PromisedLand Quartet was formed in January 2000 with a goal of touring one weekend a month. That lasted for about three months, and the rest is history....
Traveling and working over 120 dates per year, this quartet has won the hearts of thousands. Their off-stage love and accessibility, both to and for the folks that come to their concerts, is one of the things that people seem to appreciate most. Their desire to provide the finest in quality music while effectively ministering to the lost and hurting is truly the objective in each and every concert.
The group has enjoyed radio & chart success with songs like “I Love that Music,” “Brand New Heart,” “In the Morning,” “Crown Him King,” “God’s Word Will Stand,” & “Carved in Stone.” In 2008, PromisedLand was honored with a Dove Award consideration in the category of Southern Gospel Album of the Year for their project entitled “Carved in Stone.”
PromisedLand Quartet has appeared on Christian TV via the Daystar Network, the NRB Network, World Harvest, and Gospel Music Television, making multiple appearances on “Great American Gospel” & “American Gospel Onstage.” PLQ has been honored with multiple appearances on the Main Stage of the National Quartet Convention and Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN. Tours internationally include stops in Canada, Ireland, Grand Turk, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, & St. Thomas.
