Title: Southmen Reunion - Boaz, AL - April 2, 2010
Description: Every year in April, New Ground takes part in The Southmen reunion In the weeks getting ready for this annual reunion, Mickey kept dropping hints here and there telling everyone that at this year's reunion, you will see New Ground like you've never seen them before. No they weren't having a bass singer guest appearance or anything else like that. Here's Mickey's account of what happened that night:
New Ground was looking a little different on stage while appearing at The Southmen Reunion in Boaz, Alabama. David Owens was unable to make the date due to a family wedding event in which he was singing. So New Ground searched for someone to step in as a "fill-in" for this one night event. What a privilege it was to see STEVE LADD on stage with Dale, Robbie, Mickey and Taylor. Steve is currently involved in a solo career after years of traveling with Gold City and The Anchormen. Steve fell right in the pocket and sang as though he had been singing with the group for a long time. The crowd really liked it when he was featured on the song he made popular while with GC. When he finished "Preach the Word" there was not a person in the building who was not on their feet. It was a great night and rare opportunity for NG fans to see. Thanks Steve!
