HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- Take 6 founding member Claude McKnight has given each of the 10 Grammy Awards he's won with the gospel vocal group to his mom.
"It's kind of a cool thing for her, I suppose, to be able to look at those when she feels like she wants to see what her son has done," McKnight says with a chuckle. He's driving a rented car between Birmingham and Huntsville when he's reached via cellphone. About a year ago, McKnight moved from Nashville to Los Angeles.
Take 6 is embarking on a tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of their platinum-selling, self-titled debut album, and the sextet – which also features Joel Kibble, Alvin Chea, Mark Kibble, Dave Thomas and Khristian Dentley - has actually been re-cutting the "Take 6" LP in its entirety for a release later this year.
