New Years Eve
Enjoy a memorable evening with the always hilarious Aaron Wilburn, the outstanding family harmonies of The Browns and so much more!Aaron Wilburn
Aaron Wilburn brings the house down with laughter... and he does it without four-letter words or making his audience feel uncomfortable.
A feature on the Gaither Homecoming Tour and videos, he has endeared himself to thousands of laughter-loving fans with his own down-home brand of humor, as he talks about his southern roots, his family, children and his faith. It's common to see a grandfather laughing along with his teen-agers and children. As Aaron says, "There is no generation gap with laughter."
Little would one expect that the same buy that brings people to tears with laughter also has written songs that have touched the lives of so many. His gift of songwriting has brought with it Dove Awards as well as Grammy nominations. In 2005 Aaron was honored by his home state as the Alabama Music Hall of Fame put an exhibit of his life and music on display in it's honored halls in the company of such notables as gospel singer Jake Hess and the queen of gospel music, Vestal Goodman. They are surrounded by the likes of Tammy Wynette, Lionel Richie and Percy Sledge just to name a few.
In 2005 David Johnson of the Alabama Music Hall of Fame named Aaron Wilburn the official host/MC of the future Alabama Music Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.
Whether he is on stage in an arena surrounded by 15,000 or in a banquet setting for a corporation or church, Aaron Wilburn is at home. If you tell him, "I loved your act", he'll probably tell you, "That's no act, that's who I am". And to borrow his famous three words, "He's funny!, bless his heart!"
Here's what has been said by Dr. Kristen Koehler, Director of Troy University's Davis Theatre: "Aaron Wilburn's show has been a real highlight of our season with our patrons at Troy University's Davis Theatre in Montgomery, Alabama. He truly is a wonderful story teller, and his songs were a big hit. We have had comedians on our season before who have received a standing ovation, but I have never heard our patrons calling out for an encore. He was a perfect fit for my audience. As several subscribers told me as they were leaving the theatre, he was just what we needed. We all needed to forget our troubles for a while. We needed some laughter to remind us that life is something to be enjoyed."The Browns
It's truly a family affair when The Browns hit the stage with their gospel music. The musical stylings of Shelly, Michaela, Adam, Andrew, Nick and Jessica exude excitement on the stage and offer a life-changing experience to all who hear them. The Browns deliver the powerful message of the gospel through word and song that engage audiences of all ages.
The Browns have been touring across the United States since the group began its full-time ministry ten years ago. The heralded group began on the local and state level and has expanded and grown into a national touring group.
This year The Browns received the prestigious honor of Top 10 Mixed Group of the Year for the second year in a row. "It started out with the Singing News magazine fans voting for the top ten," Michaela said. "We had no idea we were up for this ward until we got an e-mail to tell us. We were up with some wonderful groups. This honor is very rewarding coming from the fans and knowing that we've touched their hearts or ministered to them in some way." Previously The Browns had been awarded the Top Horizon Group of the Year for 3 consecutive years.
The group has finished their newest recording at the Sound Kitchen and Daywind Studios in Nashville, TN with Grammy award winning producer, Bubba Smith. A New Day will be the Browns 10th national CD release. The newest single on the album has just climbed to #25 on the national radio charts. It is written by group member Jessica, and her fiance, Nick Trammell entitled It's a God Thing.
Even when they're not on stage or on tour, the Browns manage to stay plenty busy on their farm property west of LeMars, Iowa, which has served to become somewhat of haven for the family away from the road. "We have to work a lot, cleaning and washing our bus," Adam said."We enjoy life at home. There's just something about being in the country. I've always enjoyed it." Andrew, the self-proclaimed life of the party, said touring on the road can get a little crazy, but he's been able to put things into perspective. "I'm thankful for what I'm doing," he said. "I think it's a special thing that we do." To add to the family experience, Shelly's husband Keith is the chief bus driver and sound technician. "It's definitely something that would be hard to do if you weren't called to it," Shelly said. "Because we know we're called, it's been worth it all. God has opened the doors and there are adventures and blessings behind each one."
From singing over 30 shows at the Americana Theatre in Branson, MO, to Dollywood Theme park stages, to singing on over seven Royal Carribean and Carnival cruise ships, this award winning family will inspire you with their close-knit family harmony and talent. The Browns love what they do, love each other, and the audiences to whom they sing.
