First "Official" Video Of The New Gaither Vocal Band

It would seem that Gaither has discovered the value of Youtube.

After seeing the hype it generated for the GVB Reunion videos, he used it to do so for the new Oak Ridge Boys video.

And now, he’s giving the world a taste of the new five-man Gaither Vocal Band in this video showing highlights of their debut in Orlando, Florida.

The guys sound fantastic, Michael English especially. This is much better than he sounded in the first clip of the Reunion video, and he sounds a lot like he did in his first GVB stint. He sounds great on “Let Freedom Ring” especially (which sounds like it has been lowered half a step. It still sounds just as powerful!)

I am greatly looking forward to seeing this group for myself in Charlottesville, VA on April 26th.
