Friday (05/25/12), I decided to go to South Iredell High School in Troutman NC to see the Nelons. I had a chance to catch the group at the beginning of the month, but since they were so close to home, I figured why not? They performed a lot of the same songs from the other concert but turned in several power house a cappella numbers.
“Down To The River” and “Were You There” were absolutely flawless. Amber Thompson has become one of the top female vocalists in Southern Gospel music. Her performance on the last verse of an a cappella version of “Were You There” had the crowd on their feet. Amazing!
It was nice to hear Kelly on “Settled At The Cross” and the crowd loved the up tempo closer, “I’m Going Home With Jesus”. So, in honor of another good concert performance I feel like giving away some more free music. The first person to email (email@example.com) me the answer to the following trivia question will win a brand new, unopened copy of the Nelons new CD, Come On Home.
***Who was the first/only group to take the song “I’m Going Home With Jesus” to #1 on the Southern Gospel charts?***
UPDATE: Congratulations to Bradley for being the first to answer the McGruders as the correct answer to the trivia question. Consider this contest closed. Thanks everyone for participating and keep checking back because I plan to give away free music all summer.
