Gospel-folk duo Crosby Lane will perform during the 10:45 a.m. worship service on Sept. 16 at Krum First United Methodist Church.
Crosby Lane blends the talents of John and Michaela Lemonis, a Nashville husband and wife act that concocts a musical brew from old hymns, gospel country and folk. Lemonis, a Mississippi native, has earned Dove Award, SGMA and Diamond Award nominations for his songwriting. His work has been recorded by Joy Williams (the Civil Wars), Point of Grace, Michael W. Smith, Cherie Adams (Avalon), Barbara Fairchild, Mark Harris, Brian Free & Assurance, and other artists in Gospel, Christian, Country, Pop, Print/Choral, and children’s music.
Alaska native Michaela Lemonis has music in her DNA. Her great uncle, Fluke Holland played drums with Johnny Cash for forty years. He was also the drummer for the Million Dollar Quartet recording which featured Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins. Michaela’s love for folk music shapes her unique contribution to the group, including playing mandolin and guitar. She’s a multiple instrumentalist and singer, bringing a touch of church choir soprano to John’s lead vocals.
Together, Crosby Lane has produced three albums:
The duo will perform songs and tell their stories at the Krum church while on their Black Top Revival Tour. A love offering will be collected.
