I have met sooo many country stars but never got the pleasure of meeting Vern. I love all his music. He's always had a special place in my heart. I have checked everywhere to see if I can find a tour of his near WV. and can't find a thing. Do you have any info? To meet him in person has been a dream of mine for years.
>>By Patty (Tuesday, 26 Nov 2002 06:48)
Vern doesn't tour very much anymore. He has a few concerts this year, though none in WV. If you'll contact me at email@example.com , I'll put you on our mailing list for upcoming shows. I also have info regarding fan club and merchandise.

I have been a Vern Gosdin fan for over 20 Years. He is
unique, and nobody sounds like him. I would LOVE
to get to see him in concert!!!

Vern is really good but they need to get more of music out in stores and get better and more advertisements. They are really good what he does have

Is Vern Still alive. He is one of my favorite artists. Will he ever come to Billy Bobs again, or anywhere around the Dallas area? He would fit in so well at Southern Junction in Rockwall. My uncle sure would love to see him.

Country music has it's greats, Hank Williams, George Jones, and Vern Gosdin. There has never been a more soulfull, emotional, heart wrenching sound ever recorded than that of Vern. His songs take me to the places I know he has been. You can't help but share the heart ache and pain or tap your foot to the up tempo stuff. There will never be anything that will match "Is it Raining" , "Set 'em up Joe", "Chiseled in Stone", and the list goes on. I wish todays so called country artists would take some lessons from the master. This country music fan is starving for more Vern. Thanks for sharing the gift of your music.

Vern Gosdin is an amazing singer. "The Voice of Country Music" It never gets tiring to listen to a good Vern song which would be anything that he has ever recorded. Their are many of his songs that I love but my favorites are "Chisled in Stone" "If you're going to Do it Wrong Do it Right" and "Do You Believe Me" E-Mail me if you want my address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I am 19 years old.

Vern is the only singer that I want to see in concert....but finding a tour schedule is proving difficult...Can anyone help??
The song "DREAM OF ME" is one of the best of all time.

Im trying to find some information about any up coming shows he will be having in Tenn. One of my very favorite people thinks the world of this singer and I would love to get him tickets to his show.

I saw and heard Vern on the program Austin City limits 15 years ago.
I have a video on him and he is one of my best country singers I enjoy listening to. He is a singer with a fantastic voice.

Does somebody know when will be the next Vern Gosdin concert and where???????
>>By gancho (Thursday, 20 Mar 2003 03:51)
I've always been a big fan of Vern and finally got to see him. He performed at the Middle Creek Opry in Louisburg, KS on April 5, 2003, but what a disappointment. He was drunk and couldn't remember the words and staggered around stage and knocked the mic stand over. He was promoting a young lady named Alicia Kay who will release her first CD soon and I felt sorry for her. You could tell she was very embarrassed by his behavior. I've seen Hank Williams, Jr. do the same thing before and George Jones is famous for it but I never expected that from Vern Gosdin. I was truly disappointed.
>>By Mike Giebler (Sunday, 6 Apr 2003 17:56)
I want to say to the folks who like Vern , he is one of the last real country singers. Vern is outstanding entertainer in his field of country music, and I also want to address the writer Mike Giebler, if you had been through what this gentleman has been through I don't think you would even come out side your house. This man traveled many miles with no sleep to give you enjoyment and you can't even say thank you. Alicia Kay was embarrassed but it was by you not him. She is my grandaughter so I feel I know better than you. I feel very honored to have had the privileged to meet Mr. Gosdin and am sorry you didn't.
>>By Fred Sweany (Tuesday, 8 Apr 2003 01:51)
To Mr. Fred Sweaney; I guess you are more tolerant than I am. I understand Vern has had a lot going on in his life but getting onstage drunk is no excuse. I drink, but I wouldn't show up at my job in that condition. People paid to see a talented, legendary singer and I don't feel they got what they paid for. As for Alicia being embarrassed by me, no, I'm not one of the folks who were making rude comments. I kept my mouth shut during the performance. I still love Vern's music and will continue to listen to it but if that's how he is during live performances, then I'll pass on future shows. Your granddaughter is a very talented singer and I enjoyed her very much and wish her well in her music career.
>>By Mike Giebler (Tuesday, 8 Apr 2003 03:16)
To Mike Giebler...Just wanted you to know that Vern Gosdin was not drunk at his performance Saturday night at the Middle Creek Opry. He has had 3 strokes, heart surgery and a knee replacement recently. I can understand why some people thought he was drunk, but I am reasonably sure he was not. I talked to him after the first show and he signed the CD we bought. He had taken his glasses off by then and he looked good. He was steady when he wrote his name and I asked him to pose for a picture with Alicia who is my step-grandaughter. He did not seem to be drunk to me. I believe his health problems are the reason he was having trouble. We are just very gratefull for his interest in helping Alicia and wish him the best.
>>By Janie Sweany (Tuesday, 8 Apr 2003 06:45)
Just want to add some information about Vern and to correct something I wrote previously. First, I was wrong about the number of strokes he has had...he has only had 2 instead of 3. Still believe he put on a great show considering what he has been through. I would go back to see him tomorrow if I could. Also, I just talked to Alicias' dad who had been to see Vern over the weekend and Vern has not had a drink in 10 years. So, all you people who thought he was drunk, try not to judge people until you know the facts.
>>By Janie Sweany (Tuesday, 8 Apr 2003 20:34)
If what the Sweany's are saying is true, then I'll admit I was wrong. I knew about Vern's heart surgery but was not aware of his strokes. I can understand how a stroke can make a person act differently. But I, and others as well, couldn't help noticing the looks on Alicia's and the band members faces after some comments Vern made. But I'm not here to get into an online argument with anyone. If Vern was drunk, well, it's done and overwith. If I'm wrong, then I apologize. Regardless, I'm still a Vern Gosdin fan and always will be.
>>By Mike Giebler (Wednesday, 9 Apr 2003 02:41)
To Mike Giebler ... Glad you are still a Vern Gosdin fan. From what I hear, the second show went off without a hitch. As for Alicia being embarrased, she is kind of quiet when she is not singing and never has a lot to say on stage. By the way, I meant to thank you for the good things you had to say about her...thanks, we appreciate it. Vern has been kind enough to take her under his wing and help her with her singing carreer so we felt we had to come to his defense. She has sung with him in Mississipi and Nashville, so she is used to him making remarks on stage. She did say she was upset at the way people were treating him.
>>By Janie Sweany (Wednesday, 9 Apr 2003 07:02)
I hope Vern Will come back to kansas city someday. But if he does'nt I can't blame him. The way some people chose to act on Saturday night I believed was typical of fans of other types of music, not country music. Vern has to be one of the top 5 country music singers of all time. He has never been anything but respectful to country music and the fans of country music. Hopefully, the false comments and rumors from people at the show Saturday night in Kansas will not cause country music fans to think anything less of Vern. He has done as much for country music as anybody. When I hear a song I like for it to tug at your heart and no one does that better than Vern!!!! Thank you for a great show Vern. My wife and I would come and watch one of your concerts once a week if we could.

I would like to address the statements made by the man who decided to take cheap shorts at a very wonderful man how has given many years to everyone everywhere who loves country music. I can personally acknowledge that Vern was not drunk. I had the honor of being Vern's steel quitar player for three years. I moved to Nashville to fullfill my childhood dream of playing the opry. After being in town three or four months Very Gosdin asked me to audition for his band. I was accepted into the fold and toured with him all over the country. I also had the honor of playing the opry with this great man many times. I was in his private home on numerours occassions with my wife enjoying his company. I have witnessed him ignoring doctors orders and doing a concert 9 days after a stroke. He has always put his fans first. He nicknamed me Engine. This was his way for befriending me because I am a Creek Indian from Oklahoma. Doug Stone picked me up after Vern had one of his strokes and slowed down. Doug called me Chief. He knew Vern had already set the stage for indian nicknames. Everyone that reads this need to understand that Vern did not deserve those comments and I will always be grateful to the man who gave me the opportunity to be in his presense and the honor to perform with such a legend.
Thanks for all the memories.
Love to Vern
From Steve and Brenda better known as Engine and Sqaw

I would realy like to see vern come to my hometown of Altoona Pa. I would love to hear him sing live in consert. He is truley the corner stone of country music......The VOISE! The song Is it raining has always brought a tear to my eye along with thousands of other people who know truley a grate country Voise. I wish Vern would come to the Brice Jordon Center in State Collage Pa, your fan Steve.

I met my husband in April 1988. He asked me to marry him on our first date. I said, "Yes" and never looked back. He died on February 11, 2001, after our being married a little over one year. I mention all this because Mr. Gosdin most accurately expressed how I felt so many times in my life, as in "This Ain't My First Rodeo" and you can take it from there. When Doug died, Mr. Gosdin hit me right between the eyes with a 2-by-4 called "Chiseled in Stone". Listening to his albums, Mr. Gosdin always seemed to know exactly what I was feeling and he expressed it far more eloquently than I ever could, helping me get through some pretty rough times. (I sometimes felt he was following me around!) As for the stuff I am reading here, some of it, I have to say that I owe Mr. Gosdin, big-time, and I would forgive him for anything he wanted. I am 63 now and if I can cut some slack, you kids can. Please.

My wife and I have always been a fan of Vern's great music. We particularly like his gospel songs. We are saddened to hear of his health problems. What is his condition today?
I am a first time visitor to this site and have not read all the information.
>>By Ken Newton (Monday, 21 Apr 2003 23:17)
I too am a first time visitor, but am soooo excited to finally find
something about the great Vern Gosdin. His voice has spoken
to me for years now and I've always reserved a special place
in my heart for him. Like others here, I'm saddened that he's
been ill, but hopeful that by contacting the website mentioned
above I will be able to travel to one of his concerts.
