Southern Gospel Music

Macy Smith-Tenor, Earl Hendrix-Baritone, Evelyn Smith (Mrs. Macy Smith)-Piano, Johnny Beeson-Lead, Kenneth Beeson-Bass

It was the summer of 1948 when four men of the Lord decided to go to the "Normal School of Music" in Fresno California, specifically for the purpose of quartet training. Each man was in his own right already a trained musician, being that they were teachers and music directors. This is where these men met. They decided to gather at the home of Macy Smith to have some fun just harmonizing. Macy's wife Evelyn was at the piano (by the way, she was always a wonderful pianist) and that was the beginning of the Golden State Quartet. In the 1990's Macy started a group called the "Gospel Tones."

Though they have all gone to be with the Lord they are all "Hero's of the Faith". It was such an honor to have known such wonderful people of God and to follow in the tradition started 65 years ago.
