Sneed Family At Creekside 2017

Southern Gospel Music has a rich and storied history and one of its greatest traditions and treasures is the family singing group. Names like the Speers, the Sego Brothers and Naomi and the Hoppers have made indelible marks in the profession. Another family gospel singing group that is carving a distinctive and lasting niche in their own right is the Sneed Family from the rolling hills of Kentucky . "Consisting of the husband and wife combination of Jeff and Pam Sneed, their daughter and son-in-law Caleb and Amanda Cowan, along with their sons Seth and Jacob, they blend their Christ-centered lives, heart-felt music, and inspired songs together to create an anointed sound that blesses listeners.
The Sneed Family began its gospel music journey in 1982 as “Glory Bound” with four young men just out of High School. The group was founded by Jeff Sneed. Jeff met and married Pam Saylors who has become the predominant staple in the current group. Today they are living the dream night after night with their family, singing the songs that change lives. From early beginnings in a small Kentucky town, this group has flourished into their own niche. The Sneed Family has 100 percent become a family affair, rising to national success in such a short period of time.

In early 2008 The Sneed Family launched a brand new Christian Television Show called “Glory Bound Jubilee” seen in over 1 million homes each week. The Glory Bound Jubilee is a branch off of The Sneed Family’s road ministry, which goes into venues and churches across the country showcasing many of the testimonies of our Christian faith. The Show also brings the faces of Gospel music into the homes of believers and non-believers alike. The Sneed Family believes that this show is their part of the Great Commission.
Other than the Glory Bound Jubilee being such a success, The Sneed Family has acquired many accolades of their own. In 2012, The Sneeds made their first time appearance on the National Quartet Convention’s mainstage singing, “Victory is Sweet” and “ Hallelujah Square ”. The Songs which were sung on mainstage had the privilege of being in the Top 80 Singing News charts, which were the group’s first appearances. Early 2013 The Sneed Family received the honor of being chosen to host the first Loretta Lynn Gospel Music Festival on her ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN. Also in 2013, The Sneed Family was nominated as the Favorite New Mixed Group in the prestigious Singing News Fan Awards.
Their highest accolade to date was being honored by the fans at the esteemed Absolutely Gospel Music Awards in April of 2014. They were voted Breakthrough Artist Of The Year and performed for the show along with Gospel Music's finest Artists.

The Sneed Family has a distinct style, a versatile performance, and a heart for ministry. Their desire is that God would use the message in their music to help lead many people to a “heart felt” salvation and ultimately a home in Heaven.

The Hyssongs perform at more than 250 events each year throughout the United States and Canada.

Dennis Cook At Creekside 2017

Dennis Cook was born and raised in the Athens Ga. area. He grew up as a child in a little small town named Crawford Ga. until the age of eleven. During these years he attended a little country Church with his Mama and Granddaddy who was the song leader. He loved God, Family, and going to Church more than anybody Cook ever knew. Little did he know as he sat and watched him sing that God was preparing Cook for the singing ministry many years down the road. Cook's grandaddy was a Hero and the Christ like role model.

During the year of Cook's eleventh birthday, his family moved to the big city of Athens and did not attend Church for about a decade. During this time Cook began to wander far from God and no longer had his Granddaddy to give direction. God was the farthest thing from my mind but his mind was set on worldly pleasures.
But one very dark night during the spring of 1974 things were changed. Living in an Apartment on the 2nd floor, Cook had a dream that he walked out onto the patio and looked toward the eastern sky. All of a sudden the darkness opened up like a scroll and there was the face of Jesus. He was smiling down at Cook and the light that flowed from the King blinded him and Cook fell to his knees and said “Oh my God! It’s the end of the world and I’m not ready”.
Well needless to say, things were never the same after that night. Cook was invited to the Church known as White Hall Baptist where he presently attends. In November 1974, at the age of 22 years old, Cook repented of his sins and called upon the name of the Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior.
A few weeks later a few church members created a gospel group called the Joyful Hearts. In 1980,  Cook married Susan Hembree. In 1987, she gave birth to Katie who Cook calls the apple of his eye.
Since 2013, Cook has been singing as a soloist and in January 2014, Cook released his first CD entitled “I’m Bound for That City."
Later that year, Cook released his first single “Crying in the Chapel" to national radio. The tune hit number 12 on the SGN Scoops Top 100 Chart for November 2014 and has been in the top 40 for Three months.

Dennis released "One Pair of Hands" in 2015 to national radio and it climbed the charts to number 11 on the SGN Scoops Top 100 chart and remained in the top 40 for 6 month's.

You can see Dennis on television. He is a frequent guest on the Don Frost show on Channel 57 out of Atlanta!

2015 was a good year for Dennis Cook Ministries. In the spring Dennis won FGMN's Male Artist of the year. Later in the year Cook was voted Lighthouse Gospel Music Soloist of the Year. The next year in 2016, Cook won Lighthouse Gospel Music Soloist and Male Vocalist of the year.
Cook's unique style includes about 80% of songs that are the old Elvis Gospel songs or songs with that Elvis flavor. Many have claimed that Cook is a "spittin-image" of the Elvis gospel style. But Dennis does not like to be considered an Elvis impersonator. Cook says he just grew up in that era and loves those old songs and how Elvis did them.

Dennis Cook truly loves the Lord with all his Heart and wants to serve Him in every way. Cook loves people and putting a smile on their face. But most of all, his main goal is to see a soul saved.
