It’s a whole new season of Gospel Music Showcase! Though they may have retired, the Crabb Family legacy lives on. Guy Penrod gets up close and personal with The Bowling Family and Jason Crabb.
The Bowling Family
The Bowling Family is no stranger to the Christian music world having a long list of accomplishments during their vocal careers. They have appeared on the Gaither Homecoming series concerts and videos, TBN, during Gospel Music Week’s Dove Awards, at GMA’s Seminar in the Rockies and other major events. Their debut release, Faith To Believe, has garnered a record four number one songs (“We Have A Saviour,” “Your Cries Have Awoken The Master,” “A Miracle Today” and “Notified”), as well as the 2008 Song of the Year (“Your Cries Have Awoken The Master).
The world is in need of the Gospel. The careers and ministries that Mike, Kelly and Terah have enjoyed thus far are humbling for them. As long as there is a song and a place to sing it, the Bowling Family is committed to making Gospel music together. With Mike and Kelly’s three girls in tow the future is bright, and who knows how many Bowling girls will be on that stage with them in the future!

Baptized in a God-given talent pool, weaned on the hymnal and mentored by Bill Gaither himself, Jason Crabb hit the road at age 14 and, alongside his family, has pursued his calling full-throttle ever since.
He’s performed at Carnegie Hall, become a ‘fan favorite’ at the Grand Ole Opry, appeared regularly on the Gaither Homecoming Series videos, and was honored to sing for the Rev. Billy Graham’s farewell crusade in New York City. His voice has echoed in churches great and small at home in the U.S. and around the world.
Continuing the tradition his father, Gerald Crabb, taught him so well—that the best lyrics are rooted in real life, where real people live—Jason’s solo debut paints with broad strokes: Authenticity. Hope. Faith. Humanness.
Jason Crabb won a Dove award in 2010 for Country Recorded Song of the Year (“Somebody Like Me”). And in 2011, he was nominated for 5 Dove awards and won three: Song of the Year (“Sometimes I Cry”), Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year (“Joseph”), and Traditional Gospel Recorded Song of the Year (“Go Tell It on the Mountain“).
