No one has said anything about fishing, but I figure where there is a creek, there are fish! This will be a lot of fun.”

It’s a beautiful town tucked away in the Smoky Mountains and has always been a hot bed for great Southern Gospel and Christian Country music. I can’t wait to see so many of my friends in the music business be recognized for their talents and ministries!”
