Dixie Melody Boys

Beginning in 1961, the Dixie Melody Boys have become a legendary name in Gospel Music. They have achieved tremendous success over the years. They have had over twenty top 40 hits, eight top 10 hits and several number one hits. Their songs such as Antioch Church Choir, He Came Back, Cross To The Other Side Of Jordan and Good Ole Boys have become classics in Gospel music. They have been nominated for countless Singing News awards, Southern Gospel's premier fan voted award, and have been nominated multiple times for a Grammy award. Over the years they have made numerous television appearances such as the Gaither Homecoming series, the Ralph Emery Show and many others. Given the name "the Ed O'Neal University", the Dixie Melody Boys have given many of Gospel musics leading names their start including Ernie Haase, McCray Dove, Rodney Griffen, Harold Reed, Devin McGlamery, Derrick Selph, Tony Brown and many others.

In 2004, Ed O'Neal was inducted into the Southern Gospel Hall Of Fame. Ed has also been honored with Southern Gospels highest honor, the Marvin Norcross Award. Ed is joined on stage by what has been described by industry insiders as "One of the best groups he has assembled". Lead singer Donald Morris has emerged as one of Gospel musics best new songwriters with several songs cut by top groups such as the Inspirations. Baritone Steven Cooper has become a favorite across the country with his rich voice and energetic stage presence. Tenor, Matt Felts has quickly become one of Gospel musics favorite tenors with his powerful tenor voice and extraordinary high range.

In 2011, the Dixie Melody Boys will celebrate their 50th Anniversary. While the group has a rich heritage behind them, they continue to press forward with new exciting music. The group will be back in the studio spring of 2011 working on a major release project. They also appear weekly on their television show, Great American Gospel, that is aired five days a week in over 200 countries.
On January 1, 2011, the Dixie Melody Boys were informed that they are in the 2011 class of inductees for the Christian Music Hall Of Fame.
