NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 10, 2014) –
Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter and speaker Cheri Keaggy is ready to delve into Fall after several busy months that have included performances, volunteer work, and the wedding of her only daughter, Sarah. The popular singer/songwriter also is in the midst of writing material for a new CD, the follow up to her current release, So I Can Tell.
“What a summer! It’s been wonderful to get hands on with so many important ministries and see God using ordinary folks to accomplish extraordinary things,” Keaggy says. “I love being around believers who are passionate about what they do. It inspires me to keep doing what God has called me to do as well. Perhaps the biggest highlight of the summer was my daughter’s wedding. Not only does it mark a significant change in her life, but also in mine. I’m transitioning into a new season as an empty nester and so encouraged to be writing again toward a new album. There was definitely a lot of life experience that went into So I Can Tell, but I’m finding there’s still so much more to share. And I can’t wait to share it.”
Keaggy kicked off her warm weather activities as
the featured performer at the 75th Anniversary of the Pioneer Clubs, a church-sponsored organization dedicated to weekly children’s ministry programs throughout the U.S. The celebration was held recently in Wheaton, Ill. To learn more about Pioneer Clubs, visit pioneerclubs.org.

Keaggy also found herself volunteering for the Both Hands Foundation, a Nashville non-profit that helps both widows and orphans. The singer/songwriter helped refurbish a widow’s home, working alongside the friends and family of a couple planning to adopt a child. All of the work at the day-long event raised sponsorship funds to help defray adoption costs. To learn more about the work of Both Hands Foundation, visit bothhandsfoundation.org.
In the midst of the traveling and helping others, Keaggy put the final touches on her daughter’s wedding, which was held in August. She also squeezed in writing sessions for an upcoming CD.
The veteran performer is scheduled to serve as a judge at the Belmont University Christian Music Showcase on September 13 at the Curb Event Center.
Keaggy is currently touring in support of her CD, So I Can Tell, as well as speaking throughout the U.S., particularly to women’s groups.
