From the latest happenings in the industry, we have three questions that have piqued our interest:
1). Jim Brady Trio-
With the departure of Tim Parton from the trio, what direction will Jim and Melissa Brady decide to go? They could bring in another harmony vocalist and musician or they could search for another true feature singer type vocal and add another dynamic to the group.
2). Kingsmen quartet-
While Ernie Phillips is doing a nice job filling in with the legendary quartet, who will they bring in as the permanent tenor?
Some of you may not be familiar with this group yet but I do encourage you to give them a try if you like country gospel.Their shows are definitely entertaining and ministry focused. The group has announced the hiring of Dustin Hood on baritone. Having heard the group perform live, Dustin has a nice voice but his style is much more traditional southern gospel than the previous vocalists they have had who sang more on the lines of progressive country in style. With lead singer Jym Howe also being more traditional in style, will the group shift its sound away from country and back to traditional southern gospel or will they expect Hood to change his natural style to fit the group? It will be interesting to see what the group does.
