Sharps Chapel, TN, October 29, 2014--The Hyssongs, a gospel music group from Rockport, ME, have been named Top New Trio of 2014 by the Singing News. 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.”
