BLADENBORO, N.C. â€“ (October 18, 2010) â€“ Multi-award winning quartet the Dove Brothers are excited to announce the addition of Jonathan Price as the groupâ€™s new tenor vocalist.
â€œWe auditioned Jonathan this weekend, and he brought the house down,â€ mentioned McCray Dove, owner/manager/lead vocalist of the popular quartet. â€œHeâ€™s got a different sound than any of our previous tenors, but itâ€™s a good fit, and weâ€™re excited about his future with our group.â€
McCray continued, â€œI was taught a long time ago by a prominent member of the Gospel music community that you donâ€™t go looking for a replacement when someone leaves your group. You have to look for someone who brings something fresh to the group. Jonathan brings that fresh sound to our group, and we know heâ€™s going to do an exciting job in this post.â€
Jonathan has a strong resume within the Southern Gospel music community. Price joins the Dove Brothers after a three-year tenure with the Dixie Melody Boys. Price sang with Paulâ€™s Journey before the Dixie Melody Boys. Jonathan and his wife Vivian currently reside in Farmville, North Carolina.
Price will begin full-time with the Dove Brothers during the month of November. Price replaces long-time vocalist Jerry Martin who left the group to pursue other interests.
The Dove Brothers released their critically acclaimed album Unshakeable earlier this year. The first single from that release â€“ â€œIf I Knew Thenâ€ â€“ just hit #1 on the AbsolutelyGospel.com (formerly SoGospelNews.com) Top 40 Weekly Chart this week. The song is also quickly climbing the Singing News Top 80 chart â€“ coming in at #42 on the upcoming November chart in only its second month of charting.
