In 1982, a new quartet was formed in Brookhaven, MS, called Gloryland Quartet. The quartet's mission was to share the good news of Jesus Christ in song to audiences all over the South East region.
Its founding members were Carlton Brown, Marvin Stegall, Elmo Rushing and Charles (Chuck) Rushing. The four were the best of the best.
After many miles and many personnel changes, Gloryland found its way to family harmony. Father Charles Rushing, Daughter Stephanie Reynaud and Stephanie's Children Reese and Maggie Rose.
In 2017, the quartet suffered one of the most devastating loses. Founding Member, Father and Grandfather, Charles Rushing went home to be with the Lord just a few weeks before he was to be honored with the Mississippi Quartet Convention's most prestigious accolade "Life Time Achievement" Award.
Stephanie and her children accepted the award on Charles' behalf and a new vision and will to serve was birthed. Their family legacy would continue, but this time as a trio.
The current line up is made us of Stephanie and her very talented children. Maggie Rose Reynaud sings the alto part, while her brother Reese Reynaud sings the harmonies all while one proud mother watches and sings the lead.
Reese also handles the bookings for Gloryland, while Stephanie handles most of the social media for the trio. Maggie is still busy with her school work.
Gloryland, as they are now, just finished their debut album, landing a record contract with Redemption World Records in Nashville, TN produced by Grammy nominated Jonathan Goodwin.
The album is slated to be released in the summer of 2018, just before the Mississippi Quartet Convention. The album is called, "Fly".
This is a fitting title for the once beloved Quartet, now turned trio. They are soaring to new heights and landing themselves in the hearts of new audiences all over the Southeast.
Make Plans to come see Gloryland soon!
