THE MUSIC MEN
Bob Terrell's look at the world of 
Southern Gospel Music.

    "THE MUSIC MEN" is a compelling word tour of Southern Gospel Music history beginning with the James D Vaughan era (just after the American Civil War) and going through the 'Golden Age of Quartets' (The Insps are in that section). Bob's unique insight into THE INSPIRATIONS is in the chapter titled "IT AIN'T PEANUTS."

UPDATE: We have heard that "The Music Men"  is now being reprinted, and we will offer it for sale when it becomes available.
Check the
NEWS PAGE for updates.


2nd Cover

     Bob was a reporter emeritus for the Asheville-Citizen Times (North Carolina). He was a close friend of Dr. Billy Graham and the Graham family; and for many years was the principle (and trusted) writer of many articles on behalf of the Graham ministry which were published in America's newspapers. He also authored books on many subjects ranging from dry, ironic humor, family fiction, to thoughtful well-researched non-fiction.

Bob also wrote a book totally about
The Inspirations first 35 WONDERFUL YEARS!

            NOTE: The Inspirations have been traveling and singing since 1964, so we really don't always remember all the details like: DATES, YEARS, ETC. The articles & books listed here are ones that we do know about. If you know of others, such as the ones published in the now defunct "GOOD NEWS" magazine, (The original SGMA monthly publication), please email the information to RHutchins1@aol.com

We would be forever grateful if you would share that info with us.

Please include name of the publication, the month and year and where we can find a copy.

Special thanks to Helen Hice and Ray Morgan
for their wonderful contributions in our search.
