Survey: Familiarity with Other Genres
Every now and then, a commenter here raises the question of how familiar Southern Gospel fans are with other genres.
Let’s find out.
Here’s a survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/X57CNHH
The survey takes seven genres’ most prominent artists and asks how familiar you are with their music.
With one exception, the seven artists representing each genre were drawn from the nominees in that genre’s leading awards show (Grammy, Dove, IBMA, Singing News). The one exception is Inspirational, since the genre as defined from ~1975-~1995 no longer exists as an industry. I included it out of curiosity whether any significant number of Southern Gospel fans have come to this genre after Inspirational as we knew it faded away.
