Alan’s roots are deep in the panhandle of Texas where he was born and raised, a graduate of Texas Tech University, and fulfilled a professional career in the financial services industry.
His love for gospel music began in 1980 with the startup of a local quartet, The Conchords, in Amarillo, Texas. He has performed with various other local quartets and quintets for the past thirty-three years. “Gospel music has been the centerpiece in my life and the anchor of my faith in Christ,” he says. “I firmly believe the touch of the Saviour can be delivered through music!”
Alan and his wife, Cathi, married in 1984 and have lived in the Branson, Missouri area since the move from Texas in 2011. They have three wonderful daughters, Michelle, Jennifer, and Chelsi—all married with families of their own—and six awesome grandchildren.

Ken Turner Baritone
Ken's love for Southern Gospel Music was fostered throughout his childhood years. Mostly in his Grandfather’s Country Church near Siloam Springs, AR. He can remember singing the old hymns like "Camping in Canaan’s Land”, "Do Lord" and "I'll Fly Away". (Grandpa would Preach & Grandma would play the piano). God placed a burning desire in his heart to sing and minister through the message of the old songs.
His singing career started in 1970 with "The Tulsa Boy Singers". From this point, he began singing in Church as well as traveling and performing with the Tulsa Boy Singers in various venues, such as the Oklahoma State Capitol, Cathedrals, & Concert Halls.
He's been blessed beyond measure singing and ministering over the years. He has also served as a Worship leader in various churches throughout his music career.
Ken's favorite verse can be found in Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn unto the Lord, and He will have mercy on them, and to our God, for He will freely pardon.
