- Welcome to the official website of
The Hawkins Family!
- The Hawkins Family known by
two generations of Arkansas folks for their appearances at revivals,
benefits, concerts, singing conventions, homecomings, and county
fairs, continue to use music to share the true meaning of the
cross and the joys of a Christian life. They are lifetime residents
of Hot Springs and have been active in gospel music for over
50 years. Their reason for singing today is the same as when
they began to tell the world that Somebody loves them
and His name is Jesus.
For many years they produced weekly radio programs and summer
concerts at the Arlington Park in downtown Hot Springs. The group
has recorded many projects through the years. Today, they share
the warmth and sincerity of their desire to further the cause
of Christ by opening their peaceful home at Hickory Hill to all
who appreciate the beauty of voices lifted in praise.
- The group was awarded the
2008 LEGEND AWARD for their 50 years of gospel music ministry
by the Texas Gospel Music Artists Association. In addition to
their own website they are featured artists on other websites
which include HeavenSound and Gospel Gigs.

- Celebrated 50 Years
in Gospel Music
- on October 28,
- To read more about the celebration,
- What is Gospel Music?
- Gospel music is mostly written
by dedicated Christians who have a message to relate. These writers
and composers are people like you and I. They have trials, tribulations,
sorrow, disappointments, grief, and pain. They have laughter,
excitement, joy, peace, contentment, dreams, and fulfillment.
So you see these writers and composers are you and I with a message
to tell or to sing. I heard Jimmy Davis sing a song about his
memories, I heard the Hemphills sing about peace, I heard the
Blackwoods sing about a real God, I heard the Americans sing
about a dream, I even heard the Cathedrals sing about laughter.
Gospel music is about life and man's struggle to live it. So
sit back, relax, and enjoy God's great message to you and I...this
is Gospel Music.
