The GAITHER VOCAL BAND Showcases Happy Rhythms on Two All-New DVDs
GRAMMY® Award-winning quintet the Gaither Vocal Band have released two all-new DVDs—Sometimes It Takes a Mountain (Gaither Music Group) and Happy Rhythm (Gaither Music Group) today. Hosted by Bill Gaither and recorded in an intimate, rustic setting just south of Nashville at the concert hall of celebrated country duo Joey+Rory, the all-new recordings release on the heels of the top-charting Sometimes It Takes a Mountain (Gaither Music Group) audio recording, which released last fall.
The videos feature LIVE performances of the songs from the Sometimes It Takes a Mountain audio recording along with additional numbers as well as special performances by HOMECOMING artists The Martins, The Isaacs, Goodman Revival, Charlotte Ritchie, Buddy Greene and The Nelons.
The recordings include interview footage with group members Bill Gaither, David Phelps, Wes Hampton, Todd Suttles and Adam Crabb and highlight the unmistakable harmonies that have garnered five GRAMMY® nominations, two GRAMMY® Awards and 17 GMA DOVE Awards. The Gaither Vocal Band was nominated for a 2015 GRAMMY® Award and was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2014.
The group’s intricate harmonies are showcased on songs written by some of gospel music’s most respected songwriters including Bill and Gloria Gaither, Suzanne Jennings, Mosie Lister, Michael W. Smith, Gerald Crabb, Thomas A. Dorsey, Henry Slaughter, Jeff Silvey, Reba Rambo-McGuire and Dony McGuire, among others. Crabb’s award-winning vocals are highlighted on the recording’s first radio single, “Sometimes It Takes a Mountain,” which is currently in the Top 5 on the national radio chart.
The new DVD releases will be featured on an international TV campaign which will air on PBS, Dish TV, DirecTV, AT&T Uverse, GaitherTV, TBN, RFD, FamilyNet, CTN, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN. It will air in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV.
