The Blackwood Brothers Quartet was formed in 1934 with brothers Roy, Doyle, James and Roy’s son, R.W. In the late 50’s Roy and Doyle retired from traveling and in 1954 R.W. was killed in a tragic airplane crash. However, the quartet with James as the quartet’s leader and spokesman established a new group of singers who would go on to take Gospel music to new heights as they traveled and sang in all fifty of the United States, every Canadian province as well as cities in Great Britain, Europe, the Middle East, Northern Africa, South Africa, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, Hong King and the Philippines.
In 2002 James Blackwood went to be with the Lord but his sons, Jimmy (James Jr.) and Billy have continued the 80+year tradition. Recently Jimmy retired after singing for 49 years and his younger brother, Billy, now carries on the quartet which has the distinction of being the best-known name in Gospel Music history!
