NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Nashville couple is reviving the art of writing songs for hymn books instead of the radio.
The Tennessean reports Keith and Kristyn Getty specialize in writing hymns for choirs at a time when most church songs are written for rock bands.
And so far they've been successful.
According to Christian Copyright Licensing International, a song called "In Christ Alone" that Keith co-wrote has been among the top 20 sung in newer churches over the last five years in the United States.
Meanwhile, the Gettys traveled to Florida recently to lead worship at the Gospel Coalition conference. Now, they are on a sabbatical and trying to write more hymns.
