Pappy “Gube” Beaver recorded four country & western singles for Capitol Records in the 1940s before finding himself in a jail cell in South Carolina, arrested for drunk driving. He devoted himself to preaching the gospel, and spent the next six decades as one of the last of the old time revival preachers, spreading his message from his Bible Church of God and his weekly radio station show on a small AM radio station in Knoxville, Tennessee.

“Rev. Pappy” is a biographical portrait of his long life in music and religion, filmed as he returned to the pulpit and the airwaves following a near-fatal car accident.
