Tim Surrett


Tim Surrett sang baritone for the Carolinians Quartet in the 1980s. He then sang with Squire Parsons And Redeemed from 1987-1988.

Surrett was in the Kingsmen Quartet band and sang both lead and baritone from 1989-1996. During this period, Surrett is perhaps best remembered for his performance on the song "Wish You Were Here" which held the number one spot on the Singing News Top 80 airplay chart for four months in 1992 (May-August).

After leaving the Kingsmen and while married to Sonya Isaacs, Surrett sang and played dobro as a member of the Isaacs (1997-2002). After they divorced, Surrett reunited with former Kingsmen Quartet members in 2002 who at the time were billed as the Carolina Boys. Surrett remained with the group singing lead and baritone during their transition back to using the Kingsmen Quartet name in 2004. He left the group the following year.

In 2007, Surrett and four friends from his native Haywood County, North Carolina formed a bluegrass group called Balsam Range. While not exclusively gospel, they did release a compilation album in 2019 titled The Gospel Collection that featured gospel songs the group had recorded in the past.

Surrett has numerous credits as a record producer and session musician. He also worked as a radio DJ on a popular show called ''Papertown Roots" on WPTL radio (Canton, North Carolina).
