Eric Phillips returns to Mark Trammell Quartet
Ever since Joel Wood left the Mark Trammell Quartet several months ago, more than a few individuals—fans and performers alike—have commented that their dream scenario would be Eric Phillips returning to the road.
Sometimes dreams come true.
Mark Trammell has posted this announcement on his Facebook page:
After three months of searching, praying, and auditioning. Mark Trammell Quartet is happy to announce that former Mark Trammell TRIO tenor Eric Phillips will rejoin the group at the end of the year.
Eric has faithfully served the city of Gadsden, Alabama as a law enforcement officer for the last 2 years and has earned highest honors in his service to them. Eric states “When music is in your blood, it’s hard to get it out. I’m looking forward to getting back on the road with Mark and the guys, seeing friends I haven’t seen in two and a half years and most importantly encouraging people with the gospel message thru song!”
Mark states: “I couldn’t be happier with Eric‘s decision to return. He loved being a police officer and I admired him for his work. The first song we sang together when he asked to be considered again confirmed what God was trying to tell everyone in the room. All I can say is welcome home Eric, good to have you back!”
Mark continues, “We would like to thank 28 men and two ladies that showed interest in filling the position. We are honored that you would trust this ministry that much. Also, we MUST thank our friend Jim Cox from Cumming, Ga for his excellent job of filling in at the tenor position over the last two months. Jim has been a true joy to our fans and friends across the country.”
Just in case you’re new to Southern Gospel, or had forgotten how good Eric is, here is a little reminder:
