August 28, 2020 – The world-famous Blackwood Singers are traveling from their home in Branson, Mo to Kerrville for a one-of-a-kind concert of the Gospel Music their family has been singing for 86 years. This concert will be made even more special by the only on-stage appearance this year by Ron Blackwood, who will re-join his brother R.W. Jr., his partner in founding the original Blackwood Singers in 1969.
The Blackwood Singers appear throughout the year at the Americana Theater in Branson, where they bring hand-clapping, high energy entertainment to the stage. To quote a recent fan, “The show is American, family, loyalty and excellence all rolled into two hours that will leave you spellbound!”
The Blackwoods, now led by R.W. Jr. and his wife, Donna, are known throughout gospel music circles for their pure family harmony, excellent musicianship, and first class entertainment. Their show is a stroll down memory lane with history of the original Blackwood Brothers and the Blackwood Singers and the songs that made them a household name, made even more special this year by the rare visit to the stage by Rob Blackwood himself.
In all, the Blackwood Singers have been awarded eight Grammys, 27 Dove Awards, five All-American Music Awards, the Publishers Choice Diamond Award, and the coveted Living Legend Award in Gospel Music. In addition to all the accolades, the family has also performed with the likes of Johnny Cash and June Carter, Dolly Parton, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, and pop icons such as Frankie Avalon, Cher, and Sammy Davis, Jr.
