SoGospelNews.com Announces Nominees for 2010 SGN Music Awards
The Perrys and Karen Peck & New River Earn Most Nominations Among Artists, while Producer/Songwriter Wayne Haun Lands Most Individual Nominations

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Deon and Susan Unthank, administrators of SoGospelNews.com, are proud to announce the nominees for the 2010 SGN Music Awards.  As in year’s past, the nominees were chosen by the staff of SoGospelNews.com and select media representatives.  Starting on February 1, 2010, the fans will get a chance to vote for their favorites in each category.

“We are so excited about this year’s SGN Music Awards,” responded Deon Unthank, administrator of SoGospelNews.com, the Southern Gospel industry’s largest e-zine.  “This is our ninth year to hand out our awards, and we believe the staff has once again outdone themselves in choosing this year’s nominees!”

As far as nominations go, two artists tied for the most nominations among performers this year.  Both The Perrys and Karen Peck & New River landed a stellar nine nominations apiece.  Both groups earned nods in the Song of the Year (“If You Knew Him” and “I Want to Thank You” respectively), Album of the Year (Almost Morning and No Worries respectively), Fan Favorite Artist of the Year, and Mixed Group of the Year categories.

2008’s Pacesetter the Dove Brothers earned eight nods – including Song of the Year (“Hold On”), Album of the Year (Hold On), and Special Event Project of the Year for their 10-year anniversary project Decennial.

Following behind those artists were Legacy Five, The Isaacs, and Booth Brothers with seven nominations apiece.  Triumphant Quartet and Brian Free & Assurance both landed six nominations.  Two artists received five nominations – the Bowling Family (formerly Mike & Kelly Bowling) and Talley Trio.

The Freemans, Jeff & Sheri Easter, and the Gaither Vocal Band all earned four nominations, while the Dixie Echoes, HisSong, Greater Vision, and Sisters earned three nods.

Several artists received double nominations, including the Kingdom Heirs, Gold City, The Greenes, the Ball Brothers, and McMillan & Life.

Songwriter and producer Wayne Haun earned the most individual nominations for his work during 2009.  In addition to landing in the Producer of the Year (Professional) category (an award he won in 2008), Wayne earned an additional eight nominations for his songwriting and production work this year. – including three separate nominations in the Album of the Year category (for producing The Perrys’ Almost Morning, Triumphant Quartet’s Everyday, and HisSong’s Journey Through the Sky).

Rodney Griffin
earned six individual nominations for his songwriting work.

Earning five individual nominations were songwriters Marty Funderburk (2009’s Songwriter of the Year winner) and Rusty Golden. Gospel legend Bill Gaither, songwriter Joel Lindsey, and The Perrys’ lead singer Joseph Habedank all earned four individual nominations.  Dianne Wilkinson, Lari Goss, Ben Isaacs, Barry Weeks, Jason Crabb, Sonya Isaacs Yeary, and Gordon Mote all landed three individual nominations for their work in 2009.

The Pacesetter Award is awarded to any artist, individual, or organization which has shown great strides in the industry and has raised the bar for others. This year’s nominees for the 2010 Pacesetter are new Gospel music celebration Branson Gospel Music Convention, Crossroads Music Group, SGShowPrep’s Chuck Peters, digital news outlet SGN Scoops Digital, and Vine Records.

Focus on the Family Radio Theatre® introduces first-ever full-cast dramatization of the C.S. Lewis classic

Written by Scoops Staff on October 8, 2009 – 5:17 pm -

NOTE TOC.S. LEWIS FANS: OUR COLUMNIST USES SCREWTAPE & WORMWOOD TO DISCUSS THE DAN BROWN NOVEL ANGELS AND DEMONS IN THIS MONTHS SCOOPS > CHECK IT OUT ON PAGE 14 OF THIS MONTH’S SCOOPS.

‘The Screwtape Letters’ Stars Andy Serkis from ‘The Lord of the Rings’

Colorado Springs, CO – The Devil is back in time for Halloween in C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, an audio production from Peabody-award-winning Focus on the Family Radio Theatre®. The full-cast dramatization of the diabolical classic debuted worldwide today.

Hosted by C.S. Lewis’ stepson, Douglas Gresham, and starring Andy Serkis (Gollum, The Lord of the Rings) as the voice of Screwtape, The Screwtape Letters was recorded in London by world-class actors with an original score and motion picture quality sound design, and includes a “making of” DVD that features footage from C.S. Lewis’ home, church and other frequented locations. Also included are a bonus CD of 10 original songs and a collector’s booklet.

The Screwtape story centers around correspondence shared between Screwtape, a senior demon, and Wormwood, his apprentice, as Screwtape mentors Wormwood in the skills necessary to entrap, dominate and torture humans. Most of the 31 letters lead into dramatic scenes set either in hell or World War II-era London. In writing this masterpiece, Lewis re-imagined hell as a gruesome bureaucracy with demons laboring in a vast enterprise. Avoiding their own painful torment, as well as a desire for control, is what drives demons to persecute their “patients.”

Anticipation for the release of Screwtape has been building among audio enthusiasts as well as Lord of the Rings and C.S. Lewis fans. An entire Web site (www.screwtape.com) was built to support the production’s debut, providing downloadable ringtones, avatars and wallpaper. Fans can also follow conversations between Screwtape and Wormwood on Twitter.

“Bringing The Screwtape Letters to the world of audio drama has been a career dream,” said director Paul McCusker. “To work with this caliber of cast and crew on such a beloved classic is an unparalleled experience. And the themes are timeless. The struggles, fears and failures addressed in this work still plague humanity today. In our culture, we’re hesitant to talk about evil. Here, in the character of Screwtape, evil speaks for itself.”

The Screwtape Letters was produced by Focus on the Family Radio Theatre® and is distributed by Tyndale, with full authorization from the C.S. Lewis estate. For more information on The Screwtape Letters, or to schedule an interview with a member of the Radio Theatre team, contact Lisa Anderson at 719-548-5883 or lisa.anderson@fotf.org.
