Paul Cauthen grew up in the ultra-conservative Church of Christ, and took pride as a part of the church’s exceptional chorus. So as an adult he felt very out of place when his life took a turn for the worst and he found himself incarcerated in a Texas jail, working on a chain gang. He didn’t really know how to deal with the situation...except to sing.

 

Paul now heads the band, Sons of Fathers. They just put out a new album called “Burning Days.” You’ve gotta check it out. They’re on tour now across the United States.
