“Band of the Year” Tim Chastain and Eight Days After will headline the Cowboy Gospel Jubilee’s special outdoor concert Friday at the Black Fox Equestrian Center.

The come-as-you-are event is free and open to the public. The festivities start at 6 p.m.

“Eight Days After has a distinctly Southern, twin electric guitar sound,” said Will Nichols, producer of the weekly music show. “They’re the best Christian band around and they very well may be the best band around, period.”

Comprised of Tim Chastain on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Will Arnold on lead guitar, Kyle Ridley on drums and Ricky Asher on bass, the two-time North American Country Music Association International’s Band of the Year hails from North Georgia. Greg Young is the band’s road manager.

The band’s name, “Eight Days After,” refers to the biblical account of Jesus revealing himself to “Doubting Thomas” and the other disciples in the upper room eight days after his initial post-resurrection appearance.

“All of the guys are exceptional musicians with years of experience,” said Nichols. “Their focus is spreading the message of Christ and their music is influenced by a wide range of gospel, country, blues, rock and Southern rock. This special outdoor Jubilee is a great opportunity to experience them up close and to visit one of the area’s premiere equestrian facilities.”

Also appearing is singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett, Southern Gospel singer Amy McAlister, and the Cowboy Church Band and Chorale.

Nichols, known as “The Gospel Gun,” is host and announcer.

The Black Fox Equestrian Center is located at 1223 Tunnel Hill Road, in the Black Fox community.

It is home to SpiritHorse at Blackfox, a nonprofit organization that provides equine therapy to mentally and physically challenged children.
