Dove and Grammy Award winning Christian artist Michael English begins a new journey after 5 years with Gaither Vocal Band

For immediate release (November 1, 2013)

With prayerful consideration and after 5 award winning years with Southern Gospel super group, the Gaither Vocal Band, lead vocalist Michael English has decided to step away from the group to pursue other opportunities.

English says, "It was difficult to juggle two careers and I needed more time at home... off the road."

This move will give Michael more time to dedicate to his solo tour, sharing his testimony, and recording and producing with other artists as well.

"The last 5 years with the GVB have been very enjoyable for me and I will miss the guys. This was a very difficult decision but one I feel at peace with. It will be a new day for Michael English but one I am very excited about. Hope to see many of you at solo shows in the future!"

Log onto Michael’s website at to view his current touring schedule. We are beginning to book solo shows for 2014 and they are going fast!
