BSA books Guy Penrod solo concert

Come August, roughly a year after his departure from the Gaither Vocal Band, it looks like Guy Penrod will be on stage once more. The Beckie Simmons Agency has booked a Guy Penrod solo concert. The concert is August 30 in Branson, MO at the Music City Centre. More detail is at their concerts page.

It’s not clear yet whether the Beckie Simmons Agency will be booking all his dates, or whether they just set up this one.

  11. I didn’t mean an individual trying to tape it, I meant Guy!

  12. Cant keep a good man down! I am thrilled that Guy still involved in SG. He was a household name as a backup singer before Gaither and I still consider him one of the most talented voices to ever come along. His vocal range and the feeling he puts into every song make him one of a kind. Gaither was very blessed that Guy stayed as long as he did making the GVB what it is today. As good as Mike English, he will never replace the smoothness and blend that Guy brought to them. Kudos and much success to Mr. Penrod…..THE SOLOIST!!!!!!!!

  13. I just got our tickets!! Can’t wait for this…should be a wonderful concert.

  14. omw, he should come to Florida! i’d go all the way to miami to c him!!!

  15. Great! I love Guy!!! I miss him, be back soon Guy, the greatest singer on the earth, I’m waiting your first cd.

  16. Just found out on Gaither Community that Guy has another concert schedule for Aug. 4th n Arizona! He will be with Russ Taff, Kevin Williams and the Isaacs!

  17. Sorry, I need to make a correction, it’s not Arizona, it’s Rector, Arkansas. This is great news, he is about to back in circulation! If anyone has further news, please post!

  18. HI GUY,
    I AM HAPPY BEYOUND WORDS THAT YOU CAR COMING BACK AND IF I COULD I WOULD BE IN BRANSON TO HEAR YOU. BUY MY PRAYERS ARRE WITH YOU AS THEY ARE EVERYDAY AS YOU KNOW. bLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOU FAMILY MERLIN.

  19. HI GUY,
    I AM HAPPY BEYOUND WORDS THAT YOU ARE COMING BACK AND IF I COULD BE IN BRANSON I SURE WOULD. MY PRAYERS CONTINUE TO BE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY DAILY. BLESSINGS TO YOU AND ANGIE AND THE CHILDREN. MERLIN

    P S I REPEAT THIS NOTE BECAUSE I MESSED THE OTHER ONE UP SO BAD. WOW YOUR BACK.

  20. This is what I have been waiting for. I have really missed seeing and hearing Guy sing. He is one of the best as far as I am concerned.

  21. Hi Guy and Angie,
    All my love to you and I am so glad your going to come back. most of all be true to God, self and family and I know you will. you have a big family to put through High School and college and to feed so do what you must for all of you.Your praying bro. in South bend IN. Merlin

  22. I hope Guy Penrod comes back with the Gaithers. He is one of my favorites, and my great grandson, who is 4yrs old has been watching him on the videos in my collection, ane he loves Guy Penrod. My heart aches to know he isn’t with the Gaithers.

  23. Bit far for me to come from New Zealand 🙂 Love to see some more DVDs of him on stage. Go Guy go in Jesus name and spread the word with the talents he has given you and your family.

  24. Daniel, I received my Gaither HCing magazine today. There was a nice article regarding Marshall Hall. I was pleased w/how it was covered.

    There was not as much as using Guy’s name. GVB was referred to as a ‘former group’. I guess w/the obviously friendly coverage of Marsh I wonder why Guy is not, and has bearly been acknowledged since last fall. My question is, do we actually know that he resigned, and that he was not asked to leave? I would really like to know this answer if possible. I don’t mean to keep drudging this up, but I just really need to know that much. I am not asking why he left, just the answer to the above question. There is so much hostility on GC that it makes one wonder… . Thank you for your attention.

  25. GUY IS UNIQUE . . . BEST SINGER ON EARTH!! NO ONE LIKE HIM :). SO HAPPY HE WILL BE DOING SOLO CONCERTS.

  26. Gaithergirl, I also picked up the hostility at G-community toward Guy. Rather sad as Bill is a man of integrity.

  27. Guyfan, Wow, there have been changes just in the past couple of days at GC! The atitude has totally changed! Go to Penrod’s Group and see the changes!

  28. Can u post a link to the forum you are talking about gaithergirl please.

  29. Ian, Just google Gaither Community, join up and log onto Guy Penrod Fans. (I’d post a link if I had the faintest clue how to do that.) They are trying to make the site more fun and less controversial I think. It is very nice right now. There are alot of people at Gaither that love Guy and worry about this business that Gaithergirl and Guyfan are talking about. They try to shut us up about it, but guess what, we want to know. We love Guy and support him. Don’t care what the answer is, just want to know. Blessings, Judy

  30. Ian, I’m sorry, I don’t know how to do the link thing, but go to Gaithercommunity.com and click on groups. Scroll down till you find the Guy group. There are dozens of great pics now and it has become a very fun place to visit. You will enjoy!

  31. To Guyfan and gaithergirl; I am an 82 year old man and have been to a number of Gaither concerts as well as to individual solo concerts of sgm artists. I think you are trying to uncover a mystery that does not exist. I am sure Guy needs to be careful and protect that precious family and that is all there is to it. By casting suspicion it becomes rumor and is a gossip issue. Guy and his family do not need that from us who love the Lord. There is enough (idile talk) of that in secular circles.Psalm 141:3. God bless you Guy…..Stan

    • Guy has become a member on Gaither Community. Click on Members and his picture appears on the top line. His friends are growing in leaps and bounds. 144 yesterday and 177 this morning. If you ask to be his friend, you will get personal emails from him. So far I’ve gotten 2 in the last 3 days. He, Angie and all the kids are going to Arkansas for the concert.

  32. I can see the concert by guy penrod live????
    where?? please

    • I believe it wasn’t being streamed online.

  33. I attended the concert Sunday night, August 30, in Branson – it was absolutely awesome. Guy Penrod was fantastic his choice of songs were just great. It was great to see that his family was all with him and he and his wife and children sang a couple of songs together what a super night. You difinitely felt the presence of the Lord in the concert Sunday night. Thank you Guy Penrod for blessing each and every one in attendance.

  34. WOW! I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF GUY’S CONCERT IN BRANSON. HIS SONGS WERE FANTASTIC AND HIS STAGE PRESENCE WAS ABSOLUTELY WHAT WE HAVE ALL COME TO EXPECT FROM GUY. AT CONCERTS END HE GRACIOUSLY STOOD AND SIGNED ALBUM COVERS AND HAD HIS PICTURE MADE WITH EVERYONE WHO WANTED ONE. I DROVE 1000 MILES ROUND TRIP TO ATTEND AND WOULD DO IT AGAIN IN A HEART BEAT. WAY TO GO GUY!!!!!!
