News Roundup

In my absence, here’s some things that have happened:

1. Naomi Sego Hires New Group– This is a somewhat shocking development, what with all the talk surrounding the group’s “final project” and Naomi’s retirement and all, but I am glad to still see her singing. Sego is hiring two former members of the group: Jerry Gill and Scott Spangler.

2. Skyline Boys sign with Crossroads Entertainment – And once again, Mickey Gamble brings a great group into the fold. Being from my homestate of VA, I have heard the Skyline Boys before. The group sounds great, especially with Jodi Hosterman on tenor. Can’t wait to hear future stuff from these guys.

3.SGConcerts.com Launched A project that’s been in the works for some time now has finally come to fruition. Fellow SG blogger Daniel Mount launched the site this past week, and I am proud to be part of the writing team. Check us out if you like a good concert review every now and then.

4. Matt Dibler’s Nephew Found
– And on a sad note, Brian Fouty’s body was discovered in Iraq. Fouty is The Inspirations lead Matt Dibler’s nephew. Please keep the family in your prayers.

And yet another legendary, mainstay group retires…

According to the Singing News website, the group has signed with Vine Records to record this project. Producer Wayne Haun says, “This is a very special project to me. I grew up listening to Naomi and the Segos, and I know what a priceless treasure they are to the Southern Gospel music industry. I am honored to be a part of their final release as a group.”

The project is slated for a January 2008 release, and I definitely plan on getting a copy.
