You have fantastic up-and-coming artists like The Ladd Family who did their part and got their fan base involved along long-time favorites. It really shows just how unique our industry is and how impressive the Southern Gospel fans can be.”
 
The Fan Favorite Artist of the Year category is the only one where the nominees are strictly chosen by the fans. The nominees in the other 23 award categories are chosen by the staff of AbsolutelyGospel.com and select media representatives.
 
Fans will get a chance to vote for their favorites in several categories beginning on February 1, 2012. The Absolutely Gospel (SGN) Music Awards will be handed out at a live ceremony on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at River of Life Church in Smyrna, TN. The event is tentatively scheduled to be streamed live like in 2010. Performers, hosts, and event sponsors are still being confirmed. More details on the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards will be announced at a later date.
 
The Ladd Family was recently named as one of 10 new artists to watch this year by the editorial staff of AbsolutelyGospel.com. The article, called “Ones-to-Watch 2012: New Faces. Fresh Sounds.”, was a part of the December 1, 2011 update for the popular e-zine and mentioned new artists that the staff of AGM felt would make the biggest impact in 2012.

ROCK HILL, S.C. – (September 26, 2011) – Emerging Southern Gospel duo The Ladd Family request the prayers and thoughts of Southern Gospel fans and industry alike. Group vocalist Melissa Ladd suffered a severe fall recently, causing the group to come off the road through the end of the year.
 
Paul Ladd, Melissa’s husband, said, “On August 31, Melissa passed out and fell on the baby we are expecting. She was in the hospital for a few days, and we found out that she had an undiagnosed heart condition in which doctors believe caused the initial episode. Melissa and the baby are doing better, but due to the potential for another passing-out episode and premature birth, doctors have ordered that Melissa remain on bed rest until she delivers.”
 
The Ladd Family will resume traveling again on December 31, 2011 in Carroll, Ohio at River of Life Church.
 
“We truly apologize for any inconvenience that this might have caused, and we covet your prayers,” continued Paul. “God has shown us His faithfulness time and time again, and we know that this situation will be no different.
