More About Gaither Vocal Band
The Gaither Vocal Band got its start in the early 1980s with four guys singing around a piano backstage before a Bill Gaither Trio concert. Gary McSpadden, Steve Green, Lee Young and Bill Gaither were just having fun, harmonizing on “Your First Day in Heaven” when Bill decided they should try out their new sound on a live audience that very night. The audience went wild… and that impromptu performance marked the beginning of an era.
Now, for more than a quarter century, the Gaither Vocal Band has created a legacy of award-winning excellence that has forever raised the bar for male harmony. The list of men who have comprised the Gaither Vocal Band over the years reads like a “Who’s Who” among the gospel music industry’s best-loved voices, including: Gary McSpadden, Steve Green, Lee Young, Jon Mohr, Larnelle Harris, Michael English, Lemuel Miller, Jim Murray, Mark Lowry, Terry Franklin, Buddy Mullins, Jonathan Pierce, David Phelps, Russ Taff, Guy Penrod, Marshall Hall and Wes Hampton.
Always at the helm has been Bill Gaither, who has led the group out of his personal passion for great harmony and his genuine desire to bring meaningful music to a hurting world. And the Grammy-winning, chart-busting success of the Gaither Vocal Band has far exceeded his wildest expectations.
In January 2009, a Reunion of Gaither Vocal Band alumni was released on DVD and immediately shot to the top of Billboard Magazine’s Music Video charts for four consecutive weeks, and topped Christian and Southern Gospel audio charts. The celebration rekindled friendships among the alumni, honored the group’s past, and even offered a glimpse into the future… a future that would begin by bringing back voices from the Vocal Band’s rich legacy of talent to create a brand new season in the life of the GVB.
Today, the Gaither Vocal Band roster is comprised of Bill Gaither, Wes Hampton, David Phelps, Michael English and Mark Lowry. Individually, these men are gifted artists and men of authentic faith. Together, they are the incomparable Gaither Vocal Band, known around the world for their powerhouse vocals, innovative harmonies and life-altering message… a message of grace, hope and redemption.

Reviews - What do customers think about Southern Classics, Vol. 2?
WONDERFUL CD-POWERFUL VOICES Aug 28, 2001
THIS CD IS MARVELOUS!!! TO HAVE 2 POWERFUL VOICES(JONATHAN PIERCE, GUY PENROD) IN THE SAME GROUP SAYS WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT BILL GAITHER. THIS MAN IS AMAZING, TO BE ABLE TO FIND SUCH TALENTS. I LOVE ALL THE SONGS. JONATHAN PIERCE ON HIS SOLO'S KNOWS WHEN TO BE VERY POWERFUL AND WHEN TO SILENT HIS BEAUTIFUL VOICE TO BLEND WITH THE OTHER VOICES. WHEW, WHAT AN AMAZING TALENT!!! I RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE TO BUY THIS ALBUM...
Southern Classics Vol. II Jul 24, 2000
This continues the recording of classics with the "Gaither Touch" that the first volume started. The best cuts are: Count On Me ( A powerful song). Bill's solo starts the song off more mellow and personal and then Guy Penrod's solo cranks it up with a soulful side that he hadn't shown on previous performances. He puts as much power, emotion, and kick in it as Michael Bolton could do, (but not to the point of excess.) The Old Rugged Cross Made The Difference is also a powerful cut with Penrod once again giving it all he has, and is a great arrangement. Farther Along is a good, new arrangement of the classic hymn, giving Jonathan Pierce a shot at the high and powerful type of solo. Sweeter As The Days Go By is a nice arrangement of the song that kicks, and gives Penrod a chance to adlib on a descant toward the end. They also update Search Me Lord with a modern arrangement. This, as I recall, was the first CD of their's that started the move toward integrating a country style into their material on several songs, but there is still the Inspirational, and Black Gospel material on here that they've previously been known for, as well.
SOUTHERN CLASICS PRETTY GOOD Mar 7, 2000
I THINK SOUTHERN CLASICS WAS A VERY GOOD CD. I WOULD RECOMEND TRACKS 1,4,AND 11. I BELIEVE THEY ARE THE MOST POWERFULL.A MUST FOR ANY GVB FAN.
More of the excellent quality from the Vocal Band Sep 15, 1999
I am a "Vocal Band" fan and I listen to their music all the time. This album is just more of their excellent talents and sound. You can really feel the presence of the Lord when you listen to their music
Powerful songs with meaningful messages Aug 23, 1998
Perhaps one of the best of the Gaither Vocal Band recordings. If you appreciate the Gaither Vocal Band you will love this CD. I paid more for the recording in a retail store and had to wait two (2) weeks. The this site price represents a substantial savings.
