    The Joymakers are celebrating their 50th anniversary of playing gospel music.

    Founded by Buddy Lowe of Greensburg in 1957, the Joymakers have traveled all across Kentucky and nationally from Florida to Wisconsin and Virginia to Iowa in their 50 years together.

    Original members included Lowe, Joe Tommy Hughes, Garland Milby, Bill Bradshaw and Betty Jo Larimore, who played the piano.

    Lowe said that in the group's early days, church music rarely featured instruments other than the piano.

    "In those days, you didn't use guitar and drums."

    But do the people you love know just how much you care?
