Phillip Hughes Departing From The Anchormen

Chapel Valley Recording Artist The Anchormen are announcing today that Lead Vocalist Phillip Hughes is resigning from the quartet.

Anchormen owner Tim Bullins states that “We have accepted Phillip’s resignation and although we are disappointed when any member of our group has to leave. However, with the recommendation of his physicians, Phillip feels this would be the better way to care for his health being a diabetic.”

Bullins also states, “As a diabetic myself i totally understand his position. He and I have had numerous conversations about the lifestyle that comes with living on the road and trying to balance all of that with the health conditions. Under the circumstances we know this is a decision that had to be made.

Phillip has been a vital part of the Anchormen through the years with his two different stints with the group. We certainly wish him, his wife Starla, and their children Ross and Ryan God’s abundant blessings to be with them. Phillip will remain with the quartet until a replacement is found.

Those interested in applying for the Lead position, are asked to send a resume and video along with contact information to: anchormenauditions@gmail.com

Phillip Hughes Joins The Anchormen

Phillip Hughes

Phillip Hughes who has occupied the tenor vocal position for the last 5 years with the Harvesters Quartet has resigned his position with the quartet. Phillip will be filling the lead vocalist position once again with the ever popular Anchormen of Asheboro North Carolina. Phillip was a vital member of The Anchormen when he joined the group in 1997 and remained for four years at the lead position. Hughes states “I have appreciated the time that I have spent with the Harvesters. I have grown in so many ways during my five years with Danny and the guys. God began dealing with my heart a few months back that He was opening a new opportunity and while the Harvesters were taking some time off, I was asked to come fill in with The Anchormen. I knew from that moment that God had arranged for me to return to the Anchormen on a full time basis. I am seeing great things occurring as The ministry of the Anchormen continues in this new chapter”.

Phillip replaces the departing lead vocalist Jamie Caldwell. Jamie had recently notified The Anchormen that he had accepted a Pastorate of a thriving church in Georgia. Danny Parker owner of the Harvesters says “Phillip has been a wonderful asset to the quartet. His vocal talents, arranging abilities, stage presence and sound system knowledge will be greatly missed. While he will be missed with The Harvesters Quartet, we would like to wish him much success with his future endeavors.” The Harvesters are currently in the process of filing the vacated tenor position and will be making that announcement in the near future.

Hughes joins Tenor Derrick Boyd, Baritone Terry Carter and Bass Will Lane and this combination brings a fresh quartet dynamic with the new lineup. Anchormen owner Tim Bullins states “I am delighted to make this announcement with the addition of Phillip making his return to the Anchormen. Philip was outstanding when he joined us the first time in 1997 but since then with his years singing with The Melody Masters, The Kingsmen and the Harvesters he is even more outstanding now. I am looking forward to all of the areas that we travel to, in fans hearing the new Anchormen lineup.”

Will Lane What Is Your Favorite Christmas Tradition?

My favorite tradition is the reading of the Christmas story of birth of Jesus from the bible with the whole family. This is the real Christmas story and it’s always a great time when we share this with one another.

When I was younger, we would always put up a real Christmas tree. I love the smell of a real tree. Another memory is that my mom and dad always let me open one present on Christmas Eve.Mom would always make cookies to leave out for Santa. Now that I’m older I enjoy decorating my house for Christmas especially on the outside with our life size sleigh and Santa Claus.
