Guess the Baby Picture Contest #9

Do you know your favorite Southern Gospel singers well enough that you would recognize them anywhere—even in pictures from when they were children?

Let’s find out. We’ve had great fun with episodes 123456, 7 and 8. With eight pictures left, we plan to run four each this week and next, to bring this series to a close. Can you name these four singers?

UPDATE (6/29/11, 10:10 PM): We have a winner! The Garms Family, who were also the first to correctly identify Tami Crist Starkel, correctly guessed Jeremy Peace as singer #1, in the first submission with all four correct. This brings our longest-running installment yet to a happy ending.

Singer 1 (Jeremy Peace)

Correctly guessed to be Jeremy Peace of the Old Paths Quartet (and formerly of the Kingsmen).

Singer 2 (Tami Crist Starkel)

Correctly guessed to be the Crist Family’s soprano, Tami Crist Starkel.

Singer 3 (Jackie Crist)

Correctly guessed to be the Crist Family’s other soprano, Jackie Crist.

Singer 4 (Riley Clark)

Correctly guessed to be Tribute Quartet’s tenor, Riley Harrison Clark.

The first person to guess all four correctly will receive a copy of the 2000 Kingsmen recording Proven…Time & Time Again.

  1. #2 is a McKamey.

    • In that event, would you guess it to be Connie or Sheryl?

      • Mmm, whichever one is younger (this looks relatively recent). I think that’s Sheryl.

        I’m no good at pictures, as I’ve said before. The Steward Varnado picture – I thought it would turn out to be a Trammell.

      • I’m honestly not sure which is younger! They aren’t too far apart, I think.

      • Oh, well never mind. I thought they were different generations!

        I know who I like to hear sing, and not always too much else. I haven’t heard hardly any McKamey’s music in years.

      • It would be embarrassing if I got this wrong, but I think Carol is Peg’s sister, but Connie and Sheryl are Peg’s daughters.

      • You are correct, for what my input is worth. http://www.mckameysonline.com/

      • Sheryl is about 2 years younger than Connie.

      • Levi – thanks for checking! I didn’t have that time this morning, so I was going by memory on that.

  2. number 3 has to be jackie crist

    • Sorry, hogfan – you have to guess all four for it to be counted as a valid guess!

  3. #2 has to be Susan Whisnant!

    • Sorry, Megan – you have to guess all four for it to be counted as a valid guess!

  4. Wow barely any guesses on this one

    • I guess that having four people scares readers off! Ah, well, maybe I should double the prizes. 🙂

  5. #1 – Eric Bennett (Triumphant Qt)
    #2 – Susan Whisnant (Whisnants)
    #3 – Jackie Crist (Crist Family)
    #4 – Jeff Tolbert (Primitive Qt)

    Maybe?

    • It’s been long enough to get a first full guess that I’ll tell you more than I usually do! You are neither 100% correct nor 100% incorrect! 🙂

      • That means I have a 66% chance of being at least halfway correct! Yay!

      • Ha! I’ll leave the math part up to you; you’ve lost me there!

  6. 1. Glenn Dustin
    2. Susan Whisnant
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Tim Riley

    • Definitely reasonable guesses, but this one isn’t a home run! Sorry!

      (After typing not all three correct for so many hundreds of times over the last few weeks, I’d been wanting to bump it up to four so that I could use the shorter home run terminology for a while now!)

  7. 1. Glen Dustin
    2. Susan Whisnant
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Cody Mcvey

    • Sorry, JSR – very reasonable guesses, but not a home run!

  8. Not very many people have commented,so I’ll throw another guess out there.

    1. Eric Bennett
    2. Diane Wilkinson
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Tim Riley

    • Feel free to post as many guesses as you like – even if you have a few ideas once I’ve gone to sleep. It’s fine to post a few in a row. As I recall, at least one of our winners won that way.

      Sorry – this particular one isn’t it!

  9. Oh, I feel like guessing, but I don’t want to let someone else miss out on the prize.. What shall I do?? 😉

    • I’m inclined to say – go ahead and guess, and if you manage to blow everyone away and hit a home run this early (early by # of comments, not by hours!), then you’ve fairly earned the prize – or you can have me send it to the person who got next closest!

  10. 1- Jonathan Price
    2- Sheryl McKamey Ferris
    3- Brianna Crist
    4- Roger Fortner

    • SanGram – great guesses, but not a home run! Sorry!

  11. FYI- Sheryl Farris of the McKamey’s has never, in fact, been a “McKamey.” Ms. Peg and her fellow sisters (and founding group members) Carol and Dora were the only true “McKameys” to be a part of the group. Ruben Bean married Peg and they gave birth to Connie and Sheryl. That would make Connie “Connie Bean-Fortner” and Sheryl “Sheryl Bean-Farris.”

    More than one person have called Sheryl “Sheryl McKamey Farris” on this board which is actually incorrect.

    Just a little tidbit.

    • Ah, yes, of course. That may have even slipped out of my mouth by accident at some point! You are, naturally, correct!

  12. Not sure about the others… But the last one has to be Riley Clark.

  13. Eric bennett
    Sue dodge
    Lauren talley
    Daniel Riley

    • Lee65 – sorry, not a home run!

  14. Since we are now at the 24-hour mark, and consensus has developed around #3, I will reveal that it is indeed Jackie Crist.

    So now, we are down to three to guess! Hopefully that’s a less intimidating number, and more what you are used to! 🙂

  15. 1 Eric Bennett
    2 Susan Whisnant
    3 Jackie Crist
    4 Riley Clark

    • Scott – great guesses, but not a home run!

  16. 1 Eric Bennett
    2 Susan Whisnant
    3 Jackie Crist
    4 Joseph Habedank

    • Lauren – great guesses, but sorry – not a home run!

      • Trying again!

        1 Eric Bennett
        2 Katy Peach
        3 Jackie Crist
        4 Joseph Habedank

      • Great guesses, but again, not a home run.

        I will say that #4 is not Joseph Habedank.

  17. Glen Dustin
    Sheryl Farris
    Jackie Crist
    Joseph Habedank

    • Great effort, but sorry, not a home run! As I said in my reply to the last one, #4 isn’t Joseph Habedank.

  18. Sorry I was typing and thinking while you were posting. Oops.

    • No problem! And feel free to keep guessing!

  19. 1. Eric Bennett
    2. Karen Peck Gooch
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Harrison Clark

    • Great try, but sorry, not a home run.

  20. 1. Dustin Sweatman
    2. Susan Whisnant
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Harrison Clark

    • #1 is not Dustin, so sorry, not a home run.

  21. 1. Mark Bishop
    2. Susan Whisnant
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Harrison Clark

    • Sorry! These four aren’t the correct four!

  22. 1. Jim Brady
    2. Susan Whisnant
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Harrison Clark

    • Sorry! These four are also not the correct four!

  23. #3 has been revealed, above, to be Jackie Crist.

    Despite the strong trend in this direction, #2 is actually not Susan Whisnant.

  24. 1 Eric Bennett
    2 Katy Peach
    3 Jackie Crist
    4 Devin McGlamery

    • Lauren, great guesses, but not a home run! Sorry!

  25. 1. Jonathan Price 2. Sheryl Farris 3. Jackie Crist 4. Riley Clark

    • brent – Good guesses, but not a home run. Sorry!

  26. 1. Gerald Wolfe
    2. Karen Peck Gooch
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Harrison Clark

    • Good guesses all around, but sorry, not (completely) the right ones!

  27. 1. Glen Dustin
    2. Connie Fortner
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Tim Riley

    • Great guesses, but sorry, not all of the above are correct!

      (My, my, Tim Riley is one of the favorite people to guess around here! He’s been guessed for practically any man in the contest! 😀 )

  28. 1. Gerald Wolfe (telling a joke!)
    2. Kim Hopper
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Rodney Griffin (crying about the joke!)

    Alright, these are pretty silly guesses!

    • That isn’t a correct four, since Rodney doesn’t cry at Gerald Wolfe’s jokes. (He doesn’t usually laugh either; he has a straight face!) 😀

  29. There are four names that have been mentioned more than once, but they haven’t been put together. I’ll put them together, and see what happens.

    1. Glen Dustin
    2. Sheryl Farris
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Tim Riley

    • Great try, but not all of the above are correct!

      Hint: #2 is not Sheryl Farris.

  30. I’ll keep guessing,just because so few others are!

    1. Glen Dustin
    2. Gloria Gaither
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Tim Riley

    • Yes, feel free to keep guessing! Sorry, this isn’t a home-run guess.

  31. Scott fowler
    Susan whisnant
    Jackie crist
    Chris west

    • Sorry – not all of the above are correct!

  32. Scott fowler

    Chris west

    • Sorry – neither combination is the correct one!

  33. Scott inman
    Susan whisnant
    Jackie “the beautiful” crist
    And davis sutton

    • Sorry, Jason, not all of the above are correct.

      I thought we had established in an earlier entry in this series that Scott Inman had curly hair when he was young. 🙂 #1 is not Scott Inman.

  34. 1.) Tim Riley
    2.) Tim Riley
    3.) Tim Riley
    4.) Tim Riley

    -BLT

    • Sorry, none of the above are correct! And that is a hint by itself!

    Jackie Crist
    Riley Clark

  36. 1.) Eric Bennett
    2.) Kim Hopper
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    (Is this more accurate than our first guess? 😀 )

    -BLT

    • Yes, more accurate indeed! But still, not all of the above are correct!

  37. 1.) Eric Bennett
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark (BTW: this picture reminds us of a picture of Ben when he was about that age. 🙂 )

    • Don’t we all have a picture where were were crying but our mothers made them snap the picture anyhow?

      Or are Ben and I the only two? Well … Ben and I and Riley, since it is Riley? 🙂

      Sorry – not a home run, though!

  38. 1.) Eric Bennett
    2.) TaRanda Greene
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

  39. 1. Glen Dustin
    2. Tanya Goodman Sykes
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Tim Riley

    • FairyTaleAuthor – Sorry, not all of the above are correct!

  40. Well, this is officially the longest-running contest in this series now!

    The time has come to reveal another contestant. It’s not quite unanimous yet, but as a number of you have guessed, #4 is indeed Tribute Quartet tenor Riley Clark.

    Both of the remaining two are currently performing singers, and both are or have recently (last few years) been with groups nominated for Singing News Fan Awards during their time with them.

  41. Scott fowler
    Susan whisnant
    Jackie crist

    • Sorry, Jason, not all of the above are correct!

  47. 1. Scott Fowler
    2. Sherri Easter
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Sorry, FTA, not a home run with this one, either!

  48. Time for another hint: Neither of the remaining two unidentified individuals sings their gender’s lowest vocal part. In other words, #1 is not a bass and #2 is not an alto.

    • Oh, and let me narrow it down further: #1 is not a baritone, either. Both are in the upper half of their gender’s available registers.

  49. 1. Joseph Habedank
    2. Sheri Easter
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Sorry, Hostofheaven, not a home run here, either?

  55. Not a baritone… 🙂

    1. Randy Crawford
    2. Connie Fortner
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • #1 is a baritone 🙂

      Sorry, not a home run!

      • It appears it was just a typo. That should explain the confusion.

      • Oops, yes – thanks for point out the typo. That part was indeed a typo, but where I was specifying it as a hint, I did say that it was a lead or a tenor, and by the time you posted the guess under discussion, I had already clarified that it was indeed a tenor.

  56. 1. Anthony Facello
    2. Connie Fortner
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Hostofheaven (1:57) – sorry, not a home run!

    • Sorry, but the 4:21 guess isn’t a home run!

  67. #2 is not any member of the McKameys.

    #1 has not even been named yet!

    • This is why I don’t participate in these things! 😀

  68. 1. Jeff Hawes
    2. Karen Peck Gooch
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Sorry, your 4:35 guess is not a home run!

      Perhaps I should be more clear in a follow-up to my last hint: #1 has not been named in any guess, but #2 has.

  69. 1. Jerry Martin
    2. Karen Peck Gooch

  74. I sure would like a kingsmen cd

  79. We just watched Jubilee 2 and we’re inspired…

    1.) Dustin Sweatman!
    2.) Kim Hopper
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    😀

    -BTLSJC4TGF

    • Wow! Quite a few of you there! 🙂 I actually haven’t seen Jubilee 2 myself yet…

      Sorry, not a home run!

      #1 is not Dustin.

    • AAAHHH!!! We give up! Okay, no we don’t, but we’ve fried our brains trying to figure these “kids” out!

      (And Jubilee 2 is AWESOME! We love it!)

      We’ll be back…we think.

      • Cool! If the Mark Trammell Quartet makes a guest appearance, it must indeed be incredible.

        Wait a minute – did I just say that? 😀

        I’m kidding – kinda. I love the other groups, too! I’m just in an off-the-wall mood tonight, I suppose.

        Suppose, with all six of you trying to guess it, you each offer one or two submissions. (Separate comments, please, so that I don’t lose track!) 😀

        I wonder if that would end it right there… 😀

      • We have now fallen in love with the Mark Trammel Quartet! They do a spectacular job on the video, and it definitely was highlight of the whole program. Every group was superb, but MTQ stole the show. 🙂 Can’t wait to see them in person…

      • Mark Trammell is, I do believe, the single most highly regarded baritone singer in our industry, cited as a hero / the best by more than any other. Pat is, I believe, the most acclaimed bass singer of any bass with less than a decade in top-tier groups. And Joel and Dustin can pull their weight, too, Dustin doing double duty as a great pianist on the site.

        I really hope you get the chance to see them in person!

      • We have to see them, as we need Mark Trammell to sign our Cathedral book. We need Mark, Gerald, Danny, Kirk, Danny, Bobby, and ALL former Cathedrals who are still living to sign it. (And it also has Glen, George’s and Roger’s signatures, but we didn’t get those!) 🙂

        And yes, Pat Barker has won a favorite spot in this home!

      • Very cool!

        The single most amazing and unbelievable regular concert I’ve ever attended (non-NQC or video taping) was a concert where the Mark Trammell Quartet and Danny Funderburk appeared. None of the other Cathedrals groups were there, so it wasn’t as rehearsed and scripted as the Night to Remember events are; it was all off the cuff. They joined together for an impromptu second half, and almost every song was an enthusiastic standing ovation. And Danny was in really strong voice, so he blew the roof off song after song. It was really something!

      • You’re making us jealous. 🙂 Okay, no, not really. We’re happy for you and wish we could have been there! It sounds amazing! 😀

        *Back onto topic…* 🙂

      • Thanks! It wasn’t one of those concerts that people really expected would be that good; my family didn’t even bother to go, though they sure wished they had once I got home!

        (It hadn’t been announced that MTQ and Danny would do anything together.)

  80. This is na desperate attempt…

    1. Marshall Hall
    2. Lauren Talley
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not a home run!

      Marshall Hall is not #1.

  81. 1.) Joe Kitson
    2.) Kim Hopper
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    As we were typing, we lost FOUR PEOPLE for the Sugar Creek Gang! OH NO! 🙁 But several people gave us ideas as they were leaving…

    -TL

    • Sorry, TL, not a home run!

      What is the Sugar Creek Gang?

      • You don’t know the Sugar Creek Gang? It’s a book series from the early 1940s, written by Paul Hutchens; Sam, Jayme, and Caleb love it – and our entire family as well. It’s published by Moody. (Check it out sometime, but it won’t be as good as hearing our mom read it!)

      • I specialize in a few areas and strive to know everything there is to know about them. I am, depending on your perspective, woefully or delightedly ignorant of pretty much everything else! 😀

      • It’s also Christian. (Calvinistic, but I enjoyed it anyway. 😛 ) I’m surprised your family didn’t stumble on it. BBN has it on the “Captain’s Club” every day for fifteen minutes. But I wouldn’t venture to say it’s better than TGF’s mom. 🙂

  82. 1.) Bryan Hutson
    2.) Kelly Bowling (we’re pretty sure it’s Kim, but decided to try someone else)
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not a home run!

      Just to save you the trouble of going down either path, #2’s first name does not start with a K.

  83. 1.) Jodi Hosterman
    2.) Morgan Easter (probably way too young)
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • Yes, Morgan is way too young. Sorry, not a home run!

  84. 1.) Jodi Hosterman
    2.) Lauren Talley
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not a home run. (It’s not Lauren, either; she was featured earlier in the series, and if you compare these two pictures, I think you’d notice that, so it’s no particularly big thing that I reveal it here.)

      • Yeah, we just checked! But we’re DESPERATE! How many sopranos are out there? Not many! But we’re trying to find out who she is! 🙂

      • Huge hint: I indicated above that this soprano has been previously named in this thread. 🙂

  85. 1.) Jodi Hosterman
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • You have put so much effort into this, that I will now reveal that #2 is indeed Tami Crist Starkel.

      #1 has not been named at any point in this thread.

      • AMEN! YEAH! WAHOO! YIPEE! On to number one!

      • AMEN! YEAH! WAHOO! YIPEE! On to #1!

      • Opps! Computer problems…

      • No problem; it brought a smile to my face. 🙂

      • Yes, sirs (and ma’ams)!

  86. 1.) Jodi Hosterman
    2.) Tanya Goodman Sykes (but she’s not currently with a group, is she?)
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • Yes, she is with no group presently. No, it’s not her, but see above!

  87. Hint: It had previously been revealed that #1 was a tenor or a lead. To further clarify, #1 is a tenor.

    • Okay, we’ll pass the information along; keep searching those Singing News, everybody!

  88. So without guessing the other three cause we all know who they are I will choose the correct name for number 1

    The correct answer is…. Drum roll please….. ………. A little more drum rolling………… And the answer is ……. Daniel J mount

    • You are incorrect; reference an earlier episode for my actual picture for comparison.

      Besides, even if you had been correct, it wouldn’t have been a winning entry, since the winning entry needs to name all four (even those previously revealed).

  89. 1.) David Sutton
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

  90. 1.) Joel Wood
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

  91. Number 1 is
    Jacob Kitson
    Tami Crist
    Jackie crist
    Riley clark

  92. We’re at the point in which we’re trying anyone and everyone!

    1.) Jerry Martin
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not Jerry!

      But this is the home stretch. All it takes to win it now is persistence!

  93. 1.) Wesley Smith
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not Wesley!

    • Hilarious! We were about to guess that!

      • Funny! 🙂

      • “Great minds think alike!” 🙂 Good to see y’all guessing as well! Maybe we’ll get it figured out finally…

      • I’m sure you will – the only question will be if you get it figured out before I call it a night!

  94. 1. Rich Crist (We doubt he’s a tenor.)
    2. Tami Crist Starkel
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not Rich! He is not a tenor, range-wise, as defined in Southern Gospel terms.

  95. 1. Jacob Kitson
    2. Tami Crist Starkel
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not Jacob! (I might have said that earlier.)

  96. 1.) Dan Keeton
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not Dan! I think Dan looked like he does now even at that age. (Well, except for the hair part!)

      • What part? “Some people have their hair parted on the left side, some have it parted on the right, others have it parted in the middle, and still others have it DEPARTED in the middle.” 😀 And that’s a quote from the Sugar Creek Gang!

        -Mom for TGF (The official read-aloud book reader) 🙂

      • Mom for TGF – he had hair as a child, a toupee a few years ago, and little or no hair now!

  97. 1.) Brian Free
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

  98. 1.) Might as well guess Ernie Haase for the sake of guessing Ernie Haase!
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

  99. 1. Eric Phillips
    2. Tami Crist Starkel
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

  100. 1.) Aaron Hise (sp?)
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not Aaron!

      I think y’all stand a chance of crashing the site! You’ve at least succeeded in slowing it down!

      (And yes, I am kidding about crashing it – if my server could handle somewhere near 20,000 people the day Tony Greene died, it should surely be able to handle this!)

  101. 1. Mylon Hayes
    2. Tami Crist Starkel
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

  102. 1. Harold Reed

    • Sorry, not John!

      TGF, y’all had better pick up the pace if y’all want to take this one home – my siblings are on a roll! 🙂

  104. 1. Brian Alvey
    2. Tami Crist Starkel
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not Brian!

    • Sorry, not Brian Alvey!

      • Computer problems? 😆

      • Kind of! WordPress was going slow, and I had assumed the first one hadn’t gone through.

      • That’s what happened to us earlier! 🙂

  105. 1.) Jeremy Peace
    2.) Tami Crist Starkel
    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • WE HAVE A WINNER!

      Congratulations, TGF! It is indeed Jeremy Peace, making this the first post to guess all four correctly, and the first to guess Jeremy at all!

      He formerly sang with the Kingsmen, and now sings with The Old Paths.

      • YEAHHHH!!!!! *Scream!* Everyone’s rejoicing! That was FUN!

      • It sure was! Thanks to all who participated!

      • Now you go to bed, and the LAs can too. 🙂 (And we can rest in peace…Jeremy Peace.)

      • Funny! 🙂

        What was really funny was when Jeremy Peace was singing tenor for the Kingsmen and Tony Peace was singing baritone – and they were unrelated!

        And with Brandon Reese (Ray’s son) on drums and Ray at bass, the group carried the nickname “Reese’s Peaces.” 😀

      • (Congratulations)…and we’re pretty sure we heard that scream!

      • REALLY!? You guys have good ears! 😀

        Dad doesn’t know how to get the LAs into bed since they’re so wound up! 🙂

      • I didn’t hear it all the way down in NC, though! 😀

      • My apologies to Dad Garms!

      • Dad says to tell you, “I’ll manage”, and the LAs say “goodnight”!

        “GOODNIGHT DANIEL!” – SJC

      • Goodnight, SJC!

        (and BLT & Dad & Mom Garms!)

    • Congratulations TGF!

      • Good competition! Let’s do it again sometime! 😀

      • Yep. Like…next week? 🙂

        Next week will be the final installment of the series, for the time being at least.

      • That’s the 4th of July! Are you expecting “fireworks”? Maybe you should put a caution on the last installment…”highly explosive suggestions” flying here and there through cyberspace.

        -TGF

      • Yes, 4th indeed!

        I am not expecting fireworks; I’m too much of an early bird for that. (I’m up late waiting for an overnight guest to show up – actually Sony and family – on their way to an event where they’re speaking tomorrow.)

        Back to fireworks: I have full capability to delete fireworks on this site, and I would use it – though, on the 4th, with a twinkle in my eye!

    3.) Jackie Crist
    4.) Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not Michael Booth! I can’t believe it took y’all so long to guess this one! 😀

      • WE’RE DESPERATE!!!!!

      • No need to be desperate! You had already won by the time you guessed Michael Booth, but I was so swamped I hadn’t had a chance to reply yet!

      • We knew it wasn’t Michael, but we thought we’d give it a try. 🙂 (Besides, we’re waiting for Michael’s baby picture anyway!)

      • But if he looked like he does now, it would be way too obvious!

  112. 1. Michael Booth
    2. Tami Crist Starkel
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Sorry TGF…we’re guessing the same ones!

      • Sorry, it wasn’t Michael (TGF beat you to it by a few seconds)!

  115. This is my last guess before I throw in the towel.

    1. Scott Inman (Is he even a baritone? IDK.
    2. Tami Crist Starkel
    3. Jackie Crist
    4. Riley Clark

    • Sorry, not Scott!

      It might indeed be worth throwing in the towel, since the correct answer was offered and the winner was revealed some thirty comments back.

  116. It does my heart good to see young people still enjoying the exploits of Bill Collins, Tom Till, Big Jim, Little Jim, Dragonfly, Circus, and Poetry, aka The Sugar Creek Gang. For those who think they are a tad Calvinistic, I’m pretty sure that Danny Orlis was a good Methodist boy! 😉

  117. Didn’t you say #1 was a baritone? I thought JP was a tenor. Oh well, we all get confused sometimes…

  118. I thought for sure #1 had a bass singer face. Apologies to Jeremy Peace. 😀
