Today, joining founding member Jim is the legendary singer and member of the Gospel Music Hall Of Fame, Buddy Burton, as well as, the equally talented Larry Beck, Larry Parker, Roy Bray, and Johny Washburn.
Bill Traylor, President of Mansion Entertainment states, “I love the traditional quartet sound that started the phenomenon, which today we call Southern Gospel Music. The Southmen Quartet is the ambassador of that beautiful 4-part harmony sound that so many people enjoy. We are so pleased to have the opportunity to work with such legends and radio will love it too, especially my good friend, Robin Clayton, at WLRC in Walnut, MS.”
