About The Whisnants: Passing the leadership of the group onto Jeff and Susan in 1990, a new era of The Whisnants began. Jeff remains the only original group member of the family, both owning and managing the group. “We placed our ministry in God’s hands 44 years ago and have watched Him do miraculous things. There is no doubt in my mind that God has His hand on this ministry.” Jeff explains. The current line-up of the trio is Jeff and Susan, Aaron Hise and their sons Austin and Ethan. Their oldest son, Austin, wed Jordan Carter in October of 2015. Aaron joined the group in 2001 and is married to Suzanne Taylor of The Taylors. Aaron and Suzanne are expecting their first child in 2016. Looking back, Jeff recalls Aaron’s first concert with them, “He met us at a church in Evansville, Indiana and there was 32 inches of snow on the ground!”
With over 40 years of traveling behind them, The Whisnants have performed all across the nation and around the world, including Canada, Hawaii and cruises sailing to the Bahamas, Belize and Mexico. The trio has celebrated 13 #1 songs spanning from 2001 to 2013 and their first single for 2014, “He Can Move That Stone,” was nominated as a Top 10 Favorite Song in the Singing News Fan awards (2014). In 2003, their ballad “What You Took From Me” ranked #1 on the Singing News Top 40 Year End Chart as the most played song on radio and “Even In The Valley” did the same in 2004. They have been nominated for Trio of the Year 10 times and received many individual nominations such as Favorite Young Artist, Favorite Female Singer, Favorite Alto, etc. They also have appeared on the Gospel Music Southern Style Program (INSP Network), the Gaither Video Taping in Nashville, TN in February of 2007 and numerous appearances at the National Quartet Convention. More importantly, Jeff shares, “I have asked God to allow us to be the very best that we can be so that He can use this ministry to touch people’s lives. He has done that!” The achievements The Whisnants have acquired over the years are a testimony to the blessings God has placed on their ministry and they seek to use them to bring glory to their Lord in every concert.
