The Passing of a Legend

Over the weekend, the Christian music community lost a legend; Dottie Rambo was killed in a bus accident in Missouri on her way to a concert in Texas. The bus Rambo toured in struck a guardrail and hit an embankment; Rambo died on the scene. Rambo was 74 years of old.

Even though Dottie Rambo's fame was found in Gospel music, she also wrote for some of country music's best known artists such as:
  • Elvis Presley - If That Isn't Love
  • Barbara Mandrell - I Will Glory in the Cross
  • The Oak Ridge Boys - Sailing Toward Home, He Looked Beyond My Faults and Saw My Need, Mama Teaching Angels How to Sing
  • Dolly Parton - Stand By the River
  • Mel Tillis - Remember Me Dear Lord
  • Vince Gill - Tears Will Never Stain the Sheets of that City
  • Larry Gatlin - Sheltered in the Arms of God
