Last night, the family played a unique 30-minute set on the Grand Ole Opry followed by a special gathering of friends and industry leaders in support of the Friday release of The American Face, produced by Bryan Sutton, Ben Isaacs and The Isaacs.
The multi-GRAMMY-nominated Dove Award-winning The Isaacs, members of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, were surprised on stage at the Grand Ole Opry tonight by Opry member Ricky Skaggs with an invitation to become official Opry members. The group will be formally inducted into the Opry family on Tuesday, September 14.
Sonya Isaacs says, “We are so honored to receive this nomination for our songs for the times album. We recorded this album last year mostly out of need. Need to stay connected with our locked home fans; need to encourage them and ourselves during the strange wilderness we were all walking through, and need to fulfill our calling during a time when we couldn’t pull the bus out of the driveway. Our fans helped pick the songs and helped us virtually record this album. We hope they feel included in this nomination and proud to have been a part of something that helped us all get through a very difficult season.”
The Isaacs have won 7 GMA Dove Awards, IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) and have several GRAMMY nominations for their past two previous projects. From the stages of the Grand Ole Opry to Carnegie Hall, this respected and popular group tours over 100 dates a year and helps fund numerous missions through The Isaacs Foundation.
