  • 00:05:35.260 --> 00:05:37.140
  • - And every time we went down there to Lakeland,
  • 00:05:37.150 --> 00:05:39.090
  • we had people saying, "When are you
  • 00:05:39.100 --> 00:05:40.210
  • gonna have the Booth Brothers?"
  • 00:05:40.220 --> 00:05:42.000
  • And I said, "Who are the Booth Brothers?"
  • 00:05:42.010 --> 00:05:43.200
  • [laughter]
  • 00:05:43.210 --> 00:05:45.150

  • 00:05:57.290 --> 00:05:59.220
  • rightfully so, they had a huge influence on us.
  • 00:05:59.230 --> 00:06:02.160
  • - Sure.
  • 00:06:02.170 --> 00:06:03.250
  • - Hearing how the-- the way they blend and swell
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:07.150
  • and the phrasing and vibratos
  • 00:06:07.160 --> 00:06:09.270
  • and all those little details that they would do,
  • 00:06:09.280 --> 00:06:13.130
  • we would implement and put into our stuff.
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:16.080
  • - Larry's been to many of our tapings,
  • 00:06:16.090 --> 00:06:19.180

  • the taping that we did in Nashville at the Opry House.
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:24.210
  • And I think you acknowledged him
  • 00:06:24.220 --> 00:06:26.200
  • before you sang this old Albert Brumley classic.
  • 00:06:26.210 --> 00:06:29.060

  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:30.070

  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:12.100
  • - That was our first time to meet the guys.
  • 00:10:21.050 --> 00:10:23.160
  • - Are you serious?
  • 00:10:23.170 --> 00:10:24.270
  • - One of the great things about this Homecoming bunch
  • 00:10:24.280 --> 00:10:28.070
  • is to be able to meet our heroes like that--
  • 00:10:28.080 --> 00:10:31.070
  • the Gatlins, the Statler Brothers,
  • 00:10:31.080 --> 00:10:32.230
  • Oak Ridge Boys in the country field.
  • 00:10:32.240 --> 00:10:34.190
  • And then James and Hovie and Jake and Vestal
  • 00:10:34.200 --> 00:10:37.290
  • and having become close friends with Anthony Burger
  • 00:10:38.000 --> 00:10:41.090
  • and all--just-- Bill Gaither.
  • 00:10:41.100 --> 00:10:44.240
  • [laughter]
  • 00:10:44.250 --> 00:10:46.110
  • - Was that on the cue card or anything?
  • 00:10:46.120 --> 00:10:48.140
  • [laughter]
  • 00:10:48.150 --> 00:10:51.010
  • - That's great.
  • 00:10:51.020 --> 00:10:52.070
  • - I love how people come up, and they say,
  • 00:10:52.080 --> 00:10:54.190
  • "Are you guys having as much fun
  • 00:10:54.200 --> 00:10:56.070
  • as it looks like you are having?"
  • 00:10:56.080 --> 00:10:57.260
  • And I tell them, "The camera captures a lot,
  • 00:10:57.270 --> 00:11:00.190
  • but not--it can't capture all the fun that we're having."
  • 00:11:00.200 --> 00:11:03.240
  • It's amazing.
  • 00:11:03.250 --> 00:11:05.010
  • - Speaking of famous people, you helped us do
  • 00:11:05.020 --> 00:11:07.030
  • one of the bluegrass tapings that we did.
  • 00:11:07.040 --> 00:11:09.150
  • Wonderful setting, and there were some
  • 00:11:09.160 --> 00:11:12.010
  • pretty heavyweights sitting in the crowd
  • 00:11:12.020 --> 00:11:13.280
  • hearing you sing that day too.
  • 00:11:13.290 --> 00:11:15.040
  • Vince Gill was one of them.
  • 00:11:15.050 --> 00:11:16.070
  • - Vince Gill was-- - No pressure.
  • 00:11:16.080 --> 00:11:17.210
  • - Yeah, that's another thing about these videos is,
  • 00:11:17.220 --> 00:11:19.260
  • you start singing, and then you look around
  • 00:11:19.270 --> 00:11:21.250
  • at who's around you, and it makes you step it up.
  • 00:11:21.260 --> 00:11:25.150
  • - I can remember him saying that day, he said,
  • 00:11:25.160 --> 00:11:27.170
  • "Man, this field is full of great singers."
  • 00:11:27.180 --> 00:11:29.270
  • And that is true.
  • 00:11:29.280 --> 00:11:30.270
  • The gospel field has a lot of--
  • 00:11:30.280 --> 00:11:32.170
  • a lot of great talent.
  • 00:11:32.180 --> 00:11:34.050
  • Well, let's go to the bluegrass taping
  • 00:11:34.060 --> 00:11:36.090
  • and see your singing there.
  • 00:11:36.100 --> 00:11:38.140
  • [gentle acoustic music]
  • 00:11:38.150 --> 00:11:40.140
  • - It was early in the morning,
  • 00:11:40.150 --> 00:11:43.190
  • and a stillness filled the garden where He lay.
  • 00:11:43.200 --> 00:11:52.000
  • Then the ground shook with power,
  • 00:11:52.010 --> 00:11:55.110
  • as the angels came and rolled the stone away.
  • 00:11:55.120 --> 00:12:02.010
  • All the glory of the living God
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:08.050
  • broke through to the darkness of the tomb.
  • 00:12:08.060 --> 00:12:16.050
  • And the love of the Father came
  • 00:12:16.060 --> 00:12:19.180
  • and filled every corner of the room.
  • 00:12:19.190 --> 00:12:24.210
  • all: Love was in the room,
  • 00:12:28.250 --> 00:12:31.040
  • and new life was born where only death had been.
  • 00:12:31.050 --> 00:12:36.200
  • Love was in the room,
  • 00:12:40.230 --> 00:12:43.100
  • and death and hell would never reign again.
  • 00:12:43.110 --> 00:12:48.250
  • 00:12:48.260 --> 00:12:51.240
  • When the glory of the living God
  • 00:12:51.250 --> 00:12:55.250
  • broke through to the darkness of the tomb,
  • 00:12:55.260 --> 00:13:03.160
  • the Earth was filled with His beauty,
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:07.270
  • and love was in the room.
  • 00:13:07.280 --> 00:13:12.140
  • - I was trapped in sin and weakness,
  • 00:13:24.120 --> 00:13:27.280
  • sinking ever deeper day by day.
  • 00:13:27.290 --> 00:13:34.080
  • Then the blessed Holy Spirit came to touch my heart
  • 00:13:36.040 --> 00:13:41.090
  • and roll the stone away.
  • 00:13:41.100 --> 00:13:45.190
  • All the glory of the living God
  • 00:13:48.010 --> 00:13:51.200
  • broke through to the darkness of the tomb,
  • 00:13:51.210 --> 00:13:59.250
  • and the love of the Father came
  • 00:13:59.260 --> 00:14:03.200
  • and filled every corner of my room.
  • 00:14:03.210 --> 00:14:12.180
  • all: Love was in the room,
  • 00:14:12.190 --> 00:14:14.280
  • and new life was born where only death had been.
  • 00:14:14.290 --> 00:14:21.140
  • Love was in the room,
  • 00:14:24.100 --> 00:14:27.040
  • and death and hell would never reign again.
  • 00:14:27.050 --> 00:14:32.270
  • Oh, no.
  • 00:14:32.280 --> 00:14:35.230
  • When the glory of the living God
  • 00:14:35.240 --> 00:14:39.030
  • broke through to the darkness of the tomb,
  • 00:14:39.040 --> 00:14:47.050
  • the Earth was filled with His beauty,
  • 00:14:47.060 --> 00:14:52.150
  • and love was in the room.
  • 00:14:52.160 --> 00:14:56.240
  • When the glory of the living God
  • 00:14:59.180 --> 00:15:02.260
  • broke through to the darkness of the tomb,
  • 00:15:02.270 --> 00:15:10.280
  • the Earth was filled with His beauty...
  • 00:15:10.290 --> 00:15:15.250
  • - And love is in my room.
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:21.140
  • all: Love was in the room.
  • 00:15:23.250 --> 00:15:32.200
  • Love was in the room.
  • 00:15:32.210 --> 00:15:41.060
  • Love was in the room.
  • 00:15:41.070 --> 00:15:54.040
  • [cheers and applause]

  • [laughter]
  • 00:15:56.000 --> 00:15:59.010
  • See, Mosie started writing in '45,
  • 00:15:59.020 --> 00:16:00.170
  • all those convention tunes.
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:01.270
  • I was down on my knees, down on my knees.
  • 00:16:01.280 --> 00:16:04.110
  • And a lot of those fun songs.
  • 00:16:04.120 --> 00:16:06.010
  • In the '50s, he started writing stuff likeHow Long Has It Been
  • 00:16:06.020 --> 00:16:10.190
  • and Till the Storm Passes Ov and Where No Man Stands Alon.
  • 00:16:10.200 --> 00:16:14.150
  • And he was our hero too.
  • 00:16:14.160 --> 00:16:16.050
  • And your dad was smart by saying,
  • 00:16:16.060 --> 00:16:18.000
  • "If we're gonna sing..." What?
  • 00:16:18.010 --> 00:16:19.120
  • - He said, "We'll start"--
  • 00:16:19.130 --> 00:16:20.160
  • 'cause we were friends with Mosie;
  • 00:16:20.170 --> 00:16:21.280
  • he was, in that relationship--
  • 00:16:21.290 --> 00:16:23.050
  • he said, "Let's call Mosie."
  • 00:16:23.060 --> 00:16:24.100
  • And we started singing all of his songs--
  • 00:16:24.110 --> 00:16:25.280
  • How Long Has It Been,
  • 00:16:25.290 --> 00:16:26.280
  • Good-bye, World, Good-bye.
  • 00:16:26.290 --> 00:16:28.030
  • And again, it set an internal bar
  • 00:16:28.040 --> 00:16:31.280
  • to measure songs in the future.
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:34.130
  • And we may record one,
  • 00:16:34.140 --> 00:16:35.270
  • and we realized once we started singing it,
  • 00:16:35.280 --> 00:16:37.210
  • like, it didn't quite hit the mark of aMy Jesus Knows
  • 00:16:37.220 --> 00:16:40.190
  • orHow Long Has It Been.
  • 00:16:40.200 --> 00:16:41.290
  • So we would learn, in the future,
  • 00:16:42.000 --> 00:16:43.290
  • how to weigh them against the great songs.
  • 00:16:44.000 --> 00:16:47.040
  • - No better standard than Mosie Lister.
  • 00:16:47.050 --> 00:16:49.200
  • And probably one of his greatest was this song that I--
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:53.070
  • I think the first time I heard it, Jake Hess sang it.
  • 00:16:53.080 --> 00:16:56.050
  • Lari Goss did the arrangement of this,
  • 00:16:56.060 --> 00:16:58.020
  • and you're doing this nightly on your programs.
  • 00:16:58.030 --> 00:17:01.170
  • Here is Mosie Lister's classic Then I Met the Master.
  • 00:17:01.180 --> 00:17:05.230
  • [gentle humming]
  • 00:17:05.240 --> 00:17:08.000
  • - Like a babe when it cries for its mother,
  • 00:17:08.010 --> 00:17:18.090
  • like a child, I was helpless, alone.
  • 00:17:18.100 --> 00:17:28.140
  • Then I met the Master.
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:38.210
  • Now I am one of His own.
  • 00:17:38.220 --> 00:17:49.030
  • all: For all things were changed when He found me.
  • 00:17:49.040 --> 00:17:59.110
  • A new day broke through all around me,
  • 00:17:59.120 --> 00:18:09.250
  • for I met the Master.
  • 00:18:09.260 --> 00:18:20.030

  • - Like a blind man who walks in the darkness,
  • 00:18:50.220 --> 00:19:00.280
  • I had longed, I had searched for the light.
  • 00:19:00.290 --> 00:19:11.100
  • Then I met the Master.
  • 00:19:11.110 --> 00:19:21.210
  • Now I walk no more in the night.
  • 00:19:21.220 --> 00:19:32.000
  • all: For all things were changed when He found me.
  • 00:19:32.010 --> 00:19:42.010
  • A new day broke through all around me,
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:52.200

  • 00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:41.280
  • I bet you there's not a concert that goes by
  • 00:22:41.290 --> 00:22:43.180
  • that somebody says, "Are you gonna sing..."
  • 00:22:43.190 --> 00:22:45.140
  • - SingThe Blind Man.
  • 00:22:45.150 --> 00:22:47.020
  • Every night.
  • 00:22:47.030 --> 00:22:48.140
  • - You've been singing that for, what, the last...
  • 00:22:48.150 --> 00:22:51.040
  • - Six years, isn't it?
  • 00:22:51.050 --> 00:22:52.040
  • - Six or seven years.
  • 00:22:52.050 --> 00:22:53.040
  • - Yeah, maybe seven years.
  • 00:22:53.050 --> 00:22:54.040
  • - Every night.
  • 00:22:54.050 --> 00:22:55.140
  • Well, let's go to Toronto with 14.000 Canadians
  • 00:22:55.150 --> 00:22:58.140
  • and probably some Americans who had come across the border
  • 00:22:58.150 --> 00:23:01.070
  • to hear this wonderful experience
  • 00:23:01.080 --> 00:23:04.170

  • Listen.
  • 00:23:07.290 --> 00:23:09.240
  • - I was working in town one afternoon,
  • 00:23:09.250 --> 00:23:14.270
  • attending some business affairs.
  • 00:23:14.280 --> 00:23:18.240
  • I heard a commotion a couple streets over
  • 00:23:18.250 --> 00:23:23.090
  • and wondered, "What's happening there?"
  • 00:23:23.100 --> 00:23:27.180
  • A young man was running from in that direction
  • 00:23:27.190 --> 00:23:32.020
  • and stopped just to catch his breath.
  • 00:23:32.030 --> 00:23:36.060
  • I asked him to please tell me what was the hurry.
  • 00:23:36.070 --> 00:23:41.280
  • He smiled up at me, and he said...
  • 00:23:41.290 --> 00:23:45.090
  • all: I was trying to catch the crippled man.
  • 00:23:45.100 --> 00:23:50.140
  • Did he run past this way?
  • 00:23:50.150 --> 00:23:54.160
  • - He was rushing home to tell everyone
  • 00:23:54.170 --> 00:23:58.290
  • what Jesus did today.
  • 00:23:59.000 --> 00:24:03.120
  • all: And the mute man was telling
  • 00:24:03.130 --> 00:24:05.240
  • myself and the deaf girl,
  • 00:24:05.250 --> 00:24:08.030
  • "He's leaving to answer God's call."
  • 00:24:08.040 --> 00:24:12.090
  • - It's hard to believe...
  • 00:24:12.100 --> 00:24:14.140
  • all: But if you don't trust me,
  • 00:24:14.150 --> 00:24:17.150
  • ask the blind man.
  • 00:24:17.160 --> 00:24:19.080
  • He saw it all.
  • 00:24:19.090 --> 00:24:21.130
  • Ask the blind man.
  • 00:24:21.140 --> 00:24:23.230
  • He saw it all.
  • 00:24:23.240 --> 00:24:28.290
  • - That's what the Lord Jesus can do, folks.
  • 00:24:29.000 --> 00:24:32.230
  • My friend, if the troubles and burdens you carry
  • 00:24:32.240 --> 00:24:37.180
  • are heavy and dragging you down,
  • 00:24:37.190 --> 00:24:41.200
  • and you've tried everything you can possibly think of,
  • 00:24:41.210 --> 00:24:46.120
  • but there's no relief to be found,

  • 00:33:00.250 --> 00:33:02.160
  • I told the guys, I said, "I heard that crowd roar."
  • 00:33:02.170 --> 00:33:05.120
  • And I leaned over to Joe, and I said,
  • 00:33:05.130 --> 00:33:06.270
  • "I could get used to this."
  • 00:33:06.280 --> 00:33:08.090

  • now, that was the first time in front of a crowd.
  • 00:33:22.180 --> 00:33:24.240
  • The first time that we had you
  • 00:33:24.250 --> 00:33:27.060
  • was at a place in Indianapolis called The Indiana Roof.
  • 00:33:27.070 --> 00:33:30.050
  • And I can remember Barry, my son-in-law,
  • 00:33:30.060 --> 00:33:33.250
  • who runs this whole organization,
  • 00:33:33.260 --> 00:33:35.150
  • came out after you were singing this song and said,

  • "Who in the world are those Booth Brothers?"
  • 00:33:38.020 --> 00:33:40.170

  • 00:45:54.210 --> 00:45:55.270
  • We made it.
  • 00:45:55.280 --> 00:45:57.060
  • - You know, Bill,
  • 00:45:57.070 --> 00:45:58.130
  • if your little quartet thing doesn't...
  • 00:45:58.140 --> 00:46:02.040
  • - [laughs]
  • 00:46:02.050 --> 00:46:03.060

  • [laughter]
  • 00:46:04.120 --> 00:46:06.030
  • - Okay, we've been to South Africa.
  • 00:46:06.040 --> 00:46:09.030
  • We've been to Red Rocks in Colorado.
  • 00:46:09.040 --> 00:46:11.100
  • We have been to Toronto, Canada.
  • 00:46:11.110 --> 00:46:15.050
  • Let's go to Charlotte, North Carolina, closer to home.
  • 00:46:15.060 --> 00:46:18.090
  • The Billy Graham Library-- was that an experience?
  • 00:46:18.100 --> 00:46:20.200
  • - Oh, my goodness.
  • 00:46:20.210 --> 00:46:21.250
  • - One of my favorites.
  • 00:46:21.260 --> 00:46:24.060
  • - And we did it in a tent
  • 00:46:24.070 --> 00:46:25.140
  • because that's where Billy started out.
  • 00:46:25.150 --> 00:46:27.200
  • Not one of his first Crusades
  • 00:46:27.210 --> 00:46:30.100
  • but one of his major Crusades was in a tent in Los Angeles.
  • 00:46:30.110 --> 00:46:34.000
  • - Mm-hmm.
  • 00:46:34.010 --> 00:46:35.040
  • - Bev Shea was there.
  • 00:46:35.050 --> 00:46:36.180
  • - Yes.
  • 00:46:36.190 --> 00:46:37.210
  • - And Cliff Barrows was there.
  • 00:46:37.220 --> 00:46:40.140
  • What a wonderful experience.
  • 00:46:40.150 --> 00:46:42.110
  • And here again, we were going back to the '50s,
  • 00:46:42.120 --> 00:46:45.160
  • and we wanted to do a '50s-style song.
  • 00:46:45.170 --> 00:46:47.140
  • Jim Brady said, "I've written the song."
  • 00:46:47.150 --> 00:46:49.070
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:46:49.080 --> 00:46:50.220
  • - You little rascal, you.
  • 00:46:50.230 --> 00:46:51.260
  • You're a song player.
  • 00:46:51.270 --> 00:46:52.270
  • You slipped that...
  • 00:46:52.280 --> 00:46:54.150
  • And before we knew it, there it was.
  • 00:46:54.160 --> 00:46:57.030
  • Let's go.
  • 00:46:57.040 --> 00:46:59.070
  • all: I was walking along life's road with no meaning,
  • 00:46:59.080 --> 00:47:04.090
  • living and breathing but really just existing.
  • 00:47:04.100 --> 00:47:09.010
  • Then out of the blue,
  • 00:47:09.020 --> 00:47:10.130
  • I heard about a Savior who died to make me whole.
  • 00:47:10.140 --> 00:47:14.050
  • I fell on my knees and gave Him my heart and soul.
  • 00:47:14.060 --> 00:47:19.010
  • Now life is worth living,
  • 00:47:19.020 --> 00:47:21.150
  • and life is so exciting
  • 00:47:21.160 --> 00:47:23.250
  • since Jesus came to live inside of me.
  • 00:47:23.260 --> 00:47:28.240
  • This smile is unexplainable, simply uncontainable,
  • 00:47:28.250 --> 00:47:34.070

  • doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.
  • 00:47:55.290 --> 00:47:58.020
  • - Now it seems to me the sunshine was brighter.
  • 00:47:58.030 --> 00:48:03.070
  • Every day, the load that I carry gets lighter.
  • 00:48:03.080 --> 00:48:07.180
  • all: My worry and care, gloom and despair...
  • 00:48:07.190 --> 00:48:10.280
  • - Turned and walked away...
  • 00:48:10.290 --> 00:48:12.280
  • all: Since the wonderful, loving Savior came to stay.
  • 00:48:12.290 --> 00:48:17.240
