Cowboy Country Church marks anniversary with Doyle Dykes concert

 Cowboy Country Church will be celebrating it’s 17th anniversary this week with a special service on Saturday night featuring guitarist Doyle Dykes.
 Dykes has made numerous stops at the church through the years and Pastor Lynn Walker is excited that Dykes could be a part of the Church’s anniversary.
 Dyke’s early years as a guitarist took him around the world as he toured with The Stamps Quartet and later with Grand Ole Opry Star, Grandpa Jones. He has since returned to the Grand Ole Opry for numerous performances, many appearing live on national television. He performs in venues ranging from Theatres, Bluegrass festivals, and churches, to major conventions in the United States and abroad.
 Although influenced by a wide variety of musical styles and musicians from the country of Chet Atkins to the rock and roll of Duane Eddy and the Beatles, Dykes has developed a distinct, recognizable sound that amazes audiences with skill while capturing hearts with sincerity and soul.
 Dyke’s appreciation for various styles of music is reflected in his albums as they include signature compositions like “Jazz in the Box” and “Martha’s Kitchen” and hymns like the powerful “How Great Thou Art.”
 “Gitarre 2000″ was released by Windham Hill Records, and Doyle’s music has appeared on several of the label’s compilation albums like “Here, There, and Everywhere” (a tribute to the Beatles). In addition, Doyle’s music has been heard on United Airlines, Air Canada, NPR’s Morning News and All Things Considered, Disney’s California Adventure, and even the Space Shuttle Atlantis in September, 2000.
 He has played on stage with Les Paul, Chet Atkins, Duane Eddy, Peter Frampton, John Fogerty, Vince Gill, and many others.
 Doyle Dykes is unbelievable with a guitar and has a very relaxed way of mixing stories and antedotes with his presentation.
 You can preview his talents at www.doyledykes.com or on You Tube.
 The doors will open for the free concert at 6:30 and the program begins at 7:00 pm at the Cowboy Country Church located just southwest of Chickasha 4092 Norge Road. A love offering will be taken and Dykes will have albums for sale.
