Born in 1944, Doyle Lawson had brief stints playing with Jimmy Martin and J.D. Crowe in the 1960s. In 1971 he joined the Country Gentlemen, with whom he toured and recored extensively through the 1970s. In 1979 he formed Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver with the initial lineup of Terry Baucom, Jimmy Haley and Lou Reid. The band's lineup has changed many times over the years, but its emphasis on smooth harmonies and a mix of gospel and secular songs has remained constant.
