McKamey’s to hold concert Saturday at PPC Cowboy Church in Santo

Special to the Index

If there is one word that describes The McKameys, it would be sincere.

Each member of this Southern Gospel singing group is sincere in their love for the Lord, sincere in their love for the music they sing, and sincere in their need to spread the Word to others through their music.

The McKamey’s will be performing at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Palo Pinto County Cowboy Church in Santo.

Organized as a trio of sisters – Dora, Peg and Carol McKamey -- in 1954, the group is in its fifth decade of spreading love and blessings through the music they sing. Even though there have been several changes in the group’s makeup, the wonderful harmonies, great songs and sheer joy of singing has never gone away. Whether they are performing “I’ve Made Up My Mind”, “Roll That Burden On Me,” “I Will Trust You Lord,” “Right On Time,” “Arise,” or earlier hits like “Who Put The Tears” or “God On The Mountain,” there is a light that shines through onstage and an energy that carries them through the night when they perform.

Dora actually started the group, which is based in Clinton, Tennessee. Since their father was a minister, the girls had grown up singing in church. One day Dora announced to her astonished sisters that they were going to sing with her in church the next Sunday as a trio! “She gathered us up in her kitchen, started singing and we each found our parts,” Peg explained. “We just thought we were gonna sing that one time, in her home church, but different people heard us and invited us to sing at their church or at revivals. Then out of town evangelists heard us at the revivals and invited us to come to their church and we started traveling to Florida and Indiana and Ohio, and that’s how it all started.”
