Gospel Music FanFair Welcomes The Cupps

Gospel Music FanFair welcomes The Cupps, Wednesday Night, May 11, 2022, at The Center for Rural Development, Somerset KY.

The Cupps were taken to Nashville, TN. by brother Carroll McGruder of the national singing group “The McGruders,” and introduced to Kevin McManus, the owner of Oak Valley Sound Studio and Zion Music Group (Zion Music is a Nashville Teleproduction Company located in Nashville, TN).

In 1996, The Cupps signed a major recording contract with Zion Music and remained on their label for several years before deciding to record as independent artists. Although The Cupps chose to leave the label, they still did all their recordings with Kevin McManus. They have recorded a total of ten different projects with Kevin, including their latest project entitled "Heaven Is Real."

As of January 2011, The Cupps felt God leading them in a new direction with their music. Although they have had offers to sign with two of the nation's major labels, they felt it wasn't God's will at this present time. The Cupps new direction includes releasing all their new radio singles on Crossroads Radio Sampler as independent artist. Crossroads released their new single "I Found The Rock" to radio in January 2011 and many radio stations have already reported it as a listener favorite on their station.

The Cupps are known by their song entitled, “What’s Wrong With Living Right”.  This song has been a favorite of most southern gospel lovers over the years. In 2006, it received national recognition charting at the number 32 position on the national charts, and continuing on the charts for eight consecutive months in a row. This song also had international success, charting in the top twenties in some countries. It remains a favorite of southern gospel fans and experiences consistent national airplay until this day. More stations keep adding to their play list.

We're committed to helping others to know the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Cupps have released several songs over the past years that have charted in the “Singing News – Top 80” and the “US Gospel News – America’s Top 100” songs in the nation, including everyone’s favorites, "Army Of Angels" and “The Man In The Middle”.  Other songs appearing on the national charts include “I Found The Rock" - “He’s My Friend” -“Broken Pieces” - “I’m So Thankful” -“It Wasn’t The Nails” and “He’ll Be Calling Us Home” .

In late 2006, The Cupps enjoyed more success, as they became a very popular singing group on “EnLighten - XM 34” a national southern gospel radio station on XM Satellite Radio. And 2007 brought more good things to The Cupps as they signed a national distributing contract with “New Day” to place their music in Christian bookstores all across the country. New Day is a national distributing company. The Cupps have recorded eight (10) projects with Zion Music since 1996.

The Cupps perform at churches, camps, conferences, schools, auditoriums, homecomings, and festivals. They have often performed at several events as a host group. The Cupps have also shared the stage with most all mainsteam groups. Their meek and humble spirit will touch your heart.
