Louisville, KY – The National Quartet Convention Board of Directors has announced the addition of two new board members. Gospel music veterans Mark Trammell and Jim Brady have been named as the most recent additions to the Board. “These two men have years of experience in the Southern Gospel Music genre, and we are excited that they will bring valuable insight to the Board and the goals we have for future events,” states Clarke Beasley, Executive Vice President of the NQC.
Trammell brings nearly four decades of experience to the Board, having performed with such popular groups as The Kingsmen, The Cathedrals, Gold City and Greater Vision before launching his own group, The Mark Trammell Trio, which later evolved to the Mark Trammell Quartet. Recognized for his rich baritone vocals, Trammell is also a dynamic speaker and evangelist.
Brady has become recognized as one of Gospel music’s most prolific songwriters, having written more than 100 songs, recorded by the most popular groups and soloists. Over the years, he has won the hearts of industry members and fans alike with his smooth vocal ability and warm personality. Jim first began singing with his musical family at the tender age of five and has become one Gospel music’s most loved vocalist. After traveling with The Shulers for nearly a decade, he  joined the very successful Booth Brothers in 2002.
Trammell and Brady will prove to be essential as final preparations are being made for the 55th Annual National Quartet Convention, which kicks off  September 9-15, 2012 in Louisville at the Kentucky Fair & Expo Center. Visit www.nqconline.com, as a complete schedule of events
