Claris G "Cat" Freeman (March 11, 1922 - March 21, 1989)
Cat Freeman was an accomplished tenor singer, the older brother of Vestal Goodman. Cat pulled stints with several of the best known quartets in Southern Gospel music. He was with the Statesmen from 1951-1953. He returned to that group from 1957-1958 following the sudden, unexpected passing of Denver Crumpler. Cat also sang tenor for the Blackwood Brothers, the Oak Ridge Quartet, Revelaires Quartet, Melody Masters Quartet, and the Jubilee Quartet.
