NASHVILLE, Tenn. â€“ (February 7, 2011) â€“ Coastal Media Group and SGN Scoops Digital, home of the Diamond Awards, are excited to announce the addition of new Southern Gospel duo Wilburn & Wilburn to the upcoming â€œDiamond Awards On Tourâ€ opening show this week in Nashville, Tennessee.
Wilburn & Wilburn is a brand new duo to hit the Gospel music scene this year. The group consists of 5-tive Singing News Fan Award winner Jonathan Wilburn and his son Jordan. Jonathan made a name for himself while traveling with Southern Gospel mainstays Gold City and his own family group The Wilburns. This father and son group combines a solid foundation of “old schoolâ€ with a flare of youthful presence to bring the message of Christ in song. After years of prayer, Wilburn & Wilburn are now on the road. They have a vision to bring fathers, sons, mothers, and daughters close again by expressing their love for one another through songs of faith and inspiration.
Rob Patz of Coastal Media Group said, â€œThe buzz surrounding Wilburn & Wilburn is already deafening. We are so excited about adding them to the first date of our â€˜Diamond Awards on Tourâ€™ shows. We know that the people of Nashville will fall in love with these guys just like we have.â€
“What a blessing it is to be a part of the â€˜Diamond awards On Tourâ€™,â€ mentioned Jonathan Wilburn. â€œI feel weird being the old guy on the program! I look forward to seeing all of my Middle Tennessee friends at Trevecca!”
