Marlin Taylor is our 2nd of four inductees to the Class of 2021 for the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Mr. Taylor is a pioneer in the radio industry. He created the XM radio channel, “Enlighten”, which has revolutionized the Southern Gospel music industry. Mr. Taylor says he is “so very honored to be included in a group with such great and wonderful artists which have gone before who have made this music such a joy, and experience to listen to. It’s God’s music, and I have always had a heart for God’s music.”
