One of the premier religious harmony groups, the Gaither Vocal Band was formed by contemporary gospel legend Bill Gaither in 1981 with Gary McSpadden, Lee Young and Steve Green. The group has recorded for Star Song, Benson, and Chordant, receiving many Dove Awards and several Grammy nominations. The Gaither Vocal Band has released two volumes of Southern Classics and 20 Inspirational Favorites, as well as the live recording Back Home in Indiana and 1999's God Is Good. By this time, David Phelps had joined the group, and I Do Believe was issued in fall 2000. Lowry left the band in 2002 and was replaced by Russ Taff. Everything Good appeared that same year, followed by A Cappella (2003), Give It Away (2006), Lovin' Life (2008), Reunited (2009) and Better Day and Greatly Blessed, both of which arrived in 2010.
