Welcome to another edition of Wacky Wednesday. SGN Scoops has polled about 18 artists about various things and received their answers. We have used this (not so much) scientific process to tabulate the Wacky Wednesday Top Ten (more or less)!
Today our subject is: What can someone new to Southern Gospel expect at a concert?
Our panel of expert artists gave us the following answers. These are not in any particular order. Do you agree/disagree?
Our first set of artists all gave very positive responses….
Billy Blackwood…It’s supposed to be fun!
Michaela Brown…You’ll leave feeling good!
Karen Peck…It’s very uplifting
Gary Casto…Best music in the world
David Sutton…You will be blessed
Greg Bentley…It’s life changing!
Booth Brothers1*…Be ready to clap your hands and have a good time!
Booth Brothers 3*…You’ll have a hand-clapping, foot-stomping time!
And then there were very specific comments…
Joseph Habedank…Christian artists are much more accessible than secular artists.
Lauren Talley Alvey…Our genre offers something for everyone, regardless of age or background. Most artists I know really care about people and ministry, and we aim to deliver a message each time we step on stage.
Phil Collingsworth Sr. …Our songwriters are highly esteemed
Don’t worry about the concerts being Age Appropriate…
Shannon Smith…The genre is VERY diverse and you’ll like it a lot more than you think you will (especially if you’re young and have been biased against the genre). Give it a chance – there’s a lot to love!
Chris Jenkins…Yes, individuals under 40 love Southern Gospel too!
Donna King…It’s NOT old people music. It’s for EVERYBODY!
Have you heard these comments before?
Booth Brothers2*…Someone will think it’s too loud
Clayton Inman…Could get a little loud
I hope you go to concerts to hear the singing because…
Scott Inman…There will a lot of singing
Hannah Webb…Be prepared for at least five encores by the end of the concert 🙂

Stay tuned for more of these indepth polls right here on SGN Scoops!
**Note: The Booth Brothers each answered each question but wouldn’t say whose answer it was…therefore we are leaving it up to you, dear reader, to guess whether the pithy answer comes from Michael Booth, Ronnie Booth or Paul Lancaster!
