Our Featured Artists on this first "regular edition" of The Gospel Greats program for 2017 were the Gaither Vocal Band, one of today's foremost and best-known Southern Gospel groups. As you heard, we talked with Bill Gaither, Wes Hampton, David Phelps, Adam Crabb and Todd Suttles about songs from their new CD entitled "Better Together." This is an unusual CD, in that they've gone back and re-done some old spirituals, although in the Vocal Band style. I like Bill's emphasis on keeping the vocals out front, minimizing the background music so that the voices and especially the words can be clearly heard.
The Gaither Vocal Band's CD featured on this program, "Better Together," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order. You can order easily from our webstore by using this link to go directly to this item.
This program included a "mini-countdown" of January's top 5 songs, since there had been no regular Top 20 countdown due to the Christmas and year-in-review specials. By the way, thanks to all of you who told us how much you enjoyed the Christmas and year-in-review programs again this year.
On the Headline Update I mentioned Scott Fowler's "Go Fund Me" campaign to raise funds for a new bus for the Freedom Singers. Here's the address for more information: https://www.gofundme.com/freedomsingerstransportationfund
