There have been many things happen through the years at Mark V studios. But I believe when the Sheltons recorded Jesus Is Coming Soon and later was picked up by the Inspirations and the Oak Ridge Boys this was instrumental in all the there careers catapulting all these groups into a limelight they had never seen
Joe Huffman was involved.
I’ve known Chris Bryant even from his time with the Bibletones and always appreciated his voice and love for gospel music.
Praying the Lord leads and encourages him.
Do the Kingsmen and Gold City have permanent lead singers now?
The Kingsmen do not have a new lead singer yet. They have been using various fill-ins…mostly Phillip Hughes, but a few others like Bob Sellers have also filled in.
Cole Watson has been singing lead for Gold City for several months, but they have not yet made any sort of announcement that he will be the permanent lead nor have they updated their website.
