An Interview With Michael English

March 09, 2010 By: Aaron Category: Gaither Vocal Band, Interviews, Michael English, SG Artists, SG Music

This is one of the most exciting posts I’ve been able to make in this blog’s existence! As the very first interview done on Swain’s Musings, I got to sit down and chat with Michael English backstage at a Gaither Homecoming concert on February 12, 2010, and we covered topics from his background, to his testimony, to coming back to the Gaither Vocal Band, to future projects, and much more.

Hope you enjoy it, and thanks to Michael English for taking the time to do this!

    • Thank you for your kind words and readership, Marlene! I can’t believe it’s been over three years since this interview! I was scared to death, but he was so gracious to offer the interview in the first place, and then to take it like he had all the time in the world really meant a lot. He’s been very kind over the years and I look forward to watching his solo career from here.
