I am completely overwhelmed at the response we are getting to our song, “It Was The Word.” We are so excited to have our very first top 20 song in the Singing News, and to see it climb to number two in the SGN Scoops Top 100 chart is just awesome! I really think listeners and deejays love to be reminded of what it was that brought all of us to our knees. It takes the Word of God and the sweet conviction of the Holy Spirit to change a life and that’s exactly what this song talks about! Lisa Williamson Of The Williamsons
“I knew, as I produced the new album for the Williamsons that they were about to enter a new season. Their heart for ministry, well, that was a strong as ever, but I knew that the whole world would soon be as aware that The Williamsons are the COMPLETE package; amazing hearts, awesome talent, real servants, and, they’d also find out that LISA is a singing and songwriting machine! I am so HAPPY for them and their #2!!!! Very deserved!” Donna King

Sharps Chapel, TN – The Hyssongs, who are Chapel Valley music artists, have had an exciting few years. In 2013 and 2014 they have been honored by being nominated for Top 5 New Trio by Singing News fans. This popular family group consists of Dell, Susan, and their son, Richard.
Their last four songs have charted in the Top 40 in the Singing News, including their release entitled “Thinking About Going Home”, which is currently #14 on the Singing News chart and #1 on the SGN Scoops Top 100 chart!
“Radio has really embraced our family and we are thrilled that our music is making a difference in people’s lives”, states Richard.
Recently, Chapel Valley Music presented The Hyssongs with a special plaque celebrating their first Top 20 song. “Our company is very proud of The Hyssongs success. We believe that the sky is the limit for this family”, quotes Shane Roark, Chapel Valley’s Co-Owner and Producer (pictured center left).
The family has just released a new song, written by Rodney Griffin, “I Was Blind, But Now I See”. The song came in at #8 on the Singing News Top New Releases for September.
They are looking forward to their first main stage appearance at the National Quartet Convention on Thursday night.
