Paul Staggs is an accomplished singer/songwriter from a little town in east Texas who has seen God move in big ways. As a youth, he had no desire to be a musician, but had dreams of becoming a professional athlete. However, God had other plans for him. His brother bought him his first guitar at 17, almost immediately he began to sing and write songs from his heart. Throughout the years he continued to sing, write songs, and perform in several groups until God called him into a full-time music ministry in 1995. From 1995-2000, he sang in revivals, youth rallies and camps and just wherever God opened up the doors. In early 2001, God was putting it on his heart as well as Robert Welch to begin a Country Christian Duo that would be a breath of fresh air and minister to people in a powerful way. Since that time, numerous opportunities to minister in a variety of venues that sometimes takes them outside the doors of the church, without compromising the message of the gospel that God has put on their hearts. Paul has been married to his lovely wife Becky for 16 years. They have 2 lovely daughters, Emily and Lydia. They live in Spring, Texas and attend Believers Fellowship.

Robert Wm Welch has a very unique Christian music style that ranges from down-home Country to the upbeat Bluegrass sound. A native Houstonian, Robert now lives in Spring, Texas with his wife, Jeannie and two children, Nicole and Nathan. They attend North Houston Christian Fellowship. He learned to play the guitar at fourteen and throughout his years, Robert experienced many different styles of music, but his desire has always been in country music. And it was only natural to use the new young sound of country, with a Christian message to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music. After serving in the Marine Corps, he returned home to his roots in Houston to sing and play for many years with quartets, bands and Praise Teams. God opened the door for Robert to pursue full-time music ministry in 1996 with three solo projects to date. Now he and Paul can be found at many of the PRCA Rodeos around Texas and just about anywhere people enjoy country music, spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Christian country music. They now perform at churches, concerts, rodeos, fairs, retreats and many other engagements.
