Jacob Kluttz 

Troy Burns, owner and singer, states, “Jacob Kluttz is an amazing 18-year-old. In over fifty years in Southern Gospel music, I have never encountered a young man with his God-given abilities. Jacob is entirely unencumbered by musical theory and is almost to the point of being servant-like in his mastery of the piano.”

“I am so thankful for everything God has done for me in my life,” says Kluttz. “He has blessed me beyond measure and I want to thank TBF for making me feel so welcome. Troy and Tammy treat me like their own and I look forward to the future and what God has in store for our ministry.”

Troy Burns Family welcomes Shane Mathis as new baritone

Tammy Burns of the Troy Burns Family shares these thoughts on the addition. “For five months we spent countless hours seeking Gods will for our ministry through prayer and discernment. We only want the absolute best for the Troy Burns Family when it comes to adding an additional person. With over 40 submissions we personally interviewed only 3.

It was clear that Shane Mathis of (Gainesville, GA.) was a perfect fit. Troy and I agreed that Shane’s heart for the ministry and love for the music matched ours to a T and that Shane was God sent. We are both blessed and happy to have Shane as the newest member of the group.  We can’t wait to see what the future holds on this new journey for the Troy Burns Family.”

Nashville, TN December 29, 2014  Les Butler and Southern Gospel Music legend Troy Burns recently announced an artist management agreement between Butler Music Group and the Troy Burns Family.

When asked about working with the Troy Burns Family, Butler Music Group’s Les Butler said, “In my 37 years of interviewing artists on the radio the names Kenny Hinson, Rusty Goodman, Glen Payne, and Troy Burns are most often referred to as mentors when talking to today’s top lead singers.  To say I’m honored to work with one of my heroes is an understatement. The music and sound of the Troy Burns Family is in my sweet spot – a little bit southern, a little bit bluegrass, a little bit country, but all Gospel!”

While discussing Butler Music Group, Troy Burns added, “We are celebrating 50 years in Southern Gospel Music.  Over the years, we have experienced almost every whim and means to promote our ministry.  We are always striving to find ways to best maximize exposure for sales and concert dates in an effort to effectively share Jesus Christ.  It’s with a breath of fresh air that the Troy Burns Family has joined with Butler Music Group.”  Burns continues, “The President of BMG, Les Butler, is no stranger to the Southern Gospel Music industry.  His tenure with The Singing News Magazine and Front Porch Fellowship has etched in stone his leadership and honest approach to management.  Troy Burns Family believes that hard work, dedication to Christ, strong relationships with industry leaders coupled with cutting edge technology – is still the very best way to accomplish God’s work.  Troy Burns Family blasts into 2015 with a new zeal and determination and a new team.”

About the Troy Burns Family

Troy Burns traveled and sang lead as a founding member of the Inspirations for 30 years.   Today, Troy and his family travel and sing as the Troy Burns Family.  Close family harmony and loving Jesus is what the Troy Burns Family is all about.  Troy also travels with the popular quartet, Archie Watkins and Smoky Mountain Reunion.  He has recorded over 700 songs in his career including iconic tunes such as “Jesus is Coming Soon,” “Touring that City,” “Is that Footsteps?” and many more.  He has performed in over 6,000 concerts and has been a regular on The Gospel Singing Jubilee and other television programs.  Troy has truly earned the title “Gospel Music Legend” and is seen as a vocal inspiration to many young artists today.

Troy’s wife Tammy has had formal training as a singer and sang for The Sound of Youth from Robbinsville, North Carolina.  Tammy Burns is the only female to travel and sing with The Inspirations Quartet from Bryson City North Carolina.  In the 1980s, Tammy toured for 3 months and sang tenor with The Inspirations at every date during that tenure.  Tammy’s voice has been compared to Patsy Cline and Barbara Streisand.  She will win your heart when you hear her sing.

The newest member of Troy Burns Family is Roland Kesterson, a 30 year old preacher from Crossville, Tennessee.  Roland became a Christ follower at age 11 and was called to preach at 14.  He sang with his family growing up and then sang for the bluegrass group, Set Apart, for 7 years.  Roland has been nominated several times as the top male vocalist in Bluegrass Gospel Music via the Front Porch Fellowship Bluegrass Gospel Fan Awards.  He has written and recorded several songs that have charted in Singing News Magazine.  His smooth harmonies form a third part for Troy Burns Family that is unparalleled in Southern Gospel Music.
