Dustin Sweatman leaves Mark Trammell Quartet; Nick Trammell joins
The Mark Trammell Quartet has announced that Dustin Sweatman is leaving to accept the Renaissance Program Director of Choirs position at Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee. He will remain with the group through the National Quartet Convention and start with Bethel the following week.
He will be replaced by Mark Trammell’s son Nick Trammell. Nick has performed with the Perrys and, most recently, with his wife Jessica’s family, The Browns.
The announcement states:
Nick shares that he is excited to fulfill a dream of standing beside his father in Christian work. Likewise, Mark is pleased to have his son joining him as he carries on a quartet tradition that Mark first loved as a child growing up in Arkansas.
“This is definitely a time of growth for our ministry and the doors of opportunity have been thrown open,” says Mark. “I had to know that Nick’s desire to follow in my footsteps was not only Nick’s desire but more importantly God’s plan for everyone involved.
The announcement closes by noting that the group will debut a new recording at the National Quartet Convention—and a new full-time pianist afterwards.
