The group had 40 charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1955 and 1967, including four no. 1 hits.
Music Charts Magazine® History
- Song for the month of April 2015:
The Happy Goodman Family - “I Wouldn’t Take Nothing For My Journey Now“
The Happy Goodman Family was a Southern Gospel group that was founded in the 1940s by Howard “Happy” Goodman and performed together for several decades. The Happy Goodmans achieved significant popularity in the 1960s. In 1968 they won the first Grammy awarded for a Gospel album by a Gospel group.
The Happy Goodman Family began to be known for their singing around 1950. During the 1940s and 1950s there were various combinations of all eight brothers and sisters, always including Howard. Sam served in the Air Force while Bobby worked as a truck driver and played some rock and roll bands. Rusty served in the armed forces as well as singing with The Plainsmen Quartet afterwards. Howard’s wife Vestal joined the group as well. After all the sisters married, Howard and Vestal became evangelists. Soon Sam joined again followed by Rusty in 1962 and Bobby on bass guitar not long afterwards.
The fame of the Happy Goodmans grew considerably in the early 1960s. Appearances at the National Quartet Convention got them in front of promoters who in turn booked them across the country. In 1964, they were asked to become one of the flagship groups for a new Southern Gospel program called The Gospel Singing Jubilee along with The Florida Boys, Dixie Echoes, and The Couriers Quartet. This program soon became one of the most popular gospel music programs and would run for over twenty years. The Goodmans would soon become one of the most popular groups on the program, and would remain so for ten years till they left to start their own TV program the Happy Goodman Family Hour. The Goodmans also had a short-lived program called “Down Home with The Happy Goodman Family”. The weekly TV exposure allowed The Happy Goodman Family to take the nation by storm. They quickly became America’s favorite singing family.
Their first full length recording was “I’m Too Near Home”, initially released in 1963 and later re-released on Canaan/Word Records in 1965. In 1968, they were honored with a Grammy Award for their 1967 album “The Happy Gospel of the Happy Goodmans”. Ten years later, they received another Grammy for “Refreshing”.
The Goodmans had a list of hit songs a mile wide. Many of the songs they introduced to gospel music are now considered classics. Songs such as “I Wouldn’t Take Nothing For My Journey Now”, “Who Am I?”, “God Walks The Dark Hills”, “Had It Not Been”, “What A Beautiful Day”, and many others will forever be part of gospel music and synonymous with the Happy Goodman Family.
The Goodmans broke new ground in gospel music during the 1960s and 1970s by implementing a live band and creating their own unique sound. It was during these years that they developed their now classic “grab a note and hang on” endings. Sam’s humorous emcee work, Howard’s showmanship at the piano, Rusty’s songwriting, and Vestal’s hairdos, white handkerchiefs, and powerful singing voice all rose to a new prominence. Tenor Johnny Cook joined the group for a while in 1974 and Rusty’s daughter Tanya was added in 1976.
