IMHO - Southern Gospel Music is in a category completely unto itself. I have sung in so many choirs, ensembles, quartets, trios I have lost count. I started at the age of twelve singing with my family. And heard all the great Southern Gospel groups growing up in the South. Southern Gospel is a unique blend of harmony and soul that proclaims the Gospel to anyone that will listen. And millions do listen all over the world. It started in 1910 in Tennessee. From the Statesman Quartet, along with many more groups to current day groups.
First up on today's Countdown is a trio of siblings - The Martins, discovered in 1987 by Michael English, Mark Lowry and Bill Gaither at the National Quartet Convention in Nashville Tennessee, have become a fixture with the Gaither Music Homecoming Tours. Here they are performing one of their favorites - Go Tell!
