SGN Scoops’ Fast Five with Glad Heart


Welcome to SGN Scoops’ Fast Five! This is where we ask an artist to answer five questions about themselves and then we all get to learn a little more about them.

Today we talked to Glad Heart from Nashville. This mixed family trio has only been travelling for two years and already has a radio single that has found its way to the charts. “God’s Got A Plan” is currently number 17 on the monthly chart of . These folks come by their Country sound honestly as they live on a farm and look after horses.
Meet the family behind Glad Heart in this edition of Fast Five!

SGN: Please introduce Glad Heart to us.
GH: GladHeart is a family group based out of the Nashville, TN area. We are dedicated to spreading the message of Jesus through our songs and ministry. The vocalists of our group are John Dorris (dad), Sonya Dorris (mom), and our 12-year-old daughter, Macy Jo. Our son, Nick, runs our sound/video, and also manages our social media. Zack, our son who is 14, is our #1 roadie! Zack also plays guitar and drums. In addition to singing, Macy also plays guitar and mandolin. GladHeart has a Country Gospel sound. We also enjoy throwing some good ol’ Southern Gospel into our mix of songs.The group as it is today has been together for about two years. We love traveling as a family wherever the Lord leads us.
SGN: Tell us about your radio single.
GH: Our new project, God’s Got A Plan, was recorded with Daywind Records. “God’s Got A Plan,” off of that project, is our radio single. This song features Macy Jo. As Christians we are continually searching to know our purpose in life. Be assured that God has a plan for each of our lives no matter if you are old or young. The song talks about that no matter what your situation is, God is aware and He has a plan. We must keep praising Him. As the song says: “God is good. He is King!”

Our name comes from the bible verse Acts 2:26 “Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; …”
SGN: When traveling, where is the group’s favorite place to eat?
GH: We like finding local “mom-n-pop” restaurants wherever we travel. If it is up to Macy, it will be Mexican food everytime!
