Diamond Awards 2018 at Creekside Gospel Music Convention

Diamond Awards 2018 at Creekside Gospel Music Convention

Tuesdays at Creekside.   If you’ve ever been here, you know exactly what that means without any further explanation.

Diamond Awards 2018 at Creekside Gospel Music ConventionTuesdays at Creekside begin at 9:00 a.m. with music in the Showcase Hall, followed by the evening concert at 5:00 p.m., Diamond Awards, and Midnight Prayer. This year was no different.

Diamond Awards 2018 at Creekside Gospel Music ConventionAt 9:00 a.m. Pastor David Mathis from Living Hope Free Methodist Church in West Unity Ohio, opened the day with prayer.  Pastor Dave has been a friend to many of the Creekside artists including Hope’s Journey, Southern Raised, Mark209, and Kristen Stanton.  

Diamond Awards 2018 at Creekside Gospel Music ConventionThe morning was filled with a non-stop rotation of artists which lasted until approximately 2:00 p.m.

At 5:00 Scott Roberts and the 5 o’clock band hit the stage, playing some well-loved hymns and classic gospel songs which always gears up the audience for the rest of the evening. Tuesday night featured a lineup of great artists leading into a time of singing and preaching with C.T. Townsend and his wife Becky.

Diamond Awards 2018 at Creekside Gospel Music ConventionThe atmosphere was electric and the crowd was talking well past the end of the evening about the message Townsend delivered.  The message was a great reminder that God has already blessed us with what we need, so when we feel like we have nothing left, we need to go take another look. And when we’ve done everything we can, we need not fear because God will step in.

For many in attendance, the highlight of  the evening were the Diamond Awards, hosted by Dr. Jerry Goff and Jan Buckner Goff.  

Diamond Awards 2018 at Creekside Gospel Music ConventionGloryway Quartet, who won the Sunrise Quartet of the Year, were asked to open the awards show with some singing.  Justin Crank from Gloryway reported that it was an honor just to be asked to be part of the Diamond Awards.

“We didn’t think we had a chance at winning.  We just want to give God glory first and a thank you to all of our fans and family for their love and support,” said Crank.

Winning multiple awards were the Jordan Family Band with the Sunrise Song of the Year,  “This is the Day;” the Gospel Music Today Video DVD of the year, and the Sunrise Award.

Eagles Wings also took home multiple awards with the Bluegrass Gospel Song of the year, Bluegrass Gospel Female Artist of the Year, and Bluegrass Gospel Male artist of the year.  

Also walking away with awards were:

The Children of the Promise –Sunrise Trio of the Year

The Williamsons — Mixed Group of the Year

C.T. and Becky Townsend – Duet of the Year

The Kingsmen—Quartet of  the Year

HighRoad – Christian Country Song of the Year

Vic Clay  — Publisher’s Choice Award

Jeff Stice – Anthony Burger Instrumentalist of the Year

Chainbreaker (Triumphant Quartet) — Song of the Year

Gerald Williams – JD Sumner Living  Legend Award

Gerald Crabb – Dottie Rambo Songwriter of the Year

Lottie Squires —  Paul Heil Award for Broadcasting

Robert York—Mountaintop Industry Award

The evening closed out with Exodus leading Midnight Prayer, once again centering on how prayer changes things.  God has met with us in this place. And it’s not over yet.

Diamond Awards

Pigeon Forge, Tenn. (August 10, 2018) — Rob Patz, owner and host of Creekside Gospel Music Convention, is happy to announce that Pat Mathis and her team at WATC TV in Atlanta, Georgia will be recording the 2018 Diamond Awards on October 30, 2018, at Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Diamond Awards to be filmed by WATC “We at WATC TV in Atlanta, Georgia are excited to once again partner with WGGS TV in Greenville, South Carolina to cover the Diamond Awards,” said Patricia Mathis, Vice President of WATC. “It has been an annual event that our viewers at WATC enjoy, not only for the great gospel music performances, but also to be able to congratulate those who are awarded a Diamond Award.”

The 2018 Diamond Awards are held as a part of the Creekside Gospel Music Convention, Oct. 28 – Nov. 1, at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center. Dr. Jerry and Jan Goff will be the hosts for the gala occasion, highlighted by great live performances and surprise guests.

“The Diamond Awards are always special,” said Rob Patz. “We are thrilled to welcome back Pat, WATC, and WGGS, as they shoot the footage that will be seen by so many of their viewers that are not able to attend this unique event. Just the presence of the TV crew adds its own air of excitement to the evening, on top of the anticipation of the Awards themselves. It’s going to be a terrific night and I urge everyone who can attend to be there!” Tickets for every night at Creekside are free but must be reserved.

Last year, Robert York of SGNScoops Magazine, wrote a feature on WATC which said, “WATC-TV has become known to its viewers as being the home for Atlanta Live, the station’s nightly live program. The station is available to more than 2.5 million viewers in the Atlanta market. It is available throughout Georgia on various cable networks, as well as 24 hours a day on the internet. Some of the other programs produced on WATC-TV include Babbie’s House, Enjoying Life, Friends and Neighbors, Josh and Ashley, Just Keep Singing, Seniors Today and Gospel Music USA. For a few years, they have taped the SGNScoops Diamond Awards and the SGNScoops Life Achievement Award as well as some of the Creekside Gospel Music Convention for a special program for their audience. The station has received numerous awards, including an Angel Award and a Telly Award, and was honored with its first Emmy Award in 2010. In 2017, the station received the Georgia Association of Broadcasters’ Gabby Awards for Community Service, which recognizes the work of radio and television stations from all stations throughout the state of Georgia.” (abridged)
