NQC | Sunday Night

“There’s nothing like Eastern Tennessee hospitality,” said Gerald Wolfe at last night’s bonus concert. And it’s true, from the moment you drive into Pigeon Forge and see the Great Smoky Mountains towering above the town, you feel like you’ve come home. For fans of Southern Gospel Music, it is home. Home to the industry’s largest…

New Tenor / New Adventure

If you’re an avid concert goer, then you know the feeling of passing a “welcome to [insert city name]” sign and think, “There’s a town here?” There’s nothing quite like it, eh? Well, the first weekend in September, when the Mark Trammell Quartet had their new tenor with them for the first time, I had…

MTQ Homecoming | Golf, Lunch and Singing Saturday!

For some folks, Saturday morning dawned early. Early enough to be at the clubhouse at Silver Lakes Golf Course at 8:00 AM where the Annual Golf Tournament was getting ready to kick off. Now keep in mind, I’m not a golfer…but everyone at Homecoming Saturday night heard how Randy’s team beat Mark’s team by two…

MTQ Homecoming | Friday Night

A few weeks ago, Southern Gospel Music fans learned that tenor Blake Buffin was leaving the Mark Trammell Quartet to return to his home state of Ohio. Those attending the Mark Trammell Quartet Homecoming on July 26th – 28th in Anniston, Alabama would be the ones to see him in concert for the very last…

The Only Light In Town…

A long intermission. Missing singers during the last half of the program. That’s how the Second Half Quartet accidentally fell together in 2014 at the Truthseekers Homecoming. When the quartet retired in the fall of 2018, it seemed only fitting that they appear one more time at the event of their birthplace. Saturday night at…

God Has Provided – The Mark Trammell Quartet

What has God provided for you lately? Are you worry free because of His peace? Encouraged by godly examples of folks who walked through trials faithfully? If you’re waiting on God’s provision in your life, or, celebrating the provision you’ve already received – you need a copy of the Mark Trammell Quartet’s 2019 release, God…

Singing at Sea Cruise – 2019 In Review!

Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance Of The Seas sat anchored at the cruise terminal in Tampa Bay. In just a few hours, the ship would be filled with over 2,000 Gospel music fans for the 45th annual Singing At Sea Cruise; and I couldn’t be happier to leave all the cold temps and snow at home for…

When The Lights Go Out

If it’s January and you just spent two days in a car driving to Florida, you might be going on a cruise. And if you’re going on a Gospel Music Cruise, you will definitely find a concert to attend on the way down! That was the case for my crew on Friday, when we stopped…

Mark Trammell Quartet in Hazelwood, MO

Last Saturday, I was grateful for a sunny drive on my way to a concert in the St. Louis area.  A few trees were even turning yellow and red along the highway; so peaceful compared to our last concert in St. Louis. (During the summer, we went to a concert and all ended up hiding…
