The Gospel Music Hall of Fame member quintet was honored for its recent all-new recording, Better Together, produced by group founder and bass singer Bill Gaither, group tenor David Phelps and Ben Isaacs (Jimmy Fortune, The Oak Ridge Boys).  The title cut, penned by 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.          

"At this time in the history of the world, we need each other more than ever," stated Gaither after hearing about the nomination.  "The Vocal Band has so enjoyed encouraging audiences with songs that remind us to watch each other's backs and extend a helping hand to those around us. Together, we can change the atmosphere and make this world a better place."

That message is reflected throughout the 12-song collection that breathes 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 recording 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. 

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.

The Gaither Vocal Band is seen regularly on 17 different TV networks that carry the Gaither Gospel Hour weekly.  Songs from Better Together are airing 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 campaign is airing in Canada on Vision TV, The Miracle Channel, Grace TV and CTS.  

Better Together debuted at #1 on the Southern Gospel chart and at #9 on the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) chart, according to Nielsen Soundscan.  It is distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and is available throughout general market stores and the Christian marketplace in addition to online retailers including iTunes, Amazon and www.gaither.com.
