History

The Akins are made up of three brothers and a dad whose faith and family values shape their music. Their musical talent and tight family harmonies create a unique sound that is enjoyed by all ages. They write their own songs and play all of their own instruments.

David, the father, began in 1988 when his three sons Dave, Nick, and Eli were children. While leading music at a youth retreat, David met a man named Jonathan whose father was a well known preaching evangelist. Jonathan's father had recently passed away. Jonathan shared with David that he knew his father loved him, but he was in high demand and was usually not able to be at home. His eyes then filled with tears as he told David that he wished he could have known his father better. That night David went to his hotel room and spent some time on his knees in prayer. He asked God to give him something he could do with his family so that his three sons would not grow up and have to say that they never knew their father. Now, twenty years later it's clear to see that on that very night, God heard a desperate dad's prayer.

But The Akins have only begun. In July of 2008 they signed with Crossroads Records. Since that time, The Akins have struck a chord in the Southern Gospel music industry with their fresh sound, original songs, and live music. They are two time "Horizon Group of the Year" nominees by Singing News Magazine, and have received multiple nomiations at the Inspirational Country Music Awards including, "Entertainer of the Year," "Vocal Group of the Year," and "Christian Country Song of the Year." Their self titled "The Akins" CD features their # 1 hit "I Want My Stage To Be An Altar."
