Hometown Paper features Roger Bennett’s final Pianist win
The Batesville Daily Guard, a newspaper published in the vicinity of Roger Bennett’s hometown of Strawberry, Arkansas, featured Bennett’s final posthumous win of the Favorite Musician award here.
Bennett won the Favorite Southern Gospel Pianist award for the 15th consecutive time. His widow, Debbie Bennett, accepted the award along with Scott Fowler, who co-founded the gospel music group Legacy Five with Bennett.
Fowler and Bennett were both long-time members of the world-famous Cathedrals before that group disbanded in 1999, leading to the creation of Legacy Five.
I don’t recall seeing Scott Fowler on stage to accept that award, but my view was obstructed by the video boom, so I might just have missed him.
