A packed house of hallelujahs among an amen choir of believers heralds Diane and Mildred’s forthcoming 10th annual Gospel Music Arts Celebration. Contribute to the praise on Sept. 24 at Shiloh Free Will Baptist Church on Benhams Road in Bristol, Virginia. Gospel music acts from bluegrass and country persuasions aim to rock the church. They include Abingdon’s Holston River Boys. Clintwood’s New Harvest Brothers. Then there’s Bob Smallwood and his wife Laurie. Add the music of McKoy and Statzer, who bill themselves as Diane and Mildred. They keep their gospel music simple, their lyrics straightforward, and the message smack dab in the middle of God’s word.

“Gospel Music Arts exists to help preserve Grassroots Gospel music, with its hearty sound and acoustical musical instruments, and to provide a platform for like-minded musicians who are passionate for this style of music and its power to inspire, encourage, and transform lives.”
