In 2005 four young men got together to form a gospel quartet called Crystal River.  All four had been friends and were from the Knoxville area. Zackery McGill formed the group and joining him was Jeremy Lile, Dusty Barrett and Jeff Snyder. David Hoskins a DJ at a Knoxville radio station help the guys get started.  Later they signed with the Becky Simmons Agency and recorded several of Glenn Bates songs.

During the time they were singing, Jeff Snyder left the group to sing with The Greens and later Mike Bowling Family. Chris Whitaker, who had sung with Won by One, replaced Jeff. Jeremy Lile left the group to become the bass singer for Brian Free and Assurance. The group remained a trio for the remainder of the time. They also brought Michael Howard aboard to play the piano for the group. Zack, Dusty, Chris and Michael remain with the group until they disband with the final concert at Sunrise Baptist Church in Lawrenceville, GA.
Ten years from the beginning they are all back for one weekend for a three day concert reunion. Welcome back, Crystal River!
