Matt Felts To Leave Dixie Melody Boys

From Matt Felts

For the last four years I’ve had the honor of sharing the stage with Ed O’Neal and the Dixie Melody Boys. I’ve been so blessed to be embraced by their wonderful friends and fans all across the country. This season has seen some great times for the group including the 50th Anniversary Reunion, numerous awards and many great concerts. When I joined I didn’t fully understand what it meant to be a member of the “Ed O’Neal University”. It’s more than just a group. It’s being part of a fraternity that you’re always a part of. As many of you know, I fly from Nashville to North Carolina every week to meet the guys. Like many things the cost of flights have gone up drastically over the last couple years. This coupled with God’s leading in a new path have brought me to announce my departure from the Dixie Melody Boys. I want to thank Ed for an incredible four years. I will never forget the songs, the miles and the many laughs. Some may say I’m graduating but you never truly leave the Dixie Melody Boys. It a family you’re always a part of. There will be an announcement soon about the new doors God has opened but for now I just wanted to thank all of you and Ed.

(Ft. Oglethorpe, GA) Phenomenal Bass singer Alan Brewster of Southern Sound Quartet received the high honor of being inducted as an individual into the Tri-State Gospel Music Hall of Fame in Ft. Oglethorpe, GA. This Georgia native is known for his motivation in business, and his low voice that every great quartet needs.

Southern Sound Lead singer and Manager, Ben Harris said, “Although Alan remained a board member of the group during his three year absence, he was of course not a regular touring member during those years. We have had many promoters, pastors and friends ask about Alan, and now he is back and we could not be more pleased. Alan brings far more than his rich and talented voice. He also brings a wealth of business background, a firm commitment to Christ, and a friendly demeanor that everyone loves.”

Tri-State Gospel Music Hall of Fame was founded in 2005. It was formed to recognize and remember the efforts of those individuals whom have given to the advancement and support of Gospel Music in the Southeast Tennessee, Northwest Georgia, and Northeast Alabama, locally known as the Tri-state area.

There were 25 new inductees this year, including nationally known Jack Clark and Elmer Cole.

This years ceremony was held at Parkway Baptist Temple, Fort Oglethorpe, GA on August the 2nd.

Alan stated “I started singing bass in a young people’s church quartet at the age of 15. Since then I have sung with the Royal Heirs Quartet of Lafayette, GA, Kings Messengers Quartet of Lafayette, GA, Happy Harmony Quartet of Chattanooga, TN, Called Out Quartet of Dalton, GA, Hymnsmen Quartet of Cleveland, TN and Southern Sound Quartet of Nashville, TN. I joined Southern Sound in April of 2007 and stayed til October of 2010. After much thought and prayer I rejoined the group in August 2013.

My favorite memory would have to be my first performance on the main-stage of the National Quartet Convention with Southern Sound.”
