SILVER DOLLAR CITY'S DIAMOND JUBILEE
Silver Dollar City, an award-winning theme park in Branson, Missouri, has always had a deep connection to Southern Gospel music. Now, as they celebrate their 60th Anniversary, they are releasing a new album compiling songs from some of today's top artists. Choosing songs and artists to feature for this project was no easy task, as there is a deep well from which to draw. Silver Dollar City's President, Brad Thomas, says, "Silver Dollar City has featured countless Southern Gospel artists who have appeared within the regular daily operation, during music festivals, and during our fall and Christmas celebrations. In the days just prior to Labor Day 2006, Silver Dollar City kicked off the ‘Southern Gospel Picnic.' Due to the crowd sizes and passion of the fans, these days have become known as ‘Southern Gospel's 12 Biggest Days & Nights.'"
Brad enlisted the help of StowTown Records' Wayne Haun for the final selection of performers which includes Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Gold City, The Nelons, Jeff & Sheri Easter, The Collingsworth Family and many more. "The fantastic staff at Silver Dollar City has always advocated the advancement of Southern Gospel music," shares Haun. "There's nothing better than walking through the park with some delicious comfort food in hand and hearing this music fill the air. We are humbled to be a part of this celebration."
Thomas and his team have been looking forward to this milestone year. "As we celebrate Silver Dollar City's 60th birthday, we celebrate our past and our future. Our Southern Gospel roots run deep around here. For decades, ‘The City' has been a venue for live Southern Gospel music. Southern Gospel fans from all over the USA, and especially from all over America's heartland, travel to Branson to visit groups performing on our stages. In addition, every year and in every performance, we introduce some of our 2.2 million guests to groups they may have never seen or heard and, in some cases, to Southern Gospel music itself! Every day, and especially during this birthday/anniversary, we are thankful for God's leadership, guidance and blessings over all these years." Adds Thomas, "We had big plans to celebrate our 60th anniversary throughout the year, and certainly during this weekend. Though the pandemic delayed our plans, this we know: Our God IS bigger than this pandemic, we have brighter days ahead, and when this is over, we will celebrate! And through it all, we continue to give God the glory for who He is every day." Join the festivities with this special time for Silver Dollar City as you listen to great artists and songs on "Silver Dollar City's Diamond Jubilee" CD.
