For 45 years America's Favorite Mixed Group, the Perrys, have traveled across the United States sharing The Gospel of Jesus Christ through their Southern Gospel music. On Saturday evening, September 9, the award-winning group will share their music on stage at Spring Bayou Baptist Church.
The Perrys began their singing career in 1970 with Randy Perry and his sisters Debbie and Libbi. When the group expanded from a trio to a quartet, they gained Tracy Stuffle as their bass singer and Libbi and Tracy were then married in 1987.
Throughout the years, the Perrys have had numerous number one songs, have won nineteen Singing News Fan Awards, and received multiple GMA Dove Award nominations. The group has made multiple appearances on the Gaither Homecoming video series, as well as annual performances at major Christian music events.
Tracy and Libbi are some of the most recognized voices in Southern Gospel music. Other current members of the Perrys include lead singer Andrew Goldman, who has been recognized as one of Southern Gospel's leading young talents, baritone singer Troy Peach, and Tracy and Libbi's son, Jared Stuffle.
In January of 2013, Tracy Stuffle suffered a massive stroke and spent much of the next year in the hospital. Through many prayers and support from their fans from all around, Tracy returned to the stage full time at the beginning of 2015, and according to their website biography, the group watches daily as God continues to answer prayer in healing Tracy and bringing him even closer to full restoration.
"God has been so good to Tracy and me," Libbi shared in a press release. "We have always had a desire to tell others about His grace and mercy through song, and He allows us to do this every week."
The Perrys concert will begin at 7 p.m. There will be no admission charge, but a love offering will be received. Spring Bayou Baptist Church is located at 11205 Woodville Road in Kevil, KY. For more information, call 270-462-3014.
