Dixie Echoes hire Trent Adams

The Dixie Echoes just announced that their new bass singer will be Trent Adams. Adams is nineteen years old and hails from Ashland, Alabama. He’ll start with the group next Thursday, February 11, in Baton Rouge, LA.

The press release stated:

We believe that Trent is one of the best young bass singers and we are excited that he has accepted the offer to become part of the Dixie Echoes. Trent is an exceptional young bass singer, and we feel that our fans will love his smooth bass voice and friendly personality.

Since the announcement of the departure of Pat Barker, we have been overwhelmed with the response we have received. While we auditioned several fantastic bass singers for the position, we truly feel the addition of Trent to the Dixie Echoes is the right choice. We would like to thank everyone for their interest.

Joining the Dixie Echoes family along with Trent will be his wife, Jessica, and their daughter, Anzlee. Please join us in welcoming this young family. We are excited to see what the Lord has in store for the Dixie Echoes in our 50th year of ministry. Please remember to keep us in your prayers.

  1. A very good choice for the Dixie Echoes. Hope Trent fits in good with them and has a long career with DE. He has a great bass voice and should sound good singing on the two mikes like they use. Can’t wait to see him singing with them. Congratulations DE on a good choice and to Trent for being available for them.

  2. Yes, can hardly wait to hear him with the quartet.

  3. saw them Sunday in Santa Rosa Beach FL. Pat did most of the singing, but brought up Trent for a solo and a couple of songs with the group. He has a big voice for a young man. He has known Pat Barker for a few years and it sounded like Pat recommended him. I want to also state that Mark Trammell picked the right guy in Pat. What an enthusiastic fine person. He was encouraging Trent in the songs, and you could see that some tutoring had already happened.

  4. I’m so excited about Trent joining the DE. He’s an incredible young vocalist and will do a great job! Can’t wait to hear him with the guys. 🙂

  5. Congratulations to the Dixie Echoes for hiring Trent Adams! He is a young man who possesses an enormous amount of talent. Who better to bring him along than a group of solid professional Southern Gospel singers and musicians, Randy, Scoot, Wesley and Stewart. I certainly cannot wait to hear them sing together. Dale would be proud!
