The Southern gospel group The Isaacs will perform during the Hendersonville’s first Hometown Jam of 2021 on Memorial Day in Hendersonville's Veterans Park.
The multi-Dove award winning group performs frequently on the Grand Ole Opry and is active members on the Gaither Homecoming Videos and Concert Series.
The concert, sponsored by the Hendersonville Parks Department and Sumner County Tourism, will take place on Field #3 in Veterans Park not far from a historical marker celebrating the Isaacs’ accomplishments.
The family was recognized with a Tennessee Music Pathways historical marker in December near the entrance to the Mary’s Magical Place playground in the park.
A statewide driving tour, the Pathways program is comprised of hundreds of landmarks across the state that highlight artists in seven genres of music: blues, bluegrass, country, gospel, soul, rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll.
Currently there are Tennessee Music Pathways markers in honor of Johnny Cash (at the former House of Cash, 700 East Main Street and Taylor Swift (in front of Kids Kingdom, also on Main Street).
The Memorial Day event will also honor local servicemen and women who have died in war with a video display. Residents are encouraged to send photos of loved ones they would like to see recognized during the service to email@example.com.
Around 1,000 free tickets will be available for the concert to allow for social distancing. Gilley says they’re going fast though with about half that number still available.
Gates will open at 12:30 p.m. on May 31 with the concert beginning at 2 p.m. Food trucks will also be available. Attendees are asked to bring their own seating. To reserve tickets, go to http://bit.ly/IsaacsHTJ.
