Clayton Inman

December is a time for sharing. At Christmas, we (Christians) celebrate The Greatest Gift of All, Jesus Christ.

Over the next few weeks we will be talking with many industry leaders, artists, pastors, promoters, etc. and asking them questions.  They will “share” the answer to the question in 10 seconds or less. We are asking for their best advice on many different topics.


Question #9 goes to Clayton Inman of Triumphant Quartet.  

Clayton, you’ve had a long successful career in gospel music. What advice would you give a young singer just starting out in 10 seconds or less?

Goodlettesville, TN – Popular Southern Gospel group, Triumphant Quartet has announced that an exclusive scheduling agreement has been reached with the Harper Agency. According to Harper Agency President, Ed Harper, the agency will immediately begin scheduling Triumphant for 2018.

Triumphant Quartet has been delighting audiences of all ages since the group first walked onto the stage at the Louise Mandrell Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN, in 2003. Their smooth harmonies and rich quartet sound quickly gained them national attention, recognition and concert demand. That popularity promoted the group in 2008 from singing daily at the Mandrell Theater to touring and performing in major concert venues, auditoriums and churches nationwide. Over the past decade, the Quartet has been voted Fan Favorite nine consecutive years and each individual group member has also received numerous nominations and honors. They have enjoyed many Top 40 radio hits, as well as five #1 releases, including their most recent hit, Chain Breaker. They have also received four Album of the Year honors, as well as three Song of the Year awards. “It is absolutely amazing how God has blessed Triumphant over the past 15 year,” states Triumphant Quartet member Eric Bennett. “During that time we have had a wonderful relationship with Michael Davis and the Dominion Agency; however, we are very excited about the future and this new opportunity with The Harper Agency. Over the past three decades, Ed and Jeff Harper have set the standard in excellence and professionalism. It is truly an honor to be represented by these two men and their fine staff.”

The rich heritage of The Harper Agency dates back to 1968 when Herman Harper took a position with Don Light Talent, booking recording artists. Herman became a leader in the field of Gospel talent agents and worked to build his own agency when his son, Ed joined the Harper team in 1986. “My brother, Jeff and I have had the privilege to work with many wonderful artists over the years,” Ed Harper states, “and we count it an honor to be involved in the music ministry of Triumphant Quartet.”

“We have known the members of Triumphant for years,” Harper continues. “Our relationship with David Sutton and Eric Bennett goes back to their days with The Kingdom Heirs. We’ve know Clayton Inman since the days when we first booked The Singing Americans, when Clayton was a member of that group. Over the years, we have also become great friends with Scott Inman, and we have been privileged to work with Aaron Dishman, the Quartet’s newest member, who was a member of The Dixie Melody Boys for several years. We have great respect for each of the guys individually and as a collective group. It is a wonderful opportunity for the Harper Agency to embark upon an exclusive booking agreement with Triumphant. We look forward to a great working relationship for many years to come.”

Memorial Day 2017

Written by scoopsnews on May 29, 2017 – 8:45 am -

As we remember the ones who have sacrificed for our freedom, Take a listen to

this song.

Somebody Died For Me

He was a troubled kid in and out of jail
When his daddy said this is the last time I’ll pay bail
He enlisted in the army and they sent him to Iraq
He was a different man when he came back
Somebody said the army must’ve whipped you into shape
But he said that’s not the reason that I’ve changed

Somebody died for me (before I even asked for help)
Gave his life for me (when I couldn’t save myself)
I cannot live the way I lived or be the way I was
Every day’s a gift to me because (somebody died for me)

Now they fold the flag and attach a silver star
While the grieving mother leans against his arm
Then he stands before the family and does his best to tell
How he survived the night his best friend fell
He says no one who knew him was surprised he died that way
He tried to live for Jesus oh he always used to say

And I don’t wanna waste a moment
Of the time I have left
With every breath I’m given
God help me not forget

“Somebody Died For Me” was written by Christy Sutherland and Kyle Matthews, recorded by Triumphant Quartet in 2009 on their album Everyday.

What a Great Night with Triumphant!

Written by scoopsnews on January 19, 2016 – 8:34 am -


Thanks to Lori Wise for pictures and report!

What a fantastic Monday evening! Norm Basden of Norchris Promotions, brought Grammy Nominated and 7 years running group of the year – Triumphant Quartet – to Oneonta High School – Oneonta, AL.

All concert proceeds went to helping the Blount County Fraternal Order of Police. Many of these fine officers were in attendance. What a blessing to be surrounded by these men and women who serve to protect us!

The group Surrendered (from Gadsden, AL) opened for Triumphant. So many great remarks were heard regarding this new and upcoming northeast Alabama gospel trio.

The weather outside may have been extremely cold, but the sounds of Southern Gospel music provided warmth to all in attendance.

Enjoy the pictures! Someone obviously left their phone backstage… Haha
