Ultimate Smoky Mountain Christmas

The Best of Southern Gospel Music

The Collingsworth Family

The Collingsworth Family is bringing their own Orchestra to back them up for this huge Christmas Spectacular Concert on Monday night.

This family sings to packed houses all year long, but when it comes to their Christmas performance……. there is a waiting list at the Performing Arts Theaters.

Kim Collingsworth is known for her outstanding gift of worship at the keys of a grand piano. Once you combine the Collingsworth Family with Kim at the grand piano with the live orchestra, you have the makings for one amazing night.

The Voices of Lee

The Voices of Lee are the world-renowned acapella choir from Lee University.

Their Christmas presentation with their crystal clear high soprano voices backed by the sound of their smooth low bass is the stuff of which Christmas memories are made.

This is some music from our youth that you will love. You will not soon forget their amazing performance.

Triumphant Quartet

Triumphant Quartet has been one of the most honored quartets in Southern Gospel Music.

You will soon learn the reason they have so many #1 Hits. They have an incredible blend. They have a great stage presence.

They are great guys, but the real reason is because their songs must bring Glory and Honor to the God they serve. You’re gonna’ love them!!

The Guardian Quartet

The Guardian Quartet with three Dove Award nominations, multiple #1 songs and the appreciation of Southern Gospel music lovers all over the nation will win your hearts as soon as they start singing.

Pat Barker is known for his legendary bass voice. I know we think of a little baby at Christmas, but just wait till you hear them sing “How Big is Our God!”

Chuck Wagon Gang

The Chuck Wagon Gang will return us to an old fashion Christmas time when families would sit around the radio in the living room and listen to live Christmas music.

Don’t you just wish the times were still that simple today? Ah yes, and you may have a desire on the way home to drop by the grocery and pick up a bag of Martha White Self Rising Flour.

Buddy Mullins

Buddy Mullins is the outstanding vocal artist who was inducted into the Gospel Music Association’s Hall of Fame for his time singing with the Grammy and Dove Award winning Gaither Vocal Band.  Buddy is currently a member of The Booth Brothers along with Jim Brady and Michael Booth. His Monday morning solo concert will long be remembered at The Ultimate Smoky Mountain Christmas Celebration. This man is going to bless your socks off on Monday morning at The Country Tonite Theater when he hits the high notes.

Anthem Edition

The Old Paths recently changed their name to Anthem Edition. They still embody the vision of the award-winning quartet we have all known and love, but they also bring a new, fresh feel to the stage that will bring you to your feet. We are excited they excepted our offer to join us at The Ultimate. You’re going to love these guys with their talent, vocal range and attention to the message of the gospel. Prepare for another blessing at the 2023 Ultimate Celebration. Oh….. this is going to be oh so good!!!

Inspiring Sermons


The Message of Christmas

You will be blessed by God’s Holy Word as we hear the true story of Christmas proclaimed. Our Preacher will touch your heart and impact your life as he relates a message that will help you celebrate Christmas more deeply than ever before.
Dr. Herb Reavis

Daniel Ritchie

Daniel Ritchie will rock your world. Daniel turns the pages of his Bible with his toes. He drives his car with his feet. He eats with his feet. He shoots a gun with his feet and uses a chain saw with his feet. Why? Because… he was born with no arms. Daniel is our special event preacher and he will share from the Word of God how a Special baby named Jesus can change your life just like that baby changed his life. You may never see or hear the Christmas story again without remembering the messages of Daniel Ritchie.

A word from your host…

Pastor Charles Nelson

As a Southern Baptist Pastor, I was always looking for someplace to take my people where I knew they would be entertained, laugh out loud and NOT be embarrassed by the shows. I always wanted to get a good return for money spent. I found some great places, but I also wanted a place that had a spiritual impact as well. So I decided to create the very best value possible with as much included as possible.

I don’t know where you can get a deal like this: four nights lodging, seven meals, eight Southern Gospel concerts, two comedians, Great Peaching, three of the best theaters shows, and Dollywood for such an incredible price. I’ve tried to do all the planning so all you have to do is gather your group and bring them to Pigeon Forge. I know you and your group will enjoy this event!
