One of gospel music’s most popular quartets, The Dixie Melody Boys, will be featured at Jordan’s Chapel Baptist Church, located at 5663 U.S. Highway 13 South in Mount Olive on Sunday, Dec. 8. The quartet will share its unique, four-part harmony during the 11 a.m. service.
Since organizing over five decades ago, The Dixie Melody Boys have experienced much success, including a Grammy nomination and numerous Fan Award nominations from The Singing News Magazine, Southern Gospel Music’s leading fan and trade publication. The group’s numerous hits include such songs as recent releases “I’m Gonna Lift My Praise,” “I’ll Be Living That Way,” “I Won’t Compromise,” “Welcome Home,” “Antioch Church Choir” and “I’m One Of Them.”
The thrill and excitement of performing experienced by each group member night after night is evident at each concert. Their goal of delivering a first-class performance filled with excitement, energy and lots of traditional, southern gospel music are traits that have been instilled in each member by group leader Ed O’Neal. O’Neal is a 50-year gospel music veteran, who was inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 2004.
