  • we would have them stop by the house,
  • 00:10:02.130 --> 00:10:05.080
  • and, um, Gary McSpadden
  • 00:10:05.090 --> 00:10:07.190
  • was with The Imperials
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:09.020
  • and Jim Murray was with The Imperials.
  • 00:10:09.030 --> 00:10:11.060
  • They stopped by the house
  • 00:10:11.070 --> 00:10:12.290
  • and Gloria fed them real good,
  • 00:10:13.000 --> 00:10:15.110
  • and they got their bellies full,
  • 00:10:15.120 --> 00:10:17.180
  • and I took them in 'round the piano
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:19.140
  • and said, "I've just written a new song
  • 00:10:19.150 --> 00:10:21.280
  • I want you to listen to,"
  • 00:10:21.290 --> 00:10:23.140
  • and I showed them "He Touched Me,"
  • 00:10:23.150 --> 00:10:25.060
  • and--and I tell you what: this song cost me, though.
  • 00:10:25.070 --> 00:10:28.080
  • We had just planted-- uh, we had a new house,
  • 00:10:28.090 --> 00:10:32.040
  • and we just sodded our front yard--true story.
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:35.210
  • And that little rascal took his golf clubs
  • 00:10:35.220 --> 00:10:38.080
  • and went out on my new sod...
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:40.100
  • [laughter]
  • 00:10:40.110 --> 00:10:42.070
  • And cut it all to pieces.
  • 00:10:42.080 --> 00:10:44.270
  • But--but they rec-- but they recorded the tune,
  • 00:10:44.280 --> 00:10:49.040
  • and they got it to Elvis,
  • 00:10:49.050 --> 00:10:50.190
  • and it was pretty cheap piece of sodding, really.
  • 00:10:50.200 --> 00:10:53.080
  • - And you got it redone, right?
  • 00:10:53.090 --> 00:10:54.210
  • It's okay.
  • 00:10:54.220 --> 00:10:56.080
  • - Uh, we've made up since then,
  • 00:10:56.090 --> 00:10:57.250
  • but--but this is a song
  • 00:10:57.260 --> 00:10:59.280
  • that I had everybody--
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:01.100
  • every new Vocal Band to do it.
  • 00:11:01.110 --> 00:11:03.100
  • [slow piano music]
  • 00:11:03.110 --> 00:11:05.180
  • Yeah.
  • 00:11:05.190 --> 00:11:08.040
  • This is gonna be good.
  • 00:11:08.050 --> 00:11:09.110
  • Are you g--ready? Here we go.
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:10.160
  • "Shackled by a heavy burden."
  • 00:11:10.170 --> 00:11:12.280
  • - Shackled by a heavy burden,
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:22.280
  • 'neath a load of guilt and shame...
  • 00:11:22.290 --> 00:11:31.140
  • - Then the hand of Jesus.
  • 00:11:31.150 --> 00:11:33.100
  • - Then the hand of Jesus touched me...
  • 00:11:33.110 --> 00:11:39.200
  • Bill: Here we go. The tight harmony.
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:42.080
  • - And now I am no longer the same.
  • 00:11:42.090 --> 00:11:48.290
  • Bill: Eat your heart out, Oak Ridge Boys.
  • 00:11:49.000 --> 00:11:50.230
  • That's really good.
  • 00:11:50.240 --> 00:11:52.220
  • - He touched me.
  • 00:11:52.230 --> 00:11:55.170
  • Oh, He touched me,
  • 00:11:55.180 --> 00:12:02.110
  • and oh, the joy that floods my soul!
  • 00:12:02.120 --> 00:12:13.120
  • Something happened, and now I know,
  • 00:12:13.130 --> 00:12:23.130
  • He touched me and made me whole.

  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:33.000
  • - Gary McSpadden.
  • 00:12:33.010 --> 00:12:34.100
  • - And since I met this blessed Savior...
  • 00:12:34.110 --> 00:12:41.240
  • 00:12:41.250 --> 00:12:45.020
  • Since He cleansed and made me whole,
  • 00:12:45.030 --> 00:12:51.290
  • well, I will never cease,
  • 00:12:52.000 --> 00:12:58.150
  • never cease to praise Him.
  • 00:12:58.160 --> 00:13:04.070
  • I'll shout it while eternity rolls.
  • 00:13:04.080 --> 00:13:12.130
  • - Oh, He touched me.
  • 00:13:12.140 --> 00:13:17.130

  • in the dead of night.
  • 00:16:09.230 --> 00:16:12.160

  • 00:19:33.240 --> 00:19:35.220
  • - So we're really excited to be here.
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:41.150
  • We came all the way from Texas
  • 00:19:41.160 --> 00:19:43.160
  • to see the Vocal Band.
  • 00:19:43.170 --> 00:19:44.250
  • We've been to tens of concerts
  • 00:19:44.260 --> 00:19:46.230
  • to see them with different lineups,
  • 00:19:46.240 --> 00:19:48.210
  • and we're just so happy
  • 00:19:48.220 --> 00:19:50.000
  • that the entire group is here
  • 00:19:50.010 --> 00:19:51.250
  • to see all of our favorite past members
  • 00:19:51.260 --> 00:19:53.170
  • and the current group.
  • 00:19:53.180 --> 00:19:55.030
  • - Yeah, we're from, uh, New Bern, North Carolina.
  • 00:19:55.040 --> 00:19:57.160
  • Um, we have loved the Gaithers for many, many years.
  • 00:19:57.170 --> 00:20:00.070
  • It's one of the reasons--
  • 00:20:00.080 --> 00:20:01.160
  • it's kind of what drew us together
  • 00:20:01.170 --> 00:20:03.000
  • before we were married.
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:04.120
  • This, uh, concert has been special to us
  • 00:20:04.130 --> 00:20:07.100
  • because we love the hymns,
  • 00:20:07.110 --> 00:20:09.020
  • and you don't hear a lot of hymns anymore,
  • 00:20:09.030 --> 00:20:11.040
  • and the way that Bill can just kind of orchestrate
  • 00:20:11.050 --> 00:20:14.010
  • and the artists can just freestyle
  • 00:20:14.020 --> 00:20:16.050
  • and, uh-- and just sing hymns
  • 00:20:16.060 --> 00:20:18.000
  • and draw the rest of the crowd in--
  • 00:20:18.010 --> 00:20:20.010
  • very special.
  • 00:20:20.020 --> 00:20:21.140
  • - All of our favorite people in one place,
  • 00:20:21.150 --> 00:20:23.010
  • so it's been really nice.
  • 00:20:23.020 --> 00:20:24.120
  • - Yeah. Very good time.
  • 00:20:24.130 --> 00:20:25.120
  • both: Yeah.
  • 00:20:25.130 --> 00:20:26.130
  • - I'm from Chesnee,
  • 00:20:26.140 --> 00:20:27.190
  • South Carolina,
  • 00:20:27.200 --> 00:20:28.270
  • and I just want to say that this has been a--
  • 00:20:28.280 --> 00:20:32.160
  • beyond any typical, normal concert experience.
  • 00:20:32.170 --> 00:20:37.210
  • I mean, just perfect, perfect.
  • 00:20:37.220 --> 00:20:39.240
  • I want to thank Bill Gaither for doing this.
  • 00:20:39.250 --> 00:20:42.150
  • This has been awesome.
  • 00:20:42.160 --> 00:20:45.050
  • - Deep within, the heart has always known
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:52.190
  • that there is freedom
  • 00:20:52.200 --> 00:20:56.200
  • somehow breathed into
  • 00:20:56.210 --> 00:21:00.040
  • the very soul of life.
  • 00:21:00.050 --> 00:21:09.190
  • The prisoner, the powerless,
  • 00:21:09.200 --> 00:21:15.240
  • the slave have always known it.
  • 00:21:15.250 --> 00:21:21.210
  • There's something that keeps reaching
  • 00:21:21.220 --> 00:21:26.260
  • for the sky.
  • 00:21:26.270 --> 00:21:34.000
  • - And even life begins
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:39.080
  • because a baby fights for freedom,
  • 00:21:39.090 --> 00:21:46.080
  • and songs we love to sing
  • 00:21:46.090 --> 00:21:51.040
  • have freedom's theme.
  • 00:21:51.050 --> 00:21:58.290
  • - Some have walked through fire and flood
  • 00:21:59.000 --> 00:22:04.240
  • to find a place of freedom,
  • 00:22:04.250 --> 00:22:10.170
  • and some faced hell itself
  • 00:22:10.180 --> 00:22:15.150
  • for freedom's dream.
  • 00:22:15.160 --> 00:22:21.060
  • Let freedom ring
  • 00:22:21.070 --> 00:22:25.170
  • wherever minds know
  • 00:22:25.180 --> 00:22:27.260
  • what it means to be in chains.
  • 00:22:27.270 --> 00:22:33.210
  • Let freedom ring

  • and He meant for us to all be free and whole.
  • 00:23:34.010 --> 00:23:45.220
  • Oh, but when my Lord bought freedom
  • 00:23:45.230 --> 00:23:51.220
  • through the blood of His redemption,
  • 00:23:51.230 --> 00:23:57.260

  • 00:24:09.160 --> 00:24:17.200

  • this hallelujah anthem of the free,
  • 00:24:22.260 --> 00:24:35.230
  • that iron bars and heavy chains
  • 00:24:35.240 --> 00:24:41.190
  • can never hold us captive.
  • 00:24:41.200 --> 00:24:47.260
  • The Son has made us free and free indeed.
  • 00:24:47.270 --> 00:24:58.290
  • Let freedom ring down through the ages
  • 00:24:59.000 --> 00:25:08.110

  • Bill: Why not?
  • 00:26:51.110 --> 00:26:53.210
  • Why not? Praise the Lord.

  • [laughs]
  • 00:26:59.290 --> 00:27:01.260
  • Whoo!
  • 00:27:01.270 --> 00:27:03.250
  • [gentle music]
  • 00:27:08.180 --> 00:27:10.060
  • This is a David Phelps arrangement,
  • 00:27:10.070 --> 00:27:13.230
  • and, uh--and--and
  • 00:27:13.240 --> 00:27:16.120
  • it's been one of the songs that people ask.
  • 00:27:16.130 --> 00:27:19.030
  • In fact, we sang this
  • 00:27:19.040 --> 00:27:21.020
  • at Cliff Barrows' funeral,
  • 00:27:21.030 --> 00:27:24.150
  • and, uh, this is one of his favorite songs
  • 00:27:24.160 --> 00:27:27.060
  • that we did,
  • 00:27:27.070 --> 00:27:28.290
  • and at the funeral, I had a chance to--
  • 00:27:29.000 --> 00:27:31.110
  • uh, everybody was telling stuff about Cliff.
  • 00:27:31.120 --> 00:27:34.090
  • Cliff loved, uh, real tight male harmony,
  • 00:27:34.100 --> 00:27:38.220
  • and when the Vocal Band first learned this,
  • 00:27:38.230 --> 00:27:41.070
  • we were singing at a Billy Graham crusade
  • 00:27:41.080 --> 00:27:43.160
  • in Dallas,
  • 00:27:43.170 --> 00:27:44.260
  • and so before we went on, I said,
  • 00:27:44.270 --> 00:27:46.170
  • "Cliff, you gotta hear this song."
  • 00:27:46.180 --> 00:27:48.120
  • There is nowhere you can sing
  • 00:27:48.130 --> 00:27:50.230
  • with acoustics as good...
  • 00:27:50.240 --> 00:27:53.280
  • as a shower...
  • 00:27:53.290 --> 00:27:55.130
  • [laughter]
  • 00:27:55.140 --> 00:27:56.260
  • 'Cause there's so much hard surface.
  • 00:27:56.270 --> 00:27:59.210
  • So Bev--George Bev Shea
  • 00:27:59.220 --> 00:28:02.180
  • and, uh, Cliff Barrows
  • 00:28:02.190 --> 00:28:04.130
  • went in the shower,
  • 00:28:04.140 --> 00:28:06.070
  • and we sang this song to them.
  • 00:28:06.080 --> 00:28:09.080
  • We are probably the only living people
  • 00:28:09.090 --> 00:28:11.090
  • who sang in the shower
  • 00:28:11.100 --> 00:28:12.190
  • with Beverly Shea and Cliff Barrows.
  • 00:28:12.200 --> 00:28:16.120
  • Okay, uh, I'm in the bass part,
  • 00:28:16.130 --> 00:28:17.280
  • and--and we need to do this in a horseshoe
  • 00:28:17.290 --> 00:28:20.100
  • so we can see each other.
  • 00:28:20.110 --> 00:28:21.210
  • Now, David, uh, are you in a right place for this?
  • 00:28:21.220 --> 00:28:24.190
  • But--but--but this is--
  • 00:28:24.200 --> 00:28:27.060
  • this is so good.
  • 00:28:27.070 --> 00:28:29.090
  • [laughter]
  • 00:28:29.100 --> 00:28:31.160
  • I can sense the excitement of you.
  • 00:28:31.170 --> 00:28:33.160
  • Here we go.
  • 00:28:33.170 --> 00:28:34.190
  • One, two, three...
  • 00:28:34.200 --> 00:28:36.210
  • - O Love that will not let me go,
  • 00:28:36.220 --> 00:28:44.060
  • I rest my weary soul in Thee.
  • 00:28:44.070 --> 00:28:51.130
  • I give Thee back the life I owe,
  • 00:28:51.140 --> 00:29:00.280
  • that in Thine ocean depths its flow
  • 00:29:00.290 --> 00:29:07.160
  • may richer, fuller be.
  • 00:29:07.170 --> 00:29:16.220
  • O Love that will not let me go,
  • 00:29:16.230 --> 00:29:22.220
  • O Joy that seekest me through pain,
  • 00:29:22.230 --> 00:29:31.250
  • I cannot close my heart to Thee.
  • 00:29:31.260 --> 00:29:41.030
  • I trace the rainbow through the rain
  • 00:29:41.040 --> 00:29:51.220
  • and feel the promise is not vain,
  • 00:29:51.230 --> 00:30:00.080
  • that morn shall tearless be.
  • 00:30:00.090 --> 00:30:10.110
  • O Love that will not let me go,

  • O Cross that liftest up my head
  • 00:30:17.220 --> 00:30:25.230
  • I dare not ask to fly from Thee.
  • 00:30:25.240 --> 00:30:34.220
  • I lay in dust life's glory, dead,
  • 00:30:34.230 --> 00:30:45.210
  • and from the ground there blossoms red
