Following the loving recreation of a vintage radio show that formed the core of 2021’s Radio Days, the Chuck Wagon Gang returns with Come Go With Me, a glistening new collection for Mountain Home Music that finds the present-day version of the legendary gospel group serving up equal portions of old songs and new — but all bearing the signature sound that has sustained the Gang for an unprecedented career that’s now lasted nearly 90 years.
USB drive contains two full albums "Radio Days" and "No Depression In Heaven: The Gospel Songs Of The Carter Family"
Includes If You believe, I've Been Changed, This Little Pilgrim, and 9 more.
Current owner, manager, and alto singer Shaye Smith is the granddaughter of original alto Anna (“Effie”) Carter and of Howard Gordon, who played deft and discreet electric and acoustic guitar for the Chuck Wagon Gang in the 1950s and ‘60s.
In today’s Chuck Wagon Gang, Smith is joined by long-time soprano Melissa Kemper, tenor Josh Garner, and guitarist Darrell Morris.
When farmer D.P. ‘Dad” Carter formed the group in 1935, with son, Ernest, and daughters Lola and Effie, he could not have conceived of PBS documentaries, or of fan letters from presidents. Dad was simply looking for a way to spread the good word, and a way to buy medicine for Effie, who was sick with pneumonia.
That story, and this music, has moved Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Charlie Daniels, and generations of gospel singers and open-eared listeners. For more than eighty years, the Chuck Wagon Gang has offered hope and harmony, faith and family.
