DID YOU KNOW?: The National Quartet Convention was first held in 1957 in Memphis Tennessee. From its inception the quartet convention included more than just all male quartets on the program. That very first event invited the Chuck Wagon Gang, Johnson Sisters and Speer Family to name a few. So the next time someone complains that the quartet convention is misleading because it doesn’t feature all quartets, let them know it was never designed to be that way.
**With the 2015 edition of the National Quartet Convention getting under way tomorrow evening, Southern Gospel Views from the Back Row will once again be providing nightly recaps of all the hits and misses from the concert stage as I will be watching the event via webcast.
