Country gospel quartet to perform in Brownwood

Voted the Country Gospel Quartet of the Year, The Marksmen will be appearing and performing live at the Brownwood Coliseum on Monday, March 12, at 7 p.m. The Marksmen have evolved over a period of 30 years into one of the top Bluegrass Gospel Groups in the nation. For many years a dynamic force on the southern gospel circuit, The Marksmen began to tread new ground on the bluegrass circuit as well but always with a gospel message. In 1991, The Marksmen won video of the year for their production of “Grandpa Was a Farmer,” at the Independent Country Awards. Then in 1992, they received a Telly Award with their video of “Wagon Tracks.” In 1993, 94 and 95, at the National Bluegrass Awards, The Marksmen won SPBGMA’s award for the best bluegrass/gospel group of the year. They have also been nominated in the top ten of the CCMA awards for their video, “Grandpa Was a Farmer,” and Mark Wheeler for best musician. The Marksmen consists of two fathers and two sons, Earle and Mark Wheeler and Keith and Darrin Chambers. Tickets are available from any Pecan Valley Kiwanis Member or by calling 641-0854. They will also be available at the door for $6.
