Nashville, TN (October 25, 2019)
History was made when over 20 members, past and present, of the GRAMMY® Award-winning Gaither Vocal Band gathered on one stage for the first-ever LIVE reunion concert. A DVD and CD recording of the two-day event, which took place in Greenville, SC, at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in 2018, is available everywhere now.
On October 18, Gaither Music Group partnered with YouTube for a Reunion LIVE Gaither TV premiere, marking the first time the label has debuted a release on one of its online platforms. The Gaither YouTube Channel, which has become a hub from which people around the world can enjoy the latest Gaither videos as well as the brand’s decades-long catalog of music, has accumulated over 1.3 million subscribers with over 1.3 billion views.
