CRESTVIEW — You can’t smooth-talk a Christian country girl, but if you’re Central Baptist Church, you can attract her to perform a concert with her sisters.
At least, that’s the case for the Red Roots, who will visit the Hub City next weekend before releasing their third album of inspirational music in October.
Nika, Natalie and Nicole Taylor, the 22-year-old red-haired triplets from Mississippi — known for “Christian Country Girl,” their hit anthem on spurning womanizers’ advances— will perform Saturday, Sept. 14.
The group, which primarily sings pop, rock and country music, also records songs with a “grassy” feel, Natalie said.
Each month, Libby and Friends presents a public gospel concert along with refreshments and door prizes. Red Roots will headline next weekend after impressing concert series coordinator Libby White, who had attended a performance in their home state.
"The way they present themselves is amazing," White said. "If your youth group is looking for good role models, they are it."
Nashville-based Red Hen Records, Daywind Music Group’s country music division,agrees that the Red Roots have that “it” factor. The company signed the group to a long-term recording and publishing agreement last month.
Performing in Crestview is a first for the trio, Natalie said.
"We are super-excited about coming to Crestview,” Taylor said."The crowd can expect high energy on stage with electric guitar solos, rockin' banjo and violin sawin.' All mixed in with a little keyboard, drums, bass and mandolin."
Doors open at 5 p.m.; show starts at 6 p.m. at 951 S. Ferdon Blvd. Tickets cost $10 per person; $15 per area youth group.
