The 2012 Duo of the Year, Jim Ricketts and Crystle Elam, are set to play the Cowboy Gospel Jubilee Friday at 7p.m.

“Jim and Crystle won this year’s North American Country Music Association award and are one of the best duos in Southern Gospel music,” said Will Nichols, producer of the free weekly music event.

“They have a terrific blend and their concert is loaded with a variety of great music.”

The singers, with several Jubilee appearances, are some of the most appreciated singers to headline the show. In addition, Ricketts and Elam each have successful solo careers.

“Jim has produced more than 25 albums and CDs during a singing career that started at the young age of nine,” said Nichols. “And Crystle had a hit song called ‘He Leads the Way.’

“There is no admission to the Jubilee and the public is invited. It’s a casual, come-as-you-are event,” continued Nichols. “And each week we give away some terrific door prizes. We are located between Blackburn Road and Blue Springs Road in the Dockery Heights subdivision.”

Also appearing are regulars, Southern Gospel singer Amy McAlister, the award-winning singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett, and the Cowboy Church Band and Chorale. Nichols, known as “The Gospel Gun” is the announcer and a crowd favorite.
