2013 SouthernGospelBlog.com Awards: Nominations for Best Southern Gospel Behind-The-Scenes Video

Quite a few Southern Gospel magazines and websites offer “best of” contests and awards shows. But they often cover much the same ground: Favorite artist, song, album, male singer, female singer, soprano, alto, tenor, lead, baritone, bass, and the like. Let’s do something different. Let’s honor the best Southern Gospel videos—concept videos, behind-the-scenes videos (including studio videos), and live concert videos. For each category, we’ll do a nominations post and a follow-up post with a poll featuring the top five nominees.

What were the best Southern Gospel behind-the-scenes videos posted this year? Nominate up to two; nominations with three or more videos listed will not be counted.

Behind-the-scenes videos can include videos recorded in the studio, at home, in rehearsal, and on the bus. Eligible nominations must be publicly viewable.

Southern Gospel Journal welcomes letters to the editor. We will post the most thoughtful and insightful submissions. Ground rules: Don't attack or belittle groups or fellow posters, or advance heresies rejected by orthodox Christianity. Do keep comments positive, constructive, and on topic.
  1. This time, I may as well kick off the nominations by nominating an obvious one – a video I’m sure will at least be top three and wouldn’t surprise me as a winner: Collingsworth Family – Burdens Are Lifted at Calvary – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv5bEFfiDPY

    I filmed quite a few In the Studio videos this year. One of my favorites was one with a number of gentlemen from the Faroe Islands recording an album in Faroese, but I don’t think it would have a chance here. So I’ll nominate the studio sessions video for the Kingdom Heirs’ Redeeming the Time video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWfH-5Us3rQ

    • Great ones!

      And after just one post of nominations, there are already two more videos that I’ve actually watched than there were in the previous poll. 🙂

      • That’s a little funny! I do suspect this will be a popular category this year.

  2. Daniel, I enjoyed both of those very much.

    I will try with this one of the Martins recording, with D. Phelps producing and arranging and M. English producing. Thanks for your hard work. 🙂

  3. One of my favorites of the year was Brian a Free and assurance’s tracking session. It was about 40 minutes long but it was great for musicians and studio geeks like myself.

  4. Oh, here is a good one from David’s Studio on his farm. 🙂


  5. I’d like to nominate Devin McGlamery’s video at his CD Release Party at The Listening Room in Nashville, TN for his project, “Love Is A Verb” …in this video Devin is singing “While I Still Can” with his children on stage with him. Thank you~ http://youtu.be/wi2CWLFEInE YouTube devin mcglamery and kids

    • I’m planning on doing a third category, in-concert videos. I believe this video would fall better into that third category.

  6. One of the first that comes to mind is Matt Fouch’s interview with Nick Trammell & The Invader. 🙂
