Blackwood Quartet (1998-Present) (Also see Blackwood Gospel Quartet, Blackwood Singers, and Ron Blackwood Quartet)


The Blackwood Quartet was started by brothers Ron Blackwood and R W Blackwood Jr. The four-part male quartet typically sang several songs as part of a larger group called the Blackwood Singers that included the wives of Ron and R W Jr. and performed theater shows in Branson, Missouri and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

In later years, Ron left the theater and carried on the Blackwood Quartet name with other singers. In 2010, the quartet was merged with Mark Blackwood's Blackwood Gospel Quartet. In 2011, the group added bass singer Terry Toney at the same time that Toney retired his own group name, the Toney Brothers.
