John Scheideman mentioned my new blog in a recent entry on his blog. [EDIT, 11/9/10: The link is broken and has been removed.] He said more nice things about me than I deserve. One thing he said was this:
Daniel is always digging for more and more information about the music he loves so much. In that aspect, he reminds me of myself at the same age. He has an advantage I never had back then…he has the resources of the internet at his disposal, and he has made far more connections in the gospel music world that I made when I was 20.
And one of those connections was John himself. I learn something new every week in the history section of the Southern Gospel Nuts message board. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link appears to be down, and has been removed.] There is no way I would know anywhere near what I know about the field were it not for the generosity of Dean Adkins, David Bruce Murray, John Crenshaw, and John Scheideman with their encyclopedic knowledge of our genre.
A note to any who want to know what know about Southern Gospel: When any of these men speak, listen closely.Read More
