The Browns en
The Browns were an American country and folk music vocal trio best known for their 1959 Grammy-nominated hit, "The Three Bells". The group, composed of Jim Ed Brown and his sisters Maxine and Bonnie Brown, had a close, smooth harmony characteristic of the Nashville sound, though their music also combined elements of folk and pop. They disbanded in 1967. [ - ]
- It’s truly a family affair when the Browns hit the stage with their gospel music. The four-voice musical styling of Shelly, Michaela, Adam and Andrew 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 intitled “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.
