Eddie Crook


Eddie Crook's career in gospel music began when he joined the Tennesseans Quartet in 1961. He later worked with Jimmie Davis, the Plainsmen, the Sego Brothers And Naomi, the Happy Goodmans, and the Southmen Quartet.

Crook is noted for his years as a record producer and label owner. He formed the Eddie Crook Company in 1977. A number of today's top Southern Gospel artists including the Bishops, the McKameys, the Wilburns, and the Perrys got their start with MorningStar Records or one of Crook's other labels.

Eddie also played piano for Vocal Edition in the late 1990s. He returned to the concert stage in 2008 when he joined the revived Prophets to play piano.
