“It’s particularly exciting that Cliff is making his first appearance on the Jubilee as a solo artist,” said Will Nichols, producer of the popular show.
“He’s always impressive as part of the Myles Howard Family. And, no doubt, he will be as a solo, too.”
Born and raised in Southern gospel music, Cliff was lead vocal spot for the award-winning SongMasters at the young age of 14. From there he became lead singer for the multiple award-winning Myles Howard Family — a job he continues to hold. But, branching out last year, Cliff released his first solo Christian album "One."
“Besides studio and performance work, Cliff is youth and associate pastor at Durkee Road Church here in Cleveland,” said Nichols. “He and his wife, Kassie, have two beautiful girls — Izabella and Addyson.”
There is no admission to the event and the public is invited.
It’s a casual, come-as-you-are evening. Door prizes are awarded each week and an offering is taken for the headliners.
Regulars on the Jubilee include singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett, Emily Varnell, “The Wild Man” Danny O’Boyle and the Cowboy Church Band and Chorale. Nichols, known as “The Gospel Gun,” 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.
The show features both Gospel and moral secular music performed in a variety of genres.
