“For the past eight years I have had the great opportunity to travel and sing with the guys of Soul'd Out Quartet (SOQT). These men are high character individuals and it has been a pleasure to sing along side them. God has blessed SOQT and I am very thankful for the many friends I have made and the opportunities God has given through the ministry of SOQT.
With that said, after much prayer, thought and consultation with my wife, I have decided to resign my position with SOQT and join the Legacy Five team.
It is an honor and a privilege to join L5. These men have a wonderful calling on their lives and do a fantastic job. They are men of integrity and I couldn't be happier to join their ranks. I'm excited to see where God leads and what He does in this new season of my life.
My family and I are thankful for your prayers and support, and I ask that you keep SOQT and L5 in your prayers as He leads both groups in the calling He has placed on their lives. God bless!”
Soul’d Out Quartet’s Matt Rankin says, “Soul'd Out Quartet wishes to thank Matt Fouch for 8 years of service to the Lord and the group. We have been a part of seeing many come to Christ in those years. We have been a part of watching God's hand at work and have watched him supply the group's needs time and time again. We hate to see Matt leave Soul'd Out but we trust that God is leading this decision. We will be in prayer for a replacement and will continue our prayers and support for Matt Fouch, his family, and Legacy 5. Though change is many times difficult, the big picture is that we all are trying to serve the King. With that said, thank you Matt for making Soul'd Out a better group while you were here. We love you. God bless.
Legacy Five’s Scott Fowler comments, “Seasons of life change for us all. Change is never easy but it is inevitable. The older I get, the less I like change, but with change comes the excitement of seeing what new and refreshing doors God opens for us. We are really looking forward to Matt’s contribution to Legacy Five, both on and off the stage. To Matt, Dusty, Michael and Bryan of Soul’d Out, I want to say how much I have appreciated how gracious and kind they have been to Legacy Five and Matt during this time of transition. I cannot remember when two groups have had this type of cooperation in a situation like this. They are truly good men and I have great respect for them”
Matt Fouch will officially join Legacy Five on September 1.
Glenn Dustin Departs Legacy Five
We are sad to announce Glenn Dustin's departure from Legacy Five. Glenn was an original member of our group. His magnetic personality and stellar bass voice, has endeared him to audiences across the United States, and in other countries, over the past twelve years.
Here is a personal statement from Glenn:
Dear Legacy Five Family,
If you know me at all, you know I am a man of few words, so I'll be brief.
It is with much regret that I am announcing my resignation. Effective immediately, I will no longer be traveling and singing with Legacy Five. I have had the time of my life, traveling the highways with L5, getting to meet so many wonderful people. However, nothing lasts forever. I have been honored to see so many things that I would have never had the opportunity to, apart from L5. I have so many wonderful memories, and I will miss so many people.
Please keep me and my family in your thoughts and prayers, and continue to pray for and encourage L5. I will miss those men, and I doubt there will be a day that passes where I don't think of them. I have so many wonderful memories.
In His Grip,
Glenn "Cuz" Dustin
We have already begun the process of searching for a new Bass Singer. We would appreciate your prayerful support, as we trust the Lord to bring us the person He has already chosen to complete our group . Please keep Glenn and his family in your prayers as they begin this new chapter in their lives.
Legacy Five Debuts Anticipated “Ask Me Why” to YouTube
Nashville, TN - After weeks of waiting, fans finally get the chance to see the official music video release of Legacy Five’s “Ask Me Why.” It is based on the true story of a woman named Patty and her daughter Hanah who came to know the Lord after accidentally showing up at a Legacy Five concert.
The video is already gaining buzz on YouTube with exponential growth in hits, comments, and shares on Facebook. L5 celebrates the release along with cover stories in both Singing News Magazine and SGN Scoops this month.
Patty Davenport Bahhur is actually featured in the video as a woman going through hardship and finding grace. Scott Fowler, lead singer, tells the story of how Patty stumbled upon the Celebration Event at the Grand Ole Opry with her daughter and looked to the group for answers. When she was given the wrong tickets to an event she thought would be the Opry show, she noticed something strikingly different about the concert. The people looked happy.
“She went on to tell me that her husband is a Muslim and that she was not accustomed to being around so many people who seemed so happy. She again said to me, ‘So you see...we're not supposed to be here. We are here by accident. This is not the Grand Ole Opry show and I don't understand why everyone around here is so happy. What is this music all about?’” Said Fowler, recalling Patty’s story, “It was then I realized that this was a divine appointment, and God was giving me an incredible opportunity to tell this lady and her daughter why we were all so ‘happy.’”
The video takes place at the Franklin Historic Presbyterian Church featuring a congregation comprised of L5 fans who volunteered to be extras. “Ask Me Why” was penned by Kenna Turner West, who made an appearance at the filming along with Jim Brady of The Booth Brothers and Les Butler of Singing News.
We are getting lots of inquiries asking when our first ever concept video "Ask ME Why" will be available to view.
The goal of the production company, Scott Godsey and Associates is to have it finished up by April 15....TAX DAY!
Be sure and watch your email for an announcement as soon as it is ready to watch.

Trey Ivey to join Legacy Five
Legacy Five is pleased to announce that 21 year old Trey Ivey will be
joining Legacy Five as their new pianist. Trey is from Cleveland, Georgia
but will soon make Nashville, Tennessee his new home.
Trey played the piano for The Mike Lefevre Quartet from November 2006
until March 2010 and most recently was the pianist for The Old Paths. Scott
Fowler of Legacy Five states, "I first heard Trey a couple of years ago at
the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. I remember
thinking then that this young man was a great player and I made a mental
note to myself to keep an eye on him. When Tim Parton announced he would be
leaving, I contacted Trey and arranged for an audition...the rest as they
say, is history. All of the Legacy Five guys are excited to have Trey a
part of our team."
Trey states, "I am so thankful that God allows me to do what I love to do.
I am very excited about joining Legacy Five and look forward to seeing what
the future holds. It is a real honor to follow in the footsteps of two of my

Bailey Born Again!
Well, when I got off the bus Sunday around 11:30 AM, My wife and two boys met me at the front door. Taryn said, “Bailey…you wanna tell Daddy what happened today at Church?” Bailey looked up into my eyes and as they became moist with sweet little baby tears, he said, “I am a Christian….I asked Jesus into my heart today.” Man….I fell hard to my knees and grabbed him and hugged him and bragged on him….and almost suffocated him. All day he kept mentioning that he was a “good Christian”. I asked him why he was so happy today, to which he replied “because I’m a Christian.” So…we all rejoiced with the angels in Heaven. Sunday we had his spiritual party and tonight (Wednesday) we had Bailey’s 5 physical birthday party. It’s been a good week for celebrations in the Fowler’s home.
Monday morning, Bailey had an appointment with his pediatrician. After she examined him she asked him “So what the best thing you did all summer? Bailey replied, “I became a Christian!” Oh the newborn Feeling! The zeal…the tender heart…the kind words. It’s a marvelous thing to watch and experience. Phase one of our parenthood is done. Phase two begins now.
I think each phase gets more challenging and I know God prepares the parents and the children alike. Lord….let us learn. Help us not to mess up what you are trying to do in and thru us with regard to our children.
Please pray for the Fowler's, Parton’s, Dustin’s, Gaches’ and the Howard’s, that God will equip us to be the parents we need to be to our precious children who are loaned to us by the Creator of all.
Must see video - Freedom Singers
These three young men, Simon, Wesley and Steven fled Romania when they were only teenagers, in search of religious freedom. Simon and Wesley were locked and sealed in a container and placed aboard a container vessel where they spent two weeks in total darkness as they journeyed to a destination unknown. They ran out of food, water, air and hope. Just when despair filled that container and death was all but certain, God provided another of many miracles in this incredible real life story of faith and perseverance.

Franklin, TN Artist Paints Water Color of Preston Fowler…
Some time ago, I met a local (Franklin, Tennessee) artist named Randy Elrod. Randy Elrod is described by his friends as a Renaissance man. A dreamer,
artist, writer, speaker and mentor. I’m not sure what all that means, but I
do know this: the dude is a gifted artist. Last week, Randy presented me
with a fabulous watercolor of my son Preston looking at the American Flag.
His painting was inspired by a photo I took of Preston four years ago when
he was helping display a flag on the side of our house. Randy has named his
latest piece of art “American Son” and I wanted you all to see it.
I love it for so many reasons. Number one, it is one of my favorite
pictures I have ever taken of Preston. I just love the way his eyes are
looking at that flag. That was no doubt one of those quick expressions that
was gone in less than a second. But that flag had his attention for a
beautiful moment in time. Notice the reflection of the flag in Preston’s
But I love it for another reason. It serves as a constant reminder that
Preston and his brother Bailey were born in America where they are free.
Free to pursue happiness. Free to dream. Free to roam from sea to shining
sea. Free to worship. FREE. I love America and I thank God that he has
blessed this land.
My father-law, Ken Davis sums the flag up this way:
If we forget the price of freedom we will loose it.
If we forget our history we will forfeit our future.
The flag reminds us of the history and cost of the freedoms we enjoy today.
We must be sure that this young generation can still SEE the significance of
the flag and know its rich history. That knowledge will help guarantee that
long after we are gone, old glory will still have a land of the free and
home of the brave over which it can wave.
Oh, say can you see?
