The Noblemen are one of the groups scheduled to appear at the Heartland Gospel Sing.

Some of the top Southern Gospel singing groups from Kentucky and surrounding states will be together for the Third Annual Heartland Sing on Saturday, Sept. 8 at New Hope Baptist Church, located at 3825 Tyrone Pike in Woodford County. The singing begins at 7 p.m.

There is no admission charge but a love offering will be taken for the homecoming-styled event.

Among the groups scheduled to take part include The Noblemen, the Commonwealth Quartet, Cumberland Thunder, the Blakeney Quartet, Jody Wheeler and Embraced by Grace from various towns across Kentucky.  The Believers, of Hendersonville, Tenn., are also scheduled to appear.

The groups simply join together to promote Southern Gospel music. “A lot of churches don’t sing many hymns anymore and a lot of older people are hungry for something like this,” says Garry Polston, of The Noblemen.

The groups will also come together to form a large choir to lead those in attendance in some old fashioned hymn singing. Polston says 65-100 people will be in the choir.

“We will all get together about 3:30 in the afternoon to practice,” Polston says. “The format of the singing is similar to the Gaither Homecomings.”

Polston says the singing is one of several held around the state through the year. The next will be on Oct. 27 at Memorial Methodist Church in Elizabethtown.
