Among the most talented and charming all girl gospel singing groups in the Northwest are Gloria, Carolyn and Cathaleen, who are known as the "Country Crugers."  Wherever they appear at church gatherings, people are always impressed by this trio's pure "country" style, - yet precise harmony and original arrangements.  It is little wonder they blend so nicely however, as they have been singing together since they were old enough to carry a tune.

Their musical careers and personal lives of dedication to the Lord have been under the steady and talented direction of their mother, Virginia, who accompanies the girls on the piano.

They have appeared repeatedly in Conventions, Youth for Christ Rallies, Camp Meetings and local churches in the State of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and as far as Springfield, Missouri, also on Radio and Television.

Gloria, who is 21, is a working girl in an accounting office.  Along with her singing talent, taking the tenor part, she plays the piano and accordian.

Carolyn, 19, the "Tom Boy" is a sophomore in college.  Besides playing the bass fiddle with the group, her outside home chores of chopping wood, milking the cow, and helping to build the family house keeps her busy.
Cathaleen, 17, a senior at East Valley High School does most of the lead and solo worl.  She plays the piano for the school choir.

This inspiring collection of old and new songs of faith is the second album by the Country Crugers.  If you like good country gospek singing, we're sure you will enjoy many hours of pleasurable listening herein.
