Gaither Vocal Band
The Gaither Vocal Band is an American Southern Gospel vocal group, named after its founder and leader Bill Gaither. Although the group started out recording contemporary Christian music, it became known for southern gospel after the popularity of the Gaither Homecoming videos.
The lineup of the band changes often, with artists leaving to work on solo careers, and new ones coming to replace them. Besides Bill Gaither himself, singers with the longest tenure in the band include Guy Penrod (1995–2008), Mark Lowry (1988-2001, 2009-present), and Michael English (1985-1994, 2009-present).
The band has released 27 albums (not including compilations), at least 19 of which have charted. The band has also released 10 DVD's, which feature many other Christian artists as well. The Gaither Vocal Band has been honored with 2 Grammys, and 16 Dove Awards.
