This month’s featured artist is Autumn Isbell from Savannah, Tennessee, which is two hours southwest of Nashville. 


Youth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell FamilyAutumn is 17 and will be 18 in October. She has one younger brother, who is 16 years old. At the age of five, Autumn recorded her first solo album. 


She plays piano, guitar, mandolin, and ukulele, and she has been traveling and singing full-time with her family, the Isbell Family, for seven years. She sings mostly soprano for the group.


The talented young lady loves to decorate and says that she is also pretty good at ping pong. 


Youth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell FamilyTwo of her biggest inspirations in Southern gospel are the Collingsworth Family and 11th Hour. 


When asked what she would be doing if she was not singing, Autumn says, “Although it is very hard to imagine myself doing anything outside of music, I would probably consider pursuing a career in counseling.”


When she graduates from high school this year, she will plan on taking online college classes.


A day off of the road for Autumn normally consists of catching up on school, cleaning the house and maybe a shopping trip.

When asked what her funniest moment on stage has been, Autumn shared this … “At this particular concert, I had decided to wear a long skirt and high heels. As I was stepping up to sing, my skirt got caught underneath my heel, and I couldn’t move forward. So, I had to hurry and figure out a way to get my skirt out from under my heel without being too noticeable.”


Autumn’s parents had a trio with one of her mom’s friends for nine years. During that time, her parents were teaching her brother and herself to sing parts, so when her mom’s friend got married, Autumn and her brother stepped in. It has been that way ever since. 


The family performs approximately 250 concerts a year. 


“I know this is what God has called my family and I to do, and when someone is deeply touched by our songs, or even comes to know Christ through our music, it confirms that I am right where I’m supposed to be and doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing,” Autumn explains. 


Youth in Gospel: Autumn Isbell of the Isbell FamilyMiss Isbell concludes with a word to her peers: “God made you who you are, and He has a beautiful and unique plan for your life. Be yourself and be confident, just as the Lord intended.”

Chapel Valley Sharps Chapel, Tennessee – The Chapel Valley family of artists joined forces to produce an encouraging virtual choir ensemble singing “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands.”

This project features an arrangement composed by Shane Roark and accompanied by Michael Wayne Smith, Michael Shannon Shelby (Eternal Vision), Shawn, Will & Betty Porter (The Porter Family), Ann Downing, Sue Dodge, Autumn, Kaleb, Eric & Rachel Isbell (The Isbell Family), April Carol, Diana Perry Gillette & Nicole Matthews (The Perry Sisters), Judith, Graham & Megan Montgomery (The Judith Montgomery Family), Troy & Tammy Burns, Jacob Whisnant & Eric McNelly (Troy Burns Family) and Jack Allen (Messiah’s Call).

Shane Roark shared, “This has been a strange time for all of us, so this vision was born out of a desire to remind our family and friends that God is still in control. He has us in the palm of His hand and we stand united. This was a great way for us to come together and work on a project while social distancing, and we hope all who see and hear it will be encouraged by it.”
