Union County Historical Society – The Pressley Girls


Union county historical society the pressley girls

A big THANK YOU to eveyone who came out for The Pressley Girls performance at the Historical Union County Courthouse last night! The girls took control of most of the show, but Pap and Paul did some lovely 2 part harmony as well.

The crowd was fantastic and the spirit of the old courthouse was as always comfortable and inviting-somehow it’s always an easy place to peform.

You might remember a few years ago, Chitter claimed she seen Robert E. Lee roaming the halls of the courthouse after the show. (If you missed that story go here) Ever since that ‘sighting’ I know there’ll be another Robert E. Lee story when we perform for the Union County Historical Society.

Last night on the way home, Chitter said to her sister “Did you tell Mom about the picture?” Chatter said “No I wasn’t going to.” Once I made them fess up, the story came out.

Seems Chitter ran up the back stairs to give Robert E. Lee’s picture one last look. Her sister was standing near the bottom of the steps watching. Chitter kissed her fingers and threw the kiss to Robert. Chatter swears the eyes in the picture looked down at Chatter when she threw the kiss. Sigh…these girls! They sure do keep life interesting.

Ridgeline TV  filmed the entire show-so I’ll let you know when they air it on their website in case you want to see it!

    Very interesting!
    Maybe The Ghost Hunters need to investigate the Historical Society. Maybe he’ll give them a little wink too. (Ya never know) LOL
    God bless.

    I don’t blame the General! If I
    had two pretty things like that
    trying to get my attention, I’d
    be rolling my eyes too.
    Just taking a break from the corn.

    I’m sure he did! Just because he’s dead doesn’t mean he can’t appreciate a pretty girl.
    Can’t wait to see the video.

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN? IN CASE I WANT TO SEE THE VIDEO! You know I was so sad that I missed the BP&Acorn performance last night at the Union County Court House. Jim just simply refused to make another trip to the mountains – until fall set in. But we will surely be able to make another performance SOON!
    We’ll also be eager to attend their show when Chitter and Chatter MAKE IT to the UNION STATION in Nashville soon.

    Your girls are so precious! We really enjoyed their performance last night. The selection of music, their voices and the instruments all blended so beautifully. Thank you all for sharing your God-given talent with us!

    I’m sure The Pressley Girls and
    Paul and Pap with You controlling
    the order, did a wonderful job at
    the Courthouse. The last time I
    went, I had to stand the entire
    time but it was worth it.
    Yesterday and today I’m in Silver
    Queen up to my elbows. That’s a job for just one! And when there’s work to be done, it seems you can’t find anyone. I noticed
    the crows are doing their best on
    several stalks. Them boogers know
    before I do when it’s ready…Ken

    Of course we want to see it! I might have driven there for the show if I knew the girls would sing Crazy Arms.

    Old Robert E. may have been rolling his eyes in frustration if his ghost is being held prisoner in “Union” County.
