About Flatland Gospel Band
What started out as just a church band from the flat Delta farm lands of Northeast Arkansas, when Pastor and front man John Dillinger moved back to the area to start an Independent Baptist Church, he desired to have a "bluegrass sound" for the congregational and special music. God brought together these four men, with little to no experience in bluegrass music and formed the church band that would become the Flatland Gospel Band. "We just picked out instruments and prayed that God would help us play them." said Chase Smith mandolin player and tenor singer of the band.
In just over four years, from not knowing how to play most of our instruments, to playing several dates a year, they have become one of the most unique Gospel bands around.
"Just listen to the words of the songs that we write, and we believe that you'll hear songs that will point you to Jesus, and remind you of days gone by!" JD
