About New Legacy Project

Price, owner and founder of New Legacy Project, began his 40-year career in Southern Gospel music with the legendary Blackwood Brothers Quartet. Originally a protégé of the late Cecil Blackwood, Rick was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame with the Grammy and Dove-award winning group in the 1990’s.

After Cecil’s death, and with the support of his widow, he and Chris Blackwood formed the Blackwood Legacy. It was Price’s desire to carry on the heritage of his beloved mentor. The group has been continuously touring through the United States since their formation in 2001.

In 2016, Price made the decision to rename the group to New Legacy Project, recognizing that God was speaking into the ministry in a new way. Price has surrounded himself with some of the finest singers and musicians in the industry today. Known for their flawless harmonies, homespun humor and impeccable delivery, the group tour about 180 dates per year, coast to coast.
