I thought I would kick off the week by offering a little switch of Southern Gospel’s current popular artists and swapping them with artists that deserve to be recognized as ‘first’.
Starting with mixed group, I would swap the Collingsworth Family with the Erwins. These young kids have proven they are at the top of their game.
On the solo artist side, I would easily swap out Ivan Parker with Jason Crabb. “Home” and “If I Shout” are more than enough reason.
Taking a look at trio, the Booth Brothers would be swapped out with Goodman Revival. The musical concert experience offered the audience by Goodman Revival with actual musicians is a missed art in Southern Gospel music.
Finally, quartet would have me swapping Triumphant Quartet with Tribute Quartet, for the mere fact they are currently providing the listener with some of the best Southern Gospel quartet music.
So, how would you handle the swapping of Southern Gospel’s current most popular artists?
