The  Dotsons



This new project has 12 songs, with 8 of those being original written by John and Christopher. 

We are so excited about this new recording and truly feel it will be a blessing to all who hear it.

One of the new original songs written by John talks about the trials of life that have surely been present at the Dotsons household but the Lord has been even more present and because of Him, we are STRONGER than ever in our Lord.

ABOUT US......


The Dotsons are a family gospel group from northern Indiana. The group consists of husband and wife, John and Yavonna Dotson and their oldest son, Christopher Dotson. 

For the first seven years of The Dotsons ministry, it was just John and Yavonna.  Christopher joined them full time in August 2013. Christopher brings a lot to the group with his love for gospel music and many talents of playing the mandolin, acoustic, lead and steel guitar as well as singing harmony and some lead vocals.  Like his dad, He has even written a few songs.  

John and Yavonna have been singing together for over 30 years.  They started out singing in their home church, funerals and weddings. In early 1998 God started opening doors and leading them in a different direction. They did their first recording project in October 1998. In February 1999 they were given the opportunity to open for the legendary group, The Kingsmen, at a concert in North Manchester, IN. Shortly after that concert, the phone started ringing with inquiries about booking The Dotsons. After the group did their first recording in 1998, it was evident to them that God had given John the gift of songwriting. John is becoming very well known for his song writing abilities; such as Gardens of Stone, The Man I use to be, Lost and Found, No One Expected Me, I’m gonna run for home, Think of Me, He`s Still Saving Me, Prayer Warrior, Who Will Tell Them; the list goes on and on. The Dotsons are in their 23rd year of traveling and singing for the Lord with a total of 8 recording projects & working on #9. 

The Dotsons desire is to be used by the Lord to help others find their way to Him and encourage others in their walk with the Lord.
