Southern gospel music has been around since the late 19th century, with family acts that carry on across generations. By the 1990s, the genre began to expand to include duos and soloists, bringing '90s southern gospel into a more modern sound.
Thanks to a mix of big families and individual singers striking it out on their own, a list of '90s southern gospel bands and artists has some overlap between entries. Vocalists like David Phelps have released their own solo albums but also are part of larger groups, like the Gaither Vocal Band. Many southern gospel artists, like Vestal Goodman, had already been making music for decades before the '90s, putting out work right alongside new acts like Greater Vision, which was founded in 1990. This mix of skills, styles, and talent made for a rich tapestry of gospel music in the '90s.
We've put together a list of some of the best '90s southern gospel bands and artists, but if there are any missing singers, quartets, or bands, be sure to add them to the list and vote up the best southern gospel acts of the 1990s.
