About the Statlers: Harold, Phil, Jimmy and DonFrom the Official Web Site of The Statler BrothersThe Most Awarded Act in the History of Country Music
The Statlers Brothers, Harold Reid, Phil Balsley, Jimmy Fortune and Don Reid, were the premier group in country music for nearly forty years. Entering the business in 1964 as the backup voices for Johnny Cash on stage, record and TV, they served their apprenticeship with him for 8 1/2 years. During that time they recorded their first hit record, “Flowers on the Wall”, and were regulars on the weekly Johnny Cash Show on ABC TV.
Leaving the Cash troupe in 1972, they continued with such hit records as “Bed of Rose’s”, “Class of ’57″ and “I’ll Go to My Grave Loving You”. Their original harmonies, sense of humor and lyrical style of writing highlighted a career that led them to the top of the music charts countless times and to a concert touring success that packed arenas and theaters with every performance. Their award winning (Grammies, CMA’s, Gold and Platinum records and etc) is legendary and they are considered to be the most honored of any act in the country music field.
The 90s saw them starring in their own television series, The Statler Brothers Show, on TNN, The Nashville Network for seven years and remaining the number one show on the network its entire run. Deciding to retire from a lifetime of traveling and enjoy the good life in their homes in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, they gave their farewell concert in the fall of 2002.

'Love Lifted Me' Classic Performance From The Statler Brothers - Christian Music Videos
The talented men of The Statler Brothers lead us in worship with this classic performance of ‘Love Lifted Me.’ This beloved hymn reminds us all that God’s love can see us through any hardship. “Love lifted me Love lifted me When nothing else would do You know love lifted me” The Statler Brothers formed in 1955 and continued to play music until their retirement in 2002. Throughout the years, these talented men have gives us hits such as ‘Flowers On The Wall’ and ‘Do You Know You Are My Sunshine?’ Today, we are taking a look back at one of their incredible gospel performances of the classic hymn ‘Love Lifted Me.’ As they belt out these lyrics, we remember that God is the way, the truth and the light. “Everybody is looking for a way To say something nobody's saying But that's hard to do They're searching their mind Trying to find one of a kind way That they could find something new So I'll just sing” In troubling times, it is always important to hold fast to your faith and let God lead the way. And this hymn is the perfect way to sing His praises. Ephesians 3:17-19 “So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
