Back in September 2014,  the Kingdom Heirs’ baritone singer resigned from the group. Andy Stringfield, pianist for the group, started filling both positions –

singing and playing – during the remainder of the season at Dollywood. Traveling during their off season, the group began the search for a new baritone. The double duty for Andy was a great load for one person to do.

The Kingdom Heirs auditioned around 60 men who had applied for the position.  With their touring season ending, they narrowed the search down to three men.
With the opening of Dollywood’s 30th year and Kingdom Heirs’ 30th year singing at the park, they were scheduled for weekend shows

during the month of April, which was Dollywood’s International Festival. To make the final decision for the baritone position they brought each of the selected men to sing on four shows per weekend.

Bryan Walker, known for being a contestant on the TV series American Idol and as a member of The Perrys, was the first one to appear on stage with The Kingdom Heirs. Following Bryan came Loren Harris, another of the Perrys’ former members.  The third and final singer to audition, was Brian Alvey, who is known through the music industry.  He sang with Tribute Quartet and is married to

Lauren Talley.

You can visit the Kingdom Heirs’ website and find photos and video clips of these three on stage with The Kingdom Heirs.
Who will be the new baritone for the Kingdom Heirs? Whomever it is will be the singer that God lays on the heart of the men to select.  Everyone has a voice in the selection, and any one of these three vocalists will be a great choice for the position.

Harper Agency Adds Talleys To Artist Roster

Written by SGN Scoops on October 14, 2011 – 4:38 am -

Goodlettsville, TN – One of Christian music’s leading booking agencies, The Harper Agency, has announced the signing of popular vocal group, The Talleys (pictured in attached jpg), to their talent roster. The announcement comes on the heels of yet another major change for The Talleys when they transitioned from a trio to a quartet in September with the addition of  Brian Alvey. Alvey, who married multi-award winning group member, Lauren Talley, in June, made his official debut on stage with the family Labor Day weekend in Gatlinburg, TN. “Brian not only brings an impressive vocal ability to the group,” group manager, Roger Talley stated, “but he adds a new excitement to the stage with his proficiency as a multi-talented musician. We love his testimony and his heart for ministry.”

The East Tennessee based musical family, consisting of the mother/father team of Roger and Debra Talley, as well as daughter, Lauren and now son-in-law, Brian, has enjoyed numerous honors and accolades over the years, including 10 Number one radio singles, making them one of Christian music’s most beloved families.

The Harper Agency is pleased to add The Talleys to their roster of fine artists, wich also includes numerous notable family groups.  “Being a family business,” Harper Agency representative, Jeff Harper comments, “we understand the dynamics of working together to achieve a common goal.  The Talleys, with their unique sound, are a perfect example of what happens when family blends music and ministry harmoniously.” 

Jeff’s brother, Ed Harper shared those sentiments.“I’ve known Roger and Debra for nearly 30 years, and of course, I love and admire Lauren’s exceptional vocal ability. We are honored to have the opportunity to work with and represent such an outstanding family. We look forward to being a part of their future for many years.”

Joining The Harper Agency marks a major change for the popular group, ending their long-time association with Fay Shedd and the Artist Direction Agency, who first began working with the senior Talleys in the early 1980s. “We would like to express our appreciation to Fay Shedd for the many years of hard work and friendship, but we are excited about the opportunity to work with the Harper Agency. We have long respected Ed and Jeff Harper, and we look forward to a new season of ministry. We encourage and invite all of our promoter and pastor friends across the country to contact the Harper Agency to reserve your place on the Talleys’ schedule.”

The Harper Agency may be reached by calling 615-851-4500 or visiting . The Agency is currently scheduling 2012 dates for The Talleys.
