By the age of four, Eldon`s love of Gospel Music was evident. He had already learned some of the basic rudiments of music and was a guest on the McDonald Brothers Quartet radio program which only made his desire to sing more prevalent. Ten years later, after studying under many of the greatest teachers in Gospel Music, including Luther G. Presley (who wrote more songs than any person in history), he began teaching old fashioned singing schools. Then in early 1964 he expanded his music into the quartet field. From 1964 to the present Eldon has sung with many quartets and trios traveling all over America, recorded 26 different sessions, and appeared on numerous radio and television programs. In 2004 he, along with his long time friend, Tommy Fairchild, (original pianist and lead singer of the Oak Ridge Boys) founded the American Heritage Music Foundation. Eldon`s primary singing these days are as a soloist which is the old fashioned type he has been known for all these years. His first solo release "The Lighthouse Still Stands" is a message which needs to be remembered in these troubling times.
