At the Peak

We southern gospel fans like to debate when our favorite groups were at their peak, had their best lineup, and were making their best music.  For example, I’ll tell it wherever I go that the Cathedrals were never better than when they were Glen, George, Mark, and Danny.  Others will argue just as strongly that …

Free Inspirations Single Download

Crossroads is offering, for this week only, a free download of the Inspirations’ “So Simple, So Profound,” from their new album It’s in the Savior’s Hands.  As I noted in my review of the album, this is one of the strongest cuts, and also a unique song for the Inspirations.  Every southern gospel fan should take …

At What Cost?

Anybody who knows me knows that I have some nerdy tendencies.  One of those tendencies is to create spreadsheets of everything and anything I want to keep track of, whether it be financial, sports-related, or music-related.  One of my “dearest” spreadsheets is my Music Wish List, which contains a list of southern gospel CDs, most …
