Are Bill and Gloria Gaither getting divorced?
Bill & Gloria Gaither
with Danny and Mary Ann Gaither
WILLIAM J. GAITHER and GLORIA GAITHER are a married performing and songwriting team, whose business ventures have grown to become a publishing and production juggernaut in the Southern Gospel music industry.
Bill’s specialty has been in the area of singing and composing, whereas Gloria is known more for her abilities as a writer and lyricist.
Initially, both started their careers as teachers before making a full-time living out of music.
the son of George Gaither
Bill Gaither, born 28 March 1936 at Alexandria, Indiana, was the son of George Gaither and Lela Hartwell, and grew up on a rural farm.
From a young age, he and his brother DANNY (born 20 Nov. 1938) would sing together in the community.
Danny was the most capable lead singer, while Bill learned to play the piano.
Bill was especially fascinated by southern gospel music and would collect records, travel to concerts, and listen to radio broadcasts.
In 1950 and into 1951, Bill and Danny were part of a quartet called the Log Cabin Four, with Howard Little and cousin Maurice Gaither (1934–2001).
In 1952, at age 16, he played piano for a young quartet called the Gospel-Aires.
On 11 March 1953, one of Bill’s quartets—made up of Billy Gaither, George Glass, Richard Scott, and Larry Campbell—sang at a high school sports banquet.
and on 3 January 1954, an early version of the Gaither Trio performed at the Alexandria Church of the Nazarene.
consisting of Bill, Danny, and older cousin Arden Gaither (1922–2007).
Bill graduated from Alexandria High School
In 1954, Bill graduated from Alexandria High School and initially set his sights on starting a music career by forming a gospel quartet called the Pathfinders with Charlie Hodge of Decatur.
Alabama, whom he had met at the three-week Stamps School of Music summer program in Dallas, Texas, in 1953 and 1954.
plus Danny Gaither and a young bass singer, Vance Windsor. In one notable highlight, the group met the Golden Keys Quartet while on tour.
and Danny was invited to sing with them on at least one occasion.
Even so, the Pathfinders were short-lived and had an oft-shifting personnel.
Danny, still a high-school student, was replaced by Gene Lowery when school reopened in the fall of 1954.
and the bass part was taken up by Olen “Honey” Dunn after Vance got married and moved to Florida in October.
Over the winter, they picked up singer James Barnett and Bill moved to an accompanist role. Lowery left in May or June of 1955.
August of 1955, with not enough financial success or audience interest to show for their effort, Bill left the group and returned to working for Cox’s grocery store in Anderson.
He enrolled at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana, then transferred the next year to study English at Anderson College, closer to home.

Bill Gaither’s Disobedience to God’s Word
Bill and Gloria Gaither represent the heart and soul of Southern Gospel today.
They are graduates of Anderson College, a Church of God school, and attend a Nazarene church.
They have written some very popular and well-known gospel music.
such as “He Touched Me,” “Thanks to Calvary,” and “There’s Something about That Name.”
Since the early 1990s, the Gaither’s Homecoming video series has dramatically increased the popularity of Southern Gospel music in this generation.
Sadly, the Gaithers have used their vast influence to promote the lie that music is neutral.
and thus to encourage the deep inroads that the world has made into Southern Gospel.
They have also promoted the “non-judgmental” .
heresy and the unscriptural ecumenical movement with its doctrinal tolerance and its lack of concern about doctrinal purity.
Gaither Believes that Music Is Neutral
In the 1980s, Gaither bought in to contemporary Christian music’s foundational premise that “MUSIC IS NEUTRAL”.
and that any type of raunchy music can be used to glorify God.
During a concert tour in New England in 1986, Gaither admitted that he had changed his musical style due to the influence of the “world’s culture.”
It is a clear example of the Bible’s warning that “evil communications corrupt good manners”.
(1 Cor. 15:33). Gaither said he believes there is a place for Christian rock, expressing his philosophy of music in these words:
“God speaks through all different kinds of art forms and musical styles and musical forms” and the “format itself is not necessarily spiritual or non-spiritual” (FBF News Bulletin, March-April 1986, p. 3).
The following is an eyewitness description of the Gaither’s appearance at the Southern Baptist Convention in St. Louis in 1980:
Bill Gaither and Rome: The Ecumenical Philosophy
Bill Gaither has had an ecumenical philosophy from the beginning of his musical career. In his autobiography “It’s More Than the Music,”
he states that one of the fringe benefits of playing their concerts in “neutral, nonchurch environments” was that people from “all church denominations”
attended. “Before long, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, charismatics, Catholics, and Pentecostals were all praising the Lord together.
Subtly, the walls between denominations began to crumble…” (p. 115).
Since 1991, she has served as a performer, recording artist, songwriter, scriptwriter and narrator for the Gaither Homecoming series of television broadcasts.
video and DVD releases, and audio recordings.
