A couple weeks back, we had the opportunity to take a road trip to see the Old Paths in concert - twice! They had concerts scheduled at churches within a half or so of our hotel for Sunday morning and evening, so we made plans to stay around for both concerts. The morning service was at Grace Community Church in Liberty, IN, and the evening service was at First Southern Baptist in Camden, OH. Both churches were most welcoming to all in attendance, so make sure to stop by if you go through the area! As most of our readers probably know, founding member and baritone singer Doug Roark has been out recovering from heart surgery, and Jeremy Chupp has been filling in for him. We've met Jeremy before, but this was our first time to actually hear him sing. While we missed Doug and can't wait for him to be back on the road, Jeremy did an amazing job filling in on the baritone part! As always, Dan did a fantastic job on the saxophone, captivating the audience from the first note.
One of my favorite moments from the day was the closing song for the concerts, Midnight Cry. This is a classic Gospel song that is usually associated with Gold City, but ever since hearing the Old Paths' rendition, I can't stop listening to them sing it! Tim is, of course, a powerful singer and he gives this song everything. It's a wonderful way to close a concert out, reminding us as believers that we will be leaving this world very soon to be with our Savior in heaven!
