Gospel singer brings music and humor to Worland

 

November 1, 2017



WORLAND – Award-winning gospel musician and songwriter Ron Hughes will visit Worland on Saturday, bringing his 40-year experience on the stage to present a show unique to the area.

“Wyoming doesn’t have a big gospel thing” said Hughes, who has won three awards from the County Gospel Music Guild, including Artist of the Year for 2004.

“Down in the south, we have had a whole bunch of Top 10 gospel songs on gospel radio, but you don’t get much of that up here.”

Starting out as a teenager in rock and roll bands, and progressing into country music and playing “most of the bars and honky-tonks” in Wyoming, Hughes transitioned to gospel music after finding religion.

“I came from a musical family and I ventured into cowboy poetry and comedy, so it should be a real good, family show,” said Hughes.

When not touring as a solo act, Hughes performs with his Casper-based band, Sage Creek Gospel Band.

Hughes will perform Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Worland Seventh-day Adventist Church, 660 S. 17th St.

The performance is free and open to the public.
