THE CREEKSIDE DIARIES, Volume Four. Wednesday, October 31, 2018. By Kristen Stanton.

The third full day at Creekside began with a chapel service in the showcase hall led by Dr. Jerry Goff followed by a time of music with the ALQC Road Revival featuring several Creekside artists who also perform at the Alabama Quartet Convention.  

Scott Washam of Day Three

Scott Washam from Day Three talked about the humble beginnings of their event. “We didn’t have two pennies to rub together but we stepped out in faith.”

Washam went on to explain how the Road Revival ended up with a show at Creekside. “One day I was talking to Vonda on the phone and she said, hey you should bring the Road Revival to Creekside.  I thought she was joking but here we are.”

Wednesday night at Creekside would not be complete without Midnight Prayer.  The Chandlers led an intimate time of prayer and worship where over fifty had gathered believing they would leave this event different than they did when they walked in.  

Creekside continues to change lives from night to night.  We have one more day until the event wraps up.

If fans are making plans to travel to Pigeon Forge for the first time, they should take note of this comment by Rick Brock of Mercy Rain: “2017 was my first Creekside appearance.  It was at the start of the day and artists and people were just starting to come into the booth and concert area. The gentlemen who was behind the curtain separating the two aisles was playing his guitar and singing a song to pass the time.  I started to join singing harmony with him with the curtain still closed. Soon I pulled back the curtain so that we could see each other and introduce ourselves. I had never really got to meet him before this time.

Mercy Rain

Mercy Rain

Truthfully, our harmony was sounding really good. We would ask each other, do you know this song or do you know that song? If he did, he would play it on his guitar and we would both start to sing. Later, we had other artists from other nearby booths come over and join in. We were so enjoying ourselves that we failed to notice that several people had stopped by our booth to listen. They were so enjoying that mini impromptu concert where we were just enjoying singing and fellowshipping with one another. That set the tone for me for Creekside and I look forward to this coming year. That is what makes Creekside family – with a little front porch singing.”

Sheila Blackwell says, “Looking back to attending the first year of Creekside (2012) , I was so impressed with everyone involved that I too wanted to help it be an ongoing and successful event.  I talked with Rob Patz and the next year I became a volunteer. Every year since, the event has grown. So has the need for volunteers, thus I have coordinated a team to help annually. Blessings abound at this event; groups and people come and go, and the singing gets better and better. It is a blessing to know that  people are getting saved during the services. That’s why we do what we do. Hope to see everyone again this year.”

Creekside is offering a VIP bracelet for only $25 for the week. This will provide entry into the preferred seating at each event, includes a Creekside gift bag each night, as well as other select surprise events. VIP bracelet can be ordered by calling Rob Patz at 360-933-0741.

The Browders: How Sweet The Sound

Written by Staff on February 7, 2016 – 9:20 am -

The Browders

The Browders

Twenty-five years ago, in the hills of Hiltons, Virginia, a unique and beautiful sound was born. It was a sound full of harmonies so close and sweet that they could only be connected by the blood of family. The sound produced words and songs that are full of hope and new life, words that point others to Jesus Christ. This sound became the music and ministry of The Browders, a family group that is rapidly gaining recognition and admiration in gospel music.

The Browders

The Browders

Tommy Browder, patriarch and founder of The Browders, grew up singing and writing gospel songs from a very early age. As an adult, he felt God leading him to start a ministry. “He felt the call to minister with his family. He prayed about it and God showed him what to do. We began singing in 1990,” says son Matt. “Actually, it all started in a 1990 Dodge Omni!”

Browders Land Fifth Number One From Time Machine Project

Written by Staff on September 28, 2015 – 2:27 pm -



Title Cut “Time Machine” Sixth Consecutive Number One

Hiltons, Virginia (September 25, 2015) Claiming the #1 spot on both the Absolutely Gospel Music Weekly Chart and the Singing News Monthly Chart for the title cut from their latest CD Time Machine, the Browders are living up to their name as a group who consistently produces number one songs.

Sitting at the number one spot for four consecutive weeks on the Absolutely Gospel Music Weekly Chart and landing at the number one spot for the month of November in the Singing News Monthly chart, “Time Machine” is a song straying from their usual Southern Gospel format, but still strong enough to climb to the top of both charts. Perhaps it’s because the message of the song is so strong, encouraging us to remember that we cannot go back in a time machine and we need to love our kids and family now and do what we are going to do for Jesus now, before our time runs out.

the browdersLead singer for the group, Matthew Browder commented, “The overwhelming support we have received in radio the last few years has been nothing short of miraculous. We are thankful for His favor on our lives and ministry.”

In addition to the success of their songs, the Browders are pleased to announce the addition of a live band now traveling with them. Sonya Browder has already been playing the keyboard on select song as well as Matthew, David, and Tommy Browder playing guitars on select songs now the addition of Burton Ludwig playing electric and acoustic guitar andDerek Cress on drums, they are displaying a full band and the sound is terrific.

Sonya stated, “For many years, we have had the desire to carry a full band on the road, but knew it would have to be in the Lord’s will and timing. Among the four of us, we already had acoustic lead, rhythm guitar, bass, and keyboard. So the addition of drums and electric lead is just the icing on the cake. It has given us the flexibility of playing songs completely live, and in the coming months, you will see us do even more of that.”

Burton Ludwig is 23 years old and Sonya’s brother, hailing from the great state of Maine. He started spending the summers with Matt and Sonya in Tennessee when he was just 15 years old. He would go on the road with The Browders, carrying equipment and help in any way he could. The summer he was almost 17, just before he went back home, Matt and Tommy showed him a few chords on the guitar. By the time he came back down the next summer, he had advanced tremendously and they found out he had been practicing nearly every day, teaching himself by watching YouTube videos. When he graduated high school, he joined the Browders full-time, for about 3 years. He took a year’s sabbatical to spend time with his mom and dad (who are nearly 80) back in Maine, but is now back on the road, more sure of his calling now than ever before.

Sonya Browder

Matt said “Burton joyfully did the menial tasks of loading equipment in and out and assisting us in any way he could for several years. I believe God saw his effort and heart and has gifted him and promoted him for his humble service. We’re thrilled he is part of the team.”

Derek Cress is 25 years old and has been in full-time ministry for over 5 years with an evangelistic team and Christian theater in our local area of Kingsport, TN. While the Browders were praying about adding a full-time drummer to their band, they had no idea that God was also speaking to Derek about taking his talent on the road. He contacted David Browder via Facebook stating that fact, and within a few months, he joined the group. He came highly recommended by the ministry he was formerly with and you can see why. He has a servant’s heart, and a genuine love for the Lord, as well as an undeniable calling.

Patriarch of the group, Tommy Browder added, “We are thrilled he is part of the team and it already feels like he’s one of the family.”

Browders Earn First Dove Award Nomination

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on August 21, 2014 – 11:30 pm -




Nashville, TN (August 18, 2014) Excited probably doesn’t say it best, but that’s the word to use for how the Browders reacted to the news of gaining their first Dove Award nomination at the GMA Press Conference in Nashville at Lipscomb University on August 13th.

Their hit song, “Lift Up His Name” penned by Matthew Browder received a nomination for Inspirational Song of the Year.

Matthew Browder stated “In our journey of making music, I find The Lord periodically places signs in our path to remind us that our labor is not in vain and that He sees us. It often comes from a person who shares that they have been encouraged or introduced to Christ through our music and ministry. Today it comes through our first Dove Award nomination. We are thankful beyond words for this great honor and praise God for His goodness to us.”

The Browders have attained number one status on most of the Southern Gospel charts with two songs from their most current CD ‘Time Machine’ and they achieved five number one songs on their previous project ‘The Message.’

Daywind President Ed Leonard commented “The nominated song ‘Lift Up His Name’ is an amazing song that sounds different from anything else. I am so glad the Browders received recognition for this groundbreaking song.”

The Browders sing a wonderful mixture of styles and songs, many of them written themselves. This first Dove Award nomination puts them another rung higher on the ladder they are climbing to reach their ultimate goal of reaching more people with the Good News of the Gospel of Christ.
