Nashville, TN (6/23/2021): GloryWay Quartet has asked for prayers for their longtime bass singer, Justin Sayger. He will be undergoing heart surgery today to replace a pacemaker and install new batteries in his defibrillator. The surgery is scheduled for 2 p.m. EST.
Justin has shared his powerful testimony across the nation. his birth mother was a severe drug addict and abandoned him at birth. He was adopted by incredible Christian parents who instilled a love of Southern Gospel into him at a young age. At seventeen years of age, Justin suffered a massive heart attack. Seeing God’s plan for his life, Justin has used his story to impact people everywhere he goes.
“We have been blessed to watch this young man minister across the nation. He loves people and loves what God allows him to do. We ask for prayer over Justin as he goes through this surgery and the recovery process,” stated Justin Crank, GloryWay Quartet.
GloryWay has been incredibly busy as of late with appearances at Dollywood, a full concert schedule and a taping for Daystar’s Gospel Music Showcase. Sayger is expected to rejoin their tour as soon as he has recovered from surgery.

Please be in prayer for Jeremy Peace of Led Letter Edition. Jeremy suffered a stroke in September of 2020. Doctors had since diagnosed him with Lupus.
Jeremy experienced additional symptoms recently. He was seen last week by doctors at Emory Hospital in Atlanta, where additional tests and blood work were performed. Doctors now think Jeremy may have Multiple Sclerosis. He is expected to begin seeing a neurologist at Emory in the coming weeks.
Southern and Country Gospel concerts have been no stranger to cancelations since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. I wish I could fill this page with a list of concerts and appearances but that’s not possible today.
The Amundruds appearances in June have been called off, but according to the group’s webpage July is still a go for the Lea Park Rodeo Grounds, Lea Park, Canada. The Chitans of Toronto do not have any scheduled performances listed on the group’s website. I scanned around the net tonight hoping to find concerts to report, but that didn’t happen. While the list of provinces easing restrictions is growing, there is still a long way to go.
If you know of a Southern Gospel or Country Gospel concert that is still scheduled and approved by local authorities, please let us know so we can post it here.

Triumphant Quartet was in route to a concert in Wisconsin on Saturday morning when their bus caught fire on I-39 just outside of Rockford, Illinois. Three local fire departments responded to the 4:15 a.m. blaze, but were unable to save the bus or trailer of Triumphant.
Bus driver, Jamie Bramlett was on alert and is credited for getting the bus pulled over and getting the group members, who were all asleep, off the bus. Authorities gave the group a ride to neighboring Rochelle, Illinois, where they secured additional transportation.
The guys arrived safely and performed in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin on Saturday evening. Hemphill Brothers Coach Company provided transportation home to Triumphant.
Group members have expressed their thanks for all the prayers and concern for them during this ordeal.
Triumphant posted this quote early Saturday in reporting the fire, “All my life You have been faithful, all my life You have been so so good. With every breath that I am able. I will sing of Goodness of God”
Congratulations are in order for Rodney and Regina Griffin. Their daughter, Riley, was married to Jadon Taylor over the weekend in an outdoor service on the Griffins’ farm complete with hay bale couches!
