About The Martins
They've had No. 1 songs in formats from Southern gospel to inspirational to Christian country and have won Dove Awards in country and Southern gospel categories, but The Martins will always be anchored by deep Southern gospel roots. The siblings -- Joyce Martin-Sanders, Jonathan Martin and Judy Martin-Hess -- started singing back in the family's Arkansas farmhouse, which didn't have electricity or inside plumbing for a period. Since their rise to fame on the basis of their amazing vocal harmonies, they've been featured in Gaither Homecoming videos and concerts and performed at Dollywood and the White House. After a lengthy hiatus, the trio returned to the studio for the 2011 release New Day.
