Samuel Allen, a 1960's rockstar, finds himself in jail after struggling with years of anger and blame toward organized religion that has led him down a road of rebellion. In a moment of divine intervention, the judge dismisses drug charges against him under the pretense that Samuel speaks to local schools and churches about the dangers of drugs. Given a second chance, he follows in his father's foot steps to become a preacher, overcoming the influence of a powerful church leader with a personal vendetta against his family.
SOUTHERN GOSPEL is the story of a man overcoming brokenness and never surrendering the dream on his journey to find the gospel… Southern Gospel.

A powerful film based on the true story of Samuel and Julie Allen.
Samuel Allen grew up in the South, the son of a preacher, he get's heavy into a rock n' roll lifestyle before turning over his life to Christ. But the road of ministry is anything but smooth, with opposition at nearly every turn as he fights to proclaim the gospel to the hurting.
An inspiring film of faith, determination, and never giving up on the dream that God gave him. A well made movie, with an excellent cast, and poignant storytelling. I did struggle at times to keep up with the timeline and how many years were going by at a time, but overall I was very impressed with this film and enjoyed the diverse range of music.
This film doesn't shy away from the more difficult parts of the Allen's story, and does a good job of showing how even through the dark times God was working for good in their lives. I liked the powerful message of grace throughout the movie, from beginning to end this was an excellent film. Recommend for adults and older teens, due to the mature subjects (drinking, drugs, suicide).
