From Gold City's Email Newsletter July 18, 2012
We had quite a time at Tony Gore’s Smokey Mountain BBQ last Thursday. Ribs, pulled pork, brisket, chicken–there’s not a bad item on the menu. And when you pair great food with southern gospel quartet music, it’s gotta be good. Tony fed us like we’d been starving for three weeks, and sent us on our way with all sorts of goodies, including the most incredible, from scratch, banana pudding with meringue two inches thick! We would like to make a disclaimer that, although we did eat a lot, we are not responsible for the recent rise in pork and beef prices in East Tennessee–at least we don’t think we are! In all sincerity, a special thanks to Tony for his continued efforts to showcase gospel music at his wonderful restaurant. That evening was the start to a super weekend tour that took us to both of the Carolina states, then back to Tennessee for two Sunday services. We love singing to great folks all across the country, and this week it was a pleasure to be on the bus. We want to give a special shout out to Pastor Chris Moody for the great message and hospitality at South Cleveland Church of God in Cleveland, TN on Sunday morning!
GREAT BIG WEDNESDAY
The Gold City bus is stopping in some exciting places this week! Wednesday, July 18, we will be with all the Unthanks at the 13th Annual Absolutely Gospel Music Fest held at River of Life Church in Smyrna, TN along with Beyond The Ashes, Crystal River, Freedom, and Buddy Jewel. This is going to be a great evening of music FREE to the public! We can’t wait!

Thanks to all of you for making our latest single, "Lord of Life" a Top Ten song. We just found out that it has moved to number 7 for September! This song is hope for anyone who believes. And it is our desire that through it, people would embrace the power of an empty cross and empty tomb for their very own lives!
