Nick Trammell Resigns From The Perrys

It would seem the personnel change bug has bitten Southern Gospel Music once again here recently. From The Perrys’ newsletter today:


Nick Trammell has tenured his resignation to the Perrys. Trammell joined the group as baritone vocalist in August of 2006.

“I would like to thank all of those who have supported and loved me over the past two-and-a-half years,” says Nick. “I don’t feel that I am done in Southern Gospel music, nor in ministry. But for now, I feel God is moving me to a new chapter in my life. I don’t know what is to come but I believe stepping out in faith is what I need to do to be shown what is next.

“I would like to thank Tracy, Libbi and all of those on the Perrys’ bus for giving me a chance and taking me in as family. I wish them God’s best in the future. Please continue to pray for Jessica and I as we seek God’s will for whatever it is that God has in store for us. We love you all.”

“We certainly wish Nick God’s blessings on all of his endeavors,” adds Tracy Stuffle of the Perrys. “God rewards faith, and as such, we know that God can use Nick in ways that will honor Him.

“When personnel changes have come our way in the past, we’ve anxiously awaited to see the person God would put in our path. We hope to be able to announce the name of our new baritone soon.” Troy Peach will be filling in until a decision has been made.”

I must say this is another change I never saw coming. Certainly, Nick Trammell has been a tremendous asset to the group, and he is a fine young vocalist whom I hope to see traveling with a group again soon.

I’m curious to see who The Perrys will hire as their next baritone. The Perrys have never been slouches in who they hire, so it will be interesting to see. Their upcoming project hasn’t had vocals recorded yet, to the best of my knowledge, so the replacement should have no trouble leaving his own mark on it.
