News Roundup #11

There are a couple of news stories in Southern Gospel today:

  • The Greenes have announced that Paul Lancaster has joined the group. [EDIT, 2/22/13: Broken link removed.] Lancaster has quite the resume, having performed with The Mullins, The Nelons, The Martins, and most recently Everyday Driven. He’s also filled in with Karen Peck and New River, Three Bridges, The Booth Brothers, and others.
  • Song Garden Music Group has announced a new website. Of course, new websites are launched every week in our genre, but I mention this one since, as a website designer myself, I thought whoever designed this did a very good job.

  1. So, if Paul Lancaster is with the Greenes now, what’s happened to Everyday Driven….???

  3. Has anybody set an over/under number on how long Lancaster stays? Not that I would encourage gambling mind you, I just mean for fun. đŸ˜‰

    Actually, I’ve always enjoyed Paul’s singing. But with the number of groups he’s passed through, he has to realize that he’s acquiring(acquired?) a reputation. Then again, I heard on the radio yesterday that the average person under some age (maybe 40?) stays at a job an average of 2.5 years. I guess I’m abnormal. I’m under 40 and I’ve been employed by my company for 15+ years.

  4. Paul is far from David Hill territory. The Mullins, Sunday Drive, and Everyday Driven are, to me anyway, variations of the same group. He did leave the Nelons, but didn’t almost everyone else? The Martins came off the road. Was that decision made because he left or did they leave him? All the other groups (plus Crossway, who he filled in with at NQC one year) were temporary arrangements and were announced as such. If the one person whose group Paul seems to leave most often (Buddy Mullins) always lets him rejoin, he must not be thought of too badly.
