About Jim Escott

  • Jim was born in Red Deer in 1948 and has spent the majority of his life in the area. From growing up on the family farm at Pine Lake - to working in the oil field industry throughout Western Canada - to selling Real Estate in the Red Deer area, he hasn't strayed too far from "home". Music entered his life at an early age when he took his first piano lessons at the age of 5. He also had accordion lessons during elementary school years. Jim attended Holy Trinity Sunday School and Church and in his early teens played with a couple of local bands. In 1969 he moved to Calgary for 2 and a half years and also played with a group there. Jim and Grace were married in 1975 are have been blessed with a daughter, a son and 2 grandsons and 3 grand daughters. In 1978 they bought a house in Red Deer where they still reside today. Throughout his life, music and in particular, gospel music have played a major role in Jim's life. When Garry and Dennis suggested a country gospel group, it was a dream come true. And even now with all changes of members over the years the original standards are still in play.
