Family and friends of Les Butler are asking for prayer after he was admitted to Stonecrest Medical Center in Smyrna, TN on Nov. 22 for COVID-19 and pneumonia.
Les has been a part of Southern Gospel Music for more than four decades. He’s a musician, producer and manager. He is also a former publisher of the Singing News Magazine and hosts a nationally syndicated radio program. The radio show isn’t the only place where you’ve heard his voice. Les is a member of The Old Time Preacher’s Quartet.
Les posted an open letter to his Facebook page Wednesday. In it he said he’s happy to have had “great worship services” while at the hospital. He’s been studying the Bible, reading books and watching Gospel music videos.
Les’ wife has also tested positive. He said this is the first Thanksgiving the couple has been apart in the past 40 years.
