While we were at NQC this year I had the pleasure of interviewing Tim Rackley of the Old Paths! First let me tell you a little bit about the Old Paths.
With loads of enthusiasm and ministry experience, the Old Paths Quartet materialized out of Atlanta, Georgia to become one of the most influential, trend setting Christian groups in Southern Gospel.
Ten years ago, a group of men chose a name from the following verse and made a commitment to stay true to its words: Jeremiah 6:16 KJV – “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for The Old Paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls……..”
“Our vision has always been for the world to see the good way, through our ministry. Yet as we traveled, we could not foresee HIS hand on us as our music spread across the country and overseas, nor did we realize the impact this ministry would have as it reached across the globe.”

Even with a major recording and booking agent contract, four #1 songs, six top 40 songs of the year, several top 10 hits, a magazine cover, winner the 2013 Singing News Fan Awards New Quartet of the Year, numerous coveted stage appearances, and various international concert performances, The Old Paths’ vision has not changed. We have not compromised or sold out. Though we have journeyed down the Old Path for a decade now, our voyage has only just begun."
And now for the interview.
Tim, thank you so much for doing this! It was a lot of fun. Readers, I hope you enjoyed. If you'd like to see if the Old Paths are ever around you go check out their website. You can also keep up with them on Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks so much for reading.
