Clayton Inman was your typical baseball dad. He was president of the Sevier County (Tenn.) High School baseball program’s booster club. His son was a left-handed first baseman who appeared to be destined to play at the collegiate level. However, a detour altered that path.

Now, the Inmans have been playing on the same team for the past 15 years. “It’s been awesome,” Clayton emphasizes. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

 

However, for that to happen, Scotty Inman had to don a different type of uniform … trading his jersey and cleats for a coat and tie.

“Growing up, his love for this music was always there,” Clayton points out. “He was a pretty talented athlete. I never pushed him to do this.”

Triumphant Quartet: Living In Harmony

Written by Staff on July 10, 2015 – 12:17 pm -

Triumphant

Triumphant

By Paige Givens
​     Southern Gospel music has been blessed with an abundance of amazing quartets, whose sound and talent keep people coming back for more. There is something about quartet singing that goes beyond simple enjoyment for both the singer and the listener. Gospel quartets have the ability to take the songs of old, songs of our Christian heritage, as well as new and inspired songs, and wrap them tightly in beautiful harmonies before sending them straight to the heart.

In this industry full of wonderful quartets, there are some that especially stand out, and Triumphant Quartet is one such group. Since they formed in 2003, Triumphant Quartet has enjoyed an exquisite harmony both on and off stage. They demonstrate the joys of living in harmony with one another and with the Lord.
The group actually began as singers for Sunday services in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Tenor David Sutton recalls, “Eric Bennett, Jeff Stice, and I had been volunteering at the Louise Mandrell Theater in Pigeon Forge, singing at her Sunday morning worship services that she held for tourists. She had the vision of having a gospel quartet at her theater doing morning shows and a Sunday night show. She approached us about the opportunity of forming a group to do this. To be honest with you, when she did, we all said, ‘We are happy and not interested but we will keep it in our prayers.’ A little time passed and she asked again. This went on for several weeks and finally we agreed to sit down and talk with her about what her vision was. Because of her vision and lots of prayer, this group was formed, and God continues to bless.”

David goes on to explain how the group was named Triumphant Quartet. “The name Triumphant came from three fans. When the group formed we were known as Integrity. After a little over a year of singing, we received a letter from a well-known business that had the same name. They were in our same genre of music and felt because of the years they had used the name, there was a conflict of interest, so we decided to take a negative and turn it into a positive. We got with the management team at the theater and started coming up with ideas. We came up with the idea to let the fans pick our name. We started doing national marketing asking fans to submit names. We had over 3500 names submitted. We narrowed it down to our top five and went to Trademark attorneys to search the names out. Our top pick was Triumphant. We had three different people submit this name. We invited all three people to our show one Sunday night at the theater and presented them all with gifts.”

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

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,

Triumphant Quartet In Concert At Douglasville Georgia

Written by Staff on January 9, 2015 – 10:36 am -

Triumphant Quartet

Triumphant Quartet

On January 7, 2015, we were in New Genesis Church in Douglasville, GA to see the award-winning Triumphant Quartet.  This church has a lot of Southern Gospel Concerts and Triumphant Quartet is one of everyone’s  favorite groups that visit there.

image3Triumphant Quartet has been singing together since 2003 when they started singing at the Louise Mandrell Theater in their home town Pigeon Forge,TN.  Before forming the Quartet, one of the members was at the theater almost every Sunday morning, singing in the worship service there.  Louise decided she needed a full time quartet to appear daily at the theater so she contacted them and what started there is now history.  The four guys: Eric Bennett, David Sutton, Clayton Inman and Scotty Inman, have been singing together ever since.  In 2008, after Ms. Mandrell left the theater, they felt it was God’s will for them to go on the road full-time.
mercys call edit

Mercy’s Call

Eric and David have been on stage singing together for several years. They had been performing in Dollywood together, and when Triumphant was formed, they asked Clayton and Scotty to join them.  Clayton had been singing with Won by One, a group he formed in the mid-’90’s, and Scotty had been with Poet Voices. The four voices then joined together to become one of the most awarded male quartets on the road today.

Eric Bennett

In Douglasville, Triumphant sang a good mixture of songs: fast, old, and new, and then Eric did a great closing invitation.  A local group, Mercy’s Call, which consists of Jennifer McAllister, Joey Peace and Jelinda Hill, opened the concert.

A great time was had by all! To experience Triumphant in a venue near you, visit their website at http://www.triumphantquartet.com/

Triumphant Quartet Feels That Simple Is Good.

Triumphant three

Triumphant Quartet Feels That Simple Is Good.

By Craig Harris

 

It was more than good enough on June 21 as the group invaded Edmonson County (Ky.) High School for the sixth annual Jeff Stice Homecoming Concert.

“It’s emotional for me,” Stice – the group’s pianist – said. “I look around, and I see teachers who taught me, a boss I used to work for in Bowling Green (Ky.) … I look out, and I see all these different
chapters of my life looking at me. It’s intimidating. It’s emotional. It’s a blessing.” The group has annual dates in or near each of the group members’ hometowns.

“It’s always exciting to go back home,” Triumphant tenor singer David Sutton said. “Our home folks
have supported us since we were little kids. We look forward to going back home. “It always seems electrifying.”

Stice – an Edmonson County High graduate – typically plays two piano solos during the group’s performance each evening, consisting of either “Down From His Glory” (which he opened with that night), “Mansion Over the Hilltop” or “Halleleujah Chorus.”

His homecoming concert kicked off with Stice taking the stage and performing a series 10 piano solos, intermingled with Stice’s emcee work. Stice spoke of how he began to play the piano and of the instrumental support of his family and friends, calling his dad Jimmy his hero but admitting that he is
his mother Evonia’s “moma’s boy.”

After Stice’s artistry was displayed for the first hour, Clayton Inman and Scotty Inman joined Stice on stage for the dramatic and powerful “He Is,” which earned a standing ovation from the crowd. “It’s
energy … they’re going to get energy from us,” Stice said.

Then, the group took off into what most of the group members agree is a nightly staple, performing
the chart-topping “Saved By Grace.” “It’s my favorite song we’ve ever recorded,” Stice said. “It’s an
anointed song.
“Carroll McGruder is a great writer. I’m so happy for him (receiving the Broadcast Music, Inc., Songwriter of the Year Award recently and being honored for writing ‘Saved By Grace’).”
Sutton added, “The one I still love doing every night is ‘Saved By Grace.’ I love that song. I love the
message. That and “Thinking of a Mansion” … I love both of those songs. Those two songs are just as
fresh tonight as when we started.” Read more »
