“Stronger For It won the Most Promising Vocal Group award from the Georgia Country Gospel Music Association,” said Will Nichols, producer of the free weekly show.
“It’s exciting that they’re making their first appearance on the Jubilee.”
The trio, based out of Washington Avenue Baptist Church, is comprised of Rodney and Bonnie Wilson from Benton and Brittnee Lewis of Ooltewah. They have been singing together for more than eight years.
The group has appeared at numerous festival and annual sings such as the Singing Echoes Anniversary Singing, the Pumpkin Festival in Cartersville, Ga., the Cleveland Car Show, and State Rep. Eric Watson's Singing in the Park.
“There is no admission to the Jubilee and the public is invited. It’s a casual, come-as-you-are event,” said Nichols. “And each week we give away some terrific door prizes. We pass the hat for the band and to help with expenses.”
Regulars on the Jubilee include Southern Gospel singer Amy McAlister, singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett, and the Cowboy Church Band and Chorale. Nichols is the announcer and a crowd favorite.
The Cowboy Gospel Jubilee is held at the Cleveland Cowboy Church in the Dockery Heights community between Blue Springs and Blackburn Roads. The address is 3040 Blythe Road, Cleveland TN 37323.
