Utah is where our family was born, where we grew up, moved from, and then came back to!
When we were young and sang Barbershop harmony as a quartet, we moved to California to be on a weekly television show called The Andy Williams Show. We spent 7 years doing that and then got into the record business and writing songs that appealed to our own peers.
After having much success and in making many friends worldwide, we started doing television again with The Donny and Marie Show and all the family got involved in the production of it. We missed not being in Utah and so my family asked me to meet with the President of ABC Television, Fred Silverman, and ask him to allow us to move the TV Series to Utah! Mr. Silverman said, “What’s in Utah?” “Is there a TV Studio there?” I said, “No, but there will be!” We showed him our production plans for the construction and finally he approved us to move it to Utah during the mid-season that following year. We knew it was ambitious but we felt inspired to follow our promptings so we pushed all the “go buttons” to build The Osmond Studios, a state of the art Television and Production Studio in Orem, Utah!
We Osmonds loved music and we traveled around the world many times singing it but when we finished our tours, we also loved to go back home and be with all of our families!
We sang a song called, “Hello Utah” that reminded everyone of a most wonderful place to live. We wanted all of our friends and neighbors to know how much we enjoyed growing up in Utah, going to school, making friends, marring their daughters and son, and for all of our grandkids to do the same!
It was 1981 and we all now had families while performing and we were missing them and our wives, so we decided to stop touring for a while and went back home to Utah! I love staying busy so that’s when I started a live stadium event called, “Stadium of Fire”! I loved fireworks and as Executive Producer of The Donny & Marie TV Series and other Osmond productions, I soon learned that it wasn’t “television”…. but tele-VISION!!!!! People loved to SEEEEEEEEE something fun and exciting. Fireworks was my thing! I loved lighting up the sky to music and even set a Guinnes Book of Records for lighting a MILLION firecrackers in 6 seconds!
We are now into our 36th year of this sold out celebrity fireworks spectacular with a focus on God, Family, Freedom, and Country!
We all moved to Branson, Missouri where we had The Osmond Family Theater where we worked for 10 years. We were in one place and the audiences traveled to see us instead of us to them! It worked out great.
Times have changed. We are now living in day of unsure times when there is much wickedness and turbulence in the world. The future seems so corrupt and most unsure. But, with faith and hope, trusting in the Lord and by being wise, we can plan for those great days and tomorrows ahead! We have something that we know will help.
I am older and hopefully a little wiser.
I would like to invite all of our friends and neighbors to email me so that we can arrange for you to “SEE” what we are doing!
Alan & Suzanne Osmond remembering some good old friends, The Beach Boys!
Suzanne and I had a great time with The Beach Boys at the Stadium of Fire event which I started and now after 34 years with which I am still involved! Yes, we are working on talent for this coming year and hope you will mark the 4th of July to be with us in Utah!
Let’s always remember . . . No matter who “we think we are”, we are all still “brothers and sisters” of a loving God in this world we call earth. Let’s all make the most of it and choose well always remembering who we are, and why we are here!
Today my heart is filled with thankfulness and the love of life with a desire to speak out and share my feelings from within.
This past week has been such a wonderful week where so many eventful things took place. On July 4th, we got our 23rd grandchild born to Alex and Jessica Osmond. It was a beautiful and healthy girl which they named Peyton. She is our little “Firecracker” baby! She also reminded Suzanne and me of the joy we have had in raising our eight sons and how important family is! This is why Suzanne and I publish here at TheFamily.com with various ways to help “Strengthen The Family Physically, Mentally, Socially, Spiritually, and Financially. Suzanne and I really work hard to help ‘Strengthen The Family’ – and we are focusing on Strengthening The Family – Financially at such a time as this which seems to be one of the biggest challenges today. In order to have the resources necessary to live a balanced good life and to get any kind of education, we have been finding tremendous success with our company, Osmond.net.
We as a family are all joining together this week for the George and Olive Osmond Family Reunion for a fun time and to renew our commitment and love for one another. We also want everyone to see the up to date genealogy success we’re having with OsmondFamily.org in finding our ancestors and “turning the hearts of the children to the fathers”.
This past week we and TheFamily.com also announced the development of a NEW Social Network Site JUST FOR FAMILIES called OurFamily.com. Go and take a look at it! It has many secure features just for families.
You see, Social Networks Come and Go But, Families are Forever! We made this first announcement at America’s Freedom Foundation‘s 33rd year of Stadium of Fire. It was one of our best shows as we celebrated Family, God, Country and Freedom. I created and started Stadium of Fire in 1981 after we decided to come home from a most successful concert tour but with the decision that we were going to quit entertaining. Why?
I wanted a job where I could work and be home as a husband and a father. Even with all of the gold records and success that we have had for over 50+ years performing individually and as a family, but we know that no other success anc compensate for ‘failure in the home’. As entertainers, we have to travel and take our music to those around the world in order to perform to our many audiences. We Osmonds have been doing it for many years and loved it but now that we are older, we were missing our wives and families; and nothing was more important than they! Now, don’t get me wrong, we love the success we had in the entertainment and recording industry and especially loved going around the world to see our most loyal fans gather together with us in concert and to share our love of music with them.
We are appreciative of our fans which we call friends because of their friendship and loyalty throughout the years. We have been able to meet and get to know many people and have developed friendships worldwide. Yes, we always enjoyed performing and we still do but, we are also human beings with feelings and emotions, also! We have needs like everyone else and needed to experience life ourselves as human beings, children of God, and to fulfill ‘God’s work and glory’ by experiencing life while keeping God’s commandments. Such commandments include honesty, integrity, chastity, loving others as oneself and in finding someone to share one’s life with, getting married, and ‘multiplying and replenishing the earth’ by bringing His spirit children to earth via birth in physical bodies as children into a family, of which we all are.
You see, we don’t believe that we are here by accident, by evolution, or by chance. We believe that we are literally children of God and that His Plan which we all accepted before we came here was to get a physical body of flesh and bones in order to become more like our Heavenly Parents; to gain knowledge and wisdom, to understand good and evil, to be tested, and to choose the way we wish to live our lives. We must choose ‘The Way’ by following either Jesus Christ, who is ‘The Way’ of everlasting life . . . .OR . . . ‘The Way’ of Satan, who is the author of all evil!
Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and by following His ways and studying His word and works, we can become more perfected in this life and become more like Him. As promised, He came to this world to ‘show us The Way’ and by example, how to live our lives. After we die, which we will and which is an important factor in God’s ‘Plan of Happiness’, because of Jesus Christ, we will rise again and become glorified children of God. After resurrection, the spirit and body will never again be separated, and the person will become immortal. Every person born on earth will be resurrected because Jesus Christ overcame death. (1 Cor. 15:20–22)
We also have the freedom to fail, by the choice of following Satan and his works of sin. We all will live again after we die and live forever as spiritual beings. But where? We do believe that if a couple are married by one who has authority in The House of the Lord with the covenants and sealing promises made to God, that we as husbands and wives with our families will be together again and forever will live eternally in one of Heavenly Fathers mansions on high:
I don’t want to make this a lecture on faith, religion, or to be a debate. This life really isn’t about how much STUFF we can acquire . . ., it’s about helping others, and securing oneself and one’s family for the future and to be informed and prepared, especially during these GREAT and DREADFUL days . . . The Last Days!
We wrote a song back in the ’70’s from the Album, The Plan, called “It’s Gotta Be The Last Days”. We sang about many of the things that were prophesied would happen and sang, “That’s what they said . . . some day it would be. Now just look around . . . if that’s what you see . . . IT’S GOTTA BE THE LAST DAYS!”
Well friends, take a look around! The Last Days would be a GREAT DAY . . . and a DREADFUL DAY! And it is! We ARE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS!
I don’t want to write any more but want to invite all of you to comment and discuss this topic as I want to know your feelings. I want to know what you think! Our web site’s ability to comment was off but, I think it is working once again. I invite you to ponder your hearts and share your honest thoughts and feelings about these LAST DAYS! “WHY IS IT A GREAT AND A DREADFUL DAY?”
We are All ‘Fired Up’ for this years Stadium of Fire!
Remember when we lit 1,000,000+ firecrackers in 6 seconds?
Are you ready and fired up for a great 4th of July Celebration of Family, Freedom, God and Country? Well we are and it’s going to be a BLAST!!!!

Nathan Osmond films music video for patriotic ballad on the Bonneville Salt Flats.
By Dana Ferguson -| The Salt Lake Tribune
Nine flags waved over the desertlike landscape of the Bonneville Salt Flats this week, as Nathan Osmond tapped the return key on his laptop and sent pre-recorded melodies over the great expanse.
The country singer and his band proceeded to rock out, attempting not to trip over the uneven terrain.
Nathan Osmond and his band filmed scenes for Osmond’s new music video “Stars and Stripes” on Wednesday, June 27, on the Utah Salt Flats. The video is set to be released next week.
A hodgepodge crew of musicians and producers gathered on the Bonneville Salt Flats to film scenes for Osmond’s single “Stars and Stripes.” All the while, onlookers stopped at the rest stop just up the hill to check out what was going down below.
Band members pounded steel rods into the rough ground while videographers wrestled with their equipment. Filming began about an hour and a half later than expected Wednesday evening.
Osmond wrote the song to honor military families. “I’m just thinking what’s on my heart,” he said.
In other staged scenes, the video will feature Robert and Krista Iverson and their children. After hearing the country ballad at a recent concert, Krista Iverson volunteered to participate in filming the music video. “We heard it and we thought it really captured some of the experiences we’ve been through,” Iverson said.
Robert Iverson was awarded a Purple Heart after his tank was attacked in the initial invasion of Iraq in 2003. The Marine officer said he appreciates the message of gratitude Osmond’s song sends to troops, veterans and military families.
“We traveled a lot of miles, we killed a lot of people, we went back to our camp and started all over again the next day,” Robert Iverson said. “It was really rough on us.”
The music video is one reminder of the sacrifices of soldiers serving overseas. “I really appreciate what [Osmond] is doing putting the military back on the nation’s conscience,” Iverson said. “So many paid the ultimate price. I’m honored to just be associated with those people.”
Families at home also face significant struggles, and in the music video Krista Iverson is pictured praying for her husband, awaiting his return.
Note: Nathan will be performing this song at “Stadium of Fire”on July 4th at BYU’s Lavelle Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah prior to Scotty McCreery and The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Celebration!
I’ve been working with my friends to celebrate our freedoms and liberty of this great nation and preparing for a wonderful finale to our multiple week of patriotic events leading up to the 4th of July. As a member of the board of trustees of America’s Freedom Foundation we produce many patriotic events and as citizens we spend time remembering how blessed we are as a nation when we turn our hearts to God and give thanks for those who gave their lives in defense of our freedoms!
This nation of America is a “promised land”and will be blessed as long as we remember those sacred covenants andpromises that were made to God by our forefathers. Covenants are two way promises and we cannot expect our God to continue to bless our nation if we forget to keep His commandments and to love one another in order to receive His blessings.
