It was our first time to be a part of this Awards program, and we can say that it is one of the classiest programs we have ever seen.” Donnie continued saying "The response we received from our peers was very exciting. Most of them had not heard us before. Even the response after the program was overwhelming. Everyone was extremely encouraging".

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 to the Gospel Music Association for a Dove Award.
