Dustin Sweatman, who is the lead singer for the Mark Trammell Quartet, has accepted the Renaissance Program Director of Choirs position at Bethel University in McKenzie, Tenn. He will remain with the quartet playing piano and singing through mid-September. He will start at Bethel after National Quartet Convention. Dustin has been the lead singer of the group since 2006.
Nick Trammell will be stepping in as lead singer. Nick has said that he is "excited to fulfill a dream of standing beside his father in Christian work." Mark is also pleased to have his son join him in his ministry.
Pat Barker, Eric Phillips and Mark and Nick Trammell plan to debut a new recording at this year's National Quartet Convention.
Wish the best for all those involved in both the Browns and the Mark Trammell Quartet! I think it's great that Jessica has decided to come off the road to stay at home with their daughter. She and Dustin will both be missed on the southern gospel music scene. But I look forward to see what's to come for both the Browns and the Mark Trammell Quartet!
