The Isaacs, a multi-GRAMMY® nominated family group with roots dating back to 1971, is composed of vocalists, siblings Ben Isaacs, Sonya Isaacs Yeary and Rebecca Isaacs Bowman and mother Lily Isaacs. The newest inductees into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame, the Isaacs play their own acoustic instruments and joined by other band members, have a unique style that blends tight family harmony with contemporary acoustic instrumentation that appeals to a variety of audiences. Their remarkable sound has led to invitations from high-profile contemporaries, including Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Paul Simon and many more, to sing on numerous albums and stages. The Isaacs' musical style has been influenced by many genres of music such as country, bluegrass, rhythm and blues, folk, contemporary, acoustic and southern gospel.
Drawing from these influences, The Isaacs are gearing up to release their new album, The American Face, on August 13, via their House of Isaacs label. The American Face is a 12-song collection split between new material like the title track, released July 2 as the lead single, and covers of classics like "More Than Words" by Extreme, "You're The Inspiration" by Chicago, "We Can Work It Out" by The Beatles and “Forever and For Always” by Shania Twain. A portion of proceeds from the album will benefit The Bridge Ministry, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Nashville, which exists to alleviate the suffering of underprivileged children, the homeless and the working poor by providing life-sustaining resources and a message of hope. The Isaacs, first line descendants of Holocaust survivors, have also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to bless Israel, specifically Holocaust Survivors, Israeli Defense “Lone” Soldiers and orphans through their non-profit organization, The Isaacs Foundation, via The Fishman Isaacs Israel Initiative (FIII) since 2018.
The Isaacs are frequent guests on the Grand Ole Opry, active members on the Gaither Homecoming Videos and Concert Series and perform over 100 dates a year to welcoming fans throughout the world. Having performed at prestigious venues like Carnegie Hall, The Isaacs have also entertained fans at CMA Fest, on the "CMA Country Christmas" special and at many professional sporting events, including The Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Bengals, Indiana Pacers, Brooklyn Nets, Tennessee Titans, Houston Astros and Nashville Predator games. The award-winning group has also been nominated at and performed on the Dove Awards where they have earned seven trophies, the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, the National Quartet Convention Awards and the Inspirational Christian Country Awards. Two of their recent projects, executive produced by NFL Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw, received consecutive GRAMMY nominations for Best Roots Gospel Album as well as a nomination for Best Roots Gospel Song. The Isaacs feel blessed to be able to travel and spread the message of hope and grace through song and story.
Oh, how I love The Isaacs. I love their hearts, their souls and their look. And, of course, God never gave anyone more beautiful voices than the Isaacs. They have been so generous through the years singing with me on different recordings of mine. And those are among some of the greatest of my personal treasures and pleasures. To know the Isaacs and to hear them is to love them.

If you have never experienced the Isaacs in concert, there is your life before and your life afterwards. They are spellbinding! Quite frankly, the Isaacs are the best, to see and hear them is to witness masters at work. No matter what genre of music the Isaacs are invited into, their sincerity and authenticity always makes them the stand out group of the night. I dearly love the Isaacs and their music.
