Chuck Wagon Gang welcomes Kelly Jennings

The Chuck Wagon Gang has annouced that their new alto singer will be Kelly Jennings, from Kingsport, TN. According to the group’s press release, she has been singing for 27 of her 29 years. She co-founded a group in her area, The Living Waters Trio.

She stated: “My love for gospel music has no boundaries, and I have had many musical influences in my life. I grew up listening to so many wonderful groups, including The Chuck Wagon Gang. I can remember driving to church many mornings as a child and my mom and dad turning on the radio. I’ll never forget that the station started out each morning with The Chuck Wagon Gang singing ‘I’ll Fly Away’. What an honor it was to receive a phone call from them for an audition. What an honor it is to now be a part of this legendary group that God has blessed for so many years! I’m looking forward to my new journey and I know that God has put me with some of the greatest people on earth.”

Her first concert with the group will be on September 22nd at Tony Gore’s Smoky Mountain Barbeque and Grill in Sevierville, TN. She is at the National Quartet Convention this year, and fans there can meet her at the group’s booth.
