TracyStuffleLivingLegendStowTown Records' The Perrys has announced that the group's bass vocalist, emcee and manager, Tracy Stuffle, has been named Christian Voice's "Living Legend" for 2015.

Growing up in Morristown, Tennessee, Stuffle's love of music and talent for speaking were evident at a young age. He grew up loving the songs of the church and the classic sounds of Southern gospel, which fueled his fire to sing the music himself.
