SGM Radio Blog’s Top Ten: Men of Music
We are thrilled to share with you these mini-interviews with some great Southern Gospel artists! Check back often to see who is next on the SGM Radio Blog's Top Ten!
Men of Music…by Chris Walton
The Men of Music are from Jackson, Mississippi and consist of members Chris Walton (Tenor) of Calera Alabama, Rodney Tyson (Lead) of Iuka Mississippi and Greg Colburn (Baritone) of Jackson Mississippi. The Men of Music started in 1996 and came off the road in 2007. Rodney had sung with The Men of Music in the early 2000’s and called Greg and Chris when he found out the group was looking for a lead. We did our first date in September of 2009 and have been going full time ever since. God is truly blessing this ministry. Our First Recording should be out this summer.
