Sunday, October 6, 2019

The World Famous Chuck Wagon Gang headlines this month's 3rd Sunday “Red Back Hymnal Singing” at the Hullander Farm In Apison. 

 

The Oct. 20 singing will start at 6 p.m. but the doors will open at 4 p.m. 

 

The Chuck Wagon Gang was founded in 1935.  Their Columbia records sold millions.  At one time the group was the label's top seller. 

 

The group is made up of Shaye Smith, Melissa Kemper, Stan Hill and Karl Smakula.  Mrs.

Smith is the current owner.  She is the granddaughter of original alto Anna Carter Davis, who was married to the late Governor Jimmie Davis.  Their latest CD “No Depression in Heaven” has reached the top of two Billboard Charts.  It’s a tribute album to the legendary Carter Family.

 

The Chuck Wagon Gang recently performed on the Grand Ole Opry Classic show and did two free concerts at the famous Ernest Tubb Record Shop in downtown Nashville. 

 

Organizer Bill Hullander said the group will sing all their favorites plus selections from their latest project.  He said the singings are always free but a love offering will be taken.

 

The CWG made famous the song I’ll Fly Away, Mr. Hullander's personal favorite.

 

The Hullander farm is located on London Lane two miles off East Brainerd Road.

Bob Tamasy: What If "Tomorrow" Never Comes

Most of us are amateurs at the majority of things we do. We try our best, but we’re not experts. But if there’s one thing many of us are pros at, it’s pro-crastinating. (Have you ever met an amateur-crastinator?) Tasks we dislike quite easily are delayed for another time. “Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow,” Aaron Burr is reputed to have said. Even though the ... (click for more)

Steve Ellison: The High Cost Of Rebellion

False pride and rebellion against authority cause many of our problems. Adam and Eve rebelled against God’s clear command. I have inherited that bent toward rebellion and not only am I inclined to rebel, sadly I do rebel. It is a sad fact of human nature, that when someone tells us what to do, we become at the least, defensive. Worse, we often go on the offensive. Who among us has ... (click for more)

The Wheel Tax Wouldn't Be A Sacrifice And Supports Our Teachers - And Response (9)

I appreciate our underpaid teachers here in Tennessee so much. We as a whole have a moral obligation to make sure we contribute to their pay. A wheel tax on our cars is a minimal expense to most of us. Sixty dollars is not enough for us to complain. We shouldn't even bat an eye at that if it contributes to the hard working teachers who sacrifice daily for our children. We ... (click for more)

One summer’s day when I was in my early teens, I was walking home from swimming practice and decided I might stop by the house of the most beautiful girl my age that I had ever seen, which was about halfway between the pool and where I grew up.
