Nick Trammell Joins Mark Trammell Quartet

Clayton and Scott Inman. Randy and Scoot Shelnut. Rick and David Fair. Tim and Daniel Riley. Add one more father/son combo to the list. It was announced last night via Facebook that Nick and Jessica Trammell are departing Jessica’s family group, The Browns. The couple recently celebrated the birth of their first child, and Jessica is coming off the road to take care of baby Tessa. Nick Trammell is joining his father’s quartet as lead singer replacing Dustin Sweatman, who has accepted a job as the Renaissance Program Director of Choirs at Bethel University here in West Tennessee. These changes will all take place after NQC, though the new lineup will debut a new recording during the convention.
In this instance, I’m very much interested in the sound of the group. The other father/son duos mentioned above all have fairly distinctive sounding voices. Nick Trammell has a voice and style that is very close to his father’s, especially when compared to his father’s voice at the same age. It will almost sound like Mark is singing with his younger self! The press release from Mark, available here, also hints at the group hiring a full time pianist after NQC.
Best wishes to Dustin in his new duties, and to Nick and Jessica as they have welcomed a new baby at home, and to Nick as he stands beside his father to share the good news of the gospel!
