Music City Singers (196?-19??)
The Music City Singers were a mixed trio consisting of Woody Beatty, Peggy Beatty and Ed Enoch during the mid- to late-1960s. The group was original billed as The Inspirations. At least four LPs featuring this line-up were released as The Inspirations. There was no connection to the male quartet based in Bryson City, North Carolina that also formed in the mid-1960s.
When Ed Enoch left the Music City Singers to join JD Sumner And The Stamps Quartet in 1969, the group continued for a while with Ron Hamilton and Jake Hess. While Hess traveled with the group, they were billed as Jake Hess & The Music City Singers.
