Southern Gospel Tidbits

DID YOU KNOW?:  There was a Southern Gospel quartet, out of Texas, in the 1970’s known as the Singing Christians.  Great name for a Gospel group, but the Christian came as a result of three brothers in the group (last name Christian).

When quite a few Southern Gospel artists flirted with country music in the late 1970’s/early 1980’s, the Singing Christians decided to change their name to the Mercy River Boys and record two albums with country-style Gospel music.

  1. I heard a group from Colorado in about 1983 called The Christian Sons. I’ve tried to find out whatever happened to them. I’m pretty sure the name of one of them was Van Christian. We saw them in Central Washington state when they were touring the area.
