The Best Southern Gospel Bands/Artists

While there are tons of fantastic Southern gospel artists, some are just better than others. This list is designed to let the fans of Southern gospel separate the absolute best Southern gospel singers and groups from the chafe.

From the names Dottie Rambo and Doug Oldham to the Imperials and Anthony Burger, this list includes all of your favorite Southern gospel musicians (bother newer and old school) and serves as an accurate compilation of the best examples of Southern gospel, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, how to get into Southern gospel music. 

Who are the best southern gospel bands of all time? And who is the greatest southern gospel musician ever? Whether you’re a devout follower of Southern gospel or a new convert, please vote for the top Southern gospel artists, quartets, and family Southern gospel singing groups below, rather than simply voting for the most famous Southern gospel singers or bands whom you might've heard of but never actually listened to.
