Jeff Parker
Jeff Parker
Jeff is a proud Kentucky native who learned to play guitar from his father, Vester, when he was just 6 years old. After tackling the guitar, he moved on to other instruments, until at age 12 he was inspired by Harold Russell of the Russell Brothers to play mandolin. Soon after, Jeff joined his dad and other family members, playing at area churches and radio stations, and they became known as the Sounds of Gospel.

When he was 19, Jeff left the Sounds of Gospel and joined Train 45, The Bluegrass Drifters, and other acts. He then became a member of Renfro Valley Entertainment Center, where he played mandolin, guitar, banjo and fiddle and sang harmony vocals in the staff band from 1986 to 1994.

He also performed with The Parker Brothers, a featured bluegrass act at Renfro Valley. They were named Best Bluegrass Band at Renfro in 1992. In 1994 Jeff was awarded Best Harmony Singer, and in 1991 he was named Best Instrumentalist. After leaving Renfro Valley, Jeff spent five years in the group Wilderness Trail, which he formed with his brother Mike.

In October 2001 Jeff joined The Lonesome River Band as mandolin player and tenor singer. He spent the next five years with LRB and recorded three albums with them.

Jeff has recorded two solo albums. The latest, Go Parker! released in 2012 and Two Roads to Travel, both on Lonesome Day Records. Jeff has performed or recorded with other acts including Dale Ann Bradley, Steve Gulley, Rick Bartley, Aaron McDaris, Wildfire, David Marshall, Jason Davis, Linda Lay, Larry Sparks, Tony Rice and the late Larry Rice. He joined Dailey & Vincent in January 2007.

Christian Davis
Christian began to sing at age three, and throughout his childhood he learned to play various instruments. He began singing professionally in 1998  while attending Liberty University, as bass vocalist with The Sounds of Liberty, traveling to many churches and venues around the country.

Later that year Dr. Jerry Falwell, with Christian's persuasion, formed the Old Time Gospel Hour Quartet, which Christian began as the original bass singer. He has since sung with other quartets such as the Old Friends Quartet (while George Younce was ill), Christian Brothers Quartet and Mercy's Mark. In addition to his music career, Christian served as the Assistant Director of Recruiting for Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth,
Texas in 2006. Christian and his wife, Sophia, are the proud parents of Shelby, Richard and Anneliese.


B.J. Cherryholmes
B.J. Cherryholmes began playing with his family at age 11. Due to a family tragedy in 1999, B.J., his brother, two sisters, and mom and dad started a family jam as a way to get closer as a family. Little did they know that this would spark and eventually skyrocket to a highly successful 12 year  musical career as the internationally touring band " Cherryholmes ". B.J. would play an intricate part in the band's five Grammy nominations, composing both "Sumatra" and "Tattoo of A Smudge" that were nominees for Country Instrumental Performance of The Year. He also contributed to the winning
of one and the nomination of two IBMA Entertainers of the Year awards, and several other nominations for organizations like Dove, SPBGMA, and GMA.

Being with one of Bluegrass' and acoustic music's more successful bands in recent years, B.J. has become a proficient multi-instrumentalist and musical visionary. Having been an important part of not only the tracking, but also the producing of Cherryholmes' last two Skaggs Family Records releases,

He has continued to grow in both musical and technical understanding of the music industry.
In July of 2011, B.J. joined the Bluegrass super duo of Dailey and Vincent, where his debut was at the Ryman Auditorium for Bluegrass Nights At The Ryman. Since then, he has been a full-time member of the group, touring actively across the U.S., as well as around the world, including appearances with the group on the Grand Old Opry and other high profile venues and tv shows. Performing with this group has contributed to his  overall musical growth, and continues to present him with more opportunities to sharpen and display his skills.

Jessie Baker
Born in Martinsville, IN on February 7th 1991. His mother recognized at an early age that Baker was fascinated by music and at age 10 his grandmother bought him a pawnshop guitar for Christmas. While learning to play guitar a local musician came over and introduced the young  picker to the sound of a banjo. After hearing the banjo he was hooked.

Jessie started out on the road on his sixteenth birthday with Texas-based group Karl Shiflett and the Big County Show. After staying with Shiflett's group for a year and half, Baker moved on to play banjo with Wildfire. Shortly after his stint with Wildfire, Jessie moved to Michael Cleveland's band Flamekeeper in September of 2009. He went on to win 3 IBMA awards with the group including Instrumental Group and Instrumental Recorded  Perfomance of the Year.

In February of 2011 Jessie moved on to be a part of the award-winning group Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver where he played on the making of two albums. Jessie joined Dailey & Vincent in April 2012.

Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out

Music In The Mountains Bluegrass Festival, Summersville, WV
June 25,26,27 & 28th

Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out take the stage on Wednesday, June 25 at 2:35 pm
and 7:30 pm.  Don't miss this performance

posted by Betty Dotson-Lewis (WV Writer)

Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out (Formerly known as IIIrd Tyme Out) is abluegrass band formed in 1991
in Cumming, Georgia. Consisting of Russell Moore (lead vocals and guitar), Steve Dilling (vocals and banjo),
Justen Haynes (vocals and fiddle), Wayne Benson (vocals and mandolin) and Edgar Loudermilk (vocals and bass),
the band has released thirteen albums and two greatest hits collections since 1991. A regular on bluegrass radio,
their works have earned them many individual and group IBMA and SPBGMA award nominations including the
prestigious IBMA Vocal Group of the Year award which they've won numerous times.

About the Band
Led by the International Bluegrass Music Association's (IBMA) 5-time "Male Vocalist Of The Year", Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme
Out has walked away with IBMA's "Vocal Group Of The Year" award 7 consecutive years.All in all, the band has garnered over
50 industry awards since their inception in 1991. Their a cappella renditions of many songs can rarely be matched and their superb
instrumentation provides even more quality sound to their rich vocal blend featuring one of the most respected lead vocalists of all time.
All this along witha heavy touring schedule, including many performances on the Grand Ole Opry as well as GAC and RFD channel
programs, over 14 recordings to date, and a desire to present their fans with the best music possible, makes this "supergroup" one of
bluegrass music's most recognized and in-demand bands in the genre's history.

In November 2013, banjo player Steve Dilling and bass player Edgar Loudermilk announced their intentions to leave IIIrd Tyme Out.
 Steve Dilling cited health reasons as his reason for leaving the band while Edgar Loudermilk decided to capitalize on a songwriting
and solo CD push. As of 11-26-13, replacements have not been named though there have been auditions. [1]
