The Gaithers and Southern Gospel

University Press of Mississippi

Chapter five picks up chronologically where chapter one ended: the turn of the century. It focuses on what happens as the Homecomings leave the American South, when a number of the gospel “legends” to whom the early videos pay tribute die. When the Gaithers have a decade’s worth of Homecoming social capital at their backs, they demonstrate the ability to more explicitly push at the demographic boundaries of their fan base.
