Dixie Echoes Seeking Tenor & Bass

July 07, 2011 By: Aaron Category: SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music, The Dixie Echoes

A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that Dixie Echoes bass singer Trent Adams had turned in his notice, and the group was taking auditions for a new bass. Now, the group is seeking to fill the tenor position after Wesley Smith has left the group. To quell any rumors before they start, here is the announcement from the group’s Facebook page last night:

“The Dixie Echoes are now seeking a Tenor & Bass 🙂 Just to answer any questions, nothing is going on here. Nobody has been fired, nobody is on bad terms, just unfortunately Wesley has turned in his notice, leaving us with two open positions. Interested singers can email demos to stewart@dixieechoes.com. We appreciate your prayers through this transition.”

Update: Right after I hit the publish button, I noticed that Daniel Mount had posted an update to his post about this, in which Stewart Varnado commented on the current plans of the group. To sum it up, the group is traveling as a trio this weekend, and former Dixie Echoes tenors will be filling in until a new tenor is found. There should be a bass announced within the month. Wesley Smith has joined a group much closer to his home, and an announcement is forthcoming.

    Hey all,

    The Dixie Echoes have a great bass in Mike Jennings. One of the somoothest basses around. I’ve had the privledge of singing with Mike over the past 3 1/2 years. I know what I’m taliking about. Although I hate to see him leave us, this is a great fit for the Dixie Echoes.
