GOGR Music History –
The Speer Family
The Speer Family moved to Nashville, Tennessee shortly after Brock was discharged from the Air Force. Brock felt the calling of God to the ministry and he enrolled at Trevecca Nazarene College. The Speer Family established themselves amid the music world of Nashville. They had a morning radio show and traveled around singing their gospel music. At this time, there were few mixed gospel groups traveling about the country.
Brock would have probably become a minister, had his father not experienced some dental problems. It’s amazing how God works His magic. Dad had his teeth extracted, and he began experiencing some trouble speaking from the stage. He turned the emcee duties over to Brock, and Brock soon found out that he could do his own version of sermonizing without the benefit of a pulpit. Through the ministry of music, Brock was able to relay the gospel to countless thousands.
