June 19, 2012 (PASADENA, TX) – The Harris Family released the second song from their Created to Worship project just one week ago, and today it sits at the top spot of the Radio Music Week Top 100 Southern Gospel ChartOnly You Can Wear The Crown, written by Clay Winskie and Neil Dumas, is the second consecutive #1 from this album. Members of the group would like to extend a special thank you to the DJ’s and Program Directors for their warm reception to the album and especially to this song. “This was one of those songs that just captured our hearts from the very first time we heard it,” says Sue Harris of the group. “We were hopeful that the song would have a similar impact on others, and it has! To watch those in our audience connect with this song and join us in a spirit of true worship is an unexplainable blessing to us.”

Charles Brady, of Radioactive Airplay adds, “This is a powerful and worshipful song that you could easily confuse as a song coming from a top tier group, but I believe that God put it into the hands of the group that was supposed to have it. It has quickly become a radio top pick and from what I know about The Harris Family, it defines and demonstrates the real passion for worship and love for the Lord that this family has. Producer Art Bain, did a stellar job of arranging and producing every single song on this Created to Worship project. It is simply incredible!”

Sue says she has to agree with Charles’ comments about what a great song it is. “We knew that God’s hand of blessing was upon us when this song landed in our inbox from Chris Binion, the publisher of the song. Songs like this do not always make their way into the hands of groups like The Harris Family. Chris has been a true friend to this ministry and he has never held out on us in order to put a song into the hands of a group that would no doubt sell more CDs or earn him more royalties through radio play. He just shares what he has and allows God to take care of the rest. I respect him so much for that. And not to change the subject, but Kristen, who is featured on this song, simply hit the vocal out of the park! I honestly don’t think you could find a singer out there who could sing it any better than she does. Some songs just ‘fit’ us, and this one is right in her wheelhouse!”

The Harris Family consists of Roger and Sue Harris, and their daughter, Kristen Harris Johnson. They make their home in Pasadena, Texas and have been singing Southern Gospel music since 2003.

A New Album, Along With a New Radio Single from The Harris Family

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on March 11, 2012 – 6:12 pm -

(PASADENA, TX)The Harris Family is celebrating the release of a brand new album. Created to Worship is the 5thstudio recording from this Texas based family group, who traveled to South Carolina to work with their trusted friend and long-time music producer, Art Bain, who says, “As a producer, working with the Harris Family is PURE JOY! These folks truly have an understanding of what music is supposed to sound like . . . they are expert at harmony and great arrangements.”

Group members Sue Harris and Kristen Harris Johnson penned six of the twelve songs on this recording. Other songs include one cover song, originally recorded in 2001 by the then popular Contemporary Christian group FFH, as well as five songs written by some of the most respected writers in Christian music today. The title for the project was taken from a song written by Chris Allman, I Was Created to Worship the Lord, which happens to be the group’s first radio single from the project. That song, being distributed through Radioactive Airplay, scored the number 1 spot on the Radio Music Week Top 100 Southern Gospel Music Chart in it’s first week. Charles Brady, President and Founder of Caraway Media Group, the parent company of Radioactive Airplay says, “Radio loves the Harris Family and this newest Harris Family project is already encouraging radio listeners around the world. Incredible songwriting, wonderful musical arrangements and beautiful family harmony all come together with a passion for worship that really sets this project apart!”

In addition to writing and selecting songs with a solid lyrical content, this group is careful to make sure the style and arrangements of their songs are fresh and modern. “We have learned the importance of connecting with our audience when we are in a church service or concert event,” states Sue Harris of the group. “We do not want to simply perform. We want to engage our audience to worship with us. We want to sing songs that relate to them and reach them right where they are in life. God has placed us in the middle of a very diverse group of people. Not only do we sing in small churches where most everyone is already a Christian, but we also do concerts and lead worship in large churches and prisons.” Roger Harris adds, “I believe this project is our best mix of songs to date. These songs have ministered to me personally, and I hope they will minister to all ages young, old and in between.” Kristen Harris Johnson concludes, “The diversity of the songs on this project definitely match the diversity of our audience, yet they all share the same theme: Worship! Jesus Christ is truly the name above every name, and we hope these songs reflect that truth and bring glory to Him alone.”

The Harris Family consists of Roger and Sue Harris, and their daughter, Kristen. They make their home in Pasadena, Texas and have been singing Southern Gospel music since 2003.
