One huge example is the current #1 song on the Singing News radio singles chart; the Browders, “Put It Into God God’s Hands”. How can a song go #1 and there be no way for listeners to get access to the song digitally? Preposterous.
Even, if as an artist, you don’t want to provide your music to the digital download sites for purchase, you should have a way for listeners to purchase your music digitally from your website.
Many will argue that is just not Southern Gospel’s fan base. They only need hard copy CDs. Wrong. This writer/listener will not take you seriously as an artist if your music is not available for digital download.
