Dual headliners Bob Corley and Common Ground Bluegrass will perform the free Cowboy Gospel Jubilee Friday evening at 7.

“Bob Corley is a sure-enough cowboy with a new CD who is charting in Great Britain,” said Will Nichols, producer of the Jubilee. “And Common Ground Bluegrass is a brand new band that is generating a lot of buzz right now.”

Corley spent more than 15 years entertaining crowds by riding bucking horses in the rodeo ring and singing country and Western music outside the arena. His first CD, “Lucky ‘Ol Me” is a rich taste of life filled with love, cattle, horses, and everything that is country.

Common Ground Bluegrass from North Georgia is a new, four-piece band that sings and plays hard-driving traditional bluegrass and features 11-year-old mandolin phenom Harrison Watkins. On guitar is lead singer Matthew Evans and on upright bass is James Evans. Harrison’s dad, Lonnie Watkins, plays banjo and sings.

“This is bound to be one of the best Cowboy Gospel Jubilees ever,” said Nichols. “It’s one you won’t want to miss.”

The Cowboy Gospel Jubilee is located at the Cleveland Cowboy Church between Blackburn Road and Blue Springs Road in the Dockery Heights subdivision. A love offering is taken for the headliners.
