The Williamsons Involved In Bus Accident

The Williamsons Involved In Bus Accident

WELEETKA, Okla. – (January 31, 2017) – Multi-award winning mixed group The Williamsons were involved in a bus accident this past weekend. After singing at a church in Tippecanoe, Indiana on Sunday, January 29, 2017, The Williamsons were heading back to Nashville on Interstate 65 before being involved in the accident.

Despite the roads being mostly clear after a recent snow shower, about 30 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky, a Chevrolet Impala hit some black ice and spun around in the middle of the highway. When it first happened, an 18 wheeler in front of them blocked their view. He was able to move over into the other lane, but The Williamsons’ bus was not able to change lanes due to another truck directly beside them. They weren’t driving very fast, but still were not able to get the bus totally shut down because of the slick road conditions. As a result, the group’s bus broadsided the car and shoved it about 40 feet down the highway.

Group manager, Donnie Williamson stated,

“No one seemed to be hurt, praise the Lord! A man in the car was taken to the hospital, but it appeared that he was just shaken up. The driver had a bump on his head but didn’t even go to the hospital. No one on the bus suffered any injury. God is so good and his protective hand was on us.”

The impact shoved the frame of the bus inward a bit, and the door was unable to be opened. They were able to continue driving the bus to a repair shop in Springfield, Tennessee, at least getting that much of the damage repaired. The group is currently heading back to their home in Oklahoma. They are requesting that all of their friends keep them in prayer that they will make the right decisions on how to proceed with getting the rest of the repairs completed.

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, bless you, and entertain you all at the same time. Their primary desire is to share the Gospel in such a way that those in attendance who do not know Jesus Christ will come to know him before the program is over.

“This year, I will celebrate 40 years in Southern Gospel music. I do not have the vocabulary to express what my heart feels. I thank God everyday for both his mercies in my life, and what he has allowed me to do to share the Gospel. I absolutely love what I do!”

The moment I heard the news that “I’ve Been to the Well” made it into the Top 40, I began to cry,” said group member Sadie Renae Matthews.

“I feel so honored, blessed and grateful. I want to thank every person that has believed in and encouraged us, and continues to pray for us,”

Karen Peck and New River Makes Global Impact – Group Ministers In Honduras For First Time

For Immediate Release

Karen Peck and New River Makes Global Impact
Group Ministers In Honduras For First Time

DAHLONEGA, GA (December 7, 2016) Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning group Karen Peck & New River recently saw the impact of their ministry on a global level. The award-winning progressive Southern Gospel group received an invitation to perform in Honduras earlier this year.

A local businessman from Honduras invited Karen Peck and New River to come to Roatan to sing “Four Days Late”, the group’s career-making hit single, after hearing the song on the radio. The message of the song had touched his life along with so many from the island. The plan originally was to hold the concert out in the open air, but due to the rain, it was moved to a pavilion.

Karen commented, “This trip literally changed our lives. In all of the years that we have traveled, we have never been so blessed by an audience as we were from the people of Roatan. They sang along at the top of their lungs as we sang “Four Days Late” and “Special Love”. Tears began to flow as the Holy Spirit moved in those services. Needs were met and souls were saved. Thank the Lord for using that radio station to spread the Gospel in Roatan. We hope to travel back there again someday!”

The local residents gathered for hours in advance to hear the song they have loved hearing on the radio and listen to Karen Peck and New River sing it in person. The group also performed in a local church the following day. The group recently won two GMA Dove Awards for Southern Gospel Artist of the Year and their single “I Am Blessed” winning Southern Gospel Song of the Year. The group also took home two Diamond Awards last month, and this past April was awarded two Absolutely Gospel Music Awards.
This recent trip to Honduras capped off an already impressive year for the group. “Calling”, the current single from New River’s Dove Award-winning project Pray Now, hit the #1 spot on multiple industry charts. The project’s debut single, “Pray Now”, also reached the #1 spot on all the major charts in the Southern Gospel industry, including the Singing News Top 40 and AbsolutelyGospel.com Top 40 Weekly Chart.

The group is in the early planning stages for a new recording. It is tentatively scheduled for an early Spring 2017 release.

For Immediate Release

The Walkers Celebrate 25 Years of Full Time Music Ministry

Perry, Florida (December 6, 2016) On November 16, 2016, Tate Music Group recording artists The Walkers celebrated their 25th anniversary in gospel music. The Walkers started their journey that night in Dothan, Alabama and have been going strong ever since.

Group members at the time were Billy Walker, Sr., Geneva Walker and two of their children, Gail and Billy, Jr. Things stayed the same until an accident on the road took the life of Billy, Sr. On January 1, 1994 in Blacksburg, South Carolina, The Walkers bus filled with carbon monoxide affecting all of the group members and taking the life of Billy, Sr.

The family regrouped during this difficult time and held things together. Since the inception of The Walkers, they have grown their ministry from a small town group to a polished and professional product. In the early days, they traveled primarily in Florida and South Georgia but soon expanded to the southeastern United States. Today, they travel to 44 states coast to coast and internationally as well.

In celebration of this event, The Walkers have released their latest album, Legacy.

Group manager Billy Walker, Jr. talks about Legacy, “In my opinion, this is without doubt our best album yet, and I am hearing that from people who have bought the album at our concerts, on iTunes, and from our record company’s website. We had leaned a bit on the Christian country side and with great success on our last album, but on this album we are back home in southern gospel and it really shows.”

The first single off of Legacy is “God Of Promises.” The song is already getting great response as reported by Vonda Easley of Hey Y’all Media. It made its debut on SGN Scoops Top 100 at #84 and showed on the Singing News Top 200. With the showing in Scoops, it was the 5th consecutive charting song between Christian country and southern gospel for The Walkers.

Looking back on the last 25 years Billy says, “We have been blessed and fortunate to be able to do what we love for so long. It is the highest honor that God gave us a work to do and for all this time he has made a way time and again when it seemed that we would have to stop. From the tragedy of the bus accident that took my Dad to bus break downs and financial difficulties, God has been with us each step of the way.”

Poised for 25 more years, The Walkers are more excited today about their mission than ever before. If you would like to learn more about The Walkers visit www.thewalkersonline.com [1].

About Johnny Minick

Johnny Minick was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. He began his musical journey at the age of 3. Johnny’s parents enrolled him in piano lessons at age 6 where he began to study to be a classical pianist. Those years of classical training gave Johnny an important foundation for the artistry he now enjoys. In his teens, Johnny followed a familiar path that many other classically trained musicians follow; the road to jazz.

In August of 1974, Johnny and his sweetheart, Sherry McDonald married. In the Summer of 1975, Johnny and Sherry packed up and moved to become a part of The Happy Goodman Family. The next few years made an indelible mark on Johnny’s life and musical career. Even though he had founded River Of Life Church in 1992 in Smyrna, TN Johnny reunited with Howard & Vestal Goodman to revive the Happy Goodman brand. With the success of the Bill Gaither Homecoming videos and concerts, The Happy Goodmans found a platform to promote their music around the world. From 1995 through 2002, Johnny traveled 3 days a week singing to 1.3 million people per year attending their concerts from coast to coast and in Europe. At the same time, River Of Life continued growing and enjoying their new worship facility at their Sam Ridley Parkway location. The years with the Goodmans were productive and continues to bear fruit to this day. His relationship with Howard, Vestal, Rusty & Sam continued until their deaths.

In 2014, Johnny, Tanya Goodman Sykes and her husband Michael Sykes started singing together as Goodman Revival. In February of 2014 they went into the studio and recorded their debut project, “Songs In The Key Of Happy.” Spring House Music heard the recording and leased the project to be distributed through the Gaither Music Network and in October 2014 a companion video was produced at the Gaither Studios in Alexandria, IN.
