Undoubtedly, you have made a “road trip” at some point in your life. Maybe it was a drive to the beach or mountains with the family as a kid…or a parent. You started with a plan, a vehicle and a map, and of course there was always a surprise or two along the way.

That’s a pretty good description of just about every week for many of your favorite CCM artists over the years. They are always headed for the next big concert, and then the unexpected happens!

In this video clip our friend Bill Gaither tells one of those stories about a time when Russ Taff was part of the Gaither Vocal Band. As one who has known Russ for many years, I wish I had been there!

You may have watched Bill Gaither’s Southern Gospel Homecoming videos over the years, but I assure you: Bill Gaither is a CCM icon. He had a huge impact on Don Francisco, Carman, Amy, Sandi, Steve Green, White Heart, and Michael English early in their careers (to name a few).

As a CCM fan, I hope you will read the “We Will Stand” book. It is filled with behind the scenes stories straight from many of the artists and songwriters who have touched your life. And I’m confident you will enjoy the dozens of pictures there as well.
