Daily Itinerary

Breakfast (B) | Lunch (L) | Dinner (D) | Drury Dinners (DD)

Day 1


We travel across Iowa to Moline, Illinois for the evening.

Day 2


We bus through Illinois and Kentucky and arrive in Clarksville, TN. This evening, enjoy a barbecue dinner and a night of singing the old time southern gospel songs with our fabulous bluegrass band, Passenger Creek. (B D)

Day 3


Start the morning with a trip to Bon Aqua, Tennessee for a visit to Johnny Cash’s Storyteller Farm. Above all else, Johnny Cash loved his Lord. He traveled all over with Rev. Billy Graham. Visit the farm that he called “the center of his universe.” Hear stories about Johnny from his nephew, Mark Alan Cash, as he sings tributes to his Uncle Johnny. Visit Loretta Lynn’s Ranch and enjoy an included tour of the Coal Miner’s Daughter Museum. Tonight will be our Cowboy Church night! We will have some wonderful music and fellowship with Ken Mellons—who had hits like Jukebox Junkie and Rub-A-Dubbin’ In My Tub, followed by the powerful testimony of Jeff Bates, who had hits on the country charts in the early 2000’s. (BLD)

Day 4


Join us today on a historic journey to the charming countryside of Montgomery County. Our destination? The 40-acre pioneer settlement known as Historic Collinsville, where the past comes alive between 1840 and 1900. Here, you’ll find 16 rustic log buildings, each filled with authentic treasures from the era—a genuine window into a bygone era. You’ll be able to explore the very homes, businesses, and schools of the pioneers who forged ahead, every step a testimony to their remarkable spirit. Experience their daily routines by examining artifacts such as farming tools, precious quilting supplies, and traditional clothing. Are you ready to take a step back in time and immerse yourself in this extraordinary piece of history? We will have an old time “dinner on the grounds” with music by southern gospel quartet, Still Water. After lunch we will head back to Clarksville for a shopping stop at Miss Lucille’s Marketplace. Best described as “where Pinterest meets Etsy”, this marketplace features antiques, handmade, recycled and repurposed treasures. In addition to the shopping experience, they have a lovely café for a cup of coffee or a sweet treat.

Tonight is a real treat! Jason Crabb has won a GRAMMY AND 21 DOVE AWARDS! He was named the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Awards Artist and Male Vocalist of the Year along with Song of the Year. Crabb’s electrifying stage presence, powerhouse vocals and magnetic personality have endeared him to millions across the world and tonight he will be performing for you at a local Clarksville church.
