Tribute Quartet’s name came from its version of preserving the heritage and promoting the future of Southern Gospel music. They desired to pay homage to the legends they grew up admiring, carrying that torch respectfully. Yet, they wanted to create a sound uniquely their own, becoming the kind of quartet they believed the Lord was calling them to be today. That's how the Tribute Quartet began. In appearance, warmth and style, this gifted group, based in Nashville, has become exactly what it set out to be, representing Southern Gospel at its finest. — tributequartet.com
