I have been thinking lately about song success in Southern Gospel music. As early as 15 years ago, there were still mega-songs being recorded. It seems that has become a thing of the past. I need everyone’s help in ranking what you feel to be the most important part of a Southern Gospel song. There will be a follow-up post to this one regarding Southern Gospel song success. Please rank the following song characteristics, based on your opinion, from most important to least important. If there is any I overlooked please add them to your ranking. I have them listed alphabetically.
- Artist singing it
- Specific songwriter
