  1. Should be interesting…I bet they hire Mark Cates as bass…

    • This is very cool! The Sheltons are one of the best groups ever that few know about. It is my understanding they were the first group to record Jesus Is Coming Soon. Very proud for Junior Shelton!

  2. The Dixie Echoes performed at my church this evening & I really liked this new tenor…..love his voice. It was a great concert.

    • Great tenor!!! Congrats Junior!
