The song ranked 13th among the least remarkable recorded in the history of Southern Gospel music was never intended to be a Gospel song per se.
Hillbilly Rock artist, Carl Perkins, penned the famous “Daddy Sang Bass” in 1967. Originally recorded by Johnny Cash, the song spent six weeks at #1 on the Billboard country charts in 1968. Cash’s recording of “Daddy Sang Bass” went on to be nominated single of the year by the Country Music Association in 1969.
While there were numerous covers of this song by mainstream country artists, an abundance of Southern Gospel talent also recorded “Daddy Sang Bass”. While the song fits the country music market, I never considered it a Gospel song and therefore that is why it finds a home on this list.
Here is a YouTube clip of the Prophets Quartet’s rendition of the song ranked 13th among the least remarkable in the history of Southern Gospel music; “Daddy Sang Bass”.
