For more than 50 years, Ed Oâ€™Neal and the Dixie Melody Boys have been legendary within Southern Gospel for their ability to consistently communicate with their audience regardless of the times or seasons. Ed Oâ€™Neal has always been able to assemble a group that works hard at presenting old songs and new with finesse and polish. One of newest members of this quartet is Aaron Dishman, baritone and pianist, who is quickly becoming a favorite with the young Dixie Melody Boys fans.
SGM Radio recently caught up with Aaron and invited him to respond to our Fast Five questions.Â
