Creekside Gospel Music Convention is getting ever closer and we have some exciting news to share this month. You know by now that Creekside tickets are free but must be reserved. Please make your plans to join us in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee on November 2nd through 5th at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center.
We are happy to announce that the Freemans will be joining us again this year. Last year, they played to an excited crowd during the 2014 Diamond Awards. This fantastic family was also awarded twice during the evening, as they were presented with the Christian Country Group of the Year and and the Video/DVD of the Year for the poignant portrayal of “Lead Me Home.” Will they be winners again this year? Only you can
tell us that as you vote for your favorites in the 2015 Diamond Awards.
We are thrilled this month to tell you about the Showcases being held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the day at Creekside. Chapel Valley Records, Ava Kasich and Vonda Easley of Hey Y’all Media are working together to bring some wonderful artists to the daytime stage. Ava comments, “This will be my
third year at Creekside Gospel Convention and every year it gets better and better. The atmosphere of worship is wonderful and the addition of the Midnight Prayer is icing on the cake. Can’t wait to see what God has planned for us all this year! See you there!” Vonda notes, “I had such an awesome time working with Ava Kasich during the showcases at Southern Gospel Weekend in Oxford, Alabama and I am thrilled to get to do this again at Creekside Gospel Music Convention. This is going to be a great time and just look at some the artists participating: The Hoskins Family, From The Ashes, Exodus, John Lanier, The Riders, Majesty III, Malachi, Ascension Quartet, Clear Vision Quartet, Drummond Family, Webb Quartet and
