The Triumphant Quartet
The Great Smoky Mountains is the place where you will find one of the greatest Southern Gospel Quartets in all of Gospel music. Triumphant Quartet (formerly Integrity Quartet) formed in January 2003 with the purpose of spreading the good news of Christ through song. David Sutton, Clayton Inman, Scott Inman, Eric Bennett, and pianist Jeff Stice form the acclaimed southern gospel group. Their mission is to see lost souls come to know Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, and encourage believers with Christian entertainment. "Christ is the reason we sing,” proclaims the members of The Triumphant Quartet.
The Triumphant Quartet offers an amazing show of talented vocals and unmoving faith. Every year, the quartet and its individual members have been nominated for awards.
In 2004, their single “I Bring You Forgiveness” was nominated for Top 10 song of the year by Singing News Fan Awards. In 2005, their CD HomeFree was nominated as a Top 10 Album of the Year.
In 2006, their song “Don’t Let the Sandals Fool Ya” was #1 on the U.S. Gospel News Top 80 Chart and #6 on the Singing News Top 80 Chart. This song was also #15 on the 2006 Southern Gospel Music’s Song of the Year list. Their self-titled CD Triumphant was nominated as Top 5 Album of the Year by Singing News fans.
In 2007, the quartet received nine Top 5 nominations for Singing News magazine’s prestigious Fan Awards: Group of the Year, Favorite Album, Favorite Song, and individual nominations for all five members of the group. Scott Inman, baritone, was selected as the Young Artist of the Year.
In 2007, Jeff Stice was voted the Stage Musician of the Year by the Southern Gospel Music Guild. He received the Harmony Award. This honor was voted by his peers. And things did not stop there. In 2007 they were honored to receive the Christian Music Presenters (CMP) Artist Endorsement, a designation based on “the values of musical excellence, ministry readiness, and spiritual integrity.” They were also awarded certification as American Gospel Music (AGM) Artists, the highest accreditation possible in gospel music. An invitation to perform in a celebration of American Gospel Music at Carnegie Hall in New York City rounded out this enormously successful year. The quartet shared the stage with other prominent gospel music artists, a 200-voice choir, and the American Festival Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Eric Dale Knapp.
In 2008 Jeff Stice was presented 2008 Musician of the Year by The Singing News magazine. It was the same year they decided to take their ministry on the road full-time giving them the opportunity of performing in more concert venues and churches.
With all of the accolades and success, the men of The Triumphant Quartet keep their work in perspective - to keep God first in everything they do.
