PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (September 27, 2017)– Just moments ago, during the Singing News Fan Awards, Joseph Habedank was awarded the Favorite Soloist Award. The ceremony was held on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 during the NQC’s 60th Anniversary being held at Pigeon Forge, TN’s LeConte Center.
To say that Habedank was surprised is an understatement. “I am honored, shocked and humbled,” Habedank said. “Thank you to those who voted, thanks to my wife Lindsay who is my rock, and thank you to everyone who has encouraged me along the way. To God be all the glory.”
The award comes in the midst of a very busy year for Habedank, as he’s released a new project, set out on a new tour and wrote the title track to country superstar Reba’s new inspirational album “Sing It Now,” among other activities.
