Saturday News Roundup #126
- BMI handed out its Christian Music Awards earlier this week. Songs and songwriters were both honored; Kyla Rowland joined three CCM songwriters as one of the four “Songwriters of the Year.” Several Southern Gospel songs were honored as “Award-winning songs,” evidently a top-25 list of sorts:
- Did I Mention (Kyla Rowland / The Perrys)
- I’ve Never Known a Day (Van Mitchell / The Inspirations)
- Somebody Died for Me (Kyle Matthews and Christy Sutherland / Triumphant Quartet)
- This Old Sinner Testifies (Kyla Rowland / The Perrys)
- You Were Faithful Yesterday (Rodney Griffin / Greater Vision)
- Nick and Jessica Brown Trammell (of The Browns) had their first child Thursday morning—a daughter, Tessa. Congratulations to the parents (and the ecstatic grandparents, too!)
- The Freemans signed with Rivergate Talent Agency for booking.
- Sheila Heil (wife of legendary Gospel Greats host Paul Heil) had eye surgery yesterday. Prayers are requested for her recovery.
Here’s a video of the Garms Family (who are SouthernGospelBlog.com contributors) singing “Tell Me the Story of Jesus.” It’s probably their best performance to make it to YouTube yet.
Also, here’s a ten-minute Gaither.com video interview with Ben Isaacs (about producing albums).
It’s open thread Saturday—you decide!
