Gold City Biography
The rich prevalence of gold in a small Georgia town set the stage for what was referred to as the Great Gold Revival: the largest gold rush in U.S. history. Over a century and a half later, in 1980, Dahlonega, the “City of Gold” would be struck yet again by gold fever. This time with the formation of what would become one of the top quartets in Southern Gospel Music – Gold City.
From the groups earliest days in Dahlonega to the present day in Gadsden, AL, Gold City has been abundantly blessed with Godly, sincere men who, with the combination of their powerful vocals and unparalleled dedication has earned legions of devoted fans across the U.S. and Canada, as well as overseas.
With their unique style and versatility, Gold City has produced over 49 hit songs and more than 40 recordings, as well as earned numerous awards and nominations. But for this group of men, it isn’t the awards and accolades that drive them. It is the desire that God has placed in their hearts to make a difference for the Kingdom Of God. They will be the first to tell you that there is nothing more rewarding than knowing God can use them to touch people’s lives.
For over 30 years Gold City has consistently delivered a concert and a message that ministers to each person individually in a way that is genuinely and sincerely felt by all, and they are committed to continue doing so for as long as God makes a way. As they continue to add hit songs to the list, and as the bus continues to roll week after week, it’s not about the who, when or where, it’s about the why: to minister to those in need, through the greatest music on earth, and following His lead, every step of the way.
