Dixie Melody Boys inducted into a Hall of Fame

The Christian Music Hall of Fame in Texas recently announced that they will be inducting the Dixie Melody Boys in November; other inductees this year Wayne Watson, Take 6, Nicole C. Mullen, DeGarmo and Key, Jeoffrey Beward and Susie Luchsinger.

This organization should not be confused with the most recognized hall of fame, the Gospel Music Association’s Gospel Music Hall of Fame in Tennessee, or with the Southern Gospel Music Association’s Southern Gospel Hall of Fame in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

This year also marks the Dixie Melody Boys’ 50th Anniversary; owner/manager Ed O’Neal stated:¬†“I am more excited about the future of the group than I have been in many years. With so many special events and projects planned for this year, 2011 will be a great year for the Dixie Melody Boys.”

  1. I have loved the DMBs since the day the “Uncle Jessie” song came out (and before that). Fun is poked at them for the Ed O’Neal University, but I say you can’t produce produce legendary talent unless you ARE legendary talent. They are due all the praise they get. Bravo and I hope Ed has many more years of singing and traveling.

  2. “a hall of fame.”

    Good one!
