  1. Brent Goodwin and Garrett Goodwin are actually in St Clair County and have a Trussville address but we’re not members of the Trussville Band. The twins are graduates of Springville High School and were members of the SHS Tiger Marching Band. They are 2 of 4 from the SHS band chosen to the Marching Southerners. Thanks for the mention. We are proud of them. And all the Southerners! #Blow Southerners!

  2. Thank you for the clarification. Congratuations!
