The Haygoods have joined Threadbare, The Crow Hollerers, and Benjamin Dawson’s original score on the “Found” soundtrack with their song “We Will Have It All” from their album “The Lucky Ones”. A family music act based out of Branson, MO., The Haygoods have been playing together for 28 years in one of the longest running, most successful shows in the history of Branson. With 7,000 concerts for over 6,000,000 people worldwide, the Haygoods set the SOLD OUT record in Branson with 85 sold out shows last season.
The secret to their success is family. The group started out with seven brothers and one sister who grew up together in humble beginnings in the backwoods of Boerne, Texas. In 1983, at the age of five, the oldest brother Timothy was watching “Sesame Street” on PBS and world famous violinist, Itzhak Perlman, was performing on the show. Afterwards, Timothy was inspired and begged his mom to get him into lessons, so Mom Haygood enrolled him into classical violin lessons. Timothy’s brothers grew up watching him play the violin and they wanted to be just like him, so they began learning the instrument as well, except for Patrick who chose the marimbas as his instrument. In 1987, Timothy began taking country fiddle lessons from famous Texas fiddler Frenchie Burke. Pretty soon the Haygood kids were singing in harmony, playing fiddle tunes, and dancing as part of the act. As children, they played music and sang at festivals and fairs across the Southern United States.
After two brothers left to pursue careers outside of music, the remainder of the family took a big financial risk and opened up their own show in Branson in 2001. The show has grown steadily over the years and with the addition of a popular TV show “The Adventure of the Haygoods”, the family has grown into one of the most popular acts in Branson.
Both their story and their sound makes them a great match for “Found.” and we are excited to have them join us for our first feature film adventure.
