The Lewis Family, America's First of Bluegrass Gospel Music, was organized in 1951. The Lewis Family has achieved worldwide recognition as an icon of bluegrass gospel music. From a modest but proud beginning in Lincoln County, the group has continued for over 50 years as it began; made up entirely of family members encompassing three generations.

The Lewis Family hosted its own television show in WJBF-TV in Augusta for over 38 years and has won awards too numerous to list. In 1992, The Lewis Family was inducted into the prestigious Georgia Music Hall of Fame.

Roy (Pop) Lewis and Pauline (Mom) Holloway married in 1925 and had seven children to perform with the family: Miggie Lewis, Wallace Lewis, Esley Lewis, Talmadge Lewis, Polly Lewis Copsey, Janis Lewis Phillips, and Little Roy Lewis. Two grandchildren, Travis Lewis and Lewis Phillips are also performing with the family.
