After months of anticipation the 44th Annual Brumley Gospel Sing starts tomorrow. We wanted to share our preview that was highlighted in the Fort Leonard Wood Guidon.

‘Granddaddy of Gospel Sings’ Aug. 1-4 in Lebanon
Four days of southern gospel music by more than 30 different groups and artists from across the country will take place during the 44th annual Brumley Gospel Sing. The event is scheduled Aug. 1-4 at the Cowan Civic Center, 500 East Elm Street, in Lebanon.

Known as the “Granddaddy of All Gospel Sings” the Brumley Gospel Sing honors the late Albert E. Brumley, a world-renowned gospel songwriter and the author of  “I’ll Fly Away,” “Turn Your Radio On” and “He Set Me Free.” Organizers predict that attendance at the scheduled performances throughout the event will total more than 30,000.

For the second consecutive year, The Collingsworth Family will be one of the headliners at the event. This family group tours and performs together throughout the country as well as internationally. They are a favorite among southern gospel music lovers, as evidenced by ten Top 40 gospel hits, including “Fear Not Tomorrow,” “Bottom of the Barrel” and “I Know.” They are scheduled to perform twice on Aug. 2 — one morning show at 10 a.m. and an afternoon matinee at 1 p.m.
