Ernie Phillips (February 8, 1950 - November 29, 2018)
Ernie Phillips sang tenor for the Kingsmen Quartet in the late 1970s and early 1980s. His voice can be heard on several Kingsmen recordings including Chattanooga Live, Just A Little Closer Home, The Upper Window, Your Ride Is On The Way and Live...Naturally.
After his stint with the Kingsmen, Phillips traveled with Squire Parsons And Redeemed for a number of years and performed as a soloist.
