Pigeon Forge TN (October 13, 2015) – The 2015 Creekside Gospel Music Convention will host a very special evening on Monday, November 2nd. Lou Wills Hildreth will honor Dr. Jerry Goff and the Singing Goffs during the four-day event at Pigeon Forge TN, November 2nd through 5th, 2015.
Jerry and the Singing Goffs were well known for their great singing, songs that still are being sung today, and the communication excellence of Dr. Jerry Goff. One of best-known lineups was Jerry Goff, Tank Tackett and Bill Dykes. Other members included Barry Hess, Gary Buckles, Art Ross, Wally Goff, Bobby Howard, Gary Valentine, Dave Thomas, David Harvell, Dave Rowland, David Hoskins and Gene Jones, among others.They had several hits including “I’ll See You In The Rapture,” “Please Search The Book Again” and “I Am Blessed.” The most memorable part of their concerts was when Dr. Goff brought out his trumpet and thrilled the audience with his playing. Now it’s time to show our appreciation for his work in Southern Gospel music.
