Southern Gospel tenor singer. Crumpler started his professional career with the Stamps Melody Boys in the mid-1930s. In 1938, he joined the Rangers Quartet and help make it one of the top Southern Gospel quartets in the country.

Crumpler moved to the Statesmen Quartet in 1953, completing what many consider "the perfect quartet", along with Jake Hess, Doy Ott, James "Big Chief" Wetherington, and Hovie Lister. Some of Crumpler's signature songs with the Statemen were "Old Fashioned Love", "My God is Real", and "I Have a Desire".

Denver Crumpler died suddenly at the age of 44 due to complications of diabetes.

Crumpler was inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 1973 and was a member of the initial set of inductees to the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 1997.
