Grammy nominees The Martins to appear at Boomtown Opry

Posted on March 10, 2020

Multi-Dove Award winning and multi-Grammy nominated trio The Martins will be featured at The Boomtown Opry.

Siblings Judy, Jonathan and Joyce Martin, who grew up in rural Hamburg, Arkansas, have enjoyed countless radio hits and performances on stages at such prestigious locations as The Grand Ole Opry and The White House, as well as concert halls, auditoriums and churches nationwide.

During the 1990s, The Martins rose to national and international success, showcasing their stunning and distinctive harmonies before a vast array of audiences, from Bill Gaither’s multiaward winning Homecoming Video and Concert Series to the White House to Carnegie Hall. Over the years the trio garnered eight Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association, three Grammy nominations and multiple hit songs.

After nearly a decade of pursuing individual music careers, the trio reunited in 2010, much to the delight of long-time Martin music lovers, and released their first new recording in 10 years, “New Day,” produced by Jay DeMarcus, known for his work with Rascal Flatts.

In 2014, The Martins joined Lari Goss, Michael English, David Phelps and Matthew Holt to record a new a cappella hymns project. The recording, simply titled “A Cappella,” was released in May 2014, and features The Martins’ unmatched and unmistakable family harmony. The recording earned the group a Grammy nomination for Best Roots Gospel Album, as well as the Dove Award nomination for Inspirational Album of the Year.

Most recently, The Martins returned to the recording studio to produce their latest recording. “Still Standing,” released in July 2019 under the Gaither Music Group label, garnered The Martins their third Grammy nomination, as the release received the nomination for 2019 Best Roots Gospel Album.

This new recording finds the multi-Grammy nominated vocal group standing stronger than ever, showcasing their benchmark family blends and intricate arrangements produced by renowned producer Gordon Mote. These compositions, including the remake of their classic hit “Wherever You Are,” reflect the latest chapters in siblings Judy, Joyce and Jonathan’s journeys as they share messages of God’s goodness and providential hand at work in every season of our lives.

The Martins will share their trademark harmonies on the Boomtown Opry in El Dorado at the Municipal Auditorium on Saturday, May 9 at 7 p.m.
