Blake confirmed the sale of the property, via twitter, in a response to a question asked by his fan. “As a resident of Tishomingo, I’m very sorry that the Pink Pistol has decided to move its operations out of the area,” Blake said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight. “We all, as a community, appreciate everything it has done for our town. As for the actual properties left behind . . . I was offered the opportunity to buy them, and I have a plan brewing.”
But Miranda still has her Pink Pistol location in Lindale, Texas, which she will be moving to a new location for expansion.
“It feels full circle to have everything under one ‘roof’ basically where it all began in my hometown of Lindale,” Miranda said in a statement. “I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all the employees who worked hard to help me bring the store in Tishomingo to life, as well as the patrons who came to experience the Pink Pistol and supported the store. Sometimes you need to close a chapter to build on a new beginning or go back home.”
Could Blake’s words be a hint about his plans for the building? Brewing? Perhaps a bar or brewery is in the works in Tishomingo. We’ll have to stay tuned and find out what Blake has in store.

He has been blessed to be on the ground floor of many musical trends. Did you know, Marvell was a member of the late 60s Warner Brothers’ band Mercy who recorded the solid gold classic, “Love Can Make You Happy”? Historically, Mercy topped Billboard, Cashbox and RecordWorld’s Top 10 with Elvis, Sinatra and the Beatles in 1969.
In the early 70s, Marvell and Mercy band member Buddy Good headed to Nashville with a mission to bring good clean country music and anti-drug messages to country fans and it’s youth.
James and Buddy formed The Country Cavaleers, a unique MGM duo who turned heads in country music with their long hair half way down their backs but singing pure country music. In 1971 CMA said: “The Cavaleers have scored a First in the world of Country Music.” See Youtube video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbtqIASyrS8
The 80s took James Marvell into jewelry designing. He created some of the most collectible turquoise jewelry of that day. He designed the famous Johnny Cash, June Carter, Bill Monroe and Willie Nelson turquoise collections which were purchased by thousands of country fans worldwide.
Marvell then set his sites on Christian Country Gospel Music and Branson Missouri when Willie Nelson opened a door for him in 1992 at his Willie Nelson Ozark Theater.
The Johnny Minick Family, a well known gospel group would come to Willie’s Theater to hold their weekly worship and preaching services along with great music. Minick saw Marvell as a very enthusiastic and sincere entertainer who truly cared about the ministry and approached him to be a part of the program.
It had to be the Lord because Marvell immediately caught the vision and promised the Minicks he would do anything possible to help promote the important weekly event.
Marvell was led to utilize every opportunity in the theater given to him by Willie and his contacts around Branson to makesure that Minick had a crowd.
What started as a weekly gathering of 15 or 20 grew quickly into capacity crowds at Willie’s 1,500 seat Theater. The media caught Marvell’s enthusiasm donating large promotional articles every week about the new Branson Gospel Services.
Later, Barbara Fairchild joined in and promoted it from the Mel Tillis Theater across town where she performed. The news exploded and the Fire Marshall had to turn folks away because of capacity crowds! The rest is now history concerning those early days of Theater Worship in Branson Missouri.
This was one of the most memorable times in Marvell’s career because of his love for Branson Missouri, it’s people and friends he made there.
Around 2004 James came back to Branson to be a special guest on The Jim Owen Show. Owen pitched one of his great songs to Marvell titled “I Prayed and I Prayed”.
Fellow Branson stars like Randy Plummer, Buck Trent and others cheered Marvell on when the song went to #1 in Country Gospel making it the first #1 hit to ever come out of Branson, Missouri!

I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who will do according to what is in my heart and mind. I will firmly establish his priestly house, and they will minister before my anointed one always. 1 Samuel 2:33 Being the high priest in Israel was a prestigious job, and Eli seemed suited to it. Yet he failed badly on the home front. ‘…His sons did not follow his ways. They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice’ (1 Samuel 8:3). As a result, God told Eli He ‘…would judge his family forever because of the sin he knew about; his sons blasphemed against God, and he failed to restrain them’ (1 Samuel 3:13). As a parent and leader you need to answer this question: If God applied the same standard to you as He did to Eli, how well would you do? Eli ended up losing his credibility, his children, his career, and eventually his life. He missed the mark because he made some critical errors.
Let’s look at them and see what we can learn:
1) He had the wrong emphasis. He emphasized the Word of God to the people in his congregation, but not to his own children.
2) He had the wrong expectations. He thought his children would ‘get it’ because they lived under his roof and worked in the church. But it doesn’t work that way.
3) He set the wrong example. Eli failed to live at home what he taught at work. He had 20/20 vision when it came to his profession, but where his family was concerned he was blind to his own weakness.
Leadership on the home front isn’t about power and control; it’s about ‘giving yourself’ to the people who should matter most (Ephesians 5:25). So, how are you doing on the home front?
Prayer Heavenly Father,
help me to be an example on my home front and to live out what I believe.
Forgive me when I do not. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
