South Carolina’s King James 1611 Boys will release their 8th album of bluegrass Gospel, This Don’t Feel Like Home, later this month on the Son Sound label.
They have chosen a mix of ten Gospel favorites and three band originals. The title track is a composition from banjo player David Mabry, who also sings lead for the group. Other members include Randy Spencer on guitar, Travis Tucker on reso-guitar, Jacob Jackson on mandolin, and Cole Spencer on bass. Spencer and Tucker assist with vocals, as does sixth man Jeff Dover.
Orders for the new CD can be placed now from the King James 1611 Boys web site.
Spencer tells us that they have a lot planned for 2014, which will mark their 20th year performing together. A 20 year CD with a collection of their favorite songs over that period, and a Christmas album are in the works.
