Fox News And Kelly Wright

Nashville, TN (August 29, 2017) The Williamsons recently finished up an East coast tour that took them to New Jersey and Pennsylvania. During their trip they had a few days off between concert appearances. The award- winning group spent time sightseeing in New York City. While in NYC they visited Time Square, the 9/11 Memorial, Chinatown, Little Italy and more. But, the highlight of their time in the Big Apple was getting to be the guest at Fox News.

At the National Quartet Convention in 2016, Darin Hebert formed a friendship with Fox News anchor Kelly Wright. Known primarily for his time on Fox News, Kelly Wright is also a Gospel singer and minister. Darin told Kelly they were in NYC and Kelly said, “I work Monday night. Come on over and I’ll show you around!” Kelly showed them around the Fox News campus, including various broadcast studios. “We were able to meet a few news contributors and Jesse Waters waved to us as he was running to do “The Five,” stated Donnie Williamson.

That was all it took and we are now planning a Williamsons/Kelly Wright week in the Sooner State – hopefully in the spring of 2018. We want to thank Kelly Wright and Fox News for being so gracious and showing us a wonderful time,” added Donnie.

Attorney General John Ashcroft, as well as Fox New Correspondent, Kelly Wright.

The National Quartet Convention, which first began in 1957 in Memphis, TN, offers fans of Southern Gospel Music the convenience of seeing and hearing their favorite groups at a single event, as well as meeting those favorites, purchasing their music, videos and much more at any one of the 500 exhibit booths which span throughout 175,000 square feet.
