The Dixie Melody Boys on Tour

Celebrating 50 years in 2012

Dixie Melody Boys

Southern Gospel legends and SGM Fan Awards 2012 "Favorite Male Quartet," The Dixie Melody Boys, are celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year and they're on the road all summer, sharing the milestone with fans. During their 30+ performances in cities from Pennsylvania to Texas, they'll be singing songs from their latest release, The Call Is Still The Same, including the hit single, "Jesus In My Boat."

With the recent departure of lead singer Donald Morris, this summer, the group's manager (and Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame member), Ed O'Neal, will be searching for a replacement. He is currently accepting demos from vocalists and will narrow down the auditions to a few men. Those selected will then travel with the group to see how well they fit. The plan is to announce the new member on the main stage at this year's National Quartet Convention. To submit a demo for consideration, contact O'Neal by emailing dixiemelodyboys@yahoo.com.
