For monthly blogs by Bryan and Yvonne Hutson on marriage and life, please visit SGMRadio website. Their latest blog entitled, “Love Me Tender,” is posted here. It begins:

From B:
Intimacy. What does that word mean to you?

The very nature of the word means different things to different people. To some, it simply means “physical touch” or being close.

I googled the word: “Intimacy” and it says “close familiarity or friendship; closeness.”
“the intimacy between a husband and wife”.

So, what happens when you CAN’T be “physical” with your spouse?

Bryan Hutson leaves Soul'd Out Quartet

Bryan Hutson leaves Soul’d Out Quartet

A personal message from Bryan Hutson of Soul’d Out Quartet:

I want to thank everyone who has embraced me and my family over these last nearly 24 years in full time gospel music.

For sometime now, I have felt God’s leading into a different avenue of ministry. To be transparent, I am not completely sure what avenue that is but God always reveals Himself in His timing. I am sure though that the time has come to make a change.
I’ve had the privilege to work with some of the best men in the Southern Gospel industry. I value my time with “The Heartland Boys”, to my nearly 10 years with “The Kingsmen”. I also have had the
privilege to minister next to Dusty Barrett, Matt Fouch, Ian Owens, Michael Howard and Zach Lloyd [Soul’d Out Quartet].

Bryan Hutson leaves Soul'd Out Quartet

My hope for the future is to continue to minister/sing in whatever form that becomes in an environment that is passionate about reaching lost people and helping others grow in their walk with The Lord. I remain passionate about encouraging men to be men of integrity and
fighting for their marriage and family.

From now until the New Year, I will be ministering with my wife, Yvonne, on select dates that can be found on our Facebook page Rescue
Me Ministries or Friends of Bryan Hutson.

Yvonne and Bryan Hutson

Yvonne and Bryan Hutson

Our family covets your prayers during this season of change.

 

About SOQT 

[From the Soul’d Out Quartet Website]

In May of 2004, in answer to God’s call on his life, Matt Rankin of Georgetown, Ohio started a journey to find men of kindred spirits and equal yoking to partner with him in a mission to fulfill that calling by evangelizing God’s word through song. Now, in 2013, Matt’s calling and dream have been realized in Soul’d Out Quartet. Soul’d Out Quartet, which is comprised of Dusty Barrett (tenor), Bryan Hutson (lead), Matt Rankin (baritone), Ian Owens (bass), and Michael Howard (pianist), is not only a vocal group continuing the heritage of Southern Gospel music, but is also and foremost a ministry team answering God’s call as stated in Ephesians: He gave some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some pastors, and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13 KJV)
In this spirit, Soul’d Out Quartet travels the country with a mission of evangelism and discipleship to not only win souls for Christ by telling the world “what the world doesn’t know”, but also to further strengthen and encourage God’s people to be the salt and light to the world and ambassadors for Christ, that we are each called to be and to exhort God’s people to be servants with hearts on fire!

Bryan and Yvonne Hutson: Baggage Claim

Written by Staff on July 23, 2015 – 9:40 am -

Bryan and Yvonne Hutson

Bryan and Yvonne Hutson

From Bryan Hutson …
This month’s article may be the most difficult yet most transparent one for me.

It is difficult because it’s a subject that I have failed at MISERABLY.

I have said before that Yvonne and I don’t have marriage counseling degrees framed on our wall. We don’t ever want to be perceived as “having it all together” because we don’t. We have both attended the “Marriage School of Hardknocks.” We even feel like we’re being hypocritical at times. Many times we find ourselves failing at THE VERY ISSUES that we are preaching for or preaching against.

I admit that when I came into our relationship, that I brought a lot of emotional baggage. Years of hurt, rejection, bitterness and pain. Yes, a lot that I openly admit, that I brought on myself.

The issue that I battle is making my wife and children PAY for things from my “previous life”. “Our previous life” is what Yvonne and I call the years BEFORE WE met and married.

I grew to adulthood and made mistakes and in a “previous life”, I was TOLD that I was a “mooch” (one who doesn’t pull their weight in finances or in the household) and a “Monster” because of my anger issues. I battle those “labels” that were put on me. See, if you’re told something long enough, it’s hard NOT to believe it.

A few weeks ago, Yvonne and I were riding in the car after seeing our Granddaughter being born and she inadvertently said something innocent that I took offense to. My mind raced back to my “previous life” where I felt like my feelings didn’t matter and I wasn’t allowed to voice my opinion about certain issues. After Yvonne innocently made her remark, I emotionally shut down and as she asked “What’s wrong?” I kept repeating “Nothing, I’m fine.”

At that moment, I allowed the enemy a foothold. I allowed the devil to whisper to me “Here we go again, YOUR opinions didn’t matter and YOU don’t matter.”

See, I KNOW Yvonne’s heart and I should’ve realized that she never meant to hurt me. I was allowing the baggage of my previous life to weigh me down IN THIS LIFE. I CHOSE to be offended and instead of letting it go, I held onto that pain for 2-3 days.

I also allowed the enemy to keep re-stating those lies to me. “YOUR opinions don’t matter, because YOU don’t matter. If you tell her how you feel, you’ll be perceived as a Monster.”

I was distant and quiet that week. It was like there was the “Elephant In The Room” but I didn’t want to talk about it.

Which in turn caused Yvonne to feel like she wasn’t worth it and our marriage wasn’t worth fighting for.

I was making Yvonne pay for something that happened to me YEARS ago. However, in order for she and I to have a future…we must deal with our past.

Triumphant Quartet and Soul’d Out Quartet appear at Gospel Winterfest

Written by Staff on March 9, 2015 – 2:27 pm -

 

Triumphant Quartet

Triumphant Quartet

KNOXVILLE, TN – For the third straight year, New Destiny Productions brought back the best combination of quartets for Gospel Winterfest: the award-winning Triumphant Quartet and Soul’d Out Quartet together on stage at Wallace Memorial Baptist Church in Knoxville, TN.

   
Soul'd Out

Soul’d Out

Soul’d Out Quartet from Georgetown, OH opened the concert after Russ Woolard, President of New Destiny Productions, opened with a great song, “Holy Spirit Come In This Place.”  After a few songs, Matt Rankin, founder and owner of Soul’d Out who started the group in 2004, introduced the members of the group: Michael Howard, piano and Dusty Barrett, tenor have been with the group for seven

years. Former lead for the Kingsmen Quartet, Bryan Hutson joined the group three-and-a-half years ago and sings lead, and Ian Owen, bass, joined two-and-a-half years ago. Matt writes most of the songs that the group sings.

 
The fan favorite Southern Gospel male quartet, Triumphant, was up next. Since their beginning 13 years ago at the Louise Mandrell Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN, Triumphant has won dozens of awards nationally, as well as receiving Grammy and Dove nominations. They have also had the opportunity to sing at Carnegie Hall. They opened with the song, “We Will Remember,” as well as many more from their repertoire, to the appreciation of the attendees.
Eric Bennett, bass and spokesman for the group, introduced the members of the group.  The only change in the group since its inception has been the piano

Ian Owen

Ian Owen

player.  The four vocalists are the original members. Eric and David Sutton, tenor for the group, have been standing on stage together for 20 years.  They were members of Kingdom Heirs until Triumphant was formed.  They added Clayton Inman, lead, to the group, who had sung for several groups including Won by One, and Scott Inman, baritone, who is also a prolific songwriter.  The group was close to home, so their families were there and were introduced to the audience.

 
The concert ended after a little over three hours with both groups on stage singing, ‘When The Trumpet Sounds.”
North Metro Gospel Singings will present a similar event  May 30 – 6:00 pm at Shiloh Hills Baptist Church, Kennesaw, GA with the same two groups. We encourage all Gospel fans in the area to come out,

David Sutton and Scotty Inman

Gospel Artists Give Thanks

Written by Staff on November 14, 2014 – 6:42 pm -

Gary Casto and Tribute Quartet

Gary Casto and Tribute Quartet

It is good to give thanks at any time of year, but when November comes around, it is a good excuse to stop and give thanks to God. We stop for a day to remember our veterans and those who have died, giving thanks for their sacrifice and for our freedom. We also stop for a day, and perhaps a weekend, to gather with family and friends and to be thankful for everything our Lord has given to us, as well as the great sacrifice He made on Calvary.

Our Southern Gospel friends across the country recently paused for a moment in their busy lives to tell us what they were most thankful for on Thanksgiving Day. [Editor’s note: This article was first published in 2012]. 

Soloist Larry Davis from Newton, Mississippi: “I am thankful for the talent the Lord has blessed me with. I get to sing and write and am able to live my dream everyday. I am thankful I am saved and also thankful for my daughter Stacey and my wife, Sonda.” http://www.larrydavis.org/

Gary Casto of Tribute

Gary Casto, lead singer and manager of Tribute Quartet: “I am so thankful that the Lord has placed a calling upon my life and has given me a platform to minister on each week through Southern Gospel Music. Also, I’m thankful for my family, friends and fans for their love and support on this journey of life that the Lord has placed me on.” http://www.tributequartet.com/

Sonya Browder of The Browders: “Wow, how do you pick one thing to be thankful for? The list just goes on and on! I’ve been meditating lately on the mercy of God. There are days when my humanness sticks out more than I’d care to admit! It’s in those times when I am frustrated with myself that I go to the Father and find mercy once again. Even when I’m tired of myself, He never tires of me, because His mercy endures forever! For that, I am thankful.” http://www.thebrowders.com/

Nick Trammell of The Mark Trammell Quartet: “I have a lot to be thankful for. God has blessed me and my family far beyond what we deserve. Jessica and I brought home our first child on June 21, a beautiful baby girl named Tessa Nichole. I was also privileged to get to join Dad

on stage after 28 years of watching him from the audience. I’m thankful for my beautiful wife, my family, my friends, and all the people who support us in our ministry. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without them.” http://www.marktrammellministries.com/

Soloist Sharron Kay King Driver of Macon, Georgia: “I guess to sum it up would be this scripture: ‘I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. Psalm

Nick Trammell

Nick Trammell

34:4.’ I’m ever so thankful that no matter where I am or what I’m faced with all I have to do is call out His name and He hears me and always delivers me from my fears!” http://www.sharronkayking.com/

Bryan Hutson, lead singer of Soul’d Out Quartet: “We are thankful for family and God’s protection on us and our four children during 2012. We have traveled a lot of miles commuting to the bus, to school and getting to and from our jobs. God is so good and we are expecting even greater things in 2013!” http://www.souldoutquartet.com/home.cfm

Evie Hawkins of EHA-Nashville: “This has been one of the most trying years of my life. Many personal changes have come about, but the Lord has stood faithfully by my side. I am so thankful for my family, church family, good health, and great artists who allow me to work for them! But I really have been dwelling on this fact lately: No matter where life leads me and what problems I face, I am so thankful He never changes. This is the one comforting constant in my life: the Lord never leaves my side. If I step away from Him like a toddler slips away from a parent, I may get hurt, because I’ve just hurt

myself. Thankfully, He loves unconditionally, like I do my children. I’m thankful God put a spiritual leader in my life when I was a child. My mother taught me these things and so did my pastor, Rev. Melvin Brown. I wouldn’t trade all the riches of earth for these two people!” http://www.eha-nashville.com/

Donna King

Donna King

Donna King of Vertical Sky and Flight Studio: “It’s hard to keep my words to a minimum in general, but especially when attempting to express my gratitude for this year, 2012! But, in an attempt to at least scratch the service, I thank God first, for His presence in my life, and that He blessed me in ways that could only be His Ways! I realize more everyday just how much higher His ways are than mine. I am overwhelmingly thankful for my new marriage and my amazing husband, with whom I share a love I never thought possible. Zane King is such an incredible gift. He brings me joy on a daily basis, he shares in my dreams (which are our dreams). He’s even funny! A lot of people don’t know that! I am also thankful, beyond words, for the ways in which God provided rescue, this year, in situations that were very, very difficult. We faced some huge challenges in 2012, and God not only walked through them with us, He also made a way where there seemed to be no way, and He brought amazing deliverance. If I could explain all the details, I would, but suffice to say, God heals, God restores, God delivers! 2012, an extraordinary year of thankfulness for me!” http://www.verticalskyonline.com/ and http://www.facebook.com/FlightStudioNashville?filter=3

Amber Nelon Thompson and The Nelons

Amber Nelon Thompson and The Nelons

Amber Nelon Thompson of the Nelons: “I am thankful for my family and friends! If not for them I don’t know where I’d be today. I’m also thankful for the gift of singing. I never will be one of those people who dread going to work because I absolutely love what I do. But mostly I’m thankful for salvation. It is an amazing feeling to know that I have a God who loves and cares about me and who died so that I could live and one day be with Him and my loved ones who have already gone! He also gives new mercies and grace every day so when I mess up He still loves me and forgives me! His love amazes me!” http://www.thenelons.com/home.cfm

Larry Davis

Soloist Allen Hester, Seoul, South Korea: “I am thankful for God allowing me to serve Him. I am thankful to be in the ministry. I am thankful that I get to see lives change. I am thankful for the Korean students that God has given me to disciple.” http://www.facebook.com/allenhester

Jonathan Bond of Young Harmony: “I’m thankful that even in the valley, God’s still God!” http://www.youngharmony.com/

Mark Lanier, Soloist and songwriter: “That I’ve made it to 2012! Basically God has given me 55 years. Memories, blessings, desires of my heart, someone to love and be loved by!” http://www.marklanierministries.com/

Susan Peck Jackson of Karen Peck and New River: “I am thankful that God has blessed me with a wonderful family, great friends, and a chance to share the love of Jesus.” http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/

opportunity of choices. Also, I’m so very thankful for the talent He has given me   and the desire to be His servant.” http://edcrawfordministries.com/

Rodney Griffin of Greater Vision: “I’m thankful to have been in the same group for 19 years. Hard to believe!” http://greatervisionmusic.com/

Dusty Wells, Sales and Marketing, Word Entertainment: “What a great year 2012 has been! I am most thankful that God has taken me to a new place in Him this year, a place of refuge and strength. This year has been pivotal to me in regards to finally just sitting still and listening for His amazing voice to speak. And He has! So excited to see what 2013 has in store for all of us.” http://www.facebook.com/dusty.wells.50

Kingsmen Welcome Bob Sellers

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on December 19, 2011 – 4:13 pm -

The Kingsmen just announced that, following Bryan Hutson’s departure, they have hired Bob Sellers:

The Kingsmen are pleased to welcome Bob Sellers to the quartet, filling the vacancy created by the departure of Bryan Hutson. “I am so excited to become a member of the legendary Kingsmen Quartet family,” says Bob. “I’m thankful for this opportunity that Ray and Brandon Reese have given me, and I look forward to meeting every single Kingsmen fan.

 

“The first song I recall singing with my mom and sister in our little country church was ‘A Place Where The Hungry Are Fed,’ so it is a dream come true to now stand on stage with the group that introduced that song and so many other great songs to Gospel music. I will work with all that is within me to continue the proud tradition that is The Kingsmen Quartet and, most importantly, to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ in song effectively. I cannot wait to see what God has in store!

 

 

Bob’s first concert will be in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada on December 31, 2011.
