Guy Penrod performing at the Paramount

November 18, 2013

Breathe deep, isn’t that what everyone is doing right now? After a long hot summer, after all the depressing economic news, after getting the kids back in school, everyone is probably breathing a little deeper. What better way to celebrate and remember the good in our lives than to spend an evening with one of the premiere artists of today performing live on stage at the Paramount Center for the Arts on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 7PM. Guy Penrod is in every sense of the word a man cut from the cloth of rugged individualism. Never is it more evident than in his latest album consisting of thirteen new songs. The project, Breathe Deep, reflects a thumbprint of a man with strong values and a positive worldview that harkens back to deep roots in faith and family. His well publicized departure in recent months after 14 years as the centerpiece of Bill Gaither’s celebrated “Vocal Band” was not a move for the faint of heart — nor for a man less sure that he’s tracking on the right course set for new horizons. Never is it more evident than in this first solo country project. Tickets are on sale now at the Paramount Center for the Arts located at 518 State Street or the Viking Hall Civic Center Box Office at 1100 Edgemont Avenue. Tickets may be purchased on-line at E-Tix.com or by phone at the Paramount Box Office at (423) 274-8920 or at the Viking Hall Box Office at (423) 764-4171.

“The concert is just a few days before Thanksgiving and it is a great time to remember all the positive things we sometimes get busy and take for granted in our lives. His positive outlook is so contagious. Last time we hosted Guy in the Paramount, he performed to a packed house. Comments came in days after his show about what a great entertainer his was and how he drew his audience in,” said Darlene Cole, Venue Manager for the City.
