Gospel Venues

Tennessee’s deep musical roots start with that gospel sound that evolved into many different genres, including blues, soul, country and bluegrass. If you love gospel music, Tennessee is the place to hear it.

For a jolt of scintillating, soulful gospel, start in Memphis at the Full Gospel Tabernacle, the small Pentecostal church led by the most famous singing pastor in America, the Rev. Al Green.

When Green is not on tour singing his secular hits, hes front and center with the Tabernacle’s choir twice each Sunday. For more traditional southern gospel, take in the Triumphant Quartet live at the Miracle Theater in Pigeon Forge. Just down the road, inside Dollywood, you can visit the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum or, if youre there in October, hear renowned gospel groups like the Browns and the Kingdom Heirs performing at the National Gospel and Harvest Celebration. The Horse Creek Gospel Music Barn in tiny Chuckey is a great place for Southern and bluegrass gospel. If youre in the Nashville area, there is always a moving gospel performance on the calendar. Check out the Grand Ole Opry and other Nashville area venues to see whos coming. And anytime the Fisk Jubilee Singers are nearby, be sure to get in line for beautiful, soulful gospel from this world-famous group.
