Pigeon Forge, TN (August 27, 2015) – The Christian Country Expo continues today at the Smoky Mountain Resort in Pigeon Forge, TN. The Expo has already welcomed many great Christian Country artists such as Marty Raybon, T Graham Brown and Chris Golden. Last night during the concert, a special announcement was made to honor Chuck Day, an artist who has made his mark in Christian Country, Gospel and Country music. Rob Patz of SGN Scoops, one of the sponsors of the event, awarded Chuck Day with the 2015 Christian Country Living Legend Diamond Award.

The SGN Scoops’ Diamond Awards are traditionally presented in November during the Creekside Gospel Music Convention. A decision was made this year to begin to view the Diamond Awards celebrations as two separate events. For the award year of 2014-15, currently being voted upon, the Diamond Awards will remain as they have been in the past, with all Southern Gospel, Christian Country and Bluegrass Gospel awards being announced during the awards gala on November 3, 2015.

For the award year of 2015-16, the Christian Country and Bluegrass Gospel will be presented during the 2016 Christian Country Expo. The date and time of the 2016 Christian Country Expo will be announced at a later date.

To begin this transition, a new award was created, entitled “Christian Country Living Legend,” in order to honor the pioneers and visionaries who have helped to make the Christian Country genre what it is today. The winner of this award for 2015 is Chuck Day.
