The National Quartet Convention sent a survey to 2023 attendees this week seeking input on whether the stage should return to the center of the main room. An “in the round” configuration was used for many years in Louisville and continued in Pigeon Forge through 2019. The current end stage setup was tested in 2020 at the downsized NQC Fall Festival and implemented when the full event returned in 2021.
Scotty Inman and Daywind Music Publishing announced their exclusive songwriting agreement. The announcement comes on the heels of Daywind signing Inman as a recording artist.
The Troy Burns Family & The Inspirations announced the return of the popular Singing In The Smokies to Bryson City, North Carolina on July 4-6 in 2024. The event will include the Inspirations all three nights with a 60th Anniversary Reunion on July 6th. Other groups slated to appear include the Kingsmen, Griffith Family, Greater Vision, Chuck Wagon Gang, Karen Peck & New River, Jeff Tolbert & Primitive Road, and Mark Trammell Quartet.
