Southern Gospel Music - Singers - About The Music

Southern Gospel Music

Have you heard of Southern Gospel Music? Maybe you have or maybe never, but it has retained it's popularity more than most any type of music. The timeless messages survive generation to generation. However the style varies with the times like any other music genre.

Southern Gospel has a very wide range of styles. The styles are attempted to be divided up in to different categories like quartet style, southern, progressive southern and country gospel. Some borderline the more contemporary gospel, some tend to lean toward praise and worship. There is a little variety for any taste except rock of course. I have added some videos to give you a sample of Southern Gospel Music. Let me know what you think:.)


This will take you back to the late 70's when the gospel group the Hinsons debued. They were the most popular group of 80's. Kenny Hinson was an awesome singer.

1987 The Hinsons singing " The Lighthouse"

The Hinsons

The Hinsons were the the top Gospel Music Group of the 80's. Kenny Hinson was one of the greatest singers of all time. He was offered fame in the secular venue, but he loved gospel music and chose to keep singing his passion. He passed away in his 40's he is greatly missed. Ronny Hinson is a world-renowned awarded gospel music songwriter, his music is still in high demand. I just wanted to slip a little of the old stuff now check out some of the new southern gospel artists.

The Crabb Family- They been at the Grand Ole Opry and had several #1 songs- They have now despanded and started different groups, but they were popular for a fe

Here is the Martins they are awesome!!! Joyce Martin actually sang on a demo that I co-wrote, I was so excited, she's great. The video is a little blurry.

The Gaither Vocal Band Singing At The White House " Let Freedom Ring" Totally Awesome....starts out slow, but please listen to it all.

Hilarious Christian Comedian Aaron Wilborn " If You Nose Was Runnin Money" You Got to see it:.)

Karen Peck & New River Singing " Four Days Late" This is a beautiful song.....nomatter what you are going through he will come through for you if you trust

I will conclude my Southern Gospel Music samples with the talented Isaacs singing " Heroes" This song is AWESOME

Just a note:

I hope you enjoyed a preview of Southern Gospel Music. I am a singer and songwriter and I have had the opportunity to open concerts for some groups...it was allot of fun, there is allot of energy in their concerts. I have written over 200 songs ( some of them are southern gospel). I have some songs starting to getting national attention, I am so excited what God has in-store for my own ministry. I am so unworthy, but very thankful:)
