The Barnetts rock out

The Barnett Family

“Sings Amazing Grace
REV / Alvis #1-66


MAILBAG:

I really enjoy your site. I must take exception, however, with the album cover regarding the Barnett Family. I was a friend of Alvis Barnett (now deceased) and his wife Arleigh and other members of the family. Alvis came from a gospel background and as a young man Elvis and rock and roll were born. It was not uncommon then for someone like Alvis to adopt a, say, rockabilly hairstyle. Alvis told me that he even had some problems in church because he put a little bit too much rock and roll into some of his church music.

The song in the closing scenes of the movie “Nashville,” titled “Trouble in the U.S.A.” is performed by Alvis and was included in one of his family’s gospel albums. Alvis would tell you: God works in mysterious ways.
