The Beelers, one of the fastest growing family groups in Gospel music today, recently performed at the World’s Largest Chicken Festival in Laurel County, KY. This may be the most peculiar event that the Beelers have ever performed, but it was one of the most enjoyable.
Lead singer Cory Beeler states ”It was a fun day of singing and a whole lot of eating chicken, but we were still afforded the opportunity to sing the Gospel to a crowd who wasn’t necessarily familiar with Gospel music”. The Beelers didn’t hold anything back as they presented the Gospel in song, and made new fans in the process.
Sharing the stage with the Beelers were artists like Nick Bruno, the Galloways, and Candy Christmas, sisters, Robin and Tina said “We were honored to share the stage with artist who always sing with everything in their heart”.
The Beelers recently signed an exclusive publicity agreement with AG Publicity. AGP President Deon Unthank said “We are proud to represent a group who is willing to step out of the box of traditional means to take the Gospel to the world”.
Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, is one of the most highly recognized figures in the world. Laurel County, Kentucky, located in the heart of the beautiful Daniel Boone National Forest, is proud to be the home of the Colonel’s first and original restaurant established in the 1940’s. Lee Cummings, co-founder of Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken, also began his career in 1952 with his uncle, Colonel Sanders, in Laurel County.
The Annual World Chicken Festival is a tribute to this heritage. We invite you to our international celebration the last full weekend of every September, in beautiful downtown London. All the “egg-citement” and entertainment for four fun filled day makes this one of Kentucky’s largest festivals.

Robin is the middle sibling whom God has blessed with incredible vocal and arranging abilities. Her talents also include piano and a comedy character they call “Sham”, who is so funny and will “keep you in stitches”! Husband, Steve, travels with the group as road manager/sound man.
Tina, the first born of The Beelers, is the mischievous one of the family, but also is the Rock! Because their mother died when Cory was just a young boy at the time, Tina not only assumed the role of “big sister”, but also became part Mother.
