News Roundup #8

There are several interesting stories in Southern Gospel today.

  • Karen Peck & New River’s Devin McGlamery was featured in his hometown paper, the Valdosta Daily Times, a few days ago. The article contains a good summary of his background, his advice to young singers, and his thoughts on a Grammy nomination. (Hat tip, DA.)
  • Idaho’s Liberty Quartet will be featured on Rob Patz’s Southern Styles show this Saturday, Feb. 2, at 5 PM Eastern, 3 PM Mountain Time.
  • Last August, the Dixie Echoes bus caught fire and was totaled. They replaced it in November, and things were humming along nicely until January 25, when it died on the way to a concert. The mechanic determined that the engine was completely blown and would need to be replaced. On top of that, while they were parked in a Wal-Mart parking lot, trying to determine what to do, the driver of an 18-wheeler semi ran into their bus and left significant damage to the back of their bus.

  1. Hmm… With all the trouble that the Dixie Echoes are having with buses, maybe they should take the Pfiefer route and go with a plane.

    *tongue in cheek, partly*

  2. I dunno man, I’d hate for that plane to spontaneously combust in mid-air. They’d be looking for another tenor.

    *tongue firmly planted in cheek*

  3. Actually, since Randy has his pilot’s license, them taking a plane could work. haha
