Palmetto State Quartet ends, Glass Temple begins
In May, the Palmetto State Quartet announced that they would be retiring the Palmetto State Quartet name and holding a contest to find a new name. According to a press release distributed this morning, plans have changed slightly; bass singer and manager Larry Strickland will join the group name in retirement. Lead singer David Staton states: “I have never met anyone who loves to sing and has a passion for this music like Larry does. We are going to miss having him on the road, but if it’s at all possible, you may just see Larry show up at some of our dates. Larry is one of the few true living legends in gospel music and we have been honored to stand next to him and sing.”
Existing Palmetto State Quartet members Jeremy Easley, David Staton and DaRon Maughon will continue performing under the group name Glass Temple. This new group name will take effect on October 1st; Glass Temple’s debut recording will come out later this year.
