“I am so proud of the young men in the Vocal Band,” stated three-time Gospel Music Association (GMA) Hall of Fame member and group founder Bill Gaither. “It’s always an honor to be nominated, especially with the caliber of folks in our category this year. I have the utmost respect for all of the nominees and wish them all the best!”
The Recording Academy will present the The 65th GRAMMY Awards live on CBS Sunday, Feb. 5, from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, and stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
The GRAMMY news follows an October GMA Dove Award win for Gaither Vocal Band, who took home the Southern Gospel Recorded Song of the Year award at the Nashville ceremony for “My Feet Are on the Rock” from the GRAMMY-nominated album That’s Gospel, Brother. The song, produced by Bill Gaither and ACM Award winner Gordon Mote, was a Top 5 radio hit. The Gospel Music Hall of Famers have garnered more than two dozen Dove Awards.
The legendary group has just recorded a new single “Shine (The Darker the Night the Brighter the Light)” scheduled for digital release on November 25.
“This is a very important song with a powerful idea that I believe with all my heart,” says Bill Gaither. “The world has never been stable, and according to God’s Word it is not going to be stable. We are called to be God’s light — to shine — in an unstable culture. Do we really believe and live out the power of love and grace? Every now and then we say about a song ,‘this is a special idea that can make a difference in the way we live.’ I think this is one of those songs.”
The quintet has released four new Christmas singles on digital streaming platforms including “Jesus, What a Lovely Name,” “My Heart Would Be Your Bethlehem,” “Tennessee Christmas” and “Mary Was the First One to Carry the Gospel” with three more on the way between now and Christmas. Videos of each of the songs can be found on the Gaither Music TV YouTube channel (over 2.7M followers) and on the Gaither FB page (over 1.7M followers). The group is seen weekly on numerous TV networks including PBS, DIRECTV, Dish TV, RFD-TV, Trinity Broadcasting Network and many others throughout the United States and Canada.
Gaither Vocal Band is completing its fall tour at present and will kick off its seven-stop Christmas tour on December 1 in Hershey, PA. They will be performing songs from their 2021 Christmas album All Heaven And Nature Sing, in addition to other Christmas classics.
All recordings by Gaither Vocal Band are distributed by Capitol Christian Music Group and Universal Music.
