This week’s question is: who is your favorite Gospel Music Artist?

We will let the men go first this time:

Josh Jordan: Tough question. I find myself listening to the Cathedrals with Danny Funderburk in the lineup. Also, the original Hinsons. But I have several current groups I enjoy.

Gerald Wolfe: The Happy Goodman Family. They always had great songs, and they were exciting to watch.

Corey Pearson of the Diplomats

Corey Pearson: Growing up, I listened to the Kingsmen and Gold City. Loved the bands and loved Big Jim Hamill.

Gerald Wolfe-Greater Vision

Bob Sellers: Kingsmen.

Josh Townsend: The Collingsworth Family; love the tight family harmony.

Pat Barker: The Guardians. They pay me to say that

Clayton Inman: The Hinsons; I love the electricity they brought to a stage.

 

Let’s hear from the ladies…

Jaquita Lindsey: I have so many friends that sing that’s hard for me to choose.

Wendy Hayes: The Whisnants and Greater Vision. They both have been close friends of our family for many years and we love their ministries.

 

Were these answers what you expected? The artists list some great groups in Gospel music, past and present. Maybe some of their favorite’s style or vocal inflections have rubbed off on them…we will let you decide.

BOB SELLERS ANNOUNCES START OF SOLO MINISTRY, DEPARTURE FROM THE KINGSMEN

Written by Staff on April 30, 2018 – 7:22 am -

Bob Sellers

Bob Sellers announced his departure from the Kingsmen on April 30, 2018

 

Since 2011, I have had the privilege of singing lead with The Kingsmen Quartet of Asheville, NC. Each year we performed upward of 200 dates. I’ve commuted an average of 900 miles per week, which along with our touring schedule, has kept me away from home around 250 days each of those years. I’ve driven around 350,000 miles in total and gone through seven sets of tires and the better part of two automobiles throughout that time. My kids have grown from babies to young adults. I’ve missed most birthdays, big shots, base hits, recitals, first dates, broken bones, injuries and illnesses, etc., while my wife Kansas was left to handle it all mostly on her own. Still, God provided and sustained all of us throughout my tenure here. It has been an honor and a tremendous blessing in my life to be a part of “The Mighty Kingsmen”.

The Kingsmen Quartet Announce Departure Of Chris Jenkins

The Kingsmen Quartet

I’ve had experiences that I could have only dreamed of seven years ago, and I will forever be grateful to Ray Dean Reese and the entire Kingsmen organization for that opportunity.

King Solomon said, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” (Ecclesiastes 3:1), and this particular season of my life is drawing to a close. I am announcing my departure from The Kingsmen, effective June 16th, and with God’s help I will immediately begin a solo singing ministry. This decision was not made lightly, but only after more than a year of praying and receiving counsel from my pastor, family and dearest friends. My desire is to continue singing gospel music as God has called and equipped me to do, yet travel at a slower pace and set my own schedule, which will allow me to spend more time with my wife of nearly 20 years and our three children. Our oldest daughter Corley is about to graduate high school and will begin a college basketball career this Fall. Her little sister Ellie will be a high school freshman next year and our son Will will be a 7th grader. Each of them is growing steadily more involved in school and extra-curricular activities and my wife has to juggle all this activity and a career of her own as a 6th grade teacher. I am beyond excited about once again becoming more involved in all of their lives, while managing my personal ministry.

I will be available for worship services, homecomings, revivals and other church events as well as for concerts, fairs, conferences, etc. and am currently accepting bookings for the remainder of this year and beyond.

Visit www.bobsellersministries.com to schedule an appearance and to keep up with everything regarding my ministry.

You may also reach me by email at office@bobsellersministries.com and by calling or texting (205) 331-9997.

Also, stay in touch with me on social media sites including Facebook (www.facebook.com/bobsellersministries), Twitter (@BobSellersSings) and Instagram (@BobSellersSings).

One of the greatest blessings I’ve received over the years is making friends with so many of the nicest people in the world. I love you all and covet your support and especially your prayers for this exciting new venture, and I ask that you’ll continue to support and pray for The Kingsmen. I hope to see each of you soon!

Love In Christ,
Bob

What I’m Looking For in 2018 in Gospel Music by Craig Harris

Written by Staff on March 1, 2018 – 12:22 pm -

Cana's Voice. Photo by Craig Harris

Cana’s Voice. Photo by Craig Harris

Sure, it’s a new year, and with a new year comes endless possibilities. Here’s a few things that you may want to keep an eye on [in Gospel music] as we journey through 2018 …

 

The Hoppers have faced a series of challenges over the last couple of years, but it took many by surprise when Dean Hopper had two strokes in December of 2016. Then, when it appeared that he had recovered and was almost back to normal, Hopper suffered three more strokes in August. Hopefully, those medical hurdles are over, and the Hoppers can continue to produce great music, such as “Jesus the One,” “Song of Moses,” “If We Ever Gotta Look” and the title track off of their “Life Is Good” project … though one of the hidden gems from the project is the yet-to-be-released track No. 4, “Walk Two.”

 

I’m looking forward to seeing what lies ahead for the LeFevre Quartet now that those fellas have joined the Daywind Music family. Already possessing a commercial sound, it will be interesting to see if being a part one of the elite record companies in the Southern gospel industry leads to even greater success at radio and in other avenues as well.

Cana’s Voice burst on to the scene two years ago, featuring three dynamic vocalists in Doug Anderson (formerly of Ernie Haase and Signature Sound), TaRanda Beene (the Greenes) and Jody McBrayer (Avalon). Their debut project – “This Changes Everything” – contains hit songs “Heavenly Father” and “Jesus Never Fails.” My only complaint … I didn’t see Cana’s Voice in concert in 2017, due in part to a limited touring schedule as a result of all three group members having their own solo ministries. However, the group has started off 2018 along with David Phelps on the Big Voice Tour. What am I hoping for in 2018 … for my ears and their voices to spend more quality time together in live concert settings.

 

Group changes are never easy. However, as we all know, they’re inevitable. What a soulful asset that Ricky Braddy brought to the sound of Karen Peck and New River. I look forward to hearing the next male vocalist who comes on board with the uber-popular, award-winning trio, and I also look forward to seeing if the group can come close to producing a project that I dig as much as the Wayne Haun-produced “Hope For All Nations” (“Victory is Mine” and “I Know I’ll Be There” are simply top-notch).

 

There’s so many “good guys” in the Southern gospel industry, including Brian Lester, Susan Whisnant and Karen Peck Gooch to name just a few. Count Gary Casto among that contingent. Tribute Quartet’s manager and lead singer seems to be one of the hardest-working individuals in Southern gospel music as he’s involved in many different facets of the industry. With hard work comes reward, such as the group’s 2017 Dove Award nominations for Album of the Year (“Here for You,” produced by Haun) and Southern Gospel Recorded Song of the Year (“Never Forsaken”). What type of blessings does 2018 hold in store for a group that has risen to a point of being considered one of the top male quartet’s in Southern gospel music? I can’t wait to find out.

 

The Kingsmen Quartet Announce Departure Of Chris Jenkins

The Kingsmen Quartet

Speaking of personnel changes, I was listening to a Southern gospel radio station earlier in 2017 and heard a ballad that featured a voice that I was certain I recognized. It had to be Chris Jenkins. Well, it was. The Anchormen’s “I Heard About a Man” had recently been released to radio and has since been spun many more times on the airwaves. Well, Jenkins recently returned to the Kingsmen. His strong, consistent tenor vocals are an asset to any group. It’s sure to be a nice reunion for a group that has experienced significant success at radio with “Here I Stand Amazed” and “They Don’t Know.” Lot of fans will be looking forward to hearing Jenkins reunited with the rest of the Kingsmen.

 

Joseph Habedank has the ball rolling. After winning a Dove Award for Best Southern Gospel Album (“Resurrection,” also produced by Haun) in October, Habedank has now been nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Gospel Roots Album. He’s performed with Country Music icon Reba McEntire at the Dove Awards and is one of the few soloists selected to appear on the main stage at the National Quartet Convention. “Here He Comes” and “Just When You Thought” have been well-received releases from “Resurrection,” following hit songs such as “Welcome Home,” “Never No Never” and “Beauty of the Blood” off of his “Welcome Home” project. Can Habedank’s impressive ascension continue at the same pace in 2018? (Side note … Who knows what Haun – who is up for three GRAMMY Awards – will produce this year).

 

The Nelons continue to see doors open for their ministry, recently being invited to perform in front of the Supreme Court of the United States at the live nativity and then attending the White House Christmas Party in Washington, D.C. Two months earlier, the group won a 2017 Dove Award for Bluegrass/Country/Roots Recorded Song of the Year (“When Grandpa Sang Amazing Grace”). They’ve recently released an Americana project, “The Americana Sessions”.  I look forward to seeing how another year affects Autumn Nelon Clark, who has recently blossomed vocally and enhanced the Nelons’ overall sound.

 

Collingsworth Family Photo by Craig Harris

Can anybody deliver a ballad quite like the Collingsworth Family? They’re class personified, and it just seems to be one hit after another … “When He Carries Me Away,” “Gotta Get to Jesus,” “You’re About to Climb,” “It Matters to the Master,” “At Calvary,” “Fear Not Tomorrow” … and a couple of my personal favorites in “Tell the Mountain” and “I Found It All.” What’s the next big showstopper?

 

Jason Crabb has a huge fan base. He also has a huge talent, being an elite vocalist and having developed into a great communicator of a lyric. Now, he’s deeply delving into songwriting. Given Gerald Crabb’s immense success as a writer, does the apple fall far from the tree? We’ll get a glimpse over the next few months as some of his efforts will likely be unveiled.

 

Guardians. Photo by Craig Harris

Guardians. Photo by Craig Harris

The Guardians are a picture of consistency with Dean Hickman and Neil Uhrig, who were original members when the group formed in 1988. John Darin Rowsey joined the group in 2012, and now, the group has experienced great success in recent years, on the radio charts and on stages that the male trio has been invited to perform upon. I first heard their latest radio hit – “Present in the Presence of the King” – at Jackson Sings the Gospel last July in Jackson, Tenn., and immediately fell in love with it. It’s no surprise that it was released to radio and has rapidly climbed up the charts. “Packin’ Up,” “It Ain’t Gonna Worry Me Long,” “Somebody Prays,” “Shoutin’ Sounds” and “Let the Healing Begin” are all popular requests for the Guardians. What’s next for those guys? Stay tuned.

 

Southern gospel music fans adore the Mark Trammell Quartet, Greater Vision and Pat Barker. How then could they not love it when Greater Vision’s Gerald Wolfe, Rodney Griffin and Chris Allman teamed up with Trammell and Barker to form the Second Half Quartet. The response they receive is always overwhelming. Surely, there has to be something new – well, possibly a new version of something old – coming from that ensemble soon, right? I won’t be the only one looking forward to seeing what it will be.

And there’s lots of groups that we’re all constantly keeping an eye on. I’ll look forward to seeing what Legacy Five, Goodman Revival, the Jim Brady Trio, Gold City, the Booth Brothers, Triumphant, Jeff and Sheri Easter, the Whisnants, Greater Vision, the Mark Trammell Trio and many others have in store this year. They’re some of your favorites … and mine too. Here’s to lots of great music and many memorable moments over these last 10 months of 2018.

Bryan Hutson leaves Soul’d Out Quartet

Written by Staff on November 21, 2016 – 8:20 am -

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

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!
