The Williamsons Top Off Amazing 2016 With Highly Successful Christmas Show and Tour

williamsonchristmas326WETUMKA, Okla (December 23, 2016) Multi-award winning Gospel group The Williamsons recently ended 2016 with a wonderfully busy holiday season. For several years, The Williamsons have produced a special Christmas program which has been performed as early as Thanksgiving night and finish the season as late as Christmas Eve. This year was no exception as the group closed out the year with a very successful tour and show to top off one of the group’s most favorable and rewarding runs since its inception.

Donnie Williamson stated, “Many of my friends take off the month of December. This time of year is always so busy with our own family functions and Gospel concerts seen to slow down. I decided several years ago to produce a Christmas show that would be fun for the whole family, while still sharing the glorious Gospel message. Believe me, it keeps us busy.”

williamsonchristmas2326The Christmas show features The Williamsons singing Christmas hymns, seasonal classics and also includes an occasional skit and comedy. The daughters of Donnie and Lisa, Sadie and Olivia, are also a big part of the night. The Williamsons perform as many as 15 programs in a three week span.

This year’s Christmas show tops off an already impressive year. The year 2016 brought about several award nominations as well as winning the Absolutely Gospel Music Award for the Traditional Song of the Year (“Shout”) and the SGN Scoops Diamond Awards for Song of the Year (“Shout”) and Album of the Year (Tell Somebody).

The group received nominations at the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards for Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year (for the hit single “Monday”) as well as Songwriter of the Year (Artist) for group lead vocalist and songwriter Lisa Williamson. In addition, the group was nominated for Favorite New Group in this year’s Singing News Fan Awards.

The Williamsons are currently finishing up a new hymns project that will be out the first quarter of 2017 and are writing and choosing new material for a mainline release also to be released next year. The group plans to start recording in Spring 2017.

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to AbsolutelyGospel.com. The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
