If you’re interested in Christian Music, take note. Tonight, October 12, at 8:30 pm eastern time you can watch an online stream of a so-called “Concert of the Decade” being held in Nashville to support the Gospel Music Association. The lineup is impressive: Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Casting Crowns, MercyMe, Kirk Franklin, Natalie Grant, Point of Grace, plus a handful of gospel artists. Visit www.concertofthedecade.com to access the stream.

In case you’re wondering, the GMA is a trade organization that promotes and advocates for what I usually call Christian music but they call gospel music. They’re the group that puts on the annual Dove Awards and GMA week. They’ve been hard-hit by the industry downturn and this event is a response, along with a complete organizational restructuring and the resignation of longtime president John Styll.
