Doug was saved at the age of 10 and started singing for the Lord that same year. He and his wife, Amy, met at church and were married in 1988. They have been blessed with seven children, Doug, Andy, Anna, Dora, Amelia Grace, Amanda Joy and Della Rose.
Doug became the new owner of The Peach State Quartet in 2009 when the previous owner, Tom Cabaniss, went home to be with the Lord. Doug considers it an honor and a privilege to carry on the legacy and ministry of the group. His favorite scripture verse is Hebrews 12:2.
