Best Radio Songs Of The 1980’s: #14

Moving ever closer to the top ten Southern Gospel radio songs of the 1980’s.  Today, we take a look at the song ranked 14th.

The Cathedrals were at the top of their game in the ’80’s.  Nearly every album of new music released during the decade could find a home in an all time best album’s list.

It was 1986’s Travelin’ Live that gave the Cathedrals their best radio single of the decade; “Boundless Love”.  The Dianne Wilkinson song not only went #1 on the Southern Gospel radio singles chart, it also became a Southern Gospel standard for nearly every quartet to perform at some point during their career.
