Beyond The Song: Eagle's Wings sing ‘When I Close My Eyes"

Eagle’s Wings

For this edition of Beyond the Song, Jantina de Haan-Baksteen reached out to Eagle’s Wings to talk about their single, “When I Close My Eyes.”  Darryle Wilson of Eagle’s Wings agreed to join her for this interview.

1. Please introduce yourselves to the readers of SGNScoops for those who have never heard about you before.

Eagle’s Wings consists mostly of family members. Debbi and I (Darryle) have been married 46 years (as of June 15.) I sing and play the bass.  Matthew Wilson (our son) sings and plays the guitar, mandolin, and dobro. Kevin Chambers sings and plays guitar, mandolin, and bass. Jacob Patterson plays the banjo, mandolin, and bass. 

Beyond The Song: Eagle's Wings sing ‘When I Close My Eyes" 2. I believe you had a recent No. 1 song on the charts, was that ‘He Hung the Moon’?

Actually “If He Hung the Moon” only went to No. 2, I think. We did have a No. 1 with “King Jesus” back in November, 2018. 

 

3. You have a rich musical background, can you share something about that?

Debbi and I sang together in a country band before getting married. We got married in 1973, got in church in 1979. I rededicated my life to the Lord, Debbi got saved, then her sister, mom, and dad got saved. They had only done country music, but had a desire to sing in church. Her dad, Floyd “Bill” Busby, wrote three songs, one of which will be on our newest project. 

Beyond The Song: Eagle's Wings sing ‘When I Close My Eyes" 3. Darryle is the writer of this beautiful new song, “When I Close My Eyes.” For those who believe the message, we hardly need an explanaition. But to those who haven’t commited their lives to Jesus, it’s a serious message. Can you tell us what the song says?

The song actually reaffirms the fact that we all have an appointment with death, but for the Christian, it’s only going to get better when we close our eyes here. “Pain is a stranger, there’ll be no danger, it’s glory forevermore.” Because God holds the appointment book, we just need to be ready. 

 

4. Do you write most of the songs yourselves?

In fact, our current project will be nothing but originals. However we like throwing a little (blue) grass seed on a Southern gospel song, just to see if we can get the grass to grow.

Beyond The Song: Eagle's Wings sing ‘When I Close My Eyes" 5. Is there anything more you’d like the readers to know?

In July, 2012, because of scoliosis, I went into complete respiratory failure and was placed on a ventilator. The doctor had told Debbi and Matthew that I would never preach or sing again and, that if I lived, I would probably be bedridden and on a respirator for the rest of my life. They were not given much hope. But, after a week, on my 65th birthday, I was off the ventilator and breathing on my own. God raised me up, and after three weeks in the nursing home for rehab, I went home. I returned to my pulpit on September 2, 2012, where I’ve been ever since. 

6. What is ahead for Eagle’s Wings in the near future?

As far as the future – we have no clue. We just leave that up to God. We would like to add another musician, if God allows. We just pray for open doors and the good sense to walk through them when He shows us one. 

7. What is the road routine of each member of the group?

Our families travel with us. Matthew’s wife, Jennifer runs our product table. They have two daughters, Anna and Emma. 

Kevin’s wife, Rhonda, runs our sound. They have one son named Jonathan. 

We don’t have a bus. We travel in four separate vehicles. We just make sure everyone has the correct address and hope we all show up at the right time and place. 

8. Where can readers find you on the internet?

Each member has an individual Facebook page, except me. The group also has a page.

Thank you so much, Darryle, for your time and for allowing us a sneak peak into what happens with Eagle’s Wings.

The SGNScoops’ team wish you God’s blessing and safe travels for all the miles ahead.

Vernon Alabama’s Gospel Music Weekend- “Spotlight Artist”- Eagle’s Wings

Written by scoopsnews on April 17, 2019 – 11:50 am -

Eagle’s Wings Returns To Southern Gospel Weekend 2018

Eagle’s Wings

Meet the Spotlight Artist of the Week for Vernon, Alabama’s Gospel Music Weekend.

Eagle’s Wings is a Bluegrass/Southern Gospel band that hails from Jasper, Alabama. The group consists of members DarryleWilson, Debra Wilson, Matthew Wilson, Kevin Chambers, and Jacob Patterson.

Originally conceived as an acoustic, Southern Gospel band with the intention of doing standard Southern Gospel songs with an acoustic flair, they soon added a banjo to the mix and from then on, they were considered a Bluegrass group.

The band first performed in 2008 under a different name which they soon changed to Eagle’s Wings, based off of Debra Wilson’s life verse, found in Isaiah 40:31

Soon, after forming, they decided they didn’t want to only do covers of songs, and the band began to write and perform their own songs.

Career highlights include winning a showcase at NQC and getting to perform on mainstage as well as getting to open for some of their favorite groups like, The Isaacs and Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver.

They’ve recently had their first #1 song in the Singing News Bluegrass Charts with their version of “King Jesus”,  promoted by Hey Y’all Media.

“Our main goal is to see souls saved, and spirits lifted, but also to see toes tapping and hands clapping”, states Matt Wilson of the group.

Here is a poster with a complete lineup of Artists for the event.

Eagle’s Wings Return To Southern Gospel Weekend

Written by scoopsnews on March 16, 2019 – 2:23 pm -

Eagle’s Wings is a Bluegrass/Southern Gospel band that hails from Jasper, Ala. The group consists of members Darryle Wilson, Debbi Wilson, Matt Wilson, Kevin Chambers and Jacob Patterson.

Darryle and Debbi performed secular music before they became Christians and then formed the group, Family Circle. In 2008, this band began performing under the name of Eagle’s Wings. If you like Bluegrass family harmony, you will love Eagle’s Wings.

Darryle is the patriarch of the group and has always been involved in music. He grew up in the church where his dad was a deacon and his mother was the head of the women’s group. He was involved in music in high school and college and was faithful to the church until he went to college and got out of the habit of going to church.

Darryl married Debbi Busby, and they got involved in Country Music until 1979. After many visits from a member of the local church where they lived, he rededicated his life to the Lord, and about a month later, Debbi did the same. That is when they began attending church and started singing Gospel Music.
Come hear this awesome group at SGW 2019!

Hey Pastor Darryle Wilson, What is The Message?

Written by scoopsnews on December 28, 2018 – 4:20 pm -

We are all about to be handed something very special , a “brand, spanking-new” New Year. What we do with it is really up to us.

Many churches are preparing for their New Years services. We asked a few pastors what they believe the message for 2019 is. 

Here is what Darryle Wilson, Paster at Central Baptist in Jasper, Alabama had to say. You may also recognize Darryle from the Award winning Bluegrass Group, Eagle’s Wings.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6

   In a world that is confused and questioning all aspects of religion, we at Central Baptist Church in Jasper, AL, stand firm on God’s Word and especially on the words of the Lord Jesus, Himself.  He erases all doubt as to how to get to Heaven; you must trust in, have faith in, and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your only Savior. 

   All else fails.

   In the new year, 2019, may the name of Jesus be exalted above all, so that the lost can be saved, and saints encouraged. 

Join us each Sunday at 9:45 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., and each Wednesday at 7:00. 

We are located at 

900 Airport Road South

Jasper, AL.

Thank you brother Darryle for sharing with us at SGN Scoops!
