Vern Gosdin is considered a "traditional" country singer with a deep, strong country voice. Gosdin's traditional timbre earned him the nickname "The Voice" among his country music peers.
Gosdin's vocal abilities were often compared to those of fellow singer/songwriter George Jones. Gosdin's music focused on the traditional country themes of love and loss, many of which were sung in the rousing honky tonk style.
Much of what is considered to be Gosdin's best work didn't see the top of the charts. His album "Alone," released in 1989, was a traditional country album that chronicled Gosdin's failed marriage. Although it was received well, the country music scene had already shifted to more modern types of country songs.Learn more about Art & Literature
