“25 Days of Sharing”- Scoot Shelnut

Written by scoopsnews on December 17, 2018 – 5:17 am -

Scoot Shelnut

December is a time for sharing. At Christmas, we (Christians) celebrate The Greatest Gift of All, Jesus Christ.

Over the next few weeks we will be talking with many industry leaders, artists, pastors, promoters, etc. and asking them questions.  

 

Question #17  goes to Randy Shelnut, Jr (aka Scoot)

Randy,

You have the same name as your Dad, but most people call you”Scoot.” Where on earth did that name come from?

“25 Days Of Sharing”- Stephen Adair, Dixie Echoes

Written by scoopsnews on December 6, 2018 – 5:25 am -

 

December is a time for sharing. At Christmas, we (Christians) celebrate The Greatest Gift of All, Jesus Christ.

Over the next few weeks we will be talking with many industry leaders, artists, pastors, promoters, etc. and asking them questions.  They will “share” the answer to the question in 10 seconds or less. We are asking for their best advice on many different topics.

 

Question # 6 goes to Stephen Adair, tenor singer for the Dixie Echoes.

Stephen, you left your home in Indiana to fulfil a dream and sing with The Dixie Echoes.

What advice could you give a young gospel singer that wants to one  day live their dream and sing with a gospel quartet?

The Dixie Echoes are happy to announce that we have filled the positions of bass, tenor and pianist

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on August 29, 2012 – 9:21 am -

Ben Hart

.

Jordan James will be filling the bass slot. He is from Verda, LA. and has attended, and taught at the Stamps School of Music. Jordan has a dynamic voice that has drawn comparisons to the great George Younce.

Craig Thomas will be singing the tenor part. He is from DeFuniak Springs, FL. and has one of the smoothest tenor voices you will ever hear. His smile and personality has already won the hearts of Dixie Echoes fans everywhere.

Ben Hart will be the new pianist for the group. Ben comes to us from Peoria, Ill. and is one of the most talented young musicians in gospel music. Ben also plays the guitar, harmonica, bass guitar, and quite a few other instruments.

Each of these man have felt the calling on their lives to share the gospel, and we are very thankful that God has chosen to place them with the Dixie Echoes.

Be sure to check dixieechoes.com for our schedule, and come meet Jordan, Craig, and Ben next time we’re in your area.

God Bless,

Randy Shelnut Jr.
