Upcoming Event

Barry Ward will be featured at the Ponca City Gospel Jubilee Saturday May 25th at 6:30 p.m. We are excited for his return visit to the Jubilee and we always enjoy Barry and his wife Victoria Ward. Doors open at 5. Focusing on what this country means to those who love it, Barry Ward’s songs reflect that honesty of storytelling into images that create personal emotions. From the prairies of southwest Kansas, Ward grew up as a fourth-generation farmer and stockman. He knew his neighbors; his LORD; and how to weave the rites of passage of time into rhythmic lyrics. Add to that his amazing talent on the guitar, and you are promised to leave with a heartfelt experience.
His song, Harvest in the Fall is featured in the “The Great American Wheat Harvest” documentary. Plus, he is included on the “Home on the Range” movie soundtrack. To date, Ward has performed in all of the lower 48 states plus Alaska, and 3 foreign countries, including on stage at Carnegie Hall in New York City!
Barry has won multiple awards:
• Induction into the Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame
• Male Performer of the Year with three separate entertainment organizations: Academy of Western Artists, International Western Music Association and the Country Gospel Music Association.
• For multiple years, he has won CD of the Year with the prestigious Rural Roots Musi
