Blake JohnsonLast year, Blake Johnson became seriously ill with a blood disease that landed him in the hospital for an extended stay of 8 weeks in Duke University Hospital. This forced him to be off the road and the band continued with a replacement. The band is happy to report that Blake is well and back performing in his role. Russell Moore wrote, "We are so thankful to have Blake Johnson back on the road with us! He's doing wonderful, recovering well, and singing and playing better than ever! We already performed our first show of the new year at a place that is very dear to our hearts, Galax, VA."

Three bluegrass artists, on board the Carnival Dream cruise ship for the recent First Quality Bluegrass Cruise, were featured as part of the Carnival Legends Show. This Las Vegas style show paid tribute to several musical legends with Tim Graves of the Farm Hands playing the part of Elvis Presley, Blake Johnson of the James King Band portraying James Brown, and The Farm Hands' Daryl Mosley as Frank Sinatra.
