Dodd always dreamed of being a country singer like Merle Haggard. He started playing and singing professionally at the age of 13, played in bands all through high school and into college and had the privilege to work with some of the biggest names in country music in venues all over the U.S. In 1996 Dodd met Jesus Christ and his life was forever changed. Dodd traded the country music lifestyle of playing honkytonks and bars for playing in a praise band and singing in the choir. 2 years later he surrendered to the call of music ministry and felt led to join a southern gospel quartet.  In 2011, Dodd was ordained by Lakeside Baptist Church in Granbury Texas where he and his family have been members since 2007.

Garrett Gunn

Garrett is new to the quartet scene having joined Living Water in 2021.  Though this is his first quartet to sing with, his love for Southern Gospel started as a kid in the 70's when he saw George Younce sing the "Laughing Song" at Will Rogers Coliseum in Ft Worth Tx.  His childhood friend Brian Rayburn persistently encouraged Garrett to join him on stage so at 54 the grandfather of 6 decided to give it a shot.  He is known as "Pop" Gunn to his grandkids and his wife of 32 years Wendy is known as "BB".  They have 3 grown children of which two are married to wonderful spouses.  Garrett works at at&t and is a volunteer firefighter in Mount Pleasant, TX.
