Gold City, Southern Gospel music╒s premier male quartet, is proud to announce the addition of Aaron McCune to the group. Aaron McCune will be filling the bass vocalist position in the group left vacant by Bill Lawrence earlier this year.
At the age of 25, Aaron McCune already has a strong resume within Southern Gospel music. McCune has been singing and recording with Palmetto State Quartet since September of 2003, and he was a long time member of the Anchormen previous to joining Palmetto State Quartet. McCune started singing bass at the age of 14 and has also previously sang with the Journeymen and the Nobelmen Quartet.
╥We are very excited about Aaron joining Gold City,╙ mentioned Daniel Riley, baritone and manager for Gold City. ╥We see large amounts of potential in Aaron and firmly believe that he will go down in history as one of Southern Gospel╒s strongest bass singers.╙
Aaron McCune stated, ╥I am so enthusiastic about joining such an elite and outstanding group as Gold City. My time with Palmetto State was invaluable to me as a singer and Christian, and I can not thank them enough for affording me the opportunity of singing with such a great group of guys. Now, I am excited to see what God has in store for me as a part of Gold City.╙
Founder and now retired member of Gold City, Tim Riley, has been filling in for Gold City since Lawrence╒s departure this past March. McCune will officially hit the road with Gold City starting in early July.
╥Words cannot express how grateful I am to my father for coming out of retirement for these past couple of months and helping us out,╙ remarked Daniel Riley. ╥He was very patient with us while we took our time in finding the right fit for the group. We couldn╒t thank him enough.╙
Aaron will be joining Gold City on the group╒s new recording due out later this year. It will be the first recording for the group since signing with New Haven Records last year. The new album is being produced by industry leaders Michael Sykes and Michael English, and it promises to be a career recording for the group.
