- Congrats on Connie Hopper winning another alto award this afternoon. This blogger considers Connie the best Southern Gospel artist to ever grace a Southern Gospel stage.
- It was nice for McCray Dove to pay homage to Ed O’Neal by joining the Dixie Melody Boys on stage to begin the night.
- Was glad to see Goodman Revival given some time after winning horizon group.
- Legacy Five was about as solid as I’ve seen them. See how much more enjoyable your performance can be when you don’t infuse your political views.
- Tribute Quartet decided to showcase some of the best material from their new album. Absolutely enjoyed “God Of The Storm”.
- We are at that point in the week where artists start to recycle their set. For individuals that watch the entire week, you are only left bored.
- Has Ivan Parker thought about retirement?
- Lost the web cam feed during a segment of the Talleys set tonight.
- Why did the convention board think it was a good idea putting the Browns last on the program after several artists did that 68 minute segment. The last thing I wanted to hear after that was barnyard noises.
