It was the spring of 1966, in St. Albans, West Virginia, when five men joined together to share a common love of southern style gospel music. As the quartet and piano player met in local churches and a refrigeration school, the Lordsmen was born. They exhibited and urgency to share Christ through four-part, southern gospel music. God blessed the group as they began accepting bookings throughout the state of West Virginia. Today, The Lordsmen call Elkview, located just north of Charleston, West Virginia, home. The group continues to travel throughout the eastern United States. Group members hold full-time jobs through the week and participate in fairs, festivals, reunions, celebrations, homecomings, revivals and many other events on weekends. In over 55 years of ministry, the message of Christ remains unchanged as has the urgency to share this powerful message through music. This urgency has allowed the Lordsmen to cross the boundaries of nearly every church denomination.   Current members include Lead - Tony Petry, Alto - Debbie Petry, Baritone -Craig Petry, and Piano Player Glenn Naylor.

With God`s sovereign leadership and the dedication of members through history, the Lordsmen proudly proclaim....."

Southern Gospel Since `66".
