Carol Woodard leaves McKameys

As pretty much every major Southern Gospel site notes, the McKameys annouced that Peg McKamey’s sister Carol Woodard will be retiring from the group next month. Woodard sang with the group for the last 26 years.

She will be replaced by Peg’s daughter, Sheryl Farris, who has traveled with the group in the past and written many of their biggest hits.

Due to Carol’s longevity in the group, this is a big story, but since she’s being replaced by another family member, one who has been with the group in the past, it’s not nearly as big of a story as if Carol had been replaced by, say, Debra Talley or Karlye Hopper.
