The Crestmen are a Southern Gospel Quartet from the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. For over 35 years, The Crestmen have traveled across the nation spreading the love of Jesus Christ in song with “classic” southern gospel harmony. To give you a glimpse of our history, we have had such greats as Tim Lovelace (Gaither Videos) and Ernie Phillips. Tim actually got his start with The Crestmen and Ernie sang with the Crestmen for nine years. Ernie was named top tenor in the nation, three years in a row while with The Kingsmen. Both have gone on to other ministries.
The Crestmen completed TV recordings with Country Super Star "Janie Fricke" on Virginia Dreams Center Stage, and “Collin Raye” which will be aired on National RFD-TV, on WHSV- TV3 and The Valley. The Crestmen appear as guests on Virginia Dreams Center Stage. Watch for Virginia Dreams Center Stage on RFD-TV (Dish Network 231 and Direct TV 345) Saturdays at 5:30pm and Thursdays at 6:30pm.
