Anniversary Singing- The Akins

Since this year at our Anniversary singing we are having a couple of groups that you may have not heard perform yet, I thought it may be a good idea to go ahead and introduce them to you. It seems easier to warm up to new groups when you feel like you already know them.

I thought there would be no better place to start than with The Akins. This group is made up of the dad, David and sons Nick, Eli, and Dave. The most unique thing about this group besides being family is that they play all of their own music and also write all of their songs. Everywhere these guys go they manage to appeal to every age group that they minister too, but these guys have only just begun.

In July of 2008 they signed with Crossroads Records. They are two time Horizon Group of the Year nominees by Singing News Magazine, and have received multiple nominations at the Inspirational Country Music Awards including, “Entertainer of the Year,” “Vocal Group of the Year,” and “Christian Country Song of the Year”, and their biggest accolade to date is their recent #1 song on The Singing News Charts, “I Want My Stage to Be an Altar”.

Our good friend Diana Brantley over at attended two Akins concerts back on August, 5 and their first live video taping on August, 19. Each date is linked with her personal review of each concert. If you would like to read more about The Akins you can visit I hope you will make plans to attend our Anniversary Singing this year. On Friday November 12th you will be able to see these guys perform, I don’t think you’ll want to miss them……I promise.

Here’s my favorite Akins song to date, “I Want My Stage to Be an Altar”.
