    According to Taylor Red’s small about sentence, they are a country/pop girl band. Looks like Gospel music is no longer a part of their repertoire.

      That is also the impression I am getting from their Facebook page. I guess we’ll know as soon as they release some new music.

      What’s more curious is it appears all of their Red Roots music videos have been pulled from YouTube.
