Freedom Quartet, one of today’s premier Southern Gospel quartets, has signed with Chapel Valley Music Group’s Inspire label. This extremely talented group of guys have become fan favorites. In 2015, Freedom Quartet was awarded the Singing News Favorite New Traditional Quartet of the year. 

Even though the group has seen much success recently, the members are no strangers to Southern Gospel music. Owner and tenor singer, John Rulapaugh, has assembled a powerful lineup. The quartet consists of popular bass vocalist, Burman Porter; longtime favorite lead, Dale Shipley; and baritone, Scott Mullins. 

Recently, Freedom Quartet was a part of the Southern Gospel Music Guild’s Harmony Honors television taping. That program aired on the TBN network. 

Chapel Valley Music’s Vice President, Richard Hyssong, states, “We cannot begin to tell you how thrilled we are to start this relationship with Freedom Quartet. John and I serve on the Southern Gospel Music Association’s Board of Directors and I have seen firsthand the vision that he has for this quartet and the industry. Be watching as we will be doing special Release Parties, radio singles and some really cutting edge projects that the Southern Gospel listener will love and want to be a part of.” 

John Rulapaugh explains, “I have watched Chapel Valley Music for a few years and have been very impressed with their level of commitment to the artists on their labels. We are very happy to be joining a company that wants their artists to succeed at the highest level.” 

Freedom Quartet’s new recording “Hymns of Faith & Freedom” produced in part by Gerald Wolfe will be released Monday September 26th at the National Quartet Convention. Be watching as there will be a special meet and greet and CD release party announcement soon.
