Southern Gospel Tidbits

DID YOU KNOW?:  Several years before the Kingdom Heirs were asked to be a resident performer at Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge TN, the Cumberland Boys started at the Opryland theme park in Nashville TN.  Their first two recordings were released as the Orpyland Gospel Quartet before the name change to the Cumberland Boys.  The Opryland theme park was closed in 1997 to make way for a shopping mall.
