Mountain Hope

"Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet: praise Him with the psaltery and harp. Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise Him upon the loud cymbals: praise Him upon the high sounding cymbals." Psalm 150:3-5

I am beyond grateful to God to announce that two very special friends and I started a band called Mountain Hope! We are an acoustic band that performs Gospel, bluegrass, folk, and old-timey, classic country music, with some humor comedy relief thrown in. This is the music I was raised on. Many a family gathering was spent singing these songs, and they bring back so many precious memories to me. We aren't perfect, nor do we claim to be, but we all love the music so very much and are passionate about what we are doing. For me, Mountain Hope is a dear gift from God—the fulfillment of a lifelong dream that started way back when I started singing tenor on "Amazing Grace" with Mom and Dad in the car at the age of three. I have absolutely loved to sing ever since and to have the opportunity to do music with these two guys is a truly cherished gift for which I am eternally grateful.

Zach started a YouTube channel to keep up with our music, and if you would like to hear us and be notified when Zach uploads new content, please consider subscribing here! And please feel free to share our music with others. We would be most grateful for your support! 

To give you a sneak preview of what to expect, here is a video of us performing one of my all-time favorite songs ~ "My Tennessee Mountain Home" written by Dolly Parton. This song has always meant so much to me because even though I was not born in Tennessee, my Daddy was from Tennessee, and his love for the mountains and mountain music is such a huge part of my heritage and who I am and will always be. How I miss him! He would have loved being a part of what God is allowing Mountain Hope to do.

I hope you enjoy our music and it brings some downhome comfort your way!

Pat, Chuck, and Cheryl

 May God richly bless each one of you and meet your every need.

Much love, Cheryl
