Gene McDonald to appear at Florida Boys’ farewell?
Yesterday’s SGN Scoops e-update included a tribute to the Florida Boys by LaShay Bankston that had the following tidbit of information:
Josh Garner and Butch Owens make up the rest of the group at tenor and bass, respectfully. Before moving over to the tenor spot left vacant by Harold Reed, Josh sang lead for the group, and at 28 years old, he is one of the best voices in Southern Gospel Music. Butch Owens joined the group when Gene McDonald left to pursue other career opportunities. Both will rejoin the group at NQC for one final stand.
It’s rather odd that my first and last times to see the Florida Boys will be on the same weekend–but at least Gene McDonald will be there! [EDIT: Hopefully-see comments]
