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.
