Inspirations Announce 50th Anniversary Celebration

Earlier this week, The Inspirations announced that this year’s July Singing in the Smokies will feature a lineup filled with past Inspirations members. 

The weekend lineup includes Archie Watkins and Smoky Mountain Reunion, Daron Osborne and Evidence of Grace, Chris Smith (the One Man Quartet), Baron Laws (son of Jack Laws), The McKameys (featuring former Inspirations guitarist Roger Fortner), The Troy Burns Family, and Mike Holcomb. The Inspirations’ announcement added: “Other former Inspirations have been invited, so if it fits into their schedule, you never know who might show up!”

Other artists appearing include Squire Parsons, The Dixie Echoes, and The Kingsmen. 

Mike Holcomb will do a devotion each morning at 10:00 A.M.

As in previous years, the event will be an outdoor event held at Inspiration Park in Bryson City, North Carolina.
