Dixie Stampede then Ireland !?!

The story of how our  trip to Northern Ireland came about is so cool!  We were visiting the Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge TN last summer…  after the amazing show (our friend Jay Teter is one of the great hosts of the show, so we go quite often), we were leaving and heard some full Irish accented voices calling from the gift shop.. “Are you the Isaacs?”….  A group of gospel music fans from N. Ireland was visiting and recognized us as we were leaving. “ We love your music in Ireland and we want you to come sing for us next year!”  So….  We exchanged contact info, feeling grateful that we were recognized, and not really expecting it to lead to an actual tour here…  Sure enough, they followed through and arranged 3 concerts here, and 2 in Scotland (next weeks concerts)!  Ronnie Dawson, our promoter and his wife Carolyn are hosting us this week, and are doing a fantastic job. Once we got over the jet lag, and the initial detention at immigration, we have had a brilliant time!  The country side is so green, and beautiful!  Cant wait to see more, and share pics with you all… 

More soon…  Sonya
