Southern Anthem BIO
Derek, Mikaela and Logan Pausewang, collectively known as Southern Anthem, bring a fresh sound to long-time country, bluegrass and gospel favorites. What started as a need to have interim talent at a local theater production has taken them on a journey larger than life! From church auditoriums, fairs and festivals, to Branson, national television appearances, and requests from Nashville and beyond, the demand for their unique family harmony now has them traveling across the US.
Although the group began singing in church years ago, they never dreamed it would lead to the calling that God placed in their hearts. Southern Anthem entertains audiences spanning from the youngest to the oldest of fans enthralled by the talent of the Pausewang family. The band of three has a tight and beautiful harmony that only can be achieved when you combine vocals within a family. Live instrumentation with guitars, fiddle, mandolin, and banjo add to the quality and interest of their music.
Southern Anthem was inducted into the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame in July 2015, voted "Inspirational Group of the Year" in Dec 2015, then awarded the "Texas Star Award" in Nov 2016. They create a crowd-pleasing experience full of fun audience interaction and humor that people can relate to and enjoy. Their love of “good, clean music", along with the wonderful responses they receive from their fans, are and always will be the fire that drives them.
