LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. — Regardless of where his career would take him, Jim Brady knew he would always be a Booth Brother.

And after some unexpected turns in The Booth Brothers’ road of ministry, he found himself right back where he’d become a household name in gospel music.

“The first time I was here, I spent 13 years with The Booth Brothers and I love the guys,” Brady remembers. “So it was a bittersweet thing because I loved being with The Booth Brothers and had a wonderful time. There were no issues or fights or anything. There was no reason why we would leave other than God was leading me into a new ministry with my wife. 

“So one of the things they said to me then was, ‘Once a Booth Brother, always a Booth Brother.’”

Stepping out in obedience

Booth Brothers’ Buddy Mullins believes God leads his ministries sharing the hope of Jesus Christ

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. – Buddy Mullins could only when Michael Booth called to tell him the latest news.

It was early in 2021 when Michael told Buddy that his older brother, Ronnie Booth, was retiring from traveling with The Booth Brothers. “I actually laughed,” Mullins said less than an hour before taking the stage at Sand Spring Baptist Church on May 26. “I thought Michael was teasing. I was like, ‘Really?’ Michael, you know, can be kind of dry with his sense of humor.””

This was one time Michael Booth really was being serious and he was reaching out to Buddy to fill Ronnie’s spot in the trio’s lineup. Buddy didn’t say yes. He didn’t say no. He just turned it over to God and is now convinced that manning that unexpected opening is exactly where he’s supposed to be.

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. – When The Booth Brothers take the stage, you just know there will be countless smiles in the audience.

You know those smooth distinctive harmonies will be presenting the gospel in a way designed to uplift the hurting and challenge the church. And you know that Jesus will be glorified with every note sung.

And you know there will be much laughter. How can anyone not hit the chuckle button with Michael Booth up to his on-stage antics? Predictably, the words “he ain’t right” were uttered from the stage and in the crowd when The Booth Brothers sang to a nearly packed house at Sand Spring Baptist Church on May 26.

Gerald Wolfe Hymn Sing a night of hearty worship, remembering the past and being challenged to ministry

COLD SPRING, Ky. — It’s not often that I can’t describe something I have witnessed or experienced.

More than 30 years sitting behind keyboards and telling stories will do that, you know. There’s not much I haven’t seen, haven’t heard or haven’t written about. That covers just about all ends of the spectrum.

And I can assure you there’s not much that takes my breath away anymore.

Friday night, I attended the Gerald Wolfe Gospel Music Hymn Sing at First Baptist Church of Cold Spring. I’m still breathing, but was almost speechless when things ended a little after 9 p.m.
