Mark Lowry and The Martins
Date(s): Mar 06, 2015
When: 7:30 pm
Where: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

Tickets:  $20, $25, $30

It's been talked about for years and is now finally come to pass. Gospel music legends Mark Lowry and The Martins will hit the road together with their Music & Madness Tour.  The history between Mark and sibling trio Joyce, Jonathan and Judy Martin spans more than two decades and can be traced back to a cassette tape The Martins gave him at a national convention in 1992.  Mark and fellow Gaither Vocal Band-mate Michael English were so impressed, they insisted Gloria Gaither listen to an impromptu audition of the group.   Gloria then told husband Bill and the rest is history as the Gaithers helped introduce The Martins to the world.
