Main article: Gospel Song (19th century). The first published use of the term "Gospel Song" probably appeared in 1874 when Philip Bliss released a songbook entitled Gospel Songs. A Choice Collection of Hymns and Tunes. It was used to describe a new style of church music, songs that were easy to grasp and more easily singable than the traditional church hymns, which came out of the mass revival movement starting with Dwight L. Moody, whose musician was Ira D. Sankey, as well as the movement. 1920s were running heavy competition for Vaughan. The 1920s also saw the marketing of gospel records by groups such as the Carter Family

Krauss and The Cox Family won a Grammy for Best Southern, Country Or Bluegrass Gospel Album. Patty Griffin: ‘Up To The Mountain (MLK Song)’. Country singer Patty Griffin has written two fine modern gospel songs, ‘Heavenly Day’ and ‘Up To The Mountain (MLK Song)’, the latter of which was covered by Susan Boyle. Griffin went on to make a gospel album with The Staple Singers, called Downtown Church, which was recorded in the Downtown Presbyterian Church in Nashville. Fanny Crosby, who was known as the Queen Of Gospel Song Writers, wrote this song in 1868. More than a century later, it was recorded by Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan, who is thought to have learned his version from The Stanley Brothers. In the late 70s and early 80s, Dylan also released a so-called Christian Trilogy of albums, including Saved, which features his own songs, such as ‘Precious Angel’.

The Lewis Family is a family of gospel and bluegrass musicians from Lincolnton, Georgia. They are known as the "First Family of Bluegrass Gospel". The family was founded by Pop and Mom Lewis (Roy Lewis Sr. and Pauline Lewis, née Holloway), who married in 1925. Later that year, they did their first recording sessions, released on Sullivan Records. In 1954, they were offered a slot performing weekly on a television show in Augusta, Georgia, where they would appear until 1992. They began recording for Starday Records in 1957 and continued recording prolifically for Canaan, Riversong, Daywind, and others; they have released nearly 60 albums. The Lewis Family started touring regularly in the 1960s, continuing into the 2000s; several generations of family members have entered the group as time passed.

I was honestly looking for a similar "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" sound - and this surprisingly fit the bill. The songs are obviously religious, but I really enjoy that "old way" sound that the movie captured so well.
