CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS WITH CARL WHITE
By Doc Lawrence
|"We Wish You a Merry Christmas"|
Shelby is the city that gave the music world the king of the 5-sting banjo Earl Scruggs and Don Gibson, a songwriter-singer with few peers. Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Elvis and Patsy Cline and many others recorded his songs. The onstage program last Saturday featured a medley of Gibson’s hits including “I Can’t Stop Loving You.” The 90-minute show featured Bluegrass, Gospel, R&B and Jazz that combined to send everyone home feeling the warm spirit of the holiday season.
Here’s Carl White’s wonderfully entertaining “Old Fashioned Christmas” shown on FOX46 in Charlotte. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hx7LIKAYVko#t=745

The televised show at the Don Gibson Theatre is scheduled for Christmas week and you don’t want to miss it. It will trigger precious memories of Christmas past and help those who might feel a little down this time of year to lose those holiday blues.
