The Hoskins Family

The Hoskins Family

This is a story of “coming apart before one falls apart,” literally, and about how God has worked in every aspect of it all. It is a story of faithfulness to God and understanding the need to follow Him and obey His direction. It’s a story of courage and knowledge to know when to quit, and yet not give up. It’s a story of a family totally committed to doing God’s will and a beautiful story of a new beginning.
The beginning of this century introduced the Southern Gospel audience to the rich family harmony and exciting stage presence of the Hoskins Family. The family’s first Top Forty song was written by Angie Hoskins Aldridge and titled “Mission Of Love.” It came from a 1998 album by the same title. Their second album, Hope, in 2000, generated their first top five hit, “Joyful Morning,” which came in at number three, and as they say, the rest is history!
The Hoskins have always been a church-going family. When the church doors opened they were there. They sang in the choir, they taught Sunday School, they played the instruments and whatever else was necessary for services to be complete. They were the “Preacher’s Kids and Grandkids.”

Rick and Reva Hoskins have known no other way of life, but to serve God and sing. They have sung all their lives and naturally their daughter Angie inherited their talent. The three sang in the church where Reva’s parents pastored, until God opened their ministry to a wider audience by allowing their songs to be played on Gospel radio.
Following their introduction to mainstream Southern Gospel audiences through radio, they were immediately added to the larger venues in Southern Gospel. Churches of every size and denomination clamored for dates to have them in service.
After eight years on the road, in 2006 the Hoskins Family stopped touring and took a break from their music ministry. We recently caught up with Angie and talked about what the Lord has been doing with and for the group.

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.”

The Freemans perform at 2014 Diamond Awards

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.”

Pigeon Forge, TN, noted for it’s beautiful Smoky Mountains, family entertainment, and wholesome environment, is beginning to be known as the center of Southern Gospel Music so it’s appropriate to

Tribute Quartet Unveils Daywind Debut

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on August 25, 2014 – 11:15 pm -

Tribute Quartet

Tribute Quartet

HENDERSONVILLE, TN (Aug. 26, 2014) – The debut project by the Tribute Quartet as a Daywind recording artist is being released today, “Journey of Hope.”

Tribute is a male quartet comprised of group manager and lead singer Gary Casto, baritone singer and pianist Josh Singletary, tenor singer Riley Harrison Clark and bass singer Anthony Davis.

“Journey of Hope” was molded by the group’s long-time producer, Roger Talley.

“Journey of Hope” is a collection of songs that resound the constant truth of the hope we have when concluding our journey of life,” says Tribute manager and lead singer Gary Casto. “We are very thankful to Daywind Records and our producer, Roger Talley, for shaping this recording into the theme we so unashamedly sing about.”

“Journey of Hope” is an 11-song project that includes an award-winning cast of songwriters such as Kenna West, Lee Black, Michael Farren, Marcia Henry, Sue C. Smith, Kyla Rowland, Mary Funderburk, Caleb Collins, Dianne Wilkinson, Rebecca J. Peck, Terry Franklin, Barbara Franklin, Ricky Free and Tony Wood.

The group – which joined the Daywind family earlier this year – has produced top-charting hits such as “Homecoming Day,” “Homesick Angel” and “Good News From Jerusalem,” a No. 1 song.

“Tribute has been on a steady rise toward the top of the Southern Gospel

Music industry since its inception, and this recording will propel the group’s climb,’” explains Daywind president Ed Leonard. “With hit after hit already under its belt, we believe that the group has more chart-toppers to come on ‘Journey of Hope.’ Tribute Quartet delivers these songs with a sincerity and an energy that allows the wonderful messages in these great songs to come alive. We can’t wait to hear the reactions from the fans to what we believe is the group’s best effort yet.”

Daywind Records is home to an award-winning roster of artists, including The Browders, The Nelons, Greater Vision, Legacy Five, The Bowling Family, Joseph Habedank, The Hoskins Family and Wilburn & Wilburn. Daywind is distributed to retail through New Day Christian Distributors, Select-O-Hits, and all major digital outlets, including iTunes. For more information, visit www.daywindrecords.com  or contact Amanda Martin at publicity@daywind.com.

For more information on the group, visit Tribute Quartet’s web site at www.tributequartet.com.
