Harold Reid of the Statler Brothers Passes Away at Age 80

Harold Reid, 80, passed away on April 24, according to a statement by the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Harold was the longtime bass vocalist in the Statler Brothers quartet. Originally named The Four Star Quartet and later The Kingsmen, the quartet re-branded themselves as the Statler Brothers in the early 1960s with Harold, brother Don Reid, Phil Balsley and Lew DeWitt, and continued making music until their farewell tour in 2002. Jimmy Fortune replaced DeWitt in the 1980s.

The Statler Brothers won multiple Grammy Awards, CMA Awards and ACM Awards. They were elected to the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2007 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008. “Flowers on the Wall” and “Bed of Roses” are two of the quartet’s most well-known hits.
