– Gaylon Pope and SweetWater return to The Rudy Theatre in Selma Saturday, September 19, 2015, as part of their national touring act. Gaylon Pope, former vocalist & Emcee for the American Music Jubilee, returns home to The Rudy Theatre for one night only.

"In a sense it’s somewhat like a homecoming show for me when I come back to the Rudy," said Pope, "I have fond memories of my years in Selma and the American Music Jubilee Show, and I hope all our friends in Johnston County and surrounding areas will come out to visit with me.” 

Gaylon Pope & SweetWater are national touring artists represented by CenterStage Entertainment. The group markets four CD recordings, including a Gospel CD that has become one of their best sellers. Their tour date schedule consists of festivals, fairs, dinner-shows, theatres, performing arts venues and churches.

The group has experienced sold-out audiences across the country since their departure five years ago from their very own theatre in Morehead City and have become members of The Artist Music Guild, Ambassadors for ‘The American Cancer Society’ and Featured Artist for Dinner-Shows at Mike’s Farm & Country Restaurant, including their ever popular Christmas-Dinner Show.

The variety show they will perform in Selma is family friendly and features “Sweet Country Music”, Motown, Gospel & “Down Home Humor” from a character named: ‘Granny No-Mo’. Bring the entire family or group to enjoy this one night, one show only event.
