It appears that Pine Mountain Railroad has made a number of personnel changes, with one rebounding into Nothin’ Fancy.
Mandolinist Cody Shuler has taken over management of PMR, and is bringing in some new faces. We understand that guitarist Jerry Butler is gone, and banjo player Kipper Stitt will be leaving just after IBMA week.
Coming in to play banjo will be Eli Johnston, who until just last week was playing bass with Nothin’ Fancy. His leaving brought about a happy reunion for Nothin’ Fancy fans, as original bassist Tony Shorter has decided to return to traveling full time with the band.
I’m sure that we can pick up some more details later today when folks start schlepping down into the exhibit area.
