Based in Kingsport, TN, Russell Bennett has been singing for churches and other events since the fall of 2003. Russell's performances features a wide range of gospel music songs. From traditional hymns and favorites to the jazzy and soulful selections from the gospel music genre. His ministry focus is to reach the lost and encourage the believer of the Tri-Cities and the surrounding area. Russell's most recent project, "Gospel Jukebox", is a trip down memory lane with a rockabilly feel.
Russell is a native of Johnson City, TN. He, his wife Katie and two sons live in Gray, TN. Russell had enjoyed Southern Gospel Music at a young age and returned to its influences as an adult. He has fond memories of watching the Gospel Singing Jubilee on Sunday mornings as a child. Decades later and upon borrowing a Cathedrals Quartet cassette, Russell was hooked on Southern Gospel Music once again.
Russell has had the pleasure and honor to share the stage with Josh Garner of the Florida Boys, the legendary Naomi Sego and Dollywood’s Kingdom Heirs. Russell is always praying that the congregations that he visits with will be blessed and encouraged through the music presented.
