Blackwood Brothers Quartet
About Blackwood Brothers Quartet
The Blackwood Brothers Quartet was formed in 1934 with brothers Roy, Doyle, James and Roy’s son, R.W. In the late 50s Roy and Doyle retired from traveling and in 1954 R.W. was killed in a tragic airplane crash. However the quartet with James, as the quartets’ leader and spokesman, established a new group of singers who would go on to become the best-known quartet in the history of gospel music.
In 2002, James Blackwood went to be with the Lord, but his sons, Jimmy (James Jr.) and Billy continue the 77-year tradition. The group today consists of Jimmy, Billy, tenor Wayne Little, bass Randy Byrd. The result is one of the best quartets you will ever hear!
