and veteran Gaither Vocal Band soloist Guy Penrod when he appears in Dyersburg next month. |
His concert is part of the Dyersburg Live On Stage concert series, which local Community Concert members may attend.
He will present his powerful vocal style in a heartwarming collection of gospel songs at First Christian Church at 1200 Community Park Road on Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Penrod’s tenure with the legendary Gaither Vocal Band is marked by 14 albums, two Grammy awards and multiple Dove awards. He has also embarked on a solo country music project, which is a return to his own musical roots. His career began in Nashville as a studio back-up singer, recording with some of the genre’s most prominent artists. Penrod’s solo performance features a classic selection of gospel favorites, but will include a selection of original country songs and stories from his life reflecting his positive worldview. The performance will also feature a trio of instrumentalists.
