Brian Free & Assurance

Brian Free is undeniably the most recognizable southern gospel tenor of our generation. Since 1982, he has been at the forefront of southern gospel music since first joining Gold City Quartet, then moving on to form his own group, Assurance.

Brian has enjoyed tremendous success in his musical career, but his first priority has and always will be his family. They say that behind every good man is a great woman, and Pam Free certainly confirms that saying. Pam is responsible for much of the business behind the ministry and keeps things running smoothly. Pam and Brian are blessed with two sons, Ricky and Bryce. Ricky is a talented drummer and tours with Assurance while Bryce is still in school. This family unit is the foundation for Brian and offers a welcome calm in the middle of a busy career.

Southern gospel music has always been Brian's first love, and fans have responded to his music by honoring him as Favorite Male Singer in 1987 and voting him Favorite Tenor a record eight times throughout the years. He was also named Favorite Young Artist in 1989 and 1991. Brian Free & Assurance was voted Horizon Group in 1994, and their album 4 God So Loved was named Favorite Album in 1998.

Today, Brian Free & Assurance continue making music that touches people and changes lives. Traveling with Brian is a talented group of singers and musicians. Lead singer Bill Shivers, baritone singer Derrick Selph, bass singer Keith Plott, drummer Ricky Free and pianist Scott McDowell round out Assurance. The Harper Agency has enjoyed a long relationship with Brian and handles booking. Brian Free & Assurance record for Daywind Music Group.

Whether singing at a rural church, city auditorium, large arenas with the Gaither Homecoming Tour or on national television, Brian Free & Assurance have one purpose…to share the love of Jesus through music.
