Jessica Horton and Vonda Easley

Jessica Horton

Singer / Songwriter

Jessica Horton is a singer/songwriter from Columbus, MS. She was raised in classic country and gospel, and the soul and sound of these classics often find their way into her music. Her songs feature the acoustic guitar, dobro, mandolin, and other roots instruments. On stage, Jessica brings a live aspect to her show by playing guitar and including singable old-time hymns and gospel songs. Off- stage, Jessica spends a lot of time with her husband, David and her church family. She serves as worship leader and youth director at Shaeffer’s Chapel United Methodist Church in Columbus, MS.

Jessica is originally from Eupora, MS, and she grew up singing classic country with her “Pop” Jess, starting when she was only 3 years old. He taught her guitar and piano, and they traveled to different schoolhouses, opry houses, festivals, and election events to perform. When he passed away, Jessica focused more on her classical studies as a music major at Mississippi University for Women, where she earned a degree as a soprano vocalist and music educator.

In 2018, with the encouragement of her husband, Jessica reached out to Dennis and Leslie McKay with M.A.C. Records in Columbus, MS. Shortly after, Jessica signed with the label and began working on her first single “Love Wins.” She released her second single, “Pictures” in November 2018, and it has already charted in Christian Country and gospel charts. These two songs will be on her project “Both Feet In,” due to be released in March 2019. You can find her singles on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Play and any other online music outlets.

Vonda Easley Armstrong, one of the  board members for the event, recently invited Jessica to be a guest on The a Strictly Southern Show in Heflin, Alabama at WPIL.  Vonda said, “Jessica is an uncommon talent. By that I mean, it’s not everyday you find an artist that no matter the style , she can sing it and sing  it well.  She radiates with Christ’s love when she sings and I can’t wait for the folks to meet her at Southern Gospel Weekend.”

Southern  Gospel Weekend  will take place March 21-23rd at  the Civic Center in Oxford, Alabama. The event will feature 25 other groups like New Ground, Josh and Ashley Franks, The Diplomats, The Williamsons, the Connells, ClearVision, Hope’s Journey and many more.

Call today to reserve a VIP Ticket or to inquire about the event. The number is 256-310-7892.

Trusting God When It Makes No Sense

Written by scoopsnews on February 10, 2018 – 5:56 am -

Weekend Word

“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” – 1 Corinthians 10:13

There is a wonderful Bible story that describes a much greater God. It’s the story of three Hebrew boys who refused to worship the idols of Nebuchadnezzar. Their response, “God can spare us from the fiery furnace; He has that power. But, even if He does not, we’ll never serve your gods or bow down to your statue.” They chose to trust God even when it made no earthly sense to do so. And God came through for them, Remember?
God will never take us through a trial that is too hard for us to deal with. No matter how difficult your trials, you can trust His promise. He will give us a way to endure it, to resist it, or to get through it. I’m sure folks made fun of the three boys as they do us sometimes today, but they trusted God. Are you trusting him with your trial today? You can! Even when it makes no earthly sense.

This weeks “Weekend Word” has been brought to you by Vonda Easley, Beautifully Broken. To book Vonda for your next Ladies event, 256-310-7892 or vondaeasley@gmail.com.

“Today’s Show was like no other”, states Vonda Easley, host of The Strictly Southern Show. Strictly Southern is a syndicated weekly program based out of Heflin, Alabama at WPIL 91.7 FM.

We asked Vonda what was different about the show. Here’s what she said:

”I wish I could tell you but all I know is God showed up and showed out. There was a time when I was squalling and couldn’t hold back. I found out today that God can show up anywhere, even in a tiny radio station in a tiny little town.”
