Carman Sings With Conviction!

 carman's comical story and cancer song

CARMAN CONCERT - A HIT IN DOLLYWOOD!  This exciting show happened April 22, 2018!  It is part of the the new "Spring Mix"  Concert Series going on inside the Pigeon Forge theme park during its 2018 spring season.   This amazing contemporary christian artist is a man of many talents.  Over one-million souls has come to know Christ as Lord and Savior as a result of his ministry!"  His singing  has earned him both gold and platinum in record sales.  He has also starred in christian movies, and served as christian show host on the TBN Network.

Carman does a super-dynamic show!  I've attended several of his concerts and I must say I've been impressed with every one!   From big arenas to area churches, the Holy Spirit is always present!  His concerts have always offered variety that includes lots of singing, dancing,  dynamic video technology, and more.  It's a show that appeals to everyone.  

I've met Carman several times and I must say he's a really great guy!  Sure he enjoys laughing and joking onstage at times, but every time I meet him backstage, I experience that same dynamic, outgoing personally that is just naturally present when one has the joy of the Lord inside his heart!  He genuinely loves people and literally has a ball meeting his fans.  Especially children!

Carman was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2013.  He was given a time frame of  3 to 5 years to live.  Now in his 5th year, he underwent extensive testing in New York City just one week before his show in Dollywood.  As a result of prayer from family, friends, and fans around the world, Carman is now 100% cancer free.

Carman Smiles At Being Able To Perform In Dollywood

Carman performed three shows back to back inside of Dollywood's "Showstreet Theater."  These shows were different from other concerts I've seen him perform.  There was no dynamic lighting technology, no backup players, no videos, or dancers.  There was just CARMAN!  However, he himself was as dynamic as ever! He sang many of his greatest hits that everyone knew and loved.   He did some cute, funny ones, and told comical stories that had everyone rolling in the isles.  The audience became both competitive and excited as he turned tee shirts into balls for throwing into the crowd!  He managed a thirty minute break after each show to talk with fans and pose for photos.  The best part came with worship!  The entire theater was alive with the spirit of God as the audience raised their hands in praise of the almighty God.

It was amazing to see Carman for the first time in the Great Smoky Mountains area!  Perhaps he has taken away a very valuable lesson  about how NOT to become lost (see video at top) while driving those "back roads and hollows!"
