James R. Goff Jr.: Close Harmony History Of Southern Gospel
English, Paperback, 14.5x23 cm, 392 pages, b&w photos; The spread of white gospel music is intricately connected to the people who based their livelihoods on it and 'Close Harmony' is filled with the stories of artists and groups such as Frank Stamps, the Chuck Wagon Gang, the Blackwood Brothers, the Rangers, the Swanee River Boys , the Statesmen, and the Oak Ridge Boys. As the most successful of these groups carried southern gospel outside the South, they set the stage for the musical diversity that splintered the industry during the 1960s and 1970s, when the traditional barriers to interaction between white and black artists were broken. In the decades that followed, white gospel was significantly changed by various musical influences, including black gospel, bluegrass, rock, metal, and later, rap. With Christian music sales topping the $600 million mark at the close of the twentieth century, 'Close Harmony' explores the history of an important and influential segment of the thriving gospel industry.
