I heard their name before and was thinking adding them because they are a popular name. But never really heard their music. But it sounds good!

Yeah, they were always a fun band with some deeper songs. Another one not on your list is Third Day. They have a lot of good ones. This one I relate to a lot.

Johnny Cash
Bob Dylan
Aretha Franklin
Al Green
Willie Nelson

I just do not know everything! I have only so mch time to discover (new) music. So that's why I ask :D

Ik know these artist have created gospel music but also mostly secular music. Can you classify them as Christian/gospel artists? Is a band like U2 a Christian band or a secular band who writes Christian songs or with Christian themes? I"m not sure.

A lot of pop stars got their start singing gospel music. Most of the artists I listed are in the Gospel Music Hall of Fame because they created great Gospel Music even after they were famous pop stars.



Some people are ultra concerned with labeling people and / or genres. Whereas I'm more concerned with the quality / values of the musicians. Johnny Cash may have been a huge pop star but deep down he'll always be a gospel singer / truth teller to me.


Elvis has a million great songs and I think it would be a great disservice to him to discount his gospel songs just because he had great success in secular music.



Even rock artists can create great versions of gospel songs even though most of their music is secular. ZZ Top's "Jesus Just Left Chicago", The Doobie Brothers' "Jesus is Just Alright", Janis Joplin's "Mercedes Benz", James Brown in the "Blues Brothers" movie, etc.



To me, great music is great music regardless of what genre people want to pigeonhole the artist into. The struggles these artists went thru to get where they got is just as important or maybe more important as all the fame and fortune they attained.



Quote:

In March 1935, when Johnny Cash was three years old, the family settled in Dyess, Arkansas, a New Deal colony established to give poor families the opportunity to work land that they may later own.[24] From the age of five, Cash worked in cotton fields with his family, singing with them as they worked. The Cash farm in Dyess experienced a flood, which led Cash later to write the song "Five Feet High and Rising".[25] His family's economic and personal struggles during the Great Depression inspired many of his songs, especially those about other people facing similar difficulties. Consequently, Cash had sympathy for the poor and working class throughout his life.


On Saturday May 12, 1944, Cash's older brother Jack, with whom he was close, was seriously injured in an accident at his job in a high school. He was pulled into an unguarded table saw while cutting oak into fence posts, and was almost cut in two. He died from his injuries a week later.[26] Cash often spoke of the guilt he felt over this incident; according to Cash: The Autobiography, his father was away that morning, but Johnny, his mother, and even Jack himself, all had premonitions or a sense of foreboding about that day. His mother urged Jack to skip work and go fishing with his brother, but he insisted on working as the family needed the money. On his deathbed, Jack said he had visions of Heaven and angels. Decades later, Cash spoke of looking forward to meeting his brother in Heaven.[7]


Cash's early memories were dominated by gospel music and radio. Taught guitar by his mother and a childhood friend, Cash began playing and writing songs at the age of 12. When young, Cash had a high-tenor voice, before becoming a bass-baritone after his voice changed.[27]


In high school, he sang on a local radio station. Decades later, he released an album of traditional gospel songs, called My Mother's Hymn Book.

Oh sorry, I only red Katy Hudson. Ofcourse, she once was a gospel singer. Too bad she had to sell her soul. She didn't have to change her style. There are plenty of succesful gospel singers like Amy Grant.

I guess youre right. But us humans like to categorize and create sgenres to clarify things. To me, music is music too.
