Dinner & A Matinee - Celebrating Gospel
Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …
Churchgoer or not, if you’re looking for music to lift your spirits, it gets no better than this. Dr. Bobby Jones is a luminary in the gospel music world, serving for more than 30 years as one of its most recognizable public faces. Bobby Jones Gospel, one of the first programs to air on cable network BET at its launch in 1980, continues to bring up-and-coming gospel talent to a worldwide audience. On Jan. 18 and 19, the 28th Annual Stellar Awards will draw fans and stars alike to TPAC and Ryman Auditorium for one of the industrywide celebrations of achievement in gospel music. (The other is the GMA-sanctioned Dove Awards: Dr. Jones has won both, as well as a Grammy.) Consider this matinee show an after-party, with a gourmet meal and entertainment by Jones and his handpicked, internationally acclaimed Nashville Super Choir.
