History

The Heartland Quartet was formed on Easter Sunday in 1992 with group members including Roy Tremble (Tenor), Chuck Crain (Lead), George Amon Webster (Baritone/Piano), and Brent Fredricks (Bass). Larry Thompson was a 5th partner. Thompson owned a coal truck company in Pikeville, KY. Tremble, Crain, Webster and Fredricks had been members of the Ron Blackwood Quartet in Branson, MO before they left and formed Heartland Quartet. Roy and George were also former members of The Cathedral Quartet.

In July 1993, Crain was replaced by Bryan Hutson, who had filled in for Crain previously when they were still with Blackwood's group. Rory Rigdon was hired as bass player and sound technician in August 1993. Around Christmas 1993, Webster left the group to sing in Florida with his son Tim and brother Dannie. Rigdon filled the baritone position until a baritone was hired.

Tremble left the group in March 1994. At that point, the group began to be billed as "The Heartland Boys" with Tim Webster at tenor, Bryan Hutson singing lead, Dannie Webster filling the role of utility baritone, George Amon Webster returning as baritone and pianist, and Brent Fredricks singing bass. Dannie Webster left after a year. Along with these changes, Rigdon moved on to the Kingsmen as a bus driver/sound technician and Larry Thompson withdrew his involvement with the group.

Eldridge Fox (owner of The Kingsmen Quartet) produced the groups recordings. When Tim Surrett left the Kingsmen in 1996, Bryan Hutson left the Heartland Boys to sing lead for them. Jonathon Farley was hired to replace Hutson. From 1998-2004, Tim Webster came and went a couple times, Fredricks ultimately left. Jeremy Wilkerson, Deo Young and Jimmy McMillian also sang with the group. Deo Young (bass singer) eventually became the owner of the group. At that point, George Amon Webster left and formed the George Amon Webster Trio with two former members of the Heartland Boys, Jackie Lamb (tenor) and Todd Myers (lead).
