Junior’s long-time singing partner, Tim Massey, is getting married and moving on, and Junior shared a few words about the upcoming personnel swap.
“I will miss Timmy but would like to wish him and Patty all the happiness in the world, and success in their future together.
Though I am sorry to see Timmy go, I am excited about the new changes in the band. We have moved Jason ‘Sweet Tater’ Tomlin over to the bass, and hired Chris Davis on mandolin. I think you will be pleased with the new configuration.”
In addition to Junior on guitar and lead vocals, Jason Davis is on banjo, and Billy Hawks on fiddle, with Tomlin on bass and Davis on mandolin. Chris will also take Timmy’s place singing tenor.
