And the new Booth Brother is….

… announced in this video, along with the third member of the Jim Brady Trio:

Both of these announcements carry some star power within Southern Gospel. Tim Parton is known from his years with several groups, including Gold City and, most recently, Legacy Five. Paul Lancaster has been a part of the Martins, the Greenes, and Palmetto State, among others. Both groups are getting quality vocalists, and I’m very excited to see both of them on the road again. Parton will add to the Jim Brady Trio as a pianist and arranger, in addition to his vocal duties. With the Booth Brothers, the vocal transition will be a smooth one, as Lancaster is a great blending vocalist that won’t sharply redefine the sound that the trio has cultivated over the years.

Now, hopefully we’ll get a better glimpse of the sound after the helium wears off. 🙂

The usual lineup of tenor Michael Booth, lead Ronnie Booth, and baritone Jim Brady were joined by bass Gene McDonald as a matinee performance this afternoon. Legacy Five bass Matt Fouch got some good footage of “The Sweetest Song I Know,” so check it out:

Judging on the buzz around the Internet today, I’m not alone in wanting a LOT more of this! Here are two additional videos from SocialCam.
