Squire Parsons

The family of Squire Parsons has released the following statement:

The family of Squire Parsons would like to thank everyone for the prayers for Squire.

As many know, Squire had a medical issue during yesterday’s funeral service for Ernie Phillips. Unfortunately, there was a lot of exaggerated chatter that ensued during the following hours.

Today, Squire did undergo bypass surgery to repair some blockages in his heart. After the surgery, the doctor came in to speak with the family and friends who were waiting to report that Squire came through the surgery well, and as a result, the doctor was very optimistic for his recovery.

The family appreciates the outpouring of prayers and support, and asks that you continue to do so. However, please respect the family’s privacy as they go through the next few weeks of recovery.

You can follow updates on Squire’s progress at his official Facebook page:

“Although I’m mostly known as a Southern gospel guy, my Bluegrass roots run deep; very deep,” says Butler. “I grew up on Flatt and Scruggs, Live from Carnegie Hall. Earl was the first to show me his three-finger banjo roll. I’ve played and toured with Dailey and Vincent.  I’ve been blessed to host a national award-winning syndicated Bluegrass Gospel show for over 20 years. Yes, I guess it’s safe to say that in addition to being a Southern Gospel guy, I am also a Bluegrass guy.”

Gloryway Quartet was honored to open the evening with a song and also won the award for Sunrise Quartet of the Year.

Les Butler joined Gerald Crabb in presenting the JD Sumner Living Legend Award to Gerald Williams of the Melody Boys.  Les was also honored to play the piano for Gerald Crabb as he sang, “When He Reached Down His Hand For Me.”

Jason Davidson was a presenter for the Dottie Rambo Songwriter of the Year award.

Les Butler’s friend and mentor, Vic Clay, was awarded the Publishers Award for his contributions to Southern Gospel Music over the years.  Les states, “if not for the Lord and Vic Clay I would have never gotten involved in Southern Gospel music.  Vic is a close friend and taught me everything I know in a recording studio.”

The Diamond Awards are held during the Creekside Gospel Music Convention each year.  This convention, hosted by SGN Scoops Magazine, has grown 28% over last year and continues to gain momentum!  This is the only totally fan-based award in Southern Gospel Music and is a favorite among Southern Gospel Music fans.
