National Quartet Convention 2013 Webcast Huge Success

Written by SGN Scoops on September 26, 2013 – 8:18 am -

Louisville, KY - During the week of September 8 through September 14 thousands of Southern Gospel Music fans, representing at least 40 states and more than a half dozen foreign countries nqcnewlogotraveled to Louisville, KY, for the 56th Annual National Quartet Convention. While thousands enjoyed the sights and sounds of the NQC during it’s final year in the city of Louisville live and in person, according to NQC Executive Vice President, Clarke Beasley, almost as many people enjoyed the sights and the sounds of NQC 2013 via the NQC Webcast. “Many who were unable to attend the event in person had the opportunity to watch performances taking place in Freedom Hall live, as it happened, or on demand through the NQC’s  website,” Beasley explained. “All events taking place in Freedom Hall throughout NQC Week were made available through the Webcast.  The NQC Subscriber based Webcast achieved an all-time record number of subscribers and proved to be a tremendous success.” 
The NQC has offered the Webcast for several years now; however, in celebration of the final year in Louisville, the NQC made the Friday webcast available to the public for free. NQC Free Friday far exceeded expectations and produced viewership from all over the world, including more than 10,000 people in 26 different countries. “NQC Free Friday featured a true event broadcast experience,” Beasley stated, “ with dedicated hosts hosting the broadcast throughout the day.”  In addition to viewing the festivities of NQC, 2013 over the NQC Webcast on a computer, subscribers to the Webcast for the first time ever were also  able to view the Webcast on their televisions through their Roku device. This proved to be so popular that the NQC Board has announced that it intends to ultimately make its Roku channel available to the public as a free channel. “This a great opportunity and yet another way for the NQC to grow and expose the great music of the NQC to the world,” Beasley shares.
The NQC Webcast is available on demand throughout the end of November for those who missed viewing the event live. Fans may visit www.nqconline.com to enjoy the sights and sounds of NQC 2013.
The 2014 NQC moves from Louisville to the city of Pigeon Forge, TN, and will take place at the Leconte Center during the week of September 21-27. Complete information about the 2014 event, as well as a complete schedule of activities may be obtained by visiting www.nqconline.com.

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on September 19, 2013 – 8:44 am -

NQC(Louisville, KY) – Daywind recording artists and a Daywind songwriter were among the big winners at the 2nd Annual NQC Music Awards held at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville last Friday. Popular mixed group, The Perrys, received the award for Album of the Year for their cd “Through the Night.” Dianne Wilkinson added to her distinguished career by being named 2013 Songwriter of the Year. Brian Free and Assurance received the award for Video of the Year for the music video to their #1 song “I Want To Be That Man.”

In an emotional acceptance, Libbi Stuffle thanked her group for carrying on despite tremendous adversity. Libbi’s husband and the group’s leader, Tracy Stuffle, suffered a stroke early this year and is recovering under Libbi’s care in Nashville, TN.

Dianne Wilkinson graciously thanked the crowd for the award while encouraging the audience. “More than ever, sinners need to be saved; Christians need to be encouraged; the Church needs to be awakened; and God needs to be glorified…and we don’t have long to do it,” exclaimed Wilkinson, who has had several #1 songs in the past year to go along with her past hits recorded by the Cathedrals, Kingdom Heirs, Mark Trammell Quartet and many more.

Brian Free and Assurance’s video director, Scott Godsey, accepted on behalf of the group for their win. “I Want To Be That Man,” was the first #1 single from the album Nothing But Love. The album has since birthed a second #1 song, “Calvary’s Cry.” with the third single, “Nothing But Love” now playing at radio stations nationwide. The group and the recording received seven nominations overall for the NQC Music Awards.

“We are so proud of our artists and songwriters. I see behind the scenes how hard they work and how pure their hearts are. It is wonderful when their fans recognize their efforts in this way,” said Ed Leonard, president of Daywind Records.

Along with these great talents, Daywind Records is home to such artists as the Karen Peck and New River, Greater Vision, Legacy Five, and more. Daywind is distributed to Christian retail by New Day Christian Distributors (www.newdaychristian.com) and to the general market by Select O Hits.

2013 National Quartet Convention – A Celebration of Two Decades of Memories

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on September 18, 2013 – 10:28 am -

Louisville, KY – The 56th Annual National Quartet Convention is now in the history books. For seven 2013 NQCconsecutive days, Southern Gospel Music fans from more than 40 states and at least a half dozen countries experienced the city of Louisville, KY, one more time. The week-long event officially concluded on Saturday, September 14, as production trucks were packed, exhibit booths disassembled, cars, vans and buses loaded, and the Kentucky Fair & Expo Center silent once again, marking the end of an era – the end of the National Quartet Convention in Louisville.

Southern Gospel Music’s premier event first moved to Louisville from the city of Nashville in 1994. There were those who were not in favor of the move from Music City USA. Even Convention Board members admitted that the move was quite bold. Louisville’s Freedom Hall held twice as many seats as the Muncipal Auditorim in Nashville, TN, which had been the NQC home for more than a decade. Fortunately, for the NQC Board, fans, artists and industry members, the move proved to be the right one, as the 1994 NQC set record attendance figures, with evening concert attendance more than doubling and the exhibit area nearly quadrupling. Since arriving in Louisville, the Convention has experienced unprecedented growth, with many special events taking place over the past two decades.

Many Convention attendees, including artists and fans have enjoyed all 20 years in Louisville. While bittersweet sentiments could be felt throughout the 2013 NQC, an air of excitement was also present. Memories of Louisville will forever remain in hearts; nevertheless, eager anticipation awaits for those who make preparations to converge upon the city that will soon be the NQC’s new home. According to Clarke Beasley, NQC Executive Director, the final year in Louisville was a great success. “This year many nights had greater attendance than last year, and our subscriber based webcast set an all-time record,” Beasley stated. “Fans attending enjoyed another wonderful year in Louisville, but there is obviously eager anticipation for next year in Pigeon Forge, as advances for next year’s seating and hotel reservations set advance sales records. So we are very excited as the NQC begins a new era.”

The 2013 Convention provided many special memories during it’s final year in Louisville. Many of Gospel music’s most popular recording artists were featured at this year’s event, including multi-award winning recording artists like The Gaither Vocal Band, The Gatlins, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Jason Crabb, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, The Isaacs, Gordon Mote, The Booth Brothers, The Kingdom Heirs, The Hoppers, Greater Vision and The Mark Trammel Quartet. Additionally, the event featured noted speakers such as Ken Davis, Dr David Jeremiah, Dr Johnny Hunt and Dennis Swanberg. As attendees reminisced about the past 20 years in Louisville, they look forward to making many new memories in Pigeon Forge. “I am really excited,” one long-time Convention attendee stated. “I’ve been to Louisville every year, and I attended the Convention in Nashville before Louisville. In fact, I haven’t missed a year since 1983, and I don’t plan to miss being in Pigeon Forge in 2014. Wherever the music is, I plan to go!”

The 2014 National Quartet Convention will take place at the Leconte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN, as Gospel Music’s premier annual event will take place the week of September 21-27, 2013. Visit www.nqconline.com, or call 1-800-845-8499 for complete information.
