Florence, SC - FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - The Gaither Homecoming Tour 2010 is heading to the Florence Civic Center this fall, bringing with it a wealth of contemporary gospel music to the Pee Dee.

The tour will kick off on Sept. 9 in Austin, TX, before heading to Florence on Nov. 12.

Bill Gaither, a multiple Grammy and Dove award winner, will be headlining the tour as his Homecoming CDs and DVDs continue to top music charts.

"In times like these, we must reflect on what is most important in our lives - faith, family and friends," Gaither said. "I invite everyone to join me and my friends for an uplifting musical extravaganza fileld with joy, laughter, good music and good memories."

The roster of performers hitting the stage alongside Gaither include: Karen Peck & New River, Mark Lowry, David Phelps, Michael English, Buddy Green and Gene McDonald.
