Southern Gospel meets Country Spiritual June 19 Brownsville, TN (May 31, 2010): The West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center announces a free summer concert Saturday, June 19, on the porch of the Sleepy John Estes home. “Southern Gospel meets Country Spiritual” will begin at 6 p.m., and features the sounds of David Smith and George Parchman. Parchman, a Humboldt native who now lives in Jackson, best describes his music style as “ bluesy and witty, coupled with a spiritual overtone.” Attendees will recognize songs such as “In the Wake of a Hurricane” and “Steve.” Known locally as the Singing Fireﬁghter, Smith loves to sing the old southern gospel favorites like “How Great Thou Art” and “In the Garden,” mixed with more modern tunes such as “What Kinda Car.” “We invite everyone to come out, grab a picnic at one of the nearby restaurants and enjoy an evening on the grounds of the Center,” says Heritage Center Director Sonia Outlaw-Clark. The museums will be open during the event and each artist will be honored with a special display in the Center’s lobby. CDs will also be available for purchase. This event is one the entire family will enjoy. There will be some bleacher seating and attendees are also encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and blankets. Popcorn and drinks will also be available. For more information about the concert, contact Outlaw-Clark at 731-779-9000. The West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center is located at I-40 and Exit 56, behind McDonald’s, and features three museums. Visit the Center’s website at www.westtnheritage.com.

multitude of military tours, and earning numerous awards and recognitions such as being the 1990 recipient of the Cunningham Award as the Marine Aviator of the Year, Castellaw, who delivered sobering tales of the lives of two marine soldiers seemed like a perfect ﬁt for the program as speaker. “Clearly his story is one of the hometown boys who did good,” Dixon said. “A little boy from Crockett County
who could make it to the hall of the White House.” Castellaw’s tales were of one marine, who died in combat while in Vietnam and left Castellaw with the difﬁcult task of telling his family, and of another solider who became homeless after coming back, but still served as an important inspiration to another pregnant homeless woman. After Castellaw spoke, a special wreath was placed near the memorial.
