Post of the Day: Sue C. Smith on winning a Dove

If anyone has a chance of actually capturing what it feels like to win one of the highest honors in Christian music, someone who won it for their writing skills probably has a head start. Check out Sue C. Smith’s post; it’s a worthwhile read—especially the last paragraph. [EDIT, 6/18/12: Broken link removed.]

  1. Sue C. Smith is one of the most gifted and talented women I know–such a beautiful person inside and out. I’ve had the privilege to write two songs with her and I hope that number increases in the future. Every word of that post is exactly from her heart and is truly the way she feels.

    When I went to Nashville for my first “official” writing session, in the span of a day I wrote with Joel Lindsey, Wayne Haun, and Sue C. Smith. If I had really fullly grasped the significance of that moment, of writing with such gifted, awarded, and respected writers, I would probably have passed out! LOL! But all of them were so gracious and took time to work with me, and I will never forget that. It was and always will be a very special highlight in my writing career.

    Congratulations to one of gospel music’s finest!! Way to go, Sue!!!

  2. The blog was a worthwhile read…

    But I also wanted to say (regarding commenter #1) that “Mercy Forgot” is one of my very favorite Kirk Talley songs.

  3. Thank you, Amy! That is still one of my personal favorite cuts. Kirk did a great job on it.

    I just found out tonite that I have a cut on Karen Peck and New River’s new recording. It’s a cowrite with Marcia Henry. I am very excited and blessed!
