    On Facebook today, Gaither Music announced a live, 2-day Homecoming video shoot in August 2022 in Tulsa, OK. While they didn’t share the exact venue, they released a roster of artists and announced ticket sales available next week.

    Among the artists listed, the Sound appears to be the only confirmed, first-time act on the series. Of course, there is no telling who else may make an appearance other than those listed.
