At one time, the Crusaders Quartette were entertaining their audiences over WCPM in Middlesboro, Kentucky. This was during a time when it was said that quartette singing was very popular in the South and Southwest parts of the United States.

An article indicates that the group specliated in 'Stamps Baxter Gospel' singing, but would also do "...good Western barbershop or ballad number(s)."
