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.

'A Place On Calvary' The Statler Brothers Classic Performance - Christian Music Videos
Rejoice in the Name of the Lord as The Statler Brothers perform ‘A Place On Calvary.’ These lyrics are a wonderful reminder that God is the source of our strength and our salvation.
“Lower my body and lift my Soul
And tell me to come on home
Let me leave this world of Sin
'Cause heaven is where I want to roam”
The Statler Brothers formed in 1955 and continued to play music until their retirement in 2002. Throughout the years, these talented men have given us hits such as ‘Flowers On The Wall’ and ‘Do You Know You Are My Sunshine?’
Today, they’re belting out the lyrics to the classic worship song, ‘A Place On Calvary.’ Just listen as they sing to the Lord with all their heart.
“I'll bow my head, raise my hands
Get down on my knees
I just beg and pray that I someday
Will have a place on Calvary”
This beautiful performance is the perfect dose of nostalgia. On YouTube, one viewer said, “We’re going to leave this old evil world of sin, & spend Eternity with our Lord & Savior; Jesus Christ!! Oh, What a day that’s going to be!!”
Another person wrote, “Give me that old time religion ❤️”
Let us use these lyrics to give thanks to His Name. Who else is saying amen right now?
Romans 10:9 “That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.”
