Changes For Wilburn & Wilburn

Changes For Wilburn & Wilburn

Gadsden, AL  – Chart-topping duo, Wilburn & Wilburn, has announced changes for the upcoming season.  Jordan Wilburn, one half of the father/son group, has decided to step back from an intensive tour schedule to focus on his young family.  His father and recent GMA Hall of Fame inductee, Jonathan Wilburn, will honor previously scheduled dates, and continue to travel as a solo artist.

“I have had the pleasure of enduring many changes in my career; nothing stays the same,” shares Jonathan Wilburn. “With every change, there is an opportunity to do something different and new. There is nothing like family. I enjoyed every minute traveling with my son for the past several years before it was time to enter into a new season. Jordan is spending some time off the road at home with his wife and two of my grandbabies! I hope to see all of you at one of my solo concerts in the near future, and I sincerely appreciate the love and support you have shown me through every transition.”

In support of his solo career, Jonathan Wilburn is currently in the studio working on a new release, entitled God & Country. The project is slated for a Fall 2017 release.

The group’s last release, Shoulders, has experienced remarkable success on the Singing News Radio Charts with three Top 2 singles, including #1 songs ‘You Asked Him To Leave’ and ‘It’s What He’s Done.’ They also experienced  #1 songs on AbsolutelyGospel.com’s weekly chart, including songs ‘Jesus Will’ and ‘You Asked Him To Leave.’

Wilburn and Wilburn have been honored with 2012 Breakthrough Artist of the Year and 2016 Country Album of the Year for Shoulders at the annual Absolutely Gospel Music Awards Celebration.

Wilburn & Wilburn Participate In Benefit Gospel Concert For Tornado Victims

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on June 5, 2014 – 11:49 am -

GADSDEN, AL (June 4, 2014) Father and son Gospel duo Jonathan and Jordan Wilburn spoke life into Mississippi’s Wilburntornado victims in a Gospel music concert on Saturday, May 31st. Several Gospel musicians came together and gave back to the community by offering their condolences through song.

Severe damage was witnessed in late April to parts of northeastern Mississippi. By way of extreme storms, tornadoes wreaked havoc and caused death and destruction. Heartbreak and grief blanketed the area like a dark cloud.

Gospel music is known for it’s ability to warm the souls of many. Through its touching lyrics and inspiring melodies, Gospel music can heal. Gospel musicians wanted to bring light to Tupelo, MS and surrounding areas by putting on a benefit concert as a memorial and fundraiser, reaching out to tornado victims and their families. Wilburn & Wilburn were one of the musicians highlighted at the concert.

“We wanted to bring light to the victims and families and all of those who were affected by the recent tragic events. Our hope was that people would come and listen to music and be blessed,” Jordan Wilburn said.

This isn’t the first time that Wilburn & Wilburn has brought aid to tornado victims through their talents. In 2011, when tornadoes devastated the state of Alabama, their home state, Wilburn & Wilburn used their gift of music to help bring healing and peace to a grief-stricken community.

“We saw the destruction that the tornadoes caused in Alabama, and because of that experience, we wanted to help in any way that we could to support Mississippi in their time of need,” Jonathan Wilburn said.

Although the concert was free and open to the public, donations were accepted and the money raised went to the CREATE Foundation for the Northeast Mississippi Tornado Relief Fund.

For more information about the concert, visit http://www.wtva.com/news/national/story/Gospel-concert-benefits-tornado-victims/F5nue5Xjw02t9RdJ-oKerA.cspx.
