Bryan Walker joins Perrys

Libbi Perry Stuffle just sent out an announcement that Troy Peach is leaving the Perrys, and that Bryan Walker will be filling the baritone position (effective October 22, 2010).

Bryan has been a member of Safe Harbor and the Dixie Melody Boys; in pursuits outside of Southern Gospel, he has been a semi-finalist on the American Idol talent competition and a police officer for the city of Sevierville, Tennessee.

Tracy Stuffle stated:

“Troy feels that his work with the Perrys is done, so we want to offer our appreciation for all of the hard work and effort that he gave to our group during the past two and a half years. We love Troy and we wish him nothing but God’s blessings for all of his future plans. At the same time, we’re excited about welcoming Bryan Walker to our group. He’s a great young man and a fine singer. So make sure you say hello to him at a concert soon!”

A review of the Perrys’ new CD, Blue Skies, has already been written and is scheduled to be posted tomorrow. I will leave the observations about Troy Peach and the current lineup untouched—as a parting tribute. For Blue Skies will be receiving a five-star review. Peach is going out on top.

  1. I saw Bryan at the NQC and asked him what he was doing there. He was just visiting then. I was hoping that he was going to come back to full time gospel music. He has a great voice and is a good fit for the Perrys in my opinion. Thanks for the head’s up Daniel!

  2. Too much quality present and upcoming talent out there not with a group these
    Maybe the application what Jesus taught us with the feeding of the five thousand is a good thing in southern gospel music today.
    It might make valleys for some now but create more mountain tops in the future.

  3. Just saw The Perrys on Sunday and Bryan is a perfect fit! They were awesome and the chemistry is right on! Bryan has a wonderful voice and is a truly nice guy. One of the nicest I have met from any group I have heard! And the new CD “Blue Skies” is fantastic!
