From a small town called Sylvester, Georgia, in the southwest corner of the state, they travel all over the country taking the good news of the Gospel in song to everyone. Formed in 1999, this year marks their 24th anniversary. Ricky started singing with his family as a young man, and continued throughout his teen years. In 1988, he started singing with his first group, The Campmeeting Boys. In 1991, he formed a male trio called Kindred Spirit and in 1994 he began filling solo dates, which he did for two years. In 1996 he joined The Wilburns from Nashville, Tennessee, and in 1999 he returned to South Georgia to form this group. He is most noted for being one of Gospel music's top songwriters and is also a producer, arranger, publisher and President of Resting Place Music Group. Ricky sings lead and is the group owner and manager. Some of his most recognized songs are: The Valley is for Me, Resting Place, Left Behind, Blessed Be the Name of the Lord, Good Time Today and many more. He has appeared on Gospel Music Television, Dollywood, Silver Dollar City, Celebration Cruises and at many other venues. We hope to see you there!
