The 2015 Diamond Award Nominations are open on the SGN Scoops website. Everyone is invited to the website to enter the Nominations area and list their top ten favorite picks for each Diamond Award category. We are proud that the Diamond Awards are completely fan-driven from start to end!
At the end of the nomination period, the list of nominees will be posted on the site and fans will then nominate their favorites from this list, with a maximum of five names nominated per award. In this way, the field of nominees will be narrowed to ten, voted on by fans once more and then narrowed to five. This final list of five will then be voted on by fans to find the one winner for each award.

Voices Won celebrated their 13th Anniversary with a weekend of great Southern Gospel music. Voices Won is a trio from Dalton, GA consisting of three brothers; Jaron who is the oldest and writes most of the songs they sing; Shantell who is the middle brother and also their military man having served in the Air Force, and Staclynn, who is the youngest and mom’s favorite. They opened the concert each evening which was held at Crosspoint Christian Center in Dalton, GA.
Opening night included the story-telling Mark Bishop who shared a lot of his story songs, pleasing the audience. He even sang a few that he had not written. Winners of five 2014 Diamond Awards, Karen Peck and New River took the stage singing from their Revival CD and a few all-time favorites, ending their program with “Four Days Late.”
Saturday night, Voices Won took a few requests from the audience after they had sung. Then, on to the stage popped the group that has a record of having number-one songs, The McKameys. They made up different singing groups out of their stage personnel. As usual, The McKameys came away pleasing the crowd.
Up next was another fan favorite, Triumphant Quartet. Of course, during their set, Clayton had to have his way and sing “The Old White Flag.”
Tissues, napkins, hankies and even toilet paper came out of women’s purses when he sang. With both these groups performing, it was a sold out show. Folks had to make room for the standing crowd as very few seats were left
Danny Jones emceed the two-night event. Voices Won’s mother, Regina and father, Aaron did a great job preparing meals both nights for folks to enjoy before the concert. If you didn’t want a full meal they also had hot dogs and barbeque sandwiches as well as pinto beans and cornbread.
Voices Won is already preparing for their 14th Anniversary, which is always held the second Friday and Saturday night in November. For more information visit
Thanks to Robert York for this concert review.

It is good to give thanks at any time of year, but when November comes around, it is a good excuse to stop and give thanks to God. We stop for a day to remember our veterans and those who have died, giving thanks for their sacrifice and for our freedom. We also stop for a day, and perhaps a weekend, to gather with family and friends and to be thankful for everything our Lord has given to us, as well as the great sacrifice He made on Calvary.
Our Southern Gospel friends across the country recently paused for a moment in their busy lives to tell us what they were most thankful for on Thanksgiving Day. [Editor’s note: This article was first published in 2012].
Soloist Larry Davis from Newton, Mississippi: “I am thankful for the talent the Lord has blessed me with. I get to sing and write and am able to live my dream everyday. I am thankful I am saved and also thankful for my daughter Stacey and my wife, Sonda.” http://www.larrydavis.org/
Gary Casto, lead singer and manager of Tribute Quartet: “I am so thankful that the Lord has placed a calling upon my life and has given me a platform to minister on each week through Southern Gospel Music. Also, I’m thankful for my family, friends and fans for their love and support on this journey of life that the Lord has placed me on.” http://www.tributequartet.com/
Sonya Browder of The Browders: “Wow, how do you pick one thing to be thankful for? The list just goes on and on! I’ve been meditating lately on the mercy of God. There are days when my humanness sticks out more than I’d care to admit! It’s in those times when I am frustrated with myself that I go to the Father and find mercy once again. Even when I’m tired of myself, He never tires of me, because His mercy endures forever! For that, I am thankful.” http://www.thebrowders.com/
Nick Trammell of The Mark Trammell Quartet: “I have a lot to be thankful for. God has blessed me and my family far beyond what we deserve. Jessica and I brought home our first child on June 21, a beautiful baby girl named Tessa Nichole. I was also privileged to get to join Dad
on stage after 28 years of watching him from the audience. I’m thankful for my beautiful wife, my family, my friends, and all the people who support us in our ministry. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without them.” http://www.marktrammellministries.com/
Soloist Sharron Kay King Driver of Macon, Georgia: “I guess to sum it up would be this scripture: ‘I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. Psalm
34:4.’ I’m ever so thankful that no matter where I am or what I’m faced with all I have to do is call out His name and He hears me and always delivers me from my fears!” http://www.sharronkayking.com/
Bryan Hutson, lead singer of Soul’d Out Quartet: “We are thankful for family and God’s protection on us and our four children during 2012. We have traveled a lot of miles commuting to the bus, to school and getting to and from our jobs. God is so good and we are expecting even greater things in 2013!” http://www.souldoutquartet.com/home.cfm
Evie Hawkins of EHA-Nashville: “This has been one of the most trying years of my life. Many personal changes have come about, but the Lord has stood faithfully by my side. I am so thankful for my family, church family, good health, and great artists who allow me to work for them! But I really have been dwelling on this fact lately: No matter where life leads me and what problems I face, I am so thankful He never changes. This is the one comforting constant in my life: the Lord never leaves my side. If I step away from Him like a toddler slips away from a parent, I may get hurt, because I’ve just hurt
myself. Thankfully, He loves unconditionally, like I do my children. I’m thankful God put a spiritual leader in my life when I was a child. My mother taught me these things and so did my pastor, Rev. Melvin Brown. I wouldn’t trade all the riches of earth for these two people!” http://www.eha-nashville.com/
Donna King of Vertical Sky and Flight Studio: “It’s hard to keep my words to a minimum in general, but especially when attempting to express my gratitude for this year, 2012! But, in an attempt to at least scratch the service, I thank God first, for His presence in my life, and that He blessed me in ways that could only be His Ways! I realize more everyday just how much higher His ways are than mine. I am overwhelmingly thankful for my new marriage and my amazing husband, with whom I share a love I never thought possible. Zane King is such an incredible gift. He brings me joy on a daily basis, he shares in my dreams (which are our dreams). He’s even funny! A lot of people don’t know that! I am also thankful, beyond words, for the ways in which God provided rescue, this year, in situations that were very, very difficult. We faced some huge challenges in 2012, and God not only walked through them with us, He also made a way where there seemed to be no way, and He brought amazing deliverance. If I could explain all the details, I would, but suffice to say, God heals, God restores, God delivers! 2012, an extraordinary year of thankfulness for me!” http://www.verticalskyonline.com/ and http://www.facebook.com/FlightStudioNashville?filter=3
Amber Nelon Thompson of the Nelons: “I am thankful for my family and friends! If not for them I don’t know where I’d be today. I’m also thankful for the gift of singing. I never will be one of those people who dread going to work because I absolutely love what I do. But mostly I’m thankful for salvation. It is an amazing feeling to know that I have a God who loves and cares about me and who died so that I could live and one day be with Him and my loved ones who have already gone! He also gives new mercies and grace every day so when I mess up He still loves me and forgives me! His love amazes me!” http://www.thenelons.com/home.cfm
Soloist Allen Hester, Seoul, South Korea: “I am thankful for God allowing me to serve Him. I am thankful to be in the ministry. I am thankful that I get to see lives change. I am thankful for the Korean students that God has given me to disciple.” http://www.facebook.com/allenhester
Jonathan Bond of Young Harmony: “I’m thankful that even in the valley, God’s still God!” http://www.youngharmony.com/
Mark Lanier, Soloist and songwriter: “That I’ve made it to 2012! Basically God has given me 55 years. Memories, blessings, desires of my heart, someone to love and be loved by!” http://www.marklanierministries.com/
Susan Peck Jackson of Karen Peck and New River: “I am thankful that God has blessed me with a wonderful family, great friends, and a chance to share the love of Jesus.” http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/
Soloist Ed Crawford of Nashville, Tennessee: “I’m thankful for a loving God that gives us the
opportunity of choices. Also, I’m so very thankful for the talent He has given me and the desire to be His servant.” http://edcrawfordministries.com/
Gus Gaches of Legacy Five: “I am thankful for God’s provision, and for the blessing of family!” http://www.legacyfive.com/
Rusty Golden, Songwriter: “Other than the awesome power of God and His many blessings on me, I’m thankful for: My family, friends and the gift of music that continues to touch people years after they were hits on the radio.” http://www.facebook.com/rusty.golden1
Rodney Griffin of Greater Vision: “I’m thankful to have been in the same group for 19 years. Hard to believe!” http://greatervisionmusic.com/
Dusty Wells, Sales and Marketing, Word Entertainment: “What a great year 2012 has been! I am most thankful that God has taken me to a new place in Him this year, a place of refuge and strength. This year has been pivotal to me in regards to finally just sitting still and listening for His amazing voice to speak. And He has! So excited to see what 2013 has in store for all of us.” http://www.facebook.com/dusty.wells.50
At SGM Radio, we concur with the sentiments of all of our contributors, as we are thankful to God for all of His good and perfect gifts, His protection and guidance. We echo the words of Dusty Wells, in that we are all, “So excited to see what 2013 has in store for all of us!”
Please take the time and find the artists mentioned above on the web and on Facebook. Thank them for their contributions here and to all our lives through the music they share with us.

SGM Radio was thrilled to chat with the delightful Karen Peck Gooch, during our 2013 “In Depth With” series. We are excited to learn that Karen Peck and New River were the recipients of a Dove Award last night for their hit, “Revival.”
Karen Peck is well known to Gospel Music fans, having begun her singing career in 1981 with The LeFevres who then became known as The Nelons. Ten years later, Karen Peck and New River (KPNR) was born as Karen fulfilled a dream to travel full-time with her sister Susan. Today, Karen’s beautiful, soaring soprano voice is still joined by Susan’s melting alto vocals. The Peck sisters are joined by Jeff Hawes, who adds a rich lead/tenor that makes Karen Peck and New River an audience and radio favorite.
When asked to tell us something about each of the group’s members, Peck says: “Susan is loyal. Jeff is committed. Rickey is stable. Matthew is witty and smart. Kari is witty and organized. Trip is funny but is a great bus driver.” About herself, Karen says she has a “genuine love for people”. This love shows through Peck and her group, both onstage and off. The KPNR team has melded together to become a cohesive unit that continually strives to give their best. The trio has seen the fruit of their labors with several acknowledgments and nominations in Christian music awards.
Karen Peck and New River are multi-award winners with The Singing News and the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Awards. They have been nominated for Grammy Awards three times and many of their songs have reached number-one status on the Singing News radio charts.
Reach Out is the latest project for Karen Peck and New River, and the current single, “Sustaining Grace” is receiving a good response. Reach Out received two Dove Awards and has garnered at least two number-one songs at the time of this publication. The trio is in the process of recording a new album to be released this year. Karen also recently released her solo CD entitled How You Walk The Miles, to the delight of her many fans. Her lovely soprano is instantly recognizable and her passionate delivery makes each song an instant favorite.
With over 30 years in Gospel music, Karen Peck has sung hundreds of songs. However, “Four Days Late” is still her favorite song to perform because, she says, everyone can relate to the song. The Singing News proved the popularity of the song with the choice of “Four Days Late” as 2010’s Song Of The Decade.
Karen Peck seems to have accomplished so much in her illustrious career, but in the last couple of years she experienced something new: performing in the film “Joyful Noise” starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton. “I had a wonderful experience filming this movie!” says Peck. “It was one highlight of my career. I walked away feeling very proud to be a Christian and meeting actors that proclaim His name! Right now, no plans have been made to do another movie but I’m waiting next to the phone!”
Karen Peck is not only an accomplished vocal artist and movie actress, but also has been honing her talent as a speaker. “I’ve done several ladies’ conferences,” says Peck. “We do an annual conference in October at North Highland Baptist Church in Warrior, Alabama.” Peck speaks to the hearts’ of women through her experience as an artist, wife and mother. Karen and Ricky Gooch have two children, Matthew and Kari. When asked how she keeps her family strong, Karen replies, “By making sure that we live our lives to the best of our abilities for Jesus Christ.”
As a communicator and minister, Peck knows she needs to keep her own relationship with the Lord strong and vibrant. She does this through taking in all she can from Christian speakers and authors. “I love to read Christian books,” says Peck. “I also listen to Pastor Jentzen Franklin, Joyce Meyer, Beth Moore, T.D. Jakes and Johnny Hunt.” Bible study is also important and she says that one passage that has spoken to her personally is 1Corintians 10:13, which says, “God is faithful.”
Relying on God’s faithfulness in a new year is important for all of us, as we look ahead to what we hope to achieve. Peck says she has several personal goals for 2013. “ This year, more than ever, I want to draw closer to God,” says Peck. “To read His Word, and listen to His voice.”
Finally, we asked Karen what twitter-sized comment she would like our readers to remember about her. Karen laughs and replies, “I’m really not a blonde, I just act like one!”
