Singer/songwriter Squire Parsons, author of the powerful hit song “Sweet Beulah Land,” and a Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame inductee, will headline the Cowboy Gospel Jubilee this Friday at 7 p.m.

The show is free and open to the public.

“Squire Parsons is one of the most well-known and respected men in gospel music,” said Will Nichols, producer of the weekly music event. “He’s written multiple hit songs and won numerous awards — including Singing News’ “Song of the Year,” “Favorite Gospel Songwriter,” and “Favorite Gospel Singer.”

Formerly with the Kingsmen Quartet, Parsons has been in solo ministry since 1979 and has been a soloist for the likes of Dr. Billy Graham, Dr. Charles Stanley and the late Dr. Jerry Falwell. He is part of the popular “Gaither Homecoming Video” series and regularly performs on the “Singing at Sea” cruises.

In addition to the powerful hit “Sweet Beulah Land,” Parsons has penned songs such as “Master Of The Sea,” “Oh What A Moment,” “The Broken Rose,” and “I Go To The Rock.”

“Parsons will take the stage right around 7 p.m., but folks may want to come early to get a good seat,” continued Nichols. “So, we’ll provide some great music from our regulars starting around 6:30.”

Also appearing on the Jubilee is singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett, Amy McAlister, Emily Varnell, and the Cowboy Church Band and Chorale. Ron Upchurch is host and announcer for the event.

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 will be taken for Squire Parsons.
