Three Bridges Shares Stage with Jimmy Fortune at Violet Township Festival

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (August 17, 2010) – Christian music trio Three Bridges was honored to share the stage with Jimmy Fortune (formerly of the Statler Brothers) last month. The trio was the featured performer (along with Fortune) at the Violet Township Festival on Thursday, July 29, 2010. Both artists were a part of the Faith & Family Night at the annual festival, which takes place in Pickerington, Ohio every summer.

Shannon Smith of Three Bridges said, “It was an absolute honor to share the stage with Jimmy Fortune!  He is an amazing performer with some of the most pure tenor vocals I’ve ever heard, and he is an awesome guitar player as well. More importantly, his love for the Lord is so genuine and contagious.  I’m honored to call Jimmy my friend.”

Three Bridges’ Elliott McCoy also commented, “We had a blast performing at this festival and sharing the stage with one of Country music’s greatest performers! Being a featured performer alongside Jimmy Fortune was a wonderful experience for Three Bridges.”

Each artist performed for over an hour before sharing the stage together. Three Bridges and Jimmy performed several of Jimmy’s well-known songs together, such as “Elizabeth,” “More Than Just a Name On the Wall,” and “How Great Thou Art.”

Pictures from the event can be found on Three Bridges’ Facebook page.

Three Bridges has been preparing for the release of their highly anticipated new recording. The yet-to-be-titled new release will be the first to feature new members Shannon Smith and Jeremie Hudson.
