NASHVILLE (January 25, 2013) — Some of the top names in Gospel Music will take the stage January 29 in Nashville at Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Trinity Music City, as Grammy Award-winning Christian music artist Jason Crabb hosts a special live TBN taping of the 2013 SGMG Harmony Honors.
Sponsored by the Southern Gospel Music Guild (SGMG), the annual SGMG Harmony Honors celebrates the best and brightest singers, songwriters, quartets, and groups in this unique American musical genre that has comforted, inspired, and entertained generations of fans.
This year the Harmony Honors recognize gospel songwriters Mosie Lister, Squire Parsons, Ronny Hinson, Rodney Griffin, Phil Cross, and Dianne Wilkinson. SGMG president Judy Nelon noted that many of the songs penned by these writers are now considered classics, and have been recorded and performed by scores of artists in gospel, country, and other genres of music. “It is a privilege to be able to honor this elite group of gospel music’s legacy songwriters,” she said. “Their work continues to inspire individuals of all ages and backgrounds.”
This special edition of TBN’s signature “Praise the Lord” show will feature performances from a number of popular artists, including the Booth Brothers, the Bowling Family, Gold City, Greater Vision, Jeff & Sheri Easter, the Kingdom Heirs, LeFevre Quartet, the Nelons, Three Bridges, Tribute Quartet and Palmetto State Quartet featuring Grammy Award-winning country music great Wynonna Judd.
“I am honored to host the 2013 SGMG Harmony Honors and to be a part in recognizing these amazing songwriters,” said Jason Crabb, a regular TBN “Praise the Lord” host. “I cut my teeth on their songs, and their work has been a big part of my own musical heritage.”
TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch noted that Gospel Music has been a regular part of TBN’s history over the past 40 years. “We’ve welcomed many Gospel greats over the years,” he said. “The rich harmonies and inspirational message of this sacred music have been a blessing to generations of TBN viewers. We’re honored once again to host the SGMG Harmony Honors.”
