“I don’t think any writer or artist starts off with the idea of winning awards in mind,” Gaither said. “That’s just a bonus.”
The main force behind Gaither’s music is it’s message — and that message of hope is particularly important in today’s economic climate. Gaither admits that throughout his life he’s been a bit of a “news addict”.
“But I haven’t been turning on the TV news a lot these days,” Gaither said. “There is a lot of depressing stuff, but I remember in the 70s hearing very much the same negative news.”
When the Gaither Homecoming group hits the stage on March 26, Gaither says the goal will be to bring some hope to what is a gloomy time for some.
“We hope to bring the message of the meaning of hope,” Gaither said. “We want to give people an opportunity to turn off the TV and hear something positive for a night.”
