Cancellation of Southern Gospel Weekend

Written by Staff on March 16, 2020 – 10:49 am -

Cancellation of Southern Gospel Weekend 2020Oxford, Alabama (March 16, 2020) — As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread in communities across Alabama and the United States, we have made the difficult but important decision to cancel the upcoming Southern Gospel Weekend, to be held in Oxford, Alabama, March 19-21, 2020.

Donnie Williamson, Vonda Armstrong, and Rob Patz, the SGW board, know the importance of having a faith-filled and encouraging family event at this time. However, the health and well-being of attendees and artists are paramount during this pandemic.

The Southern Gospel Weekend board will reschedule this event at the first opportunity when it is safe to do so. We hope and pray that each and every one of you remain safe and healthy during this unprecedented time of sickness and trial.

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”Psalms 91:1 NIVUK

We pray you find peace and strength I  knowing that Jesus Christ is your rock and your salvation.

Thank you for your continued support.

Eagle’s Wings Return To Southern Gospel Weekend 2018

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on November 21, 2017 – 12:28 pm -

Eagle’s Wings Returns To Southern Gospel Weekend 2018

Eagle’s Wings Returns To Southern Gospel Weekend 2018

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 2018!
