There is a new band in the Crossroads; not a country band not a rock band. This band is on a mission; a mission to see lives changed and the love of Jesus shared in the Crossroads.
For about nine years, Clay Crockett and the Shotgun Riders played the Crossroads area as one of the most popular bands around but a couple of years ago Crockett felt that the Lord had other plans for him. He finished up the scheduled events for 2015 that were on the books. At the end of 2015 the band did an event in Inez called “Last Call” and it actually ended up being a fundraiser for the new worship band ministry and in January of 2016 Crockett left the Shotgun Riders to start a ministry using music as the tool to reach others for Jesus. The result was Nation of Believers Band.
