  1. Awesome!!! My little brother and I were just talking about this last night. About how we have not seen a video of Jerry Martin with KH yet. They sound great! Jerry does not look like he is comfortable just yet but that will come!! Daniel, do you know if “Who Do You Think” is going to be on their new album? Thanks again for the video!

    • J.C., “Who Do You Think” is on their “It’s Christmas” CD released near the end of last year.

  2. It’s good to see him doing well, I really enjoyed him when he was with the DB’s. But, is it just me or does it look like Jerry is two feet shorter than everyone else?

    • Jerry can proudly be counted among the ranks of short tenors (Wes Hampton, David Sutton, etc.) 😀

  3. Yeah, but he ain’t that short! Ha! I just don’t think they let him step up all the way up on the stage.

    • But here’s the thing: He’s standing next to Arthur Rice. Pretty much ANYONE (except Steve French) looks short next to Arthur!

      And here we’ve been used to seeing him stand next to McCray Dove!

  4. Thanks Brian. I don’t know why I have not purchased that CD yet. I will probably do that later this week. And Jerry is not very tall but Arthur is definitely tall. I’m 6’7″ and Arthur is right there with me. He may be 6’6″ but like Daniel said we are accustom to seeing him stand next to McRay and they are both pretty short. No negativity intended.

  5. I met McCray once…we’re the same height!

  6. Jerry stands low but sings high…

    • Now, that’s true! He is a fantastic Tenor!

  7. I saw KH’s on the third night Jerry was with them and while he looked a little nervous (understandably), he did a really good job. He will loosen up with all those big personalities around him. They are a fun group of guys and Jerry will start to blend in. Although, he doesn’t seem the type to get very energetic on stage (or does it just seem that way when you stand by McCray)? :)Billy is surely missed, but congrats to Jerry!

    From icy and snowy Dallas,

  8. looks a bit stiff, but he was always a better singer than stage actor.

  9. Jerry makes any quartet sound better….

  10. I agree Jerry makes any quartet sound better. I’m looking forward to seeing them when they come down my way. Thanks, for posting the videos.

  11. How long before Jerry makes a trip to Steve & Arthur’s barber?
