Nashville, Tenn – The Isaacs are frequent performers at the Grand Ole Opry, but tonight takes on a very special meaning as they perform “The Three Bells” on the Opry stage. As a result of the success of the Isaacs re-recording of the song they have been asked to perform it tonight at the Opry as a tribute to Jim Ed Brown, who passed away just last Thursday, June 11th.
Very popular Gospel artists, The Isaacs, recently covered the classic Country tune “The Thee Bells” made popular by Country and Grand Ole Opry star Jim Ed Brown in the late 50s. The song has been a huge hit in the personal appearances of the Isaacs and especially at the Gaither Homecoming Concerts.
The Isaacs sang the time-honored hymn “It Is Well” at the Memorial service for Jim Ed Brown held at the Ryman Auditorium on Monday, June 15th. As covered by the newspaper, The Tennessean, other performers paying tribute to Mr. Brown included the Oak Ridge Boys, Vince Gill, the Gatlin Brothers, and Lady Antebellum, and others, along with several speakers who shared their memories.
Lily Isaacs stated, “It was a great honor to be a part of the home going service of our dear friend Jim Ed Brown . He will be missed by all. He was an amazing human being. We are grateful that we got to know him.”
