Archie Watkins & Smoky Mountain Reunion
During the 45 year span that Archie was with the
Inspirations Quartet, he had the privilege of sharing
the stage with some men who's names and voices
you will no doubt recall. So for several dates a year,
since March 2010, some of these men have been
joining Archie onstage for a night in concert as
'Archie Watkins & Smoky Mountain Reunion'.
Among those who have been performing with Archie
are Marlin Shubert, Jack Laws, Troy Burns and
Eddie Deitz. There are many treasured songs, now considered classics, featuring these men that have been recorded over the years. So, the group will be performing these classics in concert during these limited appearances together. Due to the fact that Archie is the only one of these men who continues to travel and perform on a full time basis, these group appearances will be limited to a certain number per year, making each concert a must see! Archie has already booked several of the dates for 2012, and a schedule is posted here below.
Lots of folks are excited to see these men in concert together again, and they are equally excited to appear together on stage once more. Be sure to check back here soon for more details, and contact Archie directly for booking information. See you

Jack Laws peacefully passed away on August 27, 2013 at a local TN hospital with family and friends by his side. He will be remembered as a kind hearted friend to everyone and a gentle man who greeted anyone who crossed his path a big smile. It is hard to say goodbye for now but we know we will see him again. Our loss is Heaven's gain...and we truly have 'More to Go to Heaven For'...
Knowing Jack, he would not want us to be sad. So hopefully this will bring a smile to those of us left behind. This is one of the last photos I took of him, which was how most of us will remember him, and how I'm sure he would rather be remembered...
We love you Jack.....you will be missed...
