Event Description

Here’s your Special Invitation “Freemans To Appear in Cadiz”
On Saturday Night, November 23rd, 2013 the award winning southern gospel group, The Freemans will be making a stop in Cadiz KY for a night of great music at Pleasant Hill Pentecostal Church. The church in located at 15283 Linton Rd, Hwy. 164, Cadiz KY. The singing will begin at 7PM, with door opening one hour before the concert begins. “This will be the first visit for The Freemans at PHC,” says Pastor Allan Stokes, “we are super excited to have this group finally making a stop in Cadiz.” The church is no stranger to southern gospel concerts having hosted groups The Kingsmen, Dixie Melody Boys, The Wilburns, Rabbit Easter Band, and most recently hosted a benefit for Southern Gospel Music Associations four time favorite lead singer, Ernie Dawson and Heirline.
According to The Freemans website at www.the-freemans.com, history, experience and spiritual wisdom are three attributes that can be used to describe the foundation of the Freeman ministry. Deeply rooted with family, the Freemans experience spans 30+ years. From Darrell’s entrance at age 16 with his family’s group, the Pathways, to Chris’s award-winning teenage years with the Hinsons, the Freemans know the ins and outs of Southern Gospel music.
No doubt, Chris’s unique sound is the reason she was the youngest female artist ever to receive the coveted “Queen of Gospel Music” award two years in a row (’76, ’77) as voted by the readers of Singing News Magazine. In 1980, the lives of Darrel and Chris Freeman became one when they married on August 2nd. After singing with the Pathways for three years Darrell and Chris headed for Nashville and began the Freemans. Joe Freeman, Darrell’s cousin, soon joined them as the third part harmony, as well as their keyboard player. With this sound they have garnered tremendous growth and success.
In 1997, Darrell and Chris’s daughter, Misty, began playing acoustic guitar with the group on stage. Then in 1998, she began singing with them when they recorded Standing Out. In 2001, Misty recorded a solo project titled It’s All True. Her first single, What Judas Didn’t Know, quickly climbed the charts to become a top ten hit, as well as a top 40 hit for 2002 according to Singing News magazine. With her young, vibrant sound she is quickly broadening the base of Southern Gospel music. Caylon Freeman, Darrell and Chris’s youngest child, decided to join his family on the road full-time in 2002. He left public school for home school, and is now the drumming sound of the group.
Now in their 20th year, the Freemans, still do approximately 250 dates a year, and continue to experience tremendous success. With their current single “Voice in the Desert’ getting major air play, you can expect to hear a lot more from The Freemans. They pray that their ministry will continue to bless the lives of those they come in contact with. They truly are one of Southern Gospel music’s favorite families.
