This incomplete list is specifically for Christian music performers in the gospel music genres who have either been very important to the genre, or have had a considerable amount of exposure, such as in the case of one that has been on a major label. This list includes artists that perform in traditional gospel music genres such as Southern gospel, traditional black gospel, progressive Southern gospel, urban contemporary gospel, gospel blues, Christian country music, Celtic gospel and British black gospel as well as artists in the general market who have recorded music in these genres. This list is not designed to include performers in the greater Christian music industry specifically contemporary Christian music performers and its subgenres.
Bands are listed by the first letter in their name (not including the words "a", "an", or "the"), and individuals are listed by family name.
Note: Because classifying gospel music can be arbitrary, these groupings are generalized and many artists appear on multiple lists.
