Monument Quartet (2005-2008)
Monument Quartet formed in 2005 after the retirement of the Wilburns. Former Wilburns members Gary Casto (lead) and Josh Singletary (baritone) joined forces with Marshall Pugh (tenor) and Dennis Dugger (bass) to launch the new venture. They released a self-titled debut CD that same year.
It proved to be a short-lived partnership. The following year, Casto, Singletary, and Dugger departed to form Tribute Quartet in the early fall of 2006. By November of 2006, Pugh had assembled a new lineup consisting of Matt Felts (tenor), John Tidwell (lead), Brad Smith (bass), and Lucas Case (piano). Pugh shifted from tenor to baritone.
In 2007, Pugh announced the group would be shifting its focus to fairs and festivals with a goal of filling the void left by groups like the Statler Brothers and Oak Ridge Boys who performed a mixture of gospel and secular country music. After another year or so and a few more membership changes, the group disbanded.
