They're a new kind of Christian / gospel group - thoughtful, multi-talented and confident. With their debut radio single ‘Come Too Far’ running up the charts, The New Golden Crowns Of Louisville Kentucky is in a unique position to re-define the genre.

Generally speaking, Christian / gospel artists are highly dependent on strong lyrics and pure musicianship to succeed in the market, and The New Golden Crowns Of Louisville Kentucky is well-positioned to excel in this regard. Perhaps that's why critics had this to say about the group's award-winning work: ‘This lively Christian song would be considered ingenious by the standard of any genre - 'Come Too Far' has a bouncing energy that channels a divine joy lurking in us all.’ Now that their new radio single ‘Come Too Far’ is catching fire on radio, it's clear that we'll be hearing a lot more of them. Reporter Lauren Scott recently caught up with The New Golden Crowns Of Louisville Kentucky to learn more about this intriguing new group and what inspires them to create their music.


LAUREN: Let's just get this out in the open- What is the craziest thing that has happened to you in your music career?
THE NEW GOLDEN CROWNS OF LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY: Nothing Really crazy. We just celebrated the groups 

79th year of singing.

LAUREN: Your song ‘Come Too Far’ is receiving a positive listener response on radio. What was your initial reaction when you first heard your song playing on radio?
THE NEW GOLDEN CROWNS OF LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY: It's just like going to the candy store for the first time. You just smile and say this can't be what you that it would be.

LAUREN: What was the inspiration behind your radio single?
THE NEW GOLDEN CROWNS OF LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY: The past three years has been so hard. We lost three members to death. My second oldest son got killed in a car accident and my other son said daddy we come too far to turn around now. So we are keeping the name and group on.

LAUREN: It is often said that great art arises from difficult experience. Is there something in your life experience thus far that you would describe as the ‘catalyst’ or ‘fuel’ for your desire to create music?
THE NEW GOLDEN CROWNS OF LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY: We just love to inspire the people with the songs we sing. We just what people to get closer to Christ.

LAUREN: How would you characterize yourself as an artist/musician?
THE NEW GOLDEN CROWNS OF LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY: We really don't. We just love what we do.


“Come Too Far”
New Golden Crowns of Louisville, KY
Sharp Records (release 
Available from

By Bob Marovich

Organized in 1940 as the Golden Crowns, an a cappella quartet, the New Golden Crowns of Louisville, Kentucky, are comprised of a mixture of new members and a couple of veterans, notably lead singer Reverend Nathaniel Brown (50+ years) and guitar player Reverend Bobby Johnson (30+ years).

“Come Too Far” is a drive-tempo hand clapper that riffs on the church catchphrase, “I’ve come too far, I can’t turn around,” as immortalized in the Alex Bradford classic “Too Close to Heaven.” The instrumentation is just right, the backbeat is solid, and the song is sung hard with that country-fried southern soul that defines today’s quartet sound.
