Ball Brothers hire Chad McCloskey
The Ball Brothers announced about a week ago that bass singer Josh Ball was leaving the group. They have now announced his replacement, Chad McCloskey, and posted this video:
Two items of particular interest: (1) It looks like Cody McVey’s hair is now red. (2) In this song, at least, Daniel Ball is singing bass. He has been the group’s lead singer up to this point. SouthernGospelBlog.com is contacting him for further comment.
UPDATE: From Daniel Ball:
I just sang bass on that particular song and Chad was singing lead. We hired Chad because of his versatility. He sang bass on most of the songs his first weekend, but as you can hear from the clip, he has a great range. We won’t keep him in the basement all the time. =) We’ll utilize each guy on harmonies depending on who is carrying the melody on each song. Our goal is to continue and expand on the blends and harmonies that make us different from other quartets. We’re four vocalist and a pianist.
