The concert is free with admission an unwrapped toy to be donated to the Helping Hands organization. The show will be held at the Heart of Texas Events Center in Brady.

Multi Award Winning instrumentalist Buck Trent was a member of Porter W...agoner's "Wagon Masters" from 1962 to 1973, and also appeared on the Roy Clark Show and Hee Haw. Trent not only played live with the show, but also on Wagoner’s recordings as well as Pretty Miss Norm Jean helping to create their signature sound. He also played lead guitar on Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" and "Jolene". In 2012, Trent was featured on two songs on Marty Stuart's album, "Nashville, Vol. 1: Tear the Woodpile Down". Over his long history, Trent has received many awards and nominations. He was twice named the Country Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year (1975, 1976) and he was twice the No. 1 Instrumentalist of the Year for the Music City Awards. Included in his nominations are the 1976 No. 1 Instrumentalist of the Year for Record World, 1972 through 1981 No. 1 Instrumentalist for the Music City News Awards and in 1979-1981 Instrumental Group of the Year for the Music City News Awards.
In 1963, Norma Jean released her first single with RCA Victor, "Let's Go All the Way". She released an album of the same name which spawned two more Top 40 hits, "I'm a Walking Advertisement (For the Blues)" followed by "Put Your Arm Around Her." Because of the singles' success, she was invited to join the Grand Ole Opry.
In late 1965, she released an album titled, Pretty Miss Norma Jean (titled after how Wagoner frequently introduced her on his television show). The first single from the album, "Go Cat Go", became a Top 10 hit, peaking at number eight. Two more singles were released including "I Cried All the Way to the Bank," and "I Wouldn't Buy a Used Car From Him", making her one of the most popular female country singers of the era. She earned two Grammy nominations.
Norma Jean left Wagoner's show in 1967, and was replaced by newcomer Dolly Parton, who went on to become one of country music's leading female stars. Parton said later she had a hard time replacing Norma because she was so loved by country fans. After several years in Branson, Norma moved to Brady, Texas.
Kenny Parrott will be joining Trent and Norma Jean. Known as the “Voice of Branson”, Parrot was born in Burlington, Iowa, and has been playing guitar and singing since the age of 12. He has worked in Branson for over a decade with his own show and as part of the Buck Trent show.

The year was 1934. Brothers Roy, Doyle an...d James Blackwood, along with Roy’s son R.W., formed what was to become the most beloved and respected gospel group of all time, The Blackwood Brothers Quartet.
Bill Shaw and Bill Lyles eventually joined the group and together with James and R.W. Blackwood, this quartet went on to be featured on several TV shows including The Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters, the beloved American classic, Hee Haw and the prestigious Arthur Godfrey Talent Show in 1954.
A few weeks later, that same year in Clanton, Alabama, tragedy struck when two members of the group, R.W. Blackwood and Bill Lyles, were killed in a plane crash. After the accident, many fans and critics alike believed that the quartet would not be able to go forth. However, as fate would have it, R.W.’s youngest brother, Cecil Blackwood joined the group along with the bass singer, J.D. Sumner, silencing any doubts the public had about the quartet continuing to be a force in gospel music.
Despite the family tragedy, earlier that same month saw the birth of Cecil Blackwood’s son, Mark, who has held on to the tradition and sound that has made the Blackwood name world famous.
Mark joined his family in the Blackwood Brothers Quartet in 1986, where he sang lead for many years alongside his dad, Cecil and many other talented singers. Mark also worked as a producer on the Grammy award winning Blackwood Brothers albums of the early 1980s.
In 2012, Mark Blackwood formed the Blackwood Quartet. The group tours regularly and brings the word of Christ through song, to both believers and non-believers alike. The quartet has had the privilege of performing with Willie Nelson and many other great artists. Recently, the Blackwoods have seen their popularity grow among Elvis tribute artist fans, as well.
