Vernon Alabama’s Gospel Music Weekend Spotlight Artist- Day Three

Written by scoopsnews on May 19, 2019 – 11:51 am -

From Day Three:

In today’s times, Day Three would be classed as a new artist, however, none of its members are new to the Southern Gospel Music industry. Co-founders Scott Washam, Amy Dunnam and Bo Sullivan have been involved in Gospel music with different ministries dating back to the early ’90’s.
On July 25th, 2014, a new ministry was birthed on the stage of the Alabama Quartet Convention when Amy and Scott sang with Barry Rowland and Shawn Rupert of Barry Rowland and Deliverance. The four of them would sing what has become Day Three’s signature song, “Royal Descendant”.
Scott Washam, Bo Sullivan (both members of Azalea City Quartet) and Amy Dunnam (soloist) begin singing the song at concerts that would follow in the the next  few years.  As time passed, more requests to sing other songs became the new normal.
None of the three realized at the time what God was up to. He was orchestrating a new ministry that would later become affectionately known as the Amy Dunnam Trio. Most people recognize the name Amy Dunnam and Azalea City Quartet, but the three decided that it’s time for a new start; a ‘new seed to plant’.
Refusing to rest on past successes, awards and accolades, the three of them left their comfort zones, and started the process of      rebranding the group with a new identity.
Day Three’s unique blend of music genres, arrangement sytlings and clean vocals have made them one of the regions top ministries in a short amount of time. Day Three is excited to see what God has in store for them.
​    The number three is very significant in the bible. Of course, the obvious correlation is Resurrection Day, but Day Three challenges you to think outside be box. On Day Three God created new ground with new seeds bearing new growth.
Bo, Amy, and Scott want to be used and to serve anywhere God opens a door. “We want to be willing vessels that God can use for His purpose.” Day Three is also the official host group of the Alabama Quartet Convention held each year the last weekend of July in Mobile, AL.  For more information about that event, visit:

Come meet Day Three in Vernon , Alabama at Gospel Music Weekend.

Beyond the Song: Day Three sing “I Fail, But I’m Not A Failure”

Written by Staff on May 11, 2019 – 5:45 pm -

Day Three

Day Three

Jantina de Haan brings us another Beyond the Song look at a tune by Day Three, entitled, “I Fail, But I’m Not A Failure,” written by Rodney Griffin and Joseph Habadank. This song can be found on their recording, “Just Sing.”

Please talk to us about “I Fail, But I’m Not a Failure.” Why did you include this in your latest recording?

This is one of our most requested songs. We chose this because we could each identify with the lyrics. I think we have all come to a place in life where we feel like we’ve failed the Lord. This song is a constant reminder that God is always near, and He still saves, He still picks us up when we are down. He still forgives and most importantly, He forgets. No matter what you’re going through today, you’re not a failure in God’s eyes.

Day Three is from Mobile, Alabama, and is made up of Scott Washam, Amy Dunnam, and Bo Sullivan. They have been singing since 2014 and have made a mark in gospel music for their tight harmony and warm presentation.

We hope you enjoy this song as performed by Day Three. Producer Jonathan Goodwin, Redemption World Records.
Released on June 4, 2017.

Fast Five with Day Three

Written by scoopsnews on April 16, 2018 – 12:53 pm -

Getting To Know Day Three………

1.Tell me about Day Three. How did the group Evolve?

The idea of Day Three was actually birthed on the stage of the 1st Annual Alabama Quartet Convention.  Amy and Scott sang a song with Barry Rowland and Shawn Rupert (both of Barry Rowland and Deliverance).  The scrap iron quartet sang Royal Descendant. Barry Rowland gave Amy and I the track that night. Scott and Amy were asked to sing the song  at events that would follow so they borrowed Bo Sullivan. Bo and Scott both sang with Azalea City Quartet (owned by Scott Washam) and Amy had a solo ministry.  Both ministries worked several dates together throughout the year, so it was easy for us to sing together. The Name Day Three actually comes from the book of Genesis.   On the third day, god prepared the soil to take new seeds to bring forth new growth and vegetation. That’s what our ministry is founded on, planting seeds.

2. I hear you have had some radio charting success in the Singing News and Scoops Magazine for the last few months.  Tell me about the song and why you chose it?

 We recently released a brand new song penned by Rodney Griffin and Joseph Habedank , ‘Not A Failure’.   We are excited to see what this song is going to do in the hearts of the listeners. We just found out it is #70 on the Singing News Chart this month! To God Be The Glory.

3.Tell me about the group members and what part they sing?

Scott Washam – Mobile, AL – Lead and Keyboads,  Enjoys playing tennis and golf. Also enjoys spending time with family, usually around the game table.  He also handles the booking for the group, website and most of the social media.

Amy Dunnam – Mobile, AL – Alto;  Is a collector of old vinyl records.  The thing that would shock you the most about Amy is that she is a certified mechanic.  She is also responsible for social media for the group and is a director for the Alabama Quartet Convention.

Bo Sullivan – Brookhaven, MS – Baritone;  Has his own lawn business. He also keeps the group in check when we have the time to practice a little.  He hears parts better than the other two put together.

4. What are some of the goals for Day Three for 2018?

We actually just talked about this a few weeks ago.  You know, we’ve only been together for 13 months. We’ve had a top 50 in Singing News, Top 40 in Scoops charts and top 50 in Christian Voice charts but we are just crazy enough to believe that God has even more in store for Day Three this year.  We want to go places we’ve never been and we want to see lives changed for the better. We want folks to know that GOD LOVES THEM RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE!

5. IF someone wanted to book Day Three for an event or a church service, give us your information.

Alabama Quartet Convention welcomes Perrys, Jordan Family Band, more

Written by Staff on August 14, 2017 – 5:29 pm -

Perrys at Alabama Quartet Convention

The Perrys at the Alabama Quartet Convention

Webster defines a convention as ‘an assembly of persons, met for a common purpose.’ That’s what the Alabama Quartet Convention is all about, a common purpose to praise God. The fourth annual ALQC was held July 27 –  29, 2017 at the Forest Hill Church of God in Mobile, AL.  


Over thirty national, regional and local artists assembled together to sing songs of encouragement, salvation and to uplift the body of Christ. The Perrys, the Jordan Family Band, New Ground, Day Three, Answered Prayer, Barry Rowland and Deliverance, Ricky Atkinson and Compassion, plus many others all crossed the platform to present the best in Southern Gospel Music.

Co-founders Scott Washam and Amy Dunnam began this journey four years ago with a simple concept: How do we want to be treated as an artist when we attend a music convention, and, if we were fans, what would we want to hear and see? This idea has helped the two achieve one of the most sought after conventions by artists in the nation.  


This year’s theme was ‘Sowing Seeds – One Testimony At A Time.’ Over the three day event, many seeds were being sown, including the ALQC giving back to each artist. On Saturday morning, the ALQC hosted an artist-only prayer breakfast event. This year’s guest speaker was Jonathan Goodwin of Redemption World Records. His message followed along with the theme and taught that we sow

Ambassador Award

seeds in three ways; our time, our talent and our treasure. What a great message it was.


Washam said in an earlier statement, “Every year, the event gets bigger and better. But this year was a different kind of better. There was such a feeling of unity and family. We brought in 12 new groups this year, and our fans and ALQC ‘seasoned’ artists fell in love with them.”  Some of the new groups included: The singing Epps Family from Lincolnton, Georgia; Master Peace Quartet from Dalton, Georgia; The Connell’s from Jacksonville, Alab., Heart’s Song from Shannon, N. C., and many more. Amy Dunnam said, “We are so honored that these groups would want to come spend their weekend with us. It’s humbling.”  


On Thursday night, the Perrys really brought their best. There was such a sweet anointing in the house that the atmosphere was thick.  Other crowd favorites included The Jordan Family Band, Day Three and New Ground. Mickey Bell, DJ for the Dixie Gospel Caravan in Birmingham, Alab.,

kept the crowd on their heels with laughter, encouragement and sometimes tears.  


Both Amy and Scott agreed that for them the most special moment of this year’s ALQC was when all 30 artists gathered in the altar around Exodus to pray for Mike Watson’s complete healing.  Mike has been fighting cancer and had finished his last treatment. Everyone looks forward to him being on the road again soon.


If you’ve never been to an Alabama Quartet Convention, Scott Washam asks,
