Arden, North Carolina (June 6, 2024) — Legendary quartet The Kingsmen recently stopped by the offices of Horizon Records to celebrate their No. 1 song, “Unstoppable God,” which topped May’s Singing News chart.

“What a crazy, amazing ride these last few years have been!” says The Kingsmen’s Thomas Nalley. “This song is a reminder that, through all of life’s ups and downs, our God is in control. No matter what obstacles are put in our way, His will and His power are UNSTOPPABLE!”

Horizon Records’ Greg Bentley adds, “It has been an honor for Horizon Records to represent The Kingsmen for more than 30 years now. With eight number one songs and multiple top fives through this time, The Kingsmen show no signs of slowing down. Their current lineup of Thomas Nalley, Cole Watson, Alan Kendall, Brady Jones and Ray Dean and Brandon Reese is as strong as ever — and “Unstoppable God” reaching the top spot proves that. We look forward to another 30 years representing this legacy of Gospel music!”

"Unstoppable God” is the title cut from the group’s latest album released in February. The quartet’s latest radio single from this album, “Praying For The Prodigal” is quickly climbing the charts.

About The Kingsmen
For more than half a century, no other group has secured such a far-reaching legacy as that of The Kingsmen Quartet. Since 1956, this group has risen from humble beginnings in the mountains of western North Carolina to become one of the most beloved and innovative groups in Christian music. Countless renowned artists have been a part of this great lineage, such as Eldridge Fox, “Big” Jim Hamill, Ray Dean Reese, Squire Parsons, Johnny Parrack, Anthony Burger, Ernie Phillips, Gary Sheppard, and a host of others. The momentum has not stopped as this group continues to help define the Southern Gospel genre for a whole new generation of music lovers, perhaps more so than any other group.

In the mid-fifties, brothers Raymond, Reese, and Louis McKinney formed a gospel group, traveling locally throughout the western part of the Carolinas and completing dozens of recordings by the late 60’s. By the early 70’s, area natives Eldridge Fox and Ray Dean Reese joined this emerging quartet and in 1974 released their first live recording, “Big & Live” consisting of Fox, Reese, Jim Hamill, and Johnny Parrack. This Dove award winning album brought to gospel music, fresh arrangements and catchy melodies that would later become southern gospel classics, such as “Glory Road,” “Look for Me At Jesus Feet,” and “Love Lifted Me.” This would be the start of many legendary live albums for the Kingsmen. Traveling with a live band, the Kingsmen became one of few groups during this era to be able to perform with three to five musicians, granting them individuality and innovation in the industry.
