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.

This fan award recognizes the rising popularity of this group which now has back-to-back top 20 radio singles. Their new release, “I Was Blind, But Now I See,” written by Rodney Griffin, songwriter of the year, is #7 on the Singing News Top 80 and #4 on the SGN Scoops radio charts.

The Hyssongs, who began singing gospel music full-time in 2002, travel throughout the U. S. and Canada performing over 250 concerts per year.

Another honor bestowed on the group was a main stage appearance at the National Quartet Convention in Pigeon Forge, TN. This past September they performed their hit song to an audience of approximately 12,000 people.

Dell Hyssong, the baritone and founder of the group, when asked about their recent radio success said, “Our family is humbled that so many stations continue to play our music for the fans to enjoy. When we stepped out in faith to go into a full-time music ministry, we just wanted to make a difference and reach people for Jesus Christ.” Asked to comment on the award, tenor, Richard Hyssong said, “We were blown away when the presenters called our name. The fans, whom we consider our friends, have been so supportive of us on the road. We cannot thank them enough for voting for us. There are many other gifted trios – we are honored to be among such great groups.”
