About The Singing Contractors

A pair of Midwestern building contractors who enjoy harmonizing while on the job, Aaron Gray and Josh Arnett rose to national fame in 2015 when a video of them singing a gospel hymn at an Indiana job site went viral on Facebook. Over the next several years, while maintaining their full-time jobs as craftsmen, the two friends nurtured their burgeoning music career as the Singing Contractors, releasing a pair of independent country-gospel albums before signing with the famed Gaither Music Group to make their national label debut with 2019's Working on a Building.

Longtime friends Gray and Arnett grew up casually singing gospel music with their families. Later, when both were working as contractors, they often found themselves working on the same job sites around Indianapolis and would harmonize with each other on old hymns while they worked. In 2015, they uploaded an impromptu video of themselves and a local pastor name Paul Bigger singing the hymn "How Great Thou Art" in three-part harmony at a job site and it quickly took on a life of its own, notching millions of streams online. A subsequent television appearance on Fox & Friends increased their newfound fame as the Singing Contractors and later that year they released an independent country gospel album, How Great Thou Art. Gray and Arnett continued their day jobs as contractors, enjoying playing and recording music on the side, and released a second independent album, Simply Put, in 2017. In 2019, they took their music careers to a new level, signing a record deal with the Gaither Music Group and releasing their first national album, a live LP called Working on a Building: Hymns and Gospel Classics. The duo wrapped up their busy year with a holiday outing called Building a Christmas to Remember.
