The Spencer Family will reunite for a one-night-only concert tonight in Mansfield Ohio at Cornerstone Free Will Baptist. JB, Barbara, Wade, Geniece, and Kevin are all expected to participate.

Jim & Melissa Brady announced Layke Jones will no longer be part of the group. The couple will continue appearing as a duet in 2019, presumably changing their billing from Jim Brady Trio to Jim & Melissa Brady.

    Where was the Brady announcement? I can’t find it anywhere.

      You should see it soon. Sometimes we are out in front of the other news agencies. The press release went out to media by email around 1:35 PM, and our News Nuggets article typically goes up at 2:00 PM Eastern on Fridays, so it was just the luck of the timing for us.

    Jim and Melissa are great, but I really loved them as part of a trio.
