  1. I've listened to quartet music my entire life and I never knew why the Crownsmen never became a standard group like the Kingsmen, the Cathedrals, Gold City or any of those groups. In my humble opinion the Crownsmen Quartet were just as good a male quartet than any of the more famous male quartets. My grandmother (Marie Lawson of the Lawson Family) told me as a child that they sang with the Crownsmen a lot and that these were true gentlemen and gospel professionals on and off the stage. I know for this quartet fan they've always been a favorite and their records are just as dear to me as any of the other groups that I own. Thanks Mark for including the Crownsmen on your website!
