101st Birthday: The Gang Remembers Founding Member Anna Carter Gordon Davis

Feb 15 | Posted by: Bombplates

Today is the 101st anniversary of the birth of one Effie Juanita Carter Gordon Davis, better known by her "stage name" Anna.  While most are aware that she was the original alto singer of the Chuck Wagon Gang, some may not know that she was, in fact, the catalyst for the Gang's very existence.

If Anna had not suffered the illness which forced Dad Carter to journey to Lubbock Texas in search of opportunities to sing for money to pay for her medical treatment, the Gospel Music landscape just might look very different today.  

In celebration of Anna, fans are invited to post their favorite memories of her on the Gang's official Facebook page:
