New South Gospel
New South Gospel is a Southern gospel extravaganza full of all your favorite gospel hits as sung by Branson's best quartet, New South!
Combining your favorite oldies, gospel music, and country tunes, this two-hour show takes you from the early roots of Southern gospel to the upbeat and happy hits of today. You can't resist moving along to the beat as New South immortalizes these songs with their stunning four-part harmonies. These spiritual songs range from the Jordanaires, a group formed in 1947 in Springfield, Missouri, to the talented Bill Gaither, as well as more contemporary artists like the Oak Ridge Boys, Rascal Flatts, the Eagles, and more.
The quartet is joined by master pianist and former member of the Crownsmen Tracy Heaston, who amazes crowds with his signature flair on the piano, and the rest of the award-winning Grand Band. The show also welcomes Jackie Brown and Jim Dandy to the show for individual gospel numbers, and the combination of these fantastic artists gives audiences a show full of inspiring hymns, heart wrenching lyrics, and a happy beat.
The band New South was formed in 2003 by members Jason Robinson (lead singer), Mark McCauley (bass), David Price (baritone), and Jonny Drockleman (tenor), and they have been the headlining group for the award-winning Grand Jubilee. In 2010, the quartet opened the New South Gospel show, and their latest album One More River to Cross was released in March 2012.
Join the New South Gospel show for a fun, fast-paced performance that takes you on a fantastic journey through the history of gospel music with talented harmonies.
