History

Freedom Quartet

Freedom Trio was formed in 2010 by lead singer Josh Garner (Florida Boys) and tenor singer John Rulapaugh (Dove Brothers/Palmetto State Quartet). Baritone Joel Trimble (Soulíd Out Quartet) was also an original member. Trimble was replaced by Alan Kendall (Melody Boys Quartet) in 2011, who yielded the baritone position to vocalist and pianist Tyler Vestal in 2012.

The trio disbanded in 2013 when Garner joined the Dixie Melody Boys and Vestal made his way to Beyond The Ashes. John Rulapaugh then launched Freedom Quartet with lead singer Dale Shipley (Perfect Heart), baritone Preston Garner, and bass Burman Porter (Dove Brothers/Palmetto State Quartet). They debuted as a quartet at the 2013 National Quartet Convention. Baritone Preston Garner was replaced by Scott Mullins in 2016. In 2017, Nathan Parrish joined to play piano and sing tenor on dates where John Rulapaugh did not appear, but shortly after that, Mullins left to join the Anchormen and Porter joined Jordan's Bridge.
