Interesting Statistic: Chapman vs. Gaither
Steven Curtis Chapman, the most popular artist in Contemporary Christian Music of all time, has sold over 10 million units (CDs/tapes/DVDs/probably 8-tracks and LPs) in his career.
The Gaither Homecoming Series has sold over 17 million units.
Granted, Chapman has sold more units per project, having released fewer projects. But it’s still a fascinating statistic for any who would say that Southern Gospel is a forgotten niche.
