Christian music is often the black sheep of the music industry. It almost never gets on the radio, never achieves mainstream popularity. Aside from a few standouts, Christian music is kind of behind the curve.
Why is this? Is it because the audience is smaller, the art form newer? I wondered if Christians music was just at an evolutionary disadvantage. I decided to investigate the roots of the Christian music industry, the vinyl days, the glory days of gospel music.
My discoveries were shocking. Truth be told, I can’t figure out how Christianity made it this far. I have no idea how many records these musicians sold. It could have been a million, more likely it was 10 close relatives who felt guilty.
Well, Larry doesn’t show up half the time,
and Betty is a woman. So it’s still a quartet.
Anyone actually heard of any of these fine musical talents? Found these records in your grandparents’ basement?
