Gospel Music Hall of Famers the Gaither Vocal Band have once again proven their excellence by securing a nomination for Best Roots Gospel Album at the 66th GRAMMY Awards. The nomination is for their critically-acclaimed album Shine: The Darker the Night the Brighter the Light (Gaither Music Group), available everywhere via Capitol Christian Music Group and Universal Music.
Founded by gospel music legend Bill Gaither, the Gaither Vocal Band have consistently delighted fans and critics alike with their dynamic performances and deeply meaningful lyrics for decades. Currently comprised of Gaither, Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd Suttles and Reggie Smith, the quintet is known for its harmonious blends and spiritually-uplifting music that resonates deeply with audiences worldwide.
The band’s newest album, Shine: The Darker the Night the Brighter the Light, produced by Gaither and Gordon Mote, offers new renditions of “The Old Rugged Cross Made the Difference,” “Right Place, Right Time” and “Make Me an Instrument” and sees the Gaither Vocal Band joining forces with contemporary Christian hitmakers CAIN to deliver a new twist to the worship hit “Rise Up (Lazarus).”
Combining smooth blends and catchy melodies with messages of redemption and encouragement, the album is accompanied by a full-length, performance DVD (available for purchase here) and TV special airing across multiple TV networks.
This honor marks the Gaither Vocal Band’s 13th GRAMMY nomination, with two previous wins.
