  • ("A Little Song Comin' On" by Three Bridges)
  • 00:00:19.030 --> 00:00:20.110
  • Locked in prison, I've been bound up tight
  • 00:00:20.110 --> 00:00:23.200
  • Trouble and chains, tryin' to stop my fight
  • 00:00:23.200 --> 00:00:27.210
  • Ain't nobody gonna go my bail
  • 00:00:27.210 --> 00:00:32.050
  • Old devil's jailer is just outside my cell
  • 00:00:32.050 --> 00:00:37.010
  • I'm not Silas, I'll never be Paul
  • 00:00:37.010 --> 00:00:41.050
  • But they found the only way to shake those walls
  • 00:00:41.050 --> 00:00:45.200
  • They didn't make a break in that midnight hour
  • 00:00:45.200 --> 00:00:49.210
  • They sung the house down with that Holy Ghost power
  • 00:00:49.210 --> 00:00:54.210
  • I feel a little song comin' on
  • 00:00:55.270 --> 00:00:57.180

  • Gonna keep on singin' 'til they're gone
  • 00:01:03.060 --> 00:01:06.060
  • These old walls are not that strong
  • 00:01:06.060 --> 00:01:08.080
  • I feel a little song comin' on
  • 00:01:08.080 --> 00:01:12.120
  • I feel a little song comin' on
  • 00:01:12.120 --> 00:01:15.120

  • Circumstances got ya doin' time
  • 00:01:31.290 --> 00:01:36.280
  • Hold your peace until eleven fifty-nine
  • 00:01:36.280 --> 00:01:41.100
  • Just clear your throat so you can do your thing
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:45.130
  • Straight-Up midnight make those rafters ring
  • 00:01:45.130 --> 00:01:50.090
  • Don't be somber, no don't be soft
  • 00:01:50.090 --> 00:01:54.140
  • Go right on, and sing the roof right off
  • 00:01:54.140 --> 00:01:58.270
  • There's no escape, so the devil says
  • 00:01:58.270 --> 00:02:03.030
  • But he's not God, and this ain't Alcatraz, no
  • 00:02:03.030 --> 00:02:08.020
  • I feel a little song comin' on
  • 00:02:09.090 --> 00:02:10.080

  • I feel a little song comin' on
  • 00:02:39.030 --> 00:02:43.180
  • Gonna let a little power rock these doors
  • 00:02:43.180 --> 00:02:45.250
  • Rumble and a roll underneath these floors
  • 00:02:45.250 --> 00:02:48.030
  • Stay 'til I pray that jailer through
  • 00:02:48.030 --> 00:02:50.070

  • I feel a little song comin' on, on, on
  • 00:03:36.250 --> 00:03:41.250
  • Yes, Lord
  • 00:03:46.090 --> 00:03:49.070
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:52.070
  • - Those boys can sing.
  • 00:03:54.140 --> 00:03:56.120
  • Three Bridges, they're awesome.
  • 00:03:56.120 --> 00:03:58.230
  • Well, hey.
  • 00:03:58.230 --> 00:03:59.220
  • Welcome to Main Stage,
  • 00:03:59.220 --> 00:04:01.060
  • I'm Jason Crabb, and I am so excited
  • 00:04:01.060 --> 00:04:04.050
  • about this show.
  • 00:04:04.050 --> 00:04:05.170
  • We've got Grammy Award winning Jeff and Sheri Easter
  • 00:04:05.170 --> 00:04:09.020
  • taking the Main Stage.
  • 00:04:09.020 --> 00:04:10.040
  • And a little later,
  • 00:04:10.040 --> 00:04:12.040
  • Gerald Wolfe sits down
  • 00:04:12.040 --> 00:04:13.230
  • with one of NQC's production crew members
  • 00:04:13.230 --> 00:04:16.270
  • as he shares an incredible story
  • 00:04:16.270 --> 00:04:19.100
  • of God's amazing faithfulness.
  • 00:04:19.100 --> 00:04:21.160
  • But first, enjoy my friends, The Easters.
  • 00:04:21.160 --> 00:04:25.160
  • - [Announcer] Jeff and Sheri Easter
  • 00:04:25.160 --> 00:04:26.250
  • are both descendants of bluegrass dynasties,
  • 00:04:26.250 --> 00:04:29.260
  • but for over 30 years,
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:31.060
  • they have made their own unmistakable mark
  • 00:04:31.060 --> 00:04:33.120
  • in both southern and bluegrass genres.
  • 00:04:33.120 --> 00:04:36.060
  • With two Grammy nods, six Dove Awards
  • 00:04:36.060 --> 00:04:38.220
  • and more than a dozen Fan Awards,
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:41.020
  • Jeff and Sheri Easter set a high bar
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:43.120
  • and yet remain, salt of the earth.
  • 00:04:43.120 --> 00:04:45.280
  • - You've got a brand new grand baby,
  • 00:04:45.280 --> 00:04:48.110
  • and I have eight, and I know
  • 00:04:48.110 --> 00:04:50.280
  • this is your first little...
  • 00:04:50.280 --> 00:04:52.130
  • I mean, oh my goodness, he's a doll.
  • 00:04:52.130 --> 00:04:54.140
  • What does it feel like, and what does he call you?
  • 00:04:54.140 --> 00:04:56.290
  • - It is absolutely awesome.
  • 00:04:56.290 --> 00:04:58.180
  • My favorite line about grand parenting,
  • 00:04:58.180 --> 00:05:01.000
  • I had a friend tell me, she said,
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:02.040
  • "I've heard a lot of overacting,
  • 00:05:02.040 --> 00:05:04.060
  • "a lot of overstating things in my lifetime,
  • 00:05:04.060 --> 00:05:07.100
  • "but being a grandparent is the only thing
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:09.010
  • "that I have not ever found it to be overstated."
  • 00:05:09.010 --> 00:05:12.040
  • It is everything you want it to be,
  • 00:05:12.040 --> 00:05:14.070
  • It's everything you dreamed it would be,
  • 00:05:14.070 --> 00:05:15.230
  • he's perfect, he's precious.
  • 00:05:15.230 --> 00:05:17.240
  • I love it when he gives me unsolicited kisses.
  • 00:05:17.240 --> 00:05:20.290
  • (Host coos)
  • 00:05:20.290 --> 00:05:22.120
  • And he's supposed to call us Grandma and Grampa,
  • 00:05:22.120 --> 00:05:25.000
  • but right now, it's Ma and Pa.
  • 00:05:25.000 --> 00:05:27.040
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:05:27.040 --> 00:05:30.090
  • - Sheri and I are both breast cancer survivors.
  • 00:05:30.090 --> 00:05:33.020
  • - Breast cancer survivors, nine years.
  • 00:05:33.020 --> 00:05:34.190
  • - Nine years.
  • 00:05:34.190 --> 00:05:35.240
  • Share a little advice, or something
  • 00:05:35.240 --> 00:05:36.250
  • you would tell them how it feels
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:38.220
  • to go through something like that
  • 00:05:38.220 --> 00:05:39.190
  • and come out of it.
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:40.170
  • - You know what?
  • 00:05:40.170 --> 00:05:41.120
  • When you hear that news,
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:43.040
  • you're completely taken aback.
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:45.020
  • You hit the floor, the wind is sucked out of you,
  • 00:05:45.020 --> 00:05:48.050
  • you just don't know how to make sense of it.
  • 00:05:48.050 --> 00:05:50.070
  • And I will never forget, the very crude way
  • 00:05:50.070 --> 00:05:53.220
  • that my doctor said this to me,
  • 00:05:53.220 --> 00:05:55.190
  • but it stuck with me, and I've said this to other women.
  • 00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:58.180
  • He looked at me and he said,
  • 00:05:58.180 --> 00:06:00.050
  • "You do not have to die from breast cancer."
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:02.140
  • - That's right, Amen.
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:03.200
  • - And it was a very cold statement.
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:06.000
  • - Yes.
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:07.150
  • - But I was very grateful that he did not mince words.
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:09.120
  • And you know what?
  • 00:06:09.120 --> 00:06:10.180
  • That's one of the first things I tell women.
  • 00:06:10.180 --> 00:06:12.010
  • You do not have to die from breast cancer.
  • 00:06:12.010 --> 00:06:14.060
  • - That's great advice.
  • 00:06:14.060 --> 00:06:15.140
  • - You know, we're gonna take care of our bodies,
  • 00:06:15.140 --> 00:06:16.200
  • we're gonna seek out good medical attention,
  • 00:06:16.200 --> 00:06:19.180
  • and do everything we can.
  • 00:06:19.180 --> 00:06:21.090
  • Be proactive.
  • 00:06:21.090 --> 00:06:22.030
  • - Screenings.
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:23.050
  • - Create awareness for others.
  • 00:06:23.050 --> 00:06:24.220
  • - Amen.
  • 00:06:24.220 --> 00:06:25.200
  • - It's a huge deal for me.
  • 00:06:25.200 --> 00:06:27.020
  • - It is.
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:28.080
  • - To speak about it and to encourage others
  • 00:06:28.080 --> 00:06:29.220
  • so that they don't have to go through it.
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:31.150
  • - Alright, let's see how quick you are.
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:32.250
  • Who is Sheri's favorite singer?
  • 00:06:32.250 --> 00:06:34.140
  • - Keith Urban.
  • 00:06:34.140 --> 00:06:35.080
  • - Ugly.
  • 00:06:35.080 --> 00:06:36.030
  • - He's hot.
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:37.040
  • (group laughs)
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:37.290
  • - I saw him today.
  • 00:06:37.290 --> 00:06:38.240
  • - Well, he's hot.
  • 00:06:38.240 --> 00:06:39.220
  • And I'm happy she likes Keith.
  • 00:06:39.220 --> 00:06:41.230
  • - How many Grammy nominations have you had?
  • 00:06:41.230 --> 00:06:43.120
  • - Two.
  • 00:06:43.120 --> 00:06:44.100
  • - Two Grammy nominations, okay.
  • 00:06:44.100 --> 00:06:46.050
  • How many Dove awards did you win last year?
  • 00:06:46.050 --> 00:06:47.290
  • - Last year, two.
  • 00:06:47.290 --> 00:06:49.030
  • - Wow, see?
  • 00:06:49.030 --> 00:06:50.130
  • - Wow, congratulations.
  • 00:06:50.130 --> 00:06:51.080
  • - Man, I'm tellin' you.
  • 00:06:51.080 --> 00:06:52.150
  • - Country album and country song.
  • 00:06:52.150 --> 00:06:53.050
  • - That's great.
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.200
  • - Alright, how many pair of shoes does Sheri have?
  • 00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:55.200
  • - Oh, dear Lord.
  • 00:06:55.200 --> 00:06:56.180
  • No, we can't answer that.
  • 00:06:56.180 --> 00:06:57.180
  • (ladies laugh)
  • 00:06:57.180 --> 00:06:58.130
  • - Come on.
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:06:59.110
  • - We've gotta clause that...
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:00.180
  • - Just guess.
  • 00:07:00.180 --> 00:07:02.000
  • - I bet she's got a hundred, just in her closet.
  • 00:07:02.000 --> 00:07:03.130
  • Not counting what's on the bus.
  • 00:07:03.130 --> 00:07:04.230
  • - How many's in the bus?
  • 00:07:04.230 --> 00:07:05.270
  • - Another hundred.
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:07.080
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:08.220
  • She has shoes.
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:10.020
  • - My sisters have 'em around the bus.
  • 00:07:10.020 --> 00:07:12.140
  • - It's the only thing that never changes sizes.
  • 00:07:12.140 --> 00:07:14.270
  • - So what does that mean?
  • 00:07:16.010 --> 00:07:17.070
  • You should have less of them, right?
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:18.020
  • - That's true.
  • 00:07:18.020 --> 00:07:19.000
  • - You should have less of them.
  • 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:20.080
  • - No, I can still go shop for those
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:21.060
  • and I know what size I wear.
  • 00:07:21.060 --> 00:07:22.210
  • - That's great.
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:23.280
  • - This is a question as a bus mechanic,

  • 00:17:27.090 --> 00:17:29.000
  • And a couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:30.220
  • sent me a link to a story on YouTube
  • 00:17:30.220 --> 00:17:34.030
  • about you and your son and I thought,
  • 00:17:35.090 --> 00:17:37.060
  • okay, now I know a little bit more
  • 00:17:37.060 --> 00:17:39.260
  • why certain songs touch J.T.
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:42.240
  • so I want you to tell us that story.
  • 00:17:42.240 --> 00:17:45.000
  • - Yeah, in 2010, my ex-wife
  • 00:17:45.000 --> 00:17:46.280
  • was runnin' a women's drug program
  • 00:17:46.280 --> 00:17:48.100
  • We had a little boy that was in the program.
  • 00:17:48.100 --> 00:17:49.260
  • His father was in prison, his mom was in the program
  • 00:17:49.260 --> 00:17:52.160
  • so we took him in and in 2012,
  • 00:17:52.160 --> 00:17:55.110
  • he permanently moved in with me
  • 00:17:55.110 --> 00:17:57.180
  • and I was out on tour and so I had people
  • 00:17:57.180 --> 00:18:00.110
  • that watched him for me and in 2013
  • 00:18:00.110 --> 00:18:03.060
  • I was in Australian finishing a tour
  • 00:18:03.060 --> 00:18:04.260
  • and I got a phone call to call home
  • 00:18:04.260 --> 00:18:06.250
  • and He had gotten sick at school
  • 00:18:06.250 --> 00:18:08.130
  • and got diagnosed with ALL leukemia.
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:11.050
  • It was pretty tough to deal with.
  • 00:18:11.050 --> 00:18:13.060
  • I screamed to God for a couple of days
  • 00:18:13.060 --> 00:18:14.210
  • in a hotel room in Australia, got back home,
  • 00:18:14.210 --> 00:18:17.140
  • came to the hospital,
  • 00:18:17.140 --> 00:18:18.240
  • and a nurse came into his hospital room,
  • 00:18:18.240 --> 00:18:20.220
  • that actually goes to my church in Sevierville
  • 00:18:20.220 --> 00:18:22.220
  • and she told me, she said, don't ask why him,
  • 00:18:22.220 --> 00:18:25.030
  • ask why not him.
  • 00:18:25.030 --> 00:18:25.280
  • Because God has a plan for everybody
  • 00:18:27.040 --> 00:18:28.180
  • and she knew Trevor could handle this.
  • 00:18:28.180 --> 00:18:30.210
  • So, from that point on, it kinda changed my perspective
  • 00:18:30.210 --> 00:18:33.230
  • and then I had another person in my church
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:35.080
  • that told me that, he's gonna take Trevor's mess,
  • 00:18:35.080 --> 00:18:37.140
  • and turn it into a message,
  • 00:18:37.140 --> 00:18:38.190
  • and he's gonna be the messenger.
  • 00:18:38.190 --> 00:18:40.220
  • And so, for the next three years,
  • 00:18:40.220 --> 00:18:41.280
  • we did chemo every week,
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:44.060
  • and I took some time off touring.
  • 00:18:44.060 --> 00:18:46.160
  • My faith in God grew a lot,
  • 00:18:46.160 --> 00:18:48.080
  • and through being involved with the NQC here,
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:50.170
  • and Bill Gaither, and just being around the gospel music
  • 00:18:50.170 --> 00:18:52.270
  • as much as I could, which I'd been doin'
  • 00:18:52.270 --> 00:18:54.270
  • for a few years anyways,
  • 00:18:54.270 --> 00:18:56.110
  • God really began to speak to me,
  • 00:18:56.110 --> 00:18:58.210
  • and my faith began to grow in God, again
  • 00:18:58.210 --> 00:19:01.240
  • after bein' involved in the secular music world
  • 00:19:01.240 --> 00:19:03.170
  • for so many years.
  • 00:19:03.170 --> 00:19:04.280
  • And in March of 2016, I legally adopted Trevor
  • 00:19:04.280 --> 00:19:09.150
  • and in May of 2016, he came off chemo.
  • 00:19:09.150 --> 00:19:12.140
  • So, God just performed a real miracle
  • 00:19:12.140 --> 00:19:14.050
  • in both of our lives.
  • 00:19:14.050 --> 00:19:15.060
