The Essential Playlist #6: Kingdom Heirs

The Kingdom Heirs have been around for over 30 years, but began to become major players in southern gospel in 1986, when they became the full-time resident quartet at Dollywood, and signed with Sonlite.  With an outstanding early-90s lineup of Rick Strickland, Clayton Inman, Steve French, and Bob Caldwell, they gained even more popularity.  Arthur …

NQC 2012: Wednesday Night

What a tiring, but rewarding day it was yesterday!  After a long, full day of driving, we made it into Freedom Hall right as Mike Speck was leading some congregational singing before bringing out the first quartet of the night.  I love the idea of Quartet Night, and I’m so glad we were able to …

Release Year: 2011 Album Rank for Group: #1 of 10 Here’s a blurb: My favorite album of 2011 kept climbing up this list the more I listened to it.  The Kingdom Heirs did nothing groundbreaking here, besides hiring one of the best tenors in gospel music.  I don’t know if any of the songs will …

Top 100: #40 When You Look at Me (Kingdom Heirs)

Release Year: 2009 Album Rank for Group: #5 of 10 Here’s a blurb: The Kingdom Heirs’ 2009 release is difficult for me to rank because it doesn’t have the balance that many of these top albums have.  There are some songs on When You Look at Me that I love, including one of my all-time …
