Gold City News and Response to Colorado Shooting


It was a great, but busy weekend for Gold City. We started out in Smyrna, TN, with all the Unthanks at the Absolutely Gospel Music Festival, where we sang with several of our gospel music friends. Then it was two days in the studio to work on some new music. Saturday, we headed over to Jackson, TN for a great night with the folks at the Civic Center there at the annual Songfest, before wrapping things up at Tuscaloosa, AL on Sunday. Gold City is blessed to be able to do what we love to do–sing to great folks like you all across the country.

This is the weekend Gold City will be in concert at the James D. Vaughn Quartet Show held in Lawrenceburg, TN, the birthplace of southern gospel music. This is an annual concert, and this year’s event will be Thursday-Saturday, July 26-28. Gold City will be performing on the all-quartet night on Saturday with our buddies, The Kingsmen and the Mark Trammell Quartet. Host group the Kellys will also be performing and the weekend will be emceed by Josh Franks. The historic Crockett Theater will be the place to be for this great weekend of gospel music. For tickets or more information, call 1-800-547-6500. We will also be headed to Georgia and Ohio this weekend, so check our full schedule below or or for a complete list of tour dates.


You read it here first!! As most of you know, Gold City will once again be a part of the events in Louisville, KY during National Quartet Convention week. One of the three nights we will be performing is the ALL-QUARTET night on Wednesday, September 12th. For this evening’s concert set, Gold City is asking YOU to get involved. We want you to let us know what songs you would like to hear that evening. You will be creating our set list. It’s simple. Just email us the three songs you would like to hear us sing on Quartet Night, and we will take the top vote-getters and make that our song set for the night. Maybe you want to hear a classic like Midnight Cry, In My Robe of White or When I Get Carried Away. Or maybe you want to hear newer hits like I Cast My Bread, the recent chart-topping Peter James and John, or our latest single, Lord of Life. Perhaps you’d like a mixture of new and old. Just let us know. Send your entries to


We have some additional things in the works for NQC that we’re still putting the finishing touches on. More information will be available soon, but you won’t want to miss the historical significance of this year’s NQC for Gold City. Keep reading our weekly newsletter for details as they unfold.


Our dynamic lead singer, Jerry Pelfrey, has lost 240 pounds? That’s quite an accomplishment and speaks to his determination and dedication to improving his health. Way to go, Jerry!

"Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time." - Oswald Chambers


It’s been a week of tragedy in our nation. Our hearts mourn at the horrific events that took place in a Colorado movie theater this past weekend. Dear friends, we live in a world that desperately needs Jesus, and that makes what Gold City does even more important. We must spread the gospel no matter how we do it. It may be a pastor’s message, a quartet’s song, or some individual life like yours that lets the light of Christ shine upon everyone you meet. But everyone has a mission field. Hopefully, you have found yours and are doing all you can to reach the lost. As we pray for our nation, let us all resolve to live for Jesus every day in everything we do.
