Patriot Quartet Completes New Project and Signs with EHA-Nashville

Written by SGN Scoops on December 19, 2011 – 4:18 am -

{EHA-Nashville, TN} Mansion Entertainment’s Patriot Quartet of Salvisa, KY, completed their latest project this month in the TBN studios in Hendersonville, TN and signed with EHA-Nashville. Producers, John Mathis, Jr. and Bill Dykes, (Manor House) noted their confidence and excitement in continuing to work with this established quartet that continues their music ministry that started as a trio in 1996. Their trademark is to stand for “God and Country” and to uplift and encourage in song. Traditionally, their style is similiar to the The Statesmen, The Blackwood Brothers, and the original Oak Ridge Boys quartets. Original songs, stability, and consistency keep the Patriot Quartet in the forefront as one of the region’s most beloved groups. They took their ministry to a national level in early 2011 with their Mansion signing and release of “Dedicated to the Cause” project. “Songs of Comfort” ministers to those mourning a loss and especially those who have suffered through the death of a loved-one. They are currently filling their 2012 calendar and accepting booking dates. Manor House Executive Director, Bill Dykes notes, “It’s an honor to work with this group of men who are not only dedicated to the ministry, but are on fire to keep our quartet style of music alive and well for future generations. They are a blessing to promote!”
