Brown's Ferry Four

A gospel quartet formed at WLW in Cincinnati by Merle Travis, Grandpa Jones, and Alton and Rabon Delmore, the Browns Ferry Four recorded 44 songs on King Records in the late 1940s and early 1950s and pretty much set the standard for later gospel quartets. Others who filled in on the recordings when one of the original members couldn’t be present were Red Foley, Red Turner, and Clyde Moody. Their entire recorded output has been reissued on a two CD set by King with a booklet of notes by Gary Reid. Many years later, the Hee Haw Gospel Quartet was modeled after the Brown’s Ferry Four.
