The Southern-Aires were organized in 1955 at a time when a "new" music was beginning to
sweep the country.  

The music was to become known as "Southern-Gospel."  As it's popularity spread, so did the
popularity of the
Southern-Aires.

The demand for personal appearances took them all over the eastern United States and into
foreign countries.

 
From small rural churches to large municipal auditoriums and all points in between.

The Southern-Aires:




















A few noted highlights of the more than 58 years of The Southern-Aires ministry:

  •  They have recorded more than 40 albums with two new releases scheduled.

  • They were the first Christian group to participate in a Southern-Gospel concert in Jerusalem, Israel in 1970.

  • The group has introduced numerous song to Gospel Music, including "I'll see you in the Rapture" and "I'll Never be  
the Same Anymore," which received world-wide acclaim.

While they are proud of their past accomplishments and rich heritage, they are even more excited about what
God is doing now, and into the future.  They want to see Christians encouraged and the Church strengthened so
the community can be reached for Christ.
