Cox Family to treat Lions Thursday

Minden Lions are in for a special treat this Thursday at noon. The program will be provided by local bluegrass group The Cox Family, who will perform a 30-minute set of bluegrass gospel favorites.

The Cox Family hails from Cotton Valley right here in Webster Parish and continues the trademark sound of Southern gospel, bluegrass and country music. The legacy of founding member Willard Cox now lives on through his son, Sidney, and his daughters, Anna, Sara and Lydia. 

A successful songwriter, Sidney has penned songs that have been recorded by Allison Krauss, Alan Jackson, Reba McIntyre, and Aaron Lewis. The Cox Family shares three Grammy Awards for their collaboration on the Allison Krauss album, “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow,” the various-artists project titled “Amazing Grace: A Country Salute to Gospel,” and the hit soundtrack for the movie, “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”

The Cox Family will be introduced Thursday by Lion Tracy Campbell.

Minden Lions meet at noon every Thursday at the American Legion Hall on Pine Street.
