The Racing City Chorus has lost more than a dear friend. George "Guv" Wallace was the Racing City Chorus; it was as much a part of him as he was of it. He was known only as "Guv", but that simple name, and his gentle smile, came to be known as the public face of the RCC. He was our identity to the Barbershopping community. To our clients, he was our agent and “front man.” He was also our ambassador to the Chamber of Commerce, the public, and potential members, to whom he offered countless business cards, directing them to “call Guv,”
Yes, he was more than a caring friend to each and every member. He was the welcomer for every visitor, candidate or Barbershopper he met. He nourished relationships and cared for people. His tireless efforts were a large part of how the Racing City Chorus has continued to grow.
Guv was our moral, ethical and business compass, but more than that he was a true lifelong, performer, Barbershopper and our friend.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Carol, Adam and the family. George Wallace gave so much and asked so little. He is missed.
God Bless You Guv.

Did you ever wonder why men's barbershop music is written on the treble and bass clef while the notes actually sung are really bass clef notes? Below is the first line of My Wild Irish Rose written as actually sung with the tenor part in black, the lead in red, the bari in green and the bass in blue! Now you know.
