The melodies, the lyrics, the message, the music … they are what drew us here.
I am a lover of gospel music and one of my favorite things is to share is fun facts about. I grew up around Southern gospel as a genre and have loved it ever since I was little. Living not too far from big gospel concert venues, both of my grandparents had tickets to gospel festivals and concerts, so we went several times each year. Usually, we would take in shows all around the US, so I became more familiar with gospel music through those shows. However, it wasn’t until I was a teenager that I really started learning more about the industry and getting familiar with popular groups. I began to realize that some of my favorite gospel songs weren’t originally sung by Branson singers. Haha! I still give my grandparents credit for introducing me to different groups through its Southern Gospel nights and festival. Now, the music has become a love of mine.
