When the Gaither Vocal Band said goodbye to Mark Lowry and Michael English shortly before Thanksgiving, everyone wondered who would take their spots in the band. For one position, the wait is over!
It was just announced that Adam Crabb (from The Crabb Family) has joined the award-winning group.
In a press release, Bill Gaither said, "For decades now, we have reinvented the Gaither Vocal Band again and again, and in the process we have found some of the most incredible male singers and wonderful human beings on the planet. Adam is a very exciting addition to this 30-year legacy of excellence."
As to who the fifth member will be, Bill remained quiet, only saying, "We are taking our time and trying out some wonderful individuals during the next few weeks. You will see some very gifted guest artists out on the tour with us as we seek the perfect fit. Trust me. You do not want to miss the chance to see what is about to happen as we enter this new season."
Fans will have plenty of opportunities to hear Adam, the special guests and the rest of the Gaither Vocal Band in the coming months.
