Southern Gospel Music Legend Peg McKamey Talks About Their CD, "Something More"



The McKameys are one of Southern Gospel Music’s most cherished treasures. With the release of the , “Something More CD ”, the legacy of McKameys continues to grow.

I spoke with Peggy McKamey in the spring of 2008, shortly before the release of , “Something More”.

As usual Peggy was in great spirits and it was a joy speaking to her. She has the ability to lighten your day no matter what you may be going through. Her down to earth demeanor, her charm, and her sincere desire to do what God has called her to do makes her a special person whom I consider a privilege to have interviewed.

Between 12 and 33


One of the songs that I enjoy from the McKameys’, “Something More” CD is a song called “Between Twelve and Thirty-Three”.

Peg McKamey agrees and comments, “It’s unusual and causes us to think and wonder about those years the Bible is silent on”. She continues, “We can only wonder because if it had been intended for us to know the God would have put it in the Book. But He didn’t”.

“We remember His birth. We remember the Wisemen came a couple years later on. Then the next time we hear of Jesus is in the Temple at the age of twelve.”

“And then we don’t hear anything more. Its almost like the song says – He just disappeared until thirty. Then He comes out and starts His ministry and the last three years were different – they changed everything – He became the Savior He was meant to be between twelve and thirty-three.”

Between Twelve and Thirty-Three

From the CD, “Something More”
Based on Luke 2:3-7, 39-40; John 19:16-30

You can read about His virgin birth
That Holy night when He came down to earth
And the Bible says that He grew up
In the town of Nazareth
The only childhood story about Him
Was in a temple in Jerusalem
A boy became a man of destiny
Between twelve and thirty-three

Eighteen years are a mystery
His last three years He made history
Became the Savior He was sent to be
Between twelve and thirty-three

There’s nothing written ‘bout his formularize years
For a while it’s like He just disappeared
All the Bible says is he grew wise
And found favor in God’s eyes
When He got older and the time had come
He started proving to the world Who He was
Each step He took lead straight to Calvary
Between twelve and thirty-three

Eighteen years are a mystery
His last three years He made history
Became the Savior He was sent to be
Between twelve and thirty-three
