B.E.S.T. Country and Gospel Music Show 2024 a success, say organizers


“A wonderful time was had on Saturday night the 30th of March when three bands played bluegrass, country and gospel music,” said Joan Dix, president of the Better Eminence Schools for Tomorrow, which held its annual music concert that day in the Eminence High School gym.

“Their music is toe-tapping good,” Dix declared. “It was the first time that Lonesome Road Bluegrass from Summersville came to play for our fundraiser. They were excellent!”

Lonesome Road was followed by the Bressler Cousins and The Haversticks, and the audience was treated with two selections from Taylor, Dr. Haverstick’s daughter, who has been an entertainer in Branson, Dix shared. Taylor was accompanied by the Bressler Cousins and The Haversticks band.

The evening’s musical performances wer closed out by The Baker Family. One of the band’s members, Trustin Baker, has played at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn. and he will play there again this summer, said Dix.

Master of Ceremonies Robert Medley returned again this year and the audience enjoyed his unique additions to introductions.

Gary and Tyson Alcorn provided the sound system as they’ve done for all of the B.E.S.T. music shows, to which Dix commented, “Good sound makes all the difference!

Each year, B.E.S.T. holds a door prize drawing. This years prize, provided by master carvers Cindy and Tom Dooley, was won by Haley Blackburn.

“Thanks to all who attended and all who supported our Eminence R-1 Schools with their generous donations!” said Dix.
