theÂ WilliamsonsÂ are headed into a jam-packed summer after a breakthrough spring. Over the last few months theÂ WilliamsonsÂ have been nominated for awards in theÂ Singing News, SGN Scoops, Absolutely Gospel,Â and Christian Voice Magazine. They have been the Featured Artist Spotlight onÂ EnlightenÂ radio and were just recently a guest onÂ Singing News Radio. Throw in a full tour schedule and it’s obvious that they are being blessed by the Lord.
TheÂ WilliamsonsÂ have seen a surge in excitement and a growth in new fans over the last year. With three songs in theÂ Singing NewsÂ Top 40, two in the Top 5, and a #1 with “Shout,”Â the group is now seeing rewards for their success on radio. At theÂ Absolutely Gospel Awards, the mixed group was honored to bring home the “Song of the Year“ award. The WilliamsonsÂ are currently nominated in the Top 5 for theÂ Singing NewsÂ Favorite New Artist. This week, they received the news that they have been nominated for five awards in theÂ SGN Scoops Diamond Awards;Â Mixed Group of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Gospel Music Video of the Year, and Songwriter of the Year.Â These nominations come on the heels of being nominated in theÂ Christian Voice Magazine Southern Gospel Fan Awards forÂ Favorite Album and Favorite Video.
TheÂ WilliamsonsÂ are quick to remind people that while they are deeply honored by each award and each nomination, the reason they sing goes much farther than honors. Their hearts desire is to see the message of Christ touch lives all around the world.Â In June they will travel to Kenya on a missions trip.Â “We are so excited to help spread the love of Christ to the people of Kenya. We are looking forward to a life changing experience,” statedÂ Donnie Williamson.
Adding to all of this excitement, theÂ WilliamsonsÂ are currently in pre-production on a new Hymns and Favorites recording as well as finding songs for their next mainline project. “Their last album introduced this talented group to the fans of Gospel music in a big way. I believe the next album will secure their position as one of Gospel music’s top groups,” addedÂ Les Butler, President of Butler Music Group.
