First Friday Country Gospel ServiceI've been invited to sing two songs on the monthly First Fridays Country Gospel Service at New Life Community Church, 990 James Way, Pismo Beach. I'll be accompanied by the band, led by Greg Padgett, who remembers me from our Nashville days in the late '90s. Greg told me that more than 700 people attend these shows, so be sure to get there early for a good seat.  Although the actual service begins at 7:00 pm, the majority of people come at 6:00 pm to enjoy the band's hour-long pre-service concert of Classic Country, Bluegrass, Western, and Gospel music.
