Hey Donnie Williamson, What is The Message for 2019?

Written by scoopsnews on January 3, 2019 – 6:14 am -

 

Donnie Williamson

We asked Donnie Williamson (The Williamsons), What is  The Message for 2019 ?

Here’s what he had to say.

When Egypt was plagued with frogs Moses asked Pharoah when he would like him to get rid of them. You know what he said? TOMORROW (Ex. 8:10)!!! Why was he willing to spend one more day with those stinking frogs? They were all over the palace, on his table, in his bed -any place you could think of there was a frog! Why didn’t he say, “NOW”! This time of year we often tell of our “New Year’s Resolutions”. It seems like a good time to reboot and start over when often we are just spending unnecessary, additional time with frogs in our house. Why wait to put away those bad habits or attempt to start good ones? Why not get an early start and not spend “One More Night With the Frogs”?
Thanks Donnie for sharing with SGN Scoops.

Randall Hamm, music reviewer for SGNScoops Magazine, had this to say about the Williamsons latest project: “How do you follow your last project “Tell Somebody,” which gave the Williamsons their first No. 1 song, a top 10, and several top 30 songs? With another career project, “Give Them Jesus.” From start to finish, the Williamsons have created a masterpiece along with producers Les Butler and Donna King. This CD has no filler; all of the songs have a great message to convey to the listener. Their latest single is “Jesus, What a Wonderful Name” is moving quickly upward on the national charts. Following this single will be a tough call for the Williamsons… Donnie and the group (including Donnie’s wife, Lisa Williamson; Karl Rice and Darin Hebert) have once again crafted another solid CD.”

Here is a video of the Williamsons’ latest single, “Jesus, What a Wonderful Name:”

Gospel music artists appearing at Creekside Gospel Music Convention also include the Jordan Family Band, the Pine Ridge Boys, Mark209, Sunday Drive, the Hyssongs, Eagle’s Wings, the Chandlers, the Dunaways, and many more.

Special events include “Dr. Goff Honors Arthur Rice” on Monday, the 2018 Diamond Awards on Tuesday and many surprise appearances of more beloved artists on Wednesday and Thursday evening.

Third Annual WLOSGMH Convention March 27 and 28, 2017

WLOSGMH: “You Should’ve Been There” Memories in the Making!

Third Annual WLOSGMH Convention March 27 and 28

Third Annual WLOSGMH Convention March 27 and 28

I first became acquainted with gospel music as a child. It has kind of been in the family since I can remember. Momma Doris (my grandmother), Aunt Dolly Shirley and my Mom (playing piano too) sang in the Morning Star Trio every Sunday morning for the Morning Star Hour radio program on WATA Radio in Boone, NC. Pastor Ross Greene delivered the fiery message back in the day. Then I saw the Harvesters Quartet with Bill Hefner, Mac Evans, Don Norman, Jack Clark and Bob Thacker at homecoming. Over the years they became friends. And the music love affair began.

Sego Brothers and Naomi

I remember the first time I heard the Sego Brothers and Naomi. They were the feature group at the Singing at Grandfather Mountain hosted by Arthur Smith and the Crossroads Quartet. What a singing! What a crowd of artists and fans. I would stand and wonder what the groups were talking about behind their record tables.

Then we got a black and white TV. Sunday mornings on Charlotte’s WBTV we would see the legends of gospel music on the infamous Gospel Singing Jubilee hosted by the renowned Florida Boys. I remember sneaking into the living room and cutting the TV down really low and watching the Happy Goodmans, Dixie Echoes (loved me some Dale Shelnut), LeFevres, Segos, Rambos, Inspirations, Marksmen Qt, Hinsons and a host of other popular groups.

The Williamsons Top Off Amazing 2016 With Highly Successful Christmas Show and Tour

Written by scoopsnews on December 24, 2016 – 9:36 am -

 

WETUMKA, Okla (December 23, 2016) Multi-award winning Gospel group The Williamsons recently ended 2016 with a wonderfully busy holiday season. For several years, The Williamsons have produced a special Christmas program which has been performed as early as Thanksgiving night and finish the season as late as Christmas Eve. This year was no exception as the group closed out the year with a very successful tour and show to top off one of the group’s most favorable and rewarding runs since its inception.

Donnie Williamson stated, “Many of my friends take off the month of December. This time of year is always so busy with our own family functions and Gospel concerts seen to slow down. I decided several years ago to produce a Christmas show that would be fun for the whole family, while still sharing the glorious Gospel message. Believe me, it keeps us busy.”

The Christmas show features The Williamsons singing Christmas hymns, seasonal classics and also includes an occasional skit and comedy. The daughters of Donnie and Lisa, Sadie and Olivia, are also a big part of the night. The Williamsons perform as many as 15 programs in a three week span.

This year’s Christmas show tops off an already impressive year. The year 2016 brought about several award nominations as well as winning the Absolutely Gospel Music Award for the Traditional Song of the Year (“Shout”) and the SGN Scoops Diamond Awards for Song of the Year (“Shout”) and Album of the Year (Tell Somebody).

The group received nominations at the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards for Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year (for the hit single “Monday”) as well as Songwriter of the Year (Artist) for group lead vocalist and songwriter Lisa Williamson. In addition, the group was nominated for Favorite New Group in this year’s Singing News Fan Awards.

The Williamsons are currently finishing up a new hymns project that will be out the first quarter of 2017 and are writing and choosing new material for a mainline release also to be released next year. The group plans to start recording in Spring 2017.

About The Williamsons

The Williamsons began sharing the Gospel through music in 1998 as The Homesteaders Quartet. The dream of Donnie Williamson was to form a group to sing classic Gospel music on a limited basis. What he wanted to do never occurred. From the group’s onset their demand was overwhelming. Soon they were performing more than 100 dates a year. For the past several years The Williamsons have been in full time Christian ministry and entertainment and have traveled across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Their music has been in national charts and were they honored to be nominated for Breakthrough Artist and Favorite Group awards at the Absolutely Gospel Fan Awards. Absolutely Gospel also named them as one of the Top Ten Groups to Watch, as well as in the Top Ten for Best New Mixed Group in the Singing News Fan Awards.

Their high energy musical style appeals to people of all ages. The versatility of The Williamsons is evident through the wide variety of musical styles they perform. There is always something for everyone. The marketing of their performances targets families and not just fans of any particular type of music. Spending an evening with The Williamsons is sure to be one that will lift you up, and bless you.

Lisa Chesser Williamson Recovering From Surgery

Lisa Chesser Williamson Recovering From Surgery

Lisa Chesser Williamson
Recovering From Surgery

Nashville, TN – Last Saturday, Lisa Chesser-Williamson was taken to Phoenix Indian Medical Center with severe abdominal pain. Tests confirmed the appendicitis diagnosis and surgery was performed immediately.
Lisa is recovering well and is expected to be released from the hospital on Tuesday. “The support has been overwhelming. People have contacted us nonstop since we’ve been here. Prayers have been answered. The surgery went well. She is in pain but otherwise doing great! We haven’t missed any of our services. Our eleven year old daughter Sadie stepped up to the plate and filled her mother’s spot – and she did it very well might I add! She is already an amazing talent. I’m anxious to see what God has in store for her life,”  stated Donnie Williamson.
The Williamsons, based out of Oklahoma, are coming off a banner year that included numerous award nominations including Songwriter of the Year nominations for Lisa Chesser-Williamson. They were also honored with their first Singing News #1 song, “Shout.” Currently, their new hit song, “Monday,” is # 30 on the Singing News national charts.
