"Circuit Rider," created by Suzanne Gaither Jennings and Woody Wright and released through
Gaither Music Group, is the real-life account of the spiritual formation of a nation and the church
we have today, shaped in part by the dedication and vision of these circuit riders. These musical
performances and readings, sung and read by some of the most well-loved Gospel artists, tell the
story of these preachers who blazed the trail to share the Gospel of Jesus with people of every
race and nationality living in little towns and settlements across the nation. These brave men
understood the meaning of perseverance and sacrifice. Their stories are not often told, but they
are as much a part of the American landscape as Mount Rushmore and the Grand Canyon.
That story of hardships, revivals, baptism, sanctification and suffering is captured through
performances and readings by award-winning artists including Guy Penrod, Russ Taff, William
Lee Golden, Gloria Gaither, Lynda Randle, Tanya Goodman Sykes, Mark Lowry, Benjy Gaither,
Woody Wright, Buddy Greene, Judy Martin Hess, The Isaacs, Joy Gardner, Reggie Smith,
Charlotte Ritchie, Angie Primm, Michael Sykes and more. The DVD is hosted by former
governor of Arkansas, talk show host and presidential nominee Mike Huckabee.
"My hope for the viewer is that they will find it uplifting, historically interesting and, to be
honest, maybe even a little convicting," stated Suzanne Gaither Jennings. "When Woody
originally called me to talk about doing this project he said, How many of us today sitting in our
padded pews all over America would be willing to do something that drastic?' To be a
circuit-riding preacher took dedication and perseverance; it took suffering and sacrifice. Their
stories inspire me as a believer and cause me to reevaluate what I can do for the cause of Christ.
They gave us a strong history to live up to."
