News Roundup #4

The Worcester Telegram & Gazette has an interview with Bill Gaither on the Homecoming phenemenon. It seems that in every Gaither Vocal Band member interview in a local paper, there is always a fascinating tidbit, and this is no exception:

Last year the Gaither Vocal Band released “Give It Away,” and Gaither said his summer break, which begins right after the concert in Worcester, will likely include a little work in the studio for another project. And Gaither assured that his recording projects are much more than toss-offs to the faithful.

“I find it a challenge to be able to put something down on record that 40 or 50 years from now when a young person comes along and says, ‘Tell me something about this music,’ someone will pull out this record and say, ‘These guys were good,’” Gaither said.

Another article worth checking out is a Beckley, West Virginia story on Dennis Murphy’s impersonation attempts of Kenny Chesney. [EDIT, 11/6/10: Regrettably, the link seems to be broken, so it has been removed.]
