Christian Music News, New Christian Music News The GRAMMY® Award-winning Gaither Vocal Band is scheduled to release an all-new studio recording entitled Better Together (Gaither Music Group) on August 26th. 

The quintet's trend-setting harmonies breathe new life into gospel classics and American standards including "Working on a Building," "Dig a Little Deeper," "Didn't It Rain," "Led Out of Bondage" and more.  The newly-written title cut, penned by group founder and bass singer Bill Gaither, along with Reba Rambo-McGuire, Dony McGuire and Chip Davis, is a timeless anthem that celebrates the power of unity in an age of divisiveness.  Produced by Bill Gaither, group member and tenor David Phelps and Ben Isaacs (Jimmy Fortune, The Oak Ridge Boys), Better Together also features the group's unique rendition of "You've Got a Friend," a pop treasure previously performed by Carole King, James Taylor and others. 
"This current line-up of voices is capable of doing about any style of music out there," stated Gaither, "but we have stayed with the classics on this recording, and we are singing songs that have stood the test of time and will for many years to come.  And Gloria has done it once again.  She has created a moving lyric to the classical favorite 'Aura Lee' and it is very, very special. 

"We have heard it said that our strength lies in our diversity.  But I've come to believe that our strength lies in coming together in spite of our differences.  I still believe that there is more that unites us than divides us, and I believe the songs on this recording celebrate the things that bring us together.

"Our nation's motto, which is printed on our currency, is E pluribus unum, which means 'out of many, one.'  This is something we believe in as a group.  We each bring our part to create beautiful harmony, and we are truly better together than we are individually."

For over three decades Gaither has been bringing together some of the most well-respected gospel music vocalists, creating the benchmark tradition of the renowned Gaither Vocal Band.  Members David Phelps, Wes Hampton, Todd Suttles, Adam Crabb and Gaither continue the group's streak of award-winning line-ups, showcasing intricate vocal arrangements and intimate blends with this new release.

Creating unity with diverse talent has become a lifelong trademark for Gaither, who is a six-time GRAMMY® Award winner and a 41-time Gospel Music Association DOVE Award winner. He has hosted one of the largest concert tours in the Christian music industry for over two decades, joining the hands of artists, old and young, bridging generational gaps and varying musical preferences.

Better Together comes on the heels of the group's Sometimes It Takes a Mountain and Happy Rhythm DVD releases, which debuted at the #1 and #2 spots respectively on the Music Video Sales chart according to Nielsen SoundScan.     
The Gaither Vocal Band was awarded Southern Gospel Artist of the Year at the 2015 GMA DOVE Awards, and they were nominated for Best Roots Gospel Album at the 2015 GRAMMY® Awards. 

The Hall of Famers are seen regularly on 17 different TV networks that carry the Gaither Gospel Hour weekly.  Songs from Better Together will air on PBS, RFD, TBN, DIRECTV, Gaither Television Network (DISH TV Channel 276), AT&T U-Verse, FamilyNet, CTN, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT, TLN and GaitherTV (available on the internet, Roku TV, Sony TV and Google TV).  The product campaign will also air in Canada on Vision TV, The Miracle Channel, Grace TV and CTS.
 
Better Together will be featured in Homecoming Magazine, on gaither.com and on the Gaither YouTube channel, which garners over 15 million views monthly.  The recording will be distributed through Capitol Christian Distribution and will be available throughout general market stores and the Christian marketplace in addition to online retailers including iTunes, Amazon and www.gaither.com.
