James Easter, a long-established name in Bluegrass Gospel Music, has passed away.
James was a Gospel musician, writer and minister. He was a founding member of The Easter Brothers along with his brothers Russell and Edd. For more than six decades they sang Gospel music and recorded at least 22 albums. (Note: We’re confident The Easter Brothers recorded more, this accounting includes the ones in our Gospel music library.)
James was the father of Jeff Easter of Jeff and Sheri Easter. Jeff announced his father’s passing on Facebook with a brief post saying, “A tired and weary soldier has fought the battle true, he now lays down his weapon, his fighting is all through.” Daddy is now resting in the arms of Jesus. Thank you for all of your prayers for our family.”
Funeral arrangements are pending.
