From Sunny Tennessee, Southern Gospel Recording Artists

The Knight Family (Southern Gospel & Bluegrass)

The Knight Family originally consisted of Ralph & Linda Knight, and their son Adam. For many years the group traveled in that configuration. Their younger son Aaron began singing with the group in 1998. During the 1990’s while in the full time ministry, the group charted 7 songs in the Singing News chart. These included the most well known, My Life Has No Meaning Without Jesus, There is A Refuge In Jesus and Live In Me. The group has traveled coast to coast in concerts, revivals, campmeetings, benefits, and once did a Wal-Mart tour. The Knight Family appeared in Singing News, U.S. Gospel News, Gospel Voice and Hallelujah Times magazines.

The family has shared the stage with many well known artists such as Jeff & Sheri Easter, Ralph Stanley, Rascal Flatts, Shenandoah, The Primitive Qt., The Bowling Family, The Perry’s, The Singing Cookes, The Nelons, LuLu Roman, Dale Ann Bradley, The Kingsmen, Inspirations, Kevin Spencer, The Spencers, Barbara Fairchild, The Greene’s, George Hamilton IV and many more. National speakers such as Franklin Graham, Zig Ziglar and Bobby Allison were all on programs with the group. The family left the road from full time ministry in 2003, but in the Summer of 2013, a new and retooled Knight Family emerged. The group is made up of family matriarch Linda Knight, singer/musician/minister Adam Knight, and his wife Angel who sings with the group. Angel is the daughter of Dove Award winning songwriter Homer Jackson, and grew up playing Bluegrass Gospel music. Adam and Angel’s daughter, Evie joined the group in 2017 and will have a featured song on the latest album!

The Knight Family’s comeback album, Burning Bush Moments was released in May of 2014 with the title track being released to radio stations nationally! The song written Hometown In The Sky off the album reached the #1 position out of 8,242 songs on the Soundclick Christian internet charts in the Summer of 2014 and #1 out of 65,000 on the Country chart.

The Knight Family is now 5 albums in with the new lineup. In 2016, the 16 song 30th Anniversary Album was released and has been the best-selling CD the family has released. The group’s Spring 2016 single, “I Believe, Help My Unbelief” has charted on the Singing News Top 80, Christian Voice Top 100, and the SGN Scoops Top 100. Their latest project is a tribute to the mountain gospel music the family grew up on and features Bluegrass Legend, Bobby Osborne.

In September of 2015 and 2016, the family travelled to LeMars, Iowa to receive the “Vintage Recorded Gospel Album of The Year” from the National Roots Commission for their last two albums.

The family now maintains a schedule with close to 170 concerts per year in 30 states.
