Doug Oldham was born in Indiana, in late 1930.
One of the most successful songwriters of Christian music, Bill Gaither was an original member of the renowned gospel music act the Gaither Trio.
In the early 1960s, Gaither met Doug Oldham, who had recently begun singing at tent revival meetings. Oldham and Gaither began travelling together, with Oldham singing songs written by Gaither and his wife, Gloria. The story goes that after having attended a revival meeting at which Oldham's father was speaking, the father suggested to Gaither that he should write a hymn with the words, "He touched me, oh, he touched me." Gaither did so and Doug Oldham sang "He Touched Me" the week after Gaither had written it and shortly after became the first person to record the number.
Oldham was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2006. He died in 2010.
