1 William J. Gaither (born March 28, 1936) is an American singer and songwriter of southern gospel and Contemporary Christian music. He has written numerous popular Christian songs with his wife, Gloria. Besides performing solo and with his wife, Gaither has appeared as part of the Bill Gaither Trio, the Gaither Vocal Band, and as a part of his “Homecoming” groups.
Gaither was born in Alexandria, Indiana in 1936, the son of George and Lela Gaither. He formed his first group, the Bill Gaither Trio (consisting of his sister Mary Ann, and brother Danny) in 1956 while a college student at Anderson College. After graduating from Anderson in 1959, he worked as an English teacher. He married the former Gloria Sickal in 1962. After a few years of trying to manage both a music career and his full time teaching job, he quit his teaching job in 1967 and worked full time in the Christian music industry.

    "In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine named Gaither one of the top 50 richest musicians, with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne and the Grateful Dead. At 71, Gaither was the oldest on the list." !

    Yes, there are two guys with the same name, one is a gospel singer dull, and the other is one of the greatest bluesman of the Delta Blues. We are talking about Bluesman sure. When searching for him, try searching for "Little Bill" Gaither Leroy's Buddy or who are like him is known. Born in 1910 and died in 1970, and was one of the great influences of Robert Johnson, and was influenced by him too. An amazing musician with more than 100 letters. Champ Joe Louis is his most famous song. Sorry for english I'm Brazilian!

    Could anybody tell me who's Bill Gaither? I tried to download a Leroy Carr album and I got one by him. I'm confused about who he is though the songs are great. I've seen some pictures and it seems to exist more than one Bill. Please, if anyone know, I beg of you, tell me.
