      Probably never, as long as people keep buying this type of CD. He’s playing in my area in a couple of weeks, and tickets are $40. I want to hear something new from him as much as anyone, but he’s doing something right.

        I still wish he would record a proper follow-up to “Breathe Deep.” I just wonder if he shopped that album around Nashville and couldn’t find a taker; the album was available independently for 6 months before Gaither gave it a retail release.
