In 1997, De Marcus called Le Vox, and convinced him to come to Nashville and provide some harmonies on Michael English's album Gospel, which he was producing.They engineered the album together, and became English's back-up band.The group covered the hit Shenandoah single The Church on Cumberland Road that night.To the group's recollection, a bond was formed instantly.Singer Mila Mason recommended the group to record producers Mark Bright and Marty Williams, who played Lyric Street Records A&R Doug Howard a three-song demo and Howard thought they were "just incredible." After he'd heard the demos, the band went into the Lyric Street offices the next day, sat down with acoustic guitars, and played a couple of songs.According to Howard in an interview with Hit Quarters: "The vocals and harmonies, it was all there—I was just blown away.
