Just south of Nashville, Music City USA is the deep rooted family tree of The Fox Brothers.  From a small crossroads community known as Bending Chestnut, Tennessee come the now world-famous Fox Brothers.

 

More than just country music, their wonderful family harmonies are combined with family values, country music, Christian Country Music, home spun humor and comedy, plus more than a million miles over the highways entertaining fans of all ages. 

 

To see The Fox Brothers in concert is to leave feeling uplifted with the wonderful music, the good times, and hilarious comedy that bursts forth from the stage at every show.  No two shows are ever the same when The Fox Brothers perform live.  The brotherly antics born from growing up in the ‘real country’ and the close family harmonies that have grown up with them from as far back as they can remember, make every show a special and unique time for all.  More than just country music, it’s an experience that will make everyone feel right at home with The Fox Brothers. 

 

Country music, humor, country gospel, huge laughs, Christian country music, along with expert musicianship barely begin to describe what is in store for you at a Fox Brothers’ concert. It is a time that no one can ever forget. 

 

Who had the biggest influence on the lives and career of the Fox Brothers?  “Our Daddy”, said Randy Fox, lead singer and one of the three blood brothers of the popular Nashville based Christian Country Music group, The Fox Brothers.

 

Randy’s answer is a simple, honest tribute to Lynn Gilbert Fox, Sr., who passed from this life in April 1998.  Behind his son’s answer is the story of an honest, hard-working dad who devoted his life to God; his family; and his work.  Be sure to enjoy the tribute to “Daddy Fox” which is accessible from The Fox Brothers’ main menu.

 

Recognized by many Nashville music industry officials as America’s number one Christian Country Music group, The Fox Brothers are a household name among Christian Country Music fans and fair and festival goers throughout the United States, making them a brightly shining star of Christian and country music.

 

That rising star catapulted in 1999 and 2000 when the group won three major awards from the Christian Country music industry.  In November, 1999, the group was presented the “Entertainer Of The Year” award by the Nashville-based Christian Country Music Association.

 

In November of 2000 and 2001, The Fox Brothers repeated their win as Entertainers Of The Year and were also presented the organization’s “Vocal Group Of The Year”, an award they received for a record eight years until 2007.

 

The Fox Brothers have also received awards from the Country Gospel Music Guild (CGMG), The International Country Gospel Music Association (ICGMA), and the United States Association Of Gospel Entertainers & Musicians (USAGEM). 

   

In 2010, Roy, Randy, and Lynn Fox hosted the televised 7th Annual USAGEM Awards where the Fox Brothers were presented the “Group Of The Year” award for the fourth time.  Roy Fox received the “Comedian Of The Year” trophy, an award he garnered for the second time.  The televised show has been aired several times on the Family Friendly Entertainment Network.

 

A full list of awards received year-by-year by the Fox Brothers and group members is accessible under “Awards” on the Fox Brothers’ main menu.

 

However, winning awards is only a small piece of their stardom puzzle.  Throughout their distinguished career, The Fox Brothers have performed extensively at fairs, festivals, and special events throughout the United States and Canada. 

 

The group’s appearances at the world-famous Grand Ole Opry have given them instant fame and credibility among country music fans worldwide.  “We are blessed every time we get to perform at the Opry”, said Lynn Fox.  “Every time my brothers and I get to perform on that stage, we are fulfilling our childhood dreams.”

 

In addition to their televised Grand Ole Opry appearances, The Fox Brothers have performed on numerous popular television shows including “Nashville Now” on The Nashville Network, and “Crook & Chase”.  The group has performed several times on the “ICM Awards”, a show sponsored by the Christian Country Music Association and televised live from the historic Ryman Auditorium. These shows have been aired on GAC, TCT, and other networks.  The Fox Brothers have also performed on “Sunday Mornin’ Country”, a show filmed for television and sponsored by the Music City Christian Fellowship (MCCF).  This annual event is held in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry House during the CMA Music Festival.

 

The Fox Brothers have produced several concept music videos including “Long As I Got You”, “If That Ain’t Love”, “Tending To Todd”, and “Squares”.  These videos have been featured on many television networks and shows that feature video programming.    

 

The Fox Brothers are best known for their hits “Tending To Todd”, “Squares”, “Red, White & Blue”, “Like Ol’ Hank” and “It’s Time For Love”.  The group has enjoyed many other number one Christian Country radio singles in the Christian Country and Country Gospel Music Charts including “Turn My Life Around”, Red Top Mountain”, “Cradle Of Love”, “Say It Now”, “He Broke The Law”, “Backslider’s Prayer”, “Yours”, “In This House”, “If That Ain’t Love”, and “Tell God Goodnight”.

 

Another aspect and appeal of the Fox Brothers is their clever humor.  Roy Fox evokes tons of laughter from audiences with his always glib, sometimes excited, occasionally befuddled character whose two favorite subjects are food and politics.  He bounces his off-the-wall, unconventional humor off his quick-witted straight man brother, Lynn Fox.

 

Roy Fox has garnered several awards for his comedy including the “Comedian Of The Year” trophy by The Country Gospel Music Guild in 1999; the “Comedy Act Of The Year” award from the Christian Country Music Association in 2002 and 2003; and the prize for “Comedian Of The Year” at the USAGEM Awards in 2009 and 2010.

 

“We love to travel around the United States and in Canada.  We also enjoy performing on television”, Roy said.  “We get to meet a lot of people who love music and life.  When we get to entertain them, that’s when we are at our happiest.”

 

Christian Country, Country Gospel, and the Country Music Industry would not be what it is today without the influence and dedicated music career of The Fox Brothers.

8th Annual USAGEM Awards

A Huge Success

Fox Brothers Hosts & Winners

 

The televised 8th Annual USAGEM Awards Show was held on Saturday November 19, 2011 at the historic Texas Troubadour Theatre in Nashville, Tennessee.  The three hour show was filmed by Fresh Well Media for future television broadcasts on the Family Friendly Entertainment Network.

 

Fittingly, Melanie Walker opened the show with a flawless performance of her upbeat, hand-clapping song, “Walking In Jerusalem”.    

 

The Fox Brothers were the hosts of the show and kept the show moving with introductions of performers and presenters by means of their own brand of humor and wit.  They garnered three awards including the Gospel Entertainer Of The Year, Vocal Group Of The Year, and the Christian Country Crown Jewel Award.  Group member and funnyman, Roy Fox received the Comedian Of The Year award.  The Fox Brothers aptly had the crowd on their feet as they closed the show with their popular rendition of an American patriotic favorite, “God Bless The USA”.

 

Members of the popular southern gospel singing group, The Gardners accepted three awards including the Song Of The Year accolades for their song “Sign Me Up”. They also received the Southern Gospel Crown Jewel Award and group member Regina Gardner was the recipient of the coveted Female Vocalist Of The Year Award. 

 

One emotional highlight of the show was the awarding of the organization’s most prestigious honor, The Diamond Award to USAGEM’s past president and Pearly Gates members, Daniel and Teresa Johnson.  This award is a lifetime achievement honor presented to USAGEM members who show a great commitment to God, Christian service, and dedication to USAGEM.  A further emotional highlight was the presentation of the Sapphire Award to Don Inks for his behind the scenes work and devotion to the USAGEM organization.  Don is the husband and manager of Christian country artist, Peggy Inks. The Emerald Award was presented to Kent Smith Family member and founder, Kent Smith; and the Ruby Award went to television producer and radio host, Tommie Lewis. 

 

The Male Vocalist Of The Year Award was presented to one of the organization’s perennial favorites, Rene Jones.  He and his wife, Edie Jones presented an impeccable performance of their brand new Christian Country chart single, “Bible By Her Bed”. 

 

Danny Jones did a superb performance of his self-penned song “Dream Giver”, a song featured in the upcoming faith-based movie “Secrets In The Snow”.  Jones also garnered the Contemporary Christian Crown Jewel Award, his very first USAGEM trophy.

 

Newcomer, Russ Murphy had the enthusiastic crowd on their feet as he performed his hit single and patriotic song “My America” and comedian nominee Cheryl Jackson performed a very impressive stand-up comedy routine which had everyone laughing with her side-splitting, hilarious wit.

 

The Duo Of The Year Award was presented for the second time to Lewis & Lewis; The Musician Of The Year accolades went to Nashville producer and pianist, John Rees; The Accoustic Singer/Songwriter Of The Year was awarded to Christian country singer and songwriter, Ann Hartmann; The New Artist Of The Year honors went to new southern gospel group, The Davis Family; The Black Gospel Crown Jewel was awarded to television host and singer, Dewitt Johnson; and bluegrass group, Leipers Fork Bluegrass were first time recipients of the Bluegrass Crown Jewel Award.

 

Charlene Harrison’s very stirring presentation of “How Great Thou Art”, and For Heaven’s Sake’s very powerful performance of “God’s Still Faithful” left the crowd wanting more.  Bluegrass nominees Sandi Kay & New Hickory once again brought the house down with their intricate bluegrass picking and singing as they performed “I Can See Clearly Now”.

 

New Artist nominees Allison Speer, Mark Brown, David Smith, Paul Sparks, Sunday Edition, and The Davis Family received a standing ovation for their moving and powerful performance of “Because He Lives”, a song made famous by the legendary Speer Family.  Song Of The Year nominees Glenn Tubb, The Pearly Gates, Tank Tackett, Joe Arview and Thunder, and The Gardners each flawlessly and proudly performed a portion of their top five nominated songs.  Musician nominees Shelton Bissell, Jim Frable, John Rees, and Jay Shupe performed an upbeat “I’ll Fly Away” while young USAGEM members Summer & Autumn Ryan performed their clogging routine, a bonus delight to audience members.

 

To commemorate a brand new addition of the Acoustic Singer/Songwriter Of The Year Award, a special songwriter’s round was featured and included performances by the top five nominees.  Ann Hartmann, Daniel Johnson, Glenn Tubb, Tammy Vice, and Jimmy Jack Whitaker each performed a portion of one of their favorite self-penned songs.  During this performance, a surprise special guest appearance by Nashville songwriter, Wood Newton added a special flavor to this already great songwriter’s collaboration.  Wood has written many hit songs including “Bobbie Sue” made famous by The Oak Ridge Boys.

 

Bev McCann performed a very touching tribute to respected USAGEM member and award winner Amanda Fessant, who passed away earlier this year after a long battle with cancer.  She was only 34 years old.  Bev performed a medley of songs of Amanda’s favorite gospel hymns including “Amazing Grace”, “I Surrender All”, and “This World Is Not My Home”.

 

Special segment hosts were Rev. Harry Yates, Joanne Cash Yates, Peggy Inks, and Melanie Walker. Some award presenters were Brian and Allison Speer; media representative, Evie Hawkins; Mona Faith and Rev. Gene Fant; Don and Sandra Lee Burdick; Last Chance members James Burns and Mark Fuqua; and David Smith of the duo, David & Carrie Smith.  Other presenters included Tank Tackett, Stephen Fryar, Marty Merchant, Darlene Chapman, Tommie Lewis, Roger Revette, Sheila Berry, Jim Babcock, Laura Mathy, Kent Smith, Ray Lewis, Dottie Tubb, and The Toneys.

The Fox Brothers Win

 At The 17th Annual ICM Awards

 

The 17th Annual Inspirational Country Music Association’s Faith, Family and Country Music Awards took center stage at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday October 28, 2011.  This year’s ICM awards were tied “with pink ribbon” which also benefited the Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition.

 

Awards were presented in twenty-two categories which included both rising artists and a stellar array of major music industry names in a broad cross section including entertainer, male and female artists, new artist, song, songwriter, group, duo, musician, radio personality, radio station, film, and television honors. 

 

An emotional highlight of the evening was the naming of The Fox Brothers as the recipient of the ICM Living Legend Award.  Roy, Randy, and Lynn Fox were on hand to receive this prestigious honor.  ICM president Gene Higgins presented the Living Legend Award to The Fox Brothers.  “If I’d known we were going to win an award, I wouldn’t have sit so far back,” Roy Fox joked after the brothers made their way to the stage to accept their honor. 

 

“We needed a home and the Inspirational Country Music Association took in The Fox Brothers,” Lynn Fox said.  “We love all those who voted for us and those of you who didn’t vote for us.  We love you too.” “Just not as much,” Roy interrupted as the crowd exploded in laughter. 

 

An official quote from the ICM Awards press release by the Inspirational Country Music Association states –

 

“The brotherhood trio of Roy, Randy, and Lynn Fox are true representatives of the unique blend of Christian and country music.  Growing up, the brothers honed their harmonies and genius for entertaining an audience in the revival and church service world of their childhood in rural Tennessee.  With success in southern gospel, The Fox Brothers expanded their reach to become one of the industry’s most beloved performing groups.”

 

The Fox Brothers have previously been honored as the “Entertainer Of The Year” for three times (1999, 2000, & 2001) by the Inspirational Country Music Association voters who also deemed them “Vocal Group Of The Year” for a record eight years.
