The seven kids in the Duckworth family grew up learning to sing harmony before they even knew what the word meant.
Their mom would direct them in porch sing-along at their Grafton home and they just followed.
As a result, all seven of the Taylor County natives are musical and still making harmony when they gather at the old home place.
But three siblings - Wendy Williams and her brothers Greg and Brian Duckworth - have aspirations beyond the porch.
And although they're now grown and living with their respective families in three different parts of the state, the trio has found time not only to harmonize their country music sounds together for audiences, but also to record in Nashville, hire a publicity manager, attract a sponsor and earlier this month, win a prestigious industry magazine award.
Music Row Magazine named their band, Taylor Made, the Country Breakout Band of 2013, a designation earned because of radio play the band has garnered.
"This is just a step below a Billboard Magazine or Country Music Association award," said their publicist, Elise Anderson.
It's been an affirmation of all their hard work over the last couple of years, and Williams marvels that "three kids from Grafton, W.Va., got this award."
She is an office manager who lives in Preston County. Brother Greg is a sergeant with the State Police in Beckley and Brian is a truck driver who lives in Clarksburg. All three have families and kids. And while that complicates things, it doesn't change their goal, Williams said.
"At the end of the day, we want to be at the top of the charts," she said.
Thanks to supportive employers, spouses and lots of friends, Williams said she and her brothers are able to juggle schedules and responsibilities. They've made repeated trips to Nashville to meet folks in the industry and to record. Sponsor Greg Darby, president of Little General Stores Inc. based in Beckley, helped form a record label to produce their music.
