The free show will be preceded by a donation dinner to benefit SpiritHorse Therapeutic Riding. The dinner starts at 5:30 p.m.
“Robby Hopkins is a rising star and the real deal,” said Will Nichols, producer of the weekly events. “Besides being an excellent vocalist and a creative songwriter, he and his band put on a great show. Their exciting blend of hard-driving country and country gospel make this a concert not to miss.”
Hailing from LaFayette, Ga., Hopkins learned to play guitar at age 8, and wrote his first song at 16. Last year he and his band played the Riverbend Festival, opened for American Idol’s Lauren Alaina, opened for country star Randy Houser and cut their first CD, “How’d We End Up Here.”
“They did all of that in addition to performing at churches and venues all over the area,” said Nichols. “Plus, they helped raise more than $35,000 for the Forgotten Child Fund, a charity that delivers toys to needy children on Christmas Eve.”
Also appearing on the Jubilee is award-winning singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett, Southern Gospel singer Amy McAlister, the multitalented Danny O’Boyle and the Cowboy Church Band and Chorale. Nichols, known as “The Gospel Gun,” is host and announcer.
The Cowboy Gospel Jubilee is held at the Cleveland Cowboy Church in the Dockery Heights community at 3040 Blythe Road, off Dockery Lane, between Blue Springs and Blackburn Roads. Admission is free and a love offering is taken.
