Chuck Wagon Gang

The Chuck Wagon Gang with its brand of grassroots Gospel music comes to the historic Tift Theatre at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 9.  


Tickets are $12; children under eight are free.


The Chuck Wagon Gang has been circling the wagons on stages for 75 years, recording more than 800 songs and selling 40 million records worldwide. One of today's members is the granddaughter of an original member. They perform a variety of songs, including many of the originals, such as "The Church In The Wildwood," "Higher," "I'll Fly Away," "Echoes From The Burning Bush," "Heaven's Really Gonna Shine," "We Are Climbing," "I'll Meet You In The Morning," and "Looking For A City."


The purpose of the third generation of the Chuck Wagon Gang is not only to preserve and continue the grand legacy of the group but to be a relevant and viable ministry of the Gospel through song. While the music certainly has its entertainment value, the real impact is the spiritual message of hope and grace.

Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton formally reopens its renovated original buildings: Tift, Herring and Lewis Halls, along with restoring the historic mall and grand front lawn of the original campus from 105 years ago. 

Once again, Tift Hall, at the center of the three buildings, is home to the president's office and other administrative offices; Lewis Hall now houses the new Stafford School of Business; and Herring Hall has the admissions and human resources offices.

Tift Hall also includes historical displays of ABAC's storied past, with interesting photos and artifacts, as well as busts of Abraham Baldwin and Henry Harding Tift.
