Its name came from its vision of “preserving the heritage and promoting the future of Southern Gospel music.” That was the goal, to pay homage to the legends its members grew up admiring, to carry that torch respectfully, and yet to create a sound uniquely their own, becoming the kind of quartet they believed the Lord was calling them to be today.
Two years after its formation, it was voted “The 2008 Horizon Group of the Year” by readers of the The Singing News Magazine at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, just a few months after being named the SGN's “2008 Breakthrough Artist of the Year.”
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.
The Tribute Quartet is a tailor-made group whose members are quick to point to the Lord as their tailor, giving Him the glory while garnering awards and winning the affections of admirers in concert halls and sanctuaries all across America.
Everything needed for a classic quartet is in place, including a folksy, storytelling emcee, whoGary Casto, its lead singer and manager, drawing from his West Virginia roots, has become through many years of experience, adding that endearing personality that bonds followers to their favorite groups.
Josh Singletary, a smooth baritone, not only gives this popular foursome a lighthearted touch with his irrepressible sense of humor, but doubles as its pianist, displaying a brilliance born of the classical training he received while growing up in Florida.
Riley Harrison Clark possesses a magnificent voice nurtured in Oklahoma and refined by the Steve Hurst School of Music. Though young, this seemingly seasoned vocalist shares a clear, pure, powerful tenor that draws congregations to their feet.
Anthony Davis, the newest member, completes this dynamic lineup as a crowd-pleasing bass that caresses and enunciates every note. An enthusiastic student of Gospel Music, this young man has laid aside his officer's shield in his home of Dyersburg to share his heart through this ministry.
Pastor Greg and Terri Casto and UCCMA President Don Warren invite you to attend this great Southern Gospel concert—free to the public.
