ST. GEORGE — The St. George Community Church welcomes the public to a free performance by country gospel recording artist Wade Hammond Saturday at 7 p.m. Hammond will be performing a full concert at the church Saturday, and will perform another full concert Sunday at Desert Rose Christian Church in Beaver Dam, Arizona.
Hammond is a Nashville recording artist/songwriter promoted by HMG Nashville. He has just released his 9th album called “Come Home, Country Blues Hymns.” His three-month “Come Home Tour” recently kicked off on the West Coast in California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona.
All are welcome to come enjoy the inspiring music of Hammond at the St. George Community Church, 95 S. 800 East, located directly across the street from Dixie State University.
You do not need tickets to attend this special concert.
Hammond has had many songs hit the charts, with two reaching the No. 1 spot on the Power Source Official Charts of the Inspirational Country Music Association. “Bitter Harvest” recorded by Hammond hit No. 1 on the July 2012 chart, with songwriters Eddie Burton and Tommy Dennis.
From Hammond’s website:
We each go through storms and they share how God delivered Kathy (Hammond’s wife) from depression through a song that Wade wrote, relying on the Lord for daily strength as Kathy lives with Multiple Sclerosis.
Now traveling a new journey called grief. July 30, 2007 while at work, Little Wade fell 28 feet through a skylight. But six weeks before he fell, Christ became real to him and he accepted Christ as his Savior.
The last song to his No. 1 credit is “I’ll Stand Up for the Cross,” recorded by Hammond and written by Avery Michaels, ranking on the March 2013 chart. In 2014 Hammond hit the Mainstream Country Charts at No. 12 with “She Loves Me Lord” written by Eddie Burton and Tommy Dennis.
According to his concert schedule, Hammond will also be performing a full concert in Beaver Dam, Arizona, Sunday at 10:30 a.m. MST (11:30 a.m. MDT), at Desert Rose Christian Church, 3261 Old Pioneer Road. The cost for that concert is also free.
