Jim And Melissa Brady (2015-Present)
Long-time Booth Brothers baritone Jim Brady left that group in 2015 to form a group with his wife Melissa Brady. (Jim and Melissa had performed previously with Melissa's family, The Shulers. The couple had also recorded together during Jim's tenure with the Booth Brothers.)
They were initially joined by Tim Parton and billed as the Jim Brady Trio. Parton departed after a year and Layke Jones replaced him. In early 2019, Jones departed and rather than remain a trio, Jim and Melissa chose to reformat as a duet billed as Jim And Melissa Brady.
