have been around gosple music all my life i remember listening to the chuck wagon gang with my mom and lester flat and earl scuggs with my dad and loved every minute of it but when i heard kenny hinson sing for the first time it opened a door in my life that i didn't even know was there i always sang in the church choir and congregation but i was never so full of music in my life i wanted more so at the age of 15 i had an opritunity to audition in a little gospel group in my home town and the first question i ask them was do you know any hinson stuff and to my surprise that is exactly what style they were looking for so i was ready to load the bus and hit the road i was never so happy in my life i had finally found my place in the world and to think i may never have found my style of music with out kenny hinson he was truly a blessing from god i wll never forget him i am so thankful to him and all the hinsons for touching my life and introducing me to the music that changed my life

We are really big fans of the Hinsons and my bro in law just heard the original Hinsons singing "flying higher than I've ever been" on the radio and I think that song is actually by Dottie Rambo but I was just wondering if there was ever a cd made with them singing that song. If anyone knows will you please tell me the name of the cd. Thanks!

I would like to know if anyone has any pictures or videos of The Hinsons, from May through August of 1984. My name is Billy Ray Brown, and I sang with them during that time frame, and I don't have ANY pictures or videos of that wonderful adventure. Thank you :)

I was so in love with you Billy Ray Brown!
I was only 14 years old at that time! You came to Orange Hill Baptist Church in Austell, Ga. I think my mom does have pictures of us from that night! I know we took pictures with you...I will check. Where can I mail them or post them?

I grew up listening to the Hinsons. Do you know where I would be able to get some of their music?

The only people to every sing with the Hinsons was a man by the name of Billy Ray(he sang about four months) he sang between Eric and Bo. And Chris(Hawkins) Freeman. The Hinsons don't sing together much. They each have their own ministries.

In 1976?? I won a ticket from the radio to The Hinsons concert in Burnswick Ga.. I enjoyed the concert and also bought an album.You all were dressed in White & black I think the album cover had a Res Rose on it. My favorite songs on the album were Follow Your Heart & Look to Him. My mother which has passed away over 20 years ago heard the song, loved it so much we sang it at a church function.
I am from a large family(15) and we also used to sing as a family group. Through the years I lost the album and have been trying to find it all over but no luck. If you have information , where I can purchase that particular album,CD please email me back with this information. Thank You in advance,
