This Saturday (Dec. 25), award-winning country group, The Gatlin Brothers, will celebrate their 45th anniversary as members of the Grand Ole Opry. The brothers–Larry, Steve, and Rudy–were officially inducted into the Opry family on Dec. 25, 1976.
“One of the very happiest days of our lives was 45 years ago, Christmas Day, when the folks at the Grand Ole Opry asked us to be members of their family,” explains Larry. “We are grateful and honored every time we walk on that stage. God Bless you all and Merry Christmas!”
The group recently celebrated the occasion while performing on a special Christmas edition of the Opry’s broadcast. Backstage, the Gatlins were presented with special Hatch Show Prints to commemorate their upcoming anniversary.
Love From Music City Hosts Christmas Party For Over 150 Middle TN Foster Children
Nashville-based organization Love From Music City recently hosted their 10th Annual event. “A Very Merry Music City Christmas” welcomed over 150 Sumner County foster children. This year’s event included live entertainment from country music artists Shane Owens and JD Shelburne, as well as carnival games and a visit from Santa.
The entire second floor of the building was transformed into a huge toy store where each child, ages 0-18, was able to choose five items of their choice. They also received eleven essential items, such as a new pillow, pillowcase, blanket, gloves, a coat, shoes, backpack, socks, toiletries, and a stuffed animal.
“Unfortunately, this December has brought some devastating life events. However, I can still say it is more blessed to give than receive,” shares CFO Shanda Tripp. “I found myself still filled with joy as I witnessed the children enjoying their amazing Christmas. Then knowing this was our 10th year made it even more special. Thank you to our community of donors and superstar volunteers, you are truly the best!”
“A Very Merry Music City Christmas” was made possible through funds received throughout the year and the Love From Music City’s annual gala which raised over $35,000 in donations.
