Terry King and Friends in concert at the Palace Aug. 18

CROSSVILLE — Terry King has come back home to Cumberland County after 60 years in Cincinnati, OH. After he took a job at Crossville Ford he started looking for local musicians. That didn't take long with the number of great talents in Cumberland County.  

Terry King and Friends will present a great show with some of the best country entertainers and musicians in and around Cumberland County at the Palace Theater Aug. 18 at 7 p.m.

Some of the great musicians on the show are Luther Myers, Joyce and Chris Capps, Rob Baker, Jack Melling, Ed Lee, Bryan Rigney, Terri Ann Utsey, Carrie Hassler, and Wetwood Dalton.

Terry was playing good guitar at the age of 13 and playing professionally with bands by the age of 20. While serving in the Air Force in Tucson, AZ, he organized a band and played in surrounding cities.

After serving his country, Terry moved back to Cincinnati and worked in his own company during the day and played music seven nights a week. He has played with country music greats - Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others. Terry also played gospel music in Cincinnati churches and in Renfro Valley, KY with the gospel group, Roy Knipp and Southern Harmony.

After playing lead guitar for more than 40 years, Terry picked up the steel guitar seventeen years ago and has become a master player of this beautiful instrument.

King is the son of well known and popular Cumberland County musicians, Clayton (fiddle) and Mary Jane King (guitar). They lived in Linary and were known as the Lantana Ramblers and played for the many square dances that used to be held at the Cumberland Mountain State Park and also played at the Fairfield Glade Stables.

For an evening of some of the best music and entertainment in Cumberland County, join Terry King and Friends at the Palace Theater - Aug. 18 at 7 p.m.

Welcome home Terry! Life is good — selling fords and making music with four bands and friends!
