Nashville, TNÂ (July 24, 2018)Â TheÂ Old Time Preachers QuartetÂ have announced thatÂ Lee McNeillÂ has resigned as lead singer of the group but will remain with them throughout 2018 as they search for a new member.
â€œLee took a great church in Mechanicsville, VA last year. As it should, this is taking all of his time and effort. Early this year Lee told me he’d give the quartet until the end of the year to find another lead singer. He simply couldn’t do it all.Adam BordenÂ has been singing the majority of the dates that Lee couldn’t make this year. And, by the way, Adam has been knocking it out of the park and will continue to travel with us on the weekends. Â We are currently praying and looking for the right man to join the group. This is a challenging position to fill. All of the members maintain their own personal preaching and singing schedules, plus, Tim and I also have businesses. We appreciate your prayers as we seek Godâ€™s will for our group. Oh, and allow me to add this, being given a 12 month notice is unheard of. This speaks to Lee’s character. We can’t thank him enough for giving us such a long notice! We wish he could stay until the horn blows, but we totally get it. We will miss his talent. We will miss his spirit. And I “think” we’ll miss his stunts! LEE MCNEILL IS CRAZY,â€ statedÂ Les Butler.
Lee McNeilÂ said, â€œIâ€™m gonna miss singing with these guys. Some of the greatest men youâ€™ll ever meet are a part of the Old Time Preachers Quartet. Love you guys.â€
TheÂ Old Time Preachers QuartetÂ have quickly emerged as one of Gospelâ€™s top quartets, claiming multiple Singing New Top 20 hits and appearing at major events such asÂ Dollywood, National Quartet Convention,Â Bluegate Theaterand others.
