Karen Peck and The Issacs pack downtown Greenville's Saturday on the Square

GREENVILLE, Ky. (7/30/13) – One would have been hard pressed to find a lawn chair anywhere in Muhlenberg County Saturday, as two of the nation's top Gospel groups played to one of the biggest crowds yet for the weekly "Saturday on the Square" concert.

By the time 3-time Grammy winners Karen Peck and New River took to the stage, the crowd had spread out for over two blocks, with excited fans sitting (and standing) shoulder to shoulder.
 
As the group sang crowd favorites, such as "Four Days Late," and their number one hit "Mighty Big God" the enthusiastic crowd clapped and sang along. Even Greenville Mayor Ed DeArmond got in on the act as Ms. Peck brought him on stage to sing along.
 
The group also invited the children in the audience to join them on stage as well for a rousing version of "Jesus Loves Me".
 
The gospel favorites continued as Ms. Peck's band left the stage and she introduced The Issacs, who are known not just for their own hits, but also as a favorite in the many Gaither Homecoming performances.
 
No one seemed to mind the traffic jams as hundreds of happy Gospel music lovers headed home.
 
This Saturday night, another big crowd-pleasing group appears in the concert series. Mudd River Union, whose members are all from Muhlenberg County, bring their unique, high-energy country sound to the Saturday on the Square stage, with show time at 8:00 p.m.
