“We are excited about this new series, “states Clarke Beasley, NQC’s Executive Vice President. “This program gives viewers the feeling that they are attending the Convention with many of the sites and sounds of the event visible on the program.  We believe this will entice people to want to attend NQC in person.”

NQC – the National Quartet Convention – was formed in 1957 by gospel music legend and former backup vocalist for Elvis Presley, J.D. Sumner who co-produced the event with James Blackwood. The annual convention was moved in later years to Nashville, TN and then to Louisville, KY where it was held for 20 years.

Legacy Five announces departure of Scott Howard

Scott Howard departs Legacy Five

Scott Howard departs Legacy Five

Scott Howard, long-time baritone for Legacy Five, has announced his retirement from Legacy Five. “I’ve lived my dream. I’ll never be able to express my gratitude to Scott Fowler, Roger Bennett and the Lord for giving me the desire of my heart all those years ago to sing Southern Gospel Music. I’ve had the opportunity to make life-long friends, sing night after night to people all over the world about God’s love, and share the stage with the finest men in the industry. I am grateful beyond words for the privilege to do this for almost 20 years. However, seasons come and go, and for over a year now I have sensed this chapter coming to a close for myself and my family. Scott and I talked about it during this last year and he graciously gave me time and space to listen to the Lord and wait for His timing. Change is never easy for a group either personally or financially. So, after discussion, Fowler and I both feel it will be better to coordinate my departure with that of Josh Feemster’s. I am hopeful it will ease the transitional costs and adjustments on Legacy Five as a whole.

“To all of you across the industry and to all the fans of Southern Gospel Music who welcomed me with open arms and supported me all these years, ‘THANK YOU!’ You all have been my second family – my road family! This is not good-bye, it’s just the closing of one chapter and the beginning of the next.”

Scott Fowler states, “I could not have asked for a better man to have by my side for 20 years. Scott Howard is a man of impeccable character and has stood with me thru some very difficult times in the life of Legacy Five. He is a rock and I have relied on him for more than I can tell you. I will miss him greatly, but I support him and his decision 100%.”
