SGMG Pres. JUDY NELON said: “I fondly recall having the opportunity of presenting a GOSPEL MUSIC AWARD to the OAK RIDGE BOYS in LES ANGELES, CA in 1973. It just happened to have been JOE BONSALL’s first week with the group. Now, 37 years later, it is such a privilege to present the prestigious SGMG PRESIDENT’S HONOR to this same amazing group, consisting of DUANE ALLEN, WILLIAM LEE GOLDEN, RICHARD STERBAN and JOE BONSALL in recognition of their long successful career and significant contributions to the field of southern gospel music.”
The SGMG HARMONY HONORS CELEBRATION CONCERT will be held APRIL 19th at 7:00p (CT) at the GAYLORD OPRYLAND HOTEL in NASHVILLE. The SGMG CELEBRATION CONCERT is free and open to the public.
