Annual Event Largest Single Event Ever Hosted by City of Pigeon Forge, TN!

The hills of the Great Smoky Mountains are filled with more than music these days! Sounds of phones ringing and emails sent back and forth is filling the air at the office of the NQC (National Quartet Convention) as Clarke Beasley, and everyone associated with the annual event, are busily preparing for thousands of Gospel music lovers to descend upon Pigeon Forge, TN for the 2014 NQC!

“We are absolutely overwhelmed by the response our move to Pigeon Forge has received,” Beasley stated. “We set high goals and high expectations when we decided to move to Pigeon Forge, but we would not have dared to project this kind of attendance. Not since the late 1990’s have sales been this high and an all-time attendance record is a real possibility.”

Especially exciting is the fact that 30% of the crowd for this year will be first-time attendees of the event.

“The NQC is the biggest prolonged group event in Pigeon Forge’s history, and everyone in the tourism and hospitality industry is geared up and ready,” said Leon Downey, executive director of the Pigeon Forge Department of Tourism. Beasley emphasized that city, county and state officials have all been tremendously supportive and many of them will be present at a special grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, September 22nd, at the main entrance of the LeConte Center.

The 2014 edition of NQC – the National Quartet Convention – will be held September 21-27, 2014 in the brand-new Leconte Center in gorgeous Pigeon Forge, TN!

National Quartet Convention 2013 Webcast Huge Success

Written by SGN Scoops on September 26, 2013 – 8:18 am -

Louisville, KY - During the week of September 8 through September 14 thousands of Southern Gospel Music fans, representing at least 40 states and more than a half dozen foreign countries nqcnewlogotraveled to Louisville, KY, for the 56th Annual National Quartet Convention. While thousands enjoyed the sights and sounds of the NQC during it’s final year in the city of Louisville live and in person, according to NQC Executive Vice President, Clarke Beasley, almost as many people enjoyed the sights and the sounds of NQC 2013 via the NQC Webcast. “Many who were unable to attend the event in person had the opportunity to watch performances taking place in Freedom Hall live, as it happened, or on demand through the NQC’s  website,” Beasley explained. “All events taking place in Freedom Hall throughout NQC Week were made available through the Webcast.  The NQC Subscriber based Webcast achieved an all-time record number of subscribers and proved to be a tremendous success.” 
The NQC has offered the Webcast for several years now; however, in celebration of the final year in Louisville, the NQC made the Friday webcast available to the public for free. NQC Free Friday far exceeded expectations and produced viewership from all over the world, including more than 10,000 people in 26 different countries. “NQC Free Friday featured a true event broadcast experience,” Beasley stated, “ with dedicated hosts hosting the broadcast throughout the day.”  In addition to viewing the festivities of NQC, 2013 over the NQC Webcast on a computer, subscribers to the Webcast for the first time ever were also  able to view the Webcast on their televisions through their Roku device. This proved to be so popular that the NQC Board has announced that it intends to ultimately make its Roku channel available to the public as a free channel. “This a great opportunity and yet another way for the NQC to grow and expose the great music of the NQC to the world,” Beasley shares.
The NQC Webcast is available on demand throughout the end of November for those who missed viewing the event live. Fans may visit to enjoy the sights and sounds of NQC 2013.
The 2014 NQC moves from Louisville to the city of Pigeon Forge, TN, and will take place at the Leconte Center during the week of September 21-27. Complete information about the 2014 event, as well as a complete schedule of activities may be obtained by visiting
