Four Southern Gospel Websites Merge
Four Southern Gospel websites announced this morning that they will be merging in one week: Diana Brantley’s SGConcerts, Phil Boles’ Phil Boles on Southern Gospel, Steve Eaton’s Southern Gospel Views from the Back Row, and David Bruce Murray’s / Kyle Boreing’s MusicScribe. For now, they will be blogging at sogospelbackrow.wordpress.com.
They announced that they will be accepting suggestions about what domain they should use as their permanent blogging home. I will suggest publicly what I have suggested privately: MusicScribe is one of the most recognizable brands in the Southern Gospel blogging world. With eight and a half years of history, I believe it has been going for over twice as long as any of the other merging blogs. At any rate, David Bruce Murray is an absolute institution in the genre, Steve Eaton has the best column series ideas in this genre, Diana Brantley is the Queen of Southern Gospel on YouTube, and Phil Boles provides a welcome international perspective. So this site will certainly be a must-read.
