Aaron Swain interviews Michael English

Aaron Swain at Swain’s Musings posted his first interview earlier this week, featuring Michael English. [EDIT, 2/22/13: Broken link removed.] It’s a 26-minute video, with numerous fascinating tidbits. Among them: English mentions several songs on the Gaither Vocal Band’s upcoming CD. The CD will include “That Sounds Like Home to Me,” “Better Day,” a Wes Hampton feature on the old Talleys song “He is Here,” and an English feature on an unnamed Crabb Family song. (Could it be “Through the Fire”? The GVB could really render a magnificent male-harmony rendition of that song.)

It is fascinating, and well worth the 26 minutes.

  1. He did a great job! Just listening goes a long way….

  2. Thanks for sharing, it was a great interview and I enjoyed listening to it. These interviews makes the artist more real to those who follow the singers.

  3. Daniel, thank you so much for linking to the post. I am thrilled with the positive responses it has been getting!

    • No problem – I’m glad to. 🙂

  4. I must say that Aaron did a fantastic job in interviewing who can only be described as a “legend.” Michael English is a man of exceptional talents, and as he opened his heart and shared with you, he is a man just like us; wounded and sometimes frail. Yes, he sinned. So have we. Yes, he ran from God. So have we. And, just like the Prodigal Son, Michael returned home to his Father, and has once again used the talents that God has given him to glorify His name.

    Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, said this. “The Jesus in me has got to love the Jesus in you.” Michael English spoke so eloquently of the harsh words that were used upon his retunr to the GVB, and the truth is NONE of us have the right to speak a word against him.

    Thanks again for this interview.
