If you grew up in the rural south. You will remember the old tent camp meetings. In my youth, even living in East Knox County a few tents would pop up from time to time. I have found memories of the gospel music tent at the TVA&I fair. The tent was hosted by Knoxville christian radio station WKXV AM 900. Every night, multiple Southern Gospel groups would take the stage and all night worship would ensue.

I remember meeting Frank Treece of Cedar Ridge and Wes Waggoner there. Cedar Ridge was a special group anchored by Frank's wife Violet. Violet has gone on to her heavenly reward, her impact has been felt for many years to come.

This song by the Gaither Vocal Band and in particular Russ Taff, brought back some fond memories.
