The Isaacs recently covered the classic country tune made popular by Brown in the late '50s. The song has been a huge hit in the personal appearances of the Isaacs and especially at the Gaither Homecoming Concerts.
They also sang the time-honored hymn "It Is Well” at the memorial service for Jim Ed Brown held at the Ryman Auditorium on Monday, June 15th. Other performers paying tribute to Mr. Brown included the Oak Ridge Boys, Vince Gill, the Gatlin Brothers, and Lady Antebellum, and others, along with several speakers who shared their memories.
Lily Isaacs says, "It was a great honor to be a part of the homegoing service of our dear friend, Jim Ed Brown. He will be missed by all. He was an amazing human being. We are grateful that we got to know him."
