From the resources at the SGMA Research Library, we have a look at the Singing News chart from this month, January, 1983….37 years ago!

We always think of the #1 song, but what was the #2 song that month? Well, from the vinyl collection at the SGMA Research Library, we bring you the song that was number 2 that month…and the month before that. It was the Insprirations with “Thery’re Holding Up The Ladder!” The song comes from the Canaan Records LP, “Someday.”

From Singing News-January 1983

The Inspirations is based in Bryson City, NC. The quartet began in 1964 when Martin Cook, a teacher at Swain County High School, invited several young men to his home for evenings of singing. The group began traveling to gospel singings. Decades later they continue to make albums with a traditional gospel sound.

This quick journey down memory lane, is thanks to the Southern Gospel Music Association.  The organization works tirelessly to preserve the heritage and history of southern gospel music.
