Changes in store for The Dixie Echoes

DAVID INGRAM

The Dixie Echoes bass singer Jordan Wilson announced this week that he’s leaving the group. Jordan has served with The Dixie Echoes for 4 years.  A familiar face to Dixie Echoes fans will take his place.  Mark Cates, who has previously been a part of the lineup will rejoin The Dixie Echoes.

The group said in a statement this week that Jordan, “…has been a vital part of our family and we will certainly miss him. People have fallen in love with him all over the country, and he is a great Christian young man. We wish Jordan the very best in his future endeavors.”

The Dixie Echoes are planning a new recording very soon with the current lineup, including Trenton Williamson on tenor, Scoot Shelnut on baritone, and SGMA Hall Of Fame member Randy Shelnut, Sr. on lead. The album will include some old Dixie Echoes favorites, and some new songs in the classic Dixie Echoes style.
