Christian Country Artist,
"Keeping CHRIST In Our Country"
Gayla Earlene was raised in the small town of Inola, Oklahoma but with big dreams of becoming a successful singer and songwriter. As a child she loved listening to her dad sing and play guitar and her Mom play piano. Both had a big influence on her music and it was during those early years that she began to play guitar and write poetry that soon became songwriting. Her persistent drive and dedication to excellence in her art has proven to be one of her strong points in the industry. Gayla Earlene began her professional singing career at the early age of 15.
Gayla has recorded a number of albums with husband, Gene Crain as the producer and steel guitarist. Gayla's beloved cousin, Nashville's late Randy Hardison, co-produced and was the drummer on her first six of 10 albums. Gayla's recordings have produced many number 1 songs on the Country Gospel charts, including Billboard.
Enjoy the inspiring and uplifting messages of our albums of faith, family and Love of Christ.
