    Default Bluegrass Gospel

    Hey all, looking for some good bluegrass gospel bands. I know bluegrass and gospel kind'a go hand in hand, but looking for some gospel only bands. Love Paul Williams & the Victory Trio. Looking for others. Any help would be appreciated!!!

    Though retired for a while now check out the Lewis Family Bluegrass Band. Lots of YouTube videos of them. Little Roy Lewis was quite the musician and entertainer. I used to see them in Texas and they always put on a great show.

    Not a current band, but if you want to hear what I consider the top BG gospel recordings, check out Monroe's A Voice From On High and several Stanley Brothers albums.

    I may get some kickback about them being "bluegrassy" enough, but the Isaacs produce some great music.

    Check out The Churchmen if you haven't already. They have been together for 30 + years and still tour and record.

    There’s a Bill Monroe album on Apple Music called “The Gospel Spirit”. It is nothing short of amazing.
