Citizen of the Week

Thursday, September 8, 2011

If there were a Mensa for songwriters, Gary C. Albritton would be its premier.

Gary C. has written, co-written and rewritten songs all his life, and grew into an Arkansas legend. He's the strummer of Gaskins Switch, a 1970s bluegrass band that has put more energy and power into local lives than one can imagine.

Gary C.'s songs speak about lovin' and laughin' and fishin' and partyin' and twistin' off grasshopper heads.

Gary C. spent the past nine months planning a little family reunion that got way out of hand, and will commence Saturday night. Ticket proceeds will stay right here in town, a gift to the Parks Commission.
