Country favorite Tim Atwood, known as an “Entertainer’s Entertainer”, will be bringing his message through song to the Dale United Methodist Church during the Sunday morning worship service on July 28.
This multi-award-winning piano virtuoso learned from the best. With over 8,500 Grand Ole Opry performances, Tim successfully transitioned from the spotlight’s fringe where he played piano for Grammy Award winners and CMA Entertainers of the Year to the center stage where he performs his high energy stage show for audiences all over the world.
With recent television appearances on the Hallmark channel’s Home & Family Show, Fox News, RFDTV’s Larry’s Country Diner and the television series Country Family Reunion: Another Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting, Tim is a stylist who feels every song he sings, and in turn, the audience feels it too.
Tim is originally from East Peoria, Illinois. He began his music career playing gospel music at the age of 13 for the Harris Family. Before settling in at the Grand Ole Opry, Tim toured with country legends Mel Street, Lynn Anderson and Jim Ed Brown. Tim’s other TV credits include Opry Live, Nashville Now, Hee Haw, Church Street Station, Country On The Gulf, Pop Goes The Country, Country Connection, Late Night With David Letterman, The Dailey & Vincent Show and features on CBS, NBC and FOX National News. He is a regular guest host on the iconic Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree on WSM Radio.
With recent nods for Entertainer of the Year by the Reunion of Professional Entertainers and Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists, Tim received the 2017 R.O.P.E. Award for Musician of the Year and was named by the Genuine Country Music Association as their 2017 Fan Favorite. In June 2018 he was inducted into the ALM Musician’s Hall of Fame.
While he enjoys performing his own show and recording his own projects, Tim continues to be a sought-after studio musician in Nashville. Being able to create great music for others is one of his favorite things about the music business. A devout Christian, Tim believes his gift FROM God is his gift TO God.
Dale United Methodist Church is located at 1 West Elm Street in Dale, just two blocks north of the one stoplight. The morning worship service starts at 10 a.m. The public is welcome and invited to attend, and a freewill offering will be accepted.
