Prestonwood’s own 500-voice choir joined the fun, adding background vocals to the weekend’s stellar lineup which included the Gaither Vocal Band, the Booth Brothers, the Isaacs, Lynda Randle, the Nelons, Karen Peck & New River, Charlotte Ritchie, Buddy Greene, Angela Primm and more.
In a recent Homecoming Magazine article, Bill Gaither reflected on his choice of Texas as the locale for this annual event. “Historically Texas has been a hot spot for gospel music, dating all the way back to the Stamps Music days in Dallas. A lot of people may consider Texas ‘the Wild West’ and a bit independent, but a lot of great art has originated in Texas, including a number of beloved Gaither Vocal Band members, including Guy Penrod, Mark Lowry and David Phelps. So we have a lot of friends and a lot of history in this great state, and they always come out with Texas-sized enthusiasm.”
With gorgeous weather all weekend, two grand evenings of uplifting music, and Homecoming family and friends all around, this year’s event truly was … well, spectacular! If you weren't able to make it this year, we hope you'll join in the fun next year!
