Creekside Gospel Music Convention

“25 Days of Sharing” – Richard Hyssong

Written by scoopsnews on December 5, 2018 – 6:24 am -

December is a time for sharing. At Christmas, we (Christians) celebrate The Greatest Gift of All, Jesus Christ.

Over the next few weeks we will be talking with many industry leaders, artists, pastors, promoters, etc. and asking them questions.  They will “share” the answer to the question in 10 seconds or less. We are asking for their best advice on many different topics.

 

Question number 5 goes to Richard Hyssong Of The Hyssongs..

Richard, your family is from Maine? Some would say that’s a non-geographic “southern gospel” area. In other words, not a lot of southern gospel music in Maine. So, what advice would you give someone from an area like Maine that is wanting to get into singing gospel music?

Vonda Easley, SGN Scoops Magazine was there to present a plaque to the Hyssongs for their number one song in Scoops for July. The Hyssongs presented Vonda with a plaque for her company, Hey Ya’ll Media for help in promoting the song.

The Hyssongs

The Hyssongs have watched their latest album, Believe Me, be accepted and applauded by the Gospel music audience, taking three of their songs to the top 10 in the music charts. After 20 years, Dell, Susan and their son, Richard, say that hard work along with encouragement from Chapel Valley has boosted their sound up the charts.

The Hyssongs

Dell Hyssong

“The real reason for our recent recognition and success is God’s hand of blessing upon us,” says Richard. “We are humbled and thankful for all the ways the Lord has led us step by step.
“Radio has really embraced our family and our sound. Whether it is the brass that we use, the live strings, or the sounds of fiddle and steel guitar, they have accepted it all.”
It has been a year since Believe Me was released and reviewed by Randall Hamm in SGNScoops January 2016 issue. Hamm wrote, “Believe me, if you do not have a CD of the Hyssongs in your collection, this is the one to start with. It includes 10 great songs of faith, hope, love and belief, from the upbeat, ‘I’ve Got A Love,’ from the pen of Steve Dunlap and Russell Balway, that will you will be humming and singing long after the track ends; to the last track, the classic ‘The King Is Coming,’ that will have you saying, ‘Come quickly Lord.’”
