Donald Morris leaves Dixie Melody Boys
The Dixie Melody Boys just announced that lead singer Donald Morris is leaving the group. Morris had been with the group for three years. Tenor and publicist Matt Felts commented:
It is common to hear that a guy comes off the road to be with their family. In this case it is true, Donald has made the tough decision to come off the road to be with his family. He has a beautiful baby girl at home and I’m sure he is looking forward to seeing her more. He will also be focusing on his songwriting and his publishing company. We are proud of Donald. He is one of the finest lead singers we have ever had. We will miss him.
Ed O’Neal added:
The family of former members is very close. Donald will always have a special place in our family. We understand why he is coming off the road but we will miss him. He is a special talent.
Audition plans for a replacement will be announced shortly.
