“I was saddened when I received the news of the passing of Bishop F. C. Barnes. Bishop Barnes was the true patriarch of his family, consummate leader to his church ministry, highly dedicated professional in his dealings with his music ministry and always a gentleman. He wrote one of the greatest songs of all time so I affectionately referred to him as, “Mr. Rough Side Of The Mountain” I’m honored to have had the opportunity to serve in his music legacy. Bishop F. C. Barnes will be greatly missed.”-D.A. Johnson-Malaco’s Executive Director/Gospel Division
