Old-time Deep South gospel singing just doesn’t get any better than the Chuck Wagon Gang, whose angelic voices and patented family harmonies have their roots in hymns from the old brush arbor meetings and shape note hymnals.   The original members first sang for Bewley Flour Mills on WBAP in Fort Worth.  The greatest gospel composers of the era wrote for them, and their records of “God Put a Rainbow in the Cloud,” “I’ll Fly Away,” “I’ve Found a Hiding Place,” “When the Saints Go Marching In” and “A Beautiful Life” have immortalized the songs as well as the singers.  Original family members have all passed on, but today’s Chuck Wagon Gang is arguably the best that’s ever been. 
The CWG has visited other parts of Florida often in recent years, but this is the first time we’ve been able to invite them to Collier County.   They sing today the way they always have and their appeal always extends to bluegrass and traditional country music lovers.   If you love family-style singing, you owe it to yourself to see and hear them.  They represent old fashioned gospel singing today at its very best.
