The Anchormen (1979-Present)

The North Carolina-based Anchormen formed in 1979. A year or so later, another group based in Claremont, North Carolina also started using the Anchormen name. That group ultimately changed its name to Tarheel State Quartet.

Baritone singer Terry Carter was with the group at the beginning. He took a 13-year break from 1997-2010 when he returned for an additional seven years.

Often described as a farm group, the Anchormen have provided national exposure for many young singers who are now well-known fixtures in Southern Gospel.
