Goodlettsville, TN - One of Christian music's leading booking agencies, The Harper Agency, has announced the signing of popular quartet, The Old Paths. The announcement comes on the heels of the group's recent Number One national hit, "God's Great," their second Number One national hit from their Right Now recording on Crossroads Music's Sonlite Records label. The song peaked at Number One in the June issue of The Singing News Magazine. Sonlite Records President, Chris White is thrilled with the success of the group's debut release on the Sonlite label. "When I first heard The Old Paths, I knew immediately that these guys were not just another quartet," White says. "It's a rarity these days to discover an artist who you believe possesses all the main ingredients to succeed quickly. Now with two Number One songs to their credit in less than a year, they have drawn the attention they deserve. I trust and believe that their talents will be relevant in our business, for years to come and, I'm glad the Harper Agency will be a part of this process."
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, The Old Paths is actually paving a new path into national prominence with numerous hit songs, as well as national award nominations. Most recently, the group received five nominations when the 2013 Singing News Fan Awards' Top 5 nominations were announced, including New Traditional Quartet. The group also received seven nominations for the 2013 NQC Music Awards, including Favorite Male Group.
The Harper Agency is pleased to add The Old Paths to their roster of fine artists, which also includes numerous other notable quartets. "My dad, who founded The Harper Agency in 1986, was a member of The Oak Ridge Boys for 12 years," Ed Harper, President of The Harper Agency, states. "As a result of Dad's love for four-part harmony, our agency has a rich tradition of representing quality quartets. The Old Paths help us continue that tradition. They have been around for quite a while, but they have recently begun to make a real impact in so many areas. They have received major endorsements from such prominent pastors as Dr. Jerry Vines and Dr. Charles Stanley, which is a great testament to their desire for ministry, as well as their exceptional talent. We are honored to have the opportunity to work with and represent such an outstanding group of young men. We look forward to being a part of their future for many years."
For The Old Paths, joining The Harper Agency is just one more step in the right direction for this talented quartet. "We are honored and humbled by the recent success of our ministry, and all the glory is given to the Lord, Jesus Christ," The Old Paths' baritone, Douglas Roark shares. "We are thankful for the support of our families, friends, fans and diligence of the Crossroads Music team. Along with that success there's been a greater demand for scheduling. We're delighted to announce an agreement with the renowned Harper Agency! With their shared interest in keeping the Gospel of Christ at the forefront, we have every confidence that we can better focus on the day to day task of the ministry and allow more time with our families when we're home. We are so looking forward to what we believe God has in store."
