"I've always said it all starts with a great song, and we are fortunate that each concert includes great songs that have stood the test of time,"?he said. "With all the musical choices that are available now, there is still a special place for the joy and optimism that reside in Gospel music. Good news never gets old."

Named ASCAP's Songwriters of the Century, Bill and Gloria Gaither have written more than 700 popular gospel songs throughout their multi-decade career, including favorite standards "He Touched Me," "Because He Lives" and "There's Just Something About That Name."
