First Look: Jonathan Mattingly with The Blackwood Brothers Quartet

With the departure of Michael Helwig, Billy Blackwood had quite a challenge finding a new lead singer to take his place. That challenge has now been met with the hiring of 24-year old Jonathan Mattingly, who formerly sang with the Mattingly Family. He has been with the group for a couple of weeks now and this was my first chance to see the new lineup as they performed at the Stamps-Baxter School of Music in Murfreesboro, TN this afternoon. Here are two of the songs from their appearance:

Diana is from the Atlanta, Georgia area and is a relatively recent southern gospel fan, having started listening avidly about 15 years ago. With easy access to eastern Alabama, southeastern Tennessee and north and central Georgia, Diana attends as many concerts as her schedule allows to see a wide variety of artists.

    Great songs and sound by the BB quartet! Mattingly has a very full, mature and mellow voice and is a pleasure to hear in his solos. The balance is amazingly good for a live performance, Thanks for sharing this.

    I’ve known Jonathan Mattingly ever since he was a little boy. He is a very good singer and an even better MAN!! He will bless everyone in his music and his dedication to the Lord.
