Tribute set for musician

Thursday, March 22, 2012

"Shotgun Red" Variety Show producer Steve Hall will pay tribute to Jack Boswell and his music ministry in a television show to be aired Monday, at 7 p.m., on the RFD-TV Network. Jack died Dec. 30, 2011, just before his band was to perform on the show. Members of the Jack Boswell Country Gospel Band included (from left) Jack Boswell, Mark Boswell, Pat Pittman Jarvis, Jim Allison and Sebern Campbell.
The Jack Boswell Country Gospel Band was scheduled to travel to Nashville, Tenn., Jan. 9, for a taping on the "Shotgun Red" Variety Show, which airs weekly on the RFD Network.

The band had been chosen as one of the 78 acts among 2,500 applicants. It was scheduled to tape its segment before a live studio audience Monday, Jan. 9, in the General Jackson Ballroom, located on the famed General Jackson Riverboat in Nashville.

However, the band, composed of Jack Boswell on piano, Mark Boswell on drums, Pat Pittman Jarvis on vocals, Jim Allison on bass and Sebern Campbell on guitar, did not make the trip as Jack died Dec. 30, 2011.

"Shotgun Red" Variety Show producer Steve Hall will pay tribute to Jack and his music ministry in an upcoming program.

The show will be on television Monday, March 26, at 7 p.m., and Tuesday, March 27, at 9:30 a.m. In addition, it will air again April 1, at 1 p.m.

The "Shotgun Red" Variety Show airs Monday evenings, with previous episodes on Fridays and Sundays.

The Jack Boswell Band shared the stage with 18 artists who have been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

After retiring in 1983, Jack devoted his talents to the creation of a faith-based music ministry, which allowed his band to perform in hundreds of churches throughout the state.
