John Ashcroft To Appear At NQC

According to a press release just sent out by the NQC board, former Senator and US Attorney General John Ashcroft has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at this year’s NQC.  You will remember the uproar caused last year by former VP candidate and Gov. Sarah Palin’s appearance.  Senator Ashcroft’s appearance strikes me as a bit less controversial, as his affinity for Southern Gospel music is well known, he has attended NQC before, and even performed with a group of other Senators in the past at the event.  In an interesting twist, he will also be singing this time, accompanied by Greater Vision.  Here is the text of the press release:

Former Missouri Governor, U.S. Senator and U.S. Attorney General, John Ashcroft, has been confirmed as a keynote speaker during this year’s National Quartet Convention.  He will speak at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 15th.  He will be delivering a speech focusing on the value he places on his Christian faith and how it has guided his life and career. In addition, being a noted singer and songwriter, General Ashcroft will also be performing some of his original gospel songs accompanied by Greater Vision.  His keynote address is part of the Thursday Showcase Spectaculars.   To order showcase passes or to find out any other information about the National Quartet Convention, just visit
