From Gold City's Newsletter of October 31, 2012:
Gold City was all over the map this weekend. We started out in Strasburg, VA on Thursday, then made our way to Port Crane, NY. Saturday we were in Cranberry, PA, when Hurricane Sandy started gaining momentum. Guess you could say we sang up a storm, because the rain and wind seemed to follow us right over to Shelby, OH where we finished out the weekend. Great times with great people, singing the greatest music in the world. Not a bad combination at all! And we were glad to have Daniel Riley back on the road with us this weekend after a few weeks off for some sinus surgery. He’s back and sounding great!
THE WEEK AHEAD
It’s a very important time in our nation. On November 6th, we will be electing many political candidates into office, including the head of our nation for the next four years. The privilege to vote is an honor that we should not take lightly or for granted. Many countries around the world do not have the right to let their voice be heard. Thousands of men and women have died defending the freedoms and rights we have in the United States. This is a call to action– pray for wisdom at the voting poll, and exercise your right to vote!
I GET DOWN
Thank you for calling in to your local radio station and requesting our latest single, "I Get Down." We think it is a message that prayer equals hope! So many of you let us know each week in concert that you are fighting battles, and many more of you have those unspoken burdens that are so private, you can’t even share them. But we know that down on our knees is the place to take care of it all. So, keep requesting and listening and knowing that we are lifted up when we get down on our knees.
Did you know our Tim Riley is featured in the November issue of Singing News magazine? In honor of Veteran’s Day, Tim was featured along with Les Beasley (retired member of the Florida Boys) and Ray Dean Reese (Kingsmen). These three men served our nation in the Armed Forces. Tim shared about his days in Vietnam. There’s even an old photo of his days with the Dixie Echoes. A must-read!!

DANNY’S FAVORITE QUOTE OF THE WEEK
