The Steeles recently signed a recording agreement with StowTown Records reuniting them with Wayne Haun who produced their music 25 years ago. A new album is planned for release in a few months.

The Dixie Melody Boys announced they have added Earl Roberts and Cayden Howell to fill the bass and lead singer positions respectively. Roberts and Howell formerly sang together in Appointed Quartet, a regional group based in Tunnel Hill, Georgia. Group owner/manager and bass singer Ed O’Neal will continue to make appearances with the Dixie Melody Boys as his health permits.

Mobile, Alabama-based trio Day Three announced the departure of founding member and baritone singer Bo Sullivan. Anyone interested in being considered for the baritone position should submit an email consisting of a recent photo, short biography, MP3 or video clip to day3trio@gmail.com.

The 3 Heath Brothers have a new concept video for their song “Smell Of Smoke.” Check it out below.

Lauren Talley released a new concept video for the title song from one of her 2019 solo albums, Glorious God. The video adds a spoken introduction by Debra Talley which wasn’t included on the audio version. You can watch it below.
