The Chuck Wagon Gang is a gospel music group who's been performing for more than 80 years and is currently based in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Eighty years in any business is a long time, particularly in a musical group of any genre. The Chuck Wagon Gang holds the distinction of being the oldest recording mixed gospel group still performing with ties to the original founding members. By trade, the Carters were farmers, who migrated from place to place to pick cotton. The singing group came from humble beginnings in 1935, as the Carters found themselves in Lubbock, Texas, without enough money to buy medicine for a sick child, Effie. Dave Carter and two of his children, Lola and Ernest of his Carter Quartet (no relation to the Carter Family of Bristol, VA) arrived at radio station KFYO in Lubbock seeking live singing employment on radio in order to buy medicine for Effie. They landed the job, Effie soon re-joined them, and the Carter Quartet remained at the station for about a year.

As with any organization, and particularly with a music group, personnel changes are inevitable and the expected for various reasons. The Chuck Wagon Gang remained essentially a family group through the years. As family members retired or left the group, other family members as well as non-family members came into the group. To date, forty-nine known individuals have played their respective roles in the Chuck Wagon Gang. This is not a lot of people, considering the longevity of the group. Each edition has remained a close-harmony quartet, and contributed to the onward success of the Chuck Wagon Gang.

In 1998 all past members of the Gang were inducted into the Gospel Music Association’s Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN. Their recordings are among the historic recordings at both the White House and The Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC.
