About Gena

Gena Hamilton comes from a musical family. Her mother, father and all four brothers were always playing and singing together from the time she can remember. With early roots in the South on the borders of Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma she is truly a Southern Girl.
Early in life she sang in church and at church functions, which gave her a memorized catalog of hundreds of standard and classic hymns and other special songs.
In school Gena studied music and participated in the High School band as a flutist and as a featured vocal performer in the school choir. As a teenager, Gena was told that she sounded a lot like country singer Connie Smith. She was not familiar with her but a friend gave Gena a recording of Connie's and after listening she smiled and said, "You know, everybody sounds like someone, but ultimately, you are who you are - your own person with your individual sound."
Ultimately, Gena started to receive invitations to perform as a soloist and background singer for recordings and at various functions and musical productions locally and in the four states region. Gena became a regular on Music Country USA in Broken Bow, Oklahoma and then moved to the Oaklawn Opry in Texarkana, Texas.  Gena's Trophies of His Grace CD was officially released Dec 15, 2013 at the Circle J Cowboy Church in Texarkana, Arkansas in full concert with the Trophies Band. It officially debuted on television on March 12, 2014 on Southern Gospel Praise in Dallas, Texas on the UAN Network. By mid-July the single cut Higher Ground had reached #30 in the major charts and by August 1st had reached #1 status.
Since that time, Gena has had seven #1 hits and twelve Top 10 hits, including Wishing Well, which was #1 in the January 2021 charts, as show above.  She is currently charting on five major nationwide charts! To date, she has been honored with either major awards, including two Female Vocalist of the Year awards, a Legacy Award, a President's Award, a Fan Fair Award and several others.  She has been nominated over 50 times for awards in various award shows since 2012.
Gena is currently working on her fifth CD project, named Gena and Friends, which will be a triple-pack that will include family friendly traditional country, country gospel, southern gospel and country Christmas.  Many celebrities will join in on this project, including Leona Williams, Barbara Fairchild, Jo-El Sonnier, Jeenie Seeley, along with many more surprise guests!  Part of the proceeds from the new project will benefit some selected children's charities so everybody will certainly want to order this unique project.  Introductory price for this project will be $39.99 plus shipping.
