KINGDOM HEIRS NARROW SEARCH

Written by Staff on April 14, 2015 – 12:29 pm -

Back in September 2014,  the Kingdom Heirs’ baritone singer resigned from the group. Andy Stringfield, pianist for the group, started filling both positions –

singing and playing – during the remainder of the season at Dollywood. Traveling during their off season, the group began the search for a new baritone. The double duty for Andy was a great load for one person to do.

The Kingdom Heirs auditioned around 60 men who had applied for the position.  With their touring season ending, they narrowed the search down to three men.
With the opening of Dollywood’s 30th year and Kingdom Heirs’ 30th year singing at the park, they were scheduled for weekend shows

during the month of April, which was Dollywood’s International Festival. To make the final decision for the baritone position they brought each of the selected men to sing on four shows per weekend.

Bryan Walker, known for being a contestant on the TV series American Idol and as a member of The Perrys, was the first one to appear on stage with The Kingdom Heirs. Following Bryan came Loren Harris, another of the Perrys’ former members.  The third and final singer to audition, was Brian Alvey, who is known through the music industry.  He sang with Tribute Quartet and is married to

Lauren Talley.

You can visit the Kingdom Heirs’ website and find photos and video clips of these three on stage with The Kingdom Heirs.
Who will be the new baritone for the Kingdom Heirs? Whomever it is will be the singer that God lays on the heart of the men to select.  Everyone has a voice in the selection, and any one of these three vocalists will be a great choice for the position.

Troy Peach Returns To The Perrys

Troy Peach

“Like a son coming home,” is how Libbi Perry Stuffle makes the announcement describing the return of Troy Peach to the Perrys, a position he last held four years ago.  Troy replaces the departing Bryan Walker, whose resignation was announced two weeks ago.  Troy comes to the group having most recently toured with the Bowling Family.

Troy says, “I’m thrilled to be back with the Perrys!  Libbi and Tracy are literally like family.  We live five minutes from each other.  Jared is like a little brother.  Andrew is among the best talents in our industry.   And who sings better songs than the Perrys?  After four years, it feels good to be back with Tracy and Libbi.  It is my goal to, of course, be that vocal part they need, but also to assist Libbi in all aspects of the group’s ministry.  I do believe in timing and seasons for everything, and I believe that this is the right time to step back on the Perrys bus and do what I can to help the group continue to grow and prosper.”

The transition to the Perrys will take place in the next two weeks.  The Perrys thank everyone for their continued prayers and support during this time.

THE PERRYS ANNOUNCE BRYAN WALKER’S DEPARTURE

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on October 15, 2014 – 2:08 pm -

Bryan Walker

StowTown Recording artists The Perrys have announced Bryan Walker will be leaving the group. Libbi Stuffle says, “Bryan has given his resignation, and we will be introducing a new vocalist to the Perrys line-up in the near future. We will announce the process to fill the vacancy as soon as plans are finalized.” There is no official final performance date for Bryan at this time.

Bryan, who joined the Perrys in 2010, says it has been a hard decision, but feels God has a new season in store for him. “I have the utmost respect for Tracy and Libbi Stuffle, and I’ve had a great time traveling with the Perrys. Especially this past year and a half, God has allowed me to learn things about myself, Him, and the ministry in general. It has been my hope that God has used me for a span of time to uphold the Perrys and help move them forward in their ministry. I love the Perrys and will do everything I can to support them as they continue their ministry.”
When Bryan shared his decision to come off the road with the Perrys, it was focused on he and wife Bethany’s desire to spend more time together and eventually start a family. However, Bryan says the day after he gave his notice, he was at a revival at his home church and re-surrendered the call to preach, a call he first surrendered to at age 18. “There is no doubt the timing is confirmation that God has a new season in store, and I’m excited for that. I would ask that you pray for my wife and me as we wait to see what this is actually going to look like in the future, and of course also please pray for the Perrys as they seek the person God would have for their group.”
Libbi says, “If I’ve learned anything in my life, especially in the past 21 months, it’s that God is faithful. We know He has a great plan for both Bryan and for the Perrys, too. We wish him and Bethany all the best and will be watching with everyone else to see what great things God does for and through them. As for The Perrys, we will continue to do our best to share the life-changing gospel of Christ through our music.”

The Perrys to release brand new CD April 8th

Written by SGN Scoops on March 20, 2014 – 11:12 am -

perrys new recordingNASHVILLE, TN (March 20, 2014) – The Perrys, undisputedly one of the most legendary groups in Southern Gospel history, have reached yet another milestone by completing their first recording in the studio with StowTown Records.
When it comes to new music releases this year, The Perrys’ “Into His Presence” CD is the one that fans and industry insiders alike have been waiting to hear, and the project hits retail on April 8, 2014. StowTown co-founders Ernie Haase and Wayne Haun (also the producer of the project) have been just as eager for this day to come, since they celebrated the signing of The Perrys to an exclusive contract on October 28, 2013.
Highly awarded during their 41-year fascinating career, The Perrys’ roster currently includes Libbi Perry Stuffle—the unforgettable alto who carries on the family legacy, along with her husband and beloved bass singer Tracy Stuffle, their son Jared (JK) Stuffle representing a new generation on bass vocals, lead singer David Ragan, and baritone Bryan Walker.
I Can Trust Him” has already been shipped to radio as the debut single from the CD, and now fans can finally hear the rest of the story, since they have been eagerly watching the project unfold through posts by group members on social media. Few artists can claim a more devoted group of listeners, and this fan base has become even more loyal during the past year of praying The Perrys through new challenges and opportunities during the ongoing recovery of Tracy Stuffle after his initial stroke in January, 2013. Libbi Stuffle is quick to say that the eleven songs on the project “no doubt came from the Lord,” and it is her prayer that the songs “uplift, encourage and strengthen His children,” just as they have ministered to her.
To kick off the project’s release to retail and this new chapter for The Perrys, a release party for “Into His Presence” will be held on April 8, 2014, at LifeWay Christian Store in Hendersonville, TN. The festivities begin at 6:30 PM with a live performance by The Perrys, followed by a meet–and–greet, and CD signing opportunity for fans.
Track Listing:
Into His Presence
When He Comes Walking on the Water
 I Can Trust Him
 How Long
Reminders
Lord, I’m Thankful
Sooner Than Later
Three Men on a Mountain
I Owe Him Everything
Just Stand Still
Privilege of Prayer
