Jeff and Sheri Easter, a southern gospel husband and wife duo have been honored by multiple industry award nominations and make frequent appearances on Gaither Homecoming tours and videos. Both Jeff and Sheri have been singing and performing since they were kids. They began singing together when they were married in the summer of 1985. The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts is excited to welcome them Friday, April 3. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. and tickets start at $15.
Having grown up surrounded by the sound of people praising God through their musical talents, Jeff and Sheri can imagine no other life. Jeff’s father is one of the Easter Brothers and Sheri’s mother is a member of The Lewis Family. Gospel music is in their blood. In 1984, Jeff was performing with the Singing Americans at a gospel singing in Arkansas. He had met Sheri’s mother Polly once before, but when he saw her at this event, he reintroduced himself. She then introduced Jeff to Sheri, and ten months later they were married. The newlyweds began touring with The Lewis Family, but in 1988 decided to start touring on their own.
