Muletown In The Round Dec. 2nd (Wynn Varble/Gary Chapman/Dave Gibson)

Join us for a special “Muletown in the Round” session with host Wynn Varble and singer-songwriters Gary Chapman and Dave Gibson
It’s time for another round of singer-songwriters at Marcy Jo’s Muletown in Columbia, TN.
Born in Arkansas and raised in west Texas Dave Gibson learned to play guitar when he was thirteen. After college, he moved to Chicago to pursue a career as a commercial artist. Gibson worked several art jobs and taught school for a few years, all the while playing music at night and writing songs. He formed his own band, “Dave Gibson and Hackinbush,” creating one of the top acts in the Windy City for almost ten years until he decided to move to Nashville to pursue a career in music. Gibson arrived in Nashville in the early eighties and was soon discovered by legendary producer Tony Brown who took him in the studio and introduced him to “The Oak Ridge Boys” who gave him his first publishing deal. He also landed a record deal for his own group, “The Gibson/Miller Band” which won the ACM award for “best new group” in the early nineties. Gibson is known for writing songs such as “Jukebox in My Mind” (Alabama), “Don’t Give Candy to a Stranger” (Larry Boone), “Queen of Memphis” and “Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind” (Confederate Railroad), “Ships That Don’t Come In” (Joe Diffie), “High Rollin,'” “Texas Tattoo,” “Red, White, and Blue Collar,” and “Stone Cold Country” (Gibson/Miller Band), “Lonely and Gone” (Montgomery Gentry), “Do You Know Where Your Man Is” (Pam Tillis), “If It Don’t Come Easy” (Tanya Tucker), “House on Old Lonesome Road” (Conway Twitty), “Midnight Fire,” and “Don’t You Give Up on Love,” and “Heart Trouble” (Steve Wariner). In recent years, Gibson penned “The Frog Song” which is the inspiration for a musical comedy series with puppets called “The Waterhole Bunch” and is currently running on ROKU TV (Spydar TV). He has also been writing children’s books.
Gary Chapman has long been one of the most respected singer-songwriters in Nashville. For nearly four decades, Chapman has seamlessly blurred the musical lines of contemporary Christian, pop, country, and southern gospel, racking up an impressive list of awards including seven Dove Awards, five GRAMMY nominations, and writing credits for legendary artists such as Kenny Rogers, Alabama, and Wynonna. Chapman is also widely remembered as the host of TNN’s popular “Prime Time Country” television series and the “Sam’s Place” concert series and radio show at the Ryman Auditorium. Once a week, Chapman sings live from his living room and tells the stories behind a different classic hymn for the project called “A Hymn a Week” where he shares songs and personal stories and the history of these timeless classics:
