In Search Of Southern Gospel’s Greatest Songwriter – Contenders

Last week I asked readers to nominate songwriters, by decade, to ultimately determine Southern Gospel’s greatest songwriter.  I filled in the gaps and completed the full list of contenders by decade.  I included songwriters in the decade I felt they made the most impact.  Voting rounds will begin next week.  Click on the thumbnail to see the full list of contenders by decade.

  1. Very interesting list!

    I think it’s evident that you hiring a singer/songwriter should be one of the goals of a group. I noticed many of the songwriters over the past two decades were tied to a big name group. I guess it’s worth asking, does the group make the songwriter or the songwriter make the group?

  2. Very good list! I can’t believe I forgot about Joel Hemphil. I was trying to think of writers no one else had named and I would have nominated him for either the 70’s or 80’s if I had thought about him.
