Southern Gospel Weekend

MGM

Creekside Gospel Music Convention

Vernon Alabama Welcomes The Hinsons and Others…

Written by scoopsnews on September 7, 2016 – 4:12 am -


I believe that anyone who has ever followed Southern Gospel music will recall the legendary family group, the Hinsons. Originally from California, the group consisted of siblings Ronny, Yvonne, Larry and Kenny. This dynamic group has remained a mentor and musical influence for countless artists. Songs such as “The Lighthouse” and “Call Me Gone,” cannot be heard without the unforgettable Kenny Hinson crossing your mind. Kenny graduated to his heavenly reward July of 1995, at the young age of 41, after fighting a battle with cancer. Kenny not only left a wife and two children behind, but a legacy.

Picking up the mantle that has been left to him is Kenny’s son, Weston Hinson. He began his singing adventures around age 12. Weston led worship for his youth group before his solo ministry commenced at age 20. In August of 2010, he and Christy hit the stages as a duo. They traveled under the name Weston and Christy Hinson for several years. Two years ago, they added Jordan and recently changed their name over to The Hinson Family.

This coming weekend, they will be singing in Vernon, Alabama at Gospel Music Weekend.

FUN FACT FRIDAY with the Freemans on SGN Scoops

Written by Staff on September 4, 2015 – 6:52 am -

Freemans 2015

Freemans 2015

 

We have made it another week. Only 58 days until Creekside 2015! One of our fabulous artists who are joining us on Nov 2-5 is the Freemans. They are Diamond Award winners and chart-toppers, with wonderful Country-Southern-Progressive vocals. You will want to come to Pigeon Forge, TN for this group alone!

This week I got an inside look of memories and road life with The Freemans. Check it out…

Q: What is your favorite singing memory?
Chris: “I have been singing too many years for me to go back and try to single out a favorite moment, but one that definitely stands out in my mind is the first time I won The Queen of Gospel Music.”
Darrell: “My favorite memory was performing in The Dominican Republic at the school in the inner city. They were the loudest crowd ever for the number. They were hungry for gospel music.”
Joe: “My favorite singing memory was recently, in Branson, when the fantastic crowd we had on the Branson Belle at the end of the concert stood and clapped forever. It made the whole group and I feel so wonderful. It was priceless! We sang, “Lead Me Home,” and so many people left with joy restored and peace; knowing that their loved ones were in a better place.”
Misty: “My favorite singing memory is the first week I brought Addie on the road. She wouldn’t let anyone else hold her and I had to do all the concerts with her in my arms.”
Caylon: “My favorite singing memory was the first ‘Legends on the Sea’ cruise, and being able to have fun and perform with some of the most talented artists in the world.”

Q: What is your favorite pasttime while on the road?
Chris: “I read a lot, as well as make bracelets and play games. I got hooked on that when Caylon was very young. We would play Mario for hours on the bus just to keep him entertained. He would pat me on the back and tell me I was the greatest mom in the world because I played Mario with him. I might add that I was GREAT at it, Lol!”
Darrell: “I get up a little late during road time. I look for lunch or breakfast, watch a little TV and then get ready for business for the King. I always can’t wait!”
Joe: “The other one is a hard one, because I am usually driving. If I am not driving, I am in the buddy seat looking out enjoying God’s creation.”
Misty: “I like to read during my down time on the bus.”
Caylon: “My favorite pasttime on the road is reading. I have read countless books over 14 years while on the road.”
