The Marksmen

Enjoy an evening of bluegrass gospel with The Marksmen.

Over a period of thirty years, The Marksmen have become one of the top Bluegrass Gospel Groups in the nation. For many years they have been a dynamic force on the southern gospel circuit. Several years back, The Marksmen began to tread new ground on the bluegrass circuit as well, but always with their familiar brand of music, with a gospel message.

In 1991, The Marksmen won video of the year for their production of “Grandpa Was a Farmer”, at the Independent Country Awards. Then in 1992 they received a Telly Award with their video of “Wagon Tracks.” In 1993, ’94, and ’95 at the National Bluegrass Awards The Marksmen won SPBGMA’s award for the best Bluegrass/Gospel Group of the year.

Recently The Marksmen had a #1 song “Love Letters In The Sand” in the Christian Voice Country Gospel Charts, written by Willard Thomas and Mark Wheeler and also charted another number one song in the Singing News Bluegrass Gospel Chart “Sound the Battle Cry”. Over the last few years The Marksmen have had several top 20 country gospel songs. The Marksmen have also been inducted into the Lone Star State (Texas) Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
