The Isaacs, a multi-award winning family group who began singing 35 years ago are based out of Hendersonville, TN.
They feel blessed to be able to travel and spread the message of hope and grace through song and story.
Way back when, this comment coupled with this article (hat tip, Martin) got me thinking about the Isaacs. Or instead did the Conventional Wisdom create a self-fulfilling myth about the Isaacs that was enabled by their affiliation with the Homecoming Tour but not supported by reality?
His hymns recording (Gaither Music Group/ Servant Records), debuted at #1 on the Nielsen Sound Scan Southern Gospel retail chart and became the top-selling southern gospel album of 2012.
Specifically, why didn’t or haven’t they left a more profound impression on the musical world? In this alleged age of the cross-over, poly-generic, stylistically diverse, mult-repurposeable artist, the Isaacs would seem to be or (in their heyday, which I sense has now passed) have been the perfect example from Christian Entertainment of artistic dexterity – a group able to gain and hold the attention of a sustainable portion of gospel, country, bluegrass, and some folk audiences and, with Gaither’s exposure, the inspo-anthem world. I honestly don’t know enough about the genres adjacent to sg in which the Isaacs work to speak authoritatively about this.
But while I wait for someone to speak up who can, my own sense has always been that Sonya (obviously) and Ben have pro-quality skills and talents (as did the quiet boyish looking guy who played banjo but left a while back) but that that talent wasn’t enough to give the group as a whole the star-quality appeal they would have needed to become the sort of artist’s artists who thrive – musically and economically – in the space between conventional approaches and styles.
He was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2014.
