Charlie McCoy coming back to Cumberland County

CROSSVILLE — Charlie McCoy is coming back to Cumberland County, and for this trip, he is bringing his “Over the Hill Gang” from Nashville to rock the Fairfield Glade Conference Center walls – Glader style. McCoy sold out the Palace Theatre in May. If you missed that show, you definitely do not want to miss this one.

McCoy and the “gang” will perform here Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. The really important part is this will be a fundraiser for Fairfield Glade’s Volunteer Fire Department. All the proceeds will go toward Engine No. 5’s big retirement plans. No. 5 will have much more to say about this closer to Nov. 5.

McCoy has been an “A” list studio musician in Nashville for years, as have several in the “gang.” He plays multiple instruments, sings and performs in musical venues around the world.

A few of McCoy’s credits as a studio musician include playing on “Big Boss Man” and “High Heel Sneakers” (plus seven movie soundtracks) with Elvis Presley; “Candy Man” and “Blue Bayou” with Roy Orbison; “Orange Blossom Special” with Johnny Cash; “The Streak” with Ray Stevens; and Ringo Starr’s album “Beaucoups of Blues.” Others he has recorded with include Bob Dylan, George Jones, Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Bobby Vinton.

McCoy was voted CMA Instrumentalist of the Year in 1972 and 1973 and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2009. In 2007, he was inducted into the International Musicians Hall of Fame. McCoy was music director for the Hee Haw television series for 17 years and holds the enviable record of being the most recorded harmonica player in the world.

Tickets are on sale now at First National Bank in Peavine Rd., Village Veterinary Clinic, weekdays in Village Green Mall, Cumberland Eye Care, Fairfield Glade Conference Center, or by calling Judy or Jim at 484-3631. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. This could be another sell-out for Charlie and his “gang!” And No. 5 is counting on you to move him closer to retirement.
