Gold City News and Audition Information

Gold City Quartet email newsletter of January 19, 2013:


We met some awesome people the past two weekends while on tour. Our first stop on January 12th was Fort Payne, AL at The Pickin’ Post with promoter Mike Owens. Take it from Gold City, the folks in Fort Payne know how to enjoy southern gospel music. We were greeted by a near capacity crowd and we had ourselves a time. From there, we traveled to Fairdale, KY and worshiped with the folks at Harvest Baptist Church, where we found a warm welcome by the friendly congregation on Sunday morning. To be honest, singing in the morning isn’t always the easiest thing to do, but the folks in Fairdale made that early morning wake-up call worth it.

Our final stop for the weekend was in Nashville, TN. We made our way to Tusculum Hills Baptist Church, where we capped off our trip with a Sunday evening concert for the great folks in Music City on January 13th. It was great to see Ken Harding and all the crew from our record company, NewHaven Records, our radio promoter Jan Puryear, Todd, Melinda, and Judy from the Beckie Simmons Agency, the company who books our dates. All these folks play a major role in what we do. More friends, Earl and Scharlene Galloway, came out to be with us for the evening.

This past Thursday night, January 17th, we were in Montgomery, Alabama at the Beacon of Hope Church of God. What a wonderful time we had there.

Then on Friday night, we were with one of gospel music’s best friends and promoters, Bill Bailey, in Fitzgerald, GA at the South Georgia Gospel Sing-Out. Joining Gold City was some of our favorite groups to work with on the road, Triumphant Quartet, Karen Peck and New River, and the Perrys. Obviously, that was a great evening just by the lineup of artists there--and yes, we had ourselves a time!

Saturday, we headed to Saraland, AL to sing for our friends at Wilson Avenue Baptist Church. Now, we're off to New Orleans where we will board a cruise ship for Cozumel, Jamaica and the Grand Caymen Islands as guests of KWFC Radio.

We’re excited to be aboard ship along with several other gospel artist including a reunion of the 1990's Christian Country band White River/Jubilation. God is already blessing Gold City in this first month of 2013 and we are excited to see what He has in store next.

It’s already nearing the end of January. Time is swiftly flying by. Make sure you take time to day to tell your family and friends how much you love them. Most of all, take every opportunity you have to share Jesus with someone. It could be the last opportunity you are given to be a witness for Him. Have a great week!
