Has the Rick Hendrix Company disappeared?
The Rick Hendrix Company had a successful and sometimes controversial run in Southern Gospel radio promotion; see, for example, our stories here, here, and here. But, along the way, they promoted countless chart-topping hits, with multiple #1s. Last night, I noticed that they haven’t had a song appearing in the Singing News Top 80 charts since January 2012.
Granted, it has been a year and a half, so it’s hardly a news item. But I haven’t noticed anyone else mention it, and a chapter this colorful in Southern Gospel history ought not pass into the history books completely unmentioned.
