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.
