Sharon Leighton Joyner

“Sharon received recognition as a Country recording artist while sharing the stage with her late husband John Leighton. As a duo and as a solo artist, Sharon recorded several successful albums and was nominated by the Academy of Country Music for a variety of awards. At the height of her career, Sharon and her band appeared in an episode of the McCloud television series with Dennis Weaver.”

“In recent years, Sharon has recorded two albums and three single of songs she has written during the past 20 years. AGAINST ALL ODDS, IT’S NEVER TOO LATE on CD; Forgiveness, No More Hurtin' Songs and Christmas Is as singles. On the first CD she wrote all the songs, and the latter, she co-wrote one and added “Victory In Jesus” by EM Bartlett. These recordings were a part of her first venture into Country Gospel music. In May 2006 Sharon was awarded the 2006 Silver Heart Award for New Female Artist at the Western Region Convention of the Country Gospel Music Association. In May 2007 and 2008 she was awarded the Silver Heart Award for both Psalmist and Lyricist, and in 2011 was awarded the Silver Heart Award for Psalmist and was nominated in that category at the International Convention of CGMA in Branson, MO.

Sharon is available for performing in venues such as Concerts, Churches, Private parties, etc.
