On most of their early stuff it was indeed the very tasteful playing of Sonny Garrish....still one of the top gospel steelers in the world.....

Sonny Garrish did the high 90% of the steel on their records. The last few years they travelled Scott Sanders was playing steel at their concerts. Today, Scott is doing session work in Nashville as well. Sonny Garrish has recorded with so many gospel artists and country artists as well. It will be interesting to see how many sessions he has played on. He has been recording for many years in Nashville. As far as the Hinsons go, they were my favorite gospel group followed by the Happy Goodmans who use a lot of steel as well.

Ronnie Moore used to play with the Hinsons. GREAT PLAYER!!!!!!!! He was pastoring a church, but now is trveling again as Ron David Moore. Preaching and singing. He did that a few years before he pastored a church. Haven't seen him in years. He played with other country groups before he started on his own. His brother Keith play bass with him. Keith also play bass with the Hinsons for a while and others if I'm not mistaking. We used to go get Ronnie and bring him to our house when he would come to Ft. Smith with the Hinsons. Jerry took one trip on the bus with them. We had some good times together.

Years ago I had a live Hinsons album ... I believe it was a recording they did in Osceola, Arkansas. If I remember right, the steel player they had on that live gig was a player named Ira Leonard Johnson. It was a great live album and filled with lots of great singing and the steel playing was excellent.

Along with the Happy Goodmans, Rambos, Statesmen, Oak Ridge Boys, Florida Boys and many others, the Hinsons were always one of my favorite Gospel groups. Smile

In talking to Jack Smith, he told me he did almost all of the session work except for the last album or two. I don't think he toured with them it was just studio work. He did travel with the Goodman family for quite a while.
