Mark Lowry Biography

Mark Lowry (Mark Alan Lowry) an American singer, comedian, and songwriter from Houston, Texas, U.S. He is best known for co-writing the famous Christmas song Mary, Did You Know? alongside Buddy Greene.

From 1988 to 2001, and then 2009 to 2013, Lowry was a member of the Gaither Vocal Band along with Michael English, David Phelps, and Bill Gaither. Over the course of his career, he has recorded twelve albums, both music, and comedy.

Mark Lowry Age

Mark was born on June 24, 1958, in Houston, Texas, the United States of America.

The Gaither Vocal Band

Mark was approached by Bill Gaither in 1988 and was invited to join the Gaither Vocal Band as the baritone. Lowry’s career with the band spanned thirteen years during his first stint with the group.

Mark’s on-stage antics were common with audiences and as a result, he was the co-host of the numerous concerts and shows performed by Gaither and the Vocal Band, with Gaither playing the straight man to Lowry’s antics.

In June 2001, Lowry left the Gaither Vocal Band after performing longer with the band than any previous member except Gaither himself. After that, he released many solo albums, including A Hymns Collection, I Love to Tell the Story.

On January 14, 2009, it was published that Lowry would be rejoining the Gaither Vocal Band while maintaining his solo career. In October 2013, it was publicly announced that Lowry and Michael English would be resigning from the group to dedicate more time to their sole careers. Lowry stayed on throughout to the end of the year.

Mark ended up performing in several independent Baptist churches in the United States until he graduated. While he was still in college and singing, he increased passion and interest to do stand up comedy and it is here that his comedy career inadvertently started. Just after his graduation, Lowry’s agent, Roy Morgan, reserved him in 43 cities in 41 days.

There would be an elongated pause in his singing appearance while he waited for the soundtrack to be changed. Lowry began to fill this pause with a monologue. He soon realized that the audiences at his performances were laughing not at him but at his monologues.
