Musicians, ministers, evangelical churches, music promoters, recording studios, and radio made southwestern Ohio an epicenter for sacred bluegrass. Worship services, revivals, homecomings, church concerts, WPFB’s Hymns from the Hills and WYSO’s Rise When the Rooster Crows played sacred bluegrass music. The Brown’s Ferry Four and King’s Sacred Quartet recorded at King. Shannon Grayson, Flatt and Scruggs, Jim and Jesse, Reno and Smiley, Sonny Osborne, Red Allen, the Stanley Brothers, Moore and Napier, and J.D. Jarvis also recorded in Cincinnati. Lillimae Haney Whitaker headed the Dixie Gospel-Aires. The Boys from Indiana, Joe Isaacs, and Larry Sparks had gospel releases. Pastors Kash Amburgy, Norm Livingston, and Lawrence Bishop promoted gospel singing. The Southwestern Ohio Bluegrass Music Heritage Project lists thirty-one other regional gospel artists at swohiobluegrass.com.
