We’ve got a show jam-packed with gospel sounds set against a backdrop of fiery fields, unclouded days, and great speckled birds. Join us on our regular two hour Friday night show on KWTF as we take a trip down the country gospel highway, celebrating a style of music that was mostly inspired by the memories of ‘back home’ and the church, where a lot of our performers were first introduced to music. We’ll share that old time religion in spiritual and song from deep in the heartland. We open with some of the classic old time gospel sounds of The Carter Family and J. E. Mainer’s Mountaineer then go flying down heaven’s railway on the Gospel Cannonball while Johnny Cash, The Louvin Brothers, T. Texas Tyler, Hank Williams, and Kitty Wells will be preaching on that old country gospel stage alongside bluegrass gospel favorites from mid-century.And we'll also hear a couple of new tracks from Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives.
