Hovie Lister And The Statesmen Quartet have always been - no matter which combination of personnel - a powerful team that southern gospel music lovers cannot forget. Brought to life in the late '40s, the Statesmen and their songs have lived on long after many of the singers have gone on to be with the one they sang about. The mixture of unforgettable showmanship, tight vocal harmonies, and heart within each of the men who took the stage will always be remembered.In this one-of-a-kind documentary Bill Gaither combines rare, historical concert footage and songs which bring back favorites loved by so many. Among the special features of this video are the interviews with Hovie Lister, Jake Hess, Rosie Rozell, Jack Toney and many others who talk about the southern gospel quartets of yesterday and today.
