Since his early days with the Bill Gaither Trio, Bill Gaither has enjoyed a love of hymns. That love has grown stronger over the years, and these sacred gems have reached new levels of popularity during the last 20 years of Homecoming concerts featuring stars of country and southern gospel music. This August, Time Life invited fans of gospel and Christian music to enjoy in BILL GAITHER'S HOMECOMING HYMNS, an unforgettable collection of the world's most beautiful hymns personally selected by Bill himself. Packed with 150 inspirational performances, a bonus 20-song CD, a collectible 48-page hymns book and more, the handsome 10-disc collector's set is only available currently through Time Life.com or by calling 1-800-950-7887.
Hymns have always been an important part of the Gaither Homecoming concerts, and their hymn-oriented DVDs have been among their most successful. Now, for the first time, the greatest hymns from all of the Homecoming concerts plus other Gaither-hosted concerts are gathered in one collection -- the biggest collection of Gaither's hymns ever -- including timeless classics such as "The Old Rugged Cross," "Blessed Assurance," "Amazing Grace," "Peace in the Valley" and "What a Friend We Have in Jesus." Certain to become a family favorite, this incredible collection is brought to life by rich performances from the Homecoming family of artists including the Gaither Vocal Band, Vestal Goodman, The Cathedrals, Jake Hess and David Phelps. HOMECOMING HYMNS is also enlivened by guest performers including country legends George Jones, The Oak Ridge Boys, Larry Gatlin, Marty Stuart and Alabama.
Aside from rousing, heartfelt performances this specially-priced collection features a DVD of Christmas hymns, an attractive 48-page hymns book with lyrics allowing viewers to sing-along at home, a 20-song CD featuring highlights of the collection and bonus content including extended conversations with Bill and Gloria Gaither, Behind the Scenes featurettes about the "Amazing Grace" and "How Great Thou Art" DVDs, and an exclusive, new interview with Bill Gaither talking about hymns.
